Come to Quark’s, Quark’s is Fun!

General off-topic chat for the crew of startrek.website. Trek-adjacent discussions, other sci-fi television, navigating the Fediverse, server meta (within reason), selling expired cases of Yamok sauce, it’s all fair game.

Rest in peace. Isn’t he a time traveler, though? I thought Starfleet Intelligence would have resolved this by now.

I added it to my watch list because Robert Duncan McNeill is an executive producer, and finally started on it yesterday. Definitely enjoying it so far.

I'm only partway through the first season, but it's basically "What if ET was kind of a jerk?" (or possibly "What if Dr. House was an alien?") If you've seen it, no spoilers please, but curious if anyone else has watched it and their thoughts on it.

Like many other Lemmy instances, we turned one this week! If you enjoy the Voyager app experience but prefer to only login locally (not that there's any reason whatsoever to distrust vger.app) or not log in at all, we now have an option for you!

  • A friendly reminder that we also have mlem ("old reddit") fronted installed too for those that prefer browsing in a familiar interface on desktop.

  • We do plan on updating to Lemmy 0.19.4 sometime this month so keep an eye out for that!

  • If you've noticed the site hitching lately it's because we were reaching our storage limit (again, oops) so we purchased significantly more storage that appears to be helping.

Big nuqneH to our Patreon supporters for keeping our little corner of the Fediverse on the air a whole year and also allowing us to add features like these frontends and wiki (editing is open to all!) If you'd like to pitch in we have just one plan and it's only $4.

I'm not familiar with Keleops, but it's hard to imagine Gizmodo being worse off than it had been under the previous ownership.

The researchers did indeed discover a warp drive solution: a method of manipulating space so that travelers can move without accelerating. There is no such thing as a free lunch, however, and the physicality of this warp drive does come with a major caveat: the vessel and passengers can never travel faster than light. Also disappointing: the fact that the researchers behind the new work don't seem to bother with figuring out what configurations of matter would allow the warping to happen.

We've been interested in hosting communities that aren't exactly Star Trek, but also make a certain kind of sense for this instance for a while. - Quark's was the first step, and now we've decided to pull the trigger on [email protected] - with the new season up and running, this seems like as good a time as any. Whovians new and old alike are welcome to stop by!

This thead is a trial balloon to gauge whether there's interest in having ongoing "Doctor Who" discussion threads, or perhaps a local community.

I'm just curious...is there any interest in discussing DW episodes in a startrek.website community?
