Time to settle this debate once and for all. Was it better than DS9? Did you personally like it better than DS9?

They should have pulled the same thing TNG and DS9 did with having more overlap between characters on the two series

>How Paramount Failed To Turn ‘Star Trek’ Into A Blockbuster Franchise

>Maybe cheaper Star Trek movies, films that could be successes at $300 million worldwide, could work. What was true in 2009 is now even more true today as the very idea of theatrical exhibition is in peril. The experiment of Bad Robot and Paramount’s initial Star Trek relaunch was a failure. Could spending A-level blockbuster bucks and offering A-level blockbuster thrills turn Star Trek into an A-level blockbuster franchise? The answer, three times in a row, was “No.”

I'm pleased to see the majority of replies damning JJ and Kurtzman.

I remember a while back someone posted a Youtube video outlining the nightmare that is Star Trek intellectual property ownership. Is this the video?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9n_zxsLocHE

wtf did Viacom think it was doing? was it trying to "sort-of" sell to itself the rights? From my first link it looks like Les Moonves gave Kurtzman and Abrams a sweat heart deal to heilm the star trek franchise regardless of whether it is profitable to Viacom or not

Is anyone else surprised that this show ended being not as awful as you expected? I mean it's nowhere close to the rest of the series in quality(except Picard, fuck that show) but its not absolute shit. I found myself kind of enjoying it and just want season 3 of The Orville to come the fuck out already.
Also is just a new running gag that Riker shows up in finales to save the day?

This. Overall its pretty average compared to most other modern animated series but terrible in the context of Trek. Slapping a Trek skin on something does not make it a Trek show. Most of the characters and plots in LD are pretty much the opposite of what we know about Starfleet and the UFP. I thought it was pretty bad in STD(modern grimdark sci-fi with a Trek skin) but LD takes it to a whole different level.

ST viewers have never seen a Ferengi female in natural habitat due to FCC concerns (naked on Ferenginar, subserviant to males). The ones viewers are exposed to are progressives.

However, we have to assume that since the workers of Quark's bar look for oo-mox from Bajorans that Ferengi female are not attractive (or they're coons).

It may be that the Ferengi on DS9 are far from home, and looking to get a bit of exotic pussy. These aren’t the kinds of girls a respectable Ferengi would marry, but they’re good for scratching an itch.

there's a bunch of books that have been "cowritten" by the actor and somebody who really writes it, but the iirc the Garak one was fairly unique in that it was basically a massaging of the notes the actor had put together about all the character's old experiences and stuff as opposed to just random stuff they brainstormed, so in theory that story in Stitch in Time is really what the actor was pulling from for emotional memory when Garak made an allusion to his stint as a gardener for the Romulan whoeverguy or when his claustrophobia acts up

I'm still trying to feel my way through Voyager period. The cast seems fine enough, except for Chakotay, who greatly annoys me.

Also going from TNG's remaster back to VOY's SD stings a bit. Harder to watch.

How well known are the most well known characters and events inside of the Star Trek Universe?

Like for example, everyone in the alpha quadrant has probably heard some version of the Battle of Wolf 359 and Sector 001. But how common knowledge is it that Picard was assimilated or that Riker saved the day?

Everyone seems to have heard of the Voyages of James Kirk and Spock

Data only really seems to be known to various science nerds who would subscribe to news on the subject ("Meet the Enterprise's Mechanical Man")
Same with Geordi, cybernetics still seem to be something of a niche interest.

Everyone has probably heard of "That Klingon in Starfleet", and that probably just got more intense by the end of DS9.

The Voyager would be famous by the end of its journey, so would DS9 by the end of the War
There's probably a bunch of Biographies of the mysterious Captain Sisko, the Religious Prophet who was also the Federation's Eisenhower and then mysteriously disappeared at the end of the war.

Everyone learns about Captain President Archer in grade school and is required to play out 4 semesters of his adventures as holo-logs

Star Trek has this problem where there's usually no sense that there's a universe beyond what's in front of you. This is normal for episodic TV but Trek cranks it up to 11 and it applies to everything from the characters to the Federation. It's just how the shows were written and I don't think it's worth thinking too hard about it, but there are two possibilities. Either these are extraordinary characters in an ordinary universe or ordinary characters in an extraordinary universe. I don't think there's any evidence pointing to the second possibility.

Everytime I look at dissident right threads there’s Star Trek discussion going in. There’s the usual Dukat Did Nothing Wrong memes, but there’s also genuine analysis apolitical of stuff. So what makes Star Trek so appealing to the extreme right, despite being a communist utopia?

Because you personally do not experience racism does not invalidate its existence.

The fact you would suggest that your failure to observe prejudice in the people you interact with somehow invalidates both the existence of individual racists and the influence of institutionalized Racism as societal evils is absurd.

"Inb4 I know a black/brown guy who totally says racism is over so take my word...."

I am not intending to be patronizing when I say that you seriously need to read more and speak more to the people of color that have experiences which diverge greatly from your anecdotal observations.

The nature of Trek is one of human curiosity and desire to learn. Not slavish devotion to convenient notions.

That is to say I'm not disagreeing with your point otherwise, but I am disagreeing with the idea that anecdotes are any more valuable because of who's telling you them. Learning how others live is desirable for building empathy and expanding your personal knowledge but it's not a replacement for the actual empirical inquiry and evidence policy/legislation (and thus your own political views and intentions, in an ideal world) should be based on even if the people telling you about their lives are genuinely victims of injustice. This is also why the entire field of pretend sciences or grievance studies, or victimhood politics, or whatever you want to call them are to be ignored as they're mostly just anecdotes and conjecture that cannot be falsified and anything you cannot falsify is not a true theory it's just dogma.
