Riker made me do it. Back to the show on Friday, remedy I promise.
Gosh, it’s nice to be back. Last week, I tell you what. And I have to say, I was sort of delighted when we sat down and watched A Man Alone that they launched right into the marital strife thing with Miles and Keiko as a b-plot. I had remembered dimly that they had arguments […]
I’m really stretching the form here: Miles flouncing off panel! It’s a big day for sequential art. I loved Odo’s little speech about coupling, because it sounded like the kind of point-missing defense of being alone that some kid would make. How convenient! And yes, that’s part of Odo’s character, that he’s a smart and […]
This was an easy strip to write (it’s been half-written in my head since they first stormed out, really), but boy are these a lot of new screenshots! The trickiest part was actually figuring out which episodes to grab them from; Keiko here’s from the DS9 first season finale, and Miles is from the DS9 […]
I am going to admit that it’s more logistical difficulty than actual disinterest that prevents me from putting everyone in character-appropriate costume. I just don’t have the patience to photoshop that many heads onto that many uniforms at this point, it’s enough work to just mask the actual screenshots. I like to think that Picard’s […]
This really does seem like it could be a problem for Miles. Keiko’s job on the show was mostly to be sort of unhappy on the station when she wasn’t off on a botany expedition or being sent away by Miles because everything was dangerous. I was happy with my Nog joke but then I […]
Oh my god, I think they’re actually role-playing again. We’re gonna pay a quick visit to Babel, because I can’t really pass on the chance to make characters talk funny. And I get the feeling the DS9 writers couldn’t either, is how this happened. But it ends up being an episode with like two minutes […]
Somebody’s in trouble. I’m betting there’ll be more details on Friday, based on some rumors I heard from the guy who writes this thing, though I also hear you’re welcome to speculate. Also I sort of got to writing more on Monday about what I mentioned in that strip’s commentary, about what was sort of […]
Poor ol’ Tosk. In the actual episode, he gets to live, of course, but Geordi’s not having any of that; I guess he’s channeling his Straczynski instead of his Roddenberry at the moment. Because that feels like the difference between Star Trek and Babylon 5, a lot of the time: this episode would have ended […]
Standard note: Picard meets Vash late in season three, which hasn’t happened yet in Larp Trek canon so it hasn’t happened. Which makes this all really, really weird, and that’s before the other surprise guest star even shows up.
