An emotional computer running a military ship is probably the stupidest thing Discovery has ever done. It makes absolutely no logical sense.

 

It makes sense in that everyone in this YA show is purely driven by emotion and identity issues.

I keep forgetting that this is available through Pluto and miss it. Sounds like I'm not missing much If it's anything like the last few seasons (crap).

 

Also, slightly unrelated but got confused the other day as Sky have a free service called Peacock TV that has just been added. It features loads more stuff to potentially watch and I thought this was where Disco was. NOPE!

Peacock is NBC’s streaming service, while Trek is owned by CBS (whose streaming service in the States is called Paramount Plus, confusingly enough).

I think it does in the context they've created. Any of the senior crew are emotional beings with the power to destroy the ship, refuse to follow orders or whatever. Zora is no different.

 

I actually really liked that last episode, and for the most part I've quite enjoyed this season so far too. It finally feels like Star Trek, and without just being an attempt to emulate the old shows. Its still far from perfect, but I think it's getting there.

 

I'm sure things will immediately return to business as usual next time though. :ph34r:

The stupidest thing Discovery ever did was having Saru go up to a genocidal maniac, who had killed most of his people and eaten them in her universe, and told her (paraphrasing) that they "may not always have seen eye-to-eye" but that she had been a good member of the crew.

I watched it, and it made me hate the show all over again. It was a terrible episode where Burnham and chum had a lovely time playing at space MMA and some kind of alien poker, which was literally just poker with funny shaped cards. It also featured a changeling, who was just there for no reason.

 

I thought the season was actually doing alright up until this point, so hopefully this was a bit of a blip.

Jesus. There's new star trek apparently on season 4!

The very idea that I'm so uninterested in it is just bizarre and that I'd probably rather watch move along home on repeat for the entire length of a series of discovery.

So stories like measure of a man, or O'brien and ichar, or nog and his fucked leg would have all been better if they didn't actually have a plot but everyone was crying? What? That must be written by a cbs schill, surely?

Humanity was a mistake.

 

He's also an idiot - how and what are both plot-related. Emotion is related to plot and plot that is nonsensical means emoting rings false. Like every single time Burnham turns on the waterworks.

 

You can't have a successful character with only two modes - smugly confident and bawling.

I didn't quite finish this week's episode yesterday, which probably says it all. It was so boring!

 

I'll probably finish it today if I can be arsed, but it was a classic example of the show mishandling its serialised format by just dragging things out.

 

Spoiler

The premise was kind of exciting. We're going through the galactic barrier! This would probably be a small section of a TNG episode, but you could definitely fill out a whole episode with it if you made the journey interesting enough.

 

Discovery doesn't though. It gives you snippits of the journey intercut with Book's mate offloading his backstory.

 

We'll see where it goes, but more than ever right now I think this season's story could have been told far better as a condensed two or three parter in an episodic show.

Fucking discovery writers man. It's not like this is a tiny blunder from not knowing 50 years of lore. It's literally the main point and usp of the ship, in the same series! :facepalm:
