  • 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...
  • My Hopes for The Orville Season 2

    First seasons are always hard, particularly for a series trying to be two shows at once. I enjoyed the debut season of The Orville but I struggled with what the show actually was for most of its episodes. Is it a comedy or is it a drama? I’m still...

    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...

  • 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...
  • Star Trek Discovery Has Arrived

    I want to preface this by stating that I’m not a die hard Trekkie but someone who enjoys Star Trek, a lot. I’m not precious about the canon yet I’ve watched every TNG and DS9 episode multiple times and recently watched every series on their addition to Netflix. As...
