You know it is kinda funny - that there is a "Beta Annari" who is an enforcer for a lookalike for TNG's half-Betazoid. (A)nnari vs Z(oid), the inverse alphabet. And the Beta Annari even has super sense that allow him to tell what others are feeling in a way!

1253 olfactory receptor genes. Which is a pretty meaningless number, since we don't really know how many genes are directly related to olfactory senses in humans.

If the line had been about actual olfactory receptors, that number would be ridiculously low. Humans have around 6 million receptors, while dogs have up to 300 million.

EDIT: With some googling, apparently we do know how many olfactory genes humans have - apparently it's in the mid-hundreds. Which would make the Beta Annari's senses only maybe 3-4 times more discerning than our own.
Amazing...just super powered amazing. :)

So I really like the Picard stuff, but I shut off when we go to the Bor(in)g Cube. And it seems the stuff I like is headed to the stuff I don’t like.

I've been growing increasingly bored with it myself. When it first showed up, with that sign about "xxxx days since the last assimilation" I thought "Ooooh, THAT's not gonna last!".... but it has.

I do like this show and look forward to it each week. But I’ve realised that to me Star Trek = Star Fleet. While I understand that the universe contains far more than Federation starships, what I like most about Star Trek is the stuff with Federation starships. That’s the ‘universe’ I’ve been invested in since I was a kid. It’s a bubble in a large universe, but Star Trek has always been that bubble.

I guess what I’m saying is — gimme a proper starship! I love big Starfleet starships!

The ship they have is functional enough, but it doesn't have much screen presence. I literally could not tell you what it's called right now without looking it up.

The ship is called La Sirena, but I don't think anyone has actually named it in dialogue in the show, I only know from Memory Alpha.

That will come down to what licenses were rented by SH to be used...for their variant show of Trek. Oh yes, they had to pay, but the latest word whispered...in truth. That Kurtzman reduced the use of such renting, which would lend to the premise of greater reduction of Prime Trek ships or references. As the story currently constructed, it is about Picard's journey...or dismantling of him. If you want to see Ships, watch any Trek show or movie, before 2009.

I wonder if the climax of the season might see them confronted by the current Enterprise.
The question comes to mind, to which Enterprise would show up, Prime Trek or Discovery era type...the betting money is on the latter. If that happens.

I was disappointed that we didn't get our regularly-scheduled Borg Cube interlude last episode. I like Soji, and her empathetic journey to understanding the ex-Borg and finding out about the secrets of the assimilated Romulans.

I'm not so keen on Narek, and I really don't like his sister or the weird relationship they have going on.

It was mentioned briefly, when they got landing clearance at Freecloud. but the name just didn't stick in my mind. I hadn't realised that was the first time it was mentioned.

Neither. The question is which Enterprise is in commission, is the Enterprise-E still in service, or another letter?

I'd point out though that the holograms of various Enterprises at Star Fleet Command in episode 2 did show the Discovery model of the original Enterprise.

Having anyone able to turn off the EMH seems like a pretty bad idea. Just from a safety perspective. Sure, I can see the crew of a ship being entrusted with it, but, the doctor isn't crew. She's just a passenger. Being able to shut down an EMH in the middle of treating an obviously distressed patient just seems ... off.

She is part of the crew of the ship for now. She even gets to use the transporter, which can be a far higher security risk than shutting off an EMH.

The EMH is... an emergency program. If a crew member says there is no emergency to take care off and turns him off, he better do exactly that. We really don't want some holograms interfering with ship operations. They are supposed to support the crew, not stand in their way.

I think the only Enterprise we've seen in an appropriate time frame was Enterprise D, with a third nacelle, but that was in a Q influenced timeline.

Just heard that a recent Novel (dealing with Picard) release, has the Sovereign class Enterprise was in service, under the command of Worf.

Yes, that was indeed the model of Enterprise, from the Discovery era, not TOS. And the Galaxy Class shown, that was a variant. If you watch and slow down the 1st eps of STP, there is a missed alternation on the lower front Keel of the ship, just below the saucer section. And yes, it was a dream sequence, but there was small minor change to the look of the ship and it does include Ten Forward windows and seating arrangements

It would be one we haven't seen yet, presumably?
Or might not...technically the Name of Enterprise was still on the Sovereign class, as per the new novel release dealing with Picard and the Romulans upcoming sun nova situation. Worf was given command. and later Picard got an early version of the Odyssey Class. We do not know as of now if the Sovereign class is still active in the time of 2399.

Worf, from what I've heard, haven't read the book, was given command 14 years ago, when Picard left to run the mission to evacuate the Romulans. We don't know the current status of the Enterprise-E, whether she's still in commission and who is currently in command.

As to the second paragraph ... I do not understand, what the point of this observation?
