Re: DSC S1: Into the Forest I Go

@OTDP:

"To paraphrase Q and put it bluntly: This place isn't that important. "

Nobody's forcing you to come here- everyday- and ruin everybody's good time. And to poop on the Grand Puba's site no less! By all means man, the door's that way.

Re: DSC S1: Into the Forest I Go

"Correct. As I understand it, Fuller pitched a show in which every season had a different arc and was set in a different time period. This was rejected because this would require different casts and sets. Perhaps they solved this problem by having Discovery branch time periods and universes (same sets, same casts, different universes). "

Oh holy shit I hope so!
Maybe they jumped way in the future way after TNG and DS9 or something?

Re: DSC S1: Into the Forest I Go

When the Klingons finally spoke English it was 1000% better. Oh man I hope this means they continue the universal translator route should they go back to more of them later.

This was a really great episode. Why couldn't they have been cranking them out like this every week? Hopefully a good sign of things to come.

Re: ORV S1: Cupid's Dagger

@Mal:

"Every time I’ve ever gone back to re-watch DS9 from scratch, I skip “Fascination” (the same way I skip “Infection” when I re-watch B5 - why torture myself?"

Hahaha it's pretty bad I agree but I still watch it. I skip 'Let he Who is Without Sin' every time though. Only saw it the one time it first aired. 'Profit and Lace' is worse than either of those, if you can believe it.

Re: ORV S1: Cupid's Dagger

Sorry guys, I liked this one.

Actually aside from the weak pilot episode this is a pretty good show. Liking it more than you-know-what and that's pretty sad on you-know-what's part.

Re: DSC S1: Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad

@Ubik:

"Not even Deep Space Nine made its characters so unique and fascinating so quickly out of the gate"

What!? Sisko is a single father who's lost his wife in a horrible way, who takes over a space station and is basically a new Bajoran god. It's hard to get more unique or fascinating than that- and that was in the pilot.

Re: DSC S1: Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad

This just in, breaking news about a future episode


*SPOILERS* obviously:

Episode 8, "The non-outer glow of lens flares and etc"

The Discovery is flying along and finds a probe- a probe that looks like a giant iphone 7s- and Burnham is struck by a strange beam and sent into a coma. While in the coma, she relives her life on Vulcan where this time she's accepted to the Vulcan science academy. One day on the way to the fishbowl pits at school she stumbles upon a magic kazoo, which she then practices on while in-between finals. Everything was cool.

Then one day, suddenly, the Romulan criminal Nero drills into the crust from space- Nearly hitting Burnham's kazoo!! Once the hole is drilled, Nero detonates the red matter and just as the planet is about to totally implode into itself she wakes up. Saru beams the probe (which has now stopped working) into the cargo bay while Burnham jogs to the scene in a form-fitting DISCO shirt. The probe is not-so-cautiously opened by the former chief of security, brought back from the dead by Lorca's tribble's magical blood, only to be electrocuted when its door opens. Burnham peers inside and finds a small box.

Inside the box? A Chemical Brothers mixed tape and a dusty kazoo, stamped with the initials "M.B." The final scene has her looking out the window, playing a soft Vulcan lullaby on her kazoo while a stoned Stammets looks on. He utters, "Fuck! Can you wail on that thing or what?!"


*END SPOILERS*


I mean, it's easy right? Just take any classic existing episode and tweak it a bit. You can't go wrong! Imagine what I could write if I actually TRIED, right? Hey Disco team, hire me!

Re: DSC S1: Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad

Hey DSC has indeed managed to do the impossible:

Nobody at all is complaining about the ship's design anymore. That's a miracle unto itself, considering the massive backlash it originally got.

I assume throwing a death ball at Miss would bring up one of those magical traveling force fields he had on him throughout the episode.

@Jonah:

"How does the space whale even "swim" around in space? Does it have engines"

This isn't an issue with me as plenty of other life forms have been shown to exist in Trek before-

Crystalline Entity
Tin Man
The baby leech thing that gloms into the ENT-D after they accidentally phaser it's mum to death.

Etc.

Re: DSC S1: Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad

@Skeetch:

I enjoyed the episode but your points are pretty spot on. I don't know why they keep using or references music from today either. It's not like Mozart or other classical music which has already endured hundreds of years. We're talking a Fugees remake of a Bee Gees song haha!

I agree with the ending being REALLY stupid on Starfleet's part. At first I thought the arms dealer was going to be a badass killer like the one Quark dealt with on DS9 but these people were really....meh. You're going to get married and be.. SUPER ANNOYED all the time! That's punishment enough for all these murders and crimes you've committed 60 times in a row! And don't tell who know you about our Spore drive ok? Haha what?

They should hire better writers for sure, they have the money obviously.

Re: DSC S1: Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad

At first I was really mad that they were going to rip off "Cause and Effect" but by the end I gotta say this turned out to be really pretty good! Stammets is awesome and finally the crew are creating some decent chemistry.

Though I wish they could have handled this in a way that wasn't so blatantly a "Cause and Effect" rip.

Re: ORV S1: Krill

I haven't watched this show since the (good) episode with them wanting to change the baby girl into a boy. This was a pretty good one too!

The jokes at the beginning were all good and fit naturally, though I'll echo the sentiment that they sort of went way overboard on the 'trying to fit in' jokes while on the Krill ship. And the second "THEY WILL BE...." was corny and took away from the first 'they will be'. Don't do Yoda hahaha.

I'll go back and watch another episode I missed likely tonight. It's definitely gotten much better since the pilot.

Re: DSC S1: Choose Your Pain

It'd be interesting if we have been watching the evil mirror universe side of things this whole time, and at the very end the real team of Starfleet good guys appears and that's the squad we'll follow from S2 on.

I mean let's take the first episode (non-two parter, which was likely added on later) is it special? I mean, is it *Bryan Fuller& special? Everyone and their mom said how great this guy was and oh man we were going to be in for some good shit however nothing so far seems to point towards these new / great ideas. I know he quit a while ago but he had already written a few of these hadn't he?

Maybe it was his idea that we see things from the MU from the get-go, and then let us in on it way later. Think a large-scale version of that O'Brien episode where we've been watching the clone the whole time. That's what I mean.
