    Is anyone a Star Trek TNG super fan here.

    I?m looking for an episode where the enterprise comes swooping in from the sky over a farm on earth in a big pivotal moment during the episode but I don?t remember what that pivotal moment was lol

    It was daylight and maybe the farm was in france but I could be wrong.

    Help me obi-wan keno......ehhhh wrong franchise.

    Fact is, I asked a couple times on purpose, if anyone thought Joker might make more than TROS. No one said yes. Not even you.
    I'm not sure either was a "victim of TLJ". Solo was a film nobody asked for. Heck, I liked TLJ, loved the character of Han Solo, but I wasn't interested in Solo. I never got to watch it in its cinematic release, got to watch part of it in an airplane (but dozed off) and watched snippets of it on TV. None of my friends saw it either. It was a prequel that doesn't really affect any of the other Star Wars stories. It was a story you could have skipped and wouldn't have missed anything. At least in RO, we got to see how the Death Star plans were stolen prior to ANH.

    TROS could be a "victim" and if it were, I'd blame it equally to TFA and TLJ. TFA failed to bring something new and compelling outside of nostalgia (something the international audience has less of). TLJ IMO ended up the way it is because of TFA. TFA was criticized for its lack of originality, TLJ went too far off for some fans.
    TROS is probably an audience tired of Star Wars in general.

    IMO it shows also on toys. Kids nowadays don't know who the OT characters are. Nobody was buying any of the toys here in my country apart from the lightsabers. This year, one of our friends gave away SW action figures to the kids. None of the kids played (or even opened) them. Without nostalgia, I don't think SW as a franchise has anything to stand on right now.

    So what's popular over there? What are kids into?
