We are speaking of Discovery going to the future. In Calypso, we learn that the ship had been abandon in a nebula for 1,000 years. It seems clear now that the computer combined with the sphere data will develop into Zora over the 1,000 years the ship was sitting in the nebula.
After hearing the plan in the last episodes, it occurs to me that Calypso likely does not take place in the 33rd Century as everyone assumed but in the 42nd Century. If Discovery is flung 900 years into future next week, it is safe to assume that sometime after that the ship will be abandoned in the nebula. That would mean that the 1,000 years would be from that time, so 1,900 years from the 23rd century.
Some evidence that points to that being possible is the fact that Craft does not appear to know what Starfleet is or the Federation. He does state the people he was fighting are called the “V’draysh”, that sounds like (V-daray-sh) of Federation.
We know from Voyager and Enterprise that the Federation and Starfleet survive to at least the 31st Century. It seems unlikely that a human from the 33rd Century would not know what the Federation or Starfleet is, or would mispronounce the name as Craft did. Tack on another 1,000 years, and it’s possible, especially if the Federation fell sometime between the 32nd and say 36th centries.
The ship could also be even further in the future, as it’s made clear by The Son of None, Ask Tylor, that Bernahnm could land in anytime. It could be the 55th Century or 100th Century.
But my feeling is they are going to land Discovery is a time where the Federation and Starfleet are still around.
So about a year ago, I found this sweet website called the Voyager Virtual Season Project (at "vv8.jetc.org"), and I love it. If you couldn't guess from the name, it's a virtual season project for Star Trek: Voyager, and added a Season 8 and a Season 9 to the Voyager timeline. I'm still in mid-Season 8.
Apparently, the project begun in like 2001, and ended in about 2003. Going back in the Net Archive, I've been able to read through the old forums, and I even installed their "Sernaix War" mod to Bridge Commander.
I personally like the VVS8 project's story better than the Pocket Books continuation, and I'd like to hear your thoughts.
This, to me, was a great episode.
Also made me cry a bit.
Any other opinions on this episode?
Apologies if this has been discussed already.
How does everyone feel about the existence of Time Crystals in Discovery? Personally I can’t stand this aspect of the new series. Why call them ‘Time’ crystals? It makes them sound like something that should belong in a kids game show. For those of us from the UK, it’s all a bit too much of a ‘Ronseal’ approach to naming something. I’d have preferred it if they’d attempted to give it a more scientific name. I also hate all that naff Klingon mysticism surrounding it and the over the top new age proclamations about time that they make. Spare me! Plus it’s a massive cop out to have an element that magically warps time as it eliminates the need to come up with a scientific explanation for time travel. I don’t like this fantasy element to Star Trek, never mind that Pike had to go to some kind of Lord of the Rings outpost to get one. Let’s not even start on the fact that it seems illogical that having held a time crystal somehow fixes his future and prevents any deviation, even though he knows what to avoid thanks to the vision he had.
Hey guys. So I need a place with people who I know are reputable to post my poetry. I want some feedback on it. It's not about Star Trek, so it depends on if you guys are ok with it or not. It's ok if it's not. Just let me know and I'll post one of them here.
The goal of poetry is to make you feel something, so hopefully you guys can rate my writings.
If you could pick from all the Starfleet personnel we’ve seen (from films and series), who would be your go-to bridge crew/senior staff?
1st Officer: Data
Science Officer: Stamets
Chief Engineer: O’Brien
Tactical Officer: Kira Nerys
Helmsperson: Geordi (I know he could do more but I gotta have Mr. Miles Edward)
Chief Medical Officer: Dr. Crusher

In this episode written by Gene Coon, Kirk, Spock and McCoy transport to Janus 6 to investigate the deaths of Miners by a creature called Horta the Borer.
Back when I was ten or eleven, I was big into the
Edgar Rice Burroughs book series Tarzan of the Apes.
In the books, Tarzan spoke the language of the Apes.
The Elephants were called Tantor.
The Lion was Numa.
The Snakes were called Hista.
And the wild Pigs were called Horta the Boar.
I would imagine that Mr. Coon was probably a fan of
Burroughs, being that he was also a Science Fiction writer.
I tend to believe that “Horta the Borer” had to in some way be influenced by “Horta the Boar”.
Anyone else ever made this connection?

Pretty cool! The article compares it to the Eye of Sauron but doesn’t mention Trek.
I first saw John Colicos on stage in King Lear and thought, I'd follow that man into any battle?🗡
Do you think O'Brien was right to disobey bashir's orders in DS9 Hippocratic oath, and do you think Bashir was right not to have him disciplined for it?
Bashir made an executive decision, which was his decision to make, and O'Brien's duty to follow it. Sometimes Starfleet officers will disobey illegal or immoral orders, but that wasn't the case here, Bashir made a decision that O'Brien simply didn't like. O'Brien was undisciplined, and Bashir should have had him reprimanded for disobeying orders.
(I like both Bashir and o'brien, by the way, they're two of my favorite characters.)

