It just seemed like they were attempting to polish a turd. I really wanted to like it, like I said. It just felt like retread after retread and very little original thinking. I think the best episodes were perceived as such because they dealt with canon and familiar themes from our past recollections of the best Treks, and it was all nostalgic. When the show attempted originality it fell way flat. I have seen every episode of the series and would not lose one minutes sleep if I never saw them again.
Never forget that CGI Gorn, I was so embarrassed and no one was even watching.
