    And, let's not forget, that these are the shortest seasons Star Trek has ever seen. They only have a dozen or so episodes to establish stuff instead of the 20-24 they had previously. There's really only so much you can do in the time they have, so, a lot of questions are going to have to wait for a next season.
    Beats me how Trek gets weak season 1s do often.
    Takes time for metaplot to kick in I suppose. Sci fi shows often peak season 3 or 4 I suppose.

    As life would have it, after my post about how I'm not really enjoying the show as much as I'd like to, episode 5, for me, was really good.
