We're not supposed to agree with the Prime Directive, at least not in TOS by /u/adamkotsko
The Romulans see themselves in humanity, but also their greatest fear come true. Their ethos is better explained by historic trauma than a desire to conquer. (self.DaystromInstitute) by /u/Ut_prosim
interesting thread on r/DaystromInstitute about the nature of Federation on-board computers and if they are sentient or not
The Dyson Sphere Was Likely Once a Binary Star System With Another Star About the Mass of the Sun (self.DaystromInstitute) by /u/VigodaLives
ah a writeup about one of my favourite episodes from TNG, I really do wish the Dyson sphere in that episode was brought up again
Damar, the real Dukat anti-thesis by /u/MartyAndRick (self.DaystromInstitute)

Federation Day Lecture: Quantum Slipstream 101 (self.DaystromInstitute) by /u/misterme987
Do federation citizens (or those under its jurisdiction) have a right to private thoughts? (self.DaystromInstitute)
The Borg don't respond to intruders because they don't even know they're there until they cause trouble by /u/adamkotsko (self.DaystromInstitute)
What's in the Beta Quadrant? (self.DaystromInstitute)
One of our favorite ST: The Next Generation episodes aired 31 years ago
Seriously, though -- what were the seven simultaneous signals? (self.DaystromInstitute)
"Gene Rodenberry's vision" is often brought up as an argument on r/DaystromInstitute about ST: Discovery and honestly..
I don't think Rodenberry's vision much relevance to me in what I want to see from a Star Trek show *now*
sure we need to keep it in mind but deviations from it are as much part of Star Trek as the vision itself
Discovery S2 season finale thoughts
wow okay that was quite the season finale
the first bit of the episode got my heart racing, those shots and the way they progressed the scenes, well done
the Burnham and Spock interactions in this one were top notch, "I will look for you in the stars" got me good 😢
gotta admit the Leland screaming scene was cathartic for me as it was for Georgiou
Discovery S02E10 thoughts
holy shit this episode
so much happened
Burnham is the Red Angel but not actually? its her mom?
Leland got killed by some evil AI from the future??
that scene with Georgiou, Stamets and Culber???
Burnham's pardon is a tacit admission the admiralty is to blame for the Battle of the Binary Stars (self.DaystromInstitute) by /u/adamkotsko
