The actual narrative is so short here, I wish for a better B-plot. I feel we learn nothing, the crew learns nothing, and nothing actually happens. It’s just a bunch of filmmakers asking if they’ve blown our minds yet.
We’ve had worse stories, but nothing that’s really felt so amateurish.
Speaking of amateurs, on September 10th Derek and I will be streaming as we watch six episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, “The Dauphin,” “Contagion,” “The Royale,” “Time Squared,” “The Icarus Factor,” and “Pen Pals.” I tried to get the biggest streak of bad episodes possible. Stream will start at 9:00 AM central time and will feature stills from the episode with audio from Derek and myself. We’ll be at: https://www.twitch.tv/vanvelding
