    Yep, I had no idea it was airing tonight.
    Will get to it when my Vampire schedule allows.
    I expect to enjoy it though, the Mudd stuff has been fun.

    I still haven't seen the Saru one yet. I need to watch these two before the season 2 premiere.

    No worries.
    Drunken Revelry on New Years Eve always usually messes mine up.

    That was fantastic & fun - I'm definitely looking forward to McMahan's Lower Decks series now, and just placed an order for Warped.

    One of the androids was wearing Mudd's TOS outfit

    Loved this one. Each of these Short Treks has been so different, I really like the diversity. This one was clever and funny and felt like a Gene Coon TOS episode.

    I found that delightful.

    The "I, Mudd" outfit made me intensely curious if this is supposed to take place after that episode, or if the outfit was just an in-joke. I think it makes more sense if this was his escape (or, potentially, a botched escape that resulted only in hundreds of Mudd replicants being let loose upon the galaxy) than if this is the secret backstory to "I, Mudd" and he lied through his teeth to Kirk about how he ended up trapped on the android's asteroid.

    I wouldn't expect him to not lie to Kirk. If he thought he could get away with it.
    Twenty counts of attempted homicide? I wonder who else beside the DSC core staff?

    Or he just likes that style of outfit, he also wore a similar outfit in his TAS appearence

    The Tellarite (he was in the trailer, this isn't a spoiler) is played by the same actor who played the Tellarite admiral in Season 1.

    Uhhhh.... that threw me a loop. And it killed some time. It's not bad but I don't think it's as good as the other shorts. I give it a 6.

    Yes, you read that right.
