    The Aenar are known to void themselves upon loss of consciousness, reducing their weight by up to 25%. :shifty:

    I know the Andorian/Aenar makeup is more TOS inspired but I wish the antennas still moved like in Enterprise

    Yeah, I physically cringed when I saw that. It was just a terribly executed shot and so obvious. They could have done without the dummy and the slow mo.

    Agreed. It's the only real gripe I have about Hemmer.

    There may be hope for DSC, but PIC's last season is already done (with the possible exception of some post production).

    True. Let's hope getting feedback from SNW being under production at the same time resulted in some good changes happening at the other series.

    Same. Those shows just did not resonate with me.

    Yeah that slomo was out of place and total cringe. I actually lowered my score from an 8 to a 7 mostly because of it. The directors/show runners/editors should have seen how cringe the dummy was, and the slomo just called attention to it.

    I’m loving No1 though.

    I’m starting to think it’s his speaking cadence. The actor seems to be trying to channel Nimoy, and in some way he gets it, but his cadence seems to arbitrarily speed up during parts of his dialog, and it seems strange.

    I did back then in 1987 and almost quit watching too. But it was the first live-action Trek on TV in 18 years; and I kept hoping it would get better, but definitely in the first season it didn't.

    Not if it was known that the genetic engineering they did would allow her to pass as a human; which she probably realized, and that's when she decided to take a chance and enlist in Starfleet to see if she would make the cut.

    Oh, it can still totally tank on us. It is CBS Trek in the 21st century and that's got a mixed track record at very best. But we work with what we have and so far...so very good.

    "Children of The Comet" was more science fiction than Trek usually manages in a couple of decades.

    Didn't notice the dummy.

    Do you know how OP that power would be?

    Well, when those 3 episodes have been the 3 best live action Trek anything we've gotten in the past 20 years, it's pretty easy to do. I enjoy both Picard and Diso a lot, but this so completely blows them away, that I can pretty confidently put this above them in my ranking, even after just three episodes.
    I'm curious what you mean by that.

    Maybe for the TNG era Serveaux was in charge of diagnostic protocols and accidently reversed the scale.

    (Don't hit me, please!)

    You're not wrong.

    Me neither. I was too focused on what they wanted me to focus on: the scene, and then the beautiful sets. Now that I know, we'll see.

    I didn't even know there was a dummy in the episode. So that shows how properly engaged and distracted I was by the episode. Good on them.

    She thought the phaser was set to stun, but it was actually set to "Build-A-Bear".
