In which we meet a new expy, User Interface Design is not intuitive across humanoid species, and the Enterprise sends a box of tribbles to the Klingons.
In which Picard handles a Kirk situation, everyone loves a girl fight, and there’s a surprising lack of urgency.
In which I promise you’re still watching Star Trek, bourbon brings out my distractability, and some of the darkness in the Star Trek universe is laid bare and glossed over.
In which I get to start revisiting transhumanism as a theme, I pick a new crewmember to nitpick, and I get to say ‘space jellyfish sex’ in context.
In which a grand tradition is upheld, the miniskirts are explained, and a mystery reveals itself.
In which plants are smarter than people, I have no idea what Walter Koenig was on at the time of writing this, and a thing we’ve already seen is foreshadowed. Hindshadowed?
In which Kirk falls for another pretty face, prejudices are cast aside, and we end with some very satisfying action sequences.
In which I spend a lot of time talking about obvious parallels, I ruin the mystery, and I spend a lot of time talking about obvious parallels.
In which I propose a game, Space Warren Buffet is rescued, and I do drunken metaphysics.
In which I am compelled by my sense of personal honor and loyalty to finish what I started… ladies.
