Because it's a good sight gag.
They did. Tom mentions Planet Ten in Body and Soul.
Finally got around to watching, this was very bla to me. It was fine, but of all the Short Treks it seemed to have the least reason for being. Personally, more Harry Mudd is just not a thing I need.
Also, weird how "Magic..." twisted itself into knots at the end to deposit Harry in circumstances that set him up TOS, then none of those elements are present here. It makes the ending of that ep feel even more tortured.
I thought the performances of the Tellarite and the other heavy-prosthetic alien bounty hunter were way off, also. They were acting big to get out from under the makeup, but they overshot, it was just too much (or maybe producers laid too much "alien" on their voices in post? Or both? This production team is clearly still working on finding the right levels with the aliens...)
The short bounty hunter who got lost trying to find her own ship, what species was she?
She looked like a Klingon with severe scarring to me.
I did love that one of the Mudd bots was wearing his TOS costume.
At first, I thought she might be a Cardie.
I bought it given the whole tone was a little more comedic than Trek normally is, like one of the lighter episodes of TOS. It was goofy and that just added to the comedy. The whole thing was practically a Bug Bunny cartoon, it would have been complete if Mudd had turned to the camera at the end and said, "Ain't I a stinker?"
I thought about that, but her head wasn't elongated enough.
She isn't a Klingon.
I think she was a new alien, I didn't recognize the way she looked and Memory Alpha doesn't have a species listed for her.
I thought it was a fun nod to the end of "I, Mudd" and the multiple Stella's. "HARCOURT!! Harcourt Fenton Mudd! Have you been drinking again?"
IDK - it came across exactly like an old 'Loony Tunes" cartoon when they had all the Mudds saying "If I had any money, I'd be sipping Jippers on a beach somewhere..."; over and over (with some of them in unison)
So? Old Looney Tunes is funny shit.
Yeah, I thought the Tellarite performance was off as well somehow. The makeup also didn't appear as menacing as Mirror-Voq's cohort earlier in Season 1, although in that case it was less a performance than just a thug-like presence there.
I had kinda hoped that the masked woman bounty hunter, who turned out to be Mudd himself, would actually have been Stella living with Mudd and taking part in his schemes willingly for a time.
IDK - If there's one thing about Mudd that's consistent; he's ALWAYS running AWAY from Stella.
Have you seen "I, Mudd"?
Well, I think you pretty much described it above. The Short Trek episode was pretty obviously a nod to that episode (right down to the multiple android copies repeating the same thing), except this time Mudd wins.
You say that likes it’s a bad thing.
