I finally figured out who Spock on Star Trek Discovery reminds me of.

Control is the most boring enemy ever. Terminator 2 did the shapeshifting nemesis better. Stargate SG1 did the replicating nanobots better. The Borg peaked w ST:V finale.

Can Star Trek in 2020 give us something new?

Canon universe would be new now. No more Kelvin/Kelvinish universe. No more 25% rule. Viacom, plz fix this!

How about a mystery? First contact. Unexplained otherworldly phenomena. Something other than war war war.

Roddenberry's utopian vision of the future—we need this back now.

TBH I'm dreading the finale. S1 had twists and turns, but you always felt a story was being told. Michael had agency. Tilly was a rising star. Lorca was riveting as a dark captain, maybe less so in the last couple of episodes.

But S2? Every ep feels like "How can we save the show this episode?" Twists seem arbitrary. Michael reacts, but I miss her agency. Tyler is a mope. Tilly, now a comic sidekick. Pike earned my interest, but did we need to see his future we already knew?

I've been threatening to do it for ages, but I finally wrote a new Starship Critic.

This time it's about the Defiant class, the ship the Federation built to fight the Borg that got knocked out the one time it had to fight the Borg.
