Trek Talk - Episode 108 - S34 is S45's Bitch
Gary the Hate Camel presents a podcast with Tech, Kirk, Handy and Boom: Guests: DonaldTrump (34), MadamStarGazer (66), Tolstoy, DukeTalan (45) List of notable things: 0:08 - Reminder off the top how S45 beat up on S34, and then some real incursions talk on scoring. 5:48 - Getting invaded during your BYE week...then back to 45 vs 34 and the scoring mechanics. 13:48 - Boom scored 3/4ths the points of all of S34. 15:59 - The cost vs reward analysis, and also server population, really impacts how incursions play out. 21:10 - One big cannot stop a raid.  A big can break incursions by being cracked, but they can't make incursions. Even if they can crack other bigs, you still need a big to get cracked which goes back to a big can break things. A whale cannot make incursions though, plain and simple. 25:48 - Ocm got wrecked by Techman16! 27:14 - Let's talk about grinding crews! Nerrrrrrrrrrd time! 39:13 - Small nugget, Lower Decks arc was supposed to be 2 months and it got shortened to 1.  Womp womp.  And some Ferengi and mining hate. 40:54 - Some Feesha love (it's real name is Fajita). 44:57 - Meta orientation? Know your mitigation floor and ceiling! 48:21 - Self-burn, and porn-Mudd? 50:37 - Let's talk diminishing returns kids, because math is fun!!! 52:27 - StrangeKirk nods off learning about officers, and Tolstoy fails to follow through. Shame. Shame. Shame. 54:07 - More shame! Watch Lower Decks damnit! But first, a raiding anecdote. 56:35 - Ok, now to actual Lower Decks talk, and TOS Mudd ruled! 1:02:42 - Denise Crosby leaving TNG: hot gossip, definitely not decades old news, and some other TNG talk. 1:05:07 - TNG: when hamburger helper goes wrong. And then just talk about Star Trek in general covering the different series. 1:13:15 - Direct attack on earth in Enterprise, killing millions, and digging a trench from Florida to Venezuala.  Say what now? THEY SHOT US IN THE DICK! But apparently Star Trek Enterprise is really good! 1:20:29 - Oh yeah, Picard is a thing! Season 2 apparently is awful. 1:25:31 - Let's trash on Star Wars and the Death Star some! 1:29:42 - Riker being horny as a security concern, and general Starfleet security failures. 1:32:25 - Join us to talk about the good stuff!

Hosts: StrangeKirk, Handy Guests: UltimateDJz (15), DragonKeeper (52), JimmJones, Trojan, Sloterer, SARRescueRanger, DonaldTrump (34), Stratalorian(9), MadamStarGazer (66) List of notable things: 0:00 - DJz interview starts, and he is aggravated about the game! 2:26 - Monetizing content is ok, for example the Dukat officer purchase model. 5:06 - Frustrations with the time now required from the game to stay on par (grinding). 15:56 - DJz thinks people would riot if Scopely didn't release new content one month.  I think if Scopely said they were going to address a list of meaningful bugs we've all been complaining about, as well as address some gameplay improvements we've been clamoring for, not only would we not riot we would throw Scopely a fucking party!  There are a lot of players that would like to put more money into their bases or ships as well, and never can because they're all but forced to invest in whatever the latest content is.  A gap month would not cause Scopely any undue fiscal or "social contract" harm IF they were upfront about what they wanted to address and those things are items that players care about. /rant 18:40 - How about we look at long existing events and loot tables!!! 27:24 - Ty'Gokor is a bug, it was never meant to be the way it is. 29:31 - Scopely ignores too many things for too long. And speaking of, if Scopely encouraged us to not save up forever, we'd spend what we've held onto and probably buy more packs as well. And if there wasn't an Arc, instead put up older content items and let people buy those. Or to encourage spending boost station and ship packs with an extra 10% mats that month. People will buy, and you're not breaking the bank on that it's a small boost that will buy them the time to do game improvements that people will truly appreciate, while still making their money that they want to make. 36:30 - Simplify things by, for example, allowing the new content to satisfy faction dailies. You're destroying another faction! Consolidate these grinds, which doesn't really encourage spending anyways. 41:35 - Scopely needs to listen a little more to the people that are tied into the player base. 43:25 - Questions and Answers with DJz from the audience (listen up, there's some fun questions in here).

