    I remember watching Galactica when I was a kid, was damn awesome. Have to find them series.

    Obligatory Topic: Very happy AMD RX 5700 and Ryzen 3700X user here. Debian Testing with kernel 5.4.19-1 does not seem to have any issues. GTA:O goes smooth in maxed settings with vsync enabled.

      I constantly get stacktrace on broken assert with Ryzen 2400g APU, https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/amd/issues/839 it would not be that annoying if fedora didn't spam me through abrt.

        Interesting benchmarks between 5600 and 5700 regardless of the kernel version. 5600 XT is really not that far behind compared to 5700 XT in terms of frame rates. I could see myself going with 5600XT due to less power draw than a 5700 XT, although I won't be playing high-demanding games until the next line of GPUs come out that draw about 150W with ray tracing. Portal 2 and The Talos Principle is more of my style of puzzle games. Well, if there are any puzzle games with visuals that compare to The Talos Principle, that would be cool to play at 4K.

        I currently have a GTX 960 and want to get away from NVIDIA proprietary drivers.

        And as an off-topic note, I love Star Trek: The Next Generation. Each TV show has its own strengths and weakness, but to me, I found the crew members of TNG to be more mature than Voyager and DS9. I mean, the crew members fit together very well along with the ship. Enterprise USS 1701-D and crew members matched them perfectly together. I can't say the same for DS9 and Voyager, as the crew members aren't my type compared to The Next Generation. In my opinion, the atmosphere of the ship is so much better compared to Voyager and DS9.

        And anyone interested in the tour of Enterprise D?

        Okay, enough off-topic chatter for now.

          Sorry for going off-topic here. People here are talking about DS9 and my post got flagged for talking about Star Trek: The Next Generation.

          (Sigh) No wonder why we went too far off-topic. I'm still a legitimate user, though. I'm not trying to spam. The forum approved of my previous post, I edited my post because I went too far off-topic and my post got unapproved by the forum software.

            haha voyager was a bit bumpy first couple of seasons (with really good ones like "S02E13 Prototype" and "S02E23 The Thaw") And we don't speak about "S02E15 Threshold" but even cringy episodes like the dinosaurs evacuating earth and becoming this super advanced race in the Delta quadrant becomes an intelligent and powerful episode on Religion conflicting with Science. Molto bene...sublime to watch.

            I love the Borg stuff and the Doctor, but you can't say episodes like 'Living Witness', 'Warhead', 'Muse' and "Critical Care" aren't quintessential (f**king masterpiece level) Star Trek For me voyager > DS9 fundamentally because it shows the very best of our Federation ideals in a strange new galaxy, trying to get home while following scientific inquiry and being altruistic without being holier-than-thou (say what you will about Janeway lol). That great episode 'Equinox' best shows this, where another captain succumbs to the 'screw our ideals, I'll do anything to get us home' mentality.

            Never got into BSG, it's on my list, I preferred Stargate (the ending to Atlantis still haunts me for how lazy it was)...and then The Ark of Truth's lazy as hell plot to explain away the Ori... man, I miss the good old days of SG1, that was some stellar scifi.

            You guys been watching The Expanse, I hope? That's absolutely fantastic stuff

              How about Discovery? Or the other new series?

                Something about Discovery rubs me the wrong way, although I guess I should watch it start to finish before criticizing. Too many of the characters seemed to be there just to look alien without exploring any of their alien-ness. Anton Chekhov (not Pavel Andreievich) would have had a fit.

                So another vote for Enterprise followed by TNG, and this is from someone who used to run home from school to watch TOS episodes on TV for the first time. It would probably be fair to accuse me of preferring shows that are most like TOS, although I don't think about it that way.

                By the way when we talk about off-topic, is "the real topic" the initial post, Voyager, or Star Trek in general ?

                  DS9 > TNG > Voyager > Enterprise > Discovery (only S1 so far) > TOS for me.

                  I really enjoyed enterprise even though it's only 4th on my list, it just didn't have characters that I found quite as interesting as the top 3 shows did.

                  TOS really hasn't aged well in my opinion, but I'd probably feel differently about it if I grew up when it was new.

                  And Disco just felt wrong to me for the first season, but maybe that's unfair to the show considering how many other trek shows kind of stunk their first seasons.

                    Personally I'm waiting for a fix for the issue attached before I update beyond 5.4, hopefully in an upcoming 5.5 point release so it doesn't take too long.

                    I enjoyed TNG and Voyager equally for different reasons. DS9 started to bore me after a while and I could never get into Enterprise, but maybe I need to give it another go beyond the first few episodes.

                      This, I'm afraid. Same with Picard, so I'm reluctant to continue. Aside from the need to force characters and buzzwords we know 'SPOCK!' 'VULCAN' 'ENGAGE!' into barely tangibles narratives...The plots have some nagging holes in them that either completely flies in the face of 'Star Trek' or they retcon, or they go around in circles. Gene Roddenberry's star trek is star trek and that means a Federation that succeeded in forging a utopia with the other aliens of the galaxy and we still need to figure out this crazy universe we all live in. Yes, there was the odd power struggle or conspirary or alien take over with the higher ups at command, but the focus was scientific exploration and altruism, not war mongering or refusing to help Romulans evacuate their planet because 'they're bad'. That's not startrek. Not even close to their motivations. Any captain would have ferried as many souls as their ship could safely carry and then cry that they wish they could have done more. (And noone would have debated it, because it is OBVIOUSLY the right thing to do). We forgive our enemies and avoid genocide!!!

                      The problem is that any modern star trek is literally written with the mindset of 'I don't like startrek/I never watched it...let's make a movie or tv series about it...what sells?', and they end up making it all flashy and convoluted, one space battle after another which is impressive to watch, but it's not startrek.
