Yeah fuck The Orville. (I've never seen The Orville).

I've been flitting through episodes of DS9. Garak was badass. On a rewatch, Julian is even more annoying than usual, even when he reveals the cool super genes. Eugh. Ezri. Woof. That was a real jump the shark moment.

Julian's super genes is the principal tamzarian moment the series and character really didn't need

Considering the writers loved a 'heres a normal thing and now its changed and the character struggles' trope, its a surprise they didnt take the genetic changes away to make him 'normal'.

But alas. Damar is awesome too by the way.

Sisko is a great captain, but the real star of DS9 was Miles Edward O'Brien. The true everyman of Star Trek.

Oh, it did my nut every time I realized I was stuck with an O'Brien episode, they seemed to come around like one in three!!

My highlight of DS9 upon a rewatch is definitely the appalling behaviour of Dr Bashir, intergalactic sexpest.

I really like The Expanse, but anyone comparing it with Star Trek is being silly. They're both sci-fi, but they're not all that similar.

I know. Back when the Discovery chat was in the TV thread, it got hijacked by people basically ragging on it because it was neither Old School Trek or The Expanse. The concept of apples and oranges seemed alien to them.

I'm a big Expanse fan myself, but likewise, the comparison infuriates me.

My one consolation was that O'Brien's wife clearly found him as annoying as I did.  She really fucking HATED him, she spent most of her time on the planet.

I'm certain the only reason she didn't dump him after her first time back to the station was that she'd been infected by Deanna Trois mum.
