"…Here's what we do know: "USS Callister" is being written by Brooker and William Bridges, and will be directed by Toby Haynes. Jesse Plemons, Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson, Michaela Coel, and Billy Magnussen will star, which is everything I need in my life. Speculation-wise, it already looks better than The Orville (which is a mess). Might it take on some kind of Galaxy Quest-like life? Or will these actors on the show-within-a-show be trapped in these roles forever?…"

They need a better tailor.

I'm not sure that this isn't the moment that "Black Mirror" jumps the shark . . .

Shouldn't they at least look like they are in a paramilitary organization or something?

Boy theres what "every" ST fan wants to hear.
Star Trek (TOS especially IMHO) rocked. Galaxy Quest was a blast. Loved it..
BUT..Never The Twain Shall (or should) Meet.

Oh dear God (

Calm down folks, it was an episode in the 'Black Mirror' anthology series.

Sure, Callister was a dick, but mindwiping him and leaving him a drooling stooge was dark …

It was the second episode of DM I've seen (the first, was the first ep with the pig-Bleeped texting politician theme. Yah, gave up on that one).

Went through the precis of the rest of them and if it looked like something I might enjoy watching, I gave it a go. Haven't found an S1 or S2 ep I want to watch yet.

Like how the CGI got better as the episode went along.
