It certainly has a The search for Spock vibe. Sure youve got some valid points... just about all of which I might say apply to S1 as well... but I still think its a vast improvement from S1. And since were looking at a seasonal story arch... Im waiting to see if they sort some of the issues out.

We do know there was continuing chaos in the production show runner s replaced and new writers brought in etc. so it shouldnt be a big surprise I the writing still isnt as clean and tight as it should be.

But a few of the biggest issues with season 1 may have been solved.

1) a solid character in Pike that I can relate to and might want to be

2) a lighter atmosphere that would make me want to actually be on that ship.

I see... They all look like knock offs to me! ;-)  I guess I figure if your a fan of the style... whats the difference, though I think the price point is high.

I didn't realize they are selling a TON more licenses online... lots of DCU characters... and other stuff... which makes me think its odd they didn't get some of these in retailers like Walmart. 

 

The online prices are crazy IMO... $25 for these retro figures... the Target price I think is better.... half that.. but as others have said... the stores themselves seem to be moving them slowly. 

 

But hey if these are your bag... go get 'em!

Yeah... Its a fun show... and with the gags they are doing, it def has a different vibe than TNG... not nearly as serious... but wow.. watch DISCO and it back to back... and I think I prefer what we just saw in DISCO! and... that surprises even me!
