Star Trek Masturbatathon

Recommended Posts

First episode of Star Trek Prodigy has been put onto Youtube for free. I actually thought it was better than I was expecting so that's good. Getting a Star Wars vibe from it but I'm hoping that falls away a bit once they get into more stuff with the ship and Janeway.

Episodes 3/4 (the first was 2 episodes) were also great, and loses a lot of the "Star Wars" vibe. I think a lot of it is due to the pilot having lots of non-humanoid species speaking theory own language, in a grimy mine setting. 

 

One thing that does sound concerning is that after the next episode, there will be a break until January, when there will be five more episodes. Then the remaining 10 episodes of season 1 will air at an even later date. A 20-episode season 2 has also been confirmed. 

One interesting thing about the latest episode is that it potentially had a lot of backstory for a certain species seen in Voyager, although it's just speculation. It does make a lot of sense, though.

Enjoyed the first two episodes well enough, intriguing storyline, though the main character and the rock girl are seriously annoying (what were they thinking with the voice acting choice for the latter). Nice visuals but the animation and overall production feels a bit cheap, but maybe I'm just used to Lucasfilm animation.

Pretty bad for them to announce this so close to the air date. I guess that means that instead of signing up for Netflix I'll instead have to wait (or just watch it starting this week anyway).

I already had plans to cancel my Netflix subscription, after years of being subscribed, ever since it was launched here in The Netherlands. For farious reasons. But I wanted to wait until after The Witcher, Discovery, and Stranger Things maybe.

Discovery so far has largely disappointed, but I was still willing to watch it. But not when it means if I have to subscribe to another (even worse) streaming service, when I want to cancel the one I already have. I'm not signing up for Paramount+, and I'll cancel Netflix end of the year.
