    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard Season Two

    ^ To be sure, though, Altan Inigo Soong from the first season of Picard was actually the first Soong we’ve met to be quite likable and mostly ethically righteous, unlike Arik, Adam, etc. So there is definitely a bit of range there in the family’s morality across the centuries.

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard Season Two

    It makes sense that Yvette Picard refused treatment, because that’s the only way to justify why 24th Century technology hadn’t helped her. I'm reluctant to call her refusal negligent, because denial or resistance to getting help can itself be a symptom of mental illness. Also, we know from TNG...

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard - Season Three

    Although I can’t imagine we won’t be seeing Alison Pill’s Borg Queen again in at least some capacity next season, especially given where they left things at the very end of season two (with the Borg now standing watch over the mysterious anomaly for the Federation, and the Jurati-Queen’s winking...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    SNW's loving treatment of Uhura suddenly feels so much more special as of today.

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    Apparently Tawny Newsome just revealed that Mariner and Boimler are going to be shot live-action in the episode, so take that as you will. Also, Jonathan Frakes is directing the episode, and he's a pretty steady hand. Maybe Pike's Enterprise gets recreated aboard the Cerritos-holodeck in the...

    The Lord of the Rings (Amazon Prime TV Series)

    Yeah, there's definitely a trend in depictions of Sauron to take "fair" and run with "lank-haired, pale, blonde, dainty," etc. I think an Adam Driver or Lance Reddick-type would be better -- someone physically imposing while also being...I dunno..."soulfully" good-looking. I've seen a lot of...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    The 2018 Discovery novel Drastic Measures (which, to date, is the only piece of official storytelling to actually depict Prime Lorca) does show us an upstanding Starfleet captain -- albeit one who's more James T. Kirk-ish, and willing to bend the rules occasionally -- against the backdrop of the...

    Jason Isaacs confirms that he's been in talks with the Strange New Worlds showrunners to return as Prime Lorca: https://trekmovie.com/2022/07/17/jason-isaacs-has-talked-to-the-star-trek-strange-new-worlds-showrunner-about-returning-as-prime-lorca/

    The Lord of the Rings (Amazon Prime TV Series)

    I like that the actress playing young Galadriel is named Morfydd, because it looks like one of those randomly-generated names you get in a fantasy MMO when you can't get "Galadriel."

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    I wonder if they were influenced by The Making of Star Trek's assertion that Kirk's first command was a smaller "destroyer-equivalent" vessel. Though it was probably just done so it'd be easy to tell the two ships apart during the battle-scenes. And probably the only reason they did make the...
