I Didn't really care for Number 1's Relationship with *******. Gotta Love Trek's Wokeness in their new show's!
Nobody's forcing you to watch the new stuff. Feel free to go back to the gold old days when jadzia kisses another woman, riker develops a relationship with nonbinary individual who seeks to transition, and trip/tpol have an
interracial interspecies baby.
Yeah, Trek being progressive is nothing new. Was actually kind of talking about this earlier today with some friends... since a lot of early TNG scripts were actually old TOS/Phase II scripts, they would have been borderline Revolutionary for the time.
Take everyone's "favorite" TNG episode: Code of Honor
. Watching it in the late 1980s, it was pretty terrible and racist, but rewind even twenty years to the late 1960s, and people would have said "look at how bold Roddenberry was to make a planet where black people are in charge!" Assuming the network even allowed such an episode, they'd probably get complaints from the deep south refusing to air it like the Betty White show when she refused to get rid of Arthur Duncan.
I'm also old enough to remember discovering TNG, getting hooked, and having a bunch of crunchy old trekkers bitch about how TNG could never top TOS and how the new cast and stories were terrible, etc.
People like what they like. Watch what works for you.
