"Captain Kirk's First Adventure Was About Choosing Between Two Friends" https://buttondown.email/charliejane/archive/captain-kirks-first-adventure-was-about-choosing/ — yeah this/ might start a TOS rewatch
But also it looks amazing, the cast is great, and the plotting is so much more … deft? … than other New Trek, except maybe Lower Decks
Cool/horrifying that a second U.S. Clvil War is now canonically the origin of the Eugenics Wars AND World War III?
May have missed some plot points in that first episode because I kept making involuntary incoherent excited noises
Tired: the best #StarTrek episodes are the ones with really big zappy space battles
Wired: the best Trek episodes are the ones with high-concept sci-fi meditations on the nature of humanity
Inspired: the best Trek episodes are the ones with people stuck in elevators

Pretty solid penultimate tying up of the B plot. On to the finale!

Emergency Catharsis Hologram
Why is holo-Ellnor dodging bullets?
Really excellent casting for Preteen Jean-Luc. The kid’s a good actor but also he looks a LOT like the one from that episode where the Enterprise officers get de-aged
“These catacombs are full of deadly pitfalls and also one of my formative traumas… let’s use them to outflank the Borg!”
“I’m not — well I *wasn’t* a violent man, Picard!”
And it appears I can’t un-spoiler-flag lower down the thread?
