BrickVoid: I wonder if these Tajarans have ever seen an enemy ship fall apart and blow up before they even get to lock targets onto it? This should be interesting! :D

BrickVoid: I like it when the overconfident enemy is on the back foot, reconsidering their previous statement! :D

Oldarmourer: Ahh...the Picard maneuver, a classic..still taught in third year Command School...and first year Helmsman School

BrickVoid: They warped right next to one of the Tajaran ships, if I'm not mistaken! Or at least it looks that way! :D A very well done dropping out of warp shot! :D

Swiftbow: Light hours/days/years are a good measure of space, but they're within less than a light hour at this distance, so it makes sense to use a smaller unit of measure.
12/29/20 06:23 PM
Swiftbow: Different units are used for different distances. An AU is quite huge, and was only ever used in Star Trek during the Motion Picture. AUs are extremely arbitrary units of measure. In this case, Dale would have had to say 5.38 AUs (or thereabouts), which would be fairly meaningless to the reader without looking it up.

BrickVoid: As an example, the time it takes for radio waves to reach the Voyager space probes was expressed as taking "19 light-hours", not as a mileage.
12/29/20 12:42 PM
BrickVoid: Shouldn't distances be expressed in terms of astronomical units, or AU? With space there is no sure way to measure units that depend on a road or surface to reference them. I'm curious as to why you chose "miles" instead of proper astronomical measuring conventions?

Swiftbow: As I recall, Picard did it accidentally, mostly because he'd heard the other officers saying it. They really did treat Barclay like hell in that episode.
12/21/20 11:59 PM
BrickVoid: In the wikipedia article, they say that Captain Picard mispronounces his name. Very interesting.
12/19/20 12:24 AM
Swiftbow: lol, now that is true. Well, maybe they DID make fun of it, then, but in a scene we didn't see ;)

Pyradonis: You mean the TNG crew who called Lt. Barclay "Broccoli"? :P
12/14/20 11:23 PM
Swiftbow: As to the name, I hope the silliness of it will be mitigated by the wisecracks our stalwart crew will surely make. (The TNG crew would never make fun of the name some aliens gave their own planet.)

BrickVoid: Looking at the transcript, for Episode 2, there's apparently a "Panel 9" although it's competely blank! :-P
12/14/20 12:27 PM
BrickVoid: I think it's actually kinda neat! Most people out there name planets with boring scientific or historical or whatever names. This name is unique and it fits perfectly! :D
12/14/20 04:55 AM
Pyradonis: Sorry guys, but while I somewhat understand the reason behind it, with the tone you have set for your comic, the name "Spling Splang Sploogie" sticks out like a dozen sore thumbs...

BrickVoid: I believe they suddenly decided to focus on her cleavage, and she turned from an intelligent and useful counselor into a pretty decoration that had no brains. Typical male attitude towards women in that era, I would guess.

BrickVoid: Deanna Troi - to give her name the correct spelling; there is an 'i' not 'y' in her name - mostly wore the medical officer's blue uniform with black across the top of the front of the uniform and shoulders. She did at one time wear some uniforms with cleavage. See the following website for more information: http://www.thegeektwins.com/2014/06/7-bizarre-facts-about-deanna-trois.html
12/13/20 03:12 PM
Swiftbow: She kind of wore purple in the show, but therapy/counseling is generally considered a medical field.

BlackRing57: And blue is sience, medical, and what else? I guess Troy is medical?
