  1. The NX-refit looks nice, but to me, it looked like they were trying too hard to make it like the Constitution-class. I would have liked a less tapering aft and maybe a more consistent shape. Warp cores were still mounted horizontally so all that height in the bow of drive section seems a bit much.
  2. FYI. Season 8, episode 1 Debut date: SUNDAY, APRIL 14 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) Estimated running time: 0:54 Season 8, episode 2 Debut date: SUNDAY, APRIL 21 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) Estimated running time: 0:58 Season 8, episode 3 Debut date: SUNDAY, APRIL 28 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) Estimated running time: 1:22 Season 8, episode 4 Debut date: SUNDAY, MAY 5 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) Estimated running time: 1:18 Season 8, episode 5 Debut date: SUNDAY, MAY 12 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) Estimated running time: 1:20 Season 8, episode 6 Debut date: SUNDAY, MAY 19 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) Estimated running time: 1:20
  3. Well, that was a much better season than Season 1. Would I like to see a Mount-starring Captain Pike series? Hell frakin' YES. But I'm not going to scream and cry bloody murder for it. Too many shows to keep track of at the moment. Thank god some of them are ending.
  4. Agreed. The fact that this is covered in merchandising material (i.e. novels) is where I take offense.
  5. Well..... Ep 4 opening crawl: Ep 7 opening crawl: In retrospective, watching the fall of the Republic to the creation of the Empire from the prequels probably helps when we get to Episode 4. From Episode 6 to 7, we don't see the attempted reformation of the Republic and the rise of the First Order, which probably doesn't help. This is probably where the EU...Legends handled this better with the New Republic and the Remnants of the Empire because the Remnants didn't go and suddenly change their name. They were still the "Galactic Empire".
  6. Well, it doesn’t matter now since they threw that stuff into the non-canon black hole that is now called “Legends”. Bringing back Palpatine NOW in the narrative feels like cheap fan-wanking. Having him back in any form other than a Holocron recording just feels
  7. Abrams expected the next directors to answer his stupid mystery box. He's done the same thing with his shows. "Here's my idea, now you flesh it out." WTF arshole???? Why doesn't he follow it through? He wasn't even planning on coming back to Episode 9 until Episode 8 got flak. I'm kinda agreeing with the talking head-&-torso video guy. Having Palpatine come back feels like a bad idea. But he came back as a clone in the EU. But he was a clone. I don't remember the story on that but the clone had to be taught that he was a evil prick. The Jedi learned to let go and die, but retain their consciousness. They became immortal. Being a clone means Palpatine couldn't retain his consciousness. But anyways, bringing back Palpatine now just ruins the last 2 movies. Snoak had no reason to be there then. And it cheapens his death in Episode 6. JJ said there was always plan to bring him back but they couldn’t find a story to do it. BS. If Rian hadn’t killed off Snoak, Palpatine would stay dead. And so, here we are. While we’re at it, let’s bring back Yoda, Luke, and Obi-wan to make sure Palpatine stays dead this time.
  8. So we're getting a playable Kanan Jarrus-type character from Star Wars: Rebels.
  9. Who said anything about a purple lightsaber. I'm talking about building one's OWN lightsaber. Luke built his own. EVERY FREAKIN' Jedi built their own sabers. Meanwhile Rey is rockin that same hilt for the past 3 movies. Even after she broke it. Could have taking the scraps and built a brand new personal saber....
  10. Meh. More JJ fan-wanking nostalgia crap. What do I mean by that? Ian McDiarmid premiered in Episode 6. Now he's "appearing" in this trilogy's 3rd episode. How convenient... I thought "Let the past die." So is Palps making a comeback? 4th Quarter conversion (yes, I threw in a Robot Chicken reference)? And Lando is back and flying the Falcon. Also convenient.... Is Kylo repairing his helmet supposed to be the allegory of JJ trying to repair Rian's mess? Rey rebuilt the lightsaber. *sigh* Still can't build herself her OWN lightsaber.
