Meh. I’ll watch it, because it’s been entertaining enough, but I am in no way hype given the mediocrity of the first two seasons.

I enjoyed seasons 1 and 2 even if both felt like the original script was perhaps a few episodes longer and they rushed the endings somewhat.

Well....the first season was pretty good except for the last episode
The Second season started ok and then was total gak for most of the rest with a nice touch at the end.

Third Season - well it could be ok......and its still got Seven but on the major down side that stupid Raffy woman is still being dragged along.

Mrs. GG and I recently started watching Lower Decks. Despite not really being big into the comedy aspect we are enjoying it more than we expected. Being more of a Trekkie than Mrs. GG I seem to be getting more of the “inside gags” but we both like the more positive aspects of the plotlines and overall atmosphere. I find it very surprising that I do not find it as jarring as I felt season 1 of Picard and Discovery were. Perhaps the overly comedic aspect helps with that. Almost as if it is a tv show being watched by people serving in Starfleet. Wow. Now that is meta.

Picard is more like DS9 in terms of going dark with the setting whilst Lower Decks is more like Original series with some of the internal maturity that came after.

Sadly I still can’t get into Lower Decks. I’ve pretty much only heard good things about it, but that art style is offensive unto Nuggan - if I’m allowed to call my eyes Nuggan. Given that’s also very likely offensive unto Nuggan, probably not.

And I have tried a few times, it just irritates me on an entirely irrational level.

I can't deny its a "Rick and Morty" art style that I don't like, but I can overlook it as I enjoy it for characters/story above artwork.

Just once. Just one time I'd like to see a trailer that doesn't play the BAAAWWWWM music as a building, or a planet, or a star is devoured/exploded/ripped apart.

Anything. Literally just show me a trailer where Bashir and Garak drink some tea and talk about the latest in Cardassian literature. Show me scenes of Troi counseling a young woman who just lost her partner on an away mission. Show me a scene of Riker cooking some kind of fething alien eggs for all his friends to try. Show me a scene of Seven of Nine learning how to sew from Neelix. Literally anything other than "OH NOES THE WHOLE GALAXY IS AT STAKE! LETS GO BLOW UP THE BAD MANS AND MAKE THE GALAXY SAFE AGAIN!!"

Lower Deck is definitely the best of the recent Trek shows.

Yeah, I will echo that. Although I admit I am trying to see it with something more of a “Simpsons” mental filter as I think of it as an “in setting sitcom” Starfleet crew watch in their leisure time. I really, really do not like “Rick and Morty.”

Yeah add me to the list of folk with no appreciation for Rick & Morty.

Giving Disco S4 a whirl. Mostly because it’s there.

Wasn't that the plan from the beginning? I thought I remembered Patrick Stewart saying as much before the series premiere. I think that was part of the deal they needed to make in order to have him come on (along with giving him mostly free reign to change things).

You're all over here obsessing over problematic Picard offerings while Bold Boilmer is out here living his best life.

From everything I have seen, yes.

Finished up Disco S4.

It’s….alright. I guess. The bridge crew get more to do, which is nice. But there’s too much reliance on Vulcans and Romulans etc.

One of my favourite tropes regarding TNG and DS9 was the way the different cultures worked together, sometimes providing an insight humans lacked. True it wasn’t always well done (Worf trope, Gosh Isn’t It Lucky Data Is An Android), but at least it was there.

A really good example was Nog. Not only did we see serious character growth (cheeky wee scamp becomes a competent and valued crew member), but his talents well used, even if it was just Acute Hearing.

I’m not even that sure what purpose Adira and Gray serve overall.

Watching Lower Decks does remind me of watching the Orville. Both of which it now seems I underestimated before I started watching them. I still need to see season 3 of both.

I will warn you season three of Orville has a Very distinct change in tone for much of it. Story is still there, but Way less jokes.

Orville 3 from what little I've seen of clips and trailers seems to be a full on "hey no one is actually doing proper classic Trek - we can do it - lets do it."

It's gone from its Original Series 1 and 2 to TNG Series 3 which means series 5 and 6 will peak with DS9
Then it will try its second take at Original series Voyager with 7 and 8

Episode 5 of Lower Decks Season 3 has the best ending of any episode ever simply because Boimler had an outburst XD

Episode question, but I can’t recall which one. It may even have been a YouTube fan film.

The scene I’m remembering is where having Abandoned Ship, we see the escape pods linking up, creating a sort of raft?

Yes. It's been on the calendar (this time around) since early 2021.
