Imagination Connoisseur Kevin writes in to say he’s thankful for STAR TREK: DISCOVERY and STAR TREK: PICARD because it’s made him even more thankful for older versions of Trek – and he’s amazed at what he’s seeing now that he’s re-watching his favorite shows and movies.

Hello Rob.

I remember being a kid and getting all excited to see new episodes of STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE (ST:ENT) as that was the Star Trek show I grew up with. I’m 20 now and I still remember turning on the TV and watching that beautiful NX-01 do a fly by or battle with the Xindi. For all its weaknesses, ST:ENT is fantastic, in my opinion at least.

I know what do we have now, 2 of the most expensive shows ever produced and they are not even decent shows.

The state that Star Trek is in right now has made me go back and rewatch all of it. I have found I enjoy it more now than before I actually had some perspective. I even found myself enjoying some of the “bad” Star Trek – like STAR TREK: NEMESIS (ST:NEM), it’s now one of my favorite Star Trek films. STAR TREK: THE FINAL FRONTIER (ST:TFF) is up there just because of Kirk Spock & McCoy. I even enjoyed going back and watching STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE (ST:TMP) and watched it 2 times in one sitting.

In some ways I’m actually thankful for STAR TREK: DISCOVERY (ST:DISC) and STAR TREK: PICARD (ST:PIC) as they have made me enjoy old Star Trek even more than i did before.

It even made my brother a fan. When he started watching ST:DISC he found it okay and got curious of how Star Trek was before and he binge watched STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES (ST:TOS), STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION (ST:TNG), STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE 9 (ST:DS9), STAR TREK: VOYAGER (ST:VOY) and ST:ENT – and he actually stopped watching ST:DISC because he enjoyed original Star Trek more and he’s a Star Wars guy.

I really hope Secret Hideout goes bye-bye cause I think there will be another “death of the franchise” like 2005.

This is probably a really short letter, but I’m not a writer so forgive me if it doesn’t make that much sense.

By the way, if you haven’t already, check out a little film called: PLEASE STAND BY (imdb). Dakota Fanning stars as a woman who escapes a group home hoping to get her Star Trek script produced in Hollywood. Also starring Toni Collette, Alice Eve and Patton Oswalt. It’s a beautiful film.
