Star Trek is better than everything

Things I really like:

 

  • Treating “All Good Things…” as a sort of backdoor pilot, giving the new series a grounding in something familiar that feels right.
  • The idea of using Galaxy both in terms of branding (we have Abrams’ Enterprise-A and Discovery’s Enterprise already being used in other productions so let’s avoid that… but Galaxy immediately and non-awkwardly connotes the Enterprise-D of TNG).

 

Things I’m not sure I would go with:

 

  • The young captain who dies — too like Decker from TMP (but maybe it’s better than rehashing Riker from TNG)
  • Time travel/anomalies/traps — please, would an exploration/contact mission be too much to ask?

Now that I have watched the three TNG era series in recent memory, it's fun going back to the beginning and watching The Original Series in broadcast order. It's neat seeing how some of the basic terminology and rules evolved as a result of making it all up as they went along.

One of the worst episodes of DS9 was on last night. Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places. Nothing in this one makes sense. It's like the writers thought they were doing the mirror universe. Just about everyone is totally out of character, especially Worf. I also don't know where that O'Brien/Kira thing came from.

That was fantastic in its cringeworthyness!

Too bad TNG never explored the Mirror universe. An evil Picard, Troi using her personal pain device to achieve orgasm. Data wearing an eye patch
