I'm mildly enjoying this, but I really hate Star Trek having this tone. Especially in 2017 having gritty Star Trek seems especially depressing. I don't mind showing the dark side of the Federation, violating Roddenberry's rules, or even the plot itself, but it just feels wrong having everyone be all antagonistic to each other.

Non-Discovery request:

What were the key TNG episodes / seasons that set up DS9? (Season 5 and early Season 6, maybe?)

I don't mean TBOBW, obviously -- I'm talking primarily about the Bajoran / Cardassian stuff.

Pretty much just "Ensign Ro" and 'Preemptive Strike'

I have a feeling they're doing an arc where everyone starts out antagonistic and learns to get along a bit better, but yeah, it's still all wrong.

What they did to the Klingons is especially terrible. It's just "cut away to see the bad guys" garbage.

Mean engineer guy is growing to like Burnham. I don't think they're all jerks at heart. It's Lorca's effect on the crew. For now we just have to draw our positivity from the critter and band camp girl.

I like Lorca as a potentially unreliable captain rather than the noble peacemaker

We see glimpses of this TNG with Pressman and O'Brien's captain who went rogue but it's never been explored from this angle

on the one hand name dropping elon musk was ridiculous, but on the other hand it's a space faring civilization and he's the first guy to make privatizing aspects of it practical so it's possible he could do some great whateverthing.

why would elon musk exist in an earth timeline where the 1990s were a decade of genocidal wars between genetic supermen?

unless it's a third, as yet unannounced timeline, both mainline trek and abrams trek both have the eugenics wars as an important earth milestone event (that's why khan is the main villain in Into Darkness)

I'm enjoying this so far but it's bothering me that apparently the imaginary computer voice from 2250 sounds way way worse than a real computer voice in 2017

Yeah I don't like the computer voice either. And the fact that Burnham was able to outargue the computer into letting her out of the brig was weird

Whenever there is a long, drawn-out Klingon scene, I can't help but look at my phone. The Klingon sections of this show are among the worst thing ever filmed for a Television series. So bad.

thought ep 5 was really solid. doug jones is incredible.

tilly dropping "fuck" and then stamets saying it right after was hilarious.

solidly self-contained ep.

rainn wilson was pretty good! thought they set mudd up well for a return.
