Have you ever considered that the Prime Directive is not only not ethical, but also illogical, and perhaps morally indefensible?

  • Oh boy, Mrs. Flood…

    At this point, she has to be a Time Lord, right? She knows what a TARDIS is (though crucially, she didn’t recognize the Doctor’s TARDIS until she actually saw it dematerialize, and she also didn’t recognize the Doctor himself), and in last week’s episode she exactly mirrored the Doctor’s line about Time Lords regenerating to “hide themselves away”.

    The fourth-wall breaking stuff is interesting, but I feel like she’s got to be a Time Lord, possibly one we haven’t met before.






  • That was an almost stereotypical RTD finale - a strong emotional core, with a resolution that threatens to go off the rails entirely.

    The actual resolution of the Sutekh part was probably the weakest aspect, for me. The Doctor…threw him into the time vortex again, but this time it’s permanent, I guess precisely because he’d done it once before. Okay, fine, I guess.

    The stuff with Ruby’s mother resolved more nicely, even if I’m not sure the actual events on Ruby Road hold together all that well. The idea of someone being important simply because people believed her to be important is a nice sentiment, and Louise’s ordinariness makes Ruby a kind of anti-Clara (I really like Clara, but I still think this is a good thing).

    Mrs. Flood still doesn’t seem evil to me.



  • Yeah, as recently as June 4, Prodigy-related content on StarTrek.com said the following in the footer:

    Star Trek: Prodigy Season 1 is available to stream on Netflix outside of markets including Canada where it is available on CTV.ca and the CTV App, France on France Televisions channels and Okoo, in Iceland on Sjonvarp Simans Premium, as well as on SkyShowtime in the Nordics, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Central and Eastern Europe.

    This latest announcement says:

    Star Trek: Prodigy will stream on Netflix globally (excluding Canada, Nordics, CEE, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Russia, Belarus and Mainland China) and Season 1 is currently available on SkyShowtime in the Nordics, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal and Central and Eastern Europe with Season 2 coming soon. Season two has launched in France on France Televisions channels and Okoo.

    They’ve completely dropped the CTV reference, even though season 1 is still available there.
