This is the story of a little ship...
- Dec 17, 2001
I'm finally almost at home. Wife will be taking my daughter's hair down, just grabbed Taco Bell and about to start this train ride!I'm excited to watch this tonight I'm going to turn up my 7.4 surround sound system
Quoting myself because I think it's still the case. I'm at the very least allowing the little things prevent me from trying to enjoy it.Idk if I can be objective. Admittedly, I'm LOOKING for reasons to hate it.
I think I need a different mindset before I continue
Didn’t this guy hate season 1 and 2?
I just finished it, Ehh, it was OKAAAAAY. But we've been SERIOUSLY scarred and burned from the first two seasons. There's a lot of things I can nit pick about this first episode, but I'll just wait and see how the Prologue (Episode 1-6) plays out to see what all these other people have been raving about so much. I just want have to see it for myself.Quoting myself because I think it's still the case. I'm at the very least allowing the little things prevent me from trying to enjoy it.

One thing is the Titan just looks weird to me, not a fan of it on here for some reason. It was perfectly fine on Lower Decks, it just looks smushed together, and the CGI looks like not good on it for some reason.
Also, still not a fan of Rafi. So FAR, she's not as insufferable, andand would have helped to accept her for who she is, but her scenes still felt kinda cringe. And I must have missed who the hell he was talking to the whole time. Was it just the ship computer or some AI from some Starfleet Intellegence Agency. I was so confused.I was hoping her no longer being Starfleet would have ben ice
So as usual, they literally tried to copy/paste from game to TV. GOT IT!
The Titan is the way it is as a callback to the movie-era Constitution Refit.
The saucer profile is unmistakable, EVEN DOWN TO THE WINDOWS, and even down to the usage of "refit" language and it's class name. "Neo-constitution." It's a manipulation IMO. The CGI is probably weird because the source code from Star Trek Online is not super high resolution.
I just wish we could fast forward to where its supposed to be amazingly good. Because the first episode definitely wasn't it.Why is this show so fucking DARK?
Talk about depressing.
TNG shit was bright and everything this thing is like a haloween episode OOF.
Having said that I do think episode 1 was decent.
Season 3 > Season 2 > Season 1(So far)

"Computer, divert all power to the Warp Core!"
"You want to divert power back to the power source? Does not compute, please retry request."
Just one of many nitpicks, but @the_antsy_honda that Pump Action Shotgun Phaser Rifle was VERY stupid, AND when I re-watched the scene, I initially missed the part where the gun yells outloud for all to hear when you're out of "ammo".
Yeah, and that actor is easily in his 30s... no way the math makes sense.oh god i hope that's not picard's kid somehow. With the totally obvious foreshadowing in the opening scene about his legacy, I have a hard time believing it isn't. if so, why does he have a british accent? beverly doesn't
maybe he just seen't some shit I guessYeah, and that actor is easily in his 30s... no way the math makes sense.
For Rafi, from what I understand the writers room just didn't know what to do with her. I guess because of drastic writing direction shifts every season, a lot of the actors maybe contractually or for whatever reasons they kept, and others they totally got rid of. Other videos touched on it. Basically they rewrote new characters for several actors, and in the case of Rafi, who was a more well written and liked character, they kept her as is...but didn't know what to do with her. So she has a B-side story that seems like it will hook up again with the main plot at some point. Pretty clumsy IMO, her entire contribution to this episode was googling Red LadyThings on my mind:
1) the flute and, when he held it, the melody played in the background. I need to watch that TNG episode again - it was definitely in the top 5 TNG episodes
2) Rafi's storyline - is that happening in some alternate timeline? It's not related to any of the other story lines. Also, she's searching for the 'red lady' who will ruin everything... and here she is, completely dressed in red, acting insanely crazy. Isn't it obvious that she is the red lady? And why is she so bipolar?
3) I totally want the Lower Decks characters to walk by in the background. Maybe have Jack Quaid run by (with purple hair) in the background holding some sort of green bubbly liquid.
