The 1990s were the Golden Age of Star Trek. Three different series and a slew of movies had all the Trekkies on top of the world. But, not to be too greedy about it, I think we could have had a lot more. Here’s what I would have added and amended about Star Trek in the 90s.
…About Money in Star Trek
What would it be like living in the world of Star Trek where you don’t have to earn money to live? Would it really be a world without despair?
…About Drugs in Star Trek
You may think Star Trek has always taken a hard line against drugs of any kind, but the truth isn’t that simple.
…About Comedy in Star Trek
“Lower Decks” is the first legitimate Star Trek comedy; but comedy has always been part of Star Trek.
…About Representation in Star Trek
The best thing Star Trek can do to fight discrimination is the same thing it’s always done.
…About the Star Trek Genre
With the addition of “Star Trek Discovery” and “Star Trek Picard” to the franchise, I talk about what really makes a series “Star Trek”.
