    My instinct for most things on YouTube that have “Its so bad!” in the thumbnail is to promptly ignore them.

    I would agree with that but I gave the video a chance and he makes a few good points. I mean season 2 was a bit all over the shop

    Season 2 might have been flawed, but I don't see the need to watch a YouTube video that's longer than most season 2 episodes just to hear someone rant about those flaws.

    According to my dream last night, the TNG crew reunites to save Sisko for some reason I can’t remember.

    Avery Brooks returned.

    And also T’Pol showed up looking like she hasn’t aged a day.

    Honestly, I would have had even less patience for an hour long YouTube video in my youth

    Patience for it? No. Willingness to listen to it and argue about it? Yeah, that was definitely me.

    But what about the spin off show now that we have a grown up Scarlett Pommers?

    Naomi was one of the less objectionable things about some episodes of VOY but...no.

    I mean, I don’t have a problem with her. She’s just a character I think would be better to appear on a Seven of Nine spin-off show if one gets made.

    But how long could you keep that going and keep it engaging and interesting?

    I got the impression the Federation didn't think much of 7 of 9 when Voyager got home.

    No-one said it would take place before Picard. Seven is a Starfleet Commander in Season 3.

    well yeah, Seven says as much in S2. I think she said Janeway all but resigned to try and get her into Starfleet but they wouldn’t bite.

    As for how long you could keep a Seven show interesting? I dunno, that’s a better question for the people clamoring for it.

    About as well as Picard (The show has now been reduced to bringing back the TNG cast for S3! :rolleyes: )

    It's not going to be solely about Seven (hopefully, Raffi and Elnor will be back). There's a ton of dramatic possibilities depending upon which direction Seven is going to go after S3.

    Which was always the plan, to bring back some of the cast, it wasn't 'reduced' to anything.

    It was also always the plan to have just 3 seasons so it's not like it's a desperate attempt to get viewers or anything.

    In case we didn't know the directors, Part 2 of TrekMovie's podcast with Matalas confirmed them all.

    3x01/3x02: Doug Aarniokoski
    3x03/3x04: Jonathan Frakes
    3x05/3x06: Dan Liu
    3x07/3x08: Deborah Kampmeier (I'm 90% sure this is who he said?)
    3x09/3x10: Terry Matalas

    If IMDB is correct, these episodes will be Terry's 5th and 6th directing credits.

    He directed 4 episodes of 12 Monkeys.
