If Star Trek Discovery is dying, perhaps this is why. A lot of us ignored it because of their Liberal Lunacy and hatred of our Nation. submitted by SimpleNotions to tv

It is not dying, it was stillborn.

And it was not because of politics, not really. The politics influence the true problem.

It is just bad.

Bad acting, bad writing, bad pacing, and a bad setting.

They are doing the JJ Abrams thing, and it sucks. Star Trek is supposed to be deep, complex, and thought provoking at its best. What is more, it is meant to demonstrate the issues with a level of neutrality and understanding that allows people to actually think about the issue being tackled.

Star Trek: The Next Generation did that very well on many occasions. Even the Orville has managed it. STD is just awful and nobody wants it.

The writers of the show are course, harsh, without nuance... When they touch a subject it is overt, poorly presented, and preachy. They cannot show an issue, they have to pontificate on it.

And that is the heart of it, shit writers are on the show - they are people of the right political views and that is not a good qualifier for a writer. They infect the industry because of their political views rather than the merits of their accomplishments. Look to every video game they do, every book, every movie, every comic... All they ever do is tell you how it is because there is only one way, their way.

God, it is like they are a parody, but with tattoos like that I think they're serious.

That is the beauty of a well crafted troll, it is impossible to see it as anything but possibly a troll.

They are Schrodinger's Posts. Actively being first a serious and then troll post one instant to the next.

Do you think Africans in America with provable Jewish ancestry should be given the Right of Return to Israel? submitted by OhRutherfordBehave to AskVoat

chronicdisco 3 points -2 points (+1|-3) ago

Well, they also have to practice Judaism. And speak Hebrew.

But they would never be accepted, because they would not be Jews. Jews are only Jews by right of their mother's bloodline.

The blacks in America are descent from Jewish men and their slaves, no mothers were Jewish and therefore none of the children are Jewish.

You show a great deal of ignorance towards Star Trek by thinking the show demonstrates communism.

Star Trek is a post-scarcity world.

Nothing is limited anymore, if you want food you need only press a button and food is created using a energy-matter conversion technology called Replicators. Any food, no matter how complicated or rare, can be scanned, cataloged, and then recalled for creation via these computerized devices. Food is limited only by electrical power availability.

The power generators create power so immense they are able to bend space itself around an object and move at multiples of C. This is based on the destruction of matter and conversion of it to energy.

Power is unlimited provided you have the generator in good shape - food and most materials are unlimited as long as you have power. They in essence have reached a technological state where you need not put in effort to survive, you simply can put in effort if you wish to be a person of note or value.

Picard put it relatively well in a Next Generation film, First Contact, where he described the new meaning of life for humanity. They are pursuing betterment, but not wealth. This is because wealth is no longer vital for power on a social level, having more money no longer meant you were in a significantly better position in society.

So, no, not communism. Hippy-dippy, lovey-dovey peacenik nonsense, but not communism.

Why the fuck? Ah well, it does not effect me beyond the confusion it causes.
