>>13428 This is terrible. Strip the essence and just the aesthetics remain. What's the point of making a children's show that has nothing to do with star trek except being "in the same universe". Probably wanting for children to get hooked to star trek "fandom". You can tell there won't be any moral dilemmas, no "can Data have feelings?", no "we respect all lifeforms as equals", no "there are some things that are beyond our comprehension", no ironic or unironic 3d chess, no "cultures are different and multiculturalism is a bitch, but enlightened societies do all that's possible to make it work", etc. Not that Star Trek is perfect in those regards, far from it IMO, but when it tries to do the above it is actually good.
>>13451 >Probably wanting for children to get hooked to star trek "fandom". This is 100% the answer, CBS are desperate to create a franchise they can milk similar to Marvel or Star Wars. So long as they make Star Trek purely for the sake of money instead of trying to portray and explore a better world it will continue to completely miss the mark.
I never ever understood the prime directive Now, back in the 60s when humanity knew they were a bad people I could understand not wanting to destroy other worlds obviously, and even then Kirk broke it in favor of saving lives because he isn't insane, but, nowadays, why would we even humor an idea? Who's to say we weren't engineered by higher lifeforms? Who's to say we aren't being protected by forces much much great than what we could ever hope to control? Who's to say we aren't already being helped in some way to one day finally break free of this world and explore the endless universe? Why would it be okay to let other worlds die and not save them? Why would it be bad to save people from other worlds? What if we decided to not save and help other people from other parts Earth because they couldn't help themselves? What if they even have technically that could be useful for us? What if they chose to remain in their world? What if there's a group of elites anchoring the rest of their kin to their world? What if warmongering psychos are going to genocide the rest of the planet and become a warmongering space race like the Klingons or Cardassians just to terrorize other worlds? Does some rando in some random region of their own world accidentally discovering warp drive all of a sudden make their entire species worthy of interaction and assistance?

>>13808 One of the recurring themes of prime directive episodes (especially in TOS) is that of unintended consequences. While quite often this was partially because they wanted to use gangster or nazi outfits they had left over the fundamental message was that you can't be sure how the society will react to being interfered with if you don't micromanage and you can't be sure that the micromanagers won't take it in a bad direction either. Theres a TOS episode where the Klingons are interfering with a primitive world and giving the tribes they back advanced weaponry so that they will quickly unify and join the Klingon Empire and in the process of defending against it (Kirk could legally violate the prime directive up to the level the Klingons did) Kirk turns the peaceful group he was supporting into a far more warlike group as a result of arming them and he greatly regrets having to do that. Theres a lot of episodes that explore the issues and strengths of the prime directive.

I hear historical ball gowns (victorian era mainly) were pretty comfortable and accomadated many body types, as opposed to the mermaid gown stuff today, might look bourgious, but it also looks nice and is out of fashion, assuming you can find a non-exploitative way to make one, go for it, the world's burning anyways, just don't wear the gown for practical occasions and you'll be fine, also any clothing is unisex iffin you aren't a pussy about it

So my grandma lived in Lithuania back when it was an SSR (She says she was born right after ww2 for reference) and she liked the movies there, from what I can gather they were family friendly affairs similar to the first pirates of the carribean in tone, any comments and maybe recomendations for old soviete media?

>>12405 It's been announced that Cyberpunk 2077 will have an anime will be made in the same universe. Breakdown of Cyberpunk or not, this seems rather neat... as long as they actually do make it in 2022 and don't half-ass it. Its supposed to be called Cyberpunk: Edgerunners and it features a lot of the big-guns in the anime business: Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare) will direct the series along with assistant director Masahiko Otsuka (Gurren Lagann, Promare), creative director Hiromi Wakabayashi (Kill la Kill), character designers Yoh Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia, BNA: Brand New Animal) and Yuto Kaneko (Little Witch Academia), and the adapted screenplay by Yoshiki Usa (SSSS.GRIDMAN, Promare) and Masahiko Otsuka (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare). The original score will be composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series). It honestly sounds pretty based according to the summary: a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner—a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk. I'm looking forward to its release. https://www.cyberpunk.net/en/news/35512/announcing-an-original-anime-series-cyberpunk-edgerunners

