The writers wouldn't do that because there is one thing stronger than both Humans and Klingons: The Intergalatic Sisterhood.

See women know how to run shit properly. That's why whatever captain cucks Saru out of the chair will be female, or be killed the same episode he is introduced so that Michael can take the lead and get promoted by next season. She will become to Star Trek what Rey is to Star Wars now.

Yeah, it was kind of strange and awkward they didn't just promote Saru to full captain.

I've been thinking about how utterly Michael Burnham ruins what potential this show actually has.

I actually like Saru, and a couple of the lesser characters, but they're given almost no attention, because everything is centered on a lead character with no personality.

Finding out a regular cast member is actually a spy from the mirror universe could have been an interesting twist in any other Star Trek show, but because the focus is on Michael, and how she feels, and how everything effects her, I don't care.

Also this. Saru is an interesting character, I can see why they went with the Kelpians as a new race now. He is biologically a fish out of water and he tries to deal with it not through headstrongness like Michael, but through actual research and observation. Basically he is reals>feels.

Also the lack of any interaction between One-eyed ginger girl (who was obviously on Burnham's ship when it got fucked) and Burnham is like they missed out a massive fucking source of conflict.

Also unironically, I kinda like the Chief Engineer.

632ee0  No.18559


It's inconsistent, but honestly I like the good old jolly space pirate Klingons who like drinking and gambling so much more than the nuKlingons who are basically ISIS. It was good to see some of that.


They had to let her go so she hands over the detonator. I'm sure she will return season 3 or whatever, probably as a Romulan general, Tasha Jar style.


It would have been better if the Klingon bitch didn't drop out like that, it would have been way more interesting to have her as a constant crew member. Would have been cool, especially since she wouldn't be cucked by the Feds like Worf was. Now, besides Saru, there is not a single alien in the crew, which makes it boring.


To imprison her was retarded in the first place, she didn't cause the war. Also, I didn't like that the Federation would have an extensive prison system with labor camp planets in something which is basically and utopian communist society with post-scarcity.


Literally everybody I see wants them to be involved or at least get some lines. Maybe they will recognize the feedback.


Don't forget that they still play the same mainstream R'n'B and electro shit at parties in the 23rd century.


She is good looking but the actress has a very restricted set of emotions. When she's in Vulcanboo mode, she's convincing, but she can't play human emotions. For some reason she did a better job at the Walking Dead.


it would have been better if the gay engineer didn't recover 100% but stayed in some weird mutated form. Now what was the point of that? Also, they uninstalled the spore drive which I also don't understand.

This. It is suggested just before the mirror episode that his personality was radically changing and the shit was affecting him on a mental leve: but nop is not brought up after he sees his dead husband in the network (btw was that him just self-projecting or is it implying the thingy network is actually an afterlife of some kind?).

So after watching through the tumor that is STD it may as well be called the Michael show. She comes across as a writer self insert and everything has to be about her. She is just so fucking unlikable and boring to watch each time she is on screen it is like watching a wooden plank.

While I did sort of like Saru and Lorca, even the Emperor to an extent they and no other character for that matter got enough screen time to justify giving a rats ass about them. Has to always cut back to Michael-Sue.

Also the plot is a non stop trainwreck, blundering through the Prime Universe and fucking up the Mirror Universe I mean honestly how do you fuck up the MU? with each time you think something interesting may happen it's almost like they ran out of ideas on where to go and immediately drop it.

The whole Fed-Klingon war is a trainwreck and the whole ending of the show is a case of blueballs. It should have ended with the destruction of Earth and/or Qo'nos. Instead we got "lel no, have some gurrl powah to solve everything!" The last episode was like they ran out of money, time and story so they wrapped everything up hastily. To add further insult they threw in the Enterprise as if it was a big deal but the model they showed looks retardedly out of place in their aborted version of Trek, it was just cringeworthy. I mean as season finales go this has to be up there with some of the worst.

Now as I strongly suspected the whole premise of STD was actually an attempt to cover the Four Years War but the studio didn't want to do that cause it would cause a fuckton of backlash over Axanar. For fags unfamiliar with the premise of the Four Years War and Axanar, it was when the Klingons had enough of Federation expansion and decided to kick their shit in also Klingons were having internal troubles relating to their government so no better way to distract from internal problems than a good war. Feds were getting their shit kicked in till they adapted their strategy and actually built ships that could combat the Klingons, not just pure explorers. Klingons were arrogant and assumed easy victory but the Feds were able to produce starships and Commanders that could match them, which in turn made the Klingons actually respect the Federation as a worthy opponent since Klingons love a good fight above all else. While Feds were able to sort of hold the line eventually the real turning point was the Battle of Axanar where Garth of Izar absolutely kicked the Klingon's shit in there is a few theories floating around that the Klingon High Council actually engineered their defeat since keeping the Federation around as an enemy would keep the Klingon Empire from falling apart. Thus you get the whole Cold War thing going on during the TOS with both sides ready and eager for a potential round two. STD shits absolutely all over this.

Now excuse me I have to throw up.

I'll admit to being somewhat unfamiliar with the Four Years War, but that sounds too interesting and Trek to be shown on Game of Thrones: STD. I mean, do the Klingons even have double dicks?

I think it was implied early on STD but it's just ridiculous.

I agree. It's a shame because we will never see Axanar and the events of that period.

>She comes across as a writer self insert and everything has to be about her.

STD is what could've happened if Roddenberry had carte blanche to make a show about hims Wesley.

