Hawking's exact words upon seeing the Warp Core were "I'm working on that."
It became the title of one of my favorite books by William Shatner and Chip Walter from the early 2000s, exploring the beginnings of some technology we take for granted today (e-readers and "PADDs") and some which is still science fiction (nanobots and holodecks).
You all should read Imzadi by Peter David. Its a great read that goes really in-depth to Troi's and Riker's relationship before they are assigned to the Enterprise. This book even helps to bring a lot of sense to Troi's mental statement to Riker of "even I couldn't say goodbye, Imzadi" when Captain Picard introduces them to each other on the bridge of the Enterprise.
DS9: Sisko's monologue from the end of In The Pale Moonlight.
"I lied. I cheated. I bribed a man to cover the crimes of other men. I am an accessory to murder. But the most damning thing of all; I think I can live with it."
Gives me chills every time.
"Computer; delete Gene Rodenberry's entire vision of utopia."
How do you write an article about this and not include a link to the Kickstarter page? Is there a legitimate business reason behind that?
There's a leadership book based on Picard. It's called "Make it so"
The lock on the door is this in white:
It's a door wedge alarm. Not the exact model, but close.
Sorry. Just a random thing I noticed.
the self-taught mycologist that sells products by hyping up the holistic properties of mushrooms? I'm not sure he qualifies as a scientist, but he does make an interesting coffee table book. He doesn't seem to be credited in the "about the author" section for the book, but he did edit it.
My first thought was to throw it in google translate. Then I was sadly diappointed google translate doesn't do Klingon. But Bing does. But it's Bing, so I don't know how good it will be.
HOLY SHIT, I just checked out the kickstarter. That's an amazing amount of money for less than half a day.
I encourage everyone to read the book Free Culture by Lawrence Lessig. Copyright used to be limited to roughly 17 years If I remember correctly. After that every type of work would pass on into the Public Domain. This has changed drastically in the second half of the 20th century when US Congress decided to extend the limit every decade or so to the default of 95 years or so it is today. Lawrence makes the case that Congress essentially overstepped its power (limited by the constitution) and tried to break this cycle of perpetuation with a lawsuit in the early 2000s but it was dismissed by the supreme court. We take this clamping down for granted when in fact it wasn't this way for a long time.
if you've been missing this game, another suggestion: get Sins of a Solar Empire 2 and then the Star Trek mod. It's about the best version of Armada that I've come across (and in some ways better). The mod has active communities and is highly polished.
In U.S. you can subscribe to CBS All Access via Amazon Prime and watch DSC via Amazon with 1080p, 5.1 surround sound, and higher bitrate than Netflix. Not sure about HDR.
As I recall, Nimoy just sort of made this album without consulting Roddenberry or the studio. He dropped the album, complete with the Star Trek theme (and Mission Impossible!), promo pic as well as Nimoy in character as Spock, doing spoken word tracks of (his own) poetry.
Roddenberry and the producers were sort of "What the hell, Leonard?" Roddenberry, always looking for the $$$, sent some memos to Paramount legal trying to get royalties for the music (Gene stole 50% of the royalties from Alexander Courage by adding lyrics to the theme song long AFTER it was written) and usage of the Spock character. Not sure if he ever did.
Shatner, ever competitive, followed suit with The Transformed Man, an even more bonkers album, considering Shatner is effectively tone deaf. It was the stuff of legends for how bad it was. But as with all things, eventually it became cult and then Shatner embraced it his so-bad-it's-good musicality and released more spoken word albums to greater acclaim.
A much simpler time. It would be insane if Robert Downey Jr. Suddenly released an "I am Iron Man!" album with where plays the theme song and recites poetry as Tony Stark. That would be shut down in about 8 seconds.
I don't know if you know this, and I'm not sure what this sub's opinion of what I'm about to tell you is, but there is still more Kirk, Spock and McCoy for you to see, if you can deal with it being animated.
So, if you haven't read the Designing Starships series, you should. The histories of how the various classes and types of ships that are included are awesome reads and the pictures of some concepts/etc of them is so much fun to see and consume. Volume 2: Voyager and Beyond includes a chapter on the Enterprise-J.
