23 Weeks of Trek - Discovery Returns!

“23 Weeks of STAR TREK!” It sounds great doesn't it?

 Fun Fact - even back when a season of Star Trek meant twenty three episodes or more, there would still be breaks or hiatus' built into a season. This is the first time in the history of the franchise where we're given nearly half a year of new Star Trek every week. Ten weeks of STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS followed immediately by thirteen weeks of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY!

Of course, we just got a fresh look at the U.S.S. DISCOVERY's Cmdr. Michael Burnham. 

She's back in uniform and wearing the latest iteration of Starfleet insignia. 

Side note - anybody else besides me wondering if that's just a combadge, or something way cooler?

Either way, we're in for a wild ride when Discovery returns. Nine hundred thirty or so years into the future what will the galaxy look like? Will friends still be friends? Enemies still be enemies? And what if anything remains of Starfleet and The United Federation of Planets?

I have theories of course. I wonder if there are any clues to be found in Michael Chabon's SHORT TREKS episode "Calypso?" Is Zora the result of The Sphere Data merging with Discovery's Computer? Has the ship Craft found been waiting a thousand years beyond when Burnham and the crew arrived in the year 3187? Is the enemy he fought in the war, which he called “The V'draysh” - all that's left of The Federation?

We'll have to wait and see, but the good news is that we don't have to wait too much longer. AND we have Lower Decks to enjoy till Discovery returns! I've said it before, and I'll say it again...NOW is the best time to be a Star Trek Fan! There's more new Trek coming our way now than at any point in the franchise's history! Way back in the day between the end of The Original Series, and the first Motion Picture we used to have a saying that affirmed how we all felt about our favorite show, and it's more accurate now than ever before...

STAR TREK LIVES!


LLAP,
John
