TBH if they can put a little of good Trek into a kids show, I think that could make for a good kids show.

It's the meme about mom thinking the knock-off brand is the same as the true brand.  The last girl is the knock-off Minuet https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Minuet

There is nothing deep about it.  Just the joy of recognizing the meme format and the reference.  Which is bliss.

https://trekmovie.com/2021/03/14/grudge-the-cat-from-star-trek-discovery-is-getting-her-own-book/

Quote
Grudge is a “Queen,” and she knows it. Everyone—her so-called owner, Cleveland “Book” Booker, Michael Burnham, Ryn, Zareh, and Tilly—bows down to her, some more willingly than others. And nothing, not extended periods in space, not ship-rattling attacks from enemies, rattles her. Ever. She’s a cool kitty with a ’tude. We call it “Cattitude.”

As a cat, Grudge, has a particular take on the universe, her seeming indifference masking a wit as sharp as her claws.

Discovery is the worst thing to happen to Star Trek.

Yes, worse than the worst episodes that Enterprise and Voyager had to offer!  Worse than TNG Sub Rosa!

I actually wonder if Sub Rosa is the only episode of Trek the Discovery writers have actually seen, because every single fucking series so far has had people with ghosts only they can see, two of the series ghosts of people they want to fuck, the other more ambiguous on 'secret bestest teenage friend'

I stayed up with some whiskey last night and watched JJ Abrams’ Star Trek for the second or third time, and finally actually enjoy the heck out of it. There are still a few things I am not fond of, like a Romulan dump truck/crane from the future being able to take out federation warships, and Spock’s casual diddling of the timeline (“whelp, 6 billion Vulcans ded, guess I’ll give Scotty his trans-warp transporter equation a couple decades early”), but I can get in on the fun and enjoy the actors playing with the legendary roles. I like Chris Pike better as Kirk than Shatner, as this version is not afraid to fail, and still manages to have a brash, cocky attitude.

The folks behind What We Left Behind are at it again, this time with Voyager. The coffee cup got me to help fund it.

If it’s a 90minute documentary focused solely on Brad Dourifs character, I am 100% on board.

I remember not being able to watch Voyager past the first scorpion episode, because I guess the network here didnt syndicate it yet or it might even not have been made yet im not sure.

Keiko is absolutely O’Brien’s beard.  Everyone on that station knows it and doesn’t care, not when there’s people like Riker roaming the galaxy.

I just want something half decent to watch  :(

the international streaming services aren't even bidding against each other for broadcast rights to nu-trek stuff any more, as there's so little interest after discovery and picard.
I really find it hard to believe thats what cbs want with what was - even quite recently! - a franchise that you could still get a decent selling movie out of.

Last week’s big news that Paramount Pictures had put a Star Trek movie on the calendar for the summer of 2023 has fans buzzing and wondering if it will be connected to all the Star Trek TV happening on Paramount+. Now the man in charge of all those TV shows is weighing in on the new reality of modern franchises.

Quote
“I think vertical alignment has made it so that it’s impossible not to accept the reality that the line between movies and television is gone. It doesn’t mean that you can’t have a feature that is separate from television. But if they aren’t connected in some way, then you’re basically running two universes parallel as opposed to interconnected, and I think that those messages could potentially cancel each other out.”

Alex Kurtzman trash is now canon  :yuck :yuck :yuck

That was always going to be the case, hence why so many nerds including me got butthurt.

At least the Kurtzman movies you could shunt off into the Kelvin timeline and throw that in the bin, but short of some timey-wimey bullshit Discovery and especially Picard are always going to be with us.

Stuff I hate in Star Trek:

1) Person flying the ship becomes chief engineer.
2) Guy thrown off ship becomes new captain after picking a fight with the old captain.
3) Captain Janeway gets advice from hologram.
