I bet it's the same reason people from France speak English, just with French accents. The majority of English-speaking audiences don't want to read subtitles. Having actors speak English, but with accents, is a trope that filmmakers developed to simplify dealing with other languages. (One fun example of this is Sean Connery's character in "The Hunt for Red ...

First of all the idea that time is different for wormhole-beings makes some sense: modern physics theoretically allows wormholes to connect different places in space-time, so one end can be in the past, one in the future. Now, here's my interpretation: The wormhole-beings dont know that they didn't know. They have actually a worse perception of time than we ...

My impression was that Marcos 12 was a well-known planet with a high level of civilization, and the "millions of friends" were the children there. The Gorgan wanted to bring the children of Marcos 12 under its influence, like it did on Triacus.

Space Seed was supposed to be a bottle episode. As few of the regular cast was to be used as possible. Since the Enterprise was on a 5 year journey, we would presume the ship didn't run back to HQ and drop everyone else off; rather only those few regulars were shown as being instrumental to that particular script. In this case, only Kirk, McCoy, Spock, and ...

As this review by the A.V. Club says: ... this alien creature is called a Mellitus that can possess people and lives off of fear. It's been traveling the galaxy on a killing spree for centuries, and it landed on Argelius because everybody was so happy, and ripe for gutting. and Kirk figures out that Hengist has a connection to the entity, and when ...

There is a part in the episode at approx 12:30 where Kirk asks the Guardian if they are successful what will happen. The Guardian tells them all will be set back to normal and they will be returned as though nothing happened. The Guardian sends them back. Also notice they come back with uniforms back on, where at the point in the episode, Kirk and Spock do ...

The 'wailing woman' (or Loulie Jean Norman as she prefers to be called) is present in the Star Trek theme in the pilot (The Cage) and seasons 2 and 3, however the composition was changed slightly between seasons: in season 2, the vocal track was given more prominence and in season 3 the organ track is given more, but you can still hear it if you listen very ...

The in-universe explanation is quite simple: they don't. They're speaking Klingon and the universal translator makes it sound like they're speaking English. It's basically impossible to tell which characters speak English due to this device, as by the 24th century they're small enough to fit inside a Starleet Combadge, as Captain Janeway mentions in The ...

Although it was obviously quite close between them, I believe the answer to the question is that the Stargate website came before the Star Trek Generations website. Although there are lots of pages and references to both sites as being first, I have only been able to find a single reference for either of them that includes a date. From the Star Trek ...

It's probably Stargate. The registration record for startrek.com lists 1995-02-27 as the creation date and for stargate.com as 1986-08-05. This date corresponds not to the movie stargate, but to the much earlier TV show "The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers" in which one of the episodes involved finding a "stargate".

You hit the paradox on the head. To beings that exist outside of 3 dimensions (and assuming time is the next dimension) any interaction is already both presumed to occur and presumed to not occur. Reality for us is still based in 3 dimensions with time constantly moving forward. Our reaction is like the batter and spectators from our perspective...we see ...
