If you haven’t yet, definitely go check out STAR TREK LOWER DECKS on CBS All Access. I highly recommend it.
The concept behind STLDS was to decapitate THE ORVILLE as the premiere STAR TREK-esq “parody,” if you will, by attempting to copy everything that makes THE ORVILLE one of the best.
Alex Kurtzman is the ultimate beta male. There cannot be any strong, white men in his “Trek” anymore. The assassination of white men, human or alien, continues to poison a series that was once about true diversity of race, strength, religion, everything!
…why is it so difficult for Alex Kurtzman to get it right?
The news and official information that has come from both CBS and so-called “inside sources” are extremely conflicting.
Episode three, that which shall not be named, did it for me. The various middle fingers high in the sky to the fandom is what has officially made me turn off the computer.
You were going to impress your significant other and hope for a great, unforgettable night of car sex but in the end, you’re not going anywhere cos you’re broke down! On top of that, there are two dead, fat people in the trunk that smell like they’ve been there for God knows how long!
It’s a fictional organization that has had the most non-fictional influences in all of our mythos. Starfleet represents the best of what we can be as human beings. It has been that way for nearly 54 years!
The experience I wanted was that of someone who wanted to see this episode without looking for the tropes of identity politics or bad storytelling.
We truly, truly need to take these rumors with a grain of salt and heed the forewarning.
