    I had a hard time watching season one, some episodes were a bit confusing, that was last year...I hope by watching season 3 unfold I'll fall back and watch the first two seasons...

    Here's a review of the first episode of season 3...

    ...

    Brand-new future, same old Star Trek: Discovery

    Stray observations

    [*]I like the idea that it’s a big shock that Andorians and the Orions are working together. Who could have predicted?


    [*]Maybe next week we’ll see how Discovery fares on its first few Michael-free days in the future? Hopefully the gang will get back together relatively quickly, at least.


    [*]The event that destroyed most of the dilithium crystals was called “The Burn,” but I’m sure that won’t be important later.


    [*]The big new future innovation, apart from the end of the Federation? Portable transporters. This seems like a very dumb idea, right down to the big fight sequence that has Book and Michael Nightcrawlering their way across the planet to escape pursuit. But hey, it’s handheld, so that means it’s cool.


    [*]“All time travel technology was destroyed after the temporal wars.” Hey, that sounds like a pretty cool story, why don’t you do a show about that.


    [*]“Hope is a powerful thing.” “Sometimes it’s the only thing.” Look, I know that sounds pretty, but I’m going to need a bit more than that, okay? Right now it’s a bumper sticker.

    This is a critical review of Star Trek Discovery, which I have to agree with, season three is a huge disappointment in my opinion...

    Yep, unfortunately Star Trek has been destroyed much like Star Wars has with Marvel now following this mess over the cliff...

    CBS extends contract with Alex Kurtzman...x...3

    Seth McFarland's show is much closer to a real Star Trek show than Discovery or Enterprise ever were. Voyager was fun until the last season when the director let his teenage son write the scripts. (I make that up because I can't think of any other reason the shows were so bad).

    One of the things I liked about Voyager was that Captain Janeway almost always held to Star Fleet principles in the face of sometimes overwhelming adversity, she made it work because of good writing...Yeah the last season was a bit weak, but also the Kason story arc seemed too drawn out in seasons one and two...The Kason were a bunch of regional thugs and I think they got too much attention, they could have wrapped that up quicker...Overall Voyager is entertaining to watch...
