Feel the fear!
Screw you, Siege of AR-558! You took Nog's leg!
War in Star Trek seems to be Top Gun as long as you're on a ship and The Things They Carried the moment you beam down, and somehow that seems to actually be consistent across series. What Discovery saw of the war with the Klingons, most of it happened from a ship perspective. DS9 did the cool ship stuff as well as the wildly understaffed and underequipped field hospital episode. With the exception of how that Protocol 12 stuff was handled the first time we saw it, SNW hasn't had the need or opportunity to make the Federation-Klingon war related stuff "cool" at all, unless I'm forgetting something obvious as I tend to do, most likely from S1.
It's from Discovery S2, which is about Spock and features Pike, Una, and briefly the Enterprise. That's what created demand for a Pike show in the first place, so no complaints on his role, although Spock gets sucked into the melodrama in unfortunate ways. The trouble is, it's also the second-worst and also least cohesive season of Discovery.I saw the first ep before but I forgot about those hallucinations that Pike has about him feeling his death. So did him getting affected by future vision inducing ore happen in another series or a special or something? Should I watch that first?
No. Yes. Paramount said no, but time shenanigans say that it's been slightly adjusted from the past we see in the future.Btw, is Strange New Worlds an alternate dimension from Next Gen, DS9 and Voyager? Sort of like the Chris Pine movie version?
Ok, I've started on Strange New Worlds.

The living asteroid ep was sorta cute. Not sure about the religion thing but, hey, they have future vision ore so maybe the asteroid knew what to do too. Or maybe time out of sync wormhole aliens.
Btw, is Strange New Worlds an alternate dimension from Next Gen, DS9 and Voyager? Sort of like the Chris Pine movie version?
To be fair, that would be true whether it was the same timeline or not, accepting that as in TOS Pike was the captain of the Enterprise first. But I'd forgotten that detail until my rewatch of DS9 and it sure was more meaningful this timeSNW is in the same Star Trek Prime universe. It predates the Original Series by about a decade or so, and about 70 years after Enterprise, IIRC. So it is the same universe as TNG< DS9, and Voyager. Sisko even gets the Christopher Pike award in DS9.
