Kind of looking forward to it but with some trepidation. Discovery dissolved into a cesspool of sex-romps and raging emotions (from someone raised on Vulcan!) after remaking Klingons into Nosferatu vampire looking creatures. Then, at the end of Picard’s 1st season they hinted that Seven of Nine is now a lesbian. This goes against Star Trek Canon where she married Cmdr. Chakotay. Seems that Paramount is more interested in catering to the woke crowd than traditional ST fans.
I have to agree. I definitely saw the “wokeness” in the series, especially in the 2nd season. Even the mild use of profanity was a surprise. Picard using profanity was a shock.
Good news everyone love this show way better Picard can’t wait to watch it on dvd new season.
cannot wait to not watch it
