As I rewatch #StarTrekDiscovery’s second season, here are my mini-reviews! I love a lot of this season!

(Warning: I struggle with the coherence of the Red Angel plot. The nature of it seems to shift mid-way through the season—likely due to showrunner changes.) #StarTrek
“Brother” is gorgeously shot. Production design is intricate and artful. The background of Michael’s beginnings with the Sarek family is intriguing, especially the strange Spock dragon.

Pike quickly commands the screen with ease and integrity and Reno is a quippy addition!
“New Eden” is perfect #StarTrek which adds to the little-seen WWIII story, celebrates our innate desire to seek our knowledge in Jacob, a fascinating discussion of religion and science, clear growth from Burnham and fun ship action with a touching Saru/Tilly scene that is gold!

Did a tweet like this a few months ago, but I feel it even more acutely today. There are two ways to look at the #StarTrek franchise right now.

- #StarTrekPicard is killing it, absolute top of its game, with exciting possibilities
- #StarTrekStrangeNewWorlds is a huge hit…
…with tons of excitement about season 2, and season 3 seeming very likely.
- Animated #StarTrek has never been better, as current Trek appeals to all audiences.


- #StarTrekDiscovery was canceled, and it’s obvious it wasn’t what was planned.
- #StarTrek showrunners are pushing hard in tweets and the press for more for their shows. Trying to sway the studio?
- Merchandising and events, which really felt like they were on the upswing last year, have crashed HARD in 6 months.

I don’t know which story is the “real one”?

#Notevember Make-up Day 20: Woodwinds

The opening cue to Star Trek: Insurrection features some wonderful woodwind writing (especially double reeds) by Goldsmith

#Notevember Make-up Day 21: Character theme

Trek doesn’t always do leitmotifs, but “Without Help” from ST5 does a fantastic job juggling several: two for Sybok (including the 4 notes Goldsmith would use through Nemesis), the main theme, and the Klingons

#Notevember Make-up Day 22: Main Theme Phrase

Jeff Russo’s use of Archer’s Theme in Discovery Season 4 was a wonderful surprise

I still miss Michael's interactions with Sarek, Amanda, and Spock, but at least we're getting a touch more bridge crew. #StarTrekDiscovery Image
😭This plot is hitting hard. #StarTrekDiscovery Image
They have completely forgotten that Michael Burnham is Vulcan as well as Human. #StarTrekVoyager ImageImage

New season, (mostly) same chaotic commentary, slightly different format.

#StarTrekDiscovery S4EP04 - All Is Possible.
I didn't have internet access for a good chunk of the last few days. So while I was online I wasn't able to make or search for episode images the way I usually do. So this week's thread is going to be heavy on the commentary and light on the pictures.
Hopefully you still enjoy it.

If you missed last week's thread (in my usual recappy format) that can be found here.

New season (mostly) same chaotic commentary at our new posting time of Monday night.

I want to thank everyone that's been waiting for understanding, with work it's just a bit too hectic to try and knock out a recap by Saturday.

#StarTrekDiscovery S4EP02 Anomaly.
#DemTreks SMG looking gorgeous in the new promo poster for Star Trek D
Let's Begin!
The title is fitting considering how many times I typed 'anomaly' last week. We start as usual with the recap blitz. If you missed last week feel free to peruse the previous thread here.
First, can we appreciate that the #StarTrekDiscovery tag has a Captain's Chair next to it?

I don't know how long it will last but I love it.

Here we are again! New season (mostly) same chaotic commentary. #StarTrekDiscovery S4EP01 Kobayashi Maru.

Yes I love this gif. No I'm not tired of it yet.
I want to start by saying that I think the entire situation that's happening with the international release of season 4 sucks. I hope that everyone who wants to watch this season is able to do so as soon as possible.
I understand if you want to mute, unfollow, or block me to avoid #DiscoSpoilers. I'll try not to take it personally.

So yes I watched #StarTrekDiscovery.

I was super jazzed for it but super tired last night so I literally just watched it, just now.

Shitshow Bubblebath. 🖖🏿
For the 11 or so Trekkies....

*looks* Oh there are more of you now. Where did all you people come from anyway? 🤨

I still plan on doing my threads but to be fair with *gestures* everything that's going on I'll probably switch to more commentary than recap.
This way I can get more of my thoughts on the episode out there as my current work schedule doesn't allow me the flexibility to record on @BlackAlertPod as much as I'd like.

Man, why is it that every time there’s some kind of big discussion about anything related to new #StarTrek, everyone just behaves like complete lunatics? On one side you’ve got the “is this what Star Trek has become?” crowd hell bent on grinding their axe about what they hate.
And honestly, on the other side, waaaay too many defenders of current #StarTrek jump into hyper defensive mode. Even the most tepid “I’m not sure I like this” gets met with a “get over it, things change” tidal wave that is just so aggressive.
I get that’s largely a learned response from the early days of #StarTrekDiscovery where fans like me felt like we were maybe in a bit of a small minority and we needed to get loud and proud because the hate was just so relentless.

The decision to make Section 31 the next best thing to public knowledge in #StarTrekDiscovery was such a bad choice. Partially because it doesn’t fit what we know about the group from the other shows, but more because it just doesn’t work.
Section 31 works as the dark side to the Starfleet’s noble values if it is a secret. Because the cool nugget of an idea DS9 tried to explore is that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Somebody is doing the dirty work even in a 24th century utopia.
But if everyone in Starfleet knows about S31 - and there’s not a single Disco character who even feigns a “never heard of them” - then there’s nothing there to explore. In fact, you’re just saying Starfleet is consciously making morally suspect choices out in the open.

