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 oh noes his baby that he didn't actually have anything to do with making died. like that baby that Phlox made in the lab and then harvested his brain and stuck it into the body Tucker is currently wearing also died, but nobody cared. 9_______9

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 don't remember much of anything Season 1 or 2 (I don't think I missed much lol) but showing Tucker dealing with the death of his Sister, getting sucked into the Terra Prime faction, having a inner conflict due to a genuine friendship that develops with T'Pol over time and then turning against Terra Prime would have been a good character arc.

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 did he do the "slow, gradually speeding up while standing up" clap and then everybody else starts clapping and then it turns into thunderous applause? or was it just him clapping an embarrassingly long time like Citizen Kane?

@Taweret It's important to have a friend in the audience to get the applause ball rolling.

@Taweret Oh, I see, they've all got silver things pinned to their chest. (Except Phlox. Looks like his is on his wrist?)

Were they translators or something? To indicate that Star Trek doesn't have magical invisible translators, yet?

@apLundell yeah i think they said they were translators

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 like how Phlox is wearing his on his wrist.

I assume that's his way of saying "I don't need this thing, but they told me I had to wear one."

@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.

@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.

@Taweret Riker was supposed to name the kid too, but was doing dishes in the mess hall

@Taweret [Somehow I missed a few of these Enterprise posts last night. Too busy shaking my fist at the Mozilla Foundation, I guess.]

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.
