Re: Canon C,G,S

So everything, including comics, animations, books and technical manuals produced after 2014 is canon? Pretty much, with the already discussed caveats. Not that I think it's a particularly great idea to throw out canon info in mobile games and such, especially because it seems like the developers o...

Re: Canon C,G,S

Yup, but still with the caveat that directors and screenwriters will write and direct what they want, and the books and comics will scramble to wrap their stories around what is filmed. There might be some consideration given to major plot points and facts from the other media, but I wouldn't expect...

Re: Canon C,G,S

Theoretically ALL material released since Disney reset the canon is equal in ranking. Realistically, it's more like movies at the top, everything else below. It's very unlikely that the filmmakers will be beholden to other media, except for maybe at the most extreme level (like not bringing in a cha...

Re: New sexual assault claims against Brett Kavanugh NYT

You know, posting an opinion piece from a well-known conservative site (i.e., will happily distort the truth and outright lie to get the "proper" narrative out) is not as convincing as you seem to think it is. The source does raise questions about the reliability of its fact claims but there are tw...

Re: Clone Wars Continuity Order

The 2D Clone Wars introduced several things that were expanded upon in the 3D series: Obi-Wan wearing battle armor, Anakin getting his eye scar, Asajj Ventress being introduced and her background being touched upon (including receiving her unique lightsabers), and Anakin and Obi-Wan meeting her for ...

Re: Help with a Resume and Cover Letter

The only thing I would worry about when removing actual dates, is that it may come across that you are trying to hide things. Having short employment times is not a great mark on your record, but, in my opinion, looking like you are not being honest is worse. I seriously thought about listing all o...

Re: Help with a Resume and Cover Letter

Also, I completely agree with what you have condensed as advice:
1. Spelling errors. Don't have them.
2. Don't lie.
3. Be consistant in formatting.

Re: Help with a Resume and Cover Letter

Hey, my suggestions are just that. As I said, I'm coming from a certain angle; the career you're in may want it differently. There is no one right way to do a resume, but a million wrong ones, so take everything with a dose of skepticism.

Re: Star Wars Resistence

I've watched it, while not loving it, while acknowledging that it is not aimed at me. I do think the last few episodes of the first season start to move it forward in a similar way to how Clone Wars and Rebels eventually started exploring deeper/more mature themes. The last two episodes overlap with...

Re: The Orville: Season 2

I took the ending differently. I think that she was from the same timeline, and her changing something is a cliff-hanger for next week. I wouldn't be surprised if the next episode is another time-travel tale. In fact it may be something like Yesterday's Enterprise, from TNG, where they will suddenly...

Re: Why Michael?

I remember reading somewhere before the first season premiered that it was going to have an explanation, but they didn't explain it in season one, or so far in season 2, and I think it's gotten dropped by the wayside.

Re: Washington State Legislator Referred to FBI for advocating killing non-Christians.

I'm in eastern Washington, and it's not quite as bad as that. There are a fair amount of racist assholes over here, but I'd say they're more concentrated around Spokane, which is where that guy is from. It's not as bad around the Tri-Cities, or over here in Pullman (which has the added benefit of be...

Re: New CBS deal, Multiple Trek Show Rumors

One benefit of alien characters, the ones that used heavy makeup anyway, is that it's easy enough to hide aging. Michael Dorn still looks pretty good, and there's so much rubber on a Ferengi that you probably wouldn't see much change on Armin Shimerman, for example. Human-norm characters would be m...
