Live From The Basement: Star Trek Online (Stardate 112716.3)

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

It's back to Star Trek Online, and we're spending the day on New Romulus, for all the stuff that takes place on that planet is now apart of the Star Trek Online story.



QUICK NOTES I'm not sure exactly when all the missions on New Romulus became playable fully within the context of doing missions in order, but it is quite welcome, as it's stuff that should be done before Sphere of InfluenceAt the same time, I think every mission on Nurkara Prime needs to be adjusted by the developers to have that content featured as storylines within in the game, because there are things referenced here (in the Caves in particular) that acts as a call back to missions at Nurkara. Basically what I'm saying is that the Tholians need their own story-arc for players to play before New Romulus! SCREENSHOTS










The Imitation Game (Basement Matinee)

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

Instead of From The Vault, I'm doing another Basement Matinee as I sat down and watched the 2014 film The Imitation Game starring Benedict Cumberbatch & Keira Knightley




QUICK NOTES If one watches enough of Cumberbatch's work, one notices that he tends to be drawn to roles where the characters have an aloofness and arrogance about them (such as Sherlock, Doctor Strange)This is the first film since 2008's The Dutchess where I really liked Keira Knightley's performance.The framing device of using Turing's 1951 arrest and conviction for gross indecency is genius, showing the triumph of his work and his downfall because of the law of the time
