Voyager was mediocre at best


strange new worlds is good but with many flaws

People forget how bad the UPN era of Trek was. Voyager was done on the cheap, repurposing rejected TNG scripts and repurposing VFX shots (like the Dyson Sphere) to quickly launch a Star Trek on their flagship network. Then Enterprise got even worse to the point where the UPN brass was trying to force them to include a band on the show every week to promote some recent album.

Certainly better than most of NuTrek, but its still fucking awful compared to TOS, TNG, Voyager, DS9, or Enterprise.

Truth.

I watched Voyager a couple of months ago and it still holds up, especially the last few seasons. The Holo-Doctor, 7of9 and Barkley were just such engaging characters with well written character arcs.

Honestly don't give a crap if it's cheap, so long as it is good.
Shows like Red Dwarf and Dr. Who were produced on a shoestring budget too, they are still great shows.

So to you a show can only be good if it has a high budget? Even if it is written by a retarded inbred monkey? Even if it is poorly acted? Its all forgiven as long as it has explosions and a high budget?

Spock didn’t know in Balance of Terror, which is what this episode is an alternate-timeline version of.
I thought spok (Nimoy) had a line about it in the JJ Abrams movie. It doesn’t matter because those are a different timeline. I just thought Vulcans and romulans knew each other.

I do love early track aliens. Pointy ears your an alien. A Klingon has a gotee.

Man I'm liking this show. Finally a good way of ending a season into a conclusion and also into a cliffhanger. Satisfying. I wonder how its doing viewer vice compared to other Treks?

Seeing Pike in the movie uniform (although slightly updated) was awesome.

Yea. I like how the old visuals/costumes are fitted into this new version of Trek. Looks old but at the same time futuristic. The whole cast seem to work well together.
