You are correct. "Prequel" is (or was) a neologism created from "sequel" -- "comes/made after" -- and "pre-" before. So it's something that is made after but comes (chronologically) before. The Hobbit movies are prequels to the Lord of the Rings movies because the former were made after, but set before, the latter. The Hobbit novel is not, however, a prequel to the Lord of the Rings novels, because it was written before they were.Prequel as you use it is, IMHO, wrong. Predecessor would work, because one precedes the other.
For me, that saved the episode. Up to that point, it seemed too frantic and disjointed. Now, I recognize that that was reasonable given Burnham's situation, but it still didn't work for me. I did like the "this is your Burnham; this is your Burnham on drugs" moment, though.Loved it.
But I think my favorite moment was when Burnham commissioned the Federation officer. One of the most touching scenes I can recall in all of Star Trek.
What was it that Black Widow said to Loki in The Avengers?I agree. I thought the point was that all great societies can fall, and it requires good people to keep them together and/or build them back.
This isn't "Reddit" which makes your post uncalled for in our member friendly posting environment.Gee, what a useful and constructive post! I'm sure you are totally open to discussion (you know, the purpose of this forum)! It's certainly not like you stroll from thread to thread posting about how much you hate a show or how you bailed on a show.
Just in case you got lost, this is the Home Theater Forum: not reddit.
I'd love to hear your thoughts about the premiere episode of season three Alan.I liked the first episode of season two. We're exploring, and IMO that's what Star Trek is about. Also, I appreciated what was finally revealed about Spock. That makes me think of TMP, when V'ger called to him. I did like that part a lot. And the implicit promise the writers made that Burnham and Spock are on paths to connect.
The action set piece was motivated more believably than season one ever did, and I appreciated that, though the same frenetic style of action (rocks swarming, and so on) makes it hard to swallow that ANYONE could survive some of these sequences. But that's the state of the art, so I am going with it.
Overall, I am much more excited after tonight's episode about the prospect of season two. I'm not going to say it feels like Star Trek, but I think it feels more like Star Trek than season one, and maybe as much as it can for this show supposedly set in Prime. My wife loves ST but doesn't read the trades or fan sites, and when I told her this was the allegedly set in the Prime Universe, she laughed. "Silly boy," she said. Despite what the show runners claim, I enjoy the show more when I picture it in the Kelvin universe. It's the only way I can reconcile it since not enough of an attempt was made visually to make me believe otherwise. That said, I appreciated some of the touches in Spock's quarters.
Tilly is as lovable as ever. Glad for that. And glad Star Trek is back on my TV every week for a while. That is something I probably took for granted during the 90s but never will take for granted again.
Here's to gaining strength from our diversity as we relentlessly explore the unknown in season two.
From what I remember from that Ready Room interview-clip, I think he said that he’d been offered a role on a different show (which he then turned down on the basis that you mention), but then shortly afterwards the Discovery-role arrived, he talked it over with the producers, got the part, etc.I think there will be. In his Ready Room interview, Ajala said he originally turned the part down because the character description was too close to things he had already done. In response, the showrunners told him more about the character’s story and that persuaded him to sign on.
There are 13 episodes this season. Down from 14 in S2, down from 15 in S1. At this rate, they'll be down to 10 episodes by S6.There are only 10 shows in a season I think and they used one of them to have the main characters help a guy save a whale.
I feel like this has been done before.
That was my understanding as well.From what I remember from that Ready Room interview-clip, I think he said that he’d been offered a role on a different show (which he then turned down on the basis that you mention), but then shortly afterwards the Discovery-role arrived, he talked it over with the producers, got the part, etc.
liberated into feeling like very generic sci fi that borrows from so many sources with Andromeda being the most noticble
Her odd behavior began right after the crash. I have always hated the situations where the viewer can see obvious behavior but the other characters can’t.Speaking of Detmer: What's going on with her? I don't think we're supposed to believe that she was just concussed. Did Control download itself into her cybernetic implants?
