Star Trek: Thoughts about Pike on Talos IV

S
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.

Spoilers follow for ST:O’s “The Cage” and “The Menagerie” and light spoilers for the Taelons in Earth: Final ConflictRead more… )
