Everyone I know loves this show.

Just because it's our only new Trek. Season 1 was such a disaster that they had to essentially reboot the show, undo EVERYHTHING that happened in season one, and bring in the pre-Kirk crew of the Enterprise.

So, now, as a show about Captain Pike, it's okay. Maybe that's where they should have started.

Okay, trying season 2 of Star: Trek Discovery. Which is basically Star Trek: TOS season 0 at this point.

It's over saturation of everything at this point. I'm so glad this new job virtually keeps me off the internet.

Also exhausting: The 10,000 on-demand TV series that they're planning. I feel saturated by Star Trek and all these new series are still years away.

At least two days since I've become aware of it, and no mention of Patrick Stewart coming back to Trek?  Shame shame.

Yeah! I've been at tennis/in recovery!

He swore he would never return again and again. I wonder what they're paying him? Also, if this takes place in real time (Picard is now retired), it's all going to be set in the south of  France and he'll talk obsessively about wine.

Quinto is in it?

Nope. All new cast. We're in the original timeline, too, so it'll be pre-Cage Pike and Spock. Or are we in the Mirror Universe-altered timeline now? Hard to say.

Ugh... Star Trek Discovery is now all about the Enterprise, Captain Pike, and young Spock. How can Star Trek fans seriously be excited about this show? It's high grade fan fiction.

The Orville remains strong. The most recent episode saw our (so far underused) doctor and her two boys on a shuttle trip with the show's analogue of Data. The shuttle crashes, they're attached by primitives, they must survive, the Orville rescues them in the nick of time. Again -- a standard TNG episode. But throw in the comedy, the special effects, and what (surprisingly) is becoming a good ensemble mixed in with the pure nostalgic TNG fun and... It was great!

Meanwhile, I'm now watching the Groundhog Day episode of Discovery because I have a pact with Satan to watch the Groundhog Day episode of every sci-fi series.

So...The Orville.

I have to re-evaluate this show. It's grown on me. More importantly, it's the Star Trek show we all wanted and needed.

Even when they ruthlessly rip off Black Mirror episodes it's still endearing...because TNG ruthlessly ripped off everyone, including themselves. And The Orville is basically TNG 2017 with quirky writers.

The most recent episode featured a holodeck!

So... "Why a prequel" conversation #478,072

I am about to give up on Discovery.

(Oh! And I love the idea of Vulcan nationalist fanatic terrorists who want to leave the federation.....NOT!)

Star Trek: Disaster has been renewed. Yay. More awkward prequel Event Horizon rip off shit staring largely unlikable people who constantly reference events from 10 years in their future.
