Default T10: List #112

Back in 2004, I wrote one of my favourite top 10 lists: The Top 10 Differences Between Voyager and Season 3 of Enterprise. It had a bit of a gimmick to it. I don't generally reuse my gimmicks, but I've been inspired to do a spiritual sequel to this one -- and 18 years seems like enough breathing room between them, no?

This is for Wowbagger's birthday, and it'll make the most sense to him. It's silly, it's self-indulgent, it's a little mean. And it has spoilers for all of DSC and PIC to date, so be warned. It's The Top 10 Reasons to Watch Post-2016 Star Trek!

(If the bit about Wowbagger didn't give away what this list is really up to, follow the advice of the disclaimer...)

MY BODY IS READY

SHOW ME THE CONTEXT

*reads it*

Awwwww! This is so sweet! Thank you! What a lovely birthday treat!

*several minutes later*

I was like "oh man the one time I was ready for a context joke and it wasn't. Stand down to Green Alert."

And then I saw Disclaimer One and followed it and that was an EVEN SWEETER birthday present.

And then -- AND THEN -- I saw Disclaimer Two.

Your reactions are worth it every time.

(Explanation for everyone else: I have a weird recurring prank on Wowbagger where I hit him unexpectedly with the pretentious DSC title "Context is For Kings", usually with some kind of elaborate setup. It's like a much wordier circle game. It's not typically a birthday thing -- but in this case I saw an opportunity I just had to take.)

That list is more depressing than funny.

Gotta laugh or we'd cry! But it should help at least a little to know that Excelsior is out there actually delivering all this stuff.
