Star Trek Discovery Premiere

After a long wait, Star Trek Discovery, Season 3, premiered today. With mounting anticipation, I turned on my TV to see how the Coronavirus would affect the third millennium.

Instead of mask wearing characters, I was welcomed by a Star Trek mission, with shades of Black Panther and Star Wars. As I witnessed the introduction of a character of a “copy” of Hans Solo, in a ship not unlike a more high tech model of the Millenium Falcon, I was in familiar territory for a Star Wars fan. Even the smuggler’s furry friend, reminded of Hans Solo’s associate Chewbacca, but much smaller. Let’s see, a smuggler being pursued? I wonder if George Lucas feels robbed?

While, I have followed Star Trek since my younger days, watching Captain James Kirk and Mr. Spock explore the universe, I don’t like when their universe intrudes into that of the “Empire.” I hope that I won’t hear Darth Vader saying that he is the “father” of anyone in the Discovery crew.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy almost anything Star Trek, but this series seems to be hitching itself to another “Galaxy, far, far away.”

Some might call me a Conservative others a Moderate. My core beliefs: 1) Christian 2) Republican 3) Pro First and Second Amendments 4) Our country is not racist, neither are most people. Unfortunately, there is hate and distrust among individuals of all colors. New laws, violent protests, and arguing will not solve anything. We must change the heart. 5) Legalize marijuana. There are those who have no other alternative to relieve pain, especially among our disabled, ill, and disabled Veterans. 6) Jesus Christ will return sooner than we expect. (Just my belief)
