In Topic: New Star Trek Series starring Patrick Stewart

06 August 2018 - 11:25 PM

Trek seems to enjoy being mired in the past.  JJ Trek, Discovery, and now, an almost 80 year old Patrick Stewart being brought back to resurrect the brand.  Is Trek devoid of any new ideas?  Memo to Trek hierarchy....do as your show's preface purports.....boldly go where no Trek has gone before.   


In Topic: Star Trek: Discovery. Series talk and discussion

While I'm happy that Trek is back on TV, I'm wondering why Trek is, again, moving backwards in the timeline.  The last three Trek adventures: Enterprise, the JJ-Universe movies, and now Discovery are set in known timelines.  Why not go to the Next, Next, Next, Next, Next generation where the past is an ancient memory, where the future and the stories can go where no Trek has gone before??!!!  Are the writers bereft of imagination and ideas?  Why limit yourself with vestiges of the past where you're saddled with all of the previous Trek canon?  I'll pony up the latinum for this first year, but I'll need to be wowed to buy in for season 2.  Live long and prosper.
