    Wait... you mean... the fandom is NOT a monolith? Huh...

    Mind. Blown.

    Meant genuinely, but that is a ringing endorsement for me. I suppose I'd better watch it, because so far I've been on the same page as you in terms of SNW.

    I like that after only three episodes, I can name all the characters shown in that Tweet pic without a second thought.
    :biggrin:

    (I'm still struggling occasionally with all the DISCOVERY characters) :(


    There's a very special place where that kind of data can be stored ...

    But I'm not sure he'd be able to let it pass if I shoved it in there. ;)

    Same here. It speaks to the level of personal investment we've been allowed to develop by the storytelling. Much of Discovery's bridge crew are virtually indistinguishable from the rest of their bridge stations.

    I wish I knew what Charts' endgame was.

    He shows us enough charts and we say, "Yeah, you're right! We shouldn't like DSC, PIC, or SNW! Screw New Trek!"? Well, no, it doesn't work like that. Other people don't decide what I like, I decide what I like.

    Now, I happen to like SNW and look forward to it every week. But, if I didn't, it sure as Hell wouldn't have had anything to do with whatever Charts posted. And if it were just charts that would be one thing. But "#2 is bad!" and the like is pure spin.

    The only thing I've learned from all the charts is that now I know that if I'd been old enough to vote in 1992 (or 1996 for that matter), I definitely wouldn't have voted for Ross Perot. I'd be like, "Enough with the damn charts already!"

    He could just be trolling people. Stirring people up to get a reaction and a bit of attention.

    With how often he's doing it, that's probably a given.

    "Lookie at me, I can prove that New Trek sucks..., with Math!" :rolleyes:

    Plus those numbers he showed are just for watching on cable. I watch on Crave since it's on there at like 5-6AM, it doesn't air on cable until 9PM.

    ... and I (as well as many others) stream it, so his numbers aren't even close to being actual 'eyes on' the Trek shows.

    But the actual numbers would mess up his Chicken Little act.

    Imagine liking both Star Trek and Star Wars. Gross.

    The best social commentary and space action is ground with the hips.

    I might watch Star Wars one day, I have never seen it… I wouldn’t know where to begin though as I hear that the universe is quite expansive and complicated! I wonder if I would like it or not? My friends sometimes accidentally get me Star Wars gifts because they think that I like it, they often confuse it with Star Trek.:shrug:

    Back to SNW, does anybody have the weekly Neilson viewing figures/ratings yet? :D

    What tipped you over? I'm still not quite there yet. The third was good, probably the best, but I haven't been blown away yet.

    As it stands I feel I prefer SNW to PIC, but I prefer DSC to SNW.

    There really isn't that much Star Wars to watch, especially compared to Trek. Three movie trilogies, two stand-alone movies and a handful of small tv shows and cartoons. The only way I would consider it an 'expansive' universe is if you're counting all of the books and comics, too, and by that standard almost any franchise can be expansive.

    If you're really interested you can just start with the movies in the order they were released. There's nothing complicated or hard to follow about it.

    I also got SW toys and stuff and had to pretend to be happy instead of trying to explain :D

    Just watch the first one from 77 or whenever it was, and if that's not bad for you, the next one (which is supposed to be amazing). If the 3rd one still keeps you going, watch the first of the prequel ones, and so forth :D
