Star Trek: Discovery: a lot of fans on both sides (for or against) tend to ignore the other sides arguments. In my mind there is many things not working for Discovery, otherwise the fan base would not be divided. If it were truly a resounding success Trek fans would be united in singing its praises, which is definitely not happening...much to my despair. I want Discovery to be good and successful more than anything...
To my fellow Star Trek fans: Trek taught us to accept our differences and work together towards a positive vision for the future. Let’s respect our differences. If you like or don’t like Discovery that’s just fine. But remember to be respectful to those who do not share in your opinion. Stop hating on one another, respect each other’s opinion. You may not agree with it nor should you have to but be accepting in the fact others may not like what you like.
Let’s all do better.

After watching the ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ third season trailer I cannot help but theorize the writers/executive producers stole Gene Roddenberry‘s plot for ‘Andromeda’ and are using it for ‘Discovery’. Much like they “borrowed” the tardigrade from that video game ‘Tardigrades’ in season one but then quickly threw that out when they got sued or had to settle (not sure which). Maybe I’m wrong but I’m thinking that ‘Discovery’ will be tasked with rebuilding the Federation when they arrive 1000 years after the events in the season 2 finale. Which is essentially the plot of Gene Roddenberry’s proposed series ‘Andromeda’, which was turned into a tv series starring Kevin Sorbo and produced by Gene’s widow Majel Barrett Roddenberry in the early 2000’s.
If I am right then they need to get some new writers/producers on this show who can create something of their own. Stop lifting ideas and concepts from others and trying to pass them off as new and original. Season one had the tardigrades. Season two had the Enterprise, Spock, Captain Pike, Number One. Now maybe season 3 has the plot line from ‘Andromeda’ which was one surviving Commonwealth ship tasked with rebuilding the Commonwealth. If season 3 has the ‘Discovery’ having to rebuild the Federation then yes they (the writers/executives) stole ANOTHER plot because they have no clue and should not be making a show called ‘Star Trek’.
They need to do better and true fans should expect better.

|I had the pleasure of meeting Anson Mount at the Calgary Expo in April 2019. He does make an excellent 'Captain Pike'.|
|Season 3 trailer that dropped at NYCC: Meh. Still not hopeful.|
|Hopefully 'Star Trek: Picard' will bring the franchise back to its glory days.|
