The feeling is mutual. He belongs to that same mural that includes Bob Ross, Steve Irwin, Mr. Rogers, and Jim Henson.

Not so much for me. I was watching the works of both growing up. They occupied different territory, most certainly. Williams’ manic improvisation VS Varney’s developed and consistent characterization. They had their niche and were both tragically cut short, respectively. Also worth noting Paul Reubens in that conversation, with slightly more mixed opinions.

It’s been so long, though I assume most are thinking of a different Dr. Otto these days:

Nothing against Alfred Molina, a powerhouse in his own right.

Already belongs to public domain? Yeesh, lots of confidence there.

Would never have guessed, but he was enamored with the guy.

I say get creative. Score and smoke the canned ham. Use the Hi-C with some apple cider vinegar, garlic, and other seasonings to make a reduction glaze.

“This is not going home to adorn my shelves,” Roddenberry said. “This is going to get restored and we’re working on ways to get it out so the public can see it and my hope is that it will land in a museum somewhere.”

Also to remind us that there hasn’t been a tremendous amount of character focus beyond the small core. We’ve seen these faces and maybe even remember a few of their names over the years. However, some of them still feel like strangers a few cubicles over where we say “What’s up?” but hesitate to include a first name or develop a nickname.

The catch of the episode put that front and center. I get why Worf had to spend time accepting that his path would never see him fully accepted by his Klingon brethren. It’s not too far a stretch to accept that O’brien is able to take so much punishment and bounce back (minus the PTSD effects lasting longer than 1 episode). Discovery’s crew is convinced to help in future Burnham’s cause with little more than 1-2 lines of detail. Some of those bits even the audience wouldn’t know until we’re told.

I will admit, that much of the potential growth is handicapped by truncated shooting schedules and seasons. We haven’t had 24-26 per batch where we can hyper focus. Only so much time to dedicate to bridge, engineering, sickbay, the bar, and crew quarters.

It all seems just a bit too shallow… the tension forced.

Side note: I did appreciate the end of act 2 callback to the Short Trek: Calypso . Really tied the series together.