The problem is that a show focused on a "perfect" character stops any chance of character developpment for the main protagonist AND the side characters, so the viewer can't feel enough to care about her.

I kind of agree with Rich about both The Orville and STD having uninteresting leads, but I think Mercer's got a better chance to grow and become his own character compared to Michael.

On the whole 'bringing the Enterprise back at the end of the season' thing, that's why I didn't like the idea of Michael being Spock's adopted sister- because I knew if they were willing to do that, they'd be willing to do stupid twists like that. I don't think they'll bring in Kirk if only because that might be too much even for them, but then again, I could be horribly wrong.

I agree, Kirk is too big to be on the show. I bet we're going to see Spock on the Discovery. Burnham will ridicule him and he'll bow down and apologize for doing nothing then he'll praise her for being smarter than him (like Saru).

Yep. She is the only main character, she's written as a perfect strong and smart female character.

Everytime someone criticize her, they end up apologizing and complimenting her. She started the klingon/federation war, went to the Mirror Universe, brought back a MU version of her dead Captain (who is literally worse than Hitler) only to let her free by the end of the season. In the last 10 minutes of the final episode Burnham gets her rank back and her file erased.

Something we were just talking about on halfchan that's related to STD and TOS.


and the archive link


basically, the question of if TOS has a place in Trek canon anymore, because of the style and plot developments of STD and it's own internal canonical differences (as the OP there puts it, "canon in spirit but not in practice"). And if it is, can it be considered strong canon? I've read some thoughts about this topic before here, but I figured you'd like to see what plebbitors think about it and what you have to add, especially now that we're through season 1 of STD.

for some of them there, yes, it does seem like it. It's such an odd thing to come up with. I've seen plenty of franchises that reject series that completely fuck with canon, be it the plotlines or asthetics or characters, but for some reason, here they think it's the OG stuff that needs to be overwritten, despite it being the entire core of the franchise.

Is it really so unbelievable that such a thing might come back into fashion a few hundred years from now? We really have no idea what they'll be wearing by then, and it's kind of silly to assume modern ideas about appropriate fashion choices are going to last forever. The goofy hipster hairstyles will probably look just as funny to people 50 years from now as the beehive dos in the original series.

I remember in particular nichelle nichols and the other female cast of that era basically DEMANDING that they make the skirts shorter.

the women wanted to be objectified, because it's normal for women to want to be desirable. the current feminist era has only changed in one way: it wants men to also desire ugly disgusting fatties equally as much as the highest standard of beauty, and when we don't they call it misogyny.

I vaguely recall some star trek themed photo shoot some sitcom cast did where the women where actually bitching that they had to wear tng style jumpsuits instead of the old miniskirts.

Honestly, bitching about the old outfits being sexist seems retarded in a time where women walk around wearing skin tight leggings that show off way more than a miniskirt and dark tights ever would.

I mean to say I remember that from an interview with the female cast members I read. I wasn't there myself but, yano… grammar and shit.

Women were expected to dress conservatively back then. Mini skirts were considered rebellion against the big bad patriarchy that wanted you covered up. The 18 year old blue haired feminist doesn't even understand what it is they think they're rebelling against.

I wouldn't rule out Netflix quite yet, even taking into account what a massive dumpster fire STD was financially as well as creatively. Netflix is starving for new content of any sort, so they aren't very picky about the quality of the shit they put on their platform. That's why CY+3 Netflix is clogged with shows about pansexual black women and documentaries about mad scientists pioneering the field of hormone abuse and genital manipulation. Besides, even if Netflix's standards weren't low enough for STD they're probably contractually locked in at the moment.

The Sorosflix in my country is filled with feminist documentaries. I only use it to rewatch DS9, TOS and ENT. The other streaming companies offer the same shitty content. Netflix used to be a good alternative to piracy until they complied to the demands of the european channels and added a region lock.

Stranger Things is mostly ripped off from a 2010 movie (released in some places in 2012) called "Beyond the Black Rainbow", made by the same director as the recent "Mandy".

That's what I think too. Midnight's Edge said that originally nuPike was written as a christian who prays before making a big decision. It sounds a bit out there but it could've made the character more interesting.

That said, 15% of approval is quite scary because it's not the pilot it's 5 episodes into the second season. I wish someone would leak the original scripts.

It's still STD, and Pike's a white male, so I'd assume that the praying was actually intended to make him seem creepy and dangerous. Which means the episodes were probably panned for being too fucking woke for even a normal audience to swallow rather than the other way around

Nobody with any power (now or in the near future) wants "prime" Star Trek as-is. Even the fans who managed to work on the show and love it routinely expressed misgivings about the state of Star Trek canon. No matter who gets it, they're going to jump at the chance to memory-hole a lot of things from TOS through Nemesis. Might as well get ahead of it.

Personally, i'm still partial to the idea of bringing back the TNG cast for a proper sendoff that will bootstrap a new series and to do this by partially remaking All Good Things… with new footage using the actors at their current age. Make it 10 episodes.. maybe the entire first season… which should give the writers enough time to cleverly show what is still canon (and what isn't) and why. This is going to rub a lot of people the wrong way, but they should at least disavow all of the TNG films, which would include Generations, and allow for a cameo of elderly James T. Kirk at some point (Q taking Picard there or something…) and more importantly, it would allow for the Enterprise-D to return.

