Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
NEW SERIES NOW STREAMING


[www.paramountplus.com]


I'm a huge fan of Anson Mount since Hell on Wheels.

He was great in Discovery as Captain Pike.

Mount has expressed a lot of enthusiasm and gratitude of fans' support for Worlds, and credits them for there being a standalone series.

So I'm looking forward to seeing this.

I've not been disappointed one bit by any of these new Trek series, and I expect Worlds to be a standout.

YLLMV.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I’ll give it a shot, but I found both Discovery and Picard unwatchable

Mount has a small part in a film from a few years back called Mr. Right starring Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick. This is a VERY funny film - Rockwell and Kendrick have GREAT chemistry - and is highly recommended.



It is what it is.

I enjoyed the season where Captain Pike was in with the crew of Discovery. Was bummed when the season ended, wanted to see more of the character. Was pleasantly surprised to see him back in this new series called Strange New Worlds - I enjoyed the first new episode.

Well, it does take place far in the future when all the dinosaurs are dead.

It was better than I expected. Not great.

But I hear the next few episodes are solid. (First 5 eps were distributed to reviewers.) I'll keep watching.

I've given up all hope.

I'm not paying for P+.

Star Trek has always been 'woke' in the original sense of the word, before the word as used today existed, before the left went insane and the right co-opted the term.

What the right calls 'woke' is simply unwatchably bad writing and character assassination. I remember reading about this in the 80s, it was called 'rape of character' where someone took an existing character and twisted him into something completely different.
