Star Trek has always pushed a political agenda and was always left of center.Patrick Stewart stated in an interview that he would only do the show if it subverted his character (captain Picard) and focused on politics. The writers of Discovery admitted they use the franchise as a political platform.
The actors and show runners have run it into the ground.
Gene Roddenberry said that he portrayed a future he hoped for, not one that was likely to be.
Star Trek TNG was a wildly leftist show.
I haven't watched "Picard" - but Stewart is a homosexual supremacist, so I imagine there are radical themes.
I did watch "Discovery" and found it far less political than TNG.
