Anson Mount and Ethan Peck Look Back on Their Star Trek Tour of Duty

Star Trek: Discovery had a lot to prove going into its second season – especially in its bold move to cast new faces as two very familiar heroes from Trek’s past and bring them into Discovery’s morally murky take on a pre-original series Federation. But Discovery’s second season not only took on those high expectations, in many ways it surpassed them. Read More >>

It’s Time for Star Trek to Tackle Climate Change

It’s a great time to be a Star Trek fan. After years of lying low like a dormant space tardigrade, the franchise is bursting with new life.

How Queer Is Star Trek?

Star Trek is not just one of the longest-running sci-fi franchises ever, it is also the most hopeful. The Federation represents the pinnacle of humanity: the idea that we can and will make a better life for each other.

As Star Trek: Discovery heads into its next chapter, let’s look back at the franchise’s history of LGBTQ+ representation. Does Discovery fulfill the promise of a more harmonious, progressive future? Or does it, too, fall prey to the pitfalls that have plagued Star Trek’s past? Read More >>

Star Trek: Discovery’s second season has come to an end, and it’s ended with one hell of a bang. Several bangs, even. Actually, its season finale was approximately 90 per cent bangs. It was Star Trek unlike Star Trek as we’ve seen it before, for better or worse, but it all built up to something potentially far more explosive than any amount of photon torpedoes could match.

After an entire season of build up, this is it. Star Trek: Discovery has come crashing into its endgame and the battle against Control is ready to begin.
