This Week With The Superheroes: 1/29/2016

This Week I Go Over:
The announcement of Justice League Action, a new animated series coming to the Cartoon Network
Thoughts On New Episodes Of Supergirl, Flash, Agent Carter, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and The X-Files!

Additional Thoughts:

Man I really got hung up on the time travel stuff with Flash... anyway, the cliff hanger for this week's Supergirl and the title for this Monday's episode basically means we'll be seeing Bizarro... and I don't recall their being a Supergirl version of the character before where everything is opposite, because it's a 'mirror image', so things would be reverse.

I just hope they are not going the 'evil twin' route with this

Also big shout out to an old buddy of mine, Joel Carson, for posting the news about Justice League Action!

Lets Play Star Trek Online Time and Tide

Thanks to a foul up on my part, I didn't play this mission until very late last night (or very early this morning

POST MISSION THOUGHTS: This was a pretty fun mission, taking the USS Radical Dreamer forward in time to when the Temporal Accords are signed, while also dealing with the fallout of events from the Iconian war and revisiting the Temporal Cold war that was heavily featured on 'Star Trek Enterprise'. Now I played this mission at about 2:30 AM (Eastern Time), but I do recall mentioning that the hall where the Accords to be signed looked very much like that of where the Federation Charter was signed in 'These are the Voyages...'

The mission itself is very 'Star Trek' like in its pacing, slow build up, interacting with various people in the future (was nice to see the Borg there... liberated ones I mean). The action was a nice mixed of ground and space combat... though this raises a question:

My ship and crew are from the year 2410... how can it hold up against ships that should be 500 years more advance? Though if we are going by Star Trek logic... the more advance a ship is, the crappier are its shields.

Lets Play Star Trek Online: Revelations Verse 7 of 9

Yes this Lets Play's title is of course a pun on the Book of Revelations...

Anyway, this mission sees of course the debut of the 'big bad' for the next several major missions, the Vaadwaur, or as I like to call them the Cardassians long lost cousins... and I'm not kidding, there are striking similarities between the two Star Trek races, with neck ridges and a snake-like appearance. They made two appearances on Star Trek Voyager, and were basically 'Rip Van Winkle', they were in suspended animation, and were basically out of date technology wise...

However in this mission, they kick all sorts of booty and are a very dangerous foe, easily dispatching Voth ships and causing havoc for another set of aliens that debute on Voyager, The Turai.

Of course, no one cares about that, it's Seven of Nine... and boy has my views changed on this character over the years. Don't get me wrong I like the character a lot, she's visually stunning... and for better or, in often the case worse, Seven was the reason why Voyager wasn't cancelled. Not to mention, Seven is often used as exhibit A as to why Captain Janeway not only was a terrible commander, but really a horrible human being in general.

So that said, let's get to the mission.
