WMG / SF Debris

Go To

When Chuck gets around to reviewing "Victory of the Daleks", he will include a Linkara Shout-Out... playing "Go, Go, Power Rangers" when the new, multicolored Dalek designs appear. This would reference both the new design's Fan Nickname and Linkara's SF Debris-inspired History of the Power Rangers reviews.
  • Diamanda Hagan already did that.
  • As did Mr Tardis, all the way back in 2010. He even made the Doctor Rita Repulsa.

The secret review 27 september will be a Mass Effect Review
In his latest podcast on Moonhawk Studios he admited on doing a videogame review (though not as a game but as a work of science fiction). This will be a review on Mass Effect. This will work due to its storydriven nature (with actions and consequenses) and the deep and expansive universe which plays on his strenghts as a reviewer. Also he has had several Mass Effects references in his reviews so he is obviously a fan of the games.
  • Hopefully it will be a retrospective of the Original Trek series, which debuted 45 years ago this september. Also TNG premièred 24 years ago on the 28th of September, and the immediately preceding video is the last original Trek movie. It would be the perfect time to do a retrospective of TOS and the original movie series.
  • Mass Effect: confirmed.
  • I had thought that the review was going to be MLP: Friendship is Magic, for some reason. And now Chuck is actually doing the review of it.

"Code of Honor" will get the "0" for Star Trek: The Next Generation
This first-season episode, which features a strife-filled world populated solely by black people, has been referred to by Chuck as being an utter disgrace to the entire series several times in the past.
  • More likely with the revelation that it will be the 2011 Christmas Review. Why would an ordinary TNG episode be the big Christmas Review unless it were meaningful in some other way? And, of course, the 2010 Christmas Review was "A Night In Sickbay", another "0" episode.
  • Confirmed

The secret review on September 27th will be the updated review of "Unexpected"
The secret review is listed as "surprised". So maybe it will be an Unexpected suprise.

The secret review on September 27th will be of the of the "original trilogy".
While he said he wouldn't do episodes I-III, he never said anything about the originals.

Chuck is doing MLP because someone paid him a large sum of money for it. And the fact that its WTF Week.
Hey it works! And I asked him, hasn't replied but I asked!
  • Potentially, but possibly not. Keep in mind that SF Debris is a father.
  • Confirmed, sort of. He did say it was requested. And remember MLP:FIM has a large adult male audience. Like SF Debris.

The remaining zeroes for TOS, TAS and Deep Space Nine will be "The Way to Eden", "The Infinite Vulcan" and "Profit and Lace".
Pure speculation, but these are regarded to be some of the worst episodes of these series...
  • SF Debris hasn't done a review of a Star Trek: The Animated Series episode yet.
    • The door was officially opened to TAS in this video. The speculation for it is premature, but valid.
      • And so it begins... SF Debris is now doing TAS!
  • "Profit and Lace" is de facto confirmed already; in his "Let He Who Is Without Sin..." review, Chuck explicitly says that the only way to go lower than that episode is to "give Quark boobs", which refers to this one.
  • And "Profit and Lace" is totally confirmed as the 2012 Christmas review.
  • And now "The Way To Eden", while abysmal, has been Jossed as the original series' worst - my money's on "The Savage Curtain", or "And The Children Shall Lead".
    • Yep. "And the Children Shall Lead" it is.
  • "The Infinite Vulcan" theory confirmed, as he does it for his 2016 Christmas Review?
Chuck will do Profit and Lace for the Christmas 2013
  • Jossed, he did Profit and Lace for Christmas 2012.

Chuck will do the "0" episode of "Star Trek: The Original Series" for Christmas this year (2012)
Most likely, 2012 will consist of either the bad TOS episode or the bad Deep Space 9 episode and 2013 will be the other one. Someone already suggested Profit and Lace next Christmas.
  • Jossed, it's "Profit and Lace".
  • Also Jossed for reviewing TOS for christmas 2013, instead it's another awful Star Trek episode: These Are The Voyages.

Chuck will do the "0" episode of "Star Trek: The Animated Series" for Christmas this year (2016)
Considering how many reviews of the Star Trek Animation, he's been doing in 2016 (More in a year, than he has in five years), and how he did a Zero Episode for SG-One by the reasoning of him doing a lot of them in 2014, it would make sense for him to do that one, Eh?
  • Confirmed, with him doing "The Infinite Vulcan"?

Chuck will end up doing another My Little Pony review at some point.
Although he stated in his MLP review that he was not a watcher of the series, he has recently started putting more references and nods to the series. This could be a hint at a future review or that perhaps he's views about the series has changed from the time of the review and the present.
  • It's pretty much a given, considering how Q made it to Equestria.
  • Semi-confirmed when he gave My Little Pony it's own slot under animation despite having only reviewed one episode.
  • And he did!

Sooner or later, Chuck will take a look at the plotlines of Atop the Fourth Wall.
Ignoring the review parts, Chuck has enough AT4W plotline material to pull together a review. After all, as said on his own site, "any science fiction, fantasy, or horror show or movie can be requested".

If there is ever a remake of TNG, SF Debris will use the 2009 version of 99 Red Balloons for it.
You know it to be quite in line with what he would do.

