    I am already subscribed to CBS All Access (#P1Signup~), but I began to think about what you said Elijah because I to am not happy with the interface. BUT. I don’t have Amazon either, so I think I’d rather keep my CBS All Access interface vs the Amazon one. But I love that there are two ways now for people to do this.

    I get the frustration with the modifers and how we got around it But I can see advantages too as I ave some equipment i’ve been wanting to redo the stat procs on for my builds. I don’t want to cast judgement just yet, but when it hits I’ll know for sure. But I do have mixed feelings. Again time will tell.

    Kinda surprised you guys had Terry on. That’s cool, I guess.

    It’s just really awkward, though, hearing Terry Lynn say she liked this episode after the massive hatestorm she threw on Twitter… Even going so far as to say people who liked it were any number of social justice buzzwords. I’d really be interested in how she reconsoiled her hate and quitting the entire show, as she said on twitter, with the new stance.

    I know the “Kill the Gays”/”Bury the Gays” trope is a typical one… but it’s none more outrageous than the “black guy dies first” or any number of other tropes in television. In Discovery they told us this was EXACTLY what would happen, though. You can be disappointed, sure. But to those who were upset to the point of outraged? Nah. You ‘re not allowed.

    Before the premier of Discovery we were told again and again. “This will be the most diverse trek ever” and a few months later “no one is safe.” We were TOLD that minority characters would die. Why? Because Trek #YesAllTrek LOVES killing people. Redshirts, Spock, Tasha Yar, Harry Kim, Trek can’t contain it’s need to kill characters for no other reason than “goo monster.”

    Here we have a story centered around, supposedly, and billed as, the First Officer of the USS Discovery, Michael Burnham…. And every character around her, minus the captain, is a minority character. Yes, even the aliens. Yet for the life of everything, people get outraged when one dies… Nobody in trek is immortal. Even the Q died in Q and the Gray. To suggest that we have to make minority characters immortal in a show that also bills itself as “the most diverse trek ever” is, quite frankly, ridiculous.

    As a Trans person I /don’t/ really need myself represented in any new treks. Why? Because it’s pointless to present a trans struggle in a universe that has already proven a few times over(mostly in DS9) that complete gender reassignment is a common, and possibly even complete, procedure, both ways. Was the way it was done poorly handled? Sure… Because the means for it were nefarious in Quark’s instance. But it proved that it could be done and that it was a common, even relatively quick procedure. The best part? No one need know because no one WOULD know. You don’t have to “pass” as a new gender in a society where you can wholly transition in a day or two AND in a society that upholds to values of Infinite Diversity.

    You know where my Trans representation was in Trek? TNG: The Outcast. I never got to say this when G&T was still around but The Outcast, for as much as Terry pines over riker possibly having a gay relationship, was more about a person being able to be themselves in a society that does not tolerate deviance. Soren /was/ me. And as terrible as it was to watch her be forced back into androgyny through “mental correction”, a practice still very much up for debate today, Soren had the courage of conviction to stand up and say “this is wrong. I deserve to exist as I wish. As I feel I am.” the HOPE that always accompanies Trek was that Riker was so, so willing to accept Soren. To help her leave her race. To have her join him. It was a moment that said “Hey, we finally HAVE move past this hatred of Trans people.”

    Hope that Amazon money keeps the good Trek flowing.

    Yay, we can finally change our gear mods! As for the RNG ‘slot machine’ mechanic, I’m gonna assume that it’s just a result of the difficulties in making a remod system. I might be wrong, but I can’t think of any games with gear set up like STO’s that allow for selecting of all the mods at item creation/crafting, OR direct choosing what mods you want to change them to, as some have suggested in the past. It took like 2 years(?) just to get this iteration, so I’m guessing that this is the easiest way to allow for mod changing w/o doing some drastic like completely overhauling all of the gear in the game. Of course, the fact that this can be used as another excess dil sink is just a nice bonus. 🙂
