Transplanted 200 years in the future, juvenile delinquent and technical genius Jankom Pog is the best Starfleet Engineer.

Also, Jason Mantzoukas does the best portrayal of a Tellerite. His wit, cadence, and attitude are amazing.

Extraneous Movies featuring Star Trek Cast Members

Yesterday I watched a YouTube video which turned me on to the movie “Night of the Comet”, which is a super slow-burn 80’s zombie chick flick. I immediately honed in on the presence of Robert Beltran, and it enhanced the entire viewing experience. (Currently free on YouTube, btw)

Just now, I was looking for something to watch on Amazon and it recommended me a film called “Wagons East” starring John Candy and Richard Lewis. While watching the trailer I noticed the cast includes Robert Picardo and Ethan Phillips, so obviously I plan to watch it as soon as possible.

I was wondering if anyone has any good film recommendations featuring Star Trek cast members.

Some others that come to mind for myself are:

Total Recall (1990) - Features Robert Picardo Independence Day - Features Brent Spiner Stand By Me - Features Will Wheaton X-Men Movies - Patrick Stewart (obviously) Edit: Oh yea, and “From Beyond” or “The Reanimator” starring Jeffrey Combs.

Got any other good deep-cut recommendations?

Anyone here who knows sewing and could comment on this?

I never thought about it, but it's probably pretty good for cosplayers when there are instructions like these available :)

Major Kira is the Worst Character in Star Trek, and Here's Why

Hey everyone,

I've been watching Deep Space Nine and I've got to say, Major Kira Nerys is hands down the worst character to ever grace Star Trek. Where do I even begin?

Firstly, after seven seasons, Kira has zero character development. She's stagnant, constantly spewing sanctimonious nonsense about Bajoran culture and maintaining favor with the Bajorans—who let's face it, couldn't threaten a tribble technologically. Nana Visitor's acting doesn't help; she either overacts to the point of cringe or delivers her lines with all the subtlety of a brick to the face.

Kira's role on the station becomes increasingly irrelevant as the show progresses. She's supposed to be this military know-it-all, yet they bring in Worf to fulfill that role because apparently, Kira couldn't cut it. And let's not forget her obsession with Gul Dukat and her mom, like some soap opera gone wrong.

What really grinds my gears is how DS9 dives into these absurd Prophet arcs, and Kira is just there to remind us how ridiculous it all is. She rushes to judgment without all the facts and always thinks she's morally superior, even when she's dead wrong. Her constant bickering and inability to see beyond her own biases make her insufferable.

And don't get me started on Mirror Kira. Nana Visitor's portrayal of her evil counterpart is so obnoxious it makes my skin crawl. Every mirror episode is ruined because of her over-the-top performance. It's like she misunderstood "bad" as "unbearably arrogant and annoying."

Overall, Major Kira drags down DS9 with her one-dimensional character, cringe-worthy acting, and annoying moralizing. I can't wait to finish the series and delete every mirror episode just to spare myself from her unbearable presence.

What are your thoughts? Am I alone in thinking Kira is a disaster for DS9?
