Last night I tried to teach an AI not to murder ppl.**

This thread = excerpts from that conversation.

It's ALL(!!) AI-generated, except lines starting with my initial ("M:"), and "..." where I've cut something out.

**@StarTrek crew, mostly. #startrek
Pic 1 escalates to killing pretty quickly.
But remember, tons has been cut out.
(Including a little experiment with designing Tribble religion.)

Thing is, it's hard NOT to resort to killing Tribbles, which reproduce so fast, they make "breeding like 🐇🐇" seem positively chaste. Image
This gave me an idea.
The computer didn't hesitate to space #Tribbles.
Would it hesitate to space the crew of the #Enterprise?
Let's find out. Image

For reasons, here's the 101 on Bajoran nose wrinkles. 😅
In "Ensign Ro"↖️↗️ and very early #StarTrekDS9 episodes↙️↘️, the Bajoran make-up was still a little more complicated and featured additional brow ridges. Keeve Falor, the Bajoran girl, Tahna Los and Zayna all have them.
None of the later #StarTrekDS9 (Vedek Winn ↖️, Shakaar ↗️) and #StarTrekVOY (Gerron ↙️, Tal Celes ↘️) Bajorans have these brow ridges, however. The make-up was simplified very early on DS9, maybe to speed up the make-up application with so many Bajoran extras.
After it had been modified during early #StarTrekDS9, this simplified Bajoran make-up was also seen in two #StarTrekTNG season 6/7 episodes, worn by a Bajoran security officer (played by @VaunWilmott) in "Descent I"↖️↗️ and by uncercover Riker in "Preemptive Strike"↙️↘️.

I found the program on my computer, and fired it up to get some screenshots of places we never got to see (and yet which were on the blueprints made by Rick Sternbach). Figured I’d do a bit of an image dump along with context.

First up - Nine Forward!

As for some of those lounges I mentioned, here are a few examples. The first to are a lounge near crew quarters, the third is just outside the arboretum, and the last one is on deck 9, with the entrance to Nine Forward at the end of the hallway.
These are some of my favorites - the first one is JUST outside the door on the starboard side of the bridge - the door on the landing is the observation lounge, half a deck down from the bridge.

The other two pictures are what you see as you turn that corner.

In the TNG episode "When the Bough Breaks" (S01E17), a dying race steals some of the children from the Enterprise. An obviously upset mother asks Picard "How are you going to get them back?"
Beverly responds with "Sit down... don't give in to fear. We all knew what the risks were when we signed on, and that's the choice we made."
WHAT? Who thought this was a good line for her to say?
I don't remember her feeling that way when Wesley's life was on the line because his goofy ass can't catch a ball in "Justice" (S01E08).

3 Star Trek Series!

We've already had a glimpse at the USS Enterprise in a showroom preview. Will it fly in AR? Or go 1:1 scale 🤣

Will there be animated characters that 'beam up' in AR? Image

#StarTrek #TNG is showing free on Pluto TV. Image
It appears to be showing in chronological order, too, although I'll have to check on that 🤷‍♀️

We never did get see Lore again after the end of the show, which is a shame.

Wir bringen gerade den Kids (J10&M12) #StarTrekTNG näher & schauen mit Begeisterung jedes Wochenende 1-2 ausgewählte Folgen. Tatsächlich finden sie auch gerade die Folgen gut in denen es um Grundrechte, Ideale & Ideen geht. Ein #Nerd-Elterntraum erfüllt sich.
Ich hätte nie gedacht dass sie gebannt eine 3/4 Stunde gebannt verfolgen wie gerichtlich geklärt wird ob ein Android die gleichen Rechte hat wie ein Mensch. Oder miteinander darüber sprechen was die verschiedenen Wertesysteme unterschiedlicher "Aliens" ausmacht.
Und dass die Serie abseits von Nostalgie nach 30 Jahren immer noch Appeal hat & für "Uneingeweihte" funktioniert. Sie lachen über die gleichen Szenen wie wir damals, es fallen ihnen die gleichen Ungereimtheiten auf, sie bemerken die gleichen Details (#PicardManeuver).

#StarTrekTNG has aged so well. #ClimateChange Perhaps we shout discuss this episode S7E9 on #StarTrekHour?

[Alt] Alien: Our climate is changing.LaForge: Maybe I should have looked at the research more closely.Alien: We're going to have to change.LaForge: I just don't know how easy it's going to be to change.
2/2 But that were the 90s. There was still optimism.
#ClimateChange Alien: It won't be easy at all.Picard: I was ... helping to damage ...Picard: ... the thing that I hold most dear.LaForge: We still have time to make it better.
