    Free sci-fi on line

    Hi fellas. I haven't a clue if anyone has watched this channel or if there are similar venues (not necessarily on YouTube) out there with free on line legal sci-fi (or illegal maybe lol), but sometimes there are pretty good tidbits on the DUST YouTube channel. It's a channel featuring sci-fi short films (sometimes not so short). They release quite a bit of content. Have a look, you may like it (or not). If you have come across anything similar, feel free to share!

    Star Trek: Discovery

    I've watched the first two seasons. After the first I wasn't a big fan, but... it's Star Trek, so I figured I'd watch the second as well. Believe it or not, it got even worse in the second season. There is actually quite a lot of potential in the premise, but it's executed so terribly bad. It's riddled with continuity errors. In some episodes by the end of the episode they've contradicted everything the episode was build on. Sarek is a joke, he's not a Vulcan at all, more like a human with emotional expression problems and highly illogical. The story as told rarely makes any sense whatsoever. The characters make the stupidest decisions/mistakes you can imagine. They often spend tens of minutes on highly cringe-worthy emotional overacting while the rest of the episode lacks depth and credibility. It's really like they're making it up as they go along without taking into account what has already happened or how they're going to continue on from what they came up with this week. They even have an episode that continues on a story from a previous episode, but the thing it builds on never actually happened and was probably cut from the final edit or something (as in: "previously on Star Trek Discovery": and then they show some scene they've never aired before and later in the episode they build on that...). The people writing the series don't have any clue whatsoever about science or how to make something that's a bit beyond science sound credible/plausible/acceptable. They make use of the "deus-ex-machina" technique in virtually every single episode to salvage whatever has gone horribly wrong this time and so on and so on... It's quite bad. I really don't have any good words for this show. I'm with dBLOOD on this one, watch it, but don't expect too much. In fact if you manage to watch it all, you probably deserve a fan award. ^_^ All of the above being said, I also have to admit I'm not a big fan of the 'new incarnation' of Star Trek in general either, the new movies I mean. As stand alone movies they are quite decent, but they stand completely apart from everything I held dear in the Star Trek series from before 2008. It all feels very Marvel/DC-ey, very far removed from the original Star Trek feel. Of course, everything is about the money these days, so these movies are probably not written for original fans, but more for the general public. Star Trek had been having image problems for years and with this re-imagining they've straightened that out. Star Trek is cool again with a larger group of people, but unfortunately that is to the detriment of the original qualities in the series. As another side note: I wouldn't have too high hopes for the other new upcoming series either, as they are ordered and created by the same studio and same group of people.

    Welcome Back in Time...

    Awesome that you put this place back together. Massive thumbs up! Man... the memories from back in the day. I have no words to describe the feeling of nostalgia, hehehe. After a decade or so, I do feel a bit lost here lol. :-)

    Star Trek: Discovery

    Yeah, I’m not exactly captivated with the new season. I’m finding it difficult to like any of the characters too and I can’t tell where the story is going. You think after all this time with no ST show they’d manage to come up with something decent. Here’s hoping for Picard.

    Star Trek: Discovery

    I am still watching STD, its ridiculous! The more I watch the more I laugh. Overdramatized, ridiculous, twist in every episode. The story is insane! I hate most of the characters, the only one I like is the red hair ensign Tilly. Everybody is suffering and crying all the time, every major character has its own agenda, its basically like Game Of Thrones with bad writing, acting, and characters. Do not watch it if you can only do it for money, doesn't worth a penny, but I do recommend Star Trek fans to watch it, just to experience the insanity. My favourite episode without spoilers is when dark matter has borderline magical attributes... If you want something that is more similar to classic Star Trek, watch The Orville. Its somewhat scuffed, but "it's heart is at the right place".

    Is anyone watching the new series yet? I'm holding off until I finish my run of Voyager. Any thoughts so far?

    The Planet we live on... The Earth.

    Ok, 47.5 C is about 20 too high. I’d settle for double digits, though...

    The Planet we live on... The Earth.

    Wow, Outside of my house today, it was 47.5+C/118F degrees. How are you Northerners dealing with the heat right now? Lets talk about the state of the planet. This doesn't have to be a climate debate, or one on global politics, but they are both an obvious place to start...
  16. I like both Star Wars and Star Trek, although I'm a STar Trek-fan. The number one difference between the two is that Star Wars is space fantasy, while star Trek is science fiction. Technology in Star Wars is handled in a very mundane way, with a few words, it has no focus, unlike in Star Trek. As Arthur C. Clarke said once "...science fiction is something that could happen - but usually you wouldn't want it to. Fantasy is something that couldn't happen - though often you only wish that it could." My biggest problem with Star Wars - other than the fact that Disney destroyed the franchise - is that until the Disney movies, only prequels were made, no proper material about the actual present of the SW universe.

    Sci fi books

    If you like hard sci-fi, read some books from Stephen Baxters Xeelee Sequence guys! Flux is not that good in my opinion, but Raft, Vacuum Diagrams, and Timelike Infinity is awesome!

    Nausicca Homeworld of the Nausicaan. Thanks for the update TFMF, I just checked the list and Nausicaan is already on the list, but that's the species not the planet. 🙂 [and I'm also being lazy]

    Miscellaneous thread

  20. What are your favourite Sci-Fi moments or scenes? In any film, TV series, publication, etc. Here's an example: How to Captain a Starship I just remembered: A long time ago, I used my favourite scene/moments as my Avatar on this site (in animated GIF form). e.g. Sorry for the video, but i cant find my old GIFs...

    Star Trek Word Game

    Optical Data Network Frequently referred to as "ODN" on DS9, but also referred to in Star Trek: Voyager season 1 ("The Cloud") when Chakotay tells Ensign Kim the nebula had knocked out their "Optical Data Network". (Sorry, couldn't think of something starting with "2" 😛 ) Side note: list on page 1 has finally been updated!

    New Series Announced

    Another Update: Kurtman has confirmed that the new series will remain in the current (Roddenberry) cannon, not the new Kelvin timeline. Read the article below for all of the details, but here it is in a nutshell: [POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT] - This may not even be the correct story... Romulus is destroyed by a supernova, several years after the Nemesis movie. Spok's attempts at stopping the incident fail. Nero goes crazy trying to track down Spok. Picard is (or may be) the Ambassador to Romulus at the time. Picards life and the entire balance of the galaxy, is altered in a massive way... Read the Hollywood Reporter And also checkout the Star Trek: Countdown comic series I'm getting very excited about this... I'm off to watch ST:TNG - Unification parts 1 & 2 And then Nemesis again 🙂

    Doctor Who

    Dear God! I just found this, sorry to anyone who thinks this is old news! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxB1gB6K-2A Reminds me of the time I learned Tate will be the new companion. To be honest, I did not like the idea at all, but I was wrong, she was brilliant playing Donna, she is one of my favourite New Doctor Who companion. BTW guy I hope you know that Twitch is streaming the classic Doctor Who episodes from time to time, like today (08/01/2019) for example! Watch and co-stream them on !