Gary the Hate Camel presents a podcast with Tech, Kirk, Handy and Boom: Guests: Pho3nix, DonaldTrump (34), Stratalorian (9),  Topics Discussed: 0:27 - Pho3nix enjoys walking around like a crackhead? And he's also banned from the Scopely store? 3:25 - We catch some people up on the fact that multiphasic credits are well worth it, for us it's literally free stuff! 7:26 - I am thankful Scopely uses a third party payment processing service, I don't want to lose my house! 10:50 - Incursions was a hoot, because I can't stop talking about incursions, it's my favorite! 15:50 - Best place in regular space to kill Federation ships? 17:37 - A loophole!? 20:43 - Incursion SMS sucks! 22:36 - Server 42 player base is less toxic than Server 34? 25:08 - A Stratalorian perspective on incursions. 30:59 - The downside of trying to pair off winners versus winners and losers versus losers in incursions. 32:40 - Orville talk, spoilers for the finale! WATCH IT!!!!!!!!!!! 37:24 - Waxing philosophical about CNC in a Star Trek spoof. 40:15 - We don't need the fish pussies StrangeKirk is peddling. It's economics people. 42:56 - Back to the Orville, and Techman's re-enactment! 46:54 - Ok, done with Orville, so let's talk NONA drama! 52:24 - You can't just be an asshole and expect event participation to offset that fact. Huh. Guess I'm fucked! 59:00 - Friends having each others back no matter what isn't a friendship, it is a cultist mercenary blind loyalty situation, and throughout history these have not been positive. 1:01:21 - Boom DOES appreciate it!

Gary the Hate Camel presents a podcast with Tech, Kirk, Handy and Boom: Guests: MadamStarGazer (66), ocmsrzr, InquisitorBurnzy (45), JustJoel (31), PimpSauce (52), Molly_Weasley (21), Stratalorian (9), Pho3nix, Parzival, DonaldTrump (34) Topics Discussed: 0:00 - The Craig hate starts early today! 1:00 - Don't say gay! 3:14 - On to sci-fi! Orville is now streaming on Disney+ so you are running out of excuses for not watching it! Spoilers ahead! 12:54 - Craig barfs the audio for about 13 seconds, our apologies! Still talking Orville though! 17:46 - Conflict over the past few days around trying to call out mental illness. Not ok. And if a referee tells you to stop, you stop, it's not that hard. 23:55 - JustJoel is an alliance mate of the person booted, and apparently that guy is a real unpleasant individual. 26:26 - And back to the Orville!!! We can't quit it! 29:12 - Sometimes you have to stir drinks in an unorthodox manner... And some beer talk, because some people love yak piss. And how beer now has as many variants as weed does, because some people appear to also be hippies. Yes, Boom hates beer and weed, get over it. Give me a real drink and STFU. 38:17 - On to STFC talk, and the next upcoming incursions! S45 got paired against S49, which has a lot more power than S45. 50:30 - Everyone is glad that for incursions our opponents are being rotated! 56:08 - Tech can't kill a capital trader in Kronos with his Augur unless he hits it multiple times. For shame! 1:07:20 - Treachery and treason in incursions!  Wait...doesn't this all seem really familiar?  Like we covered it last week?  :eyes: 1:13:24 - It's odd that aggressive alliances don't go all-in on incursions. 1:14:30 - What we do when someone rolls into our territory and hits one of our bases? We actually DON'T go crack every base out there just because someone hit a base in our territory. Unless it's during the actual territory defense time, in which case it's straight to war do not pass go. NONA is...less aggressive, and shit is about to go off the rails! 1:15:45 - We have some serious underlying Parzival frustration here! 1:20:57 - Parzival explains his issue with Pho3nix and Pho3nix explains his side. And calm, respectful conversations are Handy's hope...has he never BEEN on the internet before? 1:26:34 - Ocm, by the transitive property, hates women. And Parzival and Pho3nix both work with very difficult people, so the combativeness is weird to Techman. 1:32:16 - Techman asks if Parzival can unblock Pho3nix for 5 minutes, Parzival declines. He has come to a conclusion about Pho3nix, so he doesn't need to know anything else. Personally, this seems a little shortsighted, but I don't know what happened so maybe it makes complete sense? 1:36:55 - Duel with Parrots at dawn! Because WTF is normal, anyways? 1:41:11 - Is it more exhausting to be accepting and move on, or to be angry and hold a grudge? For me, it's hard to always turn the other cheek, it's easier to hate people for their shortcomings. 1:46:48 - Mongo just pawn in great game of life. 1:49:43 - If you haven't thought about murdering someone, you haven't loved them. 1:50:33 - Boom does something many should have done much earlier during this podcast, and pleads the 5th. And watch the %&#@ing Orville! And remember...spread the hate!

