I forget that they are two episodes every watchthrough.

During the previous blackout protest (Vaxxhappened) my sub was a big pusher for going dark, and the biggest hurdle in convincing other mods to join the cause was… fear they would be removed.

It was then that I had my “If there was hope, it must lie in the proles” realization that nothing would change. I had assumed most mods cared more about their communities than the platform they were hosted on, but aside from a scant few that was a mistake.

Me too. I had really hoped more mods would move their communities to a Lemmy instance and promote it on Reddit but that’s largely not the case.

It’s astonishing! I get why dril or some celebrity would go with BlueSky, but journalists seem to be trying to make it a thing too! It’s like did you learn nothing?

I mean there’s nothing wrong with your second point about enjoying what you like and not getting distracted by minutiae, buuuut unlike other franchises Star Trek quite literally does have an official canon:

It would be a bigger continuity issue if Spock had mentioned a sister.

Wow this is a great point. Spock never mentions his family until essentially forced at phaserpoint.

Wake up sheeple Big Trek and Wikipedia are lying to you!

Pretty sure the solid colors are for people who need to shine a specific color of light, and there’s no simpler way to quickly do that. You either download a new app, or google image search and try to find something you can zoom in with.

The sound effects one I have no idea, haha

what app is that?

Hah, I consider non-algorithmic sorting to be RSS’ killer feature. There are a lot of fantastic stories that get published every week that are too dry, too complex, or just plan too accurate and non-sensationalized to get noticed by social media algorithms.

Cory Doctorow wants to wipe away enshittification of tech (www.theregister.com)

Doctrow argues that nascent tech unionization (which we’re closer to having now than ever before) combined with bipartisan fear (and consequent regulation) either directly or via agencies like the FTC and FCC can help to curb Big Tech’s power, and the enshittification that it has wrought.

No human-led system can fully protect against complacency.

The only thing that’s going to stop enshitification is to stop depending on that model for the platforms we want.

Did I misunderstand your comment because “stop depending on that model for the platforms we want” reads like exactly what Mr Doctorow is proposing?

Corgana,

Yes exactly! I am reminded of this TikTok if you haven’t seen it yet.

I read the Mary Sue link you provided but I can’t figure out what character you’re suggesting is “portrayed as inexplicably competent across all domains, unrealistically free of weaknesses, extremely attractive, innately virtuous, and generally lacking meaningful character flaws.” (from your link).

I agree about the timeline stuff and also that the LGBT representation was excellently done and not any character’s “superpower” or anything.

(Also the official initialism for Disco is “DSC” (or “DIS” on Memory Alpha) but never “STD”)

Until SNW used the exact clip of him saying that as archive footage.

They did? Are you sure you’re not just thinking of that meme?

I’m with you, I did not really like 1-2 much (despite liking the characters, sets, costumes music, etc.) and 3 was an improvement, but season 4 I actually thought was phenomenal and what I want to see more of in Trek, specifically the slower pacing and big weird alien-aliens, and a conflict not solved with pew pews.

I feel similarly with Enterprise, Season 4 of ENT was so good, so I’m excited to see if DSC S5 can keep it up.
