so the xenophobe terrorists made the vulcan human hybrid baby using dna they got from an operative on enterprise

aren't there a bunch of humans and vulcans on earth? wouldn't that dna have been easier to get? why does everything have to be so convoluted?

@Taweret I'd feel a lot worse about that if not for, y'know, the whole "making a baby to murder and harvest its brain" thing, and the "let's abandon a whole shipload of babies to die and mutiny against the suggestion that we save them" thing. IT'S KIND OF A THING.

Now that you bring that up, I remember being impressed by it.

personal log supplemental, i near the end of my enterprise journey but i am determined to go out in a blaze of complaining 

@Taweret You're supposed to feel smart for remembering, before the reveal, that "Carl Sagan Memorial Station" is another name for Mars Sojourner.

personal log supplemental, i near the end of my enterprise journey but i am determined to go out in a blaze of complaining 

@Taweret

Carl Sagan is cool and all but is he someone that people are going to be memorializing in hundreds of years?

@mal i would be very surprised

personal log supplemental, i near the end of my enterprise journey but i am determined to go out in a blaze of complaining 

@mal @Taweret

No, you misunderstand. The Martian Historical Society isn't honoring Sagan, They're honoring NASA/JPL.

"Carl Sagon Memorial Station" is now the official name for the Mars Sojourner, even though nobody calls it that.

It's entirely reasonable to assume that the "Mars Historical Preservation Society" would clean up Sojourner/Pathfinder and put up a plaque.

personal log supplemental, i near the end of my enterprise journey but i am determined to go out in a blaze of complaining 

@mal @Taweret "Sagan", not "Sagon".

Whatever.

Carl.

I mean, I'm pretty sure if we get to the point where hybridization with an alien species were possible there will definitely be groups that will never consider the hybrids to be "real humans" or have "souls" or some other shit like that.

Fuck, this even happens now with people of mixed race in the West, Korea, and Japan.

I like how they put a hat on that kid so they wouldn't have to do her ears ... ... but in this shot the hat is not pulled down quite far enough.

You can tell she's not Vulcan.

@Taweret

Terrorist guy speech doesn't have much impact unless you spend time building up the character to lead to that point.

Like Terrorist guy could have been a minor character in Season 3 that started rising in political power in the background. Hell, you could have introduced him by having Tucker listen to his Youtubish videos after his Sister was killed.

@Tau_Leonis we don't develop characters on this show. what do you think this is? ds9?

personal log supplemental, i near the end of my enterprise journey but i am determined to go out in a blaze of complaining 

@Taweret

Like showing a fringe right-wing xenophobe faction starting to slowly gain more and more traction in United Earth (or whatever they call it in ENT.) as a background detail in Season 3 and 4 would have both been realistic and much better story telling rather than "Terra Prime" appearing as randomly as taco gas.

re: personal log supplemental, i near the end of my enterprise journey but i am determined to go out in a blaze of complaining 

@Taweret I'm just going to assume he's talking about the T'pucker terrorist baby here.

re: personal log supplemental, i near the end of my enterprise journey but i am determined to go out in a blaze of complaining 

@Taweret "and I for one will not let that baby get away with such a flagrant abuse of authority! I am taking this baby's behavior up with my supervisor right now!" like

personal log supplemental, i near the end of my enterprise journey but i am determined to go out in a blaze of complaining 

@Taweret Wasn't the implication that it was supposed to be a propaganda piece?

Like they were going to pretend it was legitimately a T'Poll/Tucker baby, but they got rumbled early by that dying woman?

I think I actually watched this episode when it premiered because they ran it back to back with These Are The Voyages and I wanted to watch the whole finale "event". I remember like none of it other than the recap.

personal log supplemental, i near the end of my enterprise journey but i am determined to go out in a blaze of complaining 

@Taweret wait - are the Vulcans saying alien-human hybrid?

personal log supplemental, i near the end of my enterprise journey but i am determined to go out in a blaze of complaining 

@Taweret
It does help most people a lot to think of this two parter as the real Enterprise finale and of These Are The Voyages as the finale of the continuous run of Trek from 1987 through 2005 that only happens to have been produced as an episode of Enterprise because that's the only show that was on.

personal log supplemental, i near the end of my enterprise journey but i am determined to go out in a blaze of complaining 

@tparadox @Taweret no I think the finale is bad enough that we can let Enterprise have it all to itself, no need to sully the good name of other shows

@robotcarsley
@Taweret
What's that bad about it if you cut out the Riker stuff and ignore that it's skipping over like five years because they didn't get enough time to get to where they wanted to end organically?
