    It does, but it’s never amazing.
  2. This video does a good job of summing up the massive tone shift between pre-Abrams/Kurtzman Star Trek and what we have today. At its best, Star Trek is/was thoughtful in its exploration of humanity. 'Modern' Star Trek has no interest in that because its written by teenagers.
  3. I wish they wouldn’t have so many ships for these encounters. Aside from the fact that it doesn’t fit with the idea of the Romulans being a broken people, it lessens the stakes. A stand off between a few ships always feels far more engaging because the audience knows and cares about the crew on those ships. Instead we get Star Wars style battles in Star Trek that lack any kind of impact. Kurtzman is such a hack.
  4. Isn’t the early release just the U.S? I had it pre-ordered on iTunes and it’s still not available.
  5. DS9 was often thematically ‘dark.’ The difference between it and Discovery/Picard is that it was written by grownups.
  6. They’ve probably forgotten. Although all of this could be explained away by saying that the Dominion War ruined the utopian economy of the federation and there have had to be changes in order to recover. Nothing will be explained though.
  7. I don’t think it’s this, no other programme I watch has this problem.
  8. I don’t have a lot of that left after his involvement in Nemesis....
  9. It’s probably just me but I’m finding the sound mix in recent episodes really off-putting. Music seems to be ridiculously loud and dialogue really quiet. Not that it really matters, the story telling this season has been pretty poor so far.

    Mourinho likes spending money. Daniel Levy doesn’t like spending money. How is this going to work?
  12. Ah, actually I wasn’t a massive fan. It’s a nice idea but ends up being a bit tedious to play.
