From what I gather it looks like the title is "Sorry for the Last Episode" and the summary is :"Alien" on Hoth.

Indeed. I thought it was a lovely bottle episode and a good way of resolving a plot thread with the doctor.

no spoilers...

Amazing episode!

Great episode, broke so many Trek procedural expectations.

Loved the Farscape-style fully animatronic alien.

If that was your first thought, it says a lot more about you than it does about me.

I ain't gonna kink shame, tho.

I only watch for the Sam Kirk episodes.  Is he the 'Hudson'? They might be contrasting him to his brother.

Kidding.  Another solid episode but there's only one more? It just started!  I canna take these short seasons anymore captain!

Not thrilled with Spock's little arc in this one, but no show is perfect.  Are they doing this stuff because he's young? Nurse Chapel is growing on me.  Maybe the actress is improving.  I really enjoy how they fit in 'life aboard' scenes.  Pike and Spock (!) with an apron is fun stuff and makes the ship more lived in.

They hit the nail on the head with the format; episodic with other stories continuing.  "Leave my daughter alone!"  Nice callback.

I'm really going to miss it after next week.

Yup.  It was a 'happy' way to resolve that particular plot.

Unlike this one :(  I liked him.

And chalk up two 'red' shirts.  Think that was the first time for th is show.

"Hammer would make a good counselor" is not something I saw coming.

You just have to plead with him a bit to make sure he doesn't hurt them.

I wonder what time spent in counseling with him might be called...

Season 2 is already in production. Likely they'll premiere it after ST:Picard wraps up next year, in the same method they've been doing (likely gonna see Prodigy next, then Lower Decks, then Discovery, then Picard, then SNW).

I kinda called it with sarcasm about Lt. Dead Meat (Duke) and Cadet Blue Shirt Cutie at the beginning. Much better promotion sequence than that stupid and budget-killing Holodeck thing they had in ST:Generations.

I really liked this episode. Planet Hoth with baby Xenomorphs with Predator vision and a Ripley/Newt expy? Yeh that's good stuff. I liked seeing La'an get a little revenge vs. the Gorn. I really hope they didn't just write her out of the show.

I especially liked Spock willingly give up a little emotional control to be successful in the situation, but it wasn't hand-waved away or reset-buttoned. This is still a younger Spock than we're used to seeing. Also, how Mustachioed-Kirk called him a "pointy eared computer" reminded me of "The Galileo Seven".

Chapel is fast becoming one of my favorite characters. No offense to Majel Barrett given; Jess Bush is doing an picture-perfect job with the character. She's warm, funny, and disarming. Plus she's a hell of a nurse.

It was also very sad to see Hemmer go, I was starting to like the guy.

They are filming season 2 right now, so hopefully same time next year.

At least we will have Lower Decks to tide us over in the fall.

Guess season 2 is gonna have Craiggy Ferg as the new alchoholic.

Yeah he kinda Tommen'ed out, but different circumstances. His passing felt like it fit with what we knew of the character.

No one should ever be sorry for an appearance of Princess Thalia and her dog.   And if anything happens to either of them I will phaser everyone in this room and then myself.

Just finished it, and I need a new box of Kleenex. As stated above, the whole Alien/Predator thing on Hoth was executed well. One thing nobody's mentioned yet, which may have been one of the funniest lines so far, was finding out Pike's command code.
 
2022-06-30 7:56:02 PM  
Currently on episode 6 and I find it to be better than Picard was(hoping season 3 delivers) but does anyone else have issues with Paramount constantly buffering? My other streaming services have no issues.

For my money, the funniest line (and great callback to TOS) was M'Benga's "He's dead, Chris."

I chuckled at that.

Daaaaamn, that was good.  Sucks to see the engineer go, though.  I really liked him.  That whole last act felt like a season finale, but I guess we got one more still.

Good to see that CGI Reptile from the old Mortal Kombat movie is still getting work.  Good for him!

You didn't change that yet?

Got a chuckle from me too.

They should bring in Christopher Doohan as Mr. Scott, since they need a new engineer.

He was great in Star Trek Continues.

He's 63 though. Not much "new" about him.

Yep. Makes Champion's League games unwatchable. On the other hand, my Spanish is definitely improving.

I'm also having problems with the imprecision of the commercial breaks. Every lead-in to a commercial break ends up cutting off about 10 seconds early, which is kind of a problem since Star Trek does its level best to end each segment with momentum.
