The female you call "Number One" has the superior mind and would produce highly intelligent children. Although she seems to lack emotion, this is largely a pretense. She has often had fantasies involving you.

Sudy wrote: Wed Sep 23, 2020 2:20 pm I guess Into Darkness left a bad taste in my mouth as far as corruption in Starfleet is concerned. As much as I love Peter Weller. (Different universe, I know.) I'd be happy enough to forget Romulus was ever destroyed, as well. That event is too "big"... it reshapes the entire universe. Just like the synth attack. But, it's the sandbox we've been given.
The reverse is also true, in that it's too big to simply ignore. Trying to pretend it didn't happen just leads to awkwardness. It's unfortunate, but the changes made in the reboot go in both directions. In having destroyed Romulus in the Prime, and Vulcan in the alternate, they created a ripple effect that does change things. In a way, it was kind of selfish of them to do that for the 2009 movie. But with Picard, it's the first time we've seen this side of the Universe since Nemesis, and it's an opportunity to see how Picard and his friends have dealt with the fallout from that ensuing event and to do some worldbuilding. This is one of the reasons I was looking forward to Picard, and was disappointed when it got nothing more than a passing mention. For me, Picard feels like it's just there existing in a void due to so little worldbuilding attempt to connect it to everything else. Yes, there is a threat, and yes he seems to have been accused of going against Starfleet, but to what end? How does that tie into the grander scheme of things? And how have things become so far gone as to have Picard going against them? These things need to be be fully explored.

Apparently, they have started airing the first season of Discovery on regular over the air CBS, Thursday nights at 10 PM (Eastern).

I just missed the start of last night but have set to record whatever else they air for it.

I started watching the other day, but it turned into a pumpkin after 3 episodes. I was prompted to cough up their blood money to see any more.

Jeff hates paying for streaming (and he still hates the Amish, I believe...which still boggles the mind) so that carries over to anything that premieres on streaming. Best to just let him vent.

Yes, all of season 1 is airing OTA.

I didn't see an advertisement so I can't speak to that. All I know is what happened when I tried to watch last weekend, it appeared as "On Demand" from CBS (not their pay channel) but only 3 episodes were there...I was prompted to subscribe if I wanted to see a 4th. Maybe it is free elsewhere but not on Comcrap?

More likely the 4th episode will show up this week and the 5th next week and so on.

What coop said. It's showing over the air, so they're probably not going to just make them all available at once. The intent is that you watch it over the air on a weekly basis like most shows being shown over the air, or you catch up once they air.

But since you're already paying 180 dollars a month or so for Comcast like a sucker, why not just bite the bullet and subscribe to CBS? :P

And most likely, they're probably showing it on CBS as a sort of promotion for All-Access.

I've said this before, but just in case anyone doesn't know, there's frequently (every 2-3 months) a free CBS All Access promotion for a free month (and usable by people who've already had a trial before).

I also finished watching Lower Decks, and overall, I found it silly but enjoyable, though....

Spoiler:
It felt a little awkward how the last episode had everyone aboard a ship die and they just glossed over it and kept the jokes coming.

Also, is Riker going to cameo in *every* series? (They're going to have to figure out how to put him in Discovery)

Season 3 is off to a good start. I was afraid it would veer away from the idea of Star Trek, but instead they’re actually embracing the Federation. The final few minutes made me tear up a little, even. :oops:

Not on next week (Presidential debate). It is on the week after though (that's as far ahead as my AT&T guide channel goes).

I sub to Disney + and $140/mo to AT&T for cable/internet. In this instance, I can side with Jeff in that I'm not going to pay more to sub to CBS. I only got Disney because I knew for a fact we'd get good use out of it (my wife and kid love Disney movies, we watched the Mandalorian, watched/rewatched several Star Wars and Marvel movies, working on the last 2 seasons of the clone wars (season 6 may have been on TV, but I don't remember it).

Probably will take advantage of the free periods for CBS eventually and catch up on all the Star Trek stuff there. Haven't seen/heard of anything else of interest on CBS to make me want to sub.

Netflix was at least tempting for the Marvel shows, but they're not something my wife would watch with me. Hard to find a significant amount of time I can watch TV w/o her.

I dunno...others are reporting it's free, but I seem to be getting it only in bits. 4 bits to date, so some of it must be free Now, maybe there's some caveat, like I need to install their own streaming app so it makes it easy for them to charge me if I forget to drop after a free trial. The shows I have seen available to me are Comcrap On Demand.

Yes and no. I'm from the future but here for the beer. In the future, InBev is granted a perpetual trademark on the term "beer", assimilates every brewery on the planet and converts them all to Bud Light factories.

Yes, that's because, as hepcat and others have said, Season 1 is airing on CBS on Thursday nights this fall. They've aired 4 episodes already; the 5th will likely be available for free On Demand after it airs on the 29th. They're not going to put those episodes up for free before they've aired.

On CBS All Access, yes. It's been streaming there since 2017.

Elsewhere? No.

Look, the law is clear that if you stream one episode for free, you have to let people watch the rest of the entire series unless they actively stop the streaming.
