Re: ORV S2: All the World Is Birthday Cake

This show needs to be funny/edgy again. When Ed's not around -- and, increasingly, even when he is -- the dialogue is bland and over-earnest.

And, yes, religion, taken literally, makes no sense -- apart from a way for people to impose order on the world and on each other.

Pointing that out is easy. But how about some nuance -- what if Rubenstein hadn't believed, but his political life depended on his acting like he believed? Or if Jelliac slave labour was necessary for their economy? People in power benefit from religion, misinformation and even prejudice. Sure, some are fervent believers, but I suspect many aren't.

Re: DSC S1: Will You Take My Hand?

Yeah, I don't really understand what happened there. The war's over because L'Rell is holding them all hostage, essentially? Does the bomb go off if they assassinate her? And the Federation is still susceptible to a fatal Klingon attack at pretty much any time?

Cool to see the Enterprise, I guess -- but none of the "Starfleet values, Hooray!" stuff felt earned.
