Star Trek and the Navy

Discussion in 'Films, Music, TV & All Things Artsy' started by Val the Gal, Aug 5, 2014.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My second favourite captain singing Heart of Oak.

  2. Can't see the video due to being on dii, but I'm guessing it's Patrick Stewart. He also sung "A British Tar" from HMS Pinafore in Star Trek: Insurection.

    Just as a note- this is not the only connection to the naval services (although not British) Star Trek has- the bridge design of the original USS Enterprise (NCC-1701 for your geeks out there) was once considered for use by the US Navy (USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

    I conclude then that Captain Janeway is your favourite ?

  6. Could also either be Archer, Pike or Sisko. Or whatisface from the new ones.
     
  7. No 9's would be a right bitch cleaning the cannons.
     
  8. At least the OA's will have Photon torpedoes to play with as well as Spearfish.

    I wonder if Photon torpedoes are wire guided?
     
  9. And when the away team/landing party return on board they can clean their own feckin' phasers!
     
  10. Why is Lt Ohura brown?
    Because William Shatner!
     
  11. .................

  12. It would appear not.


    In Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Spock and Dr. McCoy modify a photon torpedo to track the plasma emissions from a cloaked Klingon bird of prey as it attacks the Enterprise-A and theExcelsior, similar to the principal function of the heat-seeking missile.

    These weapons aren't up to much, you have to sit nose to nose with your opponent before you can open fire.
     
  14. Things you never see on the USS Enterprise
    Scrubbing out for skippers rounds
    Watch handovers and a SCC dit book
    No daily orders
    Scran or NAAFI queues
    No galley buzzes eg we're off to Omega 8 instead of Epsilon 9
    Nobody dripping about pay
     
  15. Or the crew walking round with a heavy bag of gash (tinnies) do a deal with another mess?
     
  16. They don't get paid.
    Picard said so in one of the movies.
    Their motivation in the 24th century is for higher ideals or some such shite.

    They've shown bridge watch handovers on more than one occasion - no dit book though, sadly.

    Voyager had an episode dedicated to junior officers who weren't "in the know" which was full of galley buzzes and speculation.

    You never see them nip off for a quick dump though.
     
  17. You never see anyone wearing a red jersey shit themselves when they're nominated as shore party, and just how many security guards went on the 5 year journey as they got wasted practically every episode!
     
  18. More importantly, how many came back?