Here's a link to the book. https://www.amazon.com/Star-Trek-Designing-Starships-Voyager/dp/1858755328
In the chapter on the Enterprise-J, Drexler specifically says that how you are reacting to the Enterprise-J is exactly what he intended. :) The ship is grown, not built. It uses a propulsion system based on space folding, which is what requires the radically different hull geometry. And so on ... Basically, he wanted to craft a ship that (1) looks something like the "Enterprise" and (2) looked bizarre and against a lot of known/standard Starfleet ship design principles of the TNG era.
There is a great star trek mod for sins of the solar empire called star trek Armada 3
It won a bunch of awards and is awesome.

I still can't read this without tears.
I'm so glad this ridiculous thing exists. It prompted me to go peeking around Amazon and I ended up finding this wacky Ferengi bust/bank. I kinda want to get it if only to increase the clutter at home and annoy my wife.

Buy the TNG Blu-rays homie, if everyone had done that we'd have DS9 and Voyager on Blu-ray by now!
Braga fucked with him specifically though, all related to Jeri Ryan, who Braga was sleeping with at the time, if memory serves. The whole Chakotay/Seven thing was part of it.
Edit: Braga and Ryan were dating. Beltran very vocally complained that himself, Russ, and Wang were all being neglected and Seven was getting all the focus. Which was totally true. The jist is that the whole Chakotay/Seven thing was basically a "shut up Beltran" move, since he had complained so much about his character being neglected and getting no interpersonal relationships. Beltran has done numerous interview about all this. Even Ryan said the relationship came out of no where. She's said it in interviews too.
Here's some background info: ftp://asavage.dyndns.org/Literature/scifi.com/www.scifi.com/sfw/issue171/interview.html
Edit 2, since the above link isn't working anymore: https://web.archive.org/web/20090325140143/http://www.scifi.com/sfw/issue171/interview.html
There's plenty more where that came from courtesy of Google.
I honestly thought everyone knew about this.
TNG series came out when I was around 12 years old. I had little to no religious guidance from my parents while growing up. TNG and other sci-fi shows allowed me to ponder the "big questions" of life that eventually became the core of my ethical belief system.
Now, that all Star Trek series are available on Netflix, I feel there is a renewed interest in going back to the ideals of Star Trek instead of violent, revenge fantasy, torture-is-okay mentality of a program like "24" of which I'm now ashamed of watching in the first place.
In a recent TED presentation by Lauren Zalaznick, she discusses how television is a reflection of our society. So, when I think about the absence of new Star Trek and other quality sci-fi TV series, I realize it’s us as a society that is the problem; not the fault of science fiction/fantasy creators or even network corporate executives.
I has a sad.
The Enterprise-D's Matter/Antimatter Reaction Assembly (M/ARA) is commonly known as the warp core. It provides much of the ship's power, and the resulting 'drive plasma' powers the warp coils in the nacelles, generating the warp field.
There are also smaller fusion reactors, especially in the saucer section, used for auxiliary power and the impulse drives.
EDIT: phrasing error EDIT2: NeoOzymandias is right, the structure is the M/ARA. The chamber with the dilithium crystals in Main Engineering is the M/ARC. : )
It's kind of crazy they choose to do this at a time when litterally no services, not even CBS All Access, are streaming the movie. This would have been a slam dunk marketing ploy for CBS to have it up now during their free month promotion.
fyi you can get the region free TNG Complete Blu-Ray for like $70ish shipped from Amazon UK - and it occasionally drops to like $60ish shipped
again, region free, and has all the subtitles and available dubs too. source: own it

Anyway they also did the 1701 and a shuttlecraft.
I'm pretty sure the 1999 DVD release matches the VHS release. I don't know about streaming it though.
Edit: 1999 DVD Version
The Director's Cut version is the same length as the 1999 version and the VHS version but I think they moved some stuff around and I was under the impression they actually removed some stuff but I never did a close look at it so I could be wrong.
If you'd like to see the comic adaption of Ellison's original, unaltered City on the Edge of Forever, it can be found here
It kind of out there, and it's kind of obvious as to why the Trek producers had to re-write it.

