A Trek for Millennials
I'm definitely ready for a new Star Trek series, this time recounting stories and adventures of a diverse, principled, mostly nonhuman crew of Federation scientists and doctors who have as little to do as possible with the uptight sociopaths of the reactionary militarist Star Fleet. It would be great if they made a point of having episodes written by working science fiction authors who are actually intelligent, inspiring, and provocative. Imagine Trek eps written by Nnedi Okorafor, Bruce Sterling, Becky Chambers!
