A spinoff from Discovery will go back to episodic Trek and will be the adventures of Captain Pike and crew from the USS Enterprise.

Quote:
Strange New Worlds stars Anson Mount (Captain Christopher Pike), Ethan Peck (Spock), and Rebecca Romijn (Number One) as they pilot the U.S.S. Enterprise to explore the galaxy in the years before Captain James T. Kirk takes the helm.

I will try to watch. As.long as they don't take a huge crap on Star Trek canon the way Discovery does I might just like the show.
You know like it turns out Michael Burnam's mother was actually Khan Noonien Singh. James T. Kirk was a Romulan spy who ate Spock's oldest son. A time travelling race of intergalactic nitwits accidentally destroy the Earth, which is made of chocolate, and now all earthlings are homeless, chocolate stealing vagabonds.
Dumb crap like that.

What you posted sounds a lot better than the last 20 years. Very Happy
I don't know, someone must like all the crazy Trek shit they've been putting out.
It must be making money and making some people happy.
Makes no sense to me though.
The casting of the 2009 Star Trek movie was perfect, too bad the story was just stupid as fuck.
The stupid Trek hasn't stopped since.

The old TV shows and Trek movies weren't all perfect either but at least they are watchable.

I just reread this Trek novel: Dark Mirror

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Mirror_(Star_Trek_novel)[/url]

I think the story is great and would make a good movie.
There's an alien character in it called "Hwii" that is described like a dolphin and the author came up with a antigrav device that Hwii uses to move around the ship.
That's fun and creative and in no way deviates from any existing Next Generation sci-fi tech. It just adds on.
Which is all they ever had to do rather than rebooting over and over.

Strangely enough, seeing as how I have been watching Trek since the 60's, I have no issues with how they have redone Trek. Its all good TV if you take it for what it is. Discovery was excellent, Picard was excellent, and I have even higher hopes for Strange new Worlds because I prefer episodic TV rather than a single super long story arch. Its not STOS, STNG, Voyager, or Deep Space Nine. I left out Enterprise because even though I watched it all, I never liked it that much.

There's nothing wrong with new Trek.

It's it's own thing.
It's dark.
It's gritty.
It's vulgar.
It's ugly.
It's unsophisticated.
It's pessimistic.
And like a rebellious teenager it doesn't believe it owes anything to what has gone before. At least when it comes to established canon. It's Trek for the modern audience.
For some viewers it is more entertaining, more exciting, more grounded in reality than classic Trek.
It's much more brutaly honest but far less hopefull about the future because the future is now. Star fleet is rotting from the inside just like contemporary government. Humans have lost whatever gains they have made towards intelligence, dignity and respect for one another just the way social media is today. It's not Roddenberry Trek. It's better. It's Trek the way Quentin Tarantino or HBO would envision it.
The future is a place that is populated with the worst aspects of our current ugly society only amplified by advanced technology.
New Trek's message is forget positive societal progress. That's boring as hell. Let's show what would happen if humans managed to make giant leaps in technological progress but still behave, speak and act like they do on your favorite youtube channel.
It's like playing the game What If? What if Seven of Nine became a murdering sociopath, forgetting all the positive lessons she learned aboard Voyager. Wouldn't that be f*cking cool?

Truth is I cope by thinking of new Trek as some alternative universe that distinctly separate from real Trek. Hopefully Paramount will begin to steer Trek back on course with Brave New Worlds.
