Episode three was a vast improvement over the first two. So I have a bit of renewed hope for this show.

Do like the Captain, solid actor and I enjoy that we don't really know where he stands morals wise

Do like fish-boy the new first officer.

Do like the overall dark tones of the show now, considering it's set to the backdrop of the Federation/Klingon War, even if we know how that ends

Do not like the main character, I know she's supposed to be Vulcanized and apparently Spock's adopted sister, but she's just not selling me with her stoic ass acting. Hopefully this changes

i ask because Captain Lorca seems to want to use that large creature for something... would he be able to transport it onto a Klingon ship?


Here's how I imagine transporters working:

Breaks you down into atoms, stores the information in a buffer.

Transporter out the other end forms your dupicate to live out your life.

Only real way to explain the two Riker's. Bones is right to never want to use the things (Or his 9,999,999th clone is..)

Yeah, right back to where we started, except in an unaffordable manner. Stupid.

And then they'll feign ignorance and blame it on consumers when nobody buys their service for one or two shows.

Is this show also on Netflix or are they sticking to their phazers and keeping it only on their own streaming service?

For North America, its only on their own streaming service. For the rest of us it's on Netflix (for now).

Hmm..

Tin hat foil time: *Puts tin foil hat on* What if this is a really expensive scheme to justify Trump administrations anti-neutrality polices.

Lets whip up a service, and put someone on it everyones gonna want to see. Like Star Trek!

Then when nobody buys our shit and pirates it, which we WANT them to do, we've got one more piece of evidence to drive home the death of net neutrality.

Sad thing is, thinking like this isn't exactly without precedent..

So there's a theory that this [SPOILER - highlight to read]: is the mirror universe .

Would explain the inconsistencies and why [SPOILER - highlight to read]: they're being a bit coy on which timeline this is

Anyway got me curious enough to keep watching and see where they go with this. Especially after Ep. 3 was a vast improvement anyway.

I hope that is the case, people can more or less just pretend this is really well done fanfiction.

Hmm I wonder if this is pre-Uss Enterprise given Spock was 1st officer on that ship years before Kirk came along.

Rewatched the pilot and that theory seems kind of trash given the number of that they mention they're explorers, and name drop the United federation and star fleet.

It's the Ep.3 Captain who seems more mirrorish. But he could just be related to Section 31.

Dunno, the MU Federation wouldn't give two shits bout saving a race of rubes like they did in Ep1. So I highly doubt it, despite that it could potentially be a great twist.

He's defo working with or is at least sympathetic with Sec31 mission statement.

Watched a few more episodes of TNG.

Kinda reminds me of Xfiles monster of the week type episodes. Similar pattern.

Also amusing to watch them get around the budget constraints they obviously had to deal with. Sometimes they'll make the aliens actually look weird and alien-like, other time they're just regularly looking humans. The one I watched last night was them encountering a new alien race, that was just attractive blonde people.

The planet of attractive blonde people, forgot about that one. laughing

Yeah, you're gonna see a lot of cheese in the first few seasons.

I'd recommend brilliant web critic S.F. Debris, and seeing his reviews whenever you finish a particularly off beat episode.

Here's his site:

http://sfdebris.com/videos/startrek.php


He may have some stuff on Youtube, as well.. His site had hosting issues awhile back and some of his better stuff like "Rise and Fall of the Comic Empire" (MUST.SEE) got transplanted.

Lol yeah...I think it is not until like season 3 that they got an increased budget.

What do you think of Q?

Was that the dude in the first episode?

I dunno. I didn't find him all that compelling.

There was also another race of aliens they discovered that was just a bunch of black people.

So TNG is teaching me that blonde people and black people are aliens.
