Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (a Pike show)

Yes. Infuriating.

So basically TOS season 0? Season -1? Season -X?

TOS season 4 starts to seem more and more likey, doesn't it?

This will bear no resemblance to TOS or anything remotely of quality.

Sadly this franchise is clearly dead and needs to go on a long hiatus. It’s unfortunate but it’s much needed.

I'm somewhere between indifferent and mildly pissed off.

Sigh.

With as much of a letdown as Picard was, I still wish they'd stick to moving the ball FVCKING FORWARD.

Prequels. Gawd.

Of all the things in the CBS All Acess Trek I actually like, Anson Mount as Pike is it. I might give this a chance, but as stated, my hopes aren't high given Picard.

STD season 1 and 2 and STP, it's the same writers. Anson Mount is great as Pike... but do you know who is great as Jean Luc Picard? Patrick Stewart. Yet STP is horrific.

A big vote of absolute no confidence from me.

True, to a point. Anson Mount was good as Pike as written in Star Trek Discovery. Sadly as great as Patrick Stewart is he couldn't Elevate Picard in Star Trek Picard.

on side note I just saw an article that said that the new Pike series will be more optimistic and episodic, in other words, more like regular Star Trek.

Complete with mandatory explosions, people screaming at one another, and tech they shouldn't have yet, like the 100s of starfighters and R2D2 units the Enterprise had in the last STD finale. And nonsense like "time crystals."

When fans will complain, they will say the usual "well what did you think this was supposed to look like?? A 1960s show? LOL!"

Two things. 1) Nobody has a gun at their head forcing them to make more prequels set in the TOS era. 2) Enterprise and DS9 made it a point to honor that era in their dipping into it the two times they did... so it CAN be done, they can't say it can't.