They make comics for TOS, TNG still. As well as Kelvin timeline comics. Less often, but they have done some DS9 and VOY as well (mostly in the Waypoints anthology series). IDW does great stuff as far as Star Trek.
Star Trek - TNG - Mirror Broken is a limited series. It started with a Free Comicbook Day issue and then had 5 issues, which are all out currently. The collected edition is out in march. You can read the FCBD issue on Amazon free here

Hello, I'm a bot! The movie you linked is called The Patriot, here are some Trailers
> Though he never appeared in TOS either.
A lot of fans believe that Trelane is a Q, and the TNG novel Q Squared uses that he is as the plot.
Combs was Weyoun, Brunt, Tiron and Mulkahey on DS9, Shran and Krem on Enterprise, Penk on Voyager. I think he deserves more than an honorable mention.
Craig Mullins did the concept art for Star Trek Legacy and his name is tagged on that image a number of times. also his style matches.
>Just like with the new Luke Skywalker
...I do feel legally obligated to point out even Mark Hamill thinks it's not his Luke.
Hi /r/startrek, Nissan social media team member here. Thought you guys might enjoy this short audio recording of what our response would actually sound like (as read by a tlhIngan Hol expert): https://clyp.it/krejbovv
Definitely the most intimidating way I've ever heard "Altima" pronounced.
Looks to be a mobile game. Doesn't look well received, either.
Shame. STO could use a companion in the full-fledged space.
The first gigahertz processor came out in 2000. The Pentium didn't even exist until 1993 and started at 60Mhz. Most games back in that day didn't even really include a particular processor speed requirement on the box, just a processor model. This one seems to want a 286 AT 10MHZ or better (clearer from the second link below).
From this box shot, the requirements were as follows:
IBM/Tandy and 100% compatibles. DOS 2.1 & higher
5.25" High Density disks enclosed. Color monitor required.
Supports Tandy, EGA & 256 color in MCGA/VGA.
Supports Microsoft mouse. Sound boards supported: Adlib,
Roland, Pro-Spectrum, & Sound Blaster.
Hard disk required.
10 MHZ AT or faster required.
NO DISK COPY PROTECTION
Edit: Ah, and from an ad of the CD-ROM version with slightly higher requirements:
386SX or better. 2MB RAM. DOS 3.3 or higher. Supports Tandy, EGA and 256-color MCGA/VGA graphics. Supports Microsoft mouse. Sound Board needed: Adlib Gold, Sound Blaster, Sound Blaster Pro, or Pro-Audio Spectrum. CD-ROM drive. Speakers or headphones for sound.
I just got it from an android app called Star Trek Worf Soundboard. There are other character soundboards too. My favorite is Picard's "Shut up Wesley!" (no offense Wil). That's what I used to reply to the boyfriend when he complained about my Worf alert.
Not as convenient as built in functionality, but if you want to be directed what random ep to watch, then this works fine:
It dawned on me that anyone can edit that file, paste this in if someone felt like being cheeky. It's just a basic template to pick random eps from whatever show you want.
imo, they're all kind of meh designs and I'm not digging any of them. Maybe the TNG pride delta design but I wish they offered something besides black and white tee and tank options.
I'll probably just stick with the classic rainbow warp trails design I already own. Can't go wrong.
No problem, the founder (Brad Carter aka Redbox Chilipepper) spent a lot of the 90s drifting & red boxing and prank calling around the country. He even wrote a semi-autobiography about his adventures I really think you'd like. PM me your address and I'll buy you a copy.
>Hi there! We have those languages in the reverse direction. English for Korean, Mandarin and Japanese. That's the first step and they will then reverse. It's not Klingon over Mandarin, but really Klingon + Mandarin and all the other languages. Check out: Incubator.
The moderation staff here at /r/StarTrek would like to take this opportunity to thank Mike and Denise for their time today. It’s rare we get to host such legendary figures of the Star Trek universe, especially ones that were responsible for so much of the world building and fit and finish of the universe we all consider almost more real than the world we inhabit. To some -like myself- there is no celebrity behind or in front of the camera who could illicit such excitement and interest. We have been absolutely thrilled and honoured to be able to serve as a forum for this AMA and look forward to seeing what the Okudas do next!
