Star Trek: Lower Decks‘s “Much Ado About Boimler”

The latest episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks tries to cram too much into its half-hour timeslot, and winds up serving none of them well at all. My take on “Much Ado About Boimler” over on Tor.com.

An excerpt:

The captain of the Division 14 ship is of the same species as Lieutenant Arex from the animated series—either an Edoan or a Triexian or an Edosian, depending on which tie-in material you read. In any case, he’s got the elongated head, three arms, and three legs. I am, for the record, all for bringing back as many aliens from the animated series as possible, please and thank you! We’ve already gotten a Caitian (T’Ana) and a Vendorian (in “Envoys“). I’d especially love to see the Nasats (the name we gave to M3 Green’s species from “The Jihad” in the Starfleet Corps of Engineers series) and the Skorr (also from “The Jihad”) and the Pandronians (from “Bem“).
