      I often fantasize about putting on a trenchcoat, shades, something like an AA12, a 30 round drum, and transporting aboard TNG's Enterprise-D. I legitimately think I can air out the entire bridge.

          Worf is obviously the first to go. Data wasn't bulletproof in the show, and is getting it second. What is Pricard gonna do about it then? Tell me I'm a clearly abused individual and no one on this bridge is here to harm me, that's its a peaceful vessel striking for scientific understanding? KA-BLAM! The rest go easy. I lay the remaining extra rounds into Ro until they transport me off the ship.

              The android also had superhuman speed but the show hardly used it because lolbudget. He doesn’t feel things like shock or panic in an emergency either. Data was one of the ‘nice ones’ so he would probably incapacitate Anon unless Picard explicitly ordered murder. Worf would 100% beat Anon into goo and no amount of begging from Picard or Riker could stop him.

        The thing that annoys me about it is that humanity has had civilization for thousands of years and still do the same bullshit, it makes zero sense for us to just stop.
        Another feather in babylon 5's cap is that they not only portray the realistic nature of humanity, but they actually use it for them to problem solve.

      The alternative is moronic, and I hope you understand that. If you had a race of floating squid people that lacked any human like features and spoke by clicking....well it would be alien, but it would be too foreign of a character to understand when it's emoting, happy or sad or anything.
      You need character to emote. It's always a little corny when it's literally humans with like a blue paint mark on their face, but if they appear for one episode it doesn't really detract from the story.

    I used to hate that between current year and the future there were no signs of any popular culture, music or movies that popped up in between those two periods in time.

    >200 years in the future let's listen to this "classic" Beastie Boys track.

    But now that seems like an increasingly likely outcome.

        The conventions of war are such that long range armament has been prohibited for use against enemy navies (pirates excepted). For all manners of skirmishes and battles, boarding is the done thing, and fighting is conducted via melee implements lest the ship's interior gets damaged or too little time is left to the boarded contingent to surrender honourably.

        Have AI calculate the shot millions of miles away and then have their AI calculate an evasive maneuver whereas the other AI is then predicting this maneuver and etc. So basically all you see is humans inputting different data and changing the ship course accordingly while occasionally a laser flies by semi close.

        Highly developed countermeasure systems have rendered guided weapons totally ineffective and automatic detection & manoeuvring systems mean that unguided weapons fired from too great a distance are avoided by the target.

        Bingo, you've now forced spacecraft to engage each other at close range with direct weapons. Along with all the other implications that entails:
        >heavy armour
        >weapons need to be amassed in batteries to be effective
        >boarding actions
        etc etc, basically age of sail but in 3D.
        Anyone who says
        >nooo space combat MUST be le boring!
        Is either unimaginative or just doesn't understand the problems, why they arise, and how they can quite easily be counteracted by a hypothetical technological development.

        Like people say battleships are obsolete, and with our current technology they certainly are and have been for a very long time. But add in the development of some ultrastrong new alloy that is impervious to the kind of weapons one can mount on an aircraft or smaller missile and battleships are right back in the fray.

    Last but not least is space fights being fought like 1700 ship battles (although a space pirate sci-fi that essentially mimicked 1700 naval war ware/piracy would be cool, ship cannons and all) but back to the point think of all sci-fi you’ve seen where enemies always show up on the lateral field of the pov. Never “up” or “below” the ship, and the ships are usually designed to fight head on and are usually designed aerodynamically, even the ships that never enter an atmosphere

      Cloud City is actually one of the better "classic" scifi concepts featured in Star Wars. Still perhaps the best big budget representation of a city/station on a gas giant or Venus-like planet.

      It's unrealistically massive, but otherwise plausible. Star Wars has magic handwave antigrav shit, but you could make up some logic about giant fusion powered ducted fans to keep it afloat, and/or make it like 90% hollow and full of helium or whatever.

              Communism in a nutshell

              • 3 weeks ago
                Anonymous

                Communism will never work with resource scarcity. It defies human nature so spectacularly that it literally cannot work without a highly authoritarian centralized bureaucratic state directing production goals. Without a command economy people run out of essential goods because humans don't like working shitty menial labour jobs simply out of the goodness of their hearts.

                Leftoids will never understand basic economics or human psychology unfortunately.

                if you're coming into another solar system in your spaceships, grabbing the ice from asteroids or small moons is a better idea because you won't have to fight the gravity of the big planet that has the liquid water. getting shit from the earth into orbit is insanely expensive energy wise. just melting the ice is a lot cheaper

                That assumes you know what's powering their ships or what their social, political and cultural motivations are.

                no matter how their propulsion or energy generation works, grabbing asteroids and melting them is still cheaper than escaping the gravity well of an earth-like planet with tons of water on board.
                if they however only want the water of a living planet because it tastes better or some shit, then its fair game I guess

                Cheaper may be irrelevant in the context of their propulsion systems. If they can travel between stars, a gravity well of a planet is not an issue.

                I wouldnt count on that. they will be capable of landing, ofcourse, but would they bother to?
                an interstellar ship would likely be similar to a huge oil tanker, designed to safely and quickly travel great distances, but that tanker cant do shit in shallow water or dock at any 2bit harbor.
                if the point of their interstellar expedition is to collect resources, then they would absolutely go for the safe and easy way of grabbing stuff in space and processing it, and probably not bother with planets at all, at least until all the easily accessible asteroids and moons have been mined empty
