True & Honest Fan
He's like those NU-Trek fans who only watch Measure of a Man and think they're 200 IQ, only hes doing that and somehow watching the show
As someone who is into Trek I can tell you the Nu-Trek wave that came with Discovery and Picard mixed with Twittertards making it seem like Star Trek is some utopia (which past TNG aint true) has fucked up what the show used to be, a nerdy ass show, made for stupidly nerdy people
I saw a snippet of a middle-aged dyke in a jumpsuit bellowing out idiocies to the crew (the famous technobabble) and that was enough for me to write off the show as a D&D cartoon for people too embarassed to admit liking elves and magic.As someone who is into Trek I can tell you the Nu-Trek wave that came with Discovery and Picard mixed with Twittertards making it seem like Star Trek is some utopia (which past TNG aint true) has fucked up what the show used to be, a nerdy ass show, made for stupidly nerdy people
The 'best' VOY episodes all seem to be taking the piss out of Trek in some way. It's almost a sitcom.Probably not. Which really isn't a bad thing.
He's always been a fan of Star Trek but I think only OS and TNG. He's talked about Voyager before and I don't recall him liking it.He's like those NU-Trek fans who only watch Measure of a Man and think they're 200 IQ, only hes doing that and somehow watching the show
Sorry to powerlevel, but that's kind of the point of the characters, the show delves pretty deeply into Italian-American identity, and the show plays it pretty good at playing the middle between liking and disliking almost all the charactersThat's basically how I felt watching The Sopranos, if you substitute technobabble with butchered Italian and jumpsuits with guys who get winded just lifting their blubber to take a leak.
Not every human was like though. Many humans ran their own companies to actually make a profit and belonged to non-Federation organizations. Even the Federation needed a way to pay such organizations. Many of which were the backbone of their colonization efforts.Spoony himself is an argument against Star Trek, or at least Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future.
The Federation during TNG is a sort of eudaemoniac society; resources are plentiful so citizens have the freedom to largely do what they want, learn what they want, and better themselves. If you want to head to the stars, great, join Starfleet; if you prefer to be an engineer, scientist, artist, or whatever, go ahead, because you won't starve while you figure things and get educated. Picard wanted to be a captain, his brother wanted to be a winemaker, and both of these things are fine, get to it. The idea is, in an egalitarian soft-socialist society, people will become the best versions of themselves because they need not be held back by the bullshit soul-killing jobs most of us deal with right now.
And Spoony disproves it! Here's a guy with all his essential needs covered--he's been living rent free for over a year now, with a monthly patreon stipend from the paypigs--and all he does is mope around, pine for the girls and dremels of old, and neglect his dog. Way to go dipshit
The closest comparison is Reg Barclay, who fled into the holodeck to escape reality. It got where he had to seek counseling for addiction.Not every human was like that though.
I rather liked Barclay's character. He felt more human than most of the human characters. Part of that could be because the character was a hypochondrac which I think gave more for the actor to play around with with his limited appearances. Unlike Spoony though, he was integral to the plot of any episode he was on, not a side character or an extra.The closest comparison is Reg Barclay, who fled into the holodeck to escape reality.

I don't think Noah's lifestyle would fly there, or even in Stalinist Russia. He'd be shipped off to the archipelago. Rightly, I might add.
Spoony is a unique case. A content-free content creator, unlimited time, and zero shame.