They have to connect emotionally to the true fans first and I think just bringing these things back tastefully and earnestly in a way that makes some narrative sense (Q magic?) would go a long, long way to setting all of this right. After that is done, no more time travel and all the fanservice and 'member ____ nostalgia whoring is kept to an absolute minimum because everybody realizes that Star Trek is worthy is respect and wants to protect it.

And then i realize that would require no effort from me aside from this post and thus I do not deserve such an outcome.

What is the point of a new Star Trek if the prime timeline isn't there? The canon from previous shows isn't even relevant if a new series is POST-Voyager.

His idea is almost completely different and mostly retarded. He essentially wants to cock tease our nostalgia by using a different Galaxy-class ship as an Enterprise-D stand-in along with selectively disregarding some post-TNG canon. My position is that if that's what we're doing, let's just be honest and disregard the films and use the actual Enterprise-D, which Q would explain had been lost and adrift for 20-years (pure pottery, actually). He also does some dumb shit like including Geordi with a family for try-hard 'muh show writing' reasons and obvious and futile "diversity" points. A more elegant solution would be to basically use a 25-years later future that already exists: the All Good Things… one as a basis, and do some tweeking with the characters as-needed to establish the new series.

You obviously prefer the cucklasa memes to actually watching and autistically-deconstructing his ideas. The former should always come after the latter, like i'm doing now.

>not all bad

It is if you are not interested in Picard anymore. There is nothing wrong with jumping ahead in time 80 years like TNG did. The old canon is still there and new stories can be written and the writers are not shackled too much by the old canon. It is the perfect solution.

Am I alone in wanted something new instead of a retread of TNG with old Patrick Stewart and LaVar Burton? I don't like nostalgia like Mike Cucklosa does.

It's not a hyper-autistic finance simulator, so it's not EVE online. The vast amount of single-player content does give it a kind of theme park feel, and you can go back to replay your favorite single-player storylines if you are so inclined. Endgame content isn't bad from what I remember but becomes a grind very quickly.

>time skip

Did somebody say time skip? It's a universally-accepted and understood bit of received wisdom on /strek/ that the TNG time skip was a bad idea. No anon who lurks for more than 1.5 years need to have it explained to them that 'the future of the future' is kind of pointless for a show like Star Trek, especially since it's not space opera. It's 'situational', episodic sci-fi that should rely on chronologically-tight (but deep) worldbuilding. The time skip was a cynical attempt at protecting TOS from TNG and it ended up hurting both. It was not a decision motivated by creative concerns. Literally no one here disagrees with this.

The thing is Section 31 already existed before Mirror Georgiou. Now the writers are planning to put her at the helm of Section 31. It doesn't make any sense to give that power to someone who is "literally evil" and from a parallel universe.

Let's talk, /strek/


>i liked the main STD universe

As a coping strategy, many of us were holding out hope early during Season 1 that it was going to be revealed that the "main STD universe" was in fact the mirror universe. How naive and foolish were those hopes.


>STD is all about money

it literally isn't. somewhere between 2008-2012 the reality of Too Big To Fail set-in amongst globalist corporations coupled with Obama-era cronyism and anti-competative strategies of the likes of Amazon and before it, Microsoft, have given rise to this notion that these fucks literally do not (and should not) have to turn a profit. An extension of that is that they are beholden to no one (not their customers, not their shareholders) except the relationship they have with government/politicians… and this is happening as the wealthy/globalists are increasingly backing the Democrats in American politics. Think of that next time an NPC inflicts you with rhetoric about "right wingers" and their "fascism". It is not about money. It's about being useful to those seeking/wielding power and control.

The problem with STD was not that they made a product that nobody wanted (a show that nobody watched) or that their shitty streaming service was a shitty ghost town. The problem was that these realities became the perception. They had no problem with ruining the legacy of Star Trek with this garbage. They were always going to use it as a glossy face in what was essentially an elaborate promo campaign. "Mike Burnham" was basically another Dos Equis "Most Interesting Man" or Progressive Insurance "Flo". This is why i always suspected we'ld get 3 seasons out of STD and only that. That corresponds to generally how long these ad campaigns last: 3 years.

The point is, it's more helpful to think of TV like this not as an actual fictional IP that is a narrative storyworld with expectations of continuity and internal coherence. It is merely a self-referential memeplex such that Kirk, tribbles, and phasers are like mom & apple pie. Contrary to what many anons think (and with great antagonism towards their concept of justice) I think CBS would have gotten away with it if not for a series of stupid mistakes, such as the temptation to try to jump on the GoT bandwagon and make it serialized. Making it episodic would have given them much more flexibility to course-correct. That shit will have doomed them in the end, and not necessarily the canon-raping or the fan-insulting. It's the unforced errors in structure and production that has the execs reeeing, no doubt, and not the fan reaction. They - like most modern globalist business types - believe they literally have a responsibility to disregard what you think or want.


>STD season 2 "Klingon" redesign

this is actually a huge backtrack on their part. You can tell they walked the entire character design back the minimum of what they would have to change from TMP era klinks. Rumor is shit has to be a certain percentage different visually for nuTrek projects. Looks like they achieve that facially with the extra nosrils, exagerated brow ridge, huge contacts, and chin stripe. Much of the latex is gone, though. Keep in mind that the actress herself is quite ugly so it's hard to judge just how much they've retreated from the original STD design.



total guess but since we didnt' see much in the way of nude Klingons in the 80's and 90's, it's possible that the weird details of the bodies were retained for Season 2 because this could be deemed as uncharted territory, so no need to correct it.


