Hahaha! Yes, those scenes were usually tedious. :(

BTW, anyone watching the extra videos like The Ready Room? You can see them at https://www.cbs.com/shows/star-trek-discovery/, https://www.facebook.com/pg/StarTrek/vi ... e_internal or https://www.facebook.com/pg/StarTrekCBS ... e_internal. I only watched the first one for the season and I frankly found it a lot worse than After Trek, which I enjoyed and they cancelled. I believe this stuff is the "replacement".

BTW, I watched this awhile ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBgW0YNHSfw.

Published on Sep 25, 2017
I had a chance to meet Klingon language creator Marc Okrand to talk about Star Trek: Discovery, the new show that included lots of Klingon dialogue.

See and hear the "Master of Klingon" himself pronounce some of the newest words heard in Star Trek: Discovery.

The use of recently discovered words shows how up to date the creators of Star Trek have been working to get the Klingon correct.
I stumbled across the Klingon teacher "speaking" Klingon quickly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seZZaWT43lA.

Ok. Season 2 is over. There was a lot of action in the finale but numerous plot holes (not surprising). There were definitely some great fight scenes in the finale and a few eps prior to it.

There was an amazing amount of space battle scenes in the finale esp. for a Trek show.

At least they finally explained why we hadn't heard of Disco, spore drive, Spock's foster sister, etc. in Trek movies/shows that preceded Disco.

I watched the whole two seasons, and will comment in detail later. Overall, I wasn't terribly impressed. (I dumped The Expanse after slightly more than one ep. I'll explain that, too.) I canceled the CBS AA subscription this morning, and will be getting HBO through Prime tonight, to watch the last half season of GOT.

Bummer! :(

I loved that we got to see the baffle plate rupturing incident in Disco that we heard about it https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Th ... _(episode). And, we got further confirmation when Pike sees himself in that wheelchair.

I am looking forward to season 3 of Disco and The Expanse season 4. You should've stuck around for the latter thru at least S1:E4 "CQB", which was really good. S3:E5 "Triple Point" was also really good. I'm sure there were others.

If it's worth any consolation, I plan to turn back on Amazon Prime for a month or two for The Expanse S4 and the next season of Man in the High Castle.

Did CBS AA try to give you an extra month for free when you canceled?

They tried to give me two months at 50% off, so essentially the same discount.

I'll talk abut (Re)Discovery later, as I haven't eaten supper yet. I stopped watching the expanse in part, ironically, because the casting director(s) seemed to love pale, short white men with beards. So instead I watched STD, which seems to have a largely werewolf cast...

It starts very slow. I really suggest watching first 3 episodes before making a decision on it -- it really picks up the pace after that.

That's really sad, because that description definitely doesn't represent the cast of The Expanse. Seasons 2 and 3 are full of strong female leads. You are definitely doing yourself (and the show) a disfavor.

(I just finished the 8th novel, Tiamat's Wrath, and OMG, the overall story lives up to the term "the expanse" over and over again when you no longer think possible)

We are going to be keeping Prime for a while, for HBO and GOT, so I do plan to try the Expanse again. Something else that turned me off: little ships with 25' ceilings. If they were going to use sound stages, it would have been easy enough to build some damned lower ceilings!

I don't think the shuttle from the Canterburywas that little.
