Re: DSC S1: The Vulcan Hello / Battle at the Binary Stars

I saw the first two episodes. The 2nd episode was better than the 1st. There were some things I loved, and things I didn't love. It was a mixed bag. Things I didn't care for, I'll begin with the theme song. It's not good. It just seems like they were lazy. Where's the creativity? Another thing that disappointed, was the character development of the crew. I'm sure we'll get to know the rest of the crew later, but for now , they did not do a good job in introducing them. The dialog in parts was stilted. Having said that, Burnham is a great character with great potential. Martin-Green was solid. Saru also has good potential. James Frain was great in the few scenes he was in as Sarek. Klingons. Excellent choice to once again, bring them into the fold. I have always thought that the rich Klingon culture is one of the best aspects about Star Trek. I found myself completely transfixed with their scenes. The continuity was great, particularly invoking Khaless. Lastly, I just want to mention the production value, set pieces and effects. They are off the charts good for a tv show. Here is where I mention the influence of GoT, which has raised the bar with any tv show that cares to step on its level. That's a good thing. The end result is that we get a fantastic looking show. The 1st two episodes served as an introduction into Burnham's character. As the season progresses, I expect big things. Overall, I was pleased, especially after hearing the drama surrounding the production over the past two years. Good stuff.

Re: DS9 S7: The Siege of AR-558

This episode is in my top 5 of the whole series. It's expertly written. I applaud the writers for going to a place that very rarely is shown in the Star Trek universe. The horrors of war. The Dominion War dominated the DS9 story line as we all know, and I think it was brilliant to show an episode from this perspective. The scene with Quark and Nog at the beginning, was tremendous. It's those little stand out scenes, that tend sneak up and surprise you. That's what I enjoy so much about this show. You could be moving along, business as usual watching an episode, and then bam, they hit you with something like that. They've obviously done land based, hand to hand combat themed episodes in the past, but for some reason, this episode struck a chord with me. It packed an emotional punch. Perhaps watching Nog, a character I grew to admire more and more as the series progressed, so valiantly help the team, only to lose his leg, got to me. He represents the viewer in a lot of ways. Very well done. This one was a pleasant surprise when I first saw it.
