In-reply-to » @prologic idk, where I work everyone wants to use PowerPoint and they want my slide decks. If you don't have that problem, good!

Yeah I totally understand even if I don’t agree with it and find it insanely stupid that we continue to use these crappy ass proprietary tools 🤦‍♂️

In-reply-to » @ocdtrekkie Something that we are always fighting is when assets are shared from vendor to vendor, making sure they look the same, and sometimes when we go from a "damaged" version to a "clean" one between seasons things drift. Seven and Raffi just had it repainted.

@virtualbri@mastodon.online Yeah, I was thinking less about the cloak angle specifically as Geordi’s statement all the Starfleet ships are linked and call out to each other. It made it sound like a non-Starfleet ship (or an older one even) would be an obvious choice.

In-reply-to » @virtualbri Speaking of new hero models, I am also surprised La Sirena wasn't used here for similar reasons... I think it was noted it has a new texture this season, even though it apparently never flies? ...Yet, perhaps?

In-reply-to » @ocdtrekkie Yeah, as a peek behind the curtain, not only new sets which are hugely expensive but a new hero Bounty CGI model, which the Museum version definitely is not for what we do need to do with it.

In-reply-to » @virtualbri I still think if all the Starfleet ships are networked (because they forgot about the incident in Prodigy already, apparently), it would make far more sense to abandon the Titan-A and to have used the Bounty itself to rescue the away team.

In-reply-to » It may have been "Superior Klingon Technology", but it was also easier to remove the cloaking device from the Bounty than the Defiant. :)

In-reply-to » @georgetakei Seeing as the shooter was trans, is this a failure of gun control or a failure of mental health support? And I am guessing this is the part where all discussion on this topic dies, as the shooter doesn't fit the demographic usually associated with shootings; although, perhaps not as true as it was with the mass shootings of late.

@connorabruce@mastodon.social@georgetakei@universeodon.com I mean, obviously the Republicans’ attack on trans rights and refusal to provide gender-affirming care definitely can cause a mental health crisis, but a single incident is not much to draw a position from.
