I don't mean this negatively about any of the shows mentioned, but just realised that Discovery's design choices make a huge amount of sense when you view it as a sequel to Enterprise, and not as a prequel to TOS.

@mike I need to go back and watch Enterprise again. Not sure I've actually seen all of them. 😱

@Andrea it's not a bad series, but it's kinda frustrating to watch as it got shut down just as it was finding its feet.

@mike I think I watched the first 2 seasons shortly after release thanks to a kind guy at work who burned them for me.

Was surprised to see there were more seasons when I was perusing viewing options the other night.

@Andrea I watched season 1 when it came out and never mustered the enthusiasm for the rest until about 15 years later.

@mike I petered out somewhere in season 2.

I don't feel so bad now...

@mike @Andrea
I agree. #STEnterprise gets a lot of flack, but especially its last season was getting quite enjoyable.
The temporal cold war itself didn't quite do it for me, and the Xindi arc perhaps was a tad too long, though I do appreciate them trying out arcs longer than a few episodes again; it's imho part of what made DS9 great.
Unfortunately they didn't quite evolve their characters as well as DS9 did.
But yeah, near the end it was finding its own path, and then got cut short. :(

@mike @Andrea
Also, I think that trying to introduce all those 'firsts' such as transporters, alien holodecks, Universal Translators, even the #Borg (although unnamed) and shoehorning all the characters into #StarTrek history, prob did #STEnterprise more harm than good.

@FiXato @mike I have opinions about

I finished it solely because I'm a completist.

@Andrea The world would be a boring place if we all shared the same opinions. ;)
I for one still have to finish #TOS because I'm a completionist too. I'm hoping it gets less grating after the first season...
I don't mind camp, but combined with the dated graphics, it just is harder to watch than I imagined...

@FiXato Ha, when I watched it wasn't dated graphics. πŸ˜‰

@mike entirely worth it for that one SFX shot of the Xindi Aquatics ship exploding in space.