Mi opinión sobre #StarTrekDiscovery S03E06 - Scavengers:

Me gustó el episodio, fue divertido. Amé a Ryn, el andoriano, espero que sea un personaje recurrente.


Por otro lado, voy a seguir quejándome de que la serie quiere pintar a Georgiou como una cool anti-heroína de acción, cuando es una tirana genocida y canibal, sin importar cuantos flashbacks traumáticos nos quieran mostrar.

Espero que estos flashbacks y lapsus que está teniendo sean alguna suerte de "estar cambiando su mente con la de la Georgiou original". Cosas más locas han sucedido.

Mi opinión de #StarTrekDiscovery S03E05 - Die Trying:

Realmente disfruté este episodio, un clásico drama humano/científico de Star Trek, con buena dirección y actuaciones.


Amé ver a la USS Voyager J y la USS Nog (aunque me tuvieron que decir que estaba, porque la muestran de reojo), y todo el cuartel general de la federación y Starfleet. Me hubiese gustado conocer a algún representante del gobierno civil, pero al menos los mencionaron.

Vance y todo el aparato de Starfleet se supone que tenían que caernos mal, pero yo siempre entendí su postura. Star Trek tiene una historia de impostores, viajeros temporales nefatos, etc. Al final, todo salió bien.

Mi opinión sobre #StarTrekDiscovery S03E04 - Forget Me Not:

Fue un buen episodio, pero no tan bueno como el anterior. Me gustó la idea del episodio, la temática, y muchos momentos, pero no la ejecución general.


Siento que estuvo muy centrado en Adira, un personaje nuevo (aunque me guste), y dejó poco tiempo para explorar a la tripulación que ya conocemos, aún si lo intentaron. Si amé el uso de Culber.

Y mientras aprecio la inclusión de Gray (personaje y actor trans) y su interacción con Adira; el "veo a alguien que no está aquí físicamente" es muy parecido a la "amiga imaginaria" de Tilly de la temporada pasada.

Mi opinión sobre #StarTrekDiscovery S03E03 - People of Earth:

AMÉ completamente este episodio. Fue brillante, la ética y moral de Star Trek perfectamente reflejados. El mejor episodio de la serie hasta ahora, y uno de los tres mejores episodios de la serie.


Se está notando que, después del kilombo de showrunners cambiantes en la primera temporada y media, ahora tenemos un rumbo claro.


* Es un gran episodio independiente (tanto como lo permite este tipo de serie), pero avanza el plot de la temporada.

* Me gustó que el flashback del año de Michael no tomara gran parte el episodio.

Mi opinión sobre #StarTrekDiscovery S03E02 - Far From Home:

Disfruté el episodio, fue bueno ver a Saru a cargo, y a Tilly ganando más seguridad.


Además, más gente del futuro que todavía cree en la Federación, y nuestros personajes de Starfleet están aquí para avivar la llama de la esperanza.

Por como hablan los mineros y los mafiosos sobre Starflet, me hace pensar que Michael tuvo algún éxito esparciendo la palabra de Starfleet y la Federación en el año que lleva en esta era.

Nothing like smell of failure in the morning.
#StarTrekDiscovery was supposed to be the show that would turn CBS All Access into a roaring success. For them to broadcast it is a failure. It would be like a Netflix Original being shown on a regular cable/satellite TV station instead of the Netflix service.
Just like letting people watch the first episode of #StarTrekPicard on YouTube a week after it it was launched on All Access. That is NOT success, people.

Brilliant movie. 🍿 Will Smith is brilliant along side Stockard Channing & a young President Snow!

Plus a fabulous cameo from @IanMcKellen ImageImageImage
Also! 🙃 .. loving #StarTrekDiscovery as I do... I've been racking my brains on where I knew @albinokid in my childhood... and here he is 👇 alongside, amongst others... @jjabrams (on the left) in one of his, presumably few, acting roles before turning to the other side of the 🎥 Image

WHAT IN THE FLYING A!? Over the years, many assumptions have been made about the various #Starfleet insignia worn on the original #StarTrek and beyond thru to #StarTrekSNW . Follow Us as we take a deep dive into the show’s most distinctive emblems and the intentions behind them. Image
It begins with Gene #Roddenberry wanting #StarTrek to have a “distinctive emblem,” something immediately identifiable & also with merchandising potential. Here’s a memo he sent to art director Pato Guzman about the emblem on August 10, 1964 (during pre-production on pilot #1). Image
This thinking resulted in a couple of distinct #StarTrek emblems. One is the boomerang shape seen painted on the Enterprise and Galileo hulls. The boomerang also appears frequently as a piece of set decoration—most commonly behind flag officers whenever Kirk gets them on Zoom. ImageImageImageImage

#StarTrekPicard - A Rant.

After watching the most recent episode of #StarTrek #Picard I just feel I have to rage about this show in an overly-long Twitter thread where I put more thought into the series than the actual writers/producers of it did.

Be warned...
I was initially optimistic about #Picard. I think Michael Chabon is a great writer, I love Patrick Stewart, & I felt like the "course correction" we saw from Secret Hideout in S2 of #StarTrekDiscovery meant the show could be good.

But boy, was I wrong!
#Picard has been a MESS from the first episode. Bad plotting, horrendous dialogue, terrible characters, convoluted plot points, awful editing, & a complete disregard for both established #StarTrek lore & legacy characters has made this the WORST Trek series ever, IMHO.
