Star Trek: Lower Decks‘s “Envoys”

Episode 2 is much more encouraging than episode 1, as there’s less forced humor, and the whole thing is full of the usual Trekian optimism along with all the silly stuff. My take on the latest Star Trek: Lower Decks episode, “Envoys.”

An excerpt:

One of my biggest concerns about Lower Decks going in was that it was going to be mean-spirited. This was mostly borne out of Rick and Morty depending a great deal on humor centered around sarcastic abuse and nastiness. Not that that’s a bad thing in and of itself, but it’s not really a good fit for Star Trek.

“Envoys” shows that perhaps I needn’t have worried.
