I'll go against the grain. Janeway was right. She corrected a horrible accident that killed two people while creating another.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 weeks ago

I agree with what she did, but not how she did it. It was needlessly cruel.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 weeks ago

I guess we know how Janeway would respond to the trolly problem, then.

I killed all of them ahead of time

Fuck, it caught me by surprise and I couldn't stop laughing and snorting for so long my partner came over to check if I was ok.

Currently rewatching ds9, with all the feels for tuvix, it's like the writers wanted higher stakes odo-kurzon

Edit: same director. Different writers. One year difference (June to May)

There's the right way, the wrong away, and the Janeway.

I mean....once they separated the patterns in the buffer they could have spun out neelix, tuvok and then tuvix too right?

[-] [email protected] -1 points 2 weeks ago

They never had the time. The orchids merged both of their patterns together into a singular pattern that was materialized. Patterns aren't saved after they're beamed to their destination. Cloning also wasn't viable. That could only happen in very particular circumstances that they wouldn't likely have been able to recreate. Even if they did it still ends up with a "Do I kill this one being to split back into two?", you've just got two Tuvixs to choose from.

The conditions are actually very easy to recreate, if you watch Lower Decks.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 weeks ago

In that case I'll leave you to your streaming services

[-] [email protected] 0 points 2 weeks ago

I do watch Lower Decks and that is a pretty ridiculously unfair comparison considering Boimler's duplication wasn't a preplanned event and the Tuvix episode happened in Federation space with access to new knowledge in the years that have passed.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 weeks ago

Oh, I thought you meant the merger was hard to duplicate, because they were doing those left & right on the Voyager episode of Lower Decks.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 weeks ago

tell it to thomas riker and william boimler

[-] [email protected] -1 points 2 weeks ago

Sure. Which they would understand as both were created by sheer circumstance and accident in freak events, not a pre-planned event. I mean I'd also need to break temporal physics to go into the future, from Tuvix and Janeways perspective, to talk to Boimler considering that happened many years later.

/c/TenFoward: Your home-away-from-home for all things Star Trek!

Re-route power to the shields, emit a tachyon pulse through the deflector, and post all the nonsense you want. Within reason of course.

~ 1. No bigotry. This is a Star Trek community. Hating someone off of their race, culture, creed, sexuality, or identity is not remotely acceptable. Mistakes can happen but do your best to respect others.

~ 2. Keep it civil. Disagreements will happen both on lore and preferences. That's okay! Just don't let it make you forget that the person you are talking to is also a person.

~ 3. Use spoiler tags. This applies to any episodes that have dropped within 3 months prior of your posting. After that it's free game.

~ 4. Keep it Trek related. This one is kind of a gimme but keep as on topic as possible.

~ 5. Keep posts to a limit. We all love Star Trek stuff but 3-4 posts in an hour is plenty enough.

~ 6. Try to not repost. Mistakes happen, we get it! But try to not repost anything from within the past 1-2 months.

~ 7. No General AI Art. Posts of simple AI art do not 'inspire jamaharon' and fuck over our artist friends.

Fun will now commence.
