Wow, you actually remember The Original Series. I gotta give you brownie points for that. 🍪🍪🍪

However, what you fail to understand is that "representation" is not a substitute for good storytelling and respect for continuity.

Also, keep in mind that "diversity" in #StarTrek includes non-Terrans, because in-universe, they are real, even if they aren't in "the real world".

So portraying Vulcans and Klingons the way Abrams and Kurtzman have would be unacceptable if they were real people.

Using non-Terran characters as caricatures isn't really "representation", y'all. And it's boring, besides. I loved their distinctiveness. Instead, we get "logic extremists" as if Surakism isn't valid or something.

This is playing on Tubi. I'll let you know if it's good when I finish it.

So far, it seems like a James Bond adultified version of Who possibly played in movie theaters at the time.
Ugh, the music is totally inappropriate at times.

#StarTrek #TNG is showing free on Pluto TV. Image
It appears to be showing in chronological order, too, although I'll have to check on that 🤷‍♀️

We never did get see Lore again after the end of the show, which is a shame.

I wonder what the literacy rate in Britain was at the time?

The high servants putting down the low servant 😔
