Anyone else been watching the new Short Treks?

They seem to have annoyed all the hardcore Trekkies (not difficult) but I've enjoyed them.

Assume the last one will tie into Picard somehow?

groovypanda, Monday, 20 January 2020 10:26 (six months ago) link

The last one is indeed a Picard teaser.

I only watched the cartoon one and really liked it, it was equal parts Looney Tunes and Disney.

Oh and I watched the Picard one as well, it was ok.

Siouxie Sioux and the Vanjies (Leee), Monday, 20 January 2020 18:25 (six months ago) link

The Trouble with Edward one is a blast although apparently Star Trek isn't allowed to be funny.

groovypanda, Monday, 20 January 2020 18:49 (six months ago) link

Just watched it and yes, it's funny as hell.

two years later and series 1 has made it to terrestrial tv in the uk. am about 8 episodes in, but i've nothing really to say other than i'm disappointed that the DISCO shirts don't say VERY on the back.

koogs, Monday, 10 February 2020 19:09 (five months ago) link

I love the DISCO shirts.

trishyb, Monday, 10 February 2020 19:34 (five months ago) link

it's currently only on E4 and has already been moved from 21:00 to 23:40 on sundays after 8 episodes.

koogs, Monday, 10 February 2020 19:45 (five months ago) link

this changed a lot around episode 9.

lol at episode 8 though. "Just one more jump before i retire..."

is s3 even happening or what

mookieproof, Saturday, 25 April 2020 05:32 (three months ago) link

after the disaster of s2 they should take their time, correct their errors, fire 100 more producers

wasdnous (abanana), Saturday, 25 April 2020 05:42 (three months ago) link

oh no have i made a terrible mistake

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 25 April 2020 05:49 (three months ago) link

It is remarkable how many series Fuller has started on then promptly bounced from, but since everything he kept working on is great and everything he abandoned (or was forced out of) turned out to be a mess I'm choosing to see this as a condemnation of the medium

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Saturday, 25 April 2020 05:50 (three months ago) link

I enjoyed the hell out of S2 but between this and Picard I think the notion that someone can make a contemporary Trek series is kind of a false premise. The days of running 7 seasons of 25 eps per year is long over, and all these shows are so plot heavy that you can't afford to have duff character eps in a 10 episode season that is all in service of the narrative arc.

That said, Pike was a legitimate great addition to ST lore and the actor played him well. I'd happily see a Pike-led TOS style show.

justice 4 CCR (Sparkle Motion), Saturday, 25 April 2020 06:09 (three months ago) link

I don't get the love for Disco Pike! Shakey bafflingly called Picard a nullity but I think that title is more applicable to Pike.

Judd Apatowsaurus (Leee), Saturday, 25 April 2020 06:15 (three months ago) link

Totally agree that Pike brought some clear TOS energy (not to mention some proper mature hotness, instead of being another of these callow bearded younglings that the Trek casting teams seem so in love with these days). But season two of Discovery is a boring mess.

trishyb, Saturday, 25 April 2020 10:25 (three months ago) link

Thought the second season was miles better and more fun, even if it missed Jason Isaacs’s weird whatever-it-was. The last ep was stupid, though.

Chuck_Tatum, Saturday, 25 April 2020 15:54 (three months ago) link

Michael is the nullify for me, in the sense that Sonequa M-G always seems weirdly uncommitted - although she had a good chemistry w/Spock iirc. Also! Discovery Spock >>> Zachary Quinto

Chuck_Tatum, Saturday, 25 April 2020 15:57 (three months ago) link

the uncommitted thing seems like a misfire on the attempt to seem culturally Vulcan

CBS All Access has given a series order to STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS, starring Anson Mount as Captain Pike and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock.

Just for me, obviously.

trishyb, Friday, 15 May 2020 16:24 (two months ago) link

can't be as bad as Enterprise was, at least?

mh, Friday, 15 May 2020 16:39 (two months ago) link

me 10 years ago: with theyd make more star trek tv :(
me 10 seconds ago: woha guys calm down i havent even finished picard yet

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Friday, 15 May 2020 18:35 (two months ago) link

some fans just can't be pleased i guess

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Friday, 15 May 2020 18:35 (two months ago) link

i watched the first few Enterprise episodes recently. seems to be entirely

1. vulcan lady is right about everything > captain whines, insists on doing something stupid, manages to half-assedly at least survive > vulcan lady begrudgingly starts to appreciate human stupidity

2. engineer has a bad accent, and not even amusingly like scotty

3. will the vulcan lady get her kit off in this ep

also, would you take a beagle on a submarine? then why are you taking one into space?

mookieproof, Friday, 15 May 2020 19:17 (two months ago) link

lol I read this 3 times thinking you were talking about Discovery and wondering what on earth you were on about.

Happy to hear that Pike's getting his own show. I know nothing about Anson Mount but he made a meal out of what could have been a nothing part, so if they write some proper Trek stories it could be good.

justice 4 CCR (Sparkle Motion), Friday, 15 May 2020 19:39 (two months ago) link

3. will the vulcan lady get her kit off in this ep

wait until u get 2 the therapeutic massage episodes

j., Friday, 15 May 2020 19:50 (two months ago) link

a whole therapeutic massage STORY ARC

j., Friday, 15 May 2020 19:50 (two months ago) link

so if they write some proper Trek stories it could be good

Big if imo.

So buttons. (Leee), Friday, 15 May 2020 20:22 (two months ago) link

lol i don't think i'm gonna continue. i kinda like the doctor, though -- he's chipper but not in a way that invites murder (unlike neelix)

i'm told the vulcan lady gets the pon farr, despite it being non-canon for females

just some extremely horny showrunning

mookieproof, Friday, 15 May 2020 20:27 (two months ago) link

aw i liked it!!!

j., Friday, 15 May 2020 20:56 (two months ago) link

whole lot of standing around in decontamination showers in underwear iirc

mh, Friday, 15 May 2020 21:05 (two months ago) link

Pretty excited about Pike Trek. Hope it's more optimistic and episodic, but not holding my breath.

Spencer Chow, Saturday, 16 May 2020 02:46 (two months ago) link

hope there are lots of worlds

j., Saturday, 16 May 2020 04:41 (two months ago) link

They won't be able to resist making half of them other Earths

justice 4 CCR (Sparkle Motion), Saturday, 16 May 2020 04:48 (two months ago) link

My household is excited for more Rebecca Romijn as Number One

silby, Saturday, 16 May 2020 05:21 (two months ago) link

Pretty sure that's her name, i.e. Lt. Commander Number One.

So buttons. (Leee), Saturday, 16 May 2020 06:20 (two months ago) link

would you take a beagle on a submarine

Crimson Tide to thread

one month passes...

hello i am 10 episodes into season 2 and here are my thoughts

1. Captain Pike forever

2. Could watch Michael & Spock play go-fuck-yourself-space-chess forever

3. Did it need to take EIGHT episodes to find Spock? Seriously, that drove me round the bend. But maybe I’m just impatient, the leadup episodes were decent.

4. Can we make Michelle Yeoh fight more? I love her so much

5. TALOS IV!!!!!!! So great.

6. Captain Pike forever. Also down with this Spock. Bring on the spinoff because I am so down with these two actors.
