Huh...I'm sure that's been around for a couple of months...I wonder why it blew up again all of a sudden.

The "you're wrong" one? Yeah. The one with all the questions is new.

Aron Eisenberg, who played Nog from the Star Trek spin-off "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," has died, his widow said. He was 50.

So humans are back to being xenophobic racists in Picard.

I am glad that we are dealing with Romulans though. They are my favorite ST villains.

Let's face it; they always have been in one way or another all throughout ST.

It was the entire plot of Undiscovered Country.

It's all about 'civility' bro'. Be racist & xenophobic the RIGHT way.

I think TNG is actually a great example of the kind of "woke" obliviousness where window dressing good intentions often end up just [expletive] all over the people you're supposedly treating as equals. For all the way the characters act and talk like they're this enlightened utopia people, they pretty much treat every alien race like pigeonholed curiosities at best, and out and out savages at the worst. It IS definitely automatically edgelord-y to say something, like, "Q was right," but...well, Q kinda WAS right, especially in the last episode. The human-dominated Federation is largely full of horsefeathers because the humans are full of horsefeathers. I really like how Picard feels like a very natural extension of how that has blown up in their faces.

Yes, but Bones went to Ole Miss, so it's expected that he'd be racist, right?

Spoiler: show


The show is pretty good so far, but has a very different feel and tone from Star Trek: TNG. The cursing in episode 2 is pretty jarring lol.

Oh hell yes...

CBS has given a series order to Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, a brand new series that will be set aboard the original U.S.S. Enterprise and follow the adventures of Captain Pike, Spock, and Number One as they explore the galaxy. Anson Mount, Ethan Peck, and Rebecca Romijn, who brought the characters to life on the second season of Star Trek: Discovery, will reprise their roles.
