Season Three will be a little rough to start, though there are a couple of decent pieces early on, but it picks up in the last five or six episodes, there's some good Trek stuff there. Even if one is a lame copout from what should have been a major plotline on the series.

Season Four is kinda similarly setup, including I think the first Bryan Fuller written episode, but "Year of Hell" is absolutely peak Voyager and obviously what the show should have been. (It also had been pitched as an entire season but was made into a two-parter.) Then they have a decent little run again that's up and down on the Hirogen, before again having a pretty good last five or six episodes including another one of the great ones. Season Five is all over the place really; Season Six has some of the worst but also some of the better episodes in that second tier; Season Seven is kinda meh, but there's a few I like, "Workforce" is probably really the most interesting of their two-parters after "Year of Hell" aside from maybe "Equinox" even if it kinda dances around some details you wonder about.

Voyager doesn't really ever get truly better to move it above any of the other series, but like I said it gets a little better and then blander and evens out so it's never as bad as season two. Especially once you accept the Janeway madness.

Plus arguably even if someone was skipping through the episodes, they'd have to watch the Borg stuff just to see how hilariously the Borg are turned into patsy's who are easily fooled and conquered by Janeway constantly, after their devastating "Q-Who?" introduction, "Best of Both Worlds" triumph and First Contact brutal savagery. Even Hugh and Lore couldn't make them as lame as Voyager does after "Scorpion" and Seven.

And then there's Species 8472... :neogaf

People are saying that maybe I’m sexist for hating Janeway and have some internal misogyny I didn’t know about because apparently a lot of captains do the same things Janeway does. I don’t know about it but maybe they’re right. But when I watch TNG i agree pretty much always with Picard’s methods. Is Picard my ideal captain or something because he was my first or what? Idk.

Oh jeez, it's not because she's a woman, it's because of the writing. Yeah, all the captains make decisions based on their own ethics and violate Starfleet rules/Prime Directive/etc., but Janeway does things far beyond any captain, and does them when she doesn't have to while never truly considering the ramifications of her actions, but none of it has do with her being a woman.

Sisko and Archer both cross the line (during wartime or equivalent arguably), but they're almost always shown as ultimately not being okay that they did it, and the crew doesn't blindly follow them. Even Ransom is shown as unsure about his choices. Janeway never reconsiders hers, on anything she does.

And part of that is because the show simply never allows it, instead they warp off to next week. So sure, it's technically not Janeway's fault, but nobody is talking about her and the other captains without making the qualifier of "if this were real and these people were making their own choices instead of following a script" because they know it's not. (Yet.)

Quote
Crazy Rich Asians star Michelle Yeoh is in talks to reprise her Star Trek Discovery role of Captain Emperor Georgiou for a stand-alone CBS All Access series, I’ve learned.

...

Still in the early planning stages, the spinoff looks likely to focus on a continuation of her Discovery Season 2 adventures in Starfleet’s Section 31 division.
Quote
the series is one of several ideas being pursued by Discovery EP Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout and David Stapf’s CBS TV Studios for the multi-project, multi-year Trekverse expansion, sources say. “My goal is that there should be a Star Trek something on all the time on All Access,” Stapf told Deadline in August.

Well I haven't watched the classic TOS..they were always too cheesy for my taste. Like I thought TNG S1 was kinda rough, how am I gonna watch something from 1960's something?

The movies might be worth it though, I havent seen the old TOS movies and I have heard decent things about them.

TNG s1 is not on the same footing as TOS. TNG s1 feels dated. TOS doesn’t. You are only making the assumption that you wouldn’t like TOS but you haven’t actually seen it. Watch The Menagerie or The Man Trap and see how you like it so you can have an informed opinion. :)

But I’m talking about the films. TOS films > TNG.

Star Trek VI is the best Trek movie imo.

TOS is pretty cornball as a whole but the famous/standout episodes are a step above anything else of the time

6 and 2 are such amazing movies. i also love first contact but it's not on that level

TOS also has some great character dynamics and if you can enjoy The Twilight Zone I see zero reason you shouldn’t be able to enjoy TOS. Same shit except in space.

II, IV, and VI are :hyper

I used to be a TNG hardliner but I've come to appreciate TOS a lot over the years, mostly thanks to my dad since it's what he grew up with...

We both agree s3 is pretty doodoo tho. I haven't seen TAS yet but he's a big fan, considering he's not much for cartoons either.

Speaking with THR, Alex Kurtzman confirmed that the series will actually be set after the events of the 2009 Star Trek film (in the Prime Timeline, of course, rather than the Kelvin alt-reality), which revealed that the Romulan Empire had been torn apart by the destruction of Romulus, consumed by a star going supernova.

According to Kurtzman, the event will have a huge impact on Picard’s life and state of mind:

Picard’s life was radically altered by the dissolution of the Romulan Empire.

A prequel comic to the 2009 movie confirmed Picard was currently ambassador to Vulcan at the time and had long been a part of attempts to unify the Vulcan and Romulan peoples alongside Spock


Despite Kurtzman's name being a perpetual boner-killer related to anything Trek, this is actually the first bit of Star Trek news in 10 years to make me a tiny, tiny bit excited.

The Prime timeline is moving forward!

TAS is fun, I grew up watching it on Nickelodeon. It was able to do a lot of things they'd never be able to afford on a live action budget back then.
