For anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, this is the segment I believe Kirin is talking about:(Though as a tech geek who's worked in AR and tracking stuff, seeing the fucking enormous tracked video wall they built as a better-than-green-screen getting put together was also pretty fun.)
Yeah 2nd episode didn’t hit on all cylinders like the first one did, but it was still generally a good time. I really like the Stamets/Book pairing actually. Stamets has been through a lot of shit and has mostly come out the other side by now. So it’s really wonderful and compassionate that he is willing to just be there and help Book by just being there for him in ways people who have never felt loss as acutely can’t do as intuitively. I’m very excited for where the show is going, can’t wait to see tonight’s episode at midnight.Didn't the the 2nd ep so much. Still good, plus more Saru, and look at Galactic politics. The Stamets / Book pairing weird. Mostly because Stamets seems like he's been sidelined since s1.
It was tremendous! A little overly saccharine at times, but I thought poignant and the themes here relatable and useful.can’t wait to see tonight’s episode at midnight.
That's the whole point of that storyline, and it ties perfectly into what I was just saying. She didn't trust the Federation authorities to help, and thus a cavalcade of preventable tragedies ensued as a result. And maybe the pre-Burn, or immediate post-Burn Federation would have lived up to her poor expectations, but as Saru said in the first episode to his own peoples - this is a new era. And we can't keep dragging our old baggage along into the future because it'll just keep weighing us down. Had this rogue Qowat Milat approached things better, this tragedy might have been averted. And hopefully in the future, this even will engender more trust in the Federation and its institutions, so long as they keep being good faith stewards of this galactic society.I'm not entirely convinced there wasn't a better path open to the main guest character that didn't involve killing her friends and colleagues
I’m on someone else’s subscription, but that’s a bonus for a lot of folks.It feels nice to unsubscribe from Prime though. Ghastly service
Yeah, I really hope the old Trek shows stay for some more time on Netflix here. I'm really not interested in needing another service for that.This is just in the US for now. Crave will still get distribution rights in Canada for the foreseeable future, as long as Canadian law keeps nuTrek on Canadian distribution channels. I imagine they'll want the EU to follow suit eventually, but it'll be a while until they can get the rights and infrastructure set up in the EU to even merit a shift like this.
