I just want to say VERY CLEARLY that the message of the so-called "Black Lives Matter" movement is completely anathema to the ideals of Star Trek. Star Trek never advocated putting one group on a pedestal over all others, or taking out your grandfather's grudges on his enemies' grandchildren. This is a divisive movement, it's almost stuck living in the 60's when black people weren't one of the most privileged groups in the United States, and a harmonious multicultural society could have already been achieved if not for this divisive, race-baiting, and quite frankly evil group. Police brutality in the modern day is something we ALL enjoy. If BLM cared about social change and didn't want a future of race wars and segregation, they shouldn't have made it race-blind and SHOULD ABSOLUTELY NOT HAVE ignored cases like Tony Timpa, where a white man was killed in his own home in the exact same manner as George Floyd. Because he wasn't black, BLM infers he didn't matter by their silence. Thus, their goal is not justice, through the elevation of one community over another. It's about petty revenge, for something that happened long before any Hue-Mon living today was born. It's bullshit. No one, not black, not white, not Andorian, not even a fucking BAJORAN deserves to be punished for their ancestors crimes.

Star Trek dreamed of a future where people didn't form immediate opinions on you based on appearance., but where the content of your character was what mattered. It would not be a stretch of the imagination to say that Martin Luther King and Gene Roddenberry were on the same page. They were. And if you are a true star trek fan, and not some wannabe, I probably won't have to win you over, you'll already be like me, stuck in the uncomfortable position of neutrality between two screeching mobs of the most entitled generation ever born. But I write this now for those who know in their hearts that this movement is pushing society backwards, but are too afraid to admit it to yourselves. This is a movement of oppression hidden in the skin of a movement of justice and equality.

I've seen too many people getting their lives ruined over social media, too many people getting killed or maimed in these riots (and then not being reported on because it was a black person killed by another black person), too much division and destruction. I'm personally very strongly against it, but I dare not say a word outside of the anonymous internet because I've seen what happens to those who do. Same shit that happened to those that spoke out against the Nazis. Same shit as those who spoke out against communism during the CCP cultural revolution. I want to point out, yes indeed, black lives DO matter but only as a subset of ALL LIVES. This movement has run its course, and if you can still stomach the dishonor of supporting it, you are not in favor of actual equality. We are never making a United Federation of Planets if we can't get over simple shit like this, guys.

Star Trek might be dead, but it's lit a fire inside me that will never die. Can you say the same? Or will you fall for divisive propaganda and summon a world where people of different shades of beige can't share the same society? Being blind to race is better that focusing on it. It doesn't matter. If you think it matters, you need to get over that shit, it's holding you back. People should respect other cultures, but this movement has become about destroying history and toppling statues, barely any different from ISIS. There's no moral high ground to speak out against defacing some mural of Floyd when you just fucking smashed a statue of Thomas Jefferson. This movement has blown any goodwill it had in my heart over the past few weeks, and if it didn't do the same to you, I'd suggest time away from social media combined with quiet reflections of your values. Do you really want to give support to the Mirror Universe's version of the Ku Klux Klan? The only difference I see is skin color. And to me, because I believe in the message of Star Trek, that is a basically meaningless attribute.

So, if you disagree with me, I welcome that. Let's hear what you have to say. The biggest problem with the current state of affairs is that those who preach such a love for diversity of culture will allow no diversity of opinion. Sorr…

Star Trek: Lower Decks is the first animated series to join the expanding Star Trek franchise on CBS All Access, which includes hit original series Star Trek: Picard; Star Trek: Discovery, returning with season three later this year; the recently announced

>U.S.S. Enterprise set series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

>development of a Section 31-based series with Michelle Yeoh.

>A CG-animated Star Trek series aimed at younger audiences is also in the works for Nickelodeon.

Maybe since there will be SIX different Trek shows airing at the same time at least one of them will be decent. I do like Jerry O' Connell though. Sliders was great for a while there. Shame what it turned into at the end.

>he was popular and bajorans weren't

Yeah no shit, pretty much all Bajorans on the show are terrible people. Even Kira (who were are supposed to like because she's a main character) is insufferable until she goes through an arc where she's forced to work with people from other cultures and finally learns that you don't need to be a cunt in order to get ahead in life (or something to that effect).

The only likable Bajoran I can think of is that old guy who gave Ro Laren some hasperat and advice. But I bet that off-screen even that guy beats his wife in front of the kids because she didn't make the hasperat spicy enough.

Kira starts as a cunt and learns quite a few lessons. I enjoyed watching it and am a fan of the character but because she overcomes being horrible rather than because she's just nice. Dukat slowly did descend into being a tosspot in almost a direct contrast to her, but he had so much smarm that he would have had to go a long way. I think if they'd kept the existing pace he might have been annoying by about season 11 or 12 but they didn't have that time so they just made him go mad and called it a day. In fairness he's had a pretty wild ride and going mad isn't completely unbelievable but it's definitely the "make the best of the situation we got ourselves into" cop out and not superb writing.

