New animated comedy series, focusing on the crew who have the more mundane jobs on starships

Not the healthiest like to dislike ratio on that video (2:1)

I have a feeling that this will be the sort of thing that doesn't really WORK in a quick trailer (or maybe that's just wishful thinking as I didn't laugh once), but I'll probably give it a couple of episodes to see what it's like.

It surely can’t be any worse than Disco.

And if it is, it can always be decanonised like the original animated series.

I enjoyed it! I was expecting it to ape Rick and Morty, but it feels more like Futurama with a heavy dose of TNG-era nostalgia. The first episode does a nice job of introducing the characters while also having a formulaic Trek plot happening in the background (complete with a classic extremely quick and convenient resolution to the threat). It wasn't laugh a minute, but there were some chuckles and I found it far more charming than I expected to - I'll definitely be watching next week's episode.

I should've been posting in here more, but I just watched the finale and I LOVE THIS SHOW, the characters really grew on me very quickly and it's just full of fun little moments. Last week's episode where they did a 'movie' version of the show on the holodeck (complete with a Shakespeare-quoting villain and ridiculous lens flares everywhere) was particularly great :D I'm still amazed at no broadcaster or streaming service picking it up in the UK!

Yes shame it's not been shown in the UK. Did I read it had been cancelled or am I making that up? I'm not sure the reviews were exactly stunning, other than @COB's?

It's definitely getting a second season :disco: I won't say anything else due to spoilers, but a particular character who shows up in the finale will also appear again apparently :o

Coming to Prime Video in Europe Jan 22nd! It's very good, and definitely grew in popularity over the course of the season. Near unanimous praise by the finale, from what I saw.

Oh yay! Thanks for the intel.

I've been watching Final Space on Netflix instead and it's very good!

Just finished watching the season! It was good, some episodes better than others but the last two were really strong, I think because they actually became quite Trek-y.

I wonder if Mariner and Boimler will stay split away from each other in season 2 and whether Riker and Troi will continue to feature (they sure get around the franchise, don't they?). I'm assuming there will be a demotion in Boimler's future :D

Apparently
Boimler will still be on the Titan at the start of season two, Riker is confirmed to appear but Troi isn't :(

I mean that's what they've said in terms of voice actors, it's possible the character could appear but not say anything :o
