Agree honestly, it felt like that sort of sci-fi in general was just dead. Far future space-sci fi was just totally unacceptable and Not A Thing and that was so dissapointing
Yes, this! Actually, that’s why Discovery being a prequel does still sting a bit. I still want my post-2370s series. Like, A LOT.
But that we’re even this far is something I NEVER thought would happen, even as few as three years ago (with the reboot films being so divisive). I wish I could tell the me that existed in the 2000s that they’d live to see a new Trek! XD
