  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    joe, once a person has made the transition to HBO and danish crime drama, legacy TV is very difficult to go back to.

    Bob,

    You think the PTSD flashback scenes are Voq being surgically altered to look human?

    Ash Tyler is Voq.
    His confusing memories are conflating two different experiences.
    His torture before L’Rell converted him and his sexual relationship as Voq with L’Rell.

    Remember, in previous incarnations of Trek, the Klingons were capable of altering themselves to be spies on the Federation.

    ...is what I am assuming. But why is he hot for Michael? Just confused?

    Even a tribble knows that!

    This seems like a good place to post a picture of a tribble.

    Surgically altered to be a human and totally undetectable to a full body scan by the old ships doc, which is what he went through at least twice so far when returning from Klingon ships?

    If it does turn out that he's Voq then it would surely have to be a mind transfer to Clem Fandango's body, and not a surgical thing which would surely leave traces (klingons) which could be detected. Also the DNA signal scrambler he wore onto the Ship of the Dead would probably get confused.

    In a previous episode she said she's take him to her clan but he would have to be prepared to sacrifice everything...so my guess is mind transfer to Clem, creating Ash. The flashbacks are because at the moment Ash's personality is dominant but L'Rell will be biding her time to trigger the resurgence of Voq when opportune.

    Or something.....'cos mind transfers by the Klingons doesn't sound like something they'd normally do, unless they subcontracted it to Dathomir......

    Do we need an Orville thread? I have to say that while not particularly subtle, Majority Rule was an excellent episode.

    Type YES if you agree.

    Can’t choose.
    Never seen it.
    Where is it available in the UK?

    I believe it's on Fox/Sky, which might make it problematic for some.
