While I haven’t read the link, I was interested in the idea of revisiting Insurrection. For me it is classic Star Trek. Everything Trek should be. But it suffered from poor production values and a pedestrian screenplay that made it feel like it belonged on a TV screen. I think with better costumes, make up, effects and a tighter script people would not view it as they do.

I always felt it would have made a decent two part TV episode.

The fruit thing looked awful and was awful.

It’s the Annoying Orange. It’s well known for being awful.

We Brits were doing crap talking oranges decades before that imposter:

It’s the Annoying Orange. It’s well known for being awful.

This lives up to its reputation. I lasted 42 seconds.

What, Annoying Orange is still around? I would’ve thought that meme was long dead, to be honest. Remarkable attention to detail though – the eye-lighting, the authentic TMP-style (and later TWOK-style) warp effect…

It’s better than the original movie. Wrath of khan was a bore.

^^^^ Discovery fan alert.

“Random Transporter Room Guy”? ONLY if John Winston is still available!!!

We might be seeing more “In Defense of Voyager” pieces. Compared to the steaming hot garbage of Discovery, Voyager was a profound work of fine space art. Like, remember the time Tuvok was stuck on the jungle set with a group of kids who were being Logan’s Runned or something? I don’t exactly recall what happened, but it likely beat the pants off anything occurring with Mirror Pippa & Friends.