>i want nuTrek to respect/explain real Star Trek



>I hope Spock has at least 20 more siblings of every possible race, gender, and sexual orientation, Spock himself being the dumbest and least-accomplished among them



>stranger things off-top discussion

Music is the only thing that is ever good with pop-culture nostalgia settings. The only one i've seen lately that i actually liked was - surprisingly enough - the San Junipero episode of Black Mirror because, spoiler alert it's not really the 80's.. it's a simulation and all the people are modern people pretending to be into the 80's… which totally fits. If they hadn't have fucked-up by putting in some bonkers lurid interracial lesbian love affair, it would have been a great episode

>CBS has ordered an additional episode for the second season.

It's a serialized show, so the major plot elements and points were all set during pre-production. We can believe reshoots happen to make limited changes, but an entirely new episode this late is highly unlikely and can really only mean one thing: in this midst of all this leadership drama at CBS, a decision to cancel STD has been made and what they've ordered is actually a finale/epilogue. There is no other reason for an entirely separate additional episode to be tacked-on to a serialized show, especially one as expensive yet unpopular as STD.

Also, it's "awards season" and they just mailed-out screeners so it's possible they want to wait until after to announce the cancellation, if it's in fact happening, so as not to negatively influence the hype.

New trailer.

e449a3  No.28048


Do you remember when Star Trek had stories that explored different aspects of life through the guise of science fiction? Where one episode you could have a story about two aliens battling for dominance despite their similarities and how the crew, headed by the educated and wordly Captain, would help the two sides come to peace (or at least plant the seed of it even if the conflict wasn't solved just then. And then you could have a fun story about the crew playing a game of baseball that still showed the importance of teamwork and knowing how to lose (and win) gracefully. Followed by an episode where someone's mistake brings along catastrophe, but the intelligence of the crew helps solve it, thus showing us how there isn't nothing you can't solve without a level head and the will to do so. You know, stories that help you get to learn the characters and the world they live in, the cultures and customs, while giving you that sweet taste of interesting sci-fi inventions and innovations in technology. Where you can tackle any social subject available - corruption in politics and the justice system, revolutions under a dictatorship, corporate meddling, censorship - and try to give all sides a platform to try to justify themselves, letting the people come to their own conclusions.

Why does STD want to be DS9: But Only the Scenes Where the Federation and Its Allies Were Fighting the Dominion and Cardassia (aka WTF is Character Development and Looking at Humanities Problems Through Aliens)? I don't give a shit about this unlikeable crew of literal whos and Michael Sue (feat. SPOOOOOOCK) having to save the Galaxy from an Event Horizon wannabe. My only hope is that they're trying to throw a curveball - all of this shit will be resolved in like 3 episodes and then they have actual episodic stuff (not an ideal way of doing things, but whatever). But I know it won't be like this.

What you are talking about is that questions about philosophy and ethics taking the back seat in favour of "personal drama", it's extremly narcisstic post-modern indivualism fueled by social media. In classic Trek the characters served the story, in STD the story serves the characters so they can get over their anxiety or autism. All modern TV shows are like this, even Game of Thornes. My hypothesis is that they couldn't play off the collectivism of the Cold War anymore (the USSR serving as both the enemy [the Borg] as well as some potential alternative [the Feds]), after Fukuyama declared the end of history, what point was there to play ideologies off with one another? What point was there to raise ethical questions about the future? What is left is the individual whims of SJWish characters. Remember the implications of capitalism vs socialism in DS9 in the form of Quark interacting with other species? Unthinkable for the STD idiots, these guys probably don't even know what any of these terms mean. I mean, fucking hell, they shoehorned ELON MUSK in as a great thinker.

In regards to the trailer, you can see there is a lot of money spent on it. It looks polished. Music, action, better clothes, etc. better in comparison top classic Trek, but it is badly executed. I mean, I am not talking about hipster Spock who is just in there as a gimmick for boomers who saw TOS and zoomers who know him from 9gag. I recommend everyone this video:


While the guy isn't too harsh on STD, he breaks down how camera work, lighting and dialog deviates from standard and has more to do with a run-of-the-mill superhero movie than with Star Trek.

Also, they absolutely rushed season one. Klingon war, spore drive, mirror universe, etc. all done in fast-forward. You never feel like anything connects with one another. It's a mix of all kinds of tropes. That's bad storytelling.

My only hope is that for god's sake stick to one issue (these "century ship" villians) and develop it carefully and don't mix in 3-4 other references and clashes because they want to overload it because they want more viewers so badly.

If you look at Trekmovie (I used to like that place) it's impossible to leave a negative opinion on STD without getting submerged by insults (sexist, mysoginist, racist, Alt-right) or "go watch the Orville and stop bothering us".

>starships bridges have windows instead of viewscreens

It's the only design retcon / innovation that I actually liked and approved-of with nuTrek. Without the window, there is no reason to have your command and control center be this tiny exposed bubble at the top of the ship. It would otherwise be buried in the hull like a submarine or BSG. With the window, the bridge might have some conceivable purpose for being where it is - perhaps related to orienting the saucer during re-entry with massive system failure or perhaps certain first-contact scenarios and as a symbolic gesture of Starfleet's not-explicitly-military purpose. And if not, it's still a fine visual conceit. The franchise opened with a zoom shot through the skylight so…

Why the fuck did those snub ships need such a over complicated anime style launch tube shit instead of just having them lift off from the shuttle bay like a normal craft? I mean it's one thing to say "oh the discovery just happen to be carrying three drop pods for this exact situation", you can kind believe a fed ship would hold all sorts of small utility shuttles for various environments, but why the fuck would they have their own built in special launch bay and tubes that seemingly ran through the entire length of the ship that were never used or mentioned before?!

