Watching the entirety of TNG and DS9 again with my girlfriend in the last few months, and all through DS9 I kept finding myself wondering why they never had Ro show up with the Maquis. I can't imagine they'd have forgotten her, so I wonder if maybe the actress just didn't wish to reprise her role? Any one know for sure what happened there? It would have been such a good callback and we both wanted to know what happened with her. And Riker's clone, for that matter! Plenty of good material left on the floor with those two
TNG & DS9 are my two favorite shows & I often dream about what could've been. Imagine if after DS9 "What We Leave Behind" & before TNG movie "Nemesis" they would've made a crossover major motion picture or even better a trilogy! Hey Marvel does a great job having all that star power on screen at once, why not Star Trek? I'd love to hear any ideas you might have on what the story could be!
Cloned armies that are set on one task of satisfying their generals (with almost no comforts) which in their society generals are basically gods. The entire time you are seeing how a clone army can take over so many armies like Klingon and the Federation and being like no way, that must have been what happened at the end of the Revenge of the Sith. Something I noticed
So it appears no one here noticed but the guys over at Baltimore Knife and Steel who do Man at Arms Reforged Made a replica of the Sword of Kahless, not just any replica though, they forged the damn thing from a hunk of Damascus steel in what's probably one of the most difficult methods to create something that complicated.
Why does the station fire green phasers at O'Brien's runabout as he escapes near the end of "Whispers"? The station typically fires yellow phasers like Cardassian ships do, and Federation phasers are orange, so what gives?
This episode is so bad.
Dualing prophets? What the hell is going on. I liked it when alien religion was more mysterious, and subtle.
Worst of all, you've got that disgusting scene with Kira and odo acting cute. For some reason this was maximum cringe for me.
So I needed some placeholder text for a demo I was working on and I knew of Riker Ipsum but fancied something a bit different. I couldn't think of the best place to put this so I thought here would be a good shot, I give you Sisko Ipsum: https://lorem.mcoombes.online/
First, let me say I love DS9. It is easily my favorite television show of all time. Occasionally, though, I find something wrong with it that I just can't look beyond and let go. One of those things is the wildly inconsistent value/buying power of latinum.
In S4E24 *Body Parts*, Quark is offered 500 bars for his remains. He and Rom say 500 bars equals 10,000 strips or 1,000,000 slips. At the risk of being U.S.-centric, let's assume 1 strip = $1 U.S. So 500 bars would be equivalent to 1 million dollars. A nice sum of money, which is why he quickly and rashly accepts the bid, hijinks ensue, great episode plays out. However, in S6E10 *The Magnificent Ferengi,*
Moogie....er, Ishka, is taken prisoner by the Dominion. Grand Nagus Zek asks Quark to rescue her, Quark decides to assemble an all-Ferengi commando squad, hilarity ensues, yet another great episode plays out. There are a few plot holes in the episode, but those bother me less than what Zek is offering as a reward for the return of his intimate partner, financial advisor and the woman he professes great love for. A paltry 50 bars of gold-pressed latinum. Really, Zek? $100,000 is the best you can do? Brunt, a government bureaucrat, offers Quark 10x that amount for his vacuum desicated remains. Granted, Brunt is a bit obsessed with ruining Quark's life, but still. Zek is, presumably, the richest Ferengi alive. 50 bars should be pocket change. Also, Quark tells the team the reward is only 20 bars. Work out that math and they're all going on a potentially deadly mission for less than $7,000 each. That sounds more like a Hew-maahn mercy mission than the greedy Ferengi I know.
.Another time this got under my skin was at the end of the series when Rom wants to buy the bar from Quark. He offers him 5,000 bars and even says he was expecting to be haggled into paying at least 8,000. That's $16,000,000. Where is Rom getting that kind of money on a station engineering tech's salary? (I'm assuming non-federation citizens must be compensated for their work) So, is Rom actually a financial genius with secret investment funds he's been nursing for years or did the writers just use random numbers when writing of the amounts?
Does this bother anyone else? Or am I being ultra nit-picky with this?
