>Warp field is technobabble'd by anomaly
>Anomaly sends ship to a distant part of the galaxy (or another galaxy even?)

So its just voyager 2.0 but don't make it fucking shit. Also no fucking crew fighting each-other over stupid shit fake boring drama, the all get along and form a makeshift command structure.

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?

Sowing such division would disqualify us for federation membership.
unless you go by TOS era where the USSR was a separate state, so much for the federation being communist lololololol

>religion is totally 100% bad and irreemable with no redeeming charachterstics of any kind what so ever.
>There is no discussion fo the possible sociological benefits of religion
In terms of organised religion he's not wrong, assuming you have a population that's good enough at critical thinking to not simply adopt something else as a pseudo-religion (see: how people treat certain brands of extreme politics nowadays). The sociological benefits you gain from it can be replicated by having a population able to come up with its own morality which, assuming Trek levels of education, is pretty easily achievable.
>Not just DS9 with all the Bajoran mumbojumbo, but TOS and Voy managed it, and even TNG did it.
DS9 is too sympathetic to religion, and TNG has the episode where Picard accidentally becomes a god and he outright says that not having a religion is a cultural achievement. I'm not sure what TOS episode I'd say was nuanced in that regard though there are enjoyable episodes like the Greek gods turning out to be aliens which does explore the idea of religion having a basis in fact.

>Like, the episode where Kelly inadvertently starts being worshipped as a god and religion is portrayed simply as some Gibbonsesque interpretation of Medieval Catholicism, Borgia Popes, Inquisition and all. And then at the end of the episode they just say religion is a temporary hinderance every society goes through.
We still have religious violence and oppression in almost every country developed or otherwise. It's pretty fair to say organised religion has been and continues to be a hindrance.

Organised religion is generally a negative. Non-organised religion is mostly just a curiosity or personal indulgence.

>In terms of organised religion he's not wrong

I dissagree, take Europe for example, the impact medieval Catholicism had on the development of the university system, archetecture, the Parisian Inquisition's clamping down on overtly materialistic readings of Aristotle leading to the development 'modern science' urbanism are all well and good, and then you have various unique Christian theological concerns manifesting into Synods that were rather succesful at constraining violence amongst the various princes. Most importantly I point out the development of Thomistic-Personalism that would later translate into the secular concept of individual rights.

Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of negatives, but there are also plenty of benefits (and some benefits which we have today in the west which we don't see in other societies in the world simply because they did not go through the Christian experience).

Like, Seth could have his inquisitions at the like, but also perhaps show some benefits i.e. Kelly being percieved as a healing goddess could have lead to the development of a society that culturally percieves medicine and altruism as something very important.

>DS9 is too sympathetic to religion

I would say DS9 is spot on when it comes to an honest portrayal of religion. Leaving aside whether the Prophets are actual gods or just hyper evolved aliens, you see the importance of the Bajoran religion in maintaining a stable culture and social cohesion in the aftermath of the occupation, and the Kais seem to benormal people, rather than charicatures.

On the other hand you see Bajoran religion tending towards extreme racism and religious terrorism in some cases, and they also have their own heretics that are punished.

This is why I like DS9, it doesn't flip to either extreme.

>TNG has the episode where Picard accidentally becomes a god and he outright says that not having a religion is a cultural achievement.

True (but I thought that was more to do with the ramifications of breaking the Prime Directive), but you also have the episode with the clone of Kahless where he goes very William Jamesesque and goes on about the importance of Kahless' message for Klingon society even if he isn't really the return of Kahless.

>I'm not sure what TOS episode I'd say was nuanced in that regard though there are enjoyable episodes like the Greek gods turning out to be aliens which does explore the idea of religion having a basis in fact.

Yeah, and while the message does seem to state the need for society to grow up, Spock also points out the good aspects of Greek religion.

But TOS does seem to be a bit weird, a good few episodes feel more like something out of Lovecraft than Asimov.

>We still have religious violence and oppression in almost every country developed or otherwise. It's pretty fair to say organised religion has been and continues to be a hindrance.

We also still have plenty of violence surrounding liberal democracy, that doesn't mean that liberal democracy isn't an inherently flawed concept of a hinderance in itself.

Happy Arbour Day.

That's a pretty understandable way to approach both it and BSG really. Don't treat them as SF but as drama with spaceships.

>Paramount surprised Star Trek fans when they announced Noah Hawley would write and direct a new movie set in the iconic science fiction universe. This came after plans for a fourth Star Trek with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto to be directed by S.J. Clarkson fell through. Quentin Tarantino also expressed interest in making a Star Trek movie, but Hawley has the gig for now.
>Hawley was on a Television Critics Association panel for the fourth season of Fargo, coming to FX April 19. After the panel, he spoke with reporters further and addressed his Star Trek movie.
>Noah Hawley doesn’t want to make Star Trek an action movie
>When J.J. Abrams rebooted Star Trek in 2009, it opened with a massive space battle and kept the pace up throughout. His sequel and Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond continued Star Trek as summer tentpole movies full of action and special effects. Hawley says he intends to get back to the original essence of Gene Roddenberry’s show.
>“Star Trek is such a special story about exploration and empathy and diversity and humanity at its best and creative problem solving,” Hawley said. “It was never designed in its origins as an action series. It was always about humanity having to fit into the universe and solve problems through diplomacy and outsmarting their opponents. So I’m excited to get back to that.”

>Quark is about to make an extraordinary deal, when he finds himself in the middle of a diplomatic crisis. Grand Nagus Zek is refusing to sell one of the lost Orbs of the Prophets back to Bajor. In response, the Bajoran government cuts off all diplomatic ties with the Ferengi and outlaws all Ferengi businesses within its borders. Quark first loses his bar, and then is subsequently imprisoned. But he finds himself to be the only one who can prevent a war between his people and Bajor.

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