Also, how could they be so fucking genre deaf that even though you have legions of angry fans bitching about how the show isn't star trek enough, that you send literally the first actual god damn red shirt on a star trek tv series in decades on an away mission and not kill her? Then instead you have a white dude be murdered by the great will of the universe for daring to mansplain to the most holy perfect Saint Mikey-spock about how to do something that she's already of course a master at.

Having Spock be younger than Michael when she was adopted seemed off, like how old is Spock suppose to be there? The timeline for this seems really off if they're going to say Spock was still only in his early 40's during TOS.

I did like Pike though, even I know he totally not doing Pike correctly. And Spunky McGingertits' giant ass was likable as always. The interior design of Discovery has grown on me, though I wish they'd fucking turn the lights up now that Lorca's gone.

With this season premiere you can really feel the Bad Robot hand over the franchise via the way Kurtzman has changed the show. More over-designed tech, more unfunny scenes that makes the show sound more like "Family Guy in space" than The Orville. Also the score has changed too, it's closer to Giacchino's work on the JJ-Trek movies.

They don't get why people like The Orville. It's not the humor, it's the optimism and the science fiction.

There's another Mary Sue now, with the dyke engineer from the crashed ship.

I really don't like the character assassination of Spock.


Also that looooooong unfunny scene with Tilly and Pike on the bridge.

To be fair it was always kind of assumed the turbo lift system must be some crazy ass shit in order to move all over a ship and do that as quickly as shown in the various shows, which is why most trek wisely chosed to not even try to explain how they work or ever show more than a small section of shaft.

Yeah, the STD people tend to overthink the tech that was established in other shows, stuff that most trekkies would say "it just works" because it was never important in the first place.

He's like an incel. When they first meet as kids, he started drawing a hologram monster then he shuts the door in front of Burnham. In the trailer for the rest of the season there was a scene where Burnham and Spock were kissing, so I think they're going to shove some weird incest thing.

>Funny how so many things about TNG got much better when Roddenberry stopped being involved

Because Roddenberry envisioned a future where humanity had become so advanced and perfect that they effectively stopped being human, which is boring and cringy as fuck.

The best example of why Roddenberry having too much say over star trek is the story about how he was extremely unhappy about the episode "Family" (the episode where Picard heads to back to earth while recovering from being de-borg-ified). His reason? He hated the interaction between Picard and his brother. In his ideal vision of the future, the federation's advanced social engineering had eliminated such basic human feelings as sibling rivalry and animosity. And when you actually stop and think about that, how much of the human condition that would have to be stamped out of existence to do such a thing, it's just scary as fuck as a concept. It paints the Federation as being Orwell's Ingsoc except they ended scarcity by inventing replicators, created world peace by conquering Eastasia and Eurasia, and so thoroughly crushed the human spirit and restrained free thought that the Ministry of Love and tight control over civil liberties is no longer necessary, and the end result is a dystopian earth that technically looks like a wonderous utopia at a casual glance.

Yup. >>28778 has no blessed clue what he's talking about. Roddenberry came up with the Q as a way to shoehorn "humans are sooooo special compared to icky aliens that even gods are fascinated by humans" idiocy into scripts.

Roddenberry's true skill was in being a fantastic executive producer. He had a singular ability to gather talented writers, directors, producers, and other creative people to work on his show.

Witness TOS episodes he wrote like The Omega Glory, or the way he lorded over the early-TNG writing room via his lawyer Leonard Maizlish.

Jokes aside, I also found that sequence disturbing, once again the show pretends to be a drama/character driven but the writers ignore the basic human emotions and interactions.

Well they did have her say. that she can stay awake during 10g's like 900 times longer than any human on earth has ever managed so apparently she's just that inhumanly strong.

Honestly, at this point the only way you could maybe redeem this character is to pull a Bashir and reveal Sarek had Mikey augmented as a child in order to help her keep up with the Vulcan kids and just plain not fucking die from spending too much time out in the vulcan sun. giving the character a in-universe reason why she's not only seemingly superhuman at everything but also an arrogant autistic cunt.

The latest episode setup is actually fairly common Trek fare: a distress signal leads the crew to a previously unknown colony of pre-warp humans who arrived on their imperiled planet via mysterious circumstances. Except in this case, it's STD, so everything is fucked six ways from Sunday. The colony was apparently uprooted whole cloth by the "red angel" during WW3 who then, presumably, sent the Discovery to the colony 200 years later in order to save it from a radioactive disaster?

The colony has its own religion that worships the angel for saving their ancestors from the horrors of war, but it's a bastardized amalgam of all major Earth religions because that's obviously how it would work out. And the colonists all seems seem kind of blase about the fact that jamming all the major religions together to worship a cosmic entity is dumb, but they do it anyway? The show is fucking stupid. Here's some highlights:

-Michael Burnham is an expert on all major Earth religions because of course she is. Also Shakespeare.

-Later in the episode Burnham casually dismisses the colonist's religion as false, which it is, but someone as woke as Michael Fucking Burnham should know that people can believe whatever they want and she needs to check her goddamn privilege.

-The spore drive is back and still as stupid as fucking ever.

