Thing that I liked about Star Trek that isn't true anymore:
They didn't generally re-cast major characters with different actors (Saavik notwithstanding)
They used to be okay with the actors aging, and with the passage of time, and moving forward
On several occasions they even made this a plot point
opinions (sorry, I got more); Discovery Season 2 spoil Show more
Also, I wish that Discovery season 2 had said ... something ... anything??
It's like every episode they gestured briefly at a potential theme and then gave us a sort of promissory note that they'd piece it all into something good at the end
And when the end came, the big picture was a boilerplate time-travel paradox

Why are you even writing Trek if you have nothing to say but technobable?
