    Yeah, maybe the 1970's version of BSG with all it's campy hokiness
    I was trying to avoid commenting on that blasphemy. Good thing I don't post there or I would make lists of stupidity as I watched.

    Someone gave me a nice compliment after I made a 10 point post listing things from a Walking Dead episode that angered me. That was without taking notes and fueled by righteous indignation as a viewer

    Or how about the little things like people on the bridge of a starship in orbit seeing (without sensors) two sets of footprints on the planet below during a 100 mile wide duststorm?
    Minute details to overlook

    The entire Saru progression is wacky. Last season they really played up the Kelpien flight or flight syndrome. If we sense any danger, ganglia extends and we get the hell out.

    And he makes it to Starfleet lieutenant? How?

    I fully expected scenes of a Klingon destroyer on the main viewing screen, the captain orders Saru to raise shields. No response. Camera pans over and Saru's station is vacant with a quick cut showing him in the fetal position, crying, hiding in his botanical closet behind some ferns.

    Captain du jour - SARUUUUU, WHERE ARE YOU!!!

    I think he holds the rank of Lt Commander now

    But yeah, they've been all over the place with his character development.

    Goes along with all the other SJW BS that they throw into the show.

    It was either on that Crude Reviews site or another place that I read that it makes no sense to paint it that way. It's the 23rd century, earth has been united as one, everything is far more 'utopian' than it is now, you would think that they would be far more 'woke' when it came to mining anything than we are here in the early 21st century.

    In a bridge scene from the last episode I counted six female characters at the various stations, with one black looking dude in the background

    The NCC-#Woke

    On that recap podcast the guy podcaster was sure one of the bridge crew was a robot.(I thought the same) Female podcaster who I like informs him she's not a robot, she has a gender and is female!

    Me thinking while listening *There's more vagina on that bridge that all four previous Star Treks combined*

    Next thought *Pike is lovin it*

    At first I liked Pike, one of the very few bright spots, but for being such a decorated Starfleet Captain as we know he is/becomes, he sure lets Burnham change his mind about things and sway his decision making.

    They filmed Hell on Wheels real close to here and I recall reading about how Anson Mount did everything. Acted, wrote, directed, producer...and there was some allusion to him being a real ladies man. Not a dick, just an old school kind of comment.

    Bet all that changed with him joining the NCC-1701-Vaginatothestars
