Are the bridge guys improving? Hard to believe some of the stuff they come up with is scripted.

No idea, but it works for me. The back & forth seems natural.
This week's episode was enjoyable, with goid character moments throughout.
While Star Trek would have 'Prime Directive'-ed the hell out of that situation, i didnt mind the straightforward manner in which things resolved.

Theyre pulling out some surprising guest appearances, too.

Revisited this thread to see what people are saying.

Sounds like a mixed bag as far as whether people like it or not.

I might try to start from the beginning of the show at some point and make up my own mind.

Well, it's better than what a lot of reviews would lead you to believe, for whatever that is worth. I personally enjoy a lot of the banter that goes on between the characters. I know Riv has already mentioned something similar, but the interactions between the crew members genuinely feels like normal conversation between a group of people who have been working together for a while, and who have developed that level of comfort around each other.

Yeah, that sounds like a plus. My interest got more sparked when I read that it has its moments poking fun at religion, heh...

Prime Directive wouldn't have applied in this situation, imo.

4th episode was a good one, though. The show is steadily improving, and it almost felt like watching an old episode of the original Star Trek.

Thats why you arent on the bridge.

Agree that it has that old ST feel, right down to the away team.

A failed engine isn't a natural disaster.

Yeah it was. and I liked that they actually used a B plot too with Bortus, showing us that they're going to keep threads going throughout the season.

Prime Directive states:
quote:
...This conceptual law applies particularly to civilizations which are below a certain threshold of technological, scientific and cultural development; preventing starship crews from using their superior technology to impose their own values or ideals on them.

Which is exactly what they did, use their superior tech to impose their will, forcibly bringing these ppl into their Union.
They opened up the SKY, on a society steeped in theological issues.
Who knows how many suicides they caused as ppl simply couldnt deal with their entire reality being upended with zero warning?
Also who cares.
It was a fun straightforward ep. and everything worked out.

I agree on following up the B plots, like with Bortus, and even the slime guy's flirting.
Hoping they follow up on Alara's dating difficulties.

I watched a couple episodes of this last night.

Doesn't deserve the thumping it's getting in reviews. Thought it was pretty fun.

Can't say I agree with any of that, but okay.

Yeah, the Alara thing should be interesting.

Episode 4 was pretty good, I thought.
