Though I am not overall a fan of Discovery
, I do wholeheartedly give S2 credit for reintroducing Pike’s Enterprise
into the ST universe and ultimately getting it greenlighted for its own spinoff. Thanks to COVID, Strange New Worlds
is progressing slowly, so I may be jumping the gun by a few years, but I find myself hoping that the end of that series, or maybe a post-series special/movie, will devote some time to Pike’s life on Talos IV. I think this has some great potential to be excellent Star Trek
, excellent sci-fi, and excellent human drama, and I’m going to ramble on about it.
