    It took SNW to show me I was just coasting with the other new Treks. I like em all to varying degrees but SNW is where the heart is at.

    It's so nice to have a different story every week.

    Loving Spock at the end there: “I’m arming us with knowledge.”

    This show makes me smile pretty much the entire way through.

    A little bit. But still more retro somehow. Clunkier.

    I mean, it could be. It's just that doing so would take an amount of money that Paramount is not willing to spend.

    Honestly, the idea that sensors are able to instantly detect things strikes me as an unrealistic trope. It makes sense to me that ships could just sneak up on one-another in the vacuum of space, particularly if they have more advanced technology. The Shepherd appeared to be at least 50-100 years more advanced than the Enterprise, so I can buy that they might just be able to absorb the Enterprise's sensor beams.

    6 looks vaguely like the right one, not 10, and 10 doesn't look like either of those...
    What you put on 10 reminds me of the VOY and LDS intros ;)

    The Lower Decks parody would be "Naked Nova Time".

    I wonder if him saying that the accident happens in 10 years is a clue that he does alter things since it happens in 7 years. 2259 and Menagerie is 2266.

    There's a fucktonne of middle ground between perfect and intentionally wiping out all life on a planet...

    I'd follow the Prime Directive the way I'd follow a "No Obscenities" rule during a verbal argument. Poorly but on the surface I'd agree to the rules, with lots of violations and gleeful every time I did it.

    Hemmer is SNW's version of Worf, Teal'c and Data. He may seem tough on the outside but on the inside he's a teddybear.
