Re: DSC S3: That Hope Is You, Part 2

@SlackerInc
"The most pernicious problem, in my view (and this played out with the Star Wars movies as well), is that there really are some "deplorable" "bad fans" who have some very ugly attitudes which quickly become apparent in the toxic language they use. This implicitly tarnishes everyone else who complains about Michael on this show..."
I thoroughly agree. And isn't ironic that, while the writers intended to show that a black woman can sit in the chair, be a badass, and have no fear of showing her emotions, what I see is a mutineering, emotionally unstable murderer (who graduated to mass murderer in this last episode)?
They would have been better off with Harvey Weinstein as lead, at least we could have then hated him with a clear conscience.

Re: DSC S3: That Hope Is You, Part 2

So it wasn't just me imagining it, Burnam's escape plan did indeed include the gratuitous murder of thousands.

How far has Trek come from the days when a Starfleet captain would be shaken to his soul by accidentally killing a single lifeforms (Picard, Galaxy's Child), or question the morality of alll his actions for being indirectly involved in the murder of half a dozen Rumulans (Sisko, In the Pale Moonlight)

Re: DSC S3: That Hope Is You, Part 2

I want to add my voice to the chorus of despair and say that this was the deserved conclusion to an appalling season of television.

Like in the previous two seasons, once the writers climb a self made mountain of nonsense, and find themselves 60 minutes from the end not knowing how to get down from it, all restraints come off, and we get to witness some stupefying idiocy.

I am off to greener pastures. This other German scientist has also had enough.

Can someone explain me why they had to eject the core before jumping away from inside the Viridian? Just to "Kill 'em All"? That would be mighty evil.

Re: DSC S3: Su'Kal

Isn´t it fitting that in this cringey soap opera the Burn was not caused by science or technobabble, but rather by EMOTIONS?
Fortunately DSC has this side of things well covered: Burnham will cry the dilithium back into existence.

Re: DSC S3: Unification III

The selection of Tilly as "Number One" (I won't call it a promotion, since her rank didn't change) is just one of the many baffling rank/heirarchy/duty inconsistencies in this series - albeit the most high profile.

What duty has been assigned to Cmdr. Reno, an engineer, working with (under?) scientist Lt. Cmdr. Stamets? Does the ship have a chief engineer?

Now that Cmdr. Nhan has left (without either saying goodbye to her comrades, or packing a suitcase or even just her toothbrush), who is the chief of security? Does anybody on Discovery care? Do we?

Cmdr. Georgiou was recruited to help in the war against the Klingons and then (with her current rank) in Section 31. What's her job on this ship? Does she report for duty every morning at 07:00?

This is just a small sample of the many (many, many) things, big and little that distract me while watching an average episode of this series. My suspension of disbelief is repeatedly interrupted and I am constantly reminded that I am indeed watching a bunch of actors akwardly reciting a poor script.

Funnily enough, its low quality turned watching STD into a little family event: we gather each week to make fun of the series, instead of to have fun with it, constantly pausing and commenting instead of being sucked into the story and forgetting that we are together on the couch.

Re: DSC S3: Unification III

No one commented on the continuing presence of Book aboard Discovery. In NuTrek, can anyone just park their ship in the shuttle bay (a bay which, hilariously, has no doors, just a force field. I wonder what happens in case of a power failure) and get along for the ride? Or do you get a special pass if you are shagging a bridge officer?

Re: TOS S1: The Man Trap

This was probably written out of hatred for people who put extra salt on their meals without having tasted.

Quite stupid that no one recognized the incredible usage of salt as a hint for the existence of something strange.

And here we also have the dying of the no-names right from the start. In a ridiculous way.

Very disappointing to see this. I was such a fan as a kid. The monster looks stupid.

Two stars solely for historical relevance, even if it wasn't even really the first episode.
