    Overall, I'd have to say the first season. It was batshit crazy, but there was something fun about it.

    The first half of season two is excellent. But the second half is a low-point for the franchise.

    The problem with the second season is that they seem to have a plan and then change their mind. For example in episode one, Spock, in his personal logs, says something like: "In the event of my death..." and that implies that he's about to do something dangerous that could get him killed but then in the very next episode you learn that he's committed himself to a psychiatric facility... I mean it really looks like they changed their minds between ep. one and two.

    Given what some psychiatric treatments look like at the time it could sound like death.

    He went there voluntarily. It would have been stupid of him to do so had he anticipated that!!

    Starfleet officers engage in missions all the time that could result in death. They still go voluntarily. How stupid is that?

    If you start with “Context is for Kings”, the first season is clearly better. Though it crashes and burns in the second half, just like season two.

    Well, one would hope that death is typically not an expected outcome of psychiatric treatment in the future.

    Expected? No. But, as an officer I would imagine that prepping a "In case I die..." letter is standard operating procedure.

    First contact missions, missions to destroyed bases, missions to investigate missing colonies, pretty much most plots in Star Trek episodes.

    As Kirk would say, "Risk is our business."

    It was obviously put there for the drama not because it's "SOP"... :rolleyes:

    No, you don't get it; I was talking about Spock, what kind of mission he was on? "I put myself in a bin and see what happens" mission? You call that a mission???

    He was on a mission where he felt he might be at risk. So, he wrote a letter in case something happen to him.

    I'm struggling to see the issue here.

    First, he was on leave.

    Second, getting himself committed is not a mission.

    Do you call anything a mission?

    A bathroom mission, a making yourself a sandwich mission...

    There are other things in life than missions.

    Spock was on a personal mission with major implications.
    He went for medical assistance to verify whether he was delusional or not, a logical choice considering what he was dealing with. When he was certain he was not delusional, he proceeded on to the next phase of what was his personal mission.

    "a preestablished and often self-imposed objective or purpose"

    You can argue with Miriam Webster, if you wish to alter the language.
