Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Well, there went the argument. I have no response to you anymore. You didn't say anything in your last post in response to me Jace other than to be belligerent. So, yeah. This argument is pretty much done. But because I'm a glutten for punishment and have a keyboard and am not just on my cell, let'...

Re: The Orville

it's that much a pastiche of The Next Generation . Up to date with this season now and the last episode where the doc falls in love with the android was like a rehash of so many tng episodes. or the android human relationship Sums up my entire problem with the show. It's a fine show. But I've seen ...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Picard's seemed to be some sort of variant, without the instantaneous effect a Vulcan neck pinch has. Seven possesses the enhanced strength I believe is necessary to deliver it. Odo would likely have the same. Data obviously does, along with computer-like precision (which likely aided Seven as well...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

I don't see the point of this anymore. I don't care what Gene would think. Gene hated my favorite Trek, Star Trek The Wrath of Khan. I don't lean on the Trope of thinking He was the final arbiter of Trek. So wait... your favorite Trek is the Trek where an insane Genetically Manipulated Superhuman a...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Okay, so agree with pretty much all JM has to say, Tilly's weight being especially egegious in the recent episode when she stopped for a time to argue with nothing and then still won a foot race. That's called Sprinting while everyone else is doing marathon speeds. But I wish to raise another point...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Opinion noted and respectfully, yet firmly , rejected. "Immensely intelligent and talented" ... check. Spock as a brother ... check. Can deliver a Vulcan neck pinch ... check. Is almost immediately given an X-O's slot after actions that should have kept her out of the service forevermore ... check....

Re: The Orville

Since I'm no longer the contentious curmudgeon I was historically, I'll not rise to the "old man" bait. :P Wasn't bait. Just a friendly jab since I haven't talked to you in ages. ;) I'm not exactly the fresh faced spring chicken I used to be. Well that's not precisely true... I don't age. Nor do I ...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Jace, I cannot help but feel you are missing the point. There has been, at least until now, a connecting theme in all of the Trek shows. A theme of hope, exploration, and self-discovery. All of which are present in Discovery and to miss them, you'd have to go in TRYING to miss them. Ever since the ...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

so all the people who ever came in contact with them simply forgot they existed and told no one, and people simply forgot ? Why would you wear a badge then if you had the authority and were clandestine...to me it makes zero sense. do american secret agencies go around with a badge on their lapel sh...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Why would S31 have their own badges? Why are they operating even close to that open? Why is it people seem to treat S31 simply as Starfleet Intelligence Black Ops? It's not. S31 is a covert organization with independent power that operates within Starfleet, but is not a full part of Starfleet. This...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

I readily grant that Season Two is already vastly superior to Season One (which I have seen in its entirety and for many reasons despise), though it still suffers from a Mary Sue heroine (with whom I am far less impressed than is Michael above), subtle and not-so-subtle SJW undercurrents, some seri...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

I find it is still heavy SJW themed and I don't like Mike anymore, but I think the tone is so vastly improved that I can't help but give them some credit. "SJW themed" .... I mean... really? What exactly about this show is "SJW themed" and why do you use that term as a pejorative? I mean all of epi...

Re: The Orville

Discovery , despite the fact that it does seem to be gradually finding its footing, in particular this season, still does not have a Trek feel about it to many old-school fans. But see, this is where they lose me... NONE of the other Star Trek series really feel like any of the others. TOS was a pr...

Re: The Orville

The Orville is fine, but it has no identity of its own and the writing suffers because of it. I do not understand anyone who claims it's "MORE" Star Trek than Discovery is. By definition of the name and setting alone.. no it's not. The writing on Discovery has been phenomenal. The writing on Orville...

Re: Is anyone feeling ...

I enjoy the Orville. I truly do. But it isn't Star Trek. In fact, The Orville doesn't seem to know what it is. Is it Science Fiction? Is it Comedy? Is it Comedy Sci Fi? The whole thing seems to depend on the episode. And worse than that, it seems to depend on the scene inside the episode. The Orvill...
