Yeah, I do prioritise it to watch on a Monday when I get home from work. I'm more curious as to where it's leading and what the big twist is.

Because there has to be a twist.

A twist is the only way to explain all the advanced technology. :BANG_HEAD:

Also Robert April and Christopher Pike. I loved Mudd last week.



I'm still watching, though haven't seen this week's ep yet. Was a bit bad last night. I struggle to see this as a Trek show, but I'm enjoying it enough if I treat it like a generic sci fi show. Though I really don't like the Klingon stuff. The prothestics make the actors sound really stupid when they speak and I pretty much just zone out during those parts. I have yet to see a member of Discovery's crew I like who wasn't on the Shinzou (I like Officer Ganglia, Burnham seems fine considering she had a Vulcan upbringing so she should be a bit more emotionless). Cadet is ok. Really don't like the rest of the crew. Security Chief deserved what she got. Wow what a stupid character. And I liked the resolution of the Tardigrade thing last week. That felt like a Trek moment.


Honestly though, I probably would have liked it better if it was Star Trek Shinzou. Lol. Gonna try to watch this week's episode tonight.


Even if all the advanced tech makes my inner Trekkie scream it's all way too advanced. Not the visuals, I'm fine with visuals not looking like TOS. It looks like an advanced Enterprise, which is what it should. But I mean the actual tech, like all those holograms. What I would have done is set it 40 years after Nemesis/Voyager. Make the recurring threat the extinct sixth member of the Xindii. Those flyers. I'm sure some good prothetics could have been made based on their skeleton we saw. They return and they are the ones who are causing problems.


Alternatively, the ongoing threat is a Romulan trying to alter history to stop the supernova and bring back Romulus.

As long as Tarantino only directs and doesn't write. His last 3 movies he wrote were worthless garbage.

I wonder if Shatner will finally make it into the new movies, he's gotta be pushing 90, he won't be around too much longer.

The first season of Discovery is done. Overall, I enjoyed it. The season finale left me disappointed though. I expected a massive cliffhanger, instead, we get an Enterprise that looks incredibly dated against Discovery, which reminds us just where Discovery sits in the time line. The story did a good job of making me forget where it fit in, which made me look at it as a stand alone series, not weighed down by 50 years of history. But in those final moments, I was reminded of where it fit and how many inconsistencies that dredges up.
