Star Trekkin' Across the Universe: Discussing The Porgs


#441

Well well well…

Don’t all thank me at once.


#442

For what?


#443

Words seem inadequate.

How would you like to be thanked?


#444

Puppies?


#445

#446

I will give you cuddles now little Tribble.


#447

There’s a first. I’ve never been called a little Tribble before.


#448

Well, when was the last time you were on a Starfleet command ship?


#449

I can be anywhere you want me to be.


#450

Of course you can, little tribble.


#451

:thinking: Nope… I can’t respond with that.


:thinking:
Definitely can’t say that out loud either. :blush:

…Tim, you are trouble!


#452

So, do we want to go on to something else? We’ve had suggestions going back a while: Tapestry, Darmok, doing all the pilot episodes?

I was also thinking it might be fun to do a movie. TMP would be rife for discussion.


#453

I would be up for Darmok.

I think we should save the first episodes till be get closer to Discovery debuting.

I feel remiss in not touching on the Tribble episodes… With the exception of the Animated series episode, I had seen them before. They are that rarity in Star Trek - funny episodes that are actually funny. There are a couple of others. The Magnificent Ferengi is great (possibly just because Iggy Pop is in it). But these work really well.

I gave up on Star Trek much earlier than @Lorcan_Nagle I think, but somehow I saw Trials and Tribble-ations. I remember that there was a big fuss made over the way that the DS9 characters were integrated into existing footage, a la Forrest Gump. I am not sure how I saw it. But yes, Worf is brilliant in it.

The two Department of Temporal Investigations Agents were subsequently spun off into their own series of novels, which I have enjoyed. Edit: Basically it is the story of two obsessive compulsive time detectives in the Star Trek universe. What’s not to like?

In answer to the other point, I am happy with any of the suggestions. I am conscious that we went with a crowd pleasing thing…and prompted very little discussion at all. So something a bit more challenging or contentious might be a good idea. I know that Alx suggested Tapestry a while back,


#455

So, you consume food and breed?


#456

I… :confounded:

:laughing: Oh, I don’t know…They’re sort of cute.

I just like the sound of the name tribble when it’s said with an Aussie accent. :blush:


#457

That’s sort of a personal question there Ben, isn’t it? :wink:


#458

Hey, da lady said she was a tribble, what’s a guy to do?

EDIT: Anyone new reading this thread for the last few posts is going to be so very confused.


#459

This is different from anything that happens on Millarworld on any given day, exactly how?


#460

Hmm, true dat.
