    Cool review! I never knew Hot Wheels made little models like that! I'm a longtime trek fan 🖖 but not as much the Kelvin Timeline etc. but that was a great looking starship. Hot Wheels did a cool job with Azteking the paint.

    I can't wait to see that space battle scene in the What We Left Behind documentary. They have taken that scene and a number of others and upgraded them to HD resolution. I just finished watching the first episode of season 2 of Discovery. Definitely going in a different direction now that the war is behind. I liked it.

    🖖 Out of respect for @nosweargamer's thread I've split our Star Trek conversation off into its own thread here:

    We should probably move this to a Star Trek thread and not clog up NSG's post...but you asked my opinion of Discovery... I thought it was absolutely brilliant...up until episode 10. At which point it turned into something really awful. The finale was not great. Again, all my opinion. I'm sorry if anyone is insulted. I hope season 2 returns to the greatness of episodes 1-9.

    Meanwhile, episode 1 of DS9 totally stands up and is absolutely great. The metaphor of baseball for time is one of my favorite things. And so many good actors and characters here. Sisko, Odo, Quark, Garak, any one of the Jeffrey Comb's characters, Worf, Martok, Dukat, etc, etc, etc. Memorable and really well done.

    I'm totally with you Justin. For me, the whole premise of Voyager is flawed right out of the gate. You telling me they couldn't use the caretaker's station to get home and just leave a bomb-on-a-timer behind? You telling me that kazon that don't have water somehow have ships capable of matching Voyager? They risked this whole trip home to "save" the Ocampa...yet then flew off and left them behind anyways? And yes, Neelix should have been dropped off almost immediately. What exactly did he bring to the crew? How useful could he have been as a navigator anyways? I agree, Kate Mulgrew and Tim Russ were excellent. And everyone else....meh.

    I agree with that completely. DS9 really tested the limits of Federation ideology. "It's easy to be a saint in paradise" was a line originally written for Picard that was cut from a TNG script and ended up in Sisko's mouth on DS9. Very true. Have been viewing both this winter and realized just how deep the writing and acting was on DS9 and just how juvenile Voyager could be at its worst. Such a missed opportunity. One scene in particular comes to mind that I saw recently (I'll have to go back and cite the episode) it opened with a shot of Neelix's hobbit feet "dancing" around their Raisa program (or whatever) they liked to play on the Holodeck and it was just... I wanted to go back and watch DS9. Wasn't Neelix supposed to be a "trader" familiar with different species across the Delta quadrant? He was like a saccharine version of Quark if Quark drank Root Beer. Kate Mulgrew is a good actress and Tuvok made for a wonderful Vulcan character but beyond that, the crew were Starfleet's C- Students and the entire premise felt tedious. The Maquis just integrates with the rest of the crew and become senior officers? I don't want to bash poor Voyager but too many times it felt like it veered into silliness. Then at the final episode it's Deus ex machina and everyone gets home thanks to a magical Borg wormhole. Whatevs. I could go on but that wouldn't be logical.

    The third one is the most forgettable one of them all. An alien lady that calls Scotty "Mr. Scotty" is about all I remember. #2 had Honeydew Cumberbun as Khan and a bunch of other hooey. I made it through watching TOS, TNG, and DS9, but I stopped at Season 2 of Voyager because I thought it was really not that good. I may or may not go back to it. We'll see. DS9 was MUCH better than I remember it originally. Voyager was much worse IMO.

    Yeah, I was excited to see this first movie and thought it was fine, saw the second and thought it was decent, but I have yet to see the third, and really don't have a big desire too. Looking back, I guess I didn't find the first two films that memorable,since I can't remember much about them now, lol. In other Trek news, my wife and I recently completed watching the original series and have moved onto Next Gen.
