Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I am not even going to bother with this season. Last season did my head in anyway for various reasons and they said they are doubling down on the gayness this season which is just going to make it even more in your face annoying. Until they get rid of stupid Tilly it is never going to feel like Star Trek.

‘The gayness"...

Some people had the same reaction when Kirk and Uhura kissed in ST;TOS.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Awww. I think Tilly is great.

I can't wait for the season to start.

Lower Decks turned out to be the best Trek I've seen in a long time. Honouring canon so much better than anything else.

I don't believe they are doubling down on anything. People just need to relax and enjoy, not focus on trivial things and being offended by different races and cultures. Its so old fashioned and outdated.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Featuring a game character or characters isn't what I'd call ramming it down your throat.

I assume you mean Gay, not Game.

For me, the issue is not gay characters as such.
What bugs me is the way they are so often unrealistically "forced" into shows.

Its like every show now requires at least one obligitory gay lead character, and some try to make as much fuss about it as they can.
Some shows do it really well, so it just seems naturally part of the show, and you dont give it a second thought - thats how it should be.
Others (Batwoman & Supergirl spring to mind) just seem hell bent of ramming into the show every week, like one of those loud American preachers.

I must admit, I didnt think Discovery actually over did it that much.

Oh and +1 here for being a fan of Tilly.

(and a Fan of Lower Decks)

I thought Tilly was great and also loved last season.

Probably not the turn of phrase I would have used.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Whilst I don't agree with him, I think I know the point he's trying to make. Season 3 is introducing 2/3 new characters who fit into LGBTQ+. I'm just looking forward to seeing what they do with the story being in the future.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

I thought the first episode was great. The future seems really screwed up.

Great episode. I'm sure someone will moan about 2 black leads and the various green and blue characters 😂

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Not me, I am not watching it. It doesn't feel like Star Trek. You have got a senior staff which is just a bunch of wet nellys and you wouldn't think have been to Starfleet Academy. The universe seems to revolve around one person every episode has to have a gay drama of the week. It isn't Star Trek and that is why when Pike & co came into it it felt like a breath of fresh air and revitalised the series. It will be interesting to see if ratings fall this season and the series gets cancelled like the DV series.
