Strange New Worlds Season 1 Episode 8 Analysis

Strange New Worlds Season 1 Episode 8 is the eighth instalment of an American scifi space opera television drama created by Akiva Goldsman, Alex Kurtzman, and Jenny Lumet for the streaming service Paramount+. A spin-off of the Discovery series, Strange New Worlds features the USS Enterprise captained by Christopher Pike and set a decade before the events in the original Star Trek TV series. Arguably, Discovery’s second season – which introduced Anson Mount’s version of Pike – has been the best so far, so it’s no surprise that this series is now a reality.

THE ORVILLE IS A BAD STAR TREK RIPOFFTHE ORVILLE IS A BAD STAR TREK RIPOFF

The Orville

Season 3 of The Orville has been streaming recently on Hulu with “New Horizons” as its sub-title, for some reason. Regular visitors to PoP will be aware that we found that most of the two seasons of The Orville were very pale imitations of Star Trek and had no justification for its existence. However, it appears that the first episode of season 3 had received critical praise and thus we thought it appropriate to share what we think of the return of The Orville.

Star Trek Discovery S04E13 Analysis

Star Trek Discovery S04E13 is the finale of the fourth season of the scifi space opera TV drama series streaming on Paramount+. The series had a mixed reception due to its perceived retconning of Star Trek canon, being set 10 years before the events in the original Star Trek TV series and by introducing Michael Burnham (as the sister of the iconic character, Mr. Spock). In season 3, the series transported the ship and its crew almost a century into the future, thereby (cleverly) avoiding any issue with Star Trek canon once and for all.
