    You will always find people hating anything new in these long established franchises: Star Trek, Star Wars, Dragon Ball, etc.

    In the case of Star Wars and Dragonball, everything past the original series is truly garbage though.
    Star Trek got better, then worse, then nothing. Discovery is good, even though I don't see a lot of discovery in this show.

    People that still hate on Dragonball Super were never Dragonball fans to begin with.

    All that jacked up, Kung-Fu Superman shit Funimation created ain't Dragonball.

    You can take radical directions so long as you balance it with a respect for the source material.

    Interesting theory why the Spore Drive gets abandoned



    Synopsis:
    The Spore Drive can affect reality itself, and because of the Discovery, Reality gets fundamentally changed enough to scare the shit out of the Federation.
    Thus they stop pursuing the Spore Drive

    Another great episode.

    Star Trek nerds slowly warming up to the show.

    Lorca almost seems ready to embark on a suicide mission, possibly for personal vengeance against the Klingon captain who fucked up his old ship. He's fucking unstable and I love it.

    Yup, convenient how he SUDDENLY follows orders while saving the Admiral could cost him his captaincy.

    I also read Discovery is renewed for a Season 2. WE DID IT BOYS!!!

    Lorca is one cold sumbitch, fucks the admiral then feeds her ass to the klingons before she can cry rape.

    I respect this.

    I haven't been the biggest fan of this show but even I enjoyed the last episode. Lorca is colder than Sub Zero on vacation in Antarctica.

    Damn. I am continuing to enjoy this show.

    It pays to learn how to ignore all the pseudo-political bullshit that is following it around.

    Yea tho after that F bomb I was half expecting the admiral yo be giving head with accompanying money shot. Also people getting rekt quite brutally too.

    Unlike Maxx the show has always felt star trek to me, same kinda wooden dialogue style and obviously the world crafting is spot on. Dudes getting gutted and swearing I ain't used too.

    So about the "holodeck" on the discovery

    There was supposed to be a similar tech on the TOS, but due to budget restrictions Roddenberry never saw it though
    And it was touched on on the Animated Trek series, The Episode Practical joker.

    On the topic of the The Animated Series

    Arex is the best trek alien ever and should appear on Discovery on some point.

    M'ress hasn't appeared in the live action TV shows, but her species the Caitians had, why not Arex.

    We need Arex or another Edosian on Discovery (preferably Arex)

    The "holodeck" on Discovery looks very primitive... the room appears to have solid surfaces already in place to interact with while everything else is a hologram.

    Surprisingly, Dragon Ball Super is better than any other Dragon Ball in existence...

    McFarlane is basically Patrick Stewarts pet Trekkie.

    McFarlane was on TNG and can't let go.

    Should've watched Discovery today at lunch. Mr. Robot was just filler bullshit this week.
    I dunno why I should watch Orville though. Looks like TNG with terrible humor. Guess I'll give it a chance one of these days.

    Do you think Seth MacFarlane is funny?
    If you think so, give it a shot; If not then skip it.

    Gotta admit wasnt a fan of this episode, I think Mudd is a trash character who will keep popping up like Jar Jar Binks, he should have been clipped. Also the relation of Michael and Tyler meh? Do we need this? Also to hell with time fuckery, nice nod to Groundhog Day but meh 2/10.

    Was alright, if it wasn't done 10 times over in previous Star Trek series.
    What they're doing with her relationship with token white male action star, is humanizing her because everyone hates her since the first 2 episodes.
    They're basically trying to make us like her.

    Would've probably been better if they started the series on the Discovery and then showed flashbacks or an episode showing what happened in her past.
    I dunno how everybody else is feeling, but I still dislike Burnham.

    I still think this is the hottest woman on the Discovery

    latest?cb=20171011074703&path-prefix=en
    Apparently the character's name in the show is Lieutenant Keyla Detmer.

    latest?cb=20170929181358&path-prefix=en
    Here she is in Episode one, apparently she had a bad injury that required cranial and eye implants.

    I couldn't agree more. They rushed establishing her as a mutineer and it doesn't jive with how they want us to see her character. Also Burnham personality doesn't seem consistent to me. She seems to make too many rash emotional decisions for someone that, they seem to want to portray as cold and logical.

    I hope the recurring characters who only been in the background so far starts to get a larger role
    Like that Cyborg/Android not even the producers of the show are sure what she is yet, the two helm officers and even the doctor that had maybe 2 lines of dialog all season