Also general comicon talk! 4:27 - Lower Decks and Strange New Worlds crossover? Saywhatnowhuh? Hopefully can be good but we'll see! 11:11 - Incursions, god damnit! They're bloody awesome! 14:31 - Shimanzu lost on both servers, and may have an addiction problem. 18:02 - With friends like this... 20:18 - Molly Weasley from Server 21, our first Server 21 guest! And more incursions talk (a lot of it)! 37:43 - Let's ask Molly how we improve incursions!  Womp womp.  But the PvP areas were a problem, people didn't show. 46:23 - When you're destroyed, you lose everything beyond your protected cargo. It's a win for Scopely! 50:44 - Incursion improvement, devalue the raiding? I personally prefer the raiding, most fun, so wow! 53:18 - The SMS is a real problem, too much cowardice! 55:34 - Make no mistake, incursions was a lot of fun, it reminded several of us of the game when it was fun. AKA Territory hate! 1:02:33 - Techman wants drama. DRAMAAAAA! Traitors abound, hang them for high treason!!! 1:09:40 - It isn't over until it's over Shimanzu! 1:17:41 - Techman asks the real question! And not supporting your server; 98% of the people playing the event just want their server versus the other server, so when you keep your internal server issues going you're just saying F-you to 98% of your server because you have to make it all about you. 1:19:41 - Do we think people will just start turtling and not getting involved in incursions due to the cost vs payout? 1:26:08 - Gator's server 28 experience for incursions!

Stir that mac-n-cheese! 8:25 - Handy brings some S34 news! Don't worry, it's not a big deal, and 3 months late now. 9:17 - Conspiracy theories, because people need to believe their hate is justified. 11:58 - Callback to the stir that mac-n-cheese button, but Handy isn't having it. 12:53 - Picard talk. It's too long for the story. 14:42 - Some Prodigy talk. Also Star Trek Enterprise season 4 gets a big endorsement from Techman. 17:22 - And then...X-Men the Animated Series and Spider Man the Animated Series talk? 23:40 - StrangeKirk's rest stop, aka "pickle park", story told second hand(y). 27:49 - STFC talk, and broken cross-server armada leaderboards. 29:03 - Techman...knows a little too much about porn. 32:24 - Trek Talk now reads from Urban Dictionary... *Picard Facepalm* 36:02 - STFC lapdogs. 39:42 - Account selling followup, and the value of the game to some. 46:36 - Sarcophagus regrets! Don't buy it!!! 51:11 - Techman16 should reroll on S45! 53:37 - Techman16 asks the important questions on smuggling. 54:52 - STFC Arc talk and the positive parts of the lower decks (mission dialogue)! 58:59 - Alliances get in trouble when 1 or 2 people run the show and nobody else is involved. 1:02:34 - Evil Badgey "as a playable character"?  Say what huh? 1:04:38 - HALO on Paramount talk. And Boom explains the history of Bungie very incorrectly! Bungie was first, 343 was Microsoft, then Microsoft spun Bungie back off but retained 343. Halo 2 and 3 were released under Microsoft. 1:14:34 - DS9 and grind? Nope, TNG for you! And some Voyager talk too. 1:18:14 - TNG is hypocritical in several ways. 1:21:09 - I got 99 problems and Borg inconsistencies are one of them. 1:24:04 - Have the Borg assimilate Burnham, then they'll all rust from crying over nothing constantly. 1:24:37 - I seen bad reboots arizin', I see bad scifi on the way... 1:28:32 - HP Lovecraft reference! Boy, was THAT guy racist or what? 1:29:25 - If I knew when I was dying, I would feel unburdened to do all the terrible things that need doing. And cocaine. 1:32:22 - So, what did we learn today?

