Nah it's not fair to play the tumblr card on Star Trek

It doesn't even make sense. We already had a lady captain and she was great, and the entire point and premise is trying to maintain peace between races. They aren't changing shit and even if they're were it's not like they're including 28 made up genders or pretending everything is rape.

Following some ensign around in that era just sounds like shit to me. Why the hell would I want to watch some ensign scrubbing out warp plasma conduits? It worked ok as a concept for some one-ofs on other series, but as a whole show that sounds awful. And while they can only do warp 2-3? And when they have to make Klingons seem scary again? Pfffffftttttttt

Oh my god. This is the best news I've ever heard. Somebody seriously goes by the name "Awkwafina". Every day brings more and more evidence that Idiocracy was accurate. There is literally somebody trying to brand themselves as a misspelled bottle of water! Holy shit!

Also that won't get made. Rumors have been around for years. But here's the real nail. Ghostbusters didn't make money so, knowing studio heads, they'd rather never make anything like it ever again, than admit they fucked up a potentially good concept and try to rework it. And of course with ghostbusters they get a "bonus". They can blame the films failure on misogyny instead of themselves.

Star Trek has always been pretty progressive in nature because of the source material almost demanding it.

I agree with following someone who isn't a bridge officer. Part of the fun of Star Trek is being present for the top level of the ship.

I am definitely. I would really love to see a new ST series set several hundred years after the Voyager series.

God yes

Following around that future star fleet branch in charge of maintaining the time stream in voyager would be absolutely nuts!

Shut up and take my money!

Also the the books that pick up after voyager returned to earth and took out the Borg queen are very good

You can kinda tell if you have seen all the trek TV series, bust just as a reminder voyager returned right when the dominion war started.

Then, offscreen- they didn't even get to throw a huge celebration. They were sent right back to war. fucking metal! Put that shit in a show!

And then like 10ish years later the Star Trek:Destiny book trilogy covers a time when the Borg have declared total war against humanity. Assimilation time is over. They are just straight killing people. Make a show of that! Of course books aren't cannon. But.....

How hype is this shit?

All that material and you're going to follow an ensign? In a prequel era? Fuck you.

Oh and while I'm at it,

I just finished a full rewatch of TNG

TNG has the best episodes of any trek TV series, but in a truely objective sense, it is shit on average.

Voyager is definitely better. It's not even close. Voyager is great from seasons 4 onward, and actually just nuts once it becomes the doctor and seven show. TNG is mediocrity peddled with intense shit and then very high peaks. Seriously rewatch it and take an average. I dare you. This was in the final season of TNG and I could not make up something dumber. I'd rather watch the doctor fight for hologram rights 100 times than see this again.

Actual summary of "Sub Rosa" !
