I will be honest, I didn’t take this photo, saying that however this image means a lot to me. This image is from a new behind the scenes trailer that CBS released this past week for their new Star Trek series Discovery.
I have been a Star Trek fan since I can remember. I remember sitting down with my mum and watching the first episode of Next Generation way back in the late ’80s (boy that makes me feel old). I remember loving the fact that this was a better humanity that was being portrayed, since then I have been hooked on every Star Trek incarnation ever since. Every time there is a new series or movie I eagerly await its release and then enjoy what is produced, yes I have my favourites and there are some episodes I struggle to watch , but for me Star Trek is much more then that, for me it is like a family, watching Star Trek is like meeting up with family members you haven’t seen for a while, you on the whole instantly pick up where you left off.
This is the reason I am looking forward to the release of the newest incarnation of the franchise in the form of Star Trek Discovery. Yes they will be an infamiliar crew and an unfamiliar ship, but it is still set in that optimist view of humanities future and boy we could do with some optimism in the world right about now.
