I'm trying to think of this as a standalone. It's better that way. Because there's no possible way to reconcile anything with the canon unless it's something ridiculous like another Mirror universe or something. 

They shouldn't have holodecks for another like 150 years. 

Well I'd name 100 more but you get the point...

 

I'll think of this show as "Star Trax".

Look obviously I am fond of Discovery, however I do get really frustrated at canon inconsistencies as well. I'm gonna give them the chance to figure themselves out and reconcile the show to the franchise. Such as none of the Klingon stuff looking very Klingon (i'm looking at you D-7 that isnt a D-7). However besides visuals I haven't really noticed any major or significant canon discrepancies short of say the holographic communications.

Oddly enough the animated series is apparently canon again, for the most part, which is why Discovery has a tiny holodeck. In TAS the original Enterprise had a holodeck called the recreation room and Gene Roddenberry envisioned a holodeck in TOS but never had the budget to do it until TNG.

I haven't watched either Discovery or The Oroville; but this YouTube review/rant has me actually interested in the Oroville. Frankly this is the type of social commentary that has long been needed in modern society, and I gotta give props to the show for doing it. It helps to define there is a difference between equality and rights; and pedantic social justice nonsense. Social Justice Dystopia, I love that definition:

What parts of Star Trek might our Lego Movie heroes like? Here are my thoughts, based on TLM1:

Emmet: The Next Generation. The one where everyone follows the rules and works as a team of buddies. Also, their ship is built like a perfect skyscraper.

Wildstyle/Lucy: Deep Space 9. The first properly dark and brooding one, and she identifies with Major Kira.

Metalbeard: Again, Deep Space 9. He identifies with the shape shifter, and also the hunk of junk that is the station!

Lord Business: Also a niner, but he thinks the Ferengi are the heroes!

Batman: Used to be a niner, but now its Discovery, and only Discovery. Only Discovery has black alert.

Bad Cop: The original series, particularly the moments when Spock and McCoy give Kirk conflicting advice; Bad Cop usually sides with Spock, Good Cop nearly always sides with McCoy.

Vitruvius: Enterprise. He likes to see things built from the ground up. No one ever broke it to him that Enterprise came later than most of the shows.

Benny: Voyager, despite its 1995 release date. It has the best spaceships, and also the best pilot, who has achieved infinite velocity! He also likes The Motion Picture (1979), as it reminds him of his era.

Unikitty: The Orville.

Season 2 is quite good so far. 4.5/5 stars.

I think they're going TOO heavy on the technobabble. I understand they're trying to be more classic Star Trek and bring in elements that feel more Star Trek. But it's kind of a bit much atm. I'm not sick of it yet but this can get old fast I think. It's like by the time Voyager came out it used so much technobabble it was ridiculous and everyone was sick of it. It's just been so long since Voyager that people forgot! I'm hoping they reel some of it in. Not all of it though. 

Also I'm kind of sick of the plots of EVERYTHING WILL BE DESTROYED/THREATEN THE WHOLE GALAXY. You can have well written stories that don't affect the whole universe. So far it seems to be going towards a galaxy threat again. Also the Spore Drive is still kind of lame. In the latest episode they kind of explain WHY they probably won't use it anymore. However, in season 1 we found out it's absurdly easy to accidentally destroy that whole spore universe place, and if you do EVERYTHING dies apparently. So nobody else in the whole universe discovered this technology and abused it? I don't buy it.

Easier to complain than praise. I'm enjoying it a lot though.

I'm cautiously optimistic about the Picard series, even though I haven't been able to get into Discovery.