We invite the community here to check out the newest endeavour of this enterprising couple the Roddenberry Vault available at Amazon now, as well as the revised and expanded Star Trek Encyclopedia. Do also check out the movie Sully which Mike worked on, out on DVD and Blu-Ray today.
Thanks again for your time Mike and Denise, live long and prosper!
Maybe this is the nostalgia talking, but I always remember Shatner's Tek series as being just a fun read. Did it make sense? Hardly. Was it a lot of fun to read anyway? Absolutely.
Considering Microsoft stopped supporting Media Center in 2009 I'm not surprised that Netflix doesn't want to continue support of something even the maker stopped supporting 6 years ago. Heck development stopped back in Windows 7, they ported it straight over to Windows 8 and that was the end.
There are a lot of other options for Netflix on your TV, including just about every smart TV and any streaming stick.
Media Center has very few users and there are other alternatives available, so Microsoft ended support, and Netflix doesn't want to bother with it anymore either.
They posted an update where they were crowded together, watching it pass 1 million. LeVar's voice is nearly cracking from emotion.
They've already got another 500k at this point. 32,000 backers.
I hope they add some stretch goals to keep interest high. One of the most deserving Kickstarters I've ever seen. Burton struggled for years to keep RR on the air, and it's nice that he can directly enlist the help of people now in more ways than just a PBS telethon.
Hey, solid work! That's one of the most lucid and meaty answers I've ever gotten in a Trek-related question that isn't a simple factoid ("What was X:s name?"). Your reply embodies the finest traditions of Starfleet Academy.
It would be easy enough to make I suppose. Grab a free audio editor like Audacity and then download the audio from YouTube that you want and grab 15 mins of it, cut it, save it, then you could just put it on repeat or if you want to loop it yourself you could watch something like this tutorial
For me, I use the 10 hour long youtube video and just make sure I'm on wifi.
I have one of the DS9/ VOY style combadges that is held on with a magnet and it has this plastic housing you fit under your shirt/uniform. It makes a chirp and then has a voice saying; “Bridge here, status report.”. I still have it and I think it just needs batteries to work.
It was something I got for a Christmas gift back in like 1996-1997 not 100% which year. There may be some still available through e-bay if you search. I think it was like $40 (CAD) when it sold originally. Likely fairly expensive now due to lack of them around. I can go see if it has s brand-name on it somewhere and I’ll come back here and edit my response to update you.
So I took some photos so you can see what I mean here: https://imgur.com/a/RA3UL
I also did a quick google search and saw exactly what it was called "Star Trek Voyager: Talking Communicator". It did come out in 1996. I saw on amazon (US version) to buy used for 89.99 (USD): https://www.amazon.com/Voyager-Starfleet-Communicator-Talking-Sound/dp/B00EFZQN0M
There may be other more recent made versions out there but this is the original one I got back in 1996-1997.
Hope this helps.
It's a decent comic. Mainly more fan service and fun than anything else. IMHO, well worth it if you're both a Who and Trek fan.
No, this is an SNES game. Maybe you're in Europe, where they have a different look?
This is an N64 game, for reference: http://www.instructables.com/image/FOSXQUDG7DYPPLN/Nintendo64-Game-Pak-Stash-Box.jpg
You're not getting downvoted for (not) fighting -- people are downvoting you because your comment isn't adding to the discussion because you're giving wildly inaccurate figures for the history of processor speeds. You're almost a decade off as far as when 1 gigahertz processors were being released. Here's an article about the processor wars back then -- look at the date: it's in 2000, not 1992!
If you don't have it, Sins:Rebellion is currently on sale at the Humble Bundle store for $13.33. Of course it will probably be around $10 when the Steam sale kicks off on the 18th.
and just to clarify, when I was talking about the sarcophagus ship, I was talking about this
Two pages into the Google results of what I thought would be some funny Snapewife thing but turned out to be scary stalking, I get this tweet....what in the hell? So she copes with Brent not welcoming her stalking by believing a clone replaced him?!
