@ericmann Maybe my expectations are lower than others or I’m just happy to go along for the ride with characters I love, but I’m generally entertained by all the new series. I’m able to separate opinions and inconsistencies from my enjoyment of the stories.
@ramsey Being disappointed in how a certain character or scenario turned out doesn't limit my ability to enjoy the overall story. I've been absolutely thrilled about all the new series. Even Lower Decks has been pretty fun in an odd kind of way.
@ericmann @ramsey Paris always held such promise since we don't generally see actual convicted criminals (and how they're treated by 24th century Earth). His intro which showed a rehabilitation focused corrections system set up some world building
and later intersected the Maqui in interesting ways.
I think they didn't quite deliver on that promise long-term well enough, and we shall not speak of the transwarp episode, but he was fun enough.
Now... Harry Kim is underrated.
