  1. I personally had no problems with leaving Mudd behind, considering the last two episodes we've seen him in Star Trek (three if we count the animated series) that guy is practically asking to be shot out of an airlock. Quite honestly I was in full support of Lorca leaving him behind, though it does answer the question why Mudd was so desprate to try and run away from the Enterprise back in the original series. He's met Captain Lorca. I honestly am taking quite a liking to Captain Lorca, yeah he's clearly a dubious character, but I have so far no doubt about his loyalities, they are clearly to me aligned with the Federation. Although we hear him confess having blown up his ship to spare his crew the torture of klingon imprisonment, I don't think we have the full story here and I can't wait to see more of it. I'm once again unable to predict what the show is going to do, I had all kinds of ideas what was going to happen next and they were all blown out of the water once more. So i'm just going to sit back and enjoy the ride. Loved this episode, it's seriously shaping up to be at least my third favorite series after the original and next generation.
  2. Star Trek: Discovery

    I honestly can't say, because I didn't really notice any odd camera angels and that much lensflare in the premiere, I tend not to pay much heed to things like that. I've personally had no problems with the visuals, sorry I can't be of more help.
  3. Dammit Discovery, everytime I think I know what direction you're going, you take a sharp turn in the other direction. I seriously didn't expect them to immediately use the Tardigrate like that, I was almost convinced it would be this big controversial surprise that Captain Lorca was keeping, but nope almost immediatly he's going "hey I'm keeping the beast you met on the Glenn, find out how it kills." I think I'm just going to stop trying to predict, clearly this show is just going to continue to surprise me at every turn. Also that chief of security, what an idiot. I honestly couldn't even feel sad at her death. I mean she knew what that creature was capable of, saw it in action, ignored the so far only expert on it who quite clearly said "we don't know if sedatives work on that thing" and I don't care if it was Burnham who said it, opens the containment field to try and cut a claw from it. What a prime specimen for the Darwin Awards, I think we have a winner. Sheesh. The Klingon b-story, I was not really as surprised by it. I'm seeing already some snivel of the Klingons from the TOS era there. It will be interesting to see how that continues to develope.
  4. The Son's of Mogh. the ending bothers me.

    I do get what both of you are saying, but honestly it just makes me dislike the ending that much more. It feels cheap and more like they just chickened out of letting Kurn die, which I would have preferred over what we got instead. But that's just me.
  5. I don't personally think he'll will necessarily snap or go off the deep end. However, I do believe he will be controversial in his methods to end the war. My main reason for thinking that is that so far it seems too obvious, so far the show has not been that obvious to me. Also since I watch this on Netflix, it takes me straight to the After Trek show and the show writer answered very plainly to a tweet with a similar theory that the captain will not snap. If that is true or not I don't know, but he's evaded before a lot of plot specific questions so seeing answer so plainly to this one is rather interesting.
  6. I really liked the newest episode. They acknowledged that Burnham was not liked for being a mutineer and started the war and she wasn't pulled back into star fleet because of her ties fo Sarek, have to admit I was a little worried they would use that. How they established the captain of the Discovery, it was well within his character to get Burnham onboard, he definitaely struck me as someone to take a risk like that. However I must admit for a whole lot of the episode and even at the end, I felt like this: So I can't really complain so far, but we are still very early in the season, so who knows what I'll think as we get more episode in.
  7. I wow, I just realized that I'm older then all the Star Trek spinoffs. Only the original series and the some of the original cast movies are older than me. Happy birthday TNG
  8. Okay I got to be honest, I love Kurn, Worf's younger brother. He kind of showed a bit of a mirror of what Worf could have been if Worf had been raised in the Klingon Empire instead of the Federation. However, lately and propably due to hindsight of what happens to Worf later, the ending of Son's of Mogh episode in DS9 really has started to bother me. Basically they decided to wipe Kurn out, in the weak excuse that he could live again as a Klingon. So a friend of their father's agrees to adopt Kurn with a new name and the false identity of being his son. Why couldn't they just do all that without altering Kurn and wiping his memories? Martok practically does the same thing for Worf later in the series. Noggra seems to be a rather agreeable fellow considering he agreed to play along with a deception to give Kurn a new live, why wouldn't he agree to just simply adopt Kurn? Then again I have to admit, I never liked how DS9 handled the Klingons and Worf a lot of the times. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind there is conflict between allies and the Klingons are the dictionary definition of uneasy alliance, but I don't know, I think they were sometimes trying too hard.
  9. 15 (!) years later...

    I recall that for a brief period I was actually among the youngest active members on The OL, but then even younger people began joining, wasn't one of our youngest only ten or something?
  10. Anyone else try out 3D printing?

    I have not, I'm one of those weirdos who never goes into new technology until it several years old.
  11. Jodie Whittaker is the 13th Doctor

    I'm cautious about it, I don't downright hate the idea at all, however I just don't trust the current show writers with the idea. The new series has had this big habit of almost every companion being a "love interest" or at least being love sick for the Doctor. I don't mind romance in TV or other stories, but to me The Doctor has always been an aromantic character, keep in mind though I'm heavily biased, when I got into Doctor Who, I started from the start from the 1st Doctor before I even touched the new series (I tend to need to watch thing from the start to be able to get into them) However I have not completely written it off, I will give this a chance, but as I said, I'm cautious.
  12. True, usually that kind of character in Star Trek would be one of the villains.
  13. I follow him on Twitter and Tumblr, I've also visted his webpage, it's actually fun to read his reviews of early TNG episodes.

  15. Star Trek: Discovery

    I'm not a fan of the intro either, it just feels, lazy.
