    Level of care of any of @Char Kais posts: zero.

    I’d create a chart but… meh.

    Matched only by the number of people here that DGAF.

    Pike at his current high point reminded me of the low point of another ship commander.

    I really like Pike's hair colour.

    This has officially topped TNG as my favorite Star Trek show ever.

    AND WE ARE ONLY 2 EPISODES IN. :eek:

    I mean, granted, my love for TOS and TNG was largely retroactive. I was born decades after TOS, and TNG ended before I could become a regular viewer (I was only 5 when it went off the air). DS9 and Voyager both failed to entertain me, Enterprise showed some promise but also largely failed. Discovery Season 1 and 2, Picard Season 1, and Lower Decks are the closest to viewing a new Star Trek show each week and actually enjoying it I ever got to. Prodigy was ok but I'm not the target audience. So far I haven't felt like there is a Star Trek show that checked off every box of what I want in a weekly series.

    Until now.

    Honestly, I just really have a hard time waiting for new episodes. I tear up every time I see the intro or hear the end credits theme. This show is perfect for me: it is relevant, it is fun, it is optimistic, funny, dramatic, lighthearted, awesome. It's literally the most perfect Star Trek show I've ever seen. It tops every other iteration of Star Trek in every way possible. This is just plain MY Star Trek.

    So if they started a Pike series from the very beginning (when he took command from April) would SNW Season 1 be considered Season 9 or Season 10?

    He only posts numbers that he can spin in a negative way, and even then it’s iffy.

    SNW is number 2 in the US after some HBO show I’m blanking on.

    I can't believe they replaced Pike with this "Kirk" guy. It ruined the show.

    What's next, replacing Sinclair on B5?

    My opinion of SNW is that I'm sold on it. For me, "Ghosts of Illyria" did for SNW what "Context Is for Kings" did for DSC. I'm finally passed the "we'll see... " stage.

    3 for 3 - I REALLY like SNW a lot so far!
    What a fun combo of: "sci-fi story of the week" interwoven with a "message of the week" and character spotlights and arcs.
    Can't wait for more, especially love all the "NEW" characters and I'm including (Una, M'Benga, Chapell) and not just Laan; Ortegas, Hemmer in them. Even the lecagy Pike/Spock/Uhura ones are interesting for a change.

    You won't be feeling it anymore if Trek bulldozes your new Star Wars show in viewership next week Lord Sidious.
