Tonight's episode was genuinely really good. Best one since Harry Mudd takes over the ship

I liked it except for a few major things that kind of ruined my enjoyment of it. And only seemed to be there for shock value and to make Trek seem ~eDgY~.

But the Tilly stuff was great.

Mirror Universe is always mega edgy, part of the campy fun. Turned proud and scrappy Kira into a moustache twiddling nymphomaniac villain, for instance. I quite liked the new episode, though I hope they don't dwell in the mirror universe too long.

Also I am exceptionally attracted to Evil Tilly.

This show was on the skids for a few weeks and the finale was just terrible, especially the very end. I’m obviously going to keep watching it, and the cast is still amazing, but the writing for these last 3-4 episodes has been asinine.

I was really skeptical about this until I watched his Trek con announcement where he said “Captain Picard is back” and started crying when the audience went batshit. Also it seems like he has a lot of input on the new show, so it sounds like it won’t be a rehash. “This will not be the Jean-Luc Picard you know.” Ok, my interest is piqued.

Indifferent on the Spock casting for Disco. I’m so tired of rehashes of TOS. New stories in a much different time period please (Post-Dominion war show when? Maybe the Picard show will be that scratch to my itch?). Of course, there’s nowhere that Disco can go but up after those dreadful Mirror Universe episodes, so who knows.

The Klingons have hair again! If giving Spock a hipster beard is the price we had to pay for that I’m all for it.

haha that trailer actually made me laugh out loud. seemed more like a fan edit of the worst parts of jj abrams star trek universe

 

btw: did they ever explain why this new star trek set in the past has better tech than everything that came after it?

yes, it's because it's being shot in the year 2018, not 1966, or 1987.

Pretty much this. When a franchise spans over 50 years you just have to roll with that shit - or stop making prequels, but the holodeck/replicator stuff was already getting pretty out of hand by the end of DS9/VOY. Interested to see what the new Picard show will do with the 20 year time jump after Nemesis.

makes sense: but why then not set the events further in the future (beyond the events of VOY) rather than in the past (before TOS) ?
