  1. Hi guys, I hope you've been coping well over the last Year of Hell. I had a bunch of issues with the domain which took an age to resolve, so apologies all for the downtime! Made a few changes to the forums - all old content can now be found in the "Archives" to keep things a bit tidier. I might move a few of last years discussions into the new sections. I'm also looking for a few suggestions: NiteSciFi's slogan - currently "Science Fiction Community" - maybe you can think of something better? 🙂 Forum Banners - are you happy with the images for each forum on the home page? Layout of the forums / categories - Any suggestions most welcome.

    The media definitely doesn’t help. But what’s worse is SOCIAL media. Did you know 50% of Facebook users are Virologists, and the other 50% are legal experts? so many arrogant pricks thinking they know the lifecycle of the virus and how to stay safe (or thinking it’ll just give them a mild cough so no need to worry about staying indoors). i want to get rid of Facebook so much... but just can’t bring myself to do it. I must secretly enjoy the negativity. I hate people.

    How is everyone coping with the current crisis? I’m still working as normal (my company supplies food to vessels so quite critical) but my partner and son are both off indefinitely. Thankfully no one we know has caught it yet but the UK is definitely getting more severe. Is everyone ok health and job wise? One our biggest suppliers (very big UK foodservice operator) told us they have £5m worth of stock going out of date very soon - it could break them. 😳
  4. Season 3 did have a couple of cringe worthy episodes/moments, but it was great to me. It was the first time since the dominion war that we had a proper story arc. When enterprise was first aired, I don’t actually think I watched it properly until season 2 - that’s when I felt they were making it more “Star Trek” and less something new and different. (Which always fails if you don’t look after the older fans too) Minefield and Regeneration were awesome. Our first taste of the Romulans and Borg in one season! Season 4 was definitely very strong. The mini-arcs, I loved. I wish they did this more before.
  5. Although part of me hopes they do resurrect the Borg and repair some of the damage Voyager did to make them look weak.
  6. Spoiler tag added! So, 3 episodes in. I'm very pleased so far, although pacing is a little slow in places with episodes 2 & 3. I was hoping to see more previous cast by now - 3 episodes in and they just kind of dropped Hue in there with little introduction... :S But it was still nice to see him. I'm really liking Doctor Jurati's character - I hope she sticks around. (photo below if you're like me and still having to google the main cast to remember their names) I'm curious to see how the whole Borg thing turns out. I can't quite tell if they're going to be a main component of the season or if they're just using the borg cube to house the Romulan storyline.
  7. Ahhhhh! 24 hours! (For us in the UK) Unbelievably excited! 😄 😄 😄
  8. This may only be for UK users currently. Britbox (a BBC/ITV collaboration - their attempt at a Netflix style platform) have just added 600 classic doctor who episodes for online viewing. https://www.britbox.co.uk/doctorwho I thought this was quite exciting - first major attempt at (legally) deploying the back catalogue of Doctor Who online for streaming. 🙂
  9. Is it really that Borg themed? We’ve seen the cube once but as has been theorised, this could just be 7of9’s toy rescued from when the Borg collapsed in voyagers finale. Lal is a good theory - I just watched that episode of TNG. Great potential there.
  10. I could not be more excited about this. It could be Patrick Stewart sitting in a chair talking for an hour and I’d still love it.
  11. Hmmm, I suppose that is a possibility... but if they could just bring back the Borg completely that'd also be pretty great. 😃 B-4 with all of Data's memories. There is hope!
  12. Ok, not exactly the biggest revelation... but exciting!
  13. Hi Tetsuo! Hope you're doing good. 🙂
  14. 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.
  15. Is anyone watching the new series yet? I'm holding off until I finish my run of Voyager. Any thoughts so far?
  16. Apocalypse Rising Star Trek DS9 season 5 premier. This is the season things proper start to kick off with the dominion, as they infiltrate the Klingon empire. 😎
  17. Ok, 47.5 C is about 20 too high. I’d settle for double digits, though...
  18. 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!
  19. Will need to give this a re-watch. Think it's available on NowTV in the UK. I caught the first episode but didn't quite catch on, but trailer for season 2 looks cool. Seems more serious than what I saw.
  20. 2018 has been a fairly turbulent year around the world, but I hope we can all focus on the good things as we look forward to 2019. For me, by far my biggest and proudest moment of 2018 was becoming a dad. 2019 has some exciting prospects and events coming up (And of course there's a lot of new Sci-Fi to look forward to!)
  21. Wow - I had no idea this was in the pipeline. So is this a movie?
  22. Oddly, I last updated this on December 9th 2006. It is now December 9th 2018 and I am updating it once more... Rank table restored!
  23. Actually, I did bring an IRC channel online: https://nitescifi.com/nsf/irc The server/channel are at the top if you want to use your own client. It’ll be empty just now as I don’t have that much time for IRC, but it’s there if anyone wants it. 🙂
