made it to season 2 of seaQuest - itís really bad.

A plot element in this episode is ďweíve been polluting the universe with radio waves for 100 years and suddenly seaQuest is acting like a giant antennaĒ picking them all up at once.

Itís scifi written by people who donít have the patience to crack a science book.

kindle and audible have had low key badges and stuff for about two years hidden in some subtab of a submenu, im guessing some intern project that nobody cares about until now

like apparently I had a great 36 week streak in 2018, but it doesnt check both platforms so it says i read a few books this year in one and well over a dozen in the other

in my dim 90s memory seaQuest was ďstar trek in the oceanĒ and it would be a silly but watchable complement to all of the star treks i have watched up to this point during the pandemic. well i have made it all the way thru TOS -> TNG -> DS9 -> voyager and now bakula trek, the most shameful trek (until star trek discovery, arguably)

bakula trek looks like genius level writing compared to seaQuest

The worst part about seaQuest is that I WANT it to be good, but it isnít.

This episode is about a group of terrirists who are genetically engineered soldiers who want basic human rights so they take control of the ronald reagan memorial orbital laser platform and use it to blow up the atmospheric oxygen regeneration stations that were put in place after the great rainforest clearcutting of 2014. Not only that, the terrorists WIN.

That plot could be *amazing* but literally every part of the execution beyond that basic plot outline is complete garbage.

this is like the finale of enterprise but worse. amazing. i think i blanked the whole show out aside from the twist season 3 as a form of self preservation
