'Star Trek: Discovery' Star Replies to Show's Racist Critics
Sonequa Martin-Green torpedos the trolls as the first ‘Discovery’ cast member to speak out on diversity criticism

“Well, I would encourage them to key into the essence and spirit of Star Trek that has made it the legacy it is — and that’s looking across the way to the person sitting in front of you and realizing you are the same, that they are not separate from you, and we are all one,” Martin-Green said. “That’s something Star Trek has always upheld and I completely believe that is why it’s been a mainstay in society in the hearts of so many people for so many decades. I would encourage them to look past their opinions and social conditioning and key into what we’re doing here — which is telling a story about humanity that will hopefully bring us all together.

“And it’s hard to understand and appreciate Star Trek if you don’t understand and appreciate that,” Martin-Green continued. “It’s one of the foundational principles of Star Trek and I feel if you miss that then you miss the legacy itself. I’m incredibly proud to be the lead of this show and be at the forefront of an iteration of Star Trek that’s from the eyes of a black woman that’s never been done before, though obviously there’s been other forms of diversity that have been innovated by Trek. I feel like we’re taking another step forward, which I think all stories should do. We should go boldly where nobody has gone before and stay true to that.”

a logical progression of a technology:

tng: transporters are very safe! its been a long time since there was an accident *immediately followed by an accident*

tos: transporter accidents only happen every ten episodes or so causing some weird shit

disco: a transporter accident every five minutes, the scientists are crying, the crew should be 90% engineers to get this thing running but they keep disappearing or turning into cats

AU where everything is the same, except the universal translator only produces Google Translate - quality translations and therefore all the aliens speak in grammatically incorrect sentences and make weird vocabulary mistakes that frequently cause misunderstandings.

[I just watched Innocence, and I was not expecting Tuvok to sing. He’s got a really nice voice!]

Editors Note: If you’re interested, Tim Russ has released 3 CDs over the last 15+ years. The first is brief and just 6 covers, but the others are longer and include some original work. He does gigs at LA clubs (which he tweets about) and when possible sings at conventions.
