    So it was about that alien. Unsure what impression I would've got for that birdy-alien if he was wearing sneakers and a white tank top but okay

    I don’t want to be human. I want to see gamma rays, I want to hear X-rays, and I want to smell dark matter. Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can’t even express these things properly, because I have to—I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid, limiting spoken language, but I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws, and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me. I’m a machine, and I can know much more.

        I know, I'm so excited! I liked the first season, it's a very interesting show in terms of mysteries and understanding their technological level.

          Have to admit, I'm a little surprised that this got a season 2 pickup. While I found that the show improved so much in its second half that I'm happy that it did get renewed, I would not at all have been surprised to learn that a lot of people didn't watch that far and that the show was ending.

            I'm glad to hear that. I hope they take this opportunity to improve the universe and bring more details to it in season 2 and put more thought into it.

              So, I just got around to finishing this and it's probably the most horrible sci-fi show I've watched in a long time (I saw someone in this thread mention Nightflyers, and this is so much worse than that in my opinion). I really wanted to like it because of Katee Sackoff (and she was the best thing about this show), but I found it mostly horrible. There were a few characters that I found ok/interesting (Niko, Cas, William and Bernie), but a lot of it was mainly due to the actors actually being able to act (some are better than others) and not really because the characters were well developed or written in a coherent fashion. Zayne and the new guy they woke up towards the end of the season were bearable (but the actors are in need of more acting lessons and better dialog imo), but everyone else was absolutely horrible (including everyone on Earth).

              Most of the "young crew" made the show feel like it was supposed to be a parody (at times I couldn't tell if the show was trying to be serious or not, I'm kind of still not sure). They seem to be a compilation of the worst millennial stereotypes imaginable. I wouldn't trust any of them to get my order right at McDonald's, never mind an important mission to space to meet an unknown alien race for the first time (one that could be a threat to earth). And they don't really get any better throughout the season, (one gets slightly better right before dying, but three of them actually get worse as the season goes on, and that one of them is pregnant after everyone was supposedly sterilized was just... Ugh. I'm hoping it's some kind of killer alien baby that takes out all three of them).

              The main story with the aliens in the last 2 or 3 episodes got kind of interesting, so I might see how the second season goes, but really every character besides Niko, Cas, William, Bernie, Zayne, and Beacham(?), needs to die or get a personality transplant, or I probably won't make it through the second season.
