I have watched the first four episodes now. I'm still impressed with the production values. But as others have said, this show is boldly going were every Science Fiction series has gone before. This is comforting to many, but It may not hold my interest for an entire season. I am holding out for a script written by someone other than Seth. I've got a feeling that the show could break out with some fresh execution of the old tropes if given a chance. I like the actors and the characters they play. Penny Johnson is very good in maintaining dignity when all around her are acting like fools. I still am bothered by the apparent total lack of protocol when dealing with an emergency or new culture. Too many bad decisions are made to advance the plots. That's what needs to change in the writing.