-One of the nameless bridge drones gets to go on the away mission because she was raised by Luddites and is therefore more knowledgeable about the pre-warp civilization the planet. This manifests by her ability to open a barrel bolt latch. Also, Luddites make great starship officers, apparently.

-Ginger Tits extracts some dark matter from her pet asteroid and gets blasted into a fucking wall by an energy discharge. That was great.

-She also now has a guardian ghost angel thing in the form of an equally autistic and insufferable bitch named May who calls her "Stilly."

-The ship does a donut maneuver in space and FUCK the rest of this.

I didn't expect them to re-use the mushroom drive, especially with the lawsuit happening behind the scenes and that mention last episode about the crew starting to disassemble every piece of that technology from the ship.

I don't know where they're going with that Red Angel plot but I don't think it will end well. The first season showed that they couldn't write a war story or proper character interactions so a supernatural being? Really? The whole concept stinks Mystery Box.


>The latest episode setup is actually fairly common Trek fare

It felt like a rehash of "Terra Nova" from ENT but with less science or "what if?" and more nonsense.

>Michael Burnham is an expert on all major Earth religions because of course she is. Also Shakespeare

I hate those scenes, I think the actress is getting worse and worse. There's also that weird editing where they shove a close shot of her face reacting to something in every situation. One example is when Saru jokes about how the FTL jump always feel weird the first time, they cut to her and she tilts her head like a robot.

>Ginger Tits extracts some dark matter from her pet asteroid and gets blasted into a fucking wall by an energy discharge. That was great.

I wish she died but apparently one autistic blob wasn't enough so now they've added a pajeet who is as ugly and mentally challenged as Tilly.

There's another case of Saru flip-flopping because of the "muh girls in STEM" gimmick in the production. He reprimands Tilly for putting the lives of the crew and hers at risk with the experiment then he apologizes because he also made the "mistake" of learning too many languages when he wanted to join Starfleet. Why was his story considered as a bad thing? Tilly did an enormous stupid thing, she started to work on something alone ffs.


> "My people were still living in fucking mudhuts" Saru

Speaking about his people, it's a funny story because the writers haven't noticed that by taking the only big brain nibba out of the tribe, Starfleet have condemned them to remain as cattle forever.

Was that Amanda in the preview for the next episode? The show really loves dragging up both her and Sarek for no reason at all. Also

>Jim, did I ever tell you about that time I was in a psychiatric ward?

I really don't want the show to make Spock such a special snowflake, which I'm sort of fearing will happen ever since they talked about how he's had visions of the red peakons long before Starfleet became aware of them.

I fucking hate Tilly so much. She is so fucking insufferable and I don't understand why Kurtzman thought the show needed such an obnoxious comic relief character. There's also no way in hell I believe her to ever make a good captain. I'd be embarrassed to serve on the same ship as her. And that pajeet ghost gave Michael's actress a run for her money as the worst actor on the show.

There's was that scene at the end there, with Pike talking to the black scientist guy that was alright actually. It probably helped that Michael wasn't there to ruin the scene. I do wonder how he's going to explain to the people there how he suddenly managed to get the electricity working without the religious lady thinking it was the work of their Red Angels, but whatever.

Also, is it just me or could Pike have just thrown away the phaser instead of jumping on it? The plast wasn't going to be that big considering it didn't just blow a hole right through him. Seemed kinda stupid to do so.

Random other stuff

>the editing was really weird at parts, especially in that scene where the religious lady was explaining their origins

>the text Pike read in the church seemed to imply the religion was more extreme and opressive, but they never really showed that in action. Black scientist man was grumpy, sure, but nothing that implied they were going to burn him at the stake for not wanting to let go of their past

I'm kind of fascinated by Lorca because of what his character tells you about the writers. We're supposed to view him as this great villain, and yet he never really comes across as that bad of a guy. His only real crimes were concealing his identity, and taking the war effort seriously. He was simply a man from a warrior culture, who behaved as such. If they'd kept him around the show might actually have an interesting layer, but we can't have that. Something something Donald Trump. Throw him into a sun. Yay, love trumps hate.

With more talented writers, the relationship between an idealistic youngster, and a no nonsense military man could actually form a solid premise for a Star Trek show. Actually seeing these two characters grow and change over several seasons could have been something. But, well, here we are.

I agree. After the Groundhog Day episode it became quite clear that the writers and the showrunners weren't fans of the character

I think the writers saw him as a "piece of shit who deserves to die in a brutal manner" more than a great villain like Dukat or Sheev for example.

I'd like to know what they had in mind originally (before Fuller got fired) because if I remember correctly there was no Mirror Universe story planned.

5fd4b7  No.28907


This is why the sudden transformation of him into a villain was so utterly unbelievable. He literally didn't violate a single moral or ethical code as a captain, he didn't show any unnecessary cruelty or bloodlust - and the "lesser evil person", the one who is supposed to win and come back later, empress Georgiou, was shown to be literally worse than Hitler (exterminating a planet) and eating another sentiment species. Why in hell's name are we supposed to assume that Lorca was somehow worse?

As for the last episode, it wasn't one of its worst. But the story was already a dead horse, with TNG, VOY and ENT already having episodes like that, and as expected, it was somehow worse. I didn't find it interesting, there was no real conflict or big ethical dilemma played out. A Picard would have had a great monolog in response to some antagonist on the planet when they end up in some sort of witch trial, but there is no time for that for STD, everything needs to rushed, muh grimdark setting muh shaky cam. Tiresome and not fitting for Star Trek. I expected better from Frakes who should know how to direct a Trek episode.

