    Not surprising, as Rick and Morty head writer Mike McMahan spearheads the project: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2020/...k-lower-decks/

    I...I dont think I'm going to like it. And isnt there another very, very similar animated space series out there already? Same style, humor etc? I think its on Netflix?

    And if they want to make a funny StarTrek just keep on with The Orville, it was the best attempt yet (as we all agree on already, right guys. Right. )

    I might have genuinely laughed once or twice at The Orville, but humor aside it's clearly the best new Trek we've gotten on TV since Voyager.

    I'm happy to hold off real judgement until the series is out. But the Rick & Morty connection worries me in as much as that kind of nihilism would be entirely out of place in a Star Trek production.

    It gave me strong Final Space vibes. And I enjoyed Final Space, but in the Trek universe it feels very wrong.

    That sounds like a great idea, might give it a listen.
    I listened to a few episodes. It's pretty good.

    McNeill doesn't come across as particularly nerdy, but both of the actors have a good enough grasp of the Trek lore/legacy and how Voyager fits within it. About 1/3 to 1/2 of the podcast is about the actual content of the episode. The rest is mainly background detail about filming the show, acting / TV production in general, and behind the scenes stories involving the rest of the cast.

    I mean, that's why Picard was so miserable right? It was straight nihilism all the way through and it sucked. And as critical as one can be about R&M it does actually do a good job of exploring far-out scifi concepts, so maybe that element will be a good fit.

    Also, really liking the Harry / Tom podcast too. Good shout, Bolt

    Yes! Thats the one I was thinking about! I did the 3-eps-before judgement and it did pass but not very high above my bar. Have not finished, maybe sitting at E5 or something.

    Mildly amusing. Watchable. Interesting cameos.

    I mostly liked it.

    It's like a B tier Rick and Morty. More of the jokes miss though.

    based on one or two of his videos i've watched in the past (which was plenty tyvm), i'm guessing it's yet another load of pissy pearl-clutching about how sjw's are ruining stuff.

    Star trek has lost its soul in and the cartoon looks abysmal
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    It was an afternoon tv show with an interesting premise and not terrible writing.

    There's a chance that may be as good as it gets.
