I didn’t plan on it, but my stuck-at-home recovery is kind of turning into a Star Trek recovery.
The day I came home, the season finale of Picard came out, as well as the series premiere of Strange New Worlds. I also remembered that I had a few episodes of season three of Discovery to watch, and then all of season four.
Picard was okay. Probably not as good as the first season, but still okay. Discovery… again, okay. Season three, I mean. I’m watching s4e1 as I type this, so the jury is still out.
I’m very happy with Strange New Worlds so far. There are only two episodes so far, but they both feel like real Star Trek in a way that Picard and Discovery do not (which was the goal, right?). I think it’s the lack of a season long story arc that does it, but if that’s the way they want to go, each episode needs to be really strong. So far so good.