I just finished Voyager and I wonder what others’ thoughts are on the finale.
I have to say I was pretty disappointed by the fact that we don’t see any of the characters returning to Earth, greeting their families, being received and honored by Starfleet, etc. This was the show’s heart - it’s best moments always revolved around reconnecting to the people they missed so badly on Earth. It’s the most fundamentally “human” part to all of it too - to need to be back where you belong. The resolution of that was completely left out!
I also thought it was a mistake to cram it all into one two-parter. I wished the final season could have all led up to the arrival home. This is obviously the show’s biggest fault overall - lack of consistent, longterm storytelling.
I thought the action and thriller aspects of it were fun, but I think Star Trek is always failing to live up it’s to name when those elements take precedent over ideas and themes. I’m philosophy first, sci fi second fan I guess.

Can someone explain the significance of the crewman who comes into sick bay with injuries from a plasma torch?

We've all heard of Capt. Kirk's improvised game that he used to distract his captors in "A Piece of the Action", but he never quite gave us clear advice on how to play it ourselves. Sure, there was something about a "half-fizzbin" and a "sralk", but none of the advice was really coherent.
Well, thanks to these rules that are based off of the original "instructions", you'll soon be playing "Fizzbin" like there's no tomorrow!
- The game can be played with as little as 2 players, but it's not recommended.
- The game starts when the dealer deals six cards to everyone with the second cards being set apart from the rest, and facing up.
- The dealer must deal a seventh card to the player on his right (although in a 2-player game, the player who is not the dealer counts as the player on the dealer's right).
- The game is played in clockwise circles, with the dealer starting each circle, and the player on the dealer's right ending each circle. (Again, the player who is not the dealer counts as the player on the dealer's right in a 2-player game.)
- When it's their turn, each player must do one of two things: either they discard a card into the discard pile (started by the dealer), and then get another card from the pile of cards that were not dealt initially, or if they have an ace of any suit in their current hand (a "kronk"), they can discard that, pick any player, and get one of the cards in that player's hand that is a jack, king, or deuce of any suit, or that is a jack, queen, or four of any suit, depending on whether it's day or night (JK2 for day, JQ4 for night). The chosen player is then compensated with another card from the draw pile. However, if the chosen player does not have a legal card (for example, if he/she has a seven of hearts), then the chosen player keeps his card, and the user of the "kronk" gets another card from the draw pile.
- At the end of each circle, the dealer asks if anyone has a winning hand before the dealer would make his/her move. If anyone pipes up, then the game is ended. Legal winning hands are shown below under the "Winning Hands" section.
- If nobody has a winning hand, then the circles continue until someone has a winning hand at the end of a circle.
- Players are permitted to "steal" a card involved in another player's winning hand with a "kronk", before the circle has ended.
- However, the last card that a player gets cannot be stolen with a "kronk", and cannot be discarded by it's owner, until he/she gets a new card.
- If multiple players end with the same winning hands at the end of a circle, then whoever's name is alphabetically first outranks the other (for example, if Alice and Bob win at the end of a circle with "fizzbins", Alice would be in "first place", whereas Bob would be in "second place").
- All players who don't have winning hands or "half-fizzbins" have their "places" determined by the total value of their cards at the end of each game, with an ace being equivalent to one point.
- Three jacks in a hand results in a "sralk", and disqualifies the unlucky player.
- If one draws a king, he/she would discard one of his/her cards, and draw another, unless it's dark outside, it which case, the player would get his/her discarded card back, and discard the king.
- The second cards are not turned up on Tuesdays.
- The odds of getting a "royal fizzbin" are so astronomical, even Spock couldn't be bothered to calculate them.
- "Fizzbin": A "fizzbin" consists of a king and deuce of two random suits or of the same suit when it's daytime, but of a queen and four of two random suits or of the same suit when it's nighttime. It is overcome by a "royal fizzbin". The four (or five, for the player on the right of the dealer) other cards are irrelevant to this hand, and can be any other cards that the player has.
- "Royal Fizzbin": A "royal fizzbin" consists of cards of two random suits that must stay consistent with each pair. There must be two kings, two deuces, and two jacks in daytime, and two queens, two fours, and two jacks in nighttime. The player to the right of the dealer must also have any random card of the two random suits that he/she chooses in his/her hand.
- "Half-Fizzbin": Although not technically a "winning hand" in that it doesn't end the game at the end of a circle, a "half-fizzbin" earns it's winner a place above "added-point hands", and below full "fizzbins".
I hope you have fun experimenting with this game, and let me know if you encounter any problems with it, or if you simply have a suggestion.
Although Chinese writer Lin Yutang claimed “Face cannot be translated or defined”, compare these definitions:
• Face is an image of self, delineated in terms of approved social attributes.
• Face is the respectability and/or deference which a person can claim for himself or herself from others.
Face is something that is emotionally invested, and that can be lost, maintained, or enhanced, and must be constantly attended to in interaction.
• Face is a sense of worth that comes from knowing one’s status and reflecting concern with the congruence between one’s performance or appearance and one’s real worth.
• “Face” means “sociodynamic valuation”, a lexical hyponym of words meaning “prestige; dignity; honor; respect; status”.
“The term “face” keeps cropping up in our conversation, and it seems such a simple expression that I doubt whether many people give it much thought. Recently, however, we have heard this word on the lips of foreigners too, who seem to be studying it. They find it extremely hard to understand, but believe that “face” is the key to the Chinese spirit and that grasping it will be like grabbing a queue twenty-four years ago [when wearing a queue was compulsory] – everything else will follow.”
“Interesting as the Chinese physiological face is, the psychological face makes a still more fascinating study. It is not a face that can be washed or shaved, but a face that can be “granted” and “lost” and “fought for” and “presented as a gift”. Here we arrive at the most curious point of Chinese social psychology. Abstract and intangible, it is yet the most delicate standard by which Chinese social intercourse is regulated.”

