    I will say, as an avid Trekkie, Disco had a bit of a rough first season. The second season came together well. But the third season? Every episode is better than the last.

    Highly recommend watching it if you have the chance.

    I'm also a bit sad to see that I cannot find a Lower Decks thread. If you haven't watched that - it's like Rick and Morty meets Star Trek. Hilarious; best enjoyed after a few alcoholic beverages. Good for non-fans, beyond fantastic for trekkies.

    I’ve been a little bummed with season three. Definitely prefer last season to this season.

    The Simpsons in the Star Trek universe.

    I love this show period. Best Trek in a very long time. I think this season is great. Each season has brought something different which is why I think I like the show so much.

    Disagree. I think it would be a phenomenal show if it weren’t tied to Star Trek, but I still struggle to reconcile that these people are in the same universe as the TNG crew.

    I happen to think Picard is the far superior show.

    I can't stand Michael. Does she get paid by the tear? Other than that, it's decent Trek. I also prefer Picard to this.

    We have to agree to do disagree. I think Picard is great in its own right but two completely different shows.

    That's my point. You are right they are two completely different shows. One is Trek. The other is pretending to be.

    Nonsense. They are both Trek. Discovery is some of the best Trek has been in a very long time. The reboot so to speak in Season 3 is genius. They are not bogged down in a midfield of balancing events they were about to run into in canon, constraints within the story verse (i.e. Federation of Planets) and is a tad unconventional like DS9 was when it came out. Easily one of my favorites since DS9. I also can't wait for Star Trek Strange New Worlds as well but my guess is they are going to have some of the same problems if the show lasts more than 5 seasons. It's good time to be a Trek fan right now.

    Anyone else find it odd that an ensign was named as second in command of Discovery?
