The description makes it sound like this could be Lower Decks’ take on Shore Leave.

Maybe we’ll finally get more insight into the mystery of the guys who installed Rutherford’s brain implants.

That would be great. As long as it’s not Section 31.

Loving the episode title. Bringing fantasies to life is also at the core of SciFi classic Solaris.

Mind’s mines are mine! (Pun intended. 😄)

Only a minor pun…

Just an FYI but the caption for the one photo is wrong. Shaxs isn’t present, but Ransom is.

A bit off topic, anyone excited for Star Trek day? I’m hoping for a Picard s3 trailer and maybe a new show announcement? Section 31 or Starfleet Academy probably.

Enterprise Season 5, secretly filmed and already in the can :-))

LOL, that would be so cool! Fingers crossed anyway. ;)

If they could pull off a romulan war season I’d be all for it!

As long as you’re not expecting an update on Trek 4, it’s all good…

Oh yeah I definitely can’t wait. And I’m pretty sure we’re getting a Picard trailer. Beside the fact we got a full trailer last year on Star Trek day for season 2, TM has a cryptic Matalas tweet on their page about the trailer coming.

Can’t wait! Sounds like Shore Leave in hell kind of episode. Also cool we are getting this on Star Trek day with the event. Two things to look forward to!

Lol honestly that first pic of Mariner and Tendi look like it could have been pulled from any. Umber of eps from any of the 3 seasons 😁

Can’t find the review article so I’ll post my thoughts here. Yes, it’s really old and no one will see it but doing it anyway.

Another terrible episode. Not one funny gag. None of their bits landed. In true Lower Decks fashion the entire episode was juvenile. I guess it’s supposed to reveal character traits but that goal was flawed for two major reasons. First, all the character traits shown were nothing the audience didn’t know already. And next, even if it was a deeper dive into them, these are all awful people and I would think the audience has no reason to care about anything about them.

Dang this show is a complete failure on all levels. It’s giving Star Trek Discovery a run for it’s money as the worst Star Trek show ever. And given what Secret Hideout has been making these days that’s quite a feat.