They had a Kickstarter where they asked for $10,000 and got over $100,000. They don't own the rights, but like all fanfilms they're allowed to play in the universe as long as they don't make a profit.

Star Trek: Starfleet Academy was my favorite. It's kind of old though.

Got the disks but too lazy to dig them out? Plex. Rip all your disks (using handbrake or makemkv or something), point Plex at the folder with all the episodes, stream to your device of choice.
It's changed my TV viewing. I own all the Trek that I'd want to rewatch anyway. Now it's all available any time from any room, it remembers where I paused.
It looks as though the Carbon Creek tracks are listed on "Star Trek Enterprise Collection Volume II" 2.6 to 2.10. I hope this it what you are looking for.
Back in 2007, Obsidian turned down a Star Trek RPG: The Knights of New Vegas
"Just as Aliens was cancelled—and right after they'd finished both expansion packs to Neverwinter Nights 2—Urquhart got a call from Todd Vaughn, vice president of development at Bethesda. The folks there had just released Fallout 3, and their internal team was moving on to Skyrim. They had something else in mind for Obsidian.
"We've talked to the Bethesda guys more than once about doing games," Urquhart said. "They called me once about Star Trek, and I was probably being a little bit too much, too arrogant of a developer... This would've been like 2007—way before the movies—and it was like, Star Trek wasn't in a good place. I don't know what I said, but I now know it probably sounded arrogant.""
It sucks that they were so dismissive. It could have been great if the Obsidian devs had been fans of Star Trek, but I guess they like South Park better.
He's making a little bit of a joke. If you haven't seen it though, oh man, you're missing out. It looks like they just took it off Netflix, but it's worth a couple bucks to rent and enjoy
Some good suggestions so far. A couple to add, though:
The Orville. In all seriousness, speaking as somebody who watched TNG when it first aired, by the second episode of The Orville it felt like I was watching TNG again (not surprisingly, it's also produced by a number of Star Trek alumni). And that's got new episodes on Fox.
Space 1999. It's a show from 1975, in which the moon is blown out of orbit by a nuclear accident, and drifts through the galaxy, encountering strange new worlds and civilizations, and...well, it's basically Star Trek, but the spaceship is the moon instead of the Enterprise. It has mainly aged well, although there are some very 1970s moments in it. That said, the second season...just isn't very good. You may want to stick with the first season only. The entire show is on Shout! Factory in HD here for free: http://www.shoutfactorytv.com/series/space-1999
If I can remember it was in one of them Section 31 Hidden files. When the produces and writers mentioned it, there was only a very small hint in a episodes when Odo asked when they were expecting him back, she replies with not for at least another 200 years. That alone was really no indication of anything, just made me think wow they live long.
Edit: Season 3 Extra 1 "The Birth of the Dominion and Beyond" 8 minutes in.
I can't find a link to the exact version, and I think it's a studio recording. I have the album on Deezer, but here's the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Music-Star-Trek-Prague-Philharmonic/dp/B002EZLPNA
Buy from Amazon UK even if you are in a different country. Great Price! Great Box Set. Each Episode was re-mastered and the extras are awesome.
There are lots of official maps. This one is from This book from 2002. They've also released a high quality stellar cartography book as recently as 2018.
This isnt entirely fool proof - they also block datacenter IP subnets, like digital ocean and AWS.
VanishedVPN claim to be doing something different that apparently Netflix is unable to block, and so far they have been right. I've been with them for over 12 months and never has Netflix blocked them in any of the regions I have tried
You can also get more language tracks by fiddling with the Netflix Language setting, as Netflix does not show you most foreign languages in the track selector unless you have also set it as your Netflix language.
I checked that there is e.g. dubbing in Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, voiceover in Polish, and dubs and voiceovers in other languages that I can't recognize. And subtitles for over 20 languages.
Note that you need to change Netflix UI language to see audio/subtitle tracks for languages that are not common in your area. Netflix does not show all tracks to reduce clutter.
