Nacho, you've stopped reporting on Picard. Apparently it's not living up to the hype?

It makes coronavirus look fun.

Holy shit... The actors who played Tom Paris and Harry Kim are doing a podcast where they watch every episode of Voyager. It's amazing:

The original TNG show bible is kind of fascinating.

The distilled insanity of Roddenberry. You can still see his tortured genius standing upright here, eh?

He was about to get to his loopy phase for sure. I suppose its where we're all headed.

I haven't read these, but I'm researching show bibles for my own project and ones for all the 90s Star Trek shows are out there.

You need to get the DS9 documentary into you. It's amazing. They're doing one for Voyager, as well, which had a rocky road. Everyone said the behind the scenes at Voyager was super-charged and uptight (and, of course, half the cast wanted out halfway through...)

Wait...didn't we have a discussion going about the new Voyager-spin off cartoon and Lower Decks? Why can't I find it now? There are only three people posting, each once a month!

Anyway, I gave Lower Decks a try. The cartoon adventures of the worst ship in Starfleet. And...I liked it! What?

What's very interesting is that it's set 7 years (now six years) prior to the Romulan supernova that kicks off the Kelvin Timeline, and is a major disaster for everyone. That's followed by the Synth Rebellion that tips Starfleet over the edge (as seen in Picard). Some of these elements are baked into episode one of the first season. So there's a very clear plan here I think -- a few years of comedy devolving into the fuckery of the late 2380s.

The trailers look legitimately funny.
