Finally watched the whole series- I liked it... fine.

It had some wonderful emotion in it and some great acting. The interactions with Trek favorites were all quite good. I loved Will and Deanna and their child. I'm ready for a cooking and wilderness adventure show about them.
The last scenes with Data were really nicely moving.
Overall, I found the Romulan brother/ sister duo tiring.
Annika/ 7 of 9 was great. I liked her much better than how they utilized her on Voyager and I love the idea of space frontier lawpeople a lot.
I think I agree that the samurai was a little bit of a question mark? Is he a stand-in for Wesley or something? They had some nice scenes with Picard but overall...?
I'm not sure about Raffi and the captain. They seem like fine actors but I didn't really buy their connection or the connections to Picard very well. And the connections were trumped solidly every time a TNG hero showed up.
I thought Soji and Jurati were interesting characters worthy of further development. Alison Pill is an outstanding emotionally riveting actor. And these two were far more interesting than the other 3 crew members. Frankly, the Romulan friends/ bodyguards/ assistants to Picard at the winery were more interesting than the captain and raffi I think.
I'll watch Season 2. And I'm starting Discovery though I have a REALLY hard time with the way Klingons are portrayed.
