And the LDS Uniform color is WAY wrong too...retcon for LDS S4?
Context: As someone who tried to watch Lower Decks and did not make it to the finish of the season 1 premiere and only watched the last episode of season 1 (with heavy fast forward) to see the Titan from the novels… I had really low expectations for this episode. I was fully expecting to be giving this one 1 or 2. That all said. I really enjoyed this episode. It is solid. I still have no desire to watch Lower Decks, but this episode was good. I was really expecting a Move Along Home part 2.
So that brings me to my main point. It feels like Strange New Worlds either does a great job or a meh job with episodes. Still more hits then misses.
I have more faith now in the musical episode,
but I really hope we get more on the Gorn plot that was teased in the beginning of this season.
This episode is a solid 8.
Google says the quote/advice Pelia gives to Boimler was said by Cary Grant.
One of the actors said it was toned down so it wouldn't overpower the SNW uniforms.
I read in an article that they had to darken the color so that Boims wouldn't clash with the SNW people.
Ha yes....you beat me to it!!
If Geordi in Picard S3 could salvage the ENTIRE Saucer Section of the 1701-D; I'm sure they could find a piece of 1701 Hull that survived re-entry and the subsequent break up of the Genesis Planet.
I was momentarily confused because I went, “Kirk and Picard were the riders.” and then I realized he was referring to how he mounted the saddle, not the saddle itself. Riker maneuver!
It’s pretty cool that the move Frakes used because he had back problems became an iconic character element.
Going down memory lane, this is what I drew last year when the episode was first announced:
And this is what I drew last night after watching this utter masterpiece twice in a row:
I did until they killed the baby off at the beginning of Season 5. I just can’t. They shouldn’t have gone there.
Good Episode. I laughed several times.
Loved the Trelane/Q reference
8 out of 10 for me.
I'm wondering now if halo season 2 will ever come out
Maybe the F has one of the E’s old escape pods…
OMG -- that was frickin HILARIOUS! Loved, loved, loved it, chocked full of "oddly specific references". The Boimler-Spock experiment-gone-awry was awesome. Spock's smiling was over the top and somewhat reminiscent of his character in The Cage -- but wouldn't Boimler be all over early Spock being more emotional? I can see him citing "THE WOMEN!".
Anyway, keep 'em coming! Looking forward to the musical next!
Yes, I was looking at the Andorian.
And nothing else.
You missed the last meeting, so they sent me to tell you, “We ride at dawn”.
Eddie's been riding all night long ...
A thought just occurred, No Wesley 'Kirk' in this episode.
That should make at least a couple of fans happy.
Brilliant episode, one of the best 45 minutes of television this year for me. Solid 10. Full credit to Jack Quaid and Tawny Newsome for bringing their animated characters to life. But it was a fun episode and I liked it a lot.
Only negative is Spock's smile... I may never go to sleep!!
That was fun-tastic!
My only complaint is that for me Boimler & Mariner didn't translate perfect to live-action. Like - it's the same voices. But then being cartoons, my brain has already created a different version of them before.
But hell - this is SNW. We're used to familiar characters looking different than expected.
I am still absolutely in awe they actually did this. And it was exactly what I was hoping for.
Time for me to catch up on Lower Decks, got way behind on that....
I mean, Yellowstone is still not that old of a show, especially season 5 of it. I didnt imagine getting spoiled on this forum....
EDIT: okay, I'm not the spoiler police by any means. Just kind of weird place where i didn't think I would get spoiled on anything with such a different type of show as Yellowstone compared to Trek.
Well, since the refit 1701 was "almost an entirely new ship", I'm sure they had plenty of pre-refit pieces of TOS Enterprise somewhere.
