That Star Trek thread somebody was talking about

I was put off from the start by Irish Romulan, then Australian Romulan. Is the 8th episode the one with Riker & Troi? That's a really good episode because it feels like Jonathan Frakes has been living the gimmick, although Lower Decks Riker is still better. If you like ridiculously obvious foreshadowing and deus ex machina you'll love the finale.

Fuck that, I want to see Yaphet Kotto as Captain of the Enterprise. "Make it so".

I finished Picard. While the big space payoff appealed to my mark side, the damage was already done by hearing a Romulan talk about fucking. The actual resolution (wary of spoiling here) was quite Star Trek, but the last two episodes convoluted something which should have stayed simple. Which is the story’s problem all over, especially routinely confusing you who you want to see succeed at any particular moment for a particular reason when 20 minutes earlier you were looking forward to their death, or vice versa.

Can anyone name the whole Discovery crew without looking?

Stamets I always remember because he's named after an actual mushroom enthusiast.

Honestly there’s been so little character development to half the bridge crew, at one point I assumed they were just rotating extras who occasionally drew straws to see who got a line this week.

Tilly, Detmer, the one that originally played Airiam but plays a different character now, Owo, that bloke, Michael, Saru, Pike, Cuthbert, Dibble & Grubb. 

 

EDIT: I forgot Doctor Hugh, but be careful how you pronounce it.

My worry with any new STAR TREK these days is it seems nobody involved seems to have actually watched STAR TREK before. Alex Kurtzman really needs to just fuck off.

I had hope for PICARD but they didn't seem to utterly understand the character at all. Hopefully with a new showrunner we will see something better (Which is weird as I like Michael Chabon's novels)

Q is always great fun so I'll watch but i can't say I'm going in with any enthusiasm.
