It’s alright so far, I really like the TNG cameos and Stewart is making a serious effort. Could live without the JJ Abrams action scenes.

So far they haven’t brought back Section 31 again so that’s a plus. Wish they’d have some DS9 cameos, maybe drop by O’Brien’s engineering classroom.

Wish they’d have mention of the Dominion War, even a quick “we rebuilt this part of starfleet HQ after the Breen Attack.”

Dunno why Romulans needed starfleet help to evacuate their home system from a supernova. They have a large fleet and an empire, just pay the Ferengi to make nonstop flights on space cruise ships.

Tal Shiar a major plot element, no mention they were nearly annihilated in a Dominion trap.

I got the impression they aren't evacuating the home system - that was destroyed instantly along with most of their shipyards. The evacuation process is for Romulan colonies about to get irradiated in the coming years.

Or something. It feels like no one bothered to agree on any of that.

You're all nuts, The Animated Series is the best Star Trek and always will be. In no other series does the crew meet Satan and psychic snailmen, and Yesteryear is the best follow-up (to The City on the Edge of Forever even!) of the entire franchise except maybe Wrath of Khan. If you haven't seen TAS you really owe it to yourself to watch it.

Relevant to the point at hand, Picard was a war criminal who flew a kindergarten into battle every week and shot experimental missiles at everything with no regards to treaties that we know for a fact existed between the Federation and other powers, treaties that are the entire point of three whole movies and multiple story arcs of TNG. But whatever, Picard orders Geordi to dump toxic waste into a warhead capable missile "class 4 probe" and shoot it at an endangered species AGAIN, gently caress laws I guess. When I first saw Jean-Luc was back at the vineyard I was really hoping it was under guarded exile or something. I still hold out hope that Geordi LaForge is chained to a wall somewhere for being Captain Ahab's junkyard dog, but he's probably chief of Starfleet engineering or an admiral or something instead.

I know the fisrt JJ trek movie takes place in an alternate time line, but what about the destruction of Romulus, or Remus or whatever the gently caress that made the dude come back to alter the whatever the gently caress? Is that the same disaster that is referred to above or is that some different poo poo?

Did the americans starfleet use their HAARP facility in Alaska to blow up the Romulan sun the way they used it to blow up Praxis in ST6:TUC?

I was sorta hoping he'd be revealed in the pilot to have like three dozen kids, having devoted the time since quitting Starfleet to making babies basically nonstop.

I like how Spock got to come back from being dead because he touched Bones' face before he died, like full blown sitcom "everything is back the way it was" back to life. But they somehow can't figure out a way to make the artificial man come back, even with a few extra copies floating around. poo poo, Data already effectively mind melded with the dumb one before he died.

Do they deal with that? I heard Data is only back in dream sequences or whatever.

I just couldn't get into DS9 because of this. Thankfully my buddies watched it and told me to tune in for the Dominion War battle stuff.

Don't get me wrong, another DS9 will be just fine too. I understand why people love it so much - it's a great show. But there's something about self-contained storylines with an interesting or quirky premise, where everything wraps up neatly at the end. It's relaxing and comforting in a way that TV shows just aren't these days. I can pick a TNG or Voyager episode at random from any season and know that it'll (probably) be an enjoyable 45 minutes of TV without having to follow an overarching storyline. The Orville was really good for this, just leaned a little too hard into the comedy for me personally.

E: Oh poo poo there's a season two of Orville? Sweet, I know what I'm watching tonight!

Eye can see you.

I really do enjoy this show, however I was doing some reading about it which makes me think that’s eventually going to become a TNG circlejerk. We’ve already seen Data flashbacks, and that did turn out to be Hugh on the wrecked cube. In the future we can expect to see Mr. and Mrs. William Riker living out their golden years, and possibly Guinan as well. We also get to see how Seven Of Nine has aged.

Before Discovery I thought I wanted a heavily serialized Star Trek, but it's really the standalone episodes that I ended up liking more. In retrospect, DS9 had a good structure, most seasons had general development but until the big series finale you could still watch a lot of them as standalone stories with just a general sense of where they fit overall. I think that's what I'd have liked best for Disco assuming they'd have to have some kind of larger storyline going on. (Picard hasn't bothered me that way so far just because it's so very different than the space exploration Trek shows)

Patrick Stewart was on The View and he asked Whoopi to come do season 2 and she said yes. It was kind of sweet actually, she went on about how much fun it was to film the show and how well everyone got along on set.

It seems like it would be easy to have a starship show going off and doing the alien/planet of the week, while occasionally coming to resupply at an outpost that has it's own DS9-type show. Expensive to run two shows I guess, but it makes perfect sense in universe at least and would be a cool melding of serial and standalones.
