Star Trek: Lower Decks and Discovery have ruined the original series for me

Star Trek is a beloved show for many, and with good reason. As a franchise that’s graced our screens for over 50 years now, the impact of Gene Roddenberry’s creation on popular culture and sci-fi can’t be overstated.

Even now, Star Trek fever shows no sign of abating, with five ongoing TV series currently releasing to our screens. There’s Discovery, soon entering its fifth season; Patrick Stewart reprising his role from The Next Generation for Star Trek: Picard; Discovery spin-off Strange New Worlds; the animated and very funny Amazon series Lower Decks; and the Nickelodeon series Prodigy for kids. And that’s all alongside a long and illustrious history of past series and films in the Star Trek universe still available to watch.
