To be more specific about a point in today's update, the two episodes I loved in this first season were numbers 6 and 10. 6 was ripped off wholesale from Ursula K. Le Guin's "The Ones Who Walk Away...

5MSNW: Five-Minute "Strange New Worlds"

Ready for something that hasn't happened since 2004? I'm finally posting a Trek fiver during the season it's from! (Albeit only just.)

<i>Strange New Worlds</i> is a strange new show. It does the...

One of the harsh lessons of the last few years is that Paramount is not messing around with their Trek announcements. They can announce something completely ridiculous like a Rick and Morty-style...

Oh man, I could really have done without ever knowing that existed. A sequel with that name -- hell, a sequel at all -- is the kind of nonsense I would throw into a TJI.

I vote BSG. Your threads come from a perspective of knowing a lot about the show in question -- it would be interesting to see how the exact opposite scenario turns out.

I think Marc was going for a little dramatic irony. With those particular shapes, the Argolis Cluster was screaming "upcoming Borg" as loud as it was able.

Nicely done! That is indeed the correct interpretation: if you play each line like a separate Wordle game, it spells out a message. Unfortunately, I found it such a pain to write in five-letter words...

FINALLY SOMEONE WONDERS

Anagram no, but they do mean something! More on that shortly. (I've been procrastinating with the followup post in the slim hope of someone noticing...)

Typical.

You spend 22 years toiling away in obscurity. Even at your peak, your audience is pretty small. But that's okay, you tell yourself, because you have a <i>mission</i>. You're doing...

Five-Minute Pi

As you know, I'm a mathematician, so you'd probably expect me to like Pi Day. And I do. But I have also <i>dreaded</i> Pi Day every year since something like 2008, and not just because being a...

Five-Second Picard S1

So as you've seen, I seem to have finally found my groove for Discovery (more on that soon). But that's not the only extremely dubious live-action Trek show out there! Star Trek: Picard just began...

Yes, you ARE looking at the fourth 5MV update this month! Let's send the year off with one more DSC fiver. Why another one so soon? Well, I needed it for an elaborate prank on Wowbagger (don't ask,...

T10: The 5MV Grey Cup

This is a silly update, but it's one I've had in mind for a loooong time. I think I first got the idea about six years ago. Here in Canada, our version of the Super Bowl is called the Grey Cup. Why...
