Goosebumps, I have so high expectations that I'm afraid to be disappointed. But I'm SO willing to take the risk
@signaleleven @fribbledom My feelings exactly. I SO want this to succeed, but there's a lot that can be done wrong, I fear. Things tend to get better in our memories the longer they are past, and TNG was great to begin with. So, very high expectations to meet. OTOH, Patrick Stewart is still a great actor and I'd think he would not have agreed to play Picard in a series that wouldn't do justice to the original. I can't wait to see the result.
@fribbledom @fnord I found that the second season did a lot to address that criticism. They chose to start both seasons with a big epic that allowed them some freedom to capture non trek fans, but now they are "reeling them in" and the second season was better.
I disagree with it being better if it wasn't called star trek. I'd have felt even less connection to it, and many of the universe constraints (regularly bent or broken, but yeah) would have felt arbitrary.
@signaleleven @fribbledom The Orville, OTOH, despite not being Star Trek, felt much more like it than Discovery. That series was a very pleasant surprise, and I really love it.
On top of that, it's really heartwarming to see that Seth McFarlane is obviously a great Star Trek fan, and his creation is honored with so many cameos of Star Trek actors that approve.
@fribbledom But where is the crew? There is Seven of Nine and Data, but no one else I recognize.
Well could be interesting because this could potentially be a series where we get to know a bit what happened after the dominion war.
@fribbledom thank you for that. I had to link to the London VPN endpoint because they put a geo-filter on it. LOL. But wow, what a teaser!
@fribbledom the man does not age lol 😂
@fribbledom Patrick Stewart there with some extremely shiny young people.
@fribbledom About time they continued with the old timeline
@fribbledom i once read someone describe it as ‘thunder dipped in honey’ and my god, if that isn’t accurate.
