Any chance of TMP getting a new cut?
I keep hearing rumors that it's going to happen, but it never seems to.
This old DVD is still the best edit.
What amazes me is how much of TMP(or, to be more accurate, Phase 2) is still in the DNA of TNG. Watching the first two seasons, it's extremely obvious. Frakes was obviously cast because he had a passing resemblance to the pedo from TMP. Troi and Illia were almost carbon copies of each other(the episode 'The Child' is an Illia ep for Phase 2, hastily rewritten for Troi). Data and his characterization, again, lifted from Xon from Phase 2. Phase 2(and by extension, Roddenbery) had a clear influence on TNG.

TNG only really became it's own entity after Roddenbery got so sick he couldn't assert his influence on set anymore.

I'd always heard that Questor became Data, but yeah I can totally see Xon as well.

Season 1 was about Brexit and Blormph, Season 2 is going to be about ChinkFlu and George Floyd.
It will be about racist Starfleet security officers beating a Romulan to death, won't it?

Watching Friday's Child. Pretty shit episode, but the bit where McCoy tells the pregnant lady that he can touch her in whatever way his professional judgment dictates and then bitchslaps her is memorable.
Ofc she falls in love with him.

We lost Transporter Chief Kyle.
He died late last year, but nobody bothered to report on it until now.

Watched The Deadly Years.

It was all over the place, but I was really impressed by the storyline regarding Kirk developing dementia and being in total denial of it. The old man acting was a bit cheesy, but the script was very good.

Picard('s zombie robot clone) will also be constantly kneeling and washing their feet.

I heard Quentin Tarantino was supposed to be the next Trek movie. I didn't know he's going to make the next season of Picard instead :lol:

I guarantee you the teaser will be of a dramatically kneeling man, head down, then he dramatically looks up: Picard!