>>12405 >The creator https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Pondsmith seems like an ass 1) He's the creator of Cyberpunk 2020 and more of an advisor and one of the creators of 2077 2) How is he an ass? He's no communist, but that's not a requirement for cyberpunk People are just trying to shit on the video-game and the company because "muh racist Poles" despite Witcher being a Polish written and Poland based series and Pondsmith being a literal African-American who was writing out races as gangs as he saw them or wanted to depict. It's literally >You poor minorities! Let me be offended on your behalf! <LOL no Typical liberal virtue signaling, pics related To quote: "McIntosh's tweet (pic 2) overtly misses the point of Cyberpunk. It is supposed to an oversexed dystopian future with guns, drugs, and all sorts of passive advertisements run by corporations taking over everyday lives. It is there as a means to cover the poverty line Night City is infamous for. And nothing covers a shit and depressive life better than sex-appeal, celebrity gossip, and mass shootings."

Debunking a hot take from someone >The Wizarding world lords over Muggles who are sub-human to them, thus Harry Potter is fascist The Wizarding World is not in control of the muggles, they live around them, fool them and hide FROM them, but cannot control them. The opinions of the upper elite of Wizarding kind comes from antiquated views created by the technological and socio-economic gap that magic causes, which makes medieval traditions stay alive so long.

Orwell and his ilk are radlib LARPers who don't understand leftism but have contradictory "ideals" that sometimes coincide with them. Orwell was just a good writer, which is the only reason that he isn't as obvious.

>Mollie disappeared. For some weeks nothing was known of her whereabouts, then the pigeons reported that they had seen her on the other side of Willingdon. She was between the shafts of a smart dogcart painted red and black, which was standing outside a public-house. A fat red-faced man in check breeches and gaiters, who looked like a publican, was stroking her nose and feeding her with sugar. Her coat was newly clipped and she wore a scarlet ribbon round her forelock. She appeared to be enjoying herself, so the pigeons said. None of the animals ever mentioned Mollie again. If any of you've read Animal Farm you'd be familiar with Mollie. She abandoned the Animal Farm to be taken care of by the humans. She says she loves being dressed up in pretty bows and looking pretty for humans. I find morbid amusement in the idea that she's fucking the fat red faced man for sugarcubes and pretty ribbons in her mane.

>>13463 >just be a chad with tons of interests and a defined career path that will make you lots of money bro
>>13755 This is the loser inside talking. Everyone has interests, so lean into them. Everyone can figure out a carreer path and at least attempt to stick to it. If you aren't doing this, then you're just a lazy asshole. Being a socialist doesn't mean you get to stop living in capitalism. Is it a fucked up system? Yes, but you need to make the attempt. You're always going to be a loser if your main plan is to wait for socialism to fix everything. Protip: That shit ain't happening any time soon. So work on yourself and go for what you can. You don't have to make a lot of money, just don't work at McDs for the rest of your life because you didn't want to think about it.
>>13756 >If you aren't doing this, then you're just a lazy asshole You don't know me or my circumstances, so fuck off. My education growing up was fucked for reasons out of my control, so now I'm 21 and have no clue about what to do with myself and i'm just wasting away in community college. And I wasn't even using capitalism as an excuse or whatever, but if we're going this route you really sound more like one of those bullshit self-improvement bronze age fitness narcissists on twitter more than anything.
>>13758 Not the same anon, but if you don't have a clue just pick something mildly interesting with some demand and stick with it. Sooner or later you will get more experience and better conditions. >>13753 At least you get a fresh start and plenty of opportunities to interact with your peers. I didn't usually hang out with classmates outside class or school activities at my high school (I was kind of a newcomer) but at least I could talk and have fun with them. It's probably because of how management treats their employees but my workplace is full of fascist envious burnouts who just want people around them to fail like they did, and for whom any oportunity is good to spew their hateful nonsense.
>>13758 >growing up was fucked for reasons out of my control, so now I'm 21 and have no clue about what to do with myself and i'm just wasting away in community college. Then figure it out. You are in shit circumstances, but the fact that you're going to any college at all means you can get an associates, or other degree. You aren't retarded. >but if we're going this route you really sound more like one of those bullshit self-improvement bronze age fitness narcissists on twitter more than anything. Believe it or not, self-improvement shit actually has something to it. I'm an avid reader of this material, and though I know it isn't a solution to a deeper problem, I don't post on bunkerchan about how nothing can ever possibly get better. This is like incels complaining about showering and going to the gym when they don't shower or go to the gym to begin with. Yeah, it won't fix every issue, but start there.
