Re: DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

Replacing a missing limb with a robot part IS a form of healing. Re-constructing an entire biological limb is something that (IIRC) only happened once in ST and it took months. A prosthetic limb is likely far easier to work with and who would care anyways if it was just as functional as the origina...

Re: DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

And what example of SW healing do we have?

I cannot recall a single instance or repairing tissue or damaged limbs that DOESN'T involve robot part of heavy scarring.
Heck, half the sith are scarred and ugly with ugly prosthetics.

Re: DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

Okay, first, superman doesn't get his power from sunlight as you or I know it. He gets it from "yellow sun energy", which is not the same thing as yellow light, or he'd be able to power up from a yellow lamp. He gets powered down by "red sun energy", which, again, isn't the same as red light, or yo...

Pike is early ToS era.
That's ancient by Trek standards

Re: DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

Well, there are rumblings. Seems the EU will be toast, so good riddance. Too bad for Thrawn. Everyone seems to like that one. Other than that..I agree All I know is that turbolasers never impressed me or struck me as redicolously powerful as I hear people claim them to be. They come off no stronger...

Re: DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

Sorry, what was different about the Federation and Star Wars medical tech again? Picard had an artificial heart Geordi (as of STFC) had artificial eyes Nog had an artificial leg I don't see any qualitative difference between them and, say, Luke's replacement hand. As for Anakin, his replacement han...

Re: DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

But I will grant you this point: if Darksaber had been canon, the orbital bombardment would have indicated vastly lower yields or a very odd ROE. LucasArts was the one that determines what's canon, and ILM was owned by LucasArts, unless I'm mistaken. Frankly, I'm not sure what's canon anymore... Al...

Re: DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

The fact of the matter is that while they are often coming up with new tricks and applications of technology in the Trek series, it's extremely rare that they repeat the trick or continue applying their technology in that fashion. They're one-offs. Even Voyager, a series where you would think they ...

Re: DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

A laser is not the same as a nuke? Neither is a baseball. Yet launch it speed approaching c in atmosphere and the effect will be even worse. Turns out matter doesn't react well so much energy concetrated in a small space. You need to provide some context before we can discuss that. The question is ...

Re: DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

Really? I don't want to be an ass here, but I can't recall any such "meh" effectivenesses against unshielded targets. When an actual turbolaser hits a target, it generally vaporizes it, and not in a tidy chain reaction kind of way either. Additionally, one can't directly compare the effects of a nu...

Re: DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

The calcs don't create something new where there was nothing before. There's no sorcery behind numerical analysis -- we're simply describing the already visible feats of respective universes using numbers so that what we've already seen could be compared. Indeed. But so much is cherry picking. Ther...

Re: DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

Pretty much. But if you want a short version:
- don't use your shoddy calculations and your cherry-picked examples as absolute proof that your pre-concieved theories are the irrefutable truth.

DISTRUST IN NUMBERS

DISCLAIMER: I an not a SW fan. I am not a Star Trek fan. I hate and love both for different reasons. I think the EU is a sea of s*** with a few good gems. I think TOS is only good as a comedy. VOY, DS9 and ENT suck. TNG is pretty much the only ST series that is OK. I normally stay out of debates. Bu...