There was a comic book that took place in the TOS era mirror universe, but had a short story intermission or whatever showing Mirror Picard's rise to power. I remember it was decent, but can't remember a single detail from the plot. https://www.comixology.com/Star-Trek-Mirror-Images/comics-series/2175
(EDIT: fixed link)
I've heard the DS9 relaunch novels are pretty good (although I've only read A Stitch in Time myself).
I'm willing to admit that I am a bit of a fanfiction junkie, but most of that isn't very good either, sadly. There are a few gems out there, though.
Years ago, there was a CD that compiled PDFs of every single Trek comic from the original Gold Keys right up until IDW got the license around maybe 10-12 years ago. If you have a CD-ROM and don’t mind the sub-optimal reading format, I think I remember picking it up off eBay for maybe $15.
Edit This is the one. I overestimated the range (it covers everything up until 2002) and underestimated the cost (it’s about $30), but it’s still a good deal. It can be a pain to read as PDFs, but 500 issues for $30...
I don't know if you knew, but that is a book:
>Over two hundred years ago, the life of one of Starfleet's earliest pioneers came to a tragic end, and Captain Jonathan Archer, the legendary commander of Earth's first warp-five starship, lost a close friend. Or so it seemed for many years. But with the passage of time, and the declassification of certain crucial files, the truth about that fateful day -- the day that Commander Charles "Trip" Tucker III didn't die -- could finally be revealed.
>Why did Starfleet feel it was necessary to rewrite history? And why only now can the truth be told?
Star Trek The Next Generation: Technical Manual
Basically goes through and explains all about how the ship works from an in-universe point of view. It's actually really fun to see all the explanations they came up with for everything.
You can use a VPN, like NordVPN or ExpressVPN, to change your IP address to different countries to allow you to watch region locked content. I paid I think 70 dollars for 3 years? Something like that. It was on sale when I bought but there's all sorts of different length subscriptions you can buy. A Link to NordVPN
Maybe something like this but with less green I guess: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003YV2PIM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Just as a thought the novel for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Invasion: Time's Enemy https://www.amazon.com/Times-Enemy-Star-Trek-Space/dp/0671541501 I enjoyed. Good read. Memorable for me. Maybe it was because I read it when I was cold and had nothing to do but still good read I think.
It's also very close to Galaxy Street, Nova St, Satellite St and Uranus.
I doubt a star would even notice. For reference, you can fit about 1,304,000 Earth sized planets inside the Sun. The energy required to blow up an Earth sized planet is tiny in that perspective.
Funny story, his brother is the VP of marketing for a regional insurance company out of Pennsylvania. Humorous guy, actually makes insurance tolerable to listen to.
I'm playing Sins of a Solar Empire with the Star Trek Mod. I don't know if that is exactly what you are looking for, but I think that it's enjoyable.
It looks like the guy who made the original screensaver has been MIA since 2006 and hasn't updated it, but some awesome people have taken it upon themselves to make updates for it and it just keeps getting better apparently. It's one of the few really good TNG screensavers out there that I have found. Either way, thought you guys would appreciate it probably more than anyone.
For you non-command-line users out there (or if you're just lazy), there's a lightweight cross-platform program available for it called youtube-dlg (the g standing referring to GUI or Graphical User Interface). Located here:
All words are made up.
You should also know that "trekkie" is an actual word. According to this, "trekkie" dates back to 1888 (though, obviously, not originally referring to Star Trek):
So, where do you draw the line? Is "yuppie" not a word? What are your guidelines for determining "actual" words? Considering it's commonly known in pop culture and can be found in several dictionaries, I'd say you'd be hard-pressed to prove "trekkie" is not an "actual" word.
NordVPN is doing a fine job for me, they have lots of US servers (Stargate SG-1!!), but also in a lot (not all!) other countries, which doesn't really matter, because the US is the most important one for Dutch users. I think Netflix can't block it because you use a different server every time you connect. Also I suspect Netflix doesn't care too much about this, they're just doing as they are told and are not going to lift an extra finger because their interest is having a lot of subscribers, who will be more inclined to stay with more content available.

Star Trek: Ex Machina is a direct sequel to Star Trek The Motion Picture.
It's also a sequel to the TOS episode "For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky", so you should watch that before reading.
