Post-Discovery-complain-tweeting, watching “The Ready Room” episode where Wil Wheaton spoke w/Mary Wiseman and shared his emotional response to one of her scenes… Holy crap! 🥲 I felt it too, @wilw Kudos to everyone involved here for sharing this. Very human; very sincere ❤️
No Star Trek kills immersion & my suspension of disbelief like Discovery. I hated Voyager for this & other reasons, and all Star Trek is fantasy, but Discovery makes me scream. Every time someone on this show cites “science” is a fresh insult to the scientific method.

It has characters demonstrating supposition and an utter lack of critical thinking and calls it brilliance & science. It eschews simplicity for complexity and flashy nonsense. It’s so far beyond basic science naïveté as to be malignantly wrong with what it portrays as science.
1
I watched Voyager all the way through so that I’d be familiar with the whole series. I hated it thoroughly, which sucks for the fine actors and characters with potential. This show? I actively enjoy the characters, but I hate the plotting they’re puppeteered into executing.
1
I went from respecting Star Trek b/c of TNG & DS9, to hating it b/c of Voyager being a sausage of *bad* Trek tropes and unrelatable/unnatural characterization. Enterprise was a huge improvement, but got beaten down by its own viewers & finale. I love Picard & Lower Decks, BTW.

I don’t understand how one Trek show can demonstrate continuous competence, brilliance even, while another is a stew of WTF. It’s not the actors’ faults. It’s the decision-makers; scriptwriters, directors, executives. I struggle to critique it in tiny twitter bites. Frustrating.
1
And that last word above is the key: frustration. I WANT to like this series. I’ve enjoyed a lot in it. I’m open-minded… but I’m not willing to be the kind of open-minded that requires scooping out my own brain, throwing it on the floor, and stomping it into submission.
1
During a break from the show, I found myself recollecting characters statements across episodes (re: power sources & motivations) and I noticed more contradiction. Thinking about good shows rewards thought w/depth. Thinking about Discovery punishes w/shallowness & logic fails 😕
2
I just watched a scene where characters didn’t in any way react to very obvious, large floating objects in an alien structure they were searching for “anything of importance”. It’s not a “it’s in the CGI but not the script” problem because these objects appeared to be on set too.
1
Concurrently, on the ship, a character produced from the replicator: a tray, spoon, small mug, large mug, and glass. She picked up the large mug. After her conversation w/another character, the camera very deliberately pointed where all 4 objects had been, but there was nothing.
1
After that, I watched someone’s magical knife appear from nowhere (sound effect for their WTF conjuring BS, but no visual), then they played a sound effect again to imply she magicked it away again… but it was still visible held to the neck of the person she was interrogating.
Good fiction should reward its audience for thinking about what they’ve been given, not fall apart at the slightest inquiry. I don’t accept the excuse “it’s just a show”, especially when others do far better (even other Trek shows). Something is more broken here than usual.

Why does the USS Discovery have lens flare spotlights installed in bridge walls? They’re right above/below the flame-throwers on the wall columns. Also: Why does the USS Discovery have flame-throwers on the bridge? It’s bad enough working with sparkler spouts in the ceilings.

Amid these stories of layoffs happening everywhere, it's crazy -- seems like just last year we were all getting gaslit by corporate bullshit about how "no one wants to work anymore"

Of all the pissing & moaning about Star Trek Discovery, I can’t recall anyone mentioning the one thing that actually really bothers me: The ludicrous “technology”. It’s arbitrary plot-contrivance, physically nonsensical & impossible flash, and inconsistent application of magic 🤷🏽‍♂️
“…with such a privileged role comes responsibility. …to know when you are the right person to lead and also when you are not. I know what this job takes. …I no longer have enough in the tank to do it justice.” I can’t imagine an American “leader” doing this. That’s not good.

Honestly, I’m fine with anyone who mishandles classified information being appropriately investigated. This isn’t a partisan issue. It’s common sense.

Hi, I just wanted to put this here for all the fucking freak weirdos: EVEN IF SOMEONE IS NOT COMPLYING WITH A COP'S ORDERS, IT DOES NOT MEAN THEY DESERVE TO DIE.

The computer industry is an utter disaster, but everyone acts like this is fine. Nothing is reliable; many things don’t even work at all. Every now & then I find another person who’s aware of this, shouting into the void like myself. My recent find: cliffberg.medium.com/the-it-…
