Re: DSC S2: Point of Light

I agree with almost everything said before. Bad bad writing! And so much about it (the design, stilted dialogues, flat characters) doesn't even feel like star trek, but some pulp fantasy series, and not one of the good ones. when GOT daenerys claimed the title of Mother (Mhysa), it was the logical consequence of three or four seasons character development, even more, the logical conclusion of a carefully developed myth. Stealing that plotline in such a cheap and amateurish way is just embarrassing and accomplishes nothing. - section 31 worked well on ds9 because we understood it was the absolute exception to established federation ethical standards. who is supposed to take anything happening outside section 31 seriously anymore if it becomes so central to the general framework of federation politics and warfare. Even more annoying that all this is so obviously only happening because some device was desperately needed to bring back Michelle Yeoh. As will be the case with Wilson Cruz. These are fine actors, but fan service shouldn't be more important than plausible storytelling.

Re: TNG S1: Skin of Evil

@Martin...much to my recent surprise, breaking the "black guy red shirt dies, pretty white girl lives" trope had been done in TOS. I had not really watched TOS since my Mom used to record them off TV reruns onto VHS tapes when I was little and I'd watch a few of her favorites. That started me as a fan but Next Gen was the Trek I truly grew up with and knew well (and all the series that would follow). And while I loved the TOS movies (well, at least the evens lol) I always thought TOS series was a bit too hokey to take the time to rewatch. But my husband finally started binging on Netflix and I caught many I'd never seen. I think the ep was called "By Any Other Name". Was actually kinda shocked when they broke cliche.
