It doesn't yet feel like Star Trek to me. The crew is very immature, sometimes annoying so, and they're facing a real villain who is out to get them. Between that and the main character reminding me a lot of Ezra Bridger from Rebels, this feels a lot like Star Wars. Much of the crew simply acts dumb much of the time. I guess that's comedy, but it's not Star Trek.
Still feels more Star Warsy then Trekkie to me but that’s not a complaint..
So anyone have thoughts on the ship having a “3-D printer” that can make a shuttle in about 5 minutes.
It was inevitable that Gwyn would side with the Protostar over her father at some point, but I was pleasantly surprised that it happened this quickly.Ah part II...the mid-season finale. Going in, I wasn't sure five episodes then a break was a good idea. In hindsight, I think this was a great place for the show to take some time off. Why? Put simply, we have the Protostar's crew finally formed. Up to this point, Gwyn was "the other", the one person on the Protostar who was not a conventional slave at the beginning of the show (she was a slave in other ways). She has fully reconciled the fact her father does not care about her by the end of this episode. Of course, she knew that previously, but this crystalized the idea in her mind.
The thing that gives me the most hope for Dal is his willingness to listen to the others and change his mind when they make good points.As for Dal this week, the mere fact he put his life on the line to save Gwyn shows he is maturing, little by little. As the "enemy," it would have been easy for him (and the crew) to walk away from her...but that's not what Starfleet does, it's not what good people do. So the crew rescues Gwyn and there really isn't any discussion about putting her back in the brig. She's on the bridge, they escape from the Diviner and we're on our way.
The CG characters are fine, but the planets and the space backdrops are at times jaw-droppingly beautiful.I am still captivated by the opening credits and the theme. It looks magnificent and I can't help but be enraptured by them every single week.
Unfortunately, one of the entertainment sites I frequent had a big screenshot of Dr. Crusher rendered in the CG style used by "Prodigy", so I knew that cameo was coming but not the full extent of the fan service. We already knew that the version of the Kobayashi Maru test used at Starfleet Academy got regular updated to reflect contemporary ships, and that the crew used in the simulation was customizable. It makes sense, then, that ships would have a version of the test that was fully customizable.Just finished this series return with "Kobayashi".
Nostalgia big time, interesting use of the holodeck and an excellent storyline.
Driving that point Dal learned in the test home is the fact that in her first day of unrestricted access, Gwynn has already accomplished more than Dal's entire tenure as "captain". We knew that Robert Beltran had recorded dialogue for the show, but we didn't know in what context he would appear.Some answers given and a larger mystery uncovered. Looking forward to where this is headed.
