They're polar opposites. The first is sci-fi at its best recipe, the second is sci-fi at its worst recipe.

Did...did you even watch the Star Trek movies?

Let's break it down:

Movies

The original cast
ST: TMP - crap. Boring crap at that.
ST: WoK- Awesome. The greatest of the original cast movies.
ST: SS - meh. Fans are pissed off that Spock died, as Nimoy wanted, so now we have to bring him back with mystical mumbo jumbo.
ST: WHALES! - Absolute crap.
ST: FF - Let's try to be shittier than the movie about whales!
ST: UC - Very good but not as great as WoK.

The Next Generation
ST: G - Shatner needs to get paid and we gotta shoehorn a handover somehow.
ST: FC - The best of all the TNG movies.
ST: I - Shouldn't have this been an episode? Holy fuck this movie is terrible. Magic space dust makes us all immortal! Let's pilot the Enterprise with a Thrustmaster joystick! PEW PEW PEW!
ST: N - Wait..what...how did this fanfic make it in to a script? Also, we've spent literal decades world building that the Romulans were the greatest intelligence gathering organization in the galaxy but...YOLO SWAG! Fuck 'em, coup time!

I say all of that as someone who loves Star Trek but lets not put it on some giant fucking nerd pedestal and mendaciously bloviate about how great the past movies were. Most of them were not and contained enough plot holes to float the entirety of the US Navy through. Moreover, the Kelvin timeline did something that the last 20 years of Star Trek hadn't been able to do...it put asses in seats and gave Star Trek new life. It brought in new fans and new interest.

Star Trek is a product, owned by Paramount, made to do one thing...make money. It is not some sacred cultural artifact to be treasured forever by people who have internalized a work of fiction to make up for the void in their life. Those who have are the ones whining and throwing the tantrums over it. They are tantrums. Childish, pathetic tantrums.

As Shatner himself said..."GET A LIFE!"

Snagged it!

Cue the 120+ response thread of pointless, absolutely redundant bitching and moaning.

Star Trek can easily find a way forward by ignoring the 50-70 year olds who are constantly bitching about everything. Chart a new way forward and gain new fans. Keep the bones around but flesh them differently. Worked to great effect for the BSG reboot.

With rare exception, crunch is a sign of bad management. It shows a failure to properly forecast man hours.

I, too, am fine with the delay to bring a better product to market. I was a bit disappointed at first when I read that but got over it pretty quickly.

Meanwhile on Linux...

That is not to say that Linux has not had its own issues, it has. However, it is patched much faster.

Of course it also helps tremendously that user space is separated from kernel space.

Funny you should say that since there was a console exclusive Dungeon Master spin-off for the Turbografx-16 that had anime cutscenes. I bought that back in the day and it's actually quite good.

I think it was Class of Heroes, or maybe Sword City, that allowed you to switch the portraits in the game from anime to "standard PC style". To be honest, Wizardry should have done it here as well.

Yep, butchered by Software Heaven and definitely not an FTL (the OG devs) product. More weeb shit. The title was Dungeon Master: Theron's Quest because FTL would not allow them to use the DM name as a direct drop in. I remember an interview with Wayne Holder and Doug Bell way, way back in the day and they were decidedly not happy with what Software Heaven did.

Burrito is pretty fucking cranky today, agreed. Long streak of insomnia and lots of pain.

I'm not turned off on it...it's objectively bad and a blatant pandering to a specific market of fucking incel weebs.

I'm sure D.W. Bradley doesn't give a shit because he got his money out of it but I agree, how the mighty have fallen. It's like if Dungeon Master or Bard's Tale suddenly were released with chibi shit and every character says "uWu" every other sentence.

If only the people blathering about "anti-competitive practices" were as passionate and ardent about digital privacy and personal digital security both commented and acted as ferociously as the complain.

As long as the DRM (or whatever form of copyright protection is in place) doesn't get in the way of playing the game, people don't care. But they care when they are forced to buy on an objectively inferior platform.

My post had nothing to do with DRM. DRM is only bothersome for idiots.

I watched "Joker" over the weekend for the first time and I enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. I actually found it to be quite enjoyable.

The Lighthouse is in my queue to watch as I really like slow burn horror movies.

I'm hoping those APUs make their way to the desktop line to replace the current 3000G.

My Carizzo based HTPCs are long in the tooth and I would like something more powerful and cooler running.