Anyone else really struggle with dr Pulaski? I rewatching TNG and just getting into season 2. I find her attitude towards Data quite out of keeping with what the rest of Starfleet stands for. I’m just her first two episodes she neglects to acknowledge the pronunciation of his name, asked questions about his abilities as if he isn’t present, referring to him as ‘it’ and called him names.
How intentional do we feel this was on the writer’s part and for what reason?
PICARD: Mister La Forge, I understand that before the Jenolen crashed, it had conducted an extensive survey of the Dyson sphere. Have we been able to access any of those records?
LAFORGE: We did try to download their memory core, but it was pretty heavily damaged in the crash. We actually haven't been able to get much out of it.
PICARD: Perhaps Captain Scott could be of use in accessing that material.
LAFORGE: It's *possible.* He does know those systems better than any of us. I'll have Lieutenant Bartel beam down with him.
PICARD: Mister La Forge, I would like you to accompany Captain Scott.
LAFORGE: Me, sir?

”Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn had every reason to question the structure of existence when he was imprisoned in a Soviet labour camp, in the middle of the terrible twentieth century.
He had served as a soldier on the ill-prepared Russian front lines in the face of a Nazi invasion. He had been arrested, beaten and thrown into prison by his own people. Then he was struck by CANCER. He could have become resentful and bitter. His life had been rendered miserable by both Stalin and Hitler, two of the worst tyrants in history.
He lived in brutal conditions. Vast stretches of his precious time were stolen from him and squandered. He witnessed the pointless and degrading suffering and death of his friends and acquaintances.
Then he contracted an extremely serious disease. Solzhenitsyn had cause to curse God. Job himself barely had it as hard. But the great writer, the profound, spirited defender of truth, did not allow his mind to turn towards vengeance and destruction. He opened his eyes, instead.
During his many trials, Solzhenitsyn encountered people who comported themselves nobly, under horrific circumstances. He contemplated their behaviour deeply. Then he asked himself the most difficult of questions:
‘Had he personally contributed to the Catastrophe of His Life?’
‘If so, How?’
He remembered his unquestioning support of the Communist Party in his early years. He reconsidered his whole life. He had plenty of time in the camps. How had he missed the mark, in the past? How many times had he acted against his own conscience, engaging in actions that he knew to be wrong? How many times had he betrayed himself, and lied? Was there any way that the sins of his past could be rectified, atoned for, in the muddy hell of a Soviet gulag?
Solzhenitsyn pored over the details of his life, with a fine-toothed comb. He asked himself a second question, and a third.
‘Can I stop making such mistakes, now?’
‘Can I repair the damage done by my past failures, now?’
He learned TO WATCH and TO LISTEN. He found people he admired; who were HONEST, despite everything. He took himself apart, piece by piece, let what was unnecessary and harmful die, and resurrected himself.
Then he wrote The Gulag Archipelago, a history of the Soviet prison camp system.
It’s a forceful, terrible book, written with the overwhelming moral force of unvarnished Truth. Its sheer outrage screamed unbearably across hundreds of pages. Banned (and for good reason) in the USSR, it was smuggled to the West in the 1970s, and burst upon The World.
Solzhenitsyn’s writing utterly and finally demolished the intellectual credibility of communism, as ideology or society. He took an axe to the trunk of the tree whose bitter fruits had nourished him so poorly—and whose planting he had witnessed and supported.
One man’s decision to change his life, instead of cursing fate, shook the whole pathological system of communist tyranny to its core. It crumbled entirely, not so many years later, and Solzhenitsyn’s courage was not the least of the reasons why. He was not the only such person to perform such a miracle.
Václav Havel, the persecuted writer who later, impossibly, became the president of Czechoslovakia, then of the new Czech Republic, comes to mind, as does Mahatma Gandhi.”

