The trailers look legitimately funny.

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.

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...)

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?

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:

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

It makes coronavirus look fun.

Episode six is not a Seven of Nine backstory episode... But, unlike everyone else, her character is radically different and so far off the rails that it's almost impossible to reconcile her with the Seven of Nine we saw last. So when we actually do need a backstory episode...we don't get one!

Sigh... So Jeri Ryan gets shoehorned in to the finale of episode four in the most awkward way possible. But she's still super hot, so whatever.

Though now I'm worried they'll spend two episodes telling us what Seven of Nine has been doing in the last 15 years in the most minute detail.

I'm not sure a 10 episode series needs TWO episodes of filler and exposition. But.... I hear Jeri Ryan's going to show up eventually.

Picard episode two holds up. We have a deep mystery here. A little bit of a red flag -- most of the episode is exposition. And it feels like most of the next episode will be finding clues and assembling a crew. We don't actually have that long a season here. It feels like all of season one will be building up to "the beginning of the adventure," which... Well, that's okay. But be careful, writers! Because eight hours of making sure the ship has enough gas has been a mistake made by many other sci-fi shows.

Picard starts streaming today. Iím anxiously awaiting the Nacho review.

It's fucking incredible. Period. Go watch it.
