Been missing WORF22's  happy birthday posts... and I noticed its "The_Donsters" Birthday today! Happy Birthday... wherever you are!  :djparty:

Yes, we lost Worf22 somewhere along the way. Pretty sad how desolate this place is now.

I saw the trailer. I'm not interested in this series, matter of fact I just don't like this type of cartoon and from what I've seen on YouTube, it doesn't appear that many other people like it either. I guess the era of decent Star Trek shows is gone. Hopefully Strange new world's will be good , not holding my breath though.

I hope it will be good, I actually think it will . I actually liked Picard, maybe not as much as TNG but it was a good show. I will go back and check out season 2 of Discovery to catch up on the Pike / Spock storyline.

Riker and Troi are married and seem to have a daughter.

So... do you think it captured the futuristic and utopian ideals and Humanist Philosophies of Roddenberry's trek? Or is it just basically the nostalgia of familiar characters? 

The first scene of the beginning sequence of the show shows a broken pane of glass which indicates something is broken in the Star Trek universe. As the story progresses you learn what is broken and by the end of the season, there has been great progress towards fixing the brokeness. The story shows how the utopian future of Star Trek can be affected by the outside influence of Romulans which is unknown at the time, who set up the synthetic beings as the enemy of humans who in turn outlaw their existence in the federation.I can see a morality play such as TOS and TNG frequently used to tell a story based on current events.In my opinion, it stands up to Roddenberrys ideals pretty well but it's not perfect. The nostalgia of seeing beloved characters was great too.
