🖖 The Star Trek Thread

To talk about all things Star Trek.

Yesterday was First Contact Day, so we got a ton of news drop. Discovery, Picard, and Lower Decks all had teaser trailer drops for Seasons 4, 2, and 2 respectively. Meanwhile, Nickelodeon show has shown a teaser poster showing off the main cast and what Captain Janeway will look like. And finally we know that Strange New Worlds is in production, Discovery Season 4 is meant to be 2021, and Lower Decks Season 2 is confirmed to start airing on Paramount Plus on August 12 2021. Also Lower Decks Season 3 has been confirmed.

So yeah, exciting stuff. I’d link the teaser videos but I don’t think HMF lets you embed Twitter posts? I’ll put them up when they get put on Youtube. Ofcourse the question is for people outside the states how readily available this content will be, as far as I know Paramount Plus is only available in a handful of countries right now. In the UK for example, Netflix has Discovery, and Amazon Prime has Picard and Lower Decks. Will Netflix get Discovery Season 4 and Amazon Prime get Lower Decks Season 2? Guess we’ll see but right now outside the USA, it’s a bit of a vague situation for everyone.

The only thing I like about Star Trek is Patrick Stewart and I dont mean his Role in it, just the man himself :heart:

I don’t hate or dislike Star Trek at all, its just not my Thing.

Yeah, I only saw Kate Mulgrews tweet yesterday and haven’t looked into the show that much. But they nailed the Janeway look at least, I’ll at least check it out just for her

I hope it gets them as they release, coz for series 1 they didn’t so regrettably I pirated them to keep up to date

I hope so. I’m not even sure the rest of Europe even got Lower Decks Season 1 atall. Guess it depends when Paramount Plus is meant to debut, a quick Google seems to show up nothing about it. So maybe another year of putting it on other streaming sites? But yeah, Lower Decks is easily my favourite so far, so really hope the UK gets it at the same time as the USA this time.

They’re getting another splinter streaming service? :joy: US needs to chill out like

It’s nice having an episodic trek back, definitely. Think Discovery is still my current fav tho, despite its many many flaws

Yes and no. Paramount Plus is replacing CBS All Access, which we never got to begin with. I think Paramount Plus has a bit more on it though, like a bigger movie collection, some more shows etc. The goal really does seem to be to make enough Star Trek content so that there is a new episode of a Trek show every week, hence a reason to stay subscribed.

To be honest, haven’t watched Discovery Season 3 aside from the first episode, and likewise Picard Season 1 aside from the first episode. Really should though, but like a bunch of others, kindof hoping Strange New Worlds is going to be a bit of a return to a more classic kindof Trek. Hopefully Prodigy will be good and won’t just be aimed at the kids.

Just don’t :joy: save yourself

Tbh forgot that was even a thing. Like hype tho

Yeah but them fiddling about with streaming services over there often means it takes longer to get over here, which sucks

Anyways, love that you made this thread :green_heart: feels like most HMF people are more into Star Wars, but glad we have our own lil space (pardon the pun) too

Paramount announces new Trek film for June 9th 2023. Aside from a date, no actual info about the movie is known.

Don’t know why the Star Trek official Youtube channel doesn’t upload the new trailers for Disco, LD, Picard, I’d embed them here if they actually bothered.

TNG is my favorite show. The episode where Data is deemed property or person is a personal favorite. The fact that the crew were mature and didn’t bicker and argue is a big plus for me. Lots of ethical dilemmas in a thorough framework. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Just started watching Voyager, and it’s looking amazing as well.
