Re: PIC S1: Absolute Candor

@Bold Helmsman

I've noticed that, too, about the old fans treating the new fans like they aren't "real fans." For what it's worth, this older fan used to think the same thing about newer fans, and it took me a while to come around.

Anyhoo, welcome to the fandom and to the page. Whether you've watched everything Trek-related or you just got started with Trek, you're a real fan in my book.

Re: PIC S1: Maps and Legends

I liked this episode.

Concerning the Utopia Planetia workers being openly racist towards androids, I can believe it. If you're in your own little work culture and not exposed to other people and ideas, I can see how the workers' attitudes would develop.

I'm not fond of the f-bombs. Previous comments have referred to the context, which I agree with. Also, let's remember just how big a deal it was for Kirk to say "let's get the hell out of here" in The City on the Edge of Forever.

Three stars from me.

And episode 3 is when Picard finally says "engage" and I lose my Trekkie fanboy shit.

Re: PIC S1: Remembrance

Absolutely loved the premiere. Plenty of tidbits to reward longtime fans, but plenty of new stuff to keep the story moving forward. Picard is indeed the captain I remember.

I loved the effects, too. I also enjoyed seeing the characters interact with computers and databases. It felt like the producers took special care to make it look more futuristic, but to still make it feel like a logical evolution from the LCARS displays we saw in 24th-century era Trek.

I'm curious about what's being kept as canon and what's not. For a while, I thought the Countdown comics that preceded the 2009 film were canon. Orci stated that they were canon, and Kurtzman did co-write those comics. But I know, as a rule, only the broadcast shows and films are considered canon.
