I’m excited to watch the season premiere of Star Trek Discovery tonight. Why? Because the alternative is a town hall with either Biden or Trump (written on 10/15/2020). Plus, I love Star Trek. This is, after all, why I bought a subscription to CBS All Access. I don’t plan on doing viewing notes for every episode; just this one.
Burnham arrives in the future. This is something every space show gets wrong. If you choose a random point in the universe, the overwhelming odds are that it’ll be empty. Yet here she is, showing up in a mess of junk and running directly into a ship.
Gee. It’s a good thing Burnham landed on a class M planet. What are the odds? See above.
Book really can’t fight. Give me the first punch, and you’re going to sleep. Plus, phasers have greater range than knives. It’s not an even trade to separate. She’s still a threat, and you’re no longer one. Dipshit.
A dilithium recrystallizer?
Oh, wait. Nevermind.
In other news, my spell check doesn’t recognize “dilithium” or “recrystallizer.”
I just saw Morn!
Yep. That’s Morn (you know what I mean).
Amazing that the animal’s goo is everywhere but on Michael’s face.
The red-leaved trees are an obvious homage to the opening scene of Star Trek Into Darkness. That movie deserves no references.
Why is everyone whispering? Speak up. I can’t make out what you’re saying.
Overall, this is a very interesting take on the Star Trek universe. I’m eager to see where this season goes.
