Re: Star Trek (2017)

Wasn't sure how I would feel back to war with Klingon's but that was a really damn good episode. It even felt very Star Trek. Somehow I was even a bit surprised by the ending. Season ends next episode but that ending leas to some more story lines for season 2 especially considering the actress is someone you wouldn't think would be a throw away character. That said there is no guarantee they don't kill her off

Re: Star Trek (2017)

I was really surprised the season is ending so soon. Only 6 episodes in the 2nd half of the season? Boo.

I was hoping for an 18+ episode season.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

A bit of a weak ending to a great season. Very trek ending

Re: Star Trek (2017)

Best actors of the season?

I'm gonna go with Tilly and then Lorca. Suru too I suppose. Worst is Ash? I found any dramatic scene between him and Michael was an autoskip for me.

Worst was clearly Burnham. Way too much "sassy strong black woman" in the character for an orphan raised by vulcans.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

Thought she played someone who witnessed her family being slaughtered at a young age, then raised in a vulcan society very well. Many words I'd use to describe her character, sassy would not be one of them.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

Never check them for fear of spoilers, but have the Reddit detectives got any theories on the blue dot that settled on Tilly's shirt yet? I'm predicting it's a little bit o' Lorca.

Episode 13, with like 3 minutes left the engineering section is on screen - with the floating blue spores in the air and all the engineers looking up with smiles. Then, one detaches from the cloud and starts to fall towards her shoulder, turning from blue to bright green. Hits her shirt then fades out.

Probably nothing, but I was reminded about it the next week when they showed the 'previously on' clips...

Re: Star Trek (2017)

ash was so ****ing terrible he almost single handedly ruined the whole series jfc

burnham was good. lorca was good.

my favorite was the nerdy engineer chick. love her. i loved in the last episode when she calls burnam on the communicator and she's like "ok first of all i'm totally high, but you have to listen to me. the drone is not a drone. it's a bomb"

the japanese woman captain is terrible. wtf, why do they cast these terrible actors?

Re: Star Trek (2017)

I enjoyed the first few episodes of Discovery (mostly before Lorca became a moustache twirling villain or Ash... talked) but now I'm definitely part of that silent majority that prefers Orville.

Orville is more Star Trek'y than Star Trek these days. Love all of the episodes with gay Worf. Found myself tearing up at the gender reassignment episode and even the holodeck episode.

The sad thing is McFarland wanted to do an actual Star Trek show and couldn't make it happen.
