    Sorry, I was unclear there. I had my wording all fucked up.

    There are two parts to the ‘nobody’ thing. The first is the word nobody and then the second is the silence after it. It’s to denote that no one anywhere had ever thought or heard a particular thing. Then another group comes in as part of the meme and asks that particular question. To turn the meme into a sentence it would be:

    “Not a single living soul in creation had ever expressed this idea but suddenly, one day, a group of Star Trek fans asked something fucked up for the very first time.”

    Whether it’s fucked up or interesting or whatever is denoted by the general context or feeling that the question/idea gives. In this case it would be fucked up.

    I was watching some Critical Role recaps and was in the middle of a deeply intense emotional moment. I had to turn away because I was welling up a bit and looked to the second monitor. A single lemmy message. I refresh. It’s this.

    I cannot stop laughing at both the absurdity of the moment and the intense hilarity of that comment.

    Bravo. Bra-fucking-vo.

  • I did! I fucked up my back in the move but things went well. Una, my cat, did fairly well too. She was vocal a lot of the time and meowing sadly in her carrier although the most when we were moving around. She had to be taken out at one point for them to scan the carrier and she just wanted to explore. Had her on a lil leash and she was looking around a ton. The take off and landing she was meowing a lot but in the air she didn’t make a sound. I, on the other hand, was pacing the plane trying not to throw up from back pain.

    Got in the cab immediately after landing and went off to my new place. Got the keys from the hiding spot and let her out. Set up the litter box and food that I ordered and got my sister to drop off the night before. I spent the night curled up around the toilet because it was the most comfortable place and position. Next few weeks were a bit rough on the back and trying to figure out things in the new place but otherwise went well. Got a job (Which is why I’ve not been posting as much) and had my best friend move in. Things are going well. Back is still fucked and the bed I have is way too firm for me so it’s making it worse. That’s the biggest complaint right now. Everything otherwise is actually good which is a first for me.

    Thank you for asking <3

  • The new Treks are all much more modern and contemporary

    As opposed to TNG, DS9 and Voyager using more modern and contemporary filming techniques than TOS? Enterprise going even further?

    The underlying topics are much closer to reality

    I… what? This is clearly from you looking back, not from you experiencing it at the time. EVERY TREK DID THIS. TOS had an episode aggressively about racism and segregation, not to mention the Uhura kiss in a time of extreme racism against anyone black and the civil rights movement. TNG had an episode about deafness being a part of his race but not a disability, a couple of years after Children of a Lesser God was released. They also had multiple episodes about genetic alteration, something that was just rising to prominence in reality with GMOs, engineered drugs and the first time animals had their genes changed. I mean even Barclays holoaddiction was a BLATANT comparison to the rise of video games at the time and worries about becoming addicted to it. The complaint that its “much closer to reality” is completely void.

    It is a completely different category of show

    The exact same complaint was made against TNG and DS9 but now both are under the same category. The category is Star Trek. Not Star Trek that feels a certain way. If it is Star Trek then it, by default, is in the same category.

    I’ll agree on the bit that different Treks feel different but I outright reject the notion that due to a different feel it doesn’t get to be classed as Star Trek. Once again. Star Trek gets to have diversity in the numbers through characters, races and species. Why are the shows not allowed the same?
