    Strange Old Worlds

    Star Trek: Discovery launched the Trek universe into a bold new era of television. It has since been joined by Star Trek: Picard, with multiple further series planned. Later this year, we can expect to see the first season of the new comedy animated series, Star Trek: Lower Decks, and hopefully the far-future-set third season of Discovery (COVID delays to post-production notwithstanding). Live action filming has been put on hold for a time due to the pandemic, but once production begins again, we can look forward to a second season of Picard, plus the new Captain Pike-centred series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. In time, we can also expect another new animated series, as-yet-unnamed and aimed at kids, and potentially a live action Section 31 series.

    What Star Trek means to me in 2020

    Today, Star Trek on CBS All Access is having a day of donations where every use of the #StarTrekUnitedGives equals $1 that will be donated to the Black Lives Matter movement. It's one of the many ways that Trek always steps up.

    Why Star Trek's new series is such a big deal

    Why Star Trek's new series is such a big deal

    Ever since seeing Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels) step up as Captain Pike on the second season of Star Trek: Discovery, fans have been petitioning for his own spin-off series. Pike is a character little seen in Star Trek besides his appearance in the original pilot, "The Cage," filmed for Star Trek which wasn't even aired on television until 1988. Before Discovery, we actually knew more about Pike from Bruce Greenwood's portrayal alongside Chris Pine's Kirk in Star Trek and Star Trek: Into Darkness. So why did fans want more Pike that badly?

    Ranking the Science Fiction Merits of the Original Series Star Trek Movies

    Ranking the Science Fiction Merits of the Original Series Star Trek Movies

    What does science fiction merit mean. How about an idea that makes you think and helps bring sense to the world we live in. Star Trek qualifies on many counts so here’s my TOS movie rankings from six to one.

    Review of 'Star Trek: Discovery 2'

    Review of 'Star Trek: Discovery 2'

    I endeavored in my reviews of Star Trek: Picard and the first season of Discovery to keep them free of specific spoilers. But it is not possible to review the tour de force that is the second season of Discovery without them, so expect plenty of spoilers in what follows.

    Review of 'Star Trek: Discovery 1'

    Review of 'Star Trek: Discovery 1'

    One of my favorite lines in any movie or television show is Jake Houseman (played by the inimitable Jerry Orbach) lamely apologizing to Johnny in Dirty Dancing -- "when I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong". That's what I have to say about not watching Star Trek: Discovery until the past few days. I wasn't in the mood for another Star Trek series, I didn't like paying for or even just watching yet another streaming service. But I was wrong.

    Five characters for Discovery season three

    Five characters for Discovery season three

    The third season of Star Trek: Discovery is due to hit sometime this year, and promises some big changes for the core characters. Having spent the first two seasons in the pre-Original Series 23rd century, the next season takes place in 3187, far further into the future than any of Star Trek's previous main settings.
