Checked out ep. 4.  Good show.  It takes getting used to when you take the Prime Directive and rip it all to shreds...and a nice special guest in this ep.   ;D

1. Man, they are pulling in A list talent.  I loved the special guest.

I love this show. This episode was SOOOOO TNG and ...please give this series a full season pickup for next season.

The Brother got a promotion!

I need Fox to give this show a 20 plus episode Season 2. I love it so much!

This has been a really good show.  (I wonder if it was intentional that he's mirroring Geordi.  But started as helmsman then promoted to Chief Engineer.  But now that I think about it; this isn't the first time they've shown his intellect.  He's had other insights before this, iirc.)

Re-read my orginal post.  When the show started I wasn't so sure about it.  By now, it's a favorite of mine.

I love this show so much. And anyone on the fence, the Tron-esque ep should have made a believer out of you. :D A great many of the eps (well, all of them IMO) are well thought out and this was no exception. Its like old school Trek being a commentary on a lot of what's happening today, plus delivering cool thought provoking ideas and concepts to boot.

LaMarr, La Forge, I see what they did there, plus making him the chief engineer, plus mirroring his relationship with the Data of the show, Isaac. And I'm fine with it. They make him wear a visor though they're going to get a very stern letter from me.

The only character on the bubble for me is Gordon. He's basically the Tom Paris of the show (which makes me wonder if Alara is the B'lanna of the show) but I'm sure next season he'll get a few spotlight eps to flesh him out a bit.