He spent 6 seasons ignoring vital lessons and doubling down. Losing Ziyal could have also been the moment where it finally came to roost and they could have turned him into a tragic character, I think it's harder to imagine the Cardies rallying around such a contraversial figure the way they did Damar. Also for all his smarm I can't imagine Dukat laughing and saying "They'll just make another copy of him, you know. You should've killed me. There's only one Dukat".

There were a couple of cool bajorans and they all die heroically. Though chill gardening dude's corpse ends up being another stepping stone for Kai Hilary.

Because Dukat wouldn't laugh at a pointless death, regardless of if they could be cloned.

Never been a big trekkie but saw some TOS on cable the other day and decided to start watching TNG. Damn this is a good show! Anything I should keep in mind while watching it (spoiler free)? Just finished season 1, seems like they don't make television like this any more. Most episodes have a good story, beautiful women, and strong characters, feels like they don't make television like this anymore. It's the perfect show to get stoned and watch while programming.

I tried watching some DS9 but it was boring as fuck compared to big dick Picard and pussy eating king Riker hitting backwall across the galaxy.

RIP Chief Security Officer Tasha Yar

archer is basically sam beckett but in space because bakula is incapable of acting as any other character, t'pol is just sexy vulcan unga, trip was kinda neat because he was basically a redneck in space, reed... I don't know what reed did. Hoshi had that language did but I don't think they ever did anything with her, and mayweather might as well not existed at all. phlox was only interesting because he's a psychopath.

Nah, see I think one of the things a lot of people miss about ENT is that it does have character development, what I really like is that the general state of the crew and ship is always a microcosm of the rest of the human race weathering adversary and finding it's feet in the galaxy at the same time. But then they usually are the spear tip of that.

Also TNG probably had the least obvious character development but it was there. There was less and it was subtle and over 7 years but it happened. I mean aside from shut up Mary Sue who was obvious. Many of the characters became more nuanced without losing their defining characterists. It wasn't really "about characters" though as much as using them to explore ideas. I think they had big plans for Pulaski and she had a defined and obvious arc but it only half finished because she got shitcanned when ginger MILF came back.

Voyager as with its quality was inconsistent. Some characters changed some seemed he same chumps 7 years later.

But if you want to grade the series by character development go to DS9 or go home. Considering its ensemble felt broader than most that they all also changed more says a lot.

TNG is not a show about the characters, it's a science fiction show about the high concept of the week where the characters exist just explore that concept. The episodes that forget this and go be a character drama are almost universally the worst ones too. What you're describing is something like ENT S3, nuBSG or the current nuTrek shows which are character drama pretending to be science fiction: that's not Trek and if you want a character drama (sometimes I do too) there are far better options available.

After a recent rewatch:
Gunsmoke in space, but better.
Better acting and budgets but all of the characters are constantly slightly drunk or high. Roddenberry's weird fetishes creep into the writing.
Mostly shit but the campness makes it watchable.

2 is really hit and miss though, sometimes it's outstanding TV and sometimes it's just painful. It has the really fun Matter of Honour which contains maximum Riker and then straight afterwards there's "measure of a man" but it also does sometimes go wide of the mark like the one where Troi gets pregante with a creepy non consensual alien.

S1&2 have some of my favorite star trek episodes. I don't know what happened in S3 but the stories just didn't have the same excitement. I love the trio of Kirk, Spock, and Mcoy - more than any crew that came after, but that isn't enough to hold my interest alone. RIP.

I guess it would be more truthful to say I watch TNG-VOY yearly with pickup eps of TOS/TAS throughout the year and then ENT about 3 out of 5 watches.

The TOS movies I usually watch with the series but I don't get into the others during the TNG-VOY run often. I do the Chronology Project order for that one so it really breaks the series up and it is much easier to watch that way IMO. You've got TNG for the start of DS9 and DS9 for most of VOY. I always do ENT after VOY if I am going to watch it.

I've only seen the new films maybe twice each, 4-5 eps of Picard, and almost a season and a half of STD.

When I do it I usually burn through it fairly quickly. Might start out watching a couple of episodes here and there and then I get the itch or sometimes if I can't find anything else to watch I can always start it up until I settle on something and end up getting sucked in. Sometimes I will do a pretty good run and then stop entirely for a few months and pick it back up again rather than straight through.

I also work odd hours with almost all of my free time at night when there isn't much to do outdoors and I'll almost always have either music or a show playing whether I am sitting in the recliner relaxing and getting into it or having it on while I'm on the PC or doing chores or whatever. Its like the Grateful Dead of film/tv for me. Its got a little bit of everything and I can always count on it. Lot of great stuff, tons of good stuff, and almost none that are so bad you have to cut if off so its kind of one of my go to shows.

I definitely skip the credits and would say I skip the title theme about half the time.
