    The last thing we need is another Star Trek show, especially one featuring Jean Luc Picard, a very boring character from the very boring Next Generation show.

    And I've read that the show is going to be using veiled anti-Trump messages. How wonderful. (sarcasm alert)

    Kirk-Spock-McCoy made the first show interesting. After that, all characters in Star Trek were bland and uninteresting, except perhaps Data.

    I liked Picard. Very gentlemanly. However....I am thoroughly tired of movies and shows bashing Trump. Sick of it. Even my husband, who is a die hard democrat, said he is sick of it. The man is POTUS. Deal with it and stfu, he says. :)

    You do realize that a lot of Star Trek was allegory criticizing current events in America, right?

    For instance, the TOS episode, "Let that be your last battlefield" mocked the pure stupidity of racism by presenting us with a pair of two-toned aliens, who hated each other because they were colored on opposite sides of their faces.

    I forget the title of the episode, but there was also one about War Veterans who were enhanced to be super soldiers, but then exiled because they couldn't work their way back into society. A metaphor about how we've treated Vietnam Vets.

    So are you just noticing that this is happening now?

    Wow...a science fiction show with a white male character in the lead? In 2020? I am sure they will write a gay Asian son into the script...or just make Picard a faggot with a black husband.