Trek Talk - Episode 100 - All Good Things...
Gary the Hate Camel presents a podcast with Tech, Kirk, and Handy: Guests: Stratalorian (9), RisingPhoenix (14), DariusRex, TwistedEvil (34) Topics Discussed: 00:23 - Out of the gate with Strange New Worlds and Captain Kirk talk (StrangeKirk feels he sucks, and I agree that his energy feels off). 7:00 - Tech feels the writing staff did a poor job in the SNW finale, made Pike look like an awful captain, Handy disagrees. 12:30 - Ground control to Major StrangeKirk (he spaced out)? Anyways, back to SNW. 13:54 - SNW Spock vs TOS Spock, and how Spock's current outbursts renders his small facial cues irrelevant compared to TOS Spock. 18:44 - SNW didn't end on a great note, though the show is good overall, just not a great season finale. And if you come into SNW having not seen TOS then it stands up better. 22:08 - What is Kirk's past in the prime timeline? 26:07 - How about this shitty STFC game? Incursions. 32:42 - RisingPhoenix notes they added CS reps and support staff before incursions which doesn't bode well. 35:47 - Techman16 wonders if you'll be able to PM players on the other server during incursions. The answer is yes. I speak from the fuuuuutuuuurrrrrrrreee! 39:29 - Someone from 34 is trying to recruit players from server 31. That's...not how that works. 43:00 - People would clamor for a baby Jellyfish! And ISS Jellyfish talk. 49:50 - Darius gives his incursion take, and Techman16 is adorably optimistic about their chances (they do not win). 51:30 - Back to Orville talk! Excellent sci-fi according to Techman16 and Darius. 53:07 - Techman16 needs to know why Handy thought Babylon 5 is bad? And then Darius says some stupid, stupid, stupid stuff about Firefly. 59:15 - We'll talk Orville next week, but also...right now! And Seth Macfarlane is clearly a sci-fi nerd. And Boom does NOT edit that out. 1:01:51 - Thoughts on SNW's Kirk from Darius, and the SNW finale 'Balance of Error'. 1:08:12 - Handy and StrangeKirk bail when the nerd talk happens. 1:08:55 - StrangeKirk is a porn snob, and Techman16 feels the Star Trek porn really pays homage to the original series. Should have seen THAT coming. 1:10:33 - Things are becoming clearer... 1:15:05 - Please explain 'carefully ethnic'. And no, Boom is not cutting this part out. 1:18:36 - But there ARE rules here! And more more more sci-fi shows talk. 1:26:03 - Bob Lazar is a good interview, and Joe Rogan has a good interview with him (it's worth it even if you HATE Joe Rogan). 1:31:04 - Tech and Darius do NOT confuse me, though I wonder if we're more likely to generate a 'warp field' by rather than simply counteracting gravity, counteracting most of it by identifying how (presupposing it exists) we counter the impact of dark matter. Given that we are relatively certain there is something non-luminous granting significant mass (and therefore gravity). And while we're at it, why do people always screw up infinity? It's the Rick and Morty effect, they say infinite universes and then "in some of those there's..." and begin to reduce it down to "we can do this a few times". But infinity is infinite, it does not reduce. Therefore if there are infinite universes then instead of "in some of those there's..." it should be "in infinite of those there's...". Also, you guys are fucking nerds. 1:31:42 - Slight audio hiccup, so please like and subscribe to our podcast and leave a nice rating! And watch Orville so they make a season 4!!!

