People get real worked up about Star Trek don’t they. I’ve never been deeply invested in the lore of this franchise, so I inevitably shake my head at people’s reactions to something I find really entertaining. Then I remember the things I’ve written about Star Wars in the past few months and realise I don’t have much of a leg to stand on judging hard core fans.
There has been a lot of negative coverage of Star Trek: Discovery. Most common amongst the complaints I’ve read seem to focus on the fact that it doesn’t feel like “Star Trek”. I would scoff at this, but I do actually see where this is coming from. I have seen a fair bit of the Next Generation, and Discovery feels a lot more action packed than that series ever did.
