A black writer for Star Trek: Discovery decided to quit after a co writer ratted out his use of the N word to his bosses. Quitting was the right response.
To better understand how important ‘Star Trek’ is to reading the TV climate, it’s worth looking at what happened the last time it was so popular.
The series recaptures one of the greatest virtues of science fiction long gone missing in other genres: a strong, self-sacrificing, masculine hero.
Previous Star Trek series had a problem with overly utopian idealism. Now the problem is that they’ve beaten all of it out of the franchise.
With ‘Star Trek: Discovery,’ the franchise has a chance to return to its TV roots and the high-concept sci-fi story-telling that made it a cult favorite.
