Okay this is controversial, but I believe that Doctor Who was on Star Trek the original series. In Assignment: Earth, the crew time travels to the past and meets a time traveler, Gary Seven. We know little about the travels of the forgotten Doctor played by John Hurt, and there is often memory loss after a regeneration, so the Gary Seven name could be due to memory confusion. We don’t see a Tardis in the episode, but still ...

It's just a series of cute 10-minute animated shorts featuring the tardigrade from Star Trek Disco as he munches his fave kinds of fungus; falls asleep and snoozes contentedly; plays in a field with like otters or something
Picard show, potentially good news (in my opinion) Show more
"‘Discovery is a bullet. Picard is a very contemplative show. It will find a balance between the speed of Discovery and the nature of what Next Gen was, but I believe it will have its own rhythm.’"
I was hoping it was going to be a more relaxed character study thing, so this is kinda relieving to hear
That said - I'm not crazy about Kurtzman's vagueness. A balance between the 'speed of Discovery' and the 'nature of Next Gen'.

Star Trek DS9/Star Wars (+ Return of the Jedi minor spoiler) Show more
I dunno if I've posted this before - but I really love the Breen. They're the kind of thing I simultaneously want to and don't want to see more of (because it's nice when mysterious things exist as just that, instead of being extrapolated and explained to the point of overkill)
I do also wonder if they're all just a bunch of Princess Leias in disguise
I noticed tonight that IMDB has the schedule for when Season 2 of Discovery will be aired. Starting on January 17, we’ll have a new episode each Thursday right on through the return of Daylight Saving time here in the US. That’s welcome news as winter deepens and hibernation instincts kick in. Something to look forward to. ✨
Oh Saru.... STDISCO spoilers Show more
So I just watched the third short trek. Really personal and touching. Barely a space ship in it and the logic is a bit stretched due to the short time. But it reinforces how dedicated this series is character, this can't be a bad thing in the long run.
It also gives us a huge insight into the Georgio-Saru relationship. I'll have to go back and watch the series opener now because there is no way he would have ever gone along with Burman and she had to have known that
Short Trek: The Brightest Star thoughts Show more
I really enjoyed this Saru-themed Short Trek, and I bet it will be among the more popular ones since it plugs directly into Discovery. Listened to the discussion about it on The Lower Decks and they drew a nice parallel to Pen Pals, one of my favorite TNG episodes. And, as others have noted, his species name (Kelpien) seems to have some literal roots what with all that kelp they were collecting...
