    Also at mine, I’m going too. DS9 is by far my favourite series.

    Shame they couldnt get Avery Brooks to be in it though.

    I guess the three of us will meet here for a debrief afterwards then? :cool::p

    Well that was about what I expected from a television show documentary.

    The plot for the opening episode of an eighth season... I initially wasn't too keen on the idea of Kira putting together an army of Jem'Hadar soldiers but then when they explained the bit about Section 31 trying to bring the Bajoran religion to an end so they could be brought into the Federation it made a bit more sense. Discovery turned Section 31 into a joke, but I have no problem with them in the context of DS9 and in the hands of the people that created them.

    But that said, I dunno about this setup. It is without a doubt an absolute violation of the Prime Directive and I don't understand why Bajor would be important enough to the Federation for them to do that.

    Nailed it.

    Some of the best production, cinematography, special effects, costumes, makeup, set designs, etc. for a television show all completely undermined by some of the worst writing of all time.

    Had a nasty gastro bug over the weekend so missed it, I assume it will eventually be on DVD or a streaming service.

    Looks like Picard’s first officer is a dog

    It must've been going around - my wife was sick as a dog too and I didn't want to leave her alone to go to the cinema.

    I'll be catching it on DVD. I've read quite a bit of what's in it. The proposed Season 8 sounds a bit controversial.

    Ha, it's name is Number One. That's awesome.

    I hope there's a Riker cameo in the pilot (you can guarantee there will be a cameo from one other TNG character in the pilot) and there's a joke about that. I miss TNG wholesome jokes.

    More Borg.

    This has a bit of a Logan vibe to it. My money says the girl is his daughter.
