I do like DS9 a bit better (juuuust a bit), and I also find that the big epic "lotr in space" approach to storytelling in B5 while commendable also hurts the show rewatchability. On the other hand, I must also say that what Straczynski did with Londo and G'kar remains unmatched, not even the best character arcs in Star Trek come close.

Personally I like Garibaldi, mostly because that scene from the future where he's gunning down endless waves of shadows with dual mini-guns and laughing like a madman.. but I gotta admit some of the Garibaldi-involved storylines dragged ass.

One good thing about Garibaldi is that if you pay close attention to his hairline, you can not only figure out what season you're in, but roughly what episode in the season, just from his hair. That man is the atomic clock of balding.

From the top of r/movies today.

>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.

Into Darkness did decently for a very simple reason: Hope.

OG Trek ended on a bit of a whimper. Enterprise had been, as we say in my country, a prayer without end. Except it did have an end, and a premature one at that. Voyager before it had already had its fair share of bumps in the road, and is still widely regarded as one of the weaker Treks. Deep Space 9 was widely regarded as fucking fantastic, but also had more of a niche audience by virtue of its nature, and by being way ahead of its time.

So a reboot of the franchise didn't really sound bad to anyone. It had been going for a while, after all. The idea of using existing characters was iffy, but at the same time everyone already knew there was never going to come a direct show out of a movie. Shit just don't work like that anymore. And JJTrek was a decent action movie. It had a shitload of lazy references. It just kind of got the blood pumping, and that's not really a bad thing when it hasn't been flowing at all. And the whole move with saying "it's a parallel universe" was fairly decent.

Even if you didn't get much out of JJTrek, it looked like it might actually revive the franchise with broad appeal. And we were less jaded by reboots back then. So with that hope in their pockets, people went to see Into Darkness. And it was bad. It remains one of the worst movies I've ever seen. It has no entertainment value, its characters are shit, Benedict Cumbercunt is particularly shit. Even if you don't like chocolate ice cream getting shit instead still feels like an insult.

Into Darkness killed the JJTrek movie franchise singlehandedly. Trek fans were done giving it the benefit of the doubt, and regular audience members could just go back to their thousands of capes movies. Personally I didn't even see Beyond, either. Yeah, I've heard it's decent, but I don't care. I was only running on hope, and that hope is gone. Why should I watch a movie that's really only trying and failing to be Trek when I cold watch old Trek instead? Even if it does fail less than the previous one?

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…

"literally killing people"

Jesus christ. People blaming the whole transgender suicide rate on shit like that is so dumb. They have a high suicide rate largely because of the dysphoria itself. It remains high whether they transition or not.

People always saying it's not a mental illness, same people who supposedly wanna end the stigma of mental illness.
Just put 2 and 2 together. It's a mental illness that's nothing to be ashamed of nor is it invalidating of their transition.
It's not easy to be trans regardless of society's acceptance of it. That's just the unfortunate truth.

I hate this bitch y'all.
She is one of the most irresponsible and irrational Star Trek characters I have had the displeasure of having to listen to. Her actress is hams it up and goes way too over the top.
She makes horrible decisions, some of the worst decisions in all of Trek.
She was the one responsible for sending Worf and Dax alone together on a critical covert operation that ended in disaster. It was almost like she was trying to sabotage them. Oh and let's not forget her worst and most egregious sin; going on a suicide vendetta revenge mission while voluntarily carrying the unborn child of some of your closest and most trusted comrades!
I hate Major Kira so much. Thanks for letting me vent.

Star Trek broke barriers when it first premiered more than 50 years ago, inspiring people of all walks of life by championing cultural diversity, scientific advancement, and the exploration of new frontiers. Today, this legacy carries on through the Star Trek series on CBS All Access, where Starfleet and new characters alike take on exciting missions and explore uncharted areas of the universe while keeping true to the ideals of "Star Trek" that society needs now more than ever. Join us as we virtually bring together the casts and producers from Star Trek: Discovery, new animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks and Star Trek: Picard.

Dominic Patten, Deadline's senior editor, moderates the overall "Star Trek Universe" panels with an introduction and discussion with Secret Hideout executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin who give a glimpse of what's ahead in the ever-expanding franchise.

The cast of Star Trek: Discovery reprises their roles in a virtual table read of the season two finale "Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2."

Detmer), Oyin Oladejo (Lt. J.G. Owosekun), Patrick Kwok-Choon (Lt. Rhys), Ronnie Rowe Jr. (Lt. J.G. Bryce), Sara Mitich (Lt. Nilsson), and upcoming Start Trek: Strange New World stars Anson Mount (Captain Christopher Pike), Rebecca Romijn (Number One), and Ethan Peck (Spock), alongside Star Trek: Discovery executive producer and co-showrunner Michelle Paradise and executive producer Olatunde Osunsanmi, who also directed the season two finale.Act one of the table read will make its world premiere at Comic-Con@Home followed by a brief cast Q&A.

Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites), creator, showrunner, and executive producer of the upcoming animated comedy series Star Trek: Lower Decks, which premieres Thursday, August 6 on CBS All Access, will debut an exclusive extended first look from the premiere episode. McMahan also moderates a fun discussion with the Starfleet crew residing in the "lower decks" of the U.S.S. Cerritos, including "Ensign Beckett Mariner" voiced by Tawny Newsome, "Ensign Brad Boimler" voiced by Jack Quaid, "Ensign Tendi" voiced by Noël Wells, and "Ensign Rutherford" voiced by Eugene Cordero and the ship's bridge crew including "Captain Carol Freeman" voiced by Dawnn Lewis, "Commander Jack Ransom" voiced by Jerry O'Connell, "Lieutenant Shaxs" voiced by Fred Tatasciore, and "Doctor T'Ana: voiced by Gillian Vigman.

>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.

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.

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.

You're in a elevator alone with... I don't know someone important at CBS who can make things happen.

Whats your pitch for a new Star Trek series?

The USS Lee Harvey Oswald, crew of 12, plus passengers. Handjob girl is the ship's chippy little nursling, and her mom is Chief Engineer. The captain is Worf. Data is married to an AI starship, the Federation Junker Elite: Esmerelda III. But when Starfleet HQ is attacked, launching Worf's mission into Cardassian space, Data docks the 'relda inside the LHO, and he becomes the ship's DJ, and there are raves nightly, and everybody gets down, everybody gets busy, everybody gets moving. They all know what's up and they never stop. That's how it ends.

The investment banker dude comes across holosuites, and decides to bankroll a program based on the musician/druggie dude he was frozen with. The musician shows up to offer “creative input” before running off to do a show on Risa. The banker polishes out the dings the musician left in the program, brings it to a nice PG rating, and Vic is born.
