Being both a Star Trek and Rick & Morty fan I had some hopes, giving not so much importance about how piss off was the community of Trekkies about prior CBS shows. However, sadly, at least the first chapter feels like a bad parody. There are a lot of references, but humor is not as compelling or good as prior Mike McMahan shows.

Just when you thought CBS couldn't make any worse Trek, they vomit out this garbage. Not a funny thing in it and the animation is appalling. Roddenberry must be spinning in his grave at warp 9.

Looks like it comes from the SAME animation studio as Final Space, with many of the same character tropes. Not a "counter" to The Orville, but a look at the Trek universe and canon from the eyes of the usually expendable "Redshirts". In this universe, Starfleet Command staff don't always have "the RIGHT stuff, but instead are very, VERY LUCKY, always egotistically looking for ways to "make history" so they can get a mention in the official books, and are prone to take credit for the lower deck Geeks good ideas, and actions. Lots of hat tips and mentions to TOS characters, creatures, and memes, as well as a pretty hilariously accurate depiction as to what would probably occur if you ACTUALLY tried to spar someone with a Bat'leth. A bit of intrigue is injected with the disclosure of Ensign Beckett Mariner's lineage, which looks like it might be interesting. Didn't quite hit it out of the park the first episode, but, a fun and entertaining look at an alternate perspective of the Trek verse...
