Re: Star Trek: Lower Decks

And as for the cartoon that seems like its aimed at people with a short attention spam, it is woeful. And yet here I am, with an attention span marginally superior to that of a gnat, daring to think that it's far from woeful. It's without question more entertaining than Picard or Discovery , in my ...

I did confirm, by the way: Star Trek: Lower Decks is canon.

But it really does look like the only ship that should have families aboard.

Having seen the trailer and basic story - I feel like the season needs a cameo from Kevin Sorbo ... for some reason.
That may be the single best one-liner you've ever delivered here.

Re: D U N E - Trailer

I've always thought reading Herbert was like watching the grass grow.

I laughed and felt a little more vindicated when I read, some weeks ago, that Tolkien hated Dune.

Trailer looks cool.

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 3

...managed just the one episode of the latest cartoon series as that was insulting to my intelligence. I have not yet felt insulted ... and when last I checked, possessed a not-inconsiderable intellect (false modesty aside). It's meant to poke holes in the pretentiousness of Trek , and seems to be ...

I have to be honest.

The show is growing on me. I enjoy it far more than I did Picard or Discovery.

Re: Star Trek: Lower Decks

Only elements of "Yesteryear" are considered canon, insofar as I know.

And the vastly inferior Star Trek: Discovery may have overturned that.

Re: Star Trek: Lower Decks

It's pretty cute if you don't take it seriously.

Should we really be surprised that it's a caricature of Star Trek?

Have they declared that this is canon?
