Having quite a blast watching Star Trek from the pilot onwards after decades and after I know something of astronomy and engineering.
Have had my engineering schooling and fairly deep astronomy hobby and then a couple decades since I last watched Star Trek. Am loving it big time. It's a brand new perspective where only I and the times have changed but the shows remain as they were so long ago.
Too much to discuss but at a high level all sorts of pictures of astronomical objects grace the sets and a lot of discussion of astronomical object types and so on come up. Last time through I knew nothing of these matters.
The episode where a civilization does all the war on computers is about 8 or 9 episodes in and that is described to be in 'Star Cluster Ngc321' at the very start. Your homework is to determine what is wrong with that claim.
The 1st Khan episode comes up and earth history is often mentioned with things like 1990 having world war 3 and so on which is classic for future space shows and movies to so greatly miss how long it will really take to get to some level of space exploration and so on. Think 2001 for example. Won't happen for many decades if ever for example.
Loving it overall, a real treat