However, the trailer for the next episode doesn't actually look that bad. But I know I'm just gonna be disappointed again. Does anybody else think that mysterious alien lady could be a Cardassian? The way they redesigned the Klangs this could be what they do the Cardies .

Mirror universe story ruined it for me completely. They should have learned from the lesson of DS9: Mirror universe is so comically hyperbolic, it works as a gimmick episode like in TOS and ENT but don't try to have a sincere story revolve around it. It was completely unnecessary as well. I wouldn't have mind a creepy parallel universe, especially after the gloomy visions Stammets had which left the viewer with the feeling that at some point the jump is gonna go wrong, but to copy paste the TOS mirror universe 1:1 was just lame.

That's the thing, these people aren't creative. They have no culture other than "pop culture". Like a lot of people have said, they could've set the show in a post-VOY era but no, they had to make it a prequel set 10 years before TOS so they could play with the nostalgia (member the Enteprise? member Sarek? member Spock? etc.) and deconstruct/destroy everything Trek stands for from the root.

Probably. Gotta give Stamets something to do and remind people that hey, we had a gay couple on the show, remember that? They should just completely drop this part of the story. Them casually jumping to the Beta Quadrant was so lame and it kinda makes all the accomplishments of previous Trek look weak as shit.

>oh there was this ship that actually could travel to anywhere in the universe :) we didn't really use it to explore new regions of space and gather info about the new races there, that's not exciting

Ideally, the best way to handle 'Lorca as a villian' would have been to take him more and more into a Colonel Kurtz direction where he actually starts trying to prolong the war because he realizes his current value to star fleet is entirely based on being a good fighter and without that he loses all his power and goes back to being an embarrassment in danger of losing his command. This would explain him wanting Mikey on board, because he assumes she's also into killing klingons and disobeying starfleet. With Mikey's arc eventually ending with her having to stage another mutiny only this time to stop the war by preventing Lorca from doing a "undiscovered country" to sabotage a peace talk.

I don't know how they've manage to make the Klingon thot even uglier.

Also why couldn't they have just recorded the the Klingon dude threatening to kill the baby? I mean, that sort of tactic has got to get you put on some sort of empire wide "Kill this Honorless Pig Dog on Sight" list.

I mean granted that would have been a far more interesting resolution, he walks into the chamber boasting about how he's running this place now and every other Klingon there casually takes out a disruptor and shoots him because they just saw what he did.

Can we have a new thread for the second season?

STD, please. I get that some people would know about them, but why Ash of all people?

>pajeet was a spore parasite

ok, whatever, but that scene where Stamets extracted her from Tilly looked like a bad parody of Ghostbusters. I think I laughed at that. Also, let's hope this is the last time we see her "actress".

Very little Pike this time around. He doesn't make the show better, mind you, but he's the most tolerable part of the show.

The Klingon storyline was alright I guess, though the fight scene looked so silly and I still don't get why L'Rell couldn't just ask Ash to prove himself to the Klangons. They always boast about having honour and shit, and TOS and beyond have shown that they're willing to accept non-Klingons if they can prove themselves worthy in their eyes. It seemed like such a non-problem that only exists because STD made the Klingons too fucking edgy.

As >>28984 said, Spock and Amanda's characters are being raped to here and beyond. I can't even imagine how bad it'll be when Spock finally shows up. And the sad thing is, I think the actress playing Amanda is pretty cute (unironically the most attractive woman on the show, which is so sad), but Michael just has a talent of sucking the scene dry of any resemblance of personality or logic.

I see nuNumber One will be showing up next week. Curious to see how she'll be presented.

I genuinely expected the curry-parasite to suddenly say that Mikey was supposed to be the captain there.

Yeah me too, especially since Burnham was the one who was writing the log for some reason and screwed up the stardate.

Why did the episode start with Fatty stopping during a half-marathon and then sprinting past people who look much fitter than her? All because of Burnham's training?

8c08b0  No.29016


The show is contractually obligated to have at least two scenes of self-congratulatory stronk womynism per episode, regardless of physical or mental plausibility.

The better question is why when Tilly, a commissioned officer in the command training program, starts having an obvious dissociative metal episode on the bridge in the middle of an exercise, everyone including Pike just stands around gawking instead of calling for a goddamn medic?

Because it's Tilly. And they probably already took bets over what kind of autistic sperg out she would have during her first mock command test.

If they wanted to add some real comedy, then right after she leaves they could of had Cyber Bitch Face or The Other Black Click suddenly say, "Okay, who had 'scream at the captain to shut up' in the betting pool?"

Considering all the awkward poorly thought out ways the writing is responding to criticism people had over the 1st season, does it feel like they're shitting on Saru and Tilly's characters this season just because the writers know they were the only two characters people marginally liked last year? I don't know if it's intentional, out of spite because people liked a couple of c grade side characters more than the glorious master-crafted wonder of Michael Burnswhenipee, or Cannibal Granny Space Hitler. Or if just the writers are just that shit, and this is what happens when they try to give any character a larger role.

8c08b0  No.29021


The writers are just that shit. There have been a few attempts this season to course correct and address fan complaints, but every single one of them has come off feeling cack-handed at best, and at worst almost insulting to the fans. In the first episode alone they had Burnham, Stamets, and at least one of the bridge nobodies all swooning about how beautiful and advanced and badass the Enterprise was. Like the fucking show is apologizing for its own existence.

