Now I really want to see those two have a staring contest.
Another bit of footage turned up in my Youtube feed...
Again this is only about the umpteenth starship battle between Federation ships and Klingon ships...
Damn, that's disappointing
What`s worse is in the Youtube comments section with a ton of yahoos claiming this is TRUE Trek, free of all ''woke crap'' from the CBS reboots.
I had to leave a comment there, asking ''who do they think actually created Star Trek? they were for the time as woke as you could get!''
I find the anti-SJW crowd feeling that way about Axanar strange because from what I've seen Peters and also Jonathan Lane, etc. have diverse casts. Perhaps some of the people who feel Axanar/Interlude are not "woke" are just saying that because neither has a black/diverse lead, though Warren Hawk's character comes across like the lead in Interlude, or will have a sizable role. Though Patrick Stewart was the main character, naturally, of Picard, I get a sense that it was Stewart's personal political bent and the political influences/underpinnings of the first season that ruffled some feathers. Thinking back now, there was also that grousing about DISCO even before it came out, though to be fair, some of DISCO's producers played a role in that when they said their take on Klingons would be inspired by Trump supporters.
Back to the cheering for Axanar over its supposed non-wokeness, if the anti-SJW crowd is championing it because they feel that Axanar focuses on war and action, well, that was a big focus of DISCO Season 1 and both DISCO Season 2 and Picard Season 1 both had some big space action scenes.
I've said in other threads how much I like the aesthetics of Axanar and their traditional take on the Klingons more than DISCO. I was very pleased with Prelude to Axanar, and I'm eager to see Interlude and anything else they are able to do.
Pretty much all the stuff they declared "not True Trek" (i.e. pew-pew, action, war, darker tone) is what I see in Axanar and Interlude.
First thing I noticed. Too creepy.
That Interlude clip did well when it was posted on Axanar channel:
Axanar: Bootleg Star Trek for Middle Aged, Straight, White Men.
Woke or un-woke.........it's their being snake oil salesmen that colors my dislike for anything Axanar. Stealing from a widow didn't help either.
See the sunk-cost fallacy.
