  1. Watched the first episode. I liked it. Seems promising.
  2. I see what you're saying, and it makes sense. Trek has immediate pop culture recognition. Which means, if they're going to do more Trek, and take JJ's Trek as a model of (moderate?) success, then revisiting TOS characters and settings makes total sense. Why gamble on new characters in a 24th century setting when recent success has been in the 23rd century settings? So I do wonder why they needed to establish their main character as having a connection to Spock. A brand new character in a prequel era that could have crossed paths with Spock, et al, without violating any "canon" should have been
  3. From a narrative/story standpoint, what's the point of making it at all? I don't know anything about how series are developed, so why do producers/writers choose one genre and setting over another? Trek has automatic appeal and recognition, so I get why they picked that brand. But do they do background research with focus groups? Did they check to see if setting a new show in Trek's relative future would get better ratings? I guess we'll see if Picard's new series gets better viewership than Disco, and we'll be able to compare it to the next 23rd century series. But are ratings/viewership mean
  4. I like that it's a prequel. There's still lots of stuff to do in the 23rd century. Not that I expected Discovery to answer these questions, but since they went there - The Pike-Spock relationship In "The Cage" Pike and Spock barely interact and don't seem close (at least no closer than any other officers), but in "The Menagerie" Spock is willing to hijack the Enterprise to take Pike to Talos IV. How did that relationship develop? Maybe we will get some insight there.Why is it the Christopher Pike Medal of Valor? Pike has a medal of valor named after him in the 24th century, and is already co
  5. I am. It's fine. I like Trek, I know the lore, and even though the visuals are different, I accept it. I always figure the depiction is an approximation of the "real" Trek universe. I think the second season is shaping up well. So far it's been interesting, and I like getting to know the bridge crew characters a little more. At least they're getting some development. Anson Mount as Pike is really good. It almost seems a shame to have to put him back on the Enterprise eventually.
  6. I was for a while. Just wasn't fun to interact or discuss anything with the now banned ones.
  7. I was right?? I usually suck at identifying people with new handles. It took me longer than it should have to figure out Robin was Torch.
  8. We could turn that into a thread unto itself! Whomever guesses correctly wins a prize. Son of Lucas?
  9. Anyway, it hardly seems like Robin said something controversial. Do you not agree with his sentiment?
  10. Oh? I was doing my grammar nitpicking, actually. Your "it" is ambiguous as phrased.
  11. Sorry to hear that. But it is the truth.Sounds like you agree with Robin.
  12. They haven't announced any new ones, therefore they're not making any more? And just when the rumor of an Obi-wan movie was spreading.
  13. So no one was told the quota was full? Or that they didn't have the right paperwork? I'll have to look into it. The facts are out there (to paraphrase Fox Mulder).
  14. So you don't think these asylum seekers are being set up for later arrest by being turned away at a proper port of entry, Poe? It's a lot of effort on the part of ICE for what I understood to be a misdemeanor. I'm not sure "zero tolerance" policies are ever good.
  15. Ok. Still - the number "90% don't show up" is a lie.
