    Anyone else catch it yet? It definitely does not feel like the TNG show or even the movies really. I liked it, but it felt really over produced with the absurd amount of music and whatnot. I wasnt sure if i was going to buy the reasoning to get Picard out of retirement, but its done pretty well and it was believable. Overall, I liked it and Ill keep with it for a bit.

    Does it have as much lens flare as Discovery?

    I don't have CBS AA, but I think that the show has promise.

    Stewart was always the one elevating the SFNG material, I imagine that he will do so again.

    Just watched it, and I agree.

    I'm never really a big fan of the "dreamy" sequences, but once they got through them a bit and started to explain things a bit more, I was enjoying it.

    I'll keep watching.

    Seems like its kind of going for a similar theme of Star Trek Generations where its a far more personal story of Picard rather than him just being a conduit for the expanded Star Trek world.

    Thats Captain Riker to you, motherfucker.

    These guys are a little too harsh with their nerdy shit, but I do enjoy their reviews.



    The show has already been renewed.

    6 episodes in and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. It's kind of fun seeing old Star Trek characters pop up unexpectedly.

    Like Hugh as Director of the Borg Reclamation Project.
