  1. PSA: The Canadian Space channel will become "CTV Sci-Fi" as of September 12: https://www.space.ca/ctv-sci-fi-channel-announcement/
  2. I agree that Picard was way too used to his priveledge afforded by his rank, something Q pointed out. He also once asked his lover to leave the Enterprise because he couldn't handle his feelings. He was also self-righteous, which did lead to voilating the Prime Directive a few times. Yet he still had many admirable qulaities. I am so interested in seeing how his old age and retirement from Starfleet has changed him.

    Chernobyl

    You're welcome 😀. I thought of this forum when I saw it! Closed Cities are such a fascinating places. They both do and do not exist.

    Maybe it's not on the US Netflix? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2721744/

    Star Trek: Picard Anticipation

    I join you in the shoe-throwing. Those two had no chemistry whatsoever

    IIRC, one of the Medical/Computer people said something about having to move into shelters if the weather didn't improve. I'm all for a carefully optimistic conclusion, but I agree the ending was disjointed.

    Star Trek: Picard Anticipation

    https://io9.gizmodo.com/put-the-synthale-down-chateau-picard-wine-is-real-and-1836820279 "Picard" is a fairly common French name, so it's not a surprise that there is a Chateau Picard.

    That was a fist in the air moment for me, even if Rosie was involving a child in her actions. The confrontation between Celeste and Stephan was riviting. I like how Stephan realizes heis a shit, and strives to become less of a shit. He's lucky he only got three years for shooting a guy. The end felt rushed to me as well. I wanted to know how the UK in genreal and the Lyons in particular started digging themselves out of the dystopian hole. What happens after a revolution is more important than the revolution itself.

    Not sure what to make of the final episode. Edith being dowloaded or uploaded seemed far-fetched considering how realistic the rest of the show is. And, if current events are any indication, exposing a Head of State's horrible detention centers does not get that person removed from office. That said, I did like how the early 2030's look more hopeful, and that the UK seems to be getting it's sh*t back together. That felt real. I also loved Muriel's speech about how easy it is to blame everyone but ourselves for how the world turned out. So true.
  11. So I take it you won't be watching Star Trek: Picard? Jean-Luc is by far my favoprite Star TrekCharacter, and Patrick Stewart had (ans has agian) the very difficult task of making an impossibly virtous person interesting

    The Expanse in the Media

    Although I still have some trepidation about Amazon picking up this beloved show, It did come at a good point in the canon. After Ilus and all the other worlds are made accesaible, the canon (and the show) increases in scope and will bo doubt feel a different in tone.

    The UK is already a leader when it comes to renewable energy: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jul/25/low-carbon-energy-makes-majority-of-uk-electricity-for-first-time So in the 2020's of this series, the UK either backslides on this or the distrubtion grid is shoddy and incabaple of dealing with all the floods and storms.

    I do too, because it shows something positive admist all the bleakness. The 10,000 pound bribe to go to the head of the line does make me uncomfortable, because this may be something that could happen in nations with socialized medical care with long waiting lists for surgery. Such as my own country of Canada.