Also ocm is late to the SNW party. 4:24 - Handy is still making coffee. Also war on S34? Screenshotting and revisionist history? 10:37 - War in STFC is funner when your enemby takes it personally. Plus they show their true colors. 13:45 - Too much emotional investment in STFC? 19:40 - Does it matter, ultimately, why war was declared? And don't just boot a player immediately for causing war! 24:40 - XBox live lobby is NOT the bar to which we are trying to lower ourselves to. 28:23 - The rejection of reality, and self-righteousness. 33:24 - Sometimes people just need a bad guy to dislike. 37:10 - More gamers need to play sports to understand than an opponent need not be an ideological conflict. 40:09 - In conclusion, DARK is the worst and everyone should hate them. 40:59 - On to regular Star Trek talk! Why the hard-on for the Gorn in Strange New Worlds? 45:55 - Gorn, the one alien that didn't get turned on by Kirk, apparently. 47:29 - Why did Kirk not know anything about the Gorn given how big an impact they are having in SNW? Just like why when Kirk ran into Khan did Spock (who served with La'an) not mention how dangerous augments are? 52:02 - Did, uh, did you get my voicemail about the Gorn? 54:41 - Why, in Star Trek, are starships so easy to hijack? Lock the damn door! Noonien Singh, Noonien Soong, names are hard! And put on a damn seatbelt! 58:51 - Discovery isn't unpopular? No accounting for taste, I suppose... 1:00:29 - Pike is the greatest captain of all time, according to Ocm. 1:02:04 - How is Starfleet SO bad at shooting phasers accurately? Pointing is hard! And flashlights are harder. 1:06:16 - The real costs of the Treaty of Algernon. 1:09:56 - The proud naval tradition of mutiny! The reason most are generally unarmed on a ship. 1:11:31 - SNW fairy tale episode was a lot of fun! 1:13:53 - Audience participation! Seriously, come join us, slackers. 1:15:40 - Latest Orville episode with some gender identity crisis. Solid episode, but many feel the first season episode covered it better. 1:26:16 - Wrapping up Orville talk, still a good show absolutely worth watching. 1:27:13 - StrangeKirk leaves to write erotic fan fiction of Spock and Nurse Chapel. 1:27:53 - For All Mankind is possibly a good show to watch?

Trek Talk - Episode 98 - Movie Talk
Gary the Hate Camel presents a podcast with Tech, Kirk, Handy and Boom: Guests: MadamStarGazer (66), ocmsrzr, DukeTalan, Mr.GiggityGiggity (45) Topics Discussed: Apparently today we are Movie Talk, not Trek Talk. 0:00 - Eggs, coffee, craig hate, and ocm's calve fetish. 1:55 - Strange New Worlds and Orville talk! SNW was a trip, but a fun filler episode. Hint: a nebula is involved. Because a nebula is always involved. Why the heck do they go into nebula's to begin with? Do they WANT chaos? Starfleet is some weird chaotic good, lawful neutral mix. Oh, right, this isn't even discussed in the podcast so I'll shut up now. 7:37 - Speaking of your holodeck porn addiction, Ocm, we need to talk to you about these holoprograms you've been saving... 9:36 - Issues with old paint and prosthetic special effects. Think "Radium Girls". 14:15 - Can't find big men that act well? What, you don't think you could replace Pacino and DeNiro in Heat with Stallone and Schwarzenegger? Also lots of Dave Bautista talk. 17:14 - Also, how does Tom Cruise get cast as a tough guy? Seriously? 20:24 - Ocm is a filmography expert, and has an eye for tough women in movies, some good and some awful. Also, F Navy squeals. Now watch Dinner with Andrew, and Way of the Gun. 30:11 - Back to the Orville! We definitely didn't get off topic, what are you talking about? So...social issues in shows! 38:50 - Nichelle Nichols was unhappy being on Star Trek due to lines being cut due to complaints, and stayed due to MLK. 44:59 - We should all be striving for improvement. Also diction! Why has diction reduced so greatly? People need to read. 47:13 to 47:25ish we have some odd audio jumps 51:02 - Ocm is a very angry liberal! Oh boy, we're getting political!!! Why did I have to miss this one? 1:01:42 - Star Trek utopia cannot be achieved with all this bickering! Also TNG showed significant warts in the Federation! "Measure of a Man", anyone? 1:04:17 - Who here knows doomsday preppers? I mean... 1:07:23 - The Grasshopper and the Ant, a Pixar classic! ...but still talking doomsday prepping. 1:15:10 - STFC new galaxy tree research. It sucks. 1:18:01 - Ocms community manager issue, and the word cavalcade is used! Diction people, diction! 1:30:10 - Incursions, hear what some thought it would be! And boredom combined with discouragement around the G5 economy. 1:35:13 - Emortional support group! And Handy's recent game enjoyment struggles due to drama. Then back to incursions. 1:40:39 - The way to make incursions good is to not spend until they give us what we want! Ocm admits he's barely hanging in. 1:45:28 - Not a lot of players are above level 56 these days. 1:51:34 - Seems Jaylah shards drop at a 10% rate for swarmadas? Also I have an 85% borg away team chance and I get crits 50/50. So...yeah. And remember...spread the hate!