>People don't like how the nuKlingons look or talk

Hey, look at that! All of a sudden they have costume wigs stapled to their shitty prosthetics and they start speaking English for no good reason. Still can't enunciate for shit through all that silicone, though.

>People complained that the bridge crew has no personality or names, even

STD has an actual goddamned roll call to identify all the nameless drones, who go right on being completely inconsequential.

>People complained that the tech level is too advanced for a TOS prequel

Suddenly we're finding ways to back-handedly retcon all the stupid shit, like taking the spore drive offline (which lasts for one whole episode), and having Pike be "old school" and communicating via screens rather than holograms.

>People don't like how dark and serious the show is

They blatantly rip off the Orville with cringeworthy "humor" like the turbolift scene, Tilly going totally over the top with her sperginess, and Pike's atta-boy "Let's have some fun" attitude.

The sad part is I'd be on board for a Pike series with that sort of attitude. Kirk had a certain confident swagger with the way he approached exploration and discovery. If they wanted to build a series around a captain like Pike who is more of a goofy nerd about it, I could totally get behind that. Unfortunately these people fucking suck and would rather shit on the canon to justify their own existence rather than make something new.

And as for Georgiou, you can find better acting on Pornhub. Michelle Yeoh is a perfectly serviceable actor, but she can't play a ruthless, psychotic, cannibalistic killer for shit.

Enterprise at least knew if you're going to do a Mirror Universe arc that EVERYONE has to play over the top for it to work and they knew to keep it separate from the main continuity.

On STD now we've got a singular cartoon villain strutting around like Cruella deVille amidst a group of mop-headed autists all standing around being sad about having the best job in the galaxy.

People complain about Georgiou, Michael, the klingorcs, or the fidget spinner shroom ship bullshit when they talk about why STD is such a failure. But to me, it's this fucking character that is the most glaring thing that sums up why the show is a supreme garbage fire.

I mean look at her. They gave her just enough of a unique design that she immediately catches the viewer's eyes in group scenes. Someone has to spend time money and effort into that make-up work every day during filming. The character has been around since the very first episode, she was part of the Sinzo bridge crew when shit hit the fan and saw everything that happen. She was obviously injured and permanently disfigured as a result of that battle. And the directors even went to the trouble of clearly showing her giving Michael the stink eye in a number of early episodes after michael comes on board the discovery. Every single element of this character leads you to assume she'll be at least marginally important at some point in the series… but she's not. She's not even used as some cliche bitchy white girl foil to Michael that eventually gets her rightful comeuppance for ever doubting or being mean to the perfect flawless black saint of the Alpha quadrant, or as a lazy crutch so the writers can still have someone hate on Michael for her past screw ups after they had Saru soften on her.

And the fact she's really is just a completely unimportant background character despite all this makes the whole experience of watching the show jarring, it takes you out of the immersion even more than many of the other terrible elements do. She's a Chekhov's gun that keeps being shown off but then never gets used, and your brain just screams at you for it. Because you've been trained to have certain literary expectations for stories and plot developments but STD's writers are so shit that they go off and leave you blue balled waiting for confrontations and interpersonal conflicts that never actually happen.

And even after Season two starts making token efforts to give the bridge crew more time and focus, she's just written as "blandly quirky pilot girl" instead of giving the character any specific traits that actually uses the background or viewer expectations they already set up.

I might have to rewatch the episode but didn't they retcon Burnham's origin story? I thought her parents got killed by the klingorcs when they raided their colony but now it's the Logic extremists™ who did it?


I agree. Star Trek was always about the people. On STD they claimed that they wanted to make a character drama set during the war but they did nothing of it. She should've said or done something the second she saw her enter the mess on the Discovery. She should've punched her in the face TBH.

I feel bad for these people, they get their name in the credits but on screen they're like random extras. Working on a show that has the name "Star Trek" is like a big point in your career, you're part of a big family. Like the robot girl, it must be sad to have to wear all those prosthetics only to tilt your head as a sign of agreement with Burnham in a 2 second shot.


>Why did the episode start with Fatty stopping during a half-marathon and then sprinting past people who look much fitter than her?

Apparently that got the official subreddit triggered to the point that they're now deleting every comments that raise this issue. There are also retards who are defending this script, saying that fat people can run faster than a healthy individual.

I forgot about that part, but Memory Alpha says the nuKlingons were the ones to kill her parents, while after arriving on Vulcan, the Lawgic extremists were the ones to go full autism over her.

>Shortly after she arrived on Vulcan, Burnham was targeted by Vulcan logic extremists who believed that Humans were a threat to their logical civilization and who launched an attack on the Learning Center. The bombing left Burnham physically dead for three minutes, forcing Sarek to initiate a mind meld with Burnham in order to revive her. As a result of this, a portion of Sarek's katra remained inside her mind, which later allowed him to communicate with her across interstellar distances and the two to share physical sensations such as pain.

You'd think Archer carrying Surak's katra and whatnot would make the extremist parts of Vulcan non-existant, but whatever.

>You'd think Archer carrying Surak's katra and whatnot would make the extremist parts of Vulcan non-existant, but whatever.

I think the STD writers completely misinterpreted the Syrrannite story arc. They weren't extremists, they were the scapegoats for the current Vulcans in power who were working with the Romulans.

I bet they didn't watch the episodes and only read the synopsis on Wikipedia and called it "research".

Honestly I just assumed the parasite was giving her magic mushroom super powers or some shit since it claimed it was helping her and that's how she was able to win the race.
