Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Whats wrong with a 'bit of gay'

The flintstones were having a gay old time every week. No one complained.

Its going to feel a bit different as we are 980 years in the future. I feel that once Discovery reappears then we will get back to more Trek feeling.

Its still good and enjoyable. Not sure why you have a problem with 'gayness'

It isn't Star Trek and that is why when Pike & co came into it it felt like a breath of fresh air and revitalised the series. It will be interesting to see if ratings fall this season and the series gets cancelled like the DV series.
It won't be getting cancelled as Season 4 starts production next month.

Also we knew before the show started that it would be different as it was confirmed early on that the show would focus on one main character and not a set of crew members.

I also wouldn't at all say there has been a 'gay' drama every episode. Think you are inventing things that aren't there.

Go watch Lower Decks, you might enjoy that. Also you'll be happy then that Pike is getting his own spin off show.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Watched it last night and really enjoyed it. I only wish they’d thought of doing a far-future series from the outset rather than crapping all over TOS continuity and then having to write their way out of an avoidable mess. That said, they did a good repair job last season and they have alighted on the far-future idea, even though they have done so as a way or explaining away the TOS and NexGen era’s total ignorance of all things Discovery.

I was pleasantly surprised by the final twist this week. Save the Space Whale (or whatever it was) was very NexGen. Also loved seeing one of Morn’s distant descendants show up. Little continuity nods like that show that the showrunners know there’s a fan base out there whose opinion and enjoyment of the thing does actually count for something.

If played well, a committed starfleet crew dealing with the death of the federation could make for genuinely compelling storytelling.

Which means they’ve either given continuity the middle finger again, or they’re dropping clever hints about the recent history of the federation.

For now I’m willing to hope it’s the latter.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

It was ok.

I thought the sequence In the trading post was very Guardians of the Galaxyesque.

To early to form an opinion on where it’s going.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

The ongoing job of rehabilitating this series and making it actual Star Trek rather than careless reimagining continues.

Tonight’s episode really felt like the real thing, the use of a botanic garden for location filming gave a real sense of connection to the production design of ST:TNG, the Caves of Mak'ala tied it to DS9 and a brief appearance by a ST:Picard era Starfleet uniform brought the continuity together and right up to date.

It looks and feels like Star Trek at last and I’m very happy. I’m really looking forward to them continuing to explore the whole human-Trill thing. I think I got something caught in my eye at the very end of the episode.
