And so, from all of us here at Starfleet to all of you out there, wherever you are: Remember, the light at the end of the wormhole may be you.

Goodnight

Others have brought up other reasons, but one I haven't seen is simply the depth of material to work with. Trek has had multiple multi-season series and tons of movies, which means you can basically find the right image for any meme if you watch enough of it.

I'm in the middle of my fifth or sixth Voyager rewatch now, and I don't even like Voyager that much. It's the perfect sort of thing to watch as I drift off to sleep, and the quality really improves after Year of Hell.

I wish that title was different. Bill doesn't need his ego stroked anymore.

There's also the song 99 Luftballoons which includes the line "Everyone's a Captain Kirk."

Not exactly a positive analogy, but it shows how deeply embedded it is in a collective culture.

Technically correct. The best kind of correct

NYC MTA sets Manhattan congestion price at $15 for most vehicles, just one MTA vote left before the first congestion pricing in North America ( www.planetizen.com )

New York City’s congestion pricing program is moving forward with a $15 fee on passenger vehicles, reports Stephen Nessen in Gothamist, after the MTA board voted to approve it. The program now enters a 60-day public comment period before a final vote....

The last time I was in NYC I was awoken by some asshole running his motorcycle up and down sixth avenue at five in the goddamn morning. And I was on the 14th floor of a hotel.

The fact that they weren't drawn and quartered in the street shows what a lawless place NYC is.

There’s that welcoming New York attitude.

No wonder I avoid it

Semi-Hemi-Demigod ,
@Semi-Hemi-Demigod@kbin.social avatar

Yet another great example of the NYC mindset

@Semi-Hemi-Demigod@kbin.social avatar

It’s so NYC to think there’s only two mindsets: You, and everyone else

Semi-Hemi-Demigod ,
@Semi-Hemi-Demigod@kbin.social avatar

If you think that’s me talking bad about NYC then you’re way too fragile to actually be from NYC

And yet you continue to reply? Definitely not a New Yorker.

Definitely not a New Yorker. They’re much better at insults.

We allowed corporations to go global without a global labor movement and global regulations.

Millennials generally had hope and lost it.

Gen Z never had any hope.

I teach undergraduates and it’s hit or miss whether they understand what a file path is.

I provide tech support to Linux sysadmins and it's still hit or miss whether they understand what a file path is.

What is your unpopular flim opinion

I’ll go first. Mine is that I can’t stand the Deadpool movies. They are self aware and self referential to an obnoxious degree. It’s like being continually reminded that I am in a movie. I swear the success of that movie has directly lead to every blockbuster having to have a joke every 30 seconds

The movie was alright.

“Somehow the emperor returned” was terrible.

@Semi-Hemi-Demigod@kbin.social avatar

It makes sense that the rebels didn't know about it. It doesn't make sense that the first the audience hears about it is that line. It feels lazy. They could have mentioned, in an offhand way, that the remnants of the Empire is pursuing cloning tech. Not only would this tie the final trilogy to the second trilogy. (First? Episodes 1-3, anyway) But it would also make that line make way more sense.

As as much as the Thrawn trilogy feels like bad fanfic, it does tie the whole clone wars/rebellion thing together, and features someone who comes back as a clone. I think it would have made a way better trilogy than what we got.

I'm sure they discussed it internally. It went something like this:

Manager: "Our last item on the agenda is the KOTOR remake"

All: laughter

I hope we do old meme July again next year. That was so much fun.

Modern wizards pore over ancient tomes (old forum posts) and write spells for eldritch beings in arcane languages (program computers) and are fueled by power potions that give them unnatural abilities (coffee)

When I rode I went beyond being invisible to just imagining they are all actively targeting me, and making sure I didn't give them a chance.

It's a problem of motivation, all right? Now if I work my ass off and Initech ships a few extra units, I don't see another dime; so where's the motivation?

I don't like reboots but a reboot of Office Space where they're all working from home has some comedic potential

Yeah, I know. I was making a joke. I loves me some trains. I was watching White Christmas last night and trains feature heavily and it looks like such a civilized mode of travel.
