So I think that’s officially that for the pilot. I have a few jokes that never quite made it out of the notes file and onto the page, but I think trying to shoe-horn them in to an extended directionless denouement wouldn’t have worked out all that well, so let’s just have Geordi put a […]
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 […]
Wesley Crusher, you dumb little genius. There are so many things that bother me about the Universal Translator, and I think I’ve talked about some of this before (probably specifically in the context of Darmok, but it applies more generally), so I won’t go on at length about it again and will just suffice to […]
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.
I gotta be honest, Dax is kind of a snore. Or at least it feels that way on a rewatch; I suppose it’s not fair to it in retrospect to see it after having already had the Jadzia/Dax character developed further and Dax and Sisko’s relationship built out some, because some of this stuff may […]
