It was also WAY too spoilery.

Figured this thread would appreciate this more than the funny images one.

Haha

HA! I actually just watched this yesterday. Patrick Stewart’s performance was fantastic.

Here's an interesting short biography of the "Native American" consultant that Rick Berman hired for Star Trek Voyager:

I am going to go into my spreadsheet this weekend and put up some more week summaries. But just a general update. I am on Star Trek Enterprise Season 2. I have 84 hours of content left and am officially 8 days ahead of schedule.

So I’ve been slowly making my way through various Star Trek series since 2014 or so.
I can’t handle the camp of the original series, but at this point I’ve seen TNG, DS9, and Voyager; although it’s worth noting I’ve skipped episodes that have less than 1.5 stars on Jammers Reviews, which I’ve generally found to be a pretty good indicator of quality.

I’ve started in on Enterprise now and am about 4 episodes in...and I’m not really digging it. I get that this is supposed to take place way back when starfleet was just getting started, but the repeated bad decisions and gung ho attitude of the captain and crew are really rubbing me they wrong way.

Does this dynamic change at all as the series progresses, or is it just constant repeats of “hotheaded humans continually ignore Vulcan pleas to slow down and think their actions through”?

There are some good episodes, but there are a lot of meh in there too. I am on the second season which is better then the first. The third season goes in a completely different direction which I did not like but at least it is a change of pace. I did love the 4th season though which is unfortunate since it got cancelled just as it was getting good.

One of my biggest gripes with Enterprise was the casting of Bakula. Don't get me wrong, I like him, and he fills the role of idealistic, kind explorer well. The writers just don't actually keep him there. He is the least intimidating captain ever. Every time he gets angry and yells at people (this ramps up a LOT in season 3) I just can't take it seriously. Bakula is too nice.

So next month we get two new animated Short Treks and... wow, if you're like me and discovered TAS on Nickelodeon back in the day, this invokes all the nostalgias:

But TAS was so terrible....

There were a few good ones.
