I am tired of the sci-fi trope which demands, for dramatic effect, everything must be blown up: space stations, planets, death stars, etc.
... as long as the precious humans are still breathing, nothing else matters .. What about the horses and chickens? Cows? Pigs? All the supplies needed for mining, distilling water, farming .. all the supplies that were onboard for the colony at Alpha Centauri ..?
The entire show seems to be built around bouncing from one catastrophic crisis to another. Is there really an underlying or overarching story being told? - - or is it just episodic disasters with heavy-handed themes of family, friendship and embracing your special-ness?
At one point Don jokes, while running, that there is never any time to deal with anything.
And speaking of time and waste - - it was annoying when Scarecrow's handler human decided the time had come to make the ultimate sacrifice ... despite the fact that he had time to attempt a run back to the Jupiter. But no, best to use that time for giving farewell speeches to Will and Scarecrow. If only they had landed just a bit closer to their destination.
And speaking of speeches..
Judy: "Should I give a speech?"
Judy, you are you mother's child, pontification is in your blood. Go ahead, try not to give a speech..
Ever since the mutiny, Maureen seems to be the de facto captain of the Resolute. The decision to destroy the Resolute and send the children away felt very contrived - - whatever was necessary for the biggest emotional gut-punch. And they really drug out the departure of the children's ship.
On the plus side, I will give the show credit for the joke about why would a ship have a self-destruct feature. And all the foreshadowing of Judy's bio-dad.
Season 3 could be interesting ... but you know it will be messy and hamfisted.