Trek Talk - Episode 97 - T'Pring vs. T'Pring, SK Fanfiction
Hosts: Techman16, StrangeKirk, Handy, Boomslang Guests: MadamStarGazer (66), vreddy (196) Topics Discussed: 0:24 - Tpring is hot! 2:16 - Who is more conniving, T'Pring or T'Pring? ...what? 3:31 - Handy has a deer problem, and SK has a very suspicious reference to how if every time you go to a house your ass hurts you'll eventually stop going to that house. 7:44 - Sex with T'Pring? Good, or passionless? 11:26 - Aaaaaaaaand, more tentacle porn! Fanfiction is weird. Also, use that 220V outlet or you're doing it wrong. 13:58 - Orville talk! We still like it, though this one was a bit...odd. But he hangs out by the bleachers! 24:15 - What's good in STFC? Nada.  But the SNW crew is definitely for PVE not PVP, and the officers are kind of...odd. 33:30 - The application of Rom on bases. 37:53 - Mining is hard! 41:40 - Don't burn yourself out! 44:08 - Scopely is conflating our desire for something different, with more. They're giving us more stuff to do, but it's all the same boring stuff. 45:08 - Diablo talk? 48:18 - Boredom gets people involved in frivolous and silly things. 51:43 - STFC idea: create open armadas, where any alliance can join them. Also, we still want the "start now" armada button! 55:58 - Back in the day, a Wednesday, people are still asshats about armadas. 59:16 - Make ALB rewards participation based; you get the % that you contribute. 1:04:37 - It's a moot point, here's your consolation prize. 1:05:53 - Let us recycle old blueprints and delete random shit we don't need anymore! 1:07:41 - There used to be G4 Common ships that weren't faction ships, and we miss those, stop forcing factions! 1:09:58 - Also, introduce new factions! Cardassians, Ferengi, etc. 1:11:32 - Boom is going Dominion faction! 1:12:33 - As long as whales spend, Scopely has no incentive to make improvements. And remember...spread the hate!

Ugh, I hate Leslie cheese. 35:52 - Bubba Ray and D-von? What? Professional Wrestling talk??? 45:25 - AnDraste does not want to talk about women in wrestling in the 90's. 47:23 - Moving on to the last Lower Decks arc, which was pretty meh as an arc despite the show being awesome, though the mission dialoge was awesome! 49:13 - If you missed them, you can read through the mission dialogue on stfc.space so check it out! 49:37 - Strange New Worlds trailer, and our hopes that it won't suck (which it doesn't)! 51:07 - Discovery Season 2 start, 7 different lights simultaneously show up... 54:28 - Picard, what is it you desire? The intersection of technology and magic. 58:21 - But is the Borg Queen USB 3.2 compliant? 1:02:55 - If the Borg had only assimilated Riker, he'd have gotten them tentacles in EVERYONE. 1:04:53 - Borg virus protection software. 1:08:31 - Lower Decks episode with the redshirts. 1:11:26 - Difficulties with targeting something small like a planet... 1:12:39 - Orville Season 3 excitement! 1:14:26 - Sex party by Handy's place! 1:16:57 - And now we know where AnDraste likes to put her effort. 1:17:32 - Let's celebrate the genitals of your unborn child!

Hint: The show is DEFINITELY worth watching! 16:02 - Hooray for good Sci-Fi back on TV!!! 19:57 - Why have human pilots?

