    Review of Short Treks: "Q&A": Here is my review of the new Short Treks episode "Q&A" that I managed to find a totally legal copy of earlier today. The always honest Spock will swear this is true. Sorry for the sarcasm, I neither like being excluded from Trek content, nor do I like this episode. Star Trek Short Treks episode guide and reviews

    Fresh new start or last resort? Discovery arrives 930 years in the future, in a world that seems to be in disarray. The trailer looks unexpectedly pleasant, without the customary visual overkill. Perhaps I will give the series another chance.

    New Picard Trailer From NYCC: Because of geoblocking (Thanks CBS, your policy sucks!) I can only slowly catch up with the news from NYCC. But here is my comment on the new Picard trailer, the arguably most important of the three ones that were released. New trailers for Star Trek: Picard, Discovery Season 3 and the Short Treks were posted on the occasion of New York Comic Con.

    Voyager Reviews: "Extreme Risk" and "In the Flesh": Here are two more updated reviews of Voyager's fifth season, "Extreme Risk" and "In the Flesh". Stardate not given: B'Elanna Torres secretly runs holodeck programs such as orbital skydiving with the safety protocols off. She is dispassionate about her duties and relationships but wouldn't talk to anyone about it. Meanwhile, the Malon try to get hold of Voyager's multispatial sensor probe but J...

    New Article: The Evolution of the Kazon Emblem: In another new article, we look at The Evolution of the Kazon Emblem, which could be seen in just a few episodes but in several permutations. The Kazon were featured as soon as in Star Trek Voyager's pilot episode. However, it would be a while before their logo, designed by Wendy Drapanas, appeared on screen in its final form. We can also find this final version printed in the Star Trek Encyclopedia (2nd edition). https://external.xx.fbcdn.net/safe_image.php?d=AQBG6LDLT87FUASD&w=130&h=130&url=http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/inconsistencies/kazon_emblem/kazon-logo-initiations-11.jpg&cfs=1&_nc_hash=AQD41KGGT2bRiKm0

    Discovery wins an Emmy for prosthetic makeup. This is definitely a deserved prize, because from a technical and artistic viewpoint Discovery is among the very best that streaming TV has to offer. And since the Emmy explicitly goes to "If Memory Serves" with its respectful re-imagination of the Talosians, it is a decision I am additionally happy with as an old-school fan. Credit where credit is due for the things that DIS gets right! Congratulations to the 'Star Trek: Discovery' makeup team! https://external.xx.fbcdn.net/safe_image.php?d=AQB1waWGk6UpHz3m&w=130&h=130&url=https://scifanatic-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/creative-arts-emmys-header.jpg&cfs=1&sx=258&sy=0&sw=437&sh=437&_nc_hash=AQA3PlpyBV_AFE7t

    How Star Trek missed its first chance to feature a gay couple. For all of Star Trek‘s progressivism — the first interracial kiss on television, Japanese and Russian bridge officers two decades after World War II and in the middle of the Cold War, women in positions of authority — the franchise didn’t get around to featuring an openly gay character until...

The Continuities of Star Trek

The live-action TV series and movies produced by Star Trek's copyright owners are canon by definition. Until 2009, all canon Star Trek was set in the same timeline (although owing to time travel it was frequently subject to subtle changes). But the continuity is becoming increasingly complex. The Abrams movies explicitly take place in a detached timeline and hence in a new continuity. And although Star Trek Discovery is meant to exist in the same continuity as TOS, this official claim is hard to uphold.

A new article looks at the continuity of Star Trek and how the concept changed over time, from a single timeline to something like a multiverse. The article takes into account the official policy of CBS but also outlines a way to handle reboot series such as Discovery. Note that the purpose of this article is not to discuss whether or not the Abramsverse and Discovery are in contradiction to classic Trek, which I have already done in excruciating detail in several other articles and episode reviews and don't want to rehash here. Regarding the existing continuity issues, there are only summaries.

Read more about how the different series and movies fit in: The Continuities of Star Trek.

    Just a reminder that the submission for guest reviews is open, so everyone can give his opinion on the new Short Treks on a permanent page.

  • 14 Oct 2019

    Paddy: It is obvious we disagree on a couple of things, but that shouldn't stop us from talking because after all the whole rest that keeps the franchise and the fans together is stronger. I often try to perform a change of perspective, and I am grateful you offer and explain a different perspective, instead of simply coming here, saying I'm all wrong or worse.

  • 13 Oct 2019

    Perhaps it's not my fault that much about the new Trek is bad. Perhaps it is possible to enjoy it if we forget that 90s Trek existed. But I definitely won't resort to self-censorship and glossing over the weaknesses of the new Trek just to give a false sense that everything is perfectly fine with it. I always used to rant about bad episodes and I called out canon errors. I will make no exception for Discovery.

    And the thing with the "constant moaning about every new episode" simply isn't true. Just go back to "The Escape Artist" or "Calypso".

  • 13 Oct 2019

    And option 2 is really the only way to have any meaningful discussion around the franchise as a whole.

    It also takes a lot for me to abandon a franchise as well, and I'm hard pressed to think of one that I have (hell, I kept with Trek even through Voyager, Dr Who as well (and there are times that has downright sucked...)).

  • 13 Oct 2019

    I can see a lot of the details of such an incident being suppressed because it happened right slap bang on the Klingon border and the last thing Starfleet would want to admit to is something that could be misconstrued by the Empire as a hostile act at what must be a somewhat fragile time for Federation-Klingon relations. Such an Admiralty cover up is consistent with Starfleet as we know it in DIS as well.

  • 13 Oct 2019

    I used to really enjoy this site and have been reading it for years, but I'm really getting bored with the editors constant moaning about every new episode. Ok, we get it - you miss 90s Trek! I honestly wonder why you bother to review every new episode when you are going to hate it anyway!

  • 13 Oct 2019

    It's a huge canon violation unless Starfleet issued another Lex Spock regarding the Tribbles.

  • 13 Oct 2019

    Oh I will also add something from screenrant that I also agree with. It's not canon busting. It's adding to canon. A dark tribble backstory. They finally made their way to the planet and eventually end up near k7, being picked up by cyrano Jones. There is no violation. According to this episode they were a one off and then ignored, hence why nobody had heard of them. Btw, there are animals on earth that I've never heard of even though people have discovered or studied them.

    Also being killed by your own creations. Lol. Love it. Nice to see not everyone in the fleet is super smart. Also give McCoy a line that they are born pregnant is now icky because Larkin injected his DNA into them.