Somebody will make a SF Debris Star Trek fic or he will be referenced if they do another television show in the next five years

This idea came from a comment I saw saying the Children of Tama tech support where from the: Debris!Trek-verse". Chuck often points out the weird or out of place, or Unfortunate Implications of this franchise and takes them to the next step in his jokes. If he gets or is big enough somebody will write a star trek fic where everything he said is true. So the entire verse pretty much happened exactly except: Janeway is a crazy dictator, Picard literally laughs when children die, the 2009 Kirk is literally the universes biggest douchebag even more so than Q, the children of Tama run tech support explaining why everything tech problem iso poorly handled in the future etc...

Alternatively if he gets big enough one of the first five episodes of a new trek show will make a reference to him in a season one episode. I say five years because that is how long I imagine it would take for him to get to the level to be noticed by any producer besides one who was already a big fan.

R2 is going to have a Heroic BSoD when he finds out he helped kill the Death Star computer.
He's going to be very sad.

Chuck will appear again on Atop the Forth Wall or Linkara will make an appearance on an SF Debris Review at some point in the future
  • Chuck appearing on AT4W: confirmed as of episode 200. No word yet on the other half though.
  • Chuck also appear in a Review of a Voyager Comic, providing the voice of Parod Janeway?

The Stone of Gol is what served as the template for the Mind Bomb.
It's a psionic resonator that uses emotions as a weapon. It works somewhat differently, but you can probably hack it with sufficient imagination and lack of morals.

When Chuck reviews These Are The Voyages, he will "accidentally" play his intro for Star Trek: The Next Generation
Or he'll play the intro for Star Trek: Enterprise with 99 Red Balloons.
  • Jossed. He played his regular Enterprise intro.

Star Trek Into Darkness Awards(spoilers)
When he does a review of that movie he will give at least one of the next awards:
  • Lazarus of the Week to Captain Kirk
  • Burn Baby Burn for the Vengeance crashing on earth
  • Ancient Chinese Secret, huh? to calling the stasis pod ancient
  • Jossed. He hated it SO DAMN MUCH that not only did he not give it any awards, he didn't even grade it!

Captain Janeway really is Arachnia, Queen of the Spider People!
  • Come on, megalomaniacal, has those warrior cobalt tarantulas, uses mind control to suppress the will of subordinates, it all fits! I can't wait for him to review Bride of Chaotica!.
  • Eh... I'm not sure if this is confirmed or not. Sort of?

There will be an Allison Pregler / SF Debris crossover.
We will have Darth Phoebe and Captain Insaneway do an evil/insane-off.
  • Please, let my dream come true.

SF Debris is secretly... CHAD ROCCO of Familiar Faces

The Big Star Trek project Chuck is working on for Christmas 2014
At the end of his review of Animated Series episode "The Tricksters of Magicks-Tu", Chuck said that he was working on a big Star Trek project for Christmas 2014. This will be one of the following:
  • A review of Star Trek Into Darkness.
  • A review of (what Chuck considers to be) the worst episode of Star Trek: The Original Series.
  • A fanfic which Chuck will read involving a crossover between various Star Trek series.
  • A review of the ten-part finale of DS9 like the one he did for the Dominion war arc.
  • A non-Trek review. He's ruled out ever doing the Star Wars prequels, but he hasn't ruled out doing the original films and there are three days of "Surprise Gift". He's doing the original Star Wars trilogy!
  • It is the Star Trek Online game review.
    • All Jossed. The Big Star Trek project was a review of Star Trek: Voyager's finale "Endgame" and his other two Surprise Gifts were reviews of Blake's 7's first episode and Stargate SG-1 episode "Emancipation".
      • He did eventually get round to the worst episode of TOS in Christmas 2015: "And The Children Shall Lead".

Chuck is going to review one of the Phoenix Wright games

Here's the evidence. There was a TOS episode which involved William Shatner giving us full-frontal Shatner at his most Shatner-iest. The tension of the episode turned on a courtroom scene, with antics a-plenty. And the name of this episode was... Turnabout Intruder.

And yet, there was not a single Phoenix Wright reference in the entire review. Not a one. Not even the obligatory "Objection!"

That led me to believe that it was simply a game series that Chuck was unfamiliar with. Which was fine.

But then he made a Phoenix Wright reference in one of his latest reviews. So either Chuck passed up the easiest joke ever (not entirely impossible), or he had only recently become aware of the series. Which suggests that he's going to cover it, since it's been a while since a non-Gaidan entry in the series has shown up.

Chuck will give a Lazarus of the Week award to The Alternative Factor

In the same vein as the "Janeway Pie" award in Prime Factors, for the sake of the pun.

  • Confirmed

Christmas 2017's Worst Episode review will be for either Stargate Atlantis or The X-Files

Babylon 5 will probably not get an episode review stamped The Worst on the grounds that the two most likely candidates for that title (Infection and Grey 17 Is Missing) have already been reviewed.

  • Also, Full Moon, Escaflowne, and Kannazuki No Miko are unlikely candidates since they are being reviewed in chronological order, unlike the live action shows Chuck is currently reviewing.
  • Jossed. Star Trek Into Darkness. Incredibly caustic review. I guess "Worst Movie" that year instead.

Shoulder Spider is the spirit of Shelob
There is going to be a Mass Effect III review at some point
  • Also, his opinion on the ending is going to be more nuanced than we'd assume.
    • I mean, Chuck managed to make a nuanced review of freaking Film/Zardoz. He'll see something we don't.

How well does it match the trope?
