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...


Feels like a weak attempt to counter The Orville. Orville and Final Space are much better than this


As a HUGE trek fan who's also not up my own arse I gave it a go as I'll always watch anything Trek. It started off rocky but I've found the in jokes, the things shown/talked about they you never see in normal trek and the nods to everything trek to be highly amusing. If you take this more as a rick and morty meets star trek it's pretty enjoyable you just had to take it for what it is rather than a classic trek.


A brilliant show that, unlike most Trekkies, doesn’t take itself to seriously and is able to poke fun at some of the sillier aspects of the universe without being a fully blown parody. The writing is great and the characters are as deep as we’ve come to expect from other adult animation.


This was obviously done by people that really hate Star Trek, this show is atrocious and the sad part is that they could have done a fine job because the aesthetics is fine, the writing on the other hand is horrible, they could have done a whole series in the TNG universe and we would have love it, instead we get this lame attempt at humor, you know that kind that really piss you off. The characters are filled with your expected trope, the rebel girl that insult all regulations but that in the end somehow saves the day, therefore reinforcing the message that you have to break the rules always and not only you don't face the consequences but you actually solve the problem! The comedy relief that of course is the one that wants to follow the rules of starfleet and instead becomes the target of all the insults and fails at everything. Then comes the "class warfare" the elite on the bridge vs all those poor people in the lower decks, and of course the ones in the bridge never solve anything making them useless, but additional to that are bad people because never acknowledged the work of the "poor" in the lower decks. Do I need to go on? The message of optimism in Star Trek are a thing of the past, now everything is dark, unfunny and with class hate. Btw all dumb characters are white and male and all smart and witty are female and of any other color than white, very subtle there guys, very subtle. Guess they have a villain that looks like Trump! BTW I'm not even american and I'm already tired of that crap wish I could vote Trump just out of spite. Fuck off with this garbage.


This is a good animated show. If you're a Star Trek fan it's a pretty good show. Is it Rick and Morty? No, but who cares? It's funny and goes beyond my expectations. This could have been a lame PG piece of garbage but it's legitimately entertaining and funny. The characters are great, the animation is dope, and it's excellent fan service.


It's a comedy, in the style of the most popular shows in the genre. It's a show that seeks to get new fans. It's very good what they're doing


Do yourself a favor and watch Futurama instead. Tepid and strictly for hardcore trekkies only.


Much better than Orville, give it a try.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
