I made this thread for people who want to talk about geeky things; all are welcome!
So, I believe we were on the subject of Star Wars and how underrated the fight scenes in Star Wars: The Clone Wars were? In my opinion, I felt like the lightsaber duels were far too slow-paced; maybe I'm just picky.
I thought this was a thread to discuss which one is better; Star Trek or Star Wars (hint; the initials of the right answer are ST).
Best. Game. Ever.Speaking of space. Has anyone tried playing Kerbal Space Program? It really does a great job in teaching how mass vs available velocity really works. Plus it teaches orbital dynamics and hohmann transfers in a really fun way- ie. explosions. I've played it through several times, and love their career & sandbox modes.
I have to agree with you about clone wars. While there were definitely some episodes that just plain sucked, there were also some really amazing arcs. In particular I remember sync watching the one where they're fighting in the jungle with an internet friend and both of us saying something to the effect of "holy shit this is supposed to be a kids show???". We also came to the conclusion that obi-wan is the most incompetent jedi, and the jedi council just didn't want to hurt his feelings by telling himYou are undoubtedly picky, but that's your prerogative!
I thought they tended to have more variety, interest and drama than the ones in the movies!
Lol how can someone being trapped in a holodeck be anywhere near as good as someone wielding a lightsaber... First thing you would do if you were in charge of a starfleet ship is tear that junk out before it went haywire, can't see anyone saying the same thing about tearing apart a lightsaber!
As for transporters, is no one else disturbed about being atomised and then a copy of you recreated somewhere else often imperfectly and sometimes even with duplication.
The original Star Trek was somewhat ground breaking, but the Gorn? I think Star Wars was much better. Of course, Ewoks? So maybe not? As for scary movies, I love "Killer Clowns from Outer Space". Better than Citizen Kane.
Nah, the real issue is trying to compare between universes with completely different rulesets, and capabilities that were wildly inconsistent due to being changed on a whim because the writers needed something to happen a certain way. Jedi can block lasers all day while playing chess with one hand and juggling with the other... up until the point where there needs to be some dramatic tension. Borg can adapt on the fly to repel impacts from high power energy weapons... but somehow never get the hang of not being shredded by melee weapons when a writer wants to show how badass Warf is. I haven't followed warhammer particularly much, but iirc that universe has a bad habit of pulling forgotten superweapons out its ass.The issue though, is the sheer scale, we're talking a billion human planets loaded with xenophobia, each with a fleet, with each ship having the capability of the death star.
