    Huh. I've yet to watch Gen V but - with respect to the smattering of NuTrek I *do* like - NuTrek hasn't produced anything a fraction as entertaining as The Boys. I wouldn't think Gen V's success (let alone it's style and tone) signifies anything for this Academy project.

    No, but just think if one academy show can be good than maybe a Star Trek one too?

    canon cops are dumb. Especially if it's set when we think it's set.

    Seems to be an over reaction to an informal term. I take it to mean there are folks in the writers room who know the canon.
    Even being set when we think its set there will be continuity.

    Could be worse; at least they're not going on about Gene's Vision (TM).

    I think they are contractually obligated to mention canon and Gene’s Vision in PR puff pieces.

    It seems pretty obvious Newsome was being sarcastic about "canon cops." She just meant there are writers on the show's staff who really know their Trek.

    But okay, let's panic over the apparent direction the franchise is clearly headed because of this comment.

    ENT had both canon cops and a willingness to play a little loose with pre-TOS lore (which wasn't much as of 2001-05) so a series or film can have it both ways, with a dedication to keeping the chronology intact but also playing around within the parameters and giving us surprises that still fit with the established universe.

    Default reaction.

    Though I don't see the panic yet. I thought it was scheduled for Friday?

    The Harrimans in the fandom want to postpone it until Tuesday.

    Tbf pre-TOS was always a bit vague

    Hence my "which wasn't much as of 2001-05." There's even less to worry about in the 32nd century with so little known between Season 3 of PIC and The Burn.

    I was kinda hoping that the academy show would be set during or just after the Romulan War Era.

    I know it was a pipe dream, but it would have been really interesting to see the actual start of the Federation through the eyes of its first few Academy graduates.

    Oh well. :sigh:

    Not really interested in watching something that's set so far into the future of Trek.
    Discovery is just barely holding my interest as it is.

    I think They've picked the wrong era for this type of show to have any bearing on today's audiences.
    (only my opinion, of course)

    I'll definitely give it a go, but I'm not very hopeful about it.

    How?

    Trek can fit in any era.

    I'd prefer it to be right after Picard
