Id like to know why there is a 2 part episode in a show that is one big story arc? like huh?
Well, they had an "old school" tricorder in this recent episode, I didn't get a good look at it, but maybe you guys will like it.No props of holograms?
The few small things they have had have been so boringly generic. There's nothing I want from it yet. That could change for season 2 hopefully.
Well, I wouldn't mind Riker's wood fired pizza oven! Or home in the woods away from people. Or a bottle of Rios' bourbon. I love booze.
On a different note, does anyone think that someone will try to use Cristobal to see into the future?
I don't know about the new Soong being Lore. I think they might be planning to put his consciousness into the "golem" body, making him a new android, though.Just watched the latest episode.
My head hurts and I am now just a little dumber for having subjected myself to this.
The unearned moments and ludicrous storytelling continues...
I have not seen so many scenes of people just sitting and talking, spouting endless exposition, since the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy.
Oh yeah, and the Newly Discovered Soong...that’s Lore.
Sort of like the 1st season Voyager episode "Projections" except this time it's just Picard waking up from a nightmare!You know it would be hilarious if they eschewed the current story and made the season finale a Barclay fluff episode. You would hear people's heads exploding.
If only!I really hope this is how they end this abomination of a show:
The synth homeworld is saved. The treacherous Sutra and her father Lore (disguised as the younger Soong) have been deactivated. The Zhat Vash has been thwarted.
Picard... who has been totally cured (don't ask how)... celebrates with Soji and her Synth kin as Raffi, Rios, Jurati, Seven and Elnor join in, their mood jubilant.
At a distance, two familiar figures witness the celebration.
RIKER: I think I'm ready to talk to Captain Picard. I should have done it a long time ago.
TROI: So, I guess we're through here.
RIKER: I guess we are. Computer, end programme.
“That is so dumb, it HAS to be true...let me tell you about a man called ‘Alex Kurtzman’.”I predict they will all go to the future cause "time travel is the plot fixer for lazy screenwriters" and Picard will take over the Discovery where he will take many naps in the command chair as everyone hugs and cries.
I'm not watching the show so I'm going to ask.The dialogue and sloppiness of how the characters act. It's just like watching a generic show. There's so little that makes it stand out from everything else.
And that CONSTANT drone of "tension" music in the background. I just can't stop hearing it when I'm watching it. Again, this generic every show tension music when it's JUST not needed.
I did like a few scenes. The brief battle above the planet. Even the giant flowers taking them down, though it's a dumb concept, it looked neat.
The ships crashed on the surface, and the colourful alien world landscape was nice. I love seeing people around crashed ships for some reason. I'm not being facetious.
Picard seemed to sound a little less aged than normal, but again, it's like he's there, but while he has respect and "love", he has little authority or even the ability to talk his way out of anything anymore. It's like the ONE thing he should be able to do because of his physical restrictions, but he doesn't get to. He has no presence when it's needed to drive things forward.
One thing that really bugged me and it should have I guess. It was the incredibly useless scene in sickbay when dr annoying needs to scan picard and makes a reference to having to use an "old school" tricorder. First off, I hated so many contemporary phrases like that, but they MAKE a point of drawing our attention to a prop that we SHOULD as fans recognise. That wasn't put there for non fans. SO as a fan, I'm expecting something recognizable.
But nope- another prop fail. Along with all the "gun" looking weapons handed out.
Are they even trying?
Sorry- I wasn't too clear. Too early when I posted.I'm not watching the show so I'm going to ask.
What did the "old school tricorder" look like? Was it the Mark X or the larger screen Nemesis style Tricorder?
Like everything else in this series, it sort of looked like a Tricorder and made a different sound?
Because whoever is the post production supervisor along with the sound editor they need to be told, you can't just download a stock sound effects clip from Trekcore and stick it over anything.
I mentioned this before after watching the 1st episode, they had the DS9 hailing frequency chimes on Soji's replicator when "dispensable plot contrivance boyfriend" is scrolling through the replicator menu.
Or when Picard taps his comm to call Rafi and the comm sound is just a bit off, in that it sounds like a blend between the standard TNG sound and the TOS comm.
The show is terrible in many ways.
The sound design mess was very distracting, when I was watching this show. It takes you out of the story (not that the story was coherent either) to then start questioning the production itself.I agree about the weird mashing of sounds from all over. The medical bay scanner uses TNG tricorder sounds for some reason. They put weird fan pandering into places they don't belong. It's literally like they have NO production people who care or like Star Trek. They just cherry pick things to mover their story along.
