Babylon 5 is the best Sci Fi for TV for sure
Thank you. I just wish that Crusade had made it. I really wanted humanity to be saved, but I guess we'll all perish from that Drak plague.
Ok, since we have some Bab5 fans here, can anyone tell me what the hell ever happened with this?http://www.scifi.com/b5rangers/intro/
I can find some marginal summaries of the movie itself, but is there any news ANYWHERE about the series that JMS said he was going to do for the sci fi channel, or whatever?
As for Star Trek, I actually have to say that the last batch of games weren't all that bad. They weren't great, certainly, but definitely not crap.
Star Trek Armada 2 was enjoyable, even though it had many flaws.
Bridge Commander is seriously cool, if too short.
Elite Force and Elite Force 2 are fun to play for a few times. I just finished EF2, and think that overall it's very stylish, even though the story is pretty corny, and the level design goes from awesome to teh suck and back again.
And so on. So all in all, I think Activision hasn't done too badly with regards to the games (Well, not that they actually did anything besides put it in a box), but even so, their lawsuit is just a bunch of pathetic whining.
As for Enterprise, maybe I'll give it another try, and see if I can download a whole season somewhere, then watch it. Not giving it much hope though.
I fully agree with the comments about the captains. Picard was awesome. His strength lay in strategic thinking, innovation and diplomacy. For everything else, he had to rely on his crewmembers. Do you remember a single episode where Picard solves the problem with the warpcore? No.
Then came Voyager, and because it had a female captain, the writers had to make sure that she came across as a strong willed, independant woman for chrissakes, otherwise we'll get the Militant Lesbian Front all over us!
So, Janeway knows more about engineering than the chief engineer, knows more about communications than her communications officer, knows more about strategy than Tuvok, knows more about etc etc.
If it was a game, I'd say she'd been hacked to uberskills.
And Archer.. Well, let's just say that the only episode in which I really liked him was when he got pissed off over his dog nearly dying. I liked that character in him. Other than that, ehhmm yeah. Gung Ho?
