I'm willing to give Discovery another try - I lost interest about 75% into season one. Where should I resume ?
You must watch full season because despite it is shit, it has some kind of plot. So in second season you will be "whaaaaat?". Who is this guy? What is that? How is he alive? He was dead??! Whaaaaat? Etc....Ignore Season 1 tbh. The ending was grim.
Start from Season 2, i'm a bit bored with Season 3 after a good start, it's reverted back to being a bit meh again.
I'm not sure...Season 2 made absolutely no sense anyway. Unresolved mysterious plot line to nowhere and an ending that was just mental.You must watch full season because despite it is shit, it has some kind of plot.

Seconded. Add to that the fact that ST used to be a dialectic and that the problems faced in the episodes tended to be issues that have plagued humanity in different ways throughout all of history, and as such had relevance outside of what’s going on in the episode.It is not the "wokeness" Star Trek as many have pointed out has always done political and social commentary. It is the mallet to the face levels of subtlety , and the jarringly self congratulatory preachiness that turns people off. Better writing and you can tell any story.
Picard was far worse than Discovery.
I stopped reading after "still good".just finished the third season of Discovery I'm glad to say it's still good. the ending was rushed a bit though and I can't help but feel the season is at least one episode shorther than it should be, something I couldn't say for first and second season. in a way, the plot in season 3 was almost too big for it's own sake, there was just too much at stake and too much of everything to just end it like that. I'm not going to complain much because I like Discovery and at this point I simply have to accept some things will never come back. those massive seasons consisting of 27 episodes are history, at least when it comes to Star Trek. for example, I would like to see how the other species managed after the Burn, but the show couldn't be less interested in that. it's not like there is some kind of rule that prevents the show going beyond 12 episodes. imagine DS9 or TNG being reduced to 12x45 minutes and all those details that made them so great left out, including those "plotless" episodes. it's just the way it is unfortunately.
but like I've said, I'm not going to complain much because at this point I'm glad there is a Star Trek series still going. Discovery isn't for everyone, but it's certainly good entertainment. maybe the fourth season will give answers to some of my questions, as they're staying in the same timeline. It's a bit surprising though, as it means the characters from first two seasons are gone forever. Ash was basically erased from the show, Spock as well, and I was wondering what happened to "original" Lorca. they weren't essential, but still...
let's hope they hurry up with Picard S2 and Strange New Worlds.
Yup noticed that last week. Awesome, going through season 1. Pickard was quite serious in the first few episodes. I seem to remember his character being quite humorous in the movies. Did that change, or has it just been so long that I forgot.been rewatching Enterprise as it's on Netflix
just noticed the actor who plays Data is in S03 and playing a villain character - he's really good
overall though I've enjoyed the series but it's dated horribly, it somehow feels older than The Next Generation - its like StarGate SG1 at times
I'm hoping they use some excuse or joke like Q is just appearing older to have a jibe at Picard. That at least seems like a reasonable plot device to explain the age.Why does Q look older if he is thousands of years old and immortal?
On a side note I have been watching TNG from the beginning on netflix since April. I am on season 6 now. Big drop in quality as it nears the end. 4 and 5 were the absolute peak
Really? Got a link, i'm curious now.I’ve been watching the odd Voyager episode here and there recently. It’s always been my favourite series.
It’s weird watching scenes with Janeway and Seven knowing how difficult Kate Mulgrew made Jeri Ryan’s life when she came into the show.
Anyone see the original pilot clips with the French-Canadian actress they originally had for Janeway? They made a good choice going with Mulgrew.
Ah interesting, must admit I was fairly young when Voyager was on and I imagine the character of Seven of Nine was directed at my age range. She was a great character, but feck me her costumes in the early seasons were, totally unnecessary looking at it now. I can see the angle Mulgrews coming from.
Can remember a few gags about Borg implants at the time.Ah interesting, must admit I was fairly young when Voyager was on and I imagine the character of Seven of Nine was directed at my age range.

Mulgrew felt a bit threatened imo, seeing as she was the female lead and didn’t like the idea of an attractive female character to be brought in to steal her thunder. Apparently she made Ryan’s life miserable at times.Really? Got a link, i'm curious now.
