Star Trek: Discovery is promising to be a fantastic series by approaching the well-established canon and giving everyone a new idea of the world that Gene Roddenberry invented, the truth behind the perceived utopia and what actually happened in the first Federation/Klingon war. Yet some wonder if Star Trek could break new ground but Star Trek: Discovery has proven that it can.
Sexuality, until recently, has been a topic to be – and when it was discussed or shown at all, it was usually between a male and female. While it was also rumored that Seven of Nine, of Star Trek: Voyager, was intended to be a lesbian character, that storyline never materialized. Instead, it was Star Trek: Discovery that created the first openly gay character of the franchise and shown a fully developed character storyline.
With its first season winding down and the series being critically acclaimed, we are pretty much guaranteed another season. With the characters showing true diversity, are we surprised? With talk of a new Star Trek movie directed by Quentin Tarantino, there looks to be a great future for the franchise in 2018.
