    That one was great, the others were just awful.

    So. SNL. It wasn't always Celebrity Jeopardy and Cowbell.

    Exactly. The episode with Pedro Pascal was pretty good overall though. He's pretty funny.

    This one didn’t make me laugh or anything at all but at least it wasn’t crass or disgusting.

    Latest one is actually pretty good, which isn’t surprising since it’s written by one of the main Prodigy writers

    It was nice, very meta. I still think the first two very Short Treks are the best.

    Kind of funny timing, Trek and Futurama both doing the "Turtles All The Way Down" routine in the same week.

    Easily my favorite one, the others were just okay imo. Wish they’d gotten Rios so all of Trek could have been represented.

    The last one will have Tendi observing the TOS Enterprise perhaps? With M’Ress going wild and Scotty playing the drums, and somehow Riker jazzing it up too? That’s my guess from what remains from the trailer. I’m wondering if it will be time travel instead of holodeck, since they just had a hologram episode. Anything else from the trailer we can expect in the final installment?

    "Holograms All the Way Down" is great. Tied with "Holiday Party". So far it's the evens over the odds!

    Yeah huh, only 2 and 4 have a writers credit in the video description.

    Odd.

    I think the most likely possibility is the audio was ad-libbed.

    Wikipedia lists writers for every episode thus far.

    Half power Shatner is still better than most things. Double power Shatner is actually a demonstration of the law of diminishing returns. I like my Shatner set somewhere around the Where No Man Has Gone Before / Corbomite Maneuver / Wrath of Khan (no, not that scene) settings.

    People (including the actors) often underestimate what a different skill voice acting is than live action.

    I thought about the fact that the TNG cast both here and on Lower Decks seemed very at home in voice over. Then I remembered that animation is where a number of that cast lived after TNG.

    And they did voice acting for star trek games.

    Yep. I loved them on Gargoyles.
