I don't think it's any more or less silly. It's just different.
Nah. It's definitely sillier. :wink:

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

As opposed to a super special crystal that doesn't obey the laws of known physics allowing it to regulate matter/antimatter reactions? I gotta tell ya: Super special crystal to regulate a reaction is at least analogous to a lens of some sort. Fungus, on the other hand, tends to represent a very dif...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

She's bonded with Sarek through mind melds, which, by the way, is why Picard and Archer can do it. Plus she was trained on Vulcan. If she COULDN'T do it, I'd actually be more surprised. This is one of the reasons it always annoyed me that Data could do it. It implies either that there's no psychic ...

Re: The Orville

Well, as Terence wrote, 2,000-odd years ago, "Nothing has been said that has not been said before."

It's not entirely factual ... but it has an air of truth to it.

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

What does the Nerve Pinch have to do with being a Mary Sue? We've seen Picard give one. Seven. Odo. Data. Archer. Picard's seemed to be some sort of variant, without the instantaneous effect a Vulcan neck pinch has. Seven possesses the enhanced strength I believe is necessary to deliver it. Odo wou...

Re: The Orville

Us "damn millenials" really aren't the enemy, you know, old man. Showing progress in storytelling is not a bad thing. The first season of DISCO had some excellent story beats and I genuinely don't understand the problem most people have. I didn't like the Klingon "redesign" either... until it was m...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

I don't find Burnham to be a Mary Sue. Is she immensely intelligent and talented? Yes. She has every reason to be. She was raised on Vulcan and expected to perform at near-Vulcan like levels. But from the outset of the show, she was shown to be capable of mistakes and flawed judgement. She's the op...

Re: The Orville

I do not understand anyone who claims it's "MORE" Star Trek than Discovery is. People make that claim because it's a perspective that's wholly justifiable logically, though not provable. Discovery , despite the fact that it does seem to be gradually finding its footing, in particular this season, s...

Re: Is anyone feeling ...

There's no accounting for taste, in that I'd rather a series faithful to the spirit of Star Trek , no matter its identity crisis, than one trumpeting its canonicity while regularly flouting what has gone before it. The Orville does seem a throwback, though. As I've said before, it's Star Trek: The N...
