Right, you know what? I can't stay silent on this. So here you all go, a long thread about #StarTrek fandom's racism and Anti Blackness. "Enjoy" /1

The last 24h or so have held up a mirror to the Star Trek fandom and it has shown the ugly, racist and Anti Black face it has when confronted with its members bigotry in even the mildest way. /2
A Black woman dared to point out how podcasters with a platform in the fandom prioritized white voices and ignored the voices of especially Black women, but in general all Black and brown people. /3

The inclusion of Lurians in both #StarTrekDiscovery and #StarTrekLowerDecks finally allows for comparison, and raises one very important question.

Is Morn:

A) Buff AF, and wearing skin-tight clothing
B) Chonk, and squeezing into it
C) Wearing a puff coat (it WAS the 90's) A bulldog-faced alien, with a head far too large for its bod(Animated) a bulldog-faced Lurian and a blue-skinned AndoriaMorn, from Deep Space Nine, standing beside Odo. His clothin
YOU DECIDE.

The one thing that is not in question is the absolute hammer that Morn is swinging. It takes a lot to make Jadzia yearn.

I haven't been watching #StarTrekLowerDecks, but I would totally watch the episode where Boimler finally sucks Mariner out the airlock. Yes, I know that isn't very Trek-like, but neither is one officer constantly putting down another.

It's not "funny", it's abuse. At the very least, Boimler would lodge a complaint, request a transfer, or tender his resignation.

Also, a daughter serving under her mother on the same ship? Accusations of favoritism alone would make that situation impossible.

Starfleet is not a corporation or a high school, people. It's Starfleet. And I expect them to get it right, even in a cartoon.

I'm so glad of #ComiConAtHome! Long have I dreamed of going to #SDCC, but now I didn't have to go to San Diego, California just to SEE the comicon's #StarTrek Universe panel. πŸ€“πŸ––πŸ» The script reading of Star Trek Discovery cast is awesome! Image
Wait. "Romulan whiskey"??? #StarTrekLowerDecks #ComiConAtHome #SDCC2020 Image
Isa Briones in the leading role-- finally a Filipina in #StarTrek--means so much to me. Really. #StarTrekPicard is just so good. Best Trek season finale ever. Image

As we get closer to Saturday I feel the need to say something to the fandom at large that I know will piss some people off or will come off as trying to dampen the hype but I think it needs saying. This will be long. /1 #StarTrekSDCC #StarTrekPicard #StarTrekDiscovery #StarTrek
I believe we're all hyped about #StarTrekPicard & are looking forward to seeing what's next for Picard! This is not a one or the other situation. One is not less of a fan if they look forward to this & enjoy #StarTrekDiscovery & are looking forward to new info about that too. /2
I say this because there are going to be ppl in this fandom or ppl trying to co-opt it that are about to show their asses off come Sat, acting like complete assholes. The phrases "true Trek", "STD", & "finally some good Trek" & the like are going to be spoken & typed by some. /3
