    Again with the youtubers. I'm talking actual numbers, not zombies wanting to be led and making money for those saying exactly what they want to hear. Open your mind a little. Get out of the echo chamber. You are Kirok and you want to live!

    OK, well I tried.

    Perhaps there can be be a satisfying sequel to the BOBW cliffhanger this season? Part 2 was quite the anticlimax at the time… sleep… this could be part 3? :shrug:

    Again, you’ve claimed to know how it ends for sometime. You’ve actively campaigned for people to sign a petition to continue this era. Now you’ve changed your mind. I’m very confused.

    I have been rewatching TNG and am in season three and have been genuinely enjoying it. It’s good Trek.

    Nope. They played characters that changed since we last saw them, just like people in real life.
    They're not playing them any different in Season 3.

    I really do not get the YT thing. Unearned platform repeating talking points and mocking production teams. It gets fatiguing.

    I didn't know the specifics till a week ago. Was avoiding spoilers. I'm satisfied with how it ends.

    If somehow a Terry Matalas produced spinoff is magically greenlit, I'd be fine with it.

    However, if it ends here.. it's satisfying. We have such a massive library of great Star Trek behind us. This is a good bookend to it.

    Yesterday's Enterprise, The Offspring, The Defector, The Enemy, The High Ground, Who Watches the Watchers, Sarek, Best of Both Worlds, and many more. So many episodes that provide intellectual and philosophical discourse. Thats when Star Trek is at it's peak.

    Nice try, but Matalas was integral to season 2. He worked on it even before officially joining the producers group and didn't focus on season 3 till well into season 2.

    To broadly summarize:
    • Season 1: Creative ideas imperfectly (often badly) executed.
    • Season 2: Cliche ideas badly executed
    • Season 3: Cliche ideas well executed

    Cliche ideas are still cliche ideas.

    Succinct.


    There isn't anything particularly groundbreaking in the writing for S3, it's just a return to basic competence. A storyarc that actually pays off. A mystery box that is logical and well-planned out. Characters who are given appropriate dialogue true to who they are.

    This is Star Trek's "Avengers Endgame." The most memorable aspect of this season will probably be the climactic final battle they've built towards.

    Apparently it's the most welcome. Comfort food viewing at it's finest.

    The plot of Season 2 was basically his idea. It was his idea to bring back Q in the way that he did and his idea to spend the season in the 21st century. Goldsman has gone on record as being the one to come up with the Picard mom trauma angle. I think Matalas actually joined the show in late 2019 before season 1 even aired.

    Very much how I feel. I mean it is better written than those 2 IMO but I don't see a huge difference in the storytelling other than the plot involving Starfleet. I overall enjoyed the first 2 seasons so I'm ok with that (although season 2 is easily the worst New Trek season IMO), but I'm just not seeing this huge change in quality from other new Trek shows that others are talking about.

    I think 1&2 swung for the fences at times and struck out a few times as well. But they went for some very Trekkish stuff, too. 3 seems to be playing it safe. The callbacks, the old crew, The smorgasbord plot.

    I look at the first two seasons as analogous to a solo artist from a popular band doing an experimental album of material that is different from the classics produced with the band. Season 3 is the seasoned band getting back together and playing a tour of greatest hits.

    Neither approach is inherently better than the other, and will not appeal to all audiences in the same way. For me, greatest hits is what I am in the mood for and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

    It does feel that way, yes.

    True. He likes it better than Season Two, but Season Two is an incredibly low bar. Personally, I think the season was worth it for the scenes with Picard and Q together, but otherwise meh.

    BINGO. (Except for the thing I was cursing about earlier.)

    I don't understand why people want to be spoilered. Is the story that uninteresting to you?

    Unlike others, I'm still excited about whatever's going to happen.