Trek Talk - Episode 93 - Orville and Pre-Incursion Conflict
Trek Talk - Episode 93 - Orville and Pre-Incursion Conflict
Hosts: Techman16, StrangeKirk, Handy, Boomslang Guests: GrandAdmiralKey, DogsOfWar, WarWizard, PonchoJimmy (34), MadamStarGazer (66) Topics Discussed: 0:00 - What do we eat at the start of the show, and has Boom murdered a woman? Let's just not report felonies here... 1:52 - Orville talk! Relevant subjects and GOOD sci-fi! 7:46 - Orville aging, and retconing, such as with Strange New Worlds. 9:42 - Orville crew vs Strange New Worlds. Orville the crew tends to carry out what is asked, on Strange New Worlds Pike seems to be the guy who knows and leads, and explains things to everyone else. 12:03 - Orville introduces a female dominated culture, and also goes very dark with the origin of the Kaylon's in a callback to just how brutal people can be, and what danger to the oppressors that brutality can represent. Really REALLY dark! 21:18 - Server 34, another war! Dark and Wolf versus NONA, because...who else? And with incursion looming too, for shame! 27:15 - Nobody cares about Server 34 anymore according to StrangeKirk, and he's probably right. ;-) 28:37 - For whatever reason, OlazyeeOne and Burto have a hard-on for NONA, according to Techman. 31:08 - DogsOfWar supposedly has funny ship names. Would love to hear them sometime! ;-) 33:56 - DogsOfWar also doesn't know what's going on with the current Dark and Wolf versus NONA conflict. Techman will tell us what he knows based on his conversation with Incho. 35:28 - WarWizard sheds some light on the conflict, finally, including the Burto vs Parzival piece. 41:25 - Burto was booted from NONA, and then he apparently helped cause this conflict with NONA. Hmmmm... 42:57 - Handy interjects to give his perspective on the drama. 44:08 - How did peace talks go between Handy and Kevin (who TF is Kevin?). 48:13 - Conflict seems to have started when NONA and Dark stopped being allies. 49:02 - How else do you keep the rage if you don't keep fighting?!? Plus, in game hate can be fun and breathe life into you! 55:44 - Right now is the war going to continue, and is it expected to continue through Incursions? 57:07 - Tech feels that permanent hate, even if it's game hate, is exhausting. He's so very, very, very wrong. 59:40 - The actual exhausting part, according to Handy, is trying to resolve the issue with someone. 1:00:55 - Poncho joins to talk about the potential impact conflict could have on Incursion for S34 and what happened from his perspective. 1:05:51 - Do these conflicts mostly come from whale driven issues? 1:06:23 - Also, who the fuck is Burto? 1:11:06 - Ultimately, from NONA's perspective, Burto dry-hitting is what led to the conflict flaring up. 1:13:19 - With regards to the Incursion, StrangeKirk feels the conflict needs to be set aside so that the server can win. 1:17:13 - Server 45 dysfunction is even worse than Server 34's, but Server 34 should be able to bury the hatchet at least during Incursion. 1:22:08 - As much as StrangeKirk dislikes a lot of the game anymore, he's actually looking forward to Incursion! And then the audio cuts out. 1:28:49 - When is the first Incursion? It was Tuesday July 19th for US Servers (July 18th for APAC, July 20th for EU). 1:31:14 - Server 66 had the level cap removed with the incursions update and things have gone hog wild! Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!

Trek Talk with Tech and Kirk - Episode 23 - Discovery S03E09 Review
Techman16 is flying solo tonight for this review; a welcome change to the various storylines that include The Burn, PTSD and future technology.  Taking a visit back into the past with Emperor Phillipa Georgiou and her character progression was very intriguing. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD Terra Firma Part 1 takeaways: - This was the Star Trek version of A Christmas Carol Georgiou is Ebenizer Scrooge,  Prime Burnham is Jacob Marley, entity guarding the transdimension door (Carl): Ghost of Christmas Past and it was a Holiday-themed episode with a snowy planet. - Alternate Universe Interesting how well Discovery tied in the Kelvin Timeline and made it canon, along with the alternative universe we have come to know and understand. - Change in perspective In season 1, Prime Burnham had to play the role of a Terran and was taken aback at the ruthlessness and aggression displayed by Georgiou, but this time Mirror Burnham is the aggressor and the Emperor herself has to hide her emotions. - Finally, Star Trek This episode displayed all the characters we have come to know about in Discovery and it seems as though we finally see a clear chain of command and competent officers doing their jobs well. Also, the character driven story regarding Georgiou was really reminiscent of the Deep Space 9 storytelling model. The acting was on point and it was truly convincing that we were experience another dimension. The emotions of Burnham and the stoic nature of Georgiou really made this episode a must see.