I know in TOS that the Klingon Empire and Federation are locking horns but I have seen no reference to the war in DIS.

When Discovery started, there were concerns about the level of tech on show when compared to TOS. Does anyone else feel that the Spore Drive will end up classified within Section 31?
Pike mentions the problems with holographic comes on the Enterprise so says to communicate via screens. Do you think this is to explain a lack of holographic comms in TOS?

To further that goal, I would like to put him in charge of the planetary mineral surveys.
It's a big job with a lot of responsibility.
The Game isn't big enough unless it scares you a little.
[ YES. ]
To do the job, Wesley's going to need a team.
It takes command presence to lead.
Do you think he's ready for that?
Leadership grows from self-confidence, which is also part of a Starfleet officer's education.
All of this is true, but there is an old horse trainer's adage about putting too much weight on a young back.
We don't want him to break under pressure.
We seem to be shifting the focus here.
Are we talking about a young officer on the fast track to the Academy, or are we talking about a young man that we are guiding through adolescence and into adulthood?
You can't guide someone into adulthood.
[ No, you REALLY can't... ]
The experiences are unique to each person. Whether Wes succeeds OR FAILS he will learn from the experience.
I agree. I'm just questioning the speed at which we're moving.
[ Old Women always do. ]
You think we're pushing him too hard?
I think that's a valid concern.
Tempering is taken to extremes.

As some you may have noticed, I put tabs in some of the pages to help (in my opinion) reduce the page size and over all help with scrolling. There are some who don't like them - but I was wondering what the overall consensus was.
This is what I'm talking about (memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Galaxy_class#Technical_data) all you do is click on the named tab and go to that portion of the information. If the link doesn't work, just scroll down the technical data section.
I think it would work great on the background information sections - apocrypha, etc - as well as the relationship sections on the some of the main characters.
What do we think of adding an "In-Development" section to the series drop-down menu on the main toolbar?
If that language is confusing, check out the image I attached.
Seems like a fair amount of people would come to MemAlph looking for info on the Picard series, the Section-31 series, the Lower Decks animated series, etc.
This one I call Kilt Engineer Scotty.
Heyo. Despite my love for this episode, I want to take the gloves off and pick it apart a bit. My thoughts aren't very organized about it, so here's a stream of questions/ideas.
I think the main weak point is the inconsistencies with the technological capacities of the society on Kataan. The technology they developed to send out this probe is highly sophisticated - it's a portable holodeck that implants itself in someone's mind. It's not merely a movie or even a pre-programmed virtual reality - Picard has seemingly complete free will and the "characters" around him respond organically to whatever he does. Because of this, we can assume that we aren't seeing a note-for-note reenactment of Kamin's memories, and all of Picard's actions (even the children he has with his wife on the planet) don't necesarily correspond to the real Kamin's life.
The technology is also impervious to attempts to disable it, unless the disablers want to kill whomever it has reached. This seems to be a pretty complex component.
Is it reasonable to criticize that a society capable of developing this ought to have been able to develop interstellar flight? What can we chalk this up to?
Another question, which was also raised on the Explaining Errors in Star Trek Wiki and I thought it worth reposting here - why do we think they picked Picard of all the people on the Enterprise? Also - why did they pick Kamin as the person whose memories should be shared? From what we know of Kamin pre-Picard, he seems to be a thoroughly normal person.
Returning to the theme of Picard's free will while inside the experience, the planet was taking a bit of gamble by sending the flute inside the probe. It's entirely possible that whomever they found to inhabit Kamin could have abandonded the flute all together they day after they arrived. For that matter, it's possible that the person could have - within the timeframe of a lifetime - developed and implemented technology to save the society. I wonder if something was built into the design of the probe to circumvent this?
Okay I think that's all I got in me.
Yours in nerdom,
Added a belt a hypospray and fixed his pants.
Desert island episodes as in the ones you would watch over and over again. Limit is 8 and on all series!
Thought he looked to mischievous, so I just gave him a happy and slightly worried smile. (He is always worried the crew might get hurt.) This is a Tribute to DeForest Kelley. Also, for all the McCoy lovin' Trekkies out there!
This is my newest Dr. McCoy drawing. It is him from season 3 on the TOS star trek series.
In the end of Tin Man when the star went supernova, it was observed immediately from the ship some 3.8 billion kilometers away.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't that observation be delayed by something like 3 hours?
