Quote from: San Antone on November 07, 2023, 10:19:32 AMJust started watching Star Trek: Discovery. After reading about it some, the series is split in two: S1+2 take place shortly after the end of Enterprise, but S3+4+5 are something like 900 years later. Interesting.I haven't bonded with any characters yet - but it is keeping my interest so far. Not a fan of the Klingon dialog with subtitles, sometimes hard to read on my tv.
Quote from: relm1 on November 08, 2023, 05:44:42 AMI had a hard time with this show. The one thing all trek needs in its DNA is good story. I just wasn't feeling it with Discovery though I like Jason Isaacs. Then at the same time came the far more trek like Orville. Do the stories get better? I do happen to really like Strange New Worlds which feels much more like the original series.
Quote from: Daverz on November 08, 2023, 07:05:19 PMDiscovery also didn't seem like a Trek show to me. Even at the start I was really turned off by the egregrious re-re-inventing of the Klingons. I bailed after a few episodes.
Quote from: DavidW on November 09, 2023, 07:23:30 AMIt gets a lot better once they jump forward to the far future. Just like most Star Trek shows it needed to figure out its identity and dramatically improve on the writing.
Quote from: Karl Henning on November 09, 2023, 07:34:25 AMI see your point, even as one who may like the first two seasons of TNG better than the consensus.
Quote from: milk on November 19, 2023, 04:45:12 PMHas anyone watched Strange New Worlds? I liked a bit of the first season but what annoyed me about the second season was something that sort of smacks of post-millennials in general: self consciousness. Self-consciousness is the enemy of Star Trek.
Quote from: relm1 on November 20, 2023, 05:19:01 AMI like the Strange New Worlds series. Sure, there is a musical episode, but the idea has been in the works for decades.The original series has a song from "Commander Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Lt. Nyota Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) in "The Man Trap", all the way to the operatic ambitions of Star Trek: Voyager's EMH Doctor (Robert Picardo), music has been an integral part of the lives of each Star Trek crew. And yet, it's only in 2023, 57 years after Spock and Uhura's duet, that Star Trek has finally pulled off a fully-fledged musical episode. However, a Star Trek musical has been a prospect since the 1990s, long before the groundbreaking Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical that heavily inspired Strange New Worlds' "Subspace Rhapsody."The S2 season finally was quite good and tense. The cast is terrific if you can get over a Jim Kirk who is quite different from Shatner both personally and physically. There is a good episode that tips its hat to the best Star Trek episode, "City on the Edge of Forever". S2 is worth watching but you might want to skip the musical one if you know you'll hate it. I didn't mind it.
