  • Is The Animated Comedy Series ‘Lower Decks’ A Good Idea For Star Trek?

    It seems like CBS TV studios president David Stapf wasn’t joking when he said, “There should be Star Trek something on all the time”. In the same year Short Treks and the as-of-yet untitled Picard show were announced, and rumours of a Section 31 show surfaced, we now have...
  • Hopes, Predictions and Questions for Picard’s Return to Star Trek

    Captain Jean-Luc Picard’s epic adventure across the galaxy came to an end 16 years ago with the release of Star Trek: Nemesis, one of my least favourite Star Trek films. Based on its own merits the film’s not actually all that bad (okay, it is pretty rubbish) but it’s regarded as...
  • Casting Captain Pike for Star Trek: Discovery Season 2

    The Enterprise is back! Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing for Discovery is whole different conversation (that I touch on in this previous article) but The Enterprise brings with it a huge bunch of questions. How big of a role will the ship play in the...
  • Hopes for Star Trek Discovery Season 2

  • I Read The Star Trek Discovery Prequel Novel (So You Don’t Have To)

    Spoilers for episodes 1-5 of Star Trek Discovery and the prequel novel ‘Desperate Hours’. The past few weeks have been a busy and tumultuous time in the Star Trek fandom. Discovery has finally aired and is just as controversial as we all guessed it would be. I’m enjoying the...
  • Hopes for Star Trek Discovery

    We are now just a few days away from Star Trek returning to its true home of television with Star Trek Discovery which strikes that balance of eager anticipation and trepidation within fans of the franchise. Personally, I would have preferred a series set even further in the future,...
  • Is it a mistake for Star Trek Discovery to be a prequel?

    Production on Star Trek Discovery is in full swing and, while there has been no confirmed release date, the show will debut later this year. Science fiction on television and just television in general has changed dramatically since the last Star Trek show, Enterprise, was cancelled in 2005 with...
