Was looking for a Trek tread here...guess this is the one??

Holodeck in TNG and DS9 was terrific.

Give me a holodeck episode of Nog suffering from PTSD vs. all of Star Trek Discovery and Picard episodes combined.

The Channel?
Star Trek Discovery...it's the newest one. Besides Star Trek Picard.

Ive been trying to get into it for 3rd time and is just not star treky enough.

One thing I noticed is they play dramatic music almost all the time, whereas TNG or DS9 you would just hear humming of the spaceship in the background as they conducted their business. Believe it or not it makes massive difference....not everything should be so dramatic.

probably haven't seen any of that
I wouldn't be opposed to giving it a try but I mainly watched the older stuff.
Saw some earlier movies and series, picard era also

Don't need one.
Wouldn't change my LA dime banging, needle exchange program lifestyle.

I couldn’t get past more than 5 minutes of Picard. Is Discovery good?

Nevermind
I never watched whatever new version of Picard you guys are talking about
I watched the original one from like 20 years back or more

Does the genetically engineered dinosaur in Jurassic World count?

Something engineered specifically to be displayed for people to look at....that was given the ability to turn invisible.

Even the holodeck has to be less stupid than that.
