I paired my headphones with it a while ago and the lag was ridiculous. I'm guessing it's down to the headphones I have rather then the Steam Deck.0

Time to update the thread title perhaps? "Not shit" is faint praise for what is probably the best season of Star Trek we've had in over 20 years.
Steady on now. It's decent, but it's no Strange New Worlds. Also it's still got plenty of time to fall apart before the end.0

I'm enjoying this show so much. Yes it still has a few issues but nothing that isn't stopping me really enjoying it.
Wish they'd have just had this story idea from the begining then we could have got a few more seasons of the OG crew, Shaw and Seven.
I'm not sure Stewart would have signed up for it if it was. He may have come around for it now, but for the announcement he stated that he came back because the show was doing something completely different with the character.
That could have just been marketing bullshit of course, but if true we might not have got this season without the nonsense that came before.0
I can totally understand why publishers abandoned E3. It's been steadily losing relevance for a long time, and after Sony dropped out it was only a matter of time.
I will miss it though. I remember seeing it described as a cross between Christmas and Eurovision, and I love both those things. It brought us gifts in the form of surprise reveals and announcements, which it was always fun to get swept up in even if you didn't care that much about the games. Like Eurovision, it was a wonderful combination of the brilliant and the ridiculous. It was as much a delight for the bad as it was the good.
Oh well. At least this means we should have more to look forward to spaced out across the year, but it won't be the same. No more giant enemy crabs, one million troops or RIIIIIIIDGE RACERRRRRRRRs.6

Can anyone remember the conference where someone announces a game and then does a ridiculous punch the ground in excitement manoeuvre? I think it was for a Plants Vs Zombies title.
I think it was the same presentation, but I'm pretty sure the game was Peggle 2.0

It's still a fun show. It's hardly getting a Nu Trek style battering in here.
It is fun, but the universe must be broken as I'm enjoying Picard more at the moment.1

Doesn't it usually power off after 15 minutes? Mine def does. Might be worth plugging it into the PC Xbox and setting it to a time limit as the pad remembers.
Oh that's interesting, thanks. I normally just force it off by holding the Xbox button.0
I've been using an Xbox pad paired over BT and it's been flawless so far. I had an 8Bitdo Ultimate pad in my wishlist before getting the dock in case it didn't work out, but I don't think there's any need for it now.
It would be nice if the pad could remotely turn on the Steam Deck, or indeed if turning off the Deck powered off the pad, but you can't have everything.0

Batman & Robin features a Batman credit card. It's irredeemable.
I don't know, that sounds amazing.2
I've still never seen Batman & Robin, despite owning it on blu-ray for several years.0
I think the conclusion to this plotline so early in the season was entirely down to the show's "cancellation", requiring JMS to cram two seasons worth of plot into one. Then it got uncancelled anyway.0

If the game hadn't been so well regarded this series would've sunk without trace. I think people are reading more into it than is actually there.
I think the show has reached a far wider audience than the game, by all accounts.0
My wife and I started season 2 this week, and both realised we'd forgotten loads from season 1. Does anyone have a decent recap video they'd recommend?0

Not surprised it got moved to Paramount. Might need to rewatch the early series before they all drop off Amazon.
Is it leaving Amazon here then? I think it's always been Paramount+ in the US.0

Random finale thought:
Of course the Enterprise D turns up as already mentioned, and I think I also saw the Enterprise E in the trailer, but I could of confused it with another ship, as they all look a bit similar in NuTrek.
One thing I haven't seen theorised yet, and I guess not that surprising, is about Picard specifically:
I've heard it mentioned by a few people that got an early preview of the show that the ending is a real tear jerker. It seems obvious and perhaps poignant to me, and also due to real life limitations (lol if I'm wrong), that Picard gets killed saving them all. This allows them to segway nicely into this supposed follow up legacy series in the same tone as this final season.
Oh - EDIT and not really a spoiler, but I'll leave it here. Remember that the crew from Lower Decks will be appearing in this with the actual voice actors. Having loved that show I can't wait!!!
Regarding the first paragraphSpoiler
Specifically regarding the Enterprise ESpoiler
It's actually the F that will show up at some point. The ship was introduced in Star Trek Online, of all things. I'm not a fan.
Of course, that's not to say the E won't also make an appearance. Why not?1

How come it doesn't have pad support, given that it seems to have also been released on consoles?
Console releases don't always mean pad support for m&k driven PC games. Diablo III springs to mind,
and I think the XCOM games are the same.
I imagine it's due to the work involved in making a game work using multiple UI options, as opposed to "just" changing the UI to work with one.0

you can skip season 2 and it wont change a thing
You might wonder why some of the season 1 cast members aren't there, but it's not important. That's really it. Even season 1 doesn't have that much of an impact beyond what happens to Picard at the end.1
The Steam Deck has rather changed my attitude to Game Pass too. I still think it's a great service, and amazing value even at full price, but without the ability to install games to SteamOS it's become a bit superfluous for me.
In fact, in some cases it's actively discouraged me from playing certain games. I started Hi-Fi Rush on Game Pass, and loved it, but figured I'd rather play it on the Steam Deck. Streaming a rhythm based game didn't sound too appealing though, and it felt a bit silly to pay for a game I had access to for free elsewhere, so...
I'll probably change my opinion entirely when I inevitably end up with some kind of Xbox again in the future.2

Hang on, Paramount have the Transformers film rights, why haven’t we had Starfleet ship Transformers yet?

As Prequel hater till the day I die, having seen what Filoni’s done with the characters and timeline, I’m surprisingly pumped for the possible heroic return of…
…assuming that Grogu’s on his way to Naboo.
I mean it could conceivable be a de-aged…
I guess, but Filoni’s always rooting for the underdog.
We kind of already had his heroic return if you check out who played his Jedi saviour.0
I was trying out a bunch of stuff with the dock yesterday, and found out some weird stuff about home streaming on the Deck.
I was getting horrendous performance to start with, and couldn't figure out what was causing it. A post on the Steam forum suggested turning off hardware decoding on the Deck, which massively improved things (bizarrely), but there was still a slight, but frequent stutter to contend with.
Then I switched to desktop mode and streaming became flawless, even with hardware decoding back on.
So use desktop mode for home streaming I guess!2
My dock arrived yesterday, after I ordered it on Monday so that was pretty quick delivery really.
It's wonderful! I've got it set up with the lounge TV, and it's finally the mini gaming PC I've always wanted. It's also opened the door to Game Pass streaming in the lounge, not to mention Steam Home Streaming.2
Steam Deck (handheld from Valve) - shipping is 4-8 days from NL to UK
Oh same. I've got a decent PC headset I use, but it's not the most portable option.
Fine around the house though.
