    ah yes, my favourite combat outfit of all time:


    very practical that the top serves as pointy weapon.

    The top could be Jiffy pop.

    there was show called "beggars and choosers" in the 90s. a satirical look at an unscrupulous TV network in LA. one of their hit shows was a racy late-night feature called "unregistered nurses". it always comes to mind when i am working on one of my health-care applications in which "registered nurse" is a staff category. that poster also triggered the thought.

    I've bought the whole Star Trek - The Next Generation series in DVD from eBay to watch with the kids.
    I was in my mid teens at the time and found it quite good

    The boys got all excited with the really cool boxes but the first episode was so dull that at one point I thought they were going to give up... Fortunately episode 2 was nice and may have been enough to save the day.

    The first two seasons are pretty rough going. Think of watching them as an investment, which begins to pay off with Season 3.

    Maybe Discovery will be like that? Not holding my breath ...

    Today, a series needs to hit a high from the get-go or it's over.

    Same with bands—no more long term planning. You need hit right way or you're fired.

    Todays episode is the best one so far by a long way, I can't wait for next Thursdays series finale.

    VERY Star Fleet. Rationalized nutrition, no more calories than required for activity level, all pleasure in well-disciplined moderation!

    Magnificent finale!

    but what was the turntable?

    Episodes 9 and 10 of Picard were, in a word, awesome!

    Looking forward to season 2, though I understand filming will be delayed due to the pandemic.

    It was a Dual of some sort.

    Debbie Downer here, I thought the finale was silly. Knowing that the series has already been renewed for another season sort of takes the suspense out of certain things, and leaves one only to wonder how they'll contrive it.

    That was brilliant—they resisted the temptation to spoil it with a digital fight to the death.

    I wish they'd done the upgrade though!

    7o9 bats for the opposition?

    The fact that the moment I think you're talking about occurred with 15 minutes still to go was also a dead giveaway, and the solution had been not-so-subtly hinted at in the previous episode. The whole thing was basically a parade of typical Trek plot points delivered in the most predictable manner possible.

    Didn't wonder about that either. And I do hate these fleets of starships that deploy wingtip to wingtip in 'tactical formation.' BTW, tell me again why starships have wings?

    On the other hand, I thought the attempts at philosophizing about the meaning of life and stuff were actually interesting, cool to find in TV entertainment.

    7o9 bats for 'let's solidify a cult following in a certain market segment,' he said with a level of snark....

    Starfleet ones don't.

    Which makes their occasional sojourn into the atmosphere really irritating.

    I would have been funnier to make a 'Borg' version of the Sondek—still upgrading it in the 22nd C.
