..I was a bit mixed about season 1, but enjoyed it enough that I'll probably watch this.

..... I do miss having a "regular" ongoing Trek series.

The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.

Oh yes. Lots to be excited about there, looks like the final tease of S1 will play a big part rather than just being a neat cameo. Though I still feel Saru more than earned the captaincy proper last time round, so hopefully Pike doesn't stick around for too long!

Interesting take.

Although I wonder how long they can keep up the "Spock is just over there, just off screen, and we'll keep talking about him but never show him!".

Supergirl tried that in its first season and it didn't work.

Have they definitely written out the Doctor and subsequently his story line with the lead engineer guy? I thought they had some good chemistry together.

Pretty much. I watched the first 2 episodes (the ones that had nothing to do with the rest of the show... good use of my time there). Then I think I got up to halfway though episode 4, fell asleep and just never found the time or inclination to go back and try to pick it up. My office coworker watched it all and updated me on some of the developments and nothing sounded interesting or exciting enough to bother with. Meanwhile I was looking forward each week to new episodes of the Orville.

“The good are quick to help people in need. They do this without hesitation or requiring proof the need is genuine. But before they condemn the accused or bring harm to others, however justified it may seem, they hesitate. They demand proof.”
“The wicked will believe they are fighting for good. But when others are in need they’ll be reluctant to help, withholding compassion until they see proof of that need. And yet Evil is quick to condemn, vilify and attack. For Evil, proof isn’t needed to bring harm, only hatred and a belief in the cause.”

Jeri Ryan says hi.....

Same as the "decomantation" porcess smearing gloop over a half naked Jolene Blaylock.

In fact given that a good portion of Discovery was spent in the Mirror Universe we missed out on alot of sexy outfits!

Still not seen Orvile although friends say its pretty good if occassionaly the jokes fall flat - problem I have is that I cant stand Seth Mcfarlane's cartoon shows.

Discovery was often very good fun - the only thing i felt it could have done better was not have made a bizare redesign f the Klingons.

Yeah, Jeri Ryan did nothing for me.
Nor did captain monotone.

Seth McFarlane's cartoons don't grab me, but the writing on the orville is better (even if many of the jokes fall just as flat). There's some TNG level political commentary in there as well.

Pffffffffffffffffffffft. Roxann Dawson was the itch scratcher if anyone was, as far as ogling female beauty. Actually, her storylines were some of the best stuff on there. Her AND Tom Paris.

As far as theme? It felt more that Voyager was hell bent on changing Janeway's religion every damn episode. Then it changed to revolve around Seven of Nine's rack, and I'm not sure that was an improvement.

My secret fortress at the base of the volcano!

I love how they can't admit they gakked the bed with the terrible, terrible Klingon redesign. At least the folks at Doctor Who had the good sense to realize nobody except Moffat liked the Skittles Daleks, so they quietly pushed them further and further into the background. STD keeps pushing their Klingon redesigns as "totally not garbage, guys".

There was a thing when JJ Abrams left the trek franchise he rebooted to do Star Wars, turned out he had issues Paramount not cancelling the existing lines of licensed action figures etc etc, which would've cut into the sales of the new characters figures, persumably.

IIRC that was one of the reasons C3po had a red arm in episode 7 -- counted as a redesign so Abrams et al get .XX% of monies from things featuring said new design.
