3 out of 12 from Discovery :facepalm:


Some truly bizarre choices there. Apart from Spock, none of the other 5 are the supporting characters I would have chosen. And one of the Captain's is a genocidal murderer. 


The additional stamps are no better:







They've just tried to include as many british actors as possible I think.

DS9 really holds up on a rewatch doesn't it. Shame there are no HD remasters (maybe some day, I know).


When I watch DS9 I'm always impressed by the dialogue. Trek is many things but for the most part it's not West Wing, it's plot first and exciting dialogue second. 


I really think the DS9 writers. Had the plot but also had a bit more quality on the dialogue front as well.

I've been watching a few next generation episodes lately and the quality of some of them really make Discovery / Picard look even worse in comparison. Latest was Relics with Scottys return, really lovely stuff.

Yeah that's a good one. "But how long will it really take you?" ... "an hour!" :lol:

I’ve ordered the stamps even though they’re bloody odd choices, seems like they’ve tried to include as many British main cast as possible.  I am confused why Montgomery Scott is included as a British actor on the extras :lol: 


Anyway, got a set for my dad for Christmas too, he’ll really love it, even though they’re random af :)

Just flicking through Netflix for something to watch & noticed the little clip of action they play to advertise TNG is from 'Code of Honour', which is simultaneously both the most racist and sexist episode of Trek ever made. :doh: 


Might need to rethink that one Netflix.:lol:

I wondered if those previews were picked by an algorithm or something, as you get some really random stuff showing up sometimes. I ended up just turning the previews off.


The images certainly are so no reason the videos aren't too.


For example, if you watch a lot of POC-led shows, it'll show you cover art for other shows but focus on the POC in those shows even if they're not the stars.

So basically, it's showing you sexist and racist stuff if you're sexist and racist.
