The litany of sadness over the death of “Star Trek: Discovery” continued on the show’s subreddit community. “Shame,” offered u/Houli_B_Back. “Out of all the live-action shows, [‘Discovery’] felt like the one that was the most progressive and doing something new with the franchise.” u/Notcreative-number added, “Dammit. At least we know going into Season 5 but it’ll be bittersweet.”
“Damn, I was hoping for the traditional seven seasons,” wrote u/God_of_Hyrule, referring to something that’s happened three times across 12 “Stark Trek” TV series. “Hopefully, there’s more [‘Star Trek’] in store for the future.”
There is, but it’s grim — for the time being, Trekkies will have to make do with the remainder of the final season of “Star Trek: Picard”, the returning “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds,” “Star Trek: Prodigy,” and “Star Trek: Lower Decks,” the basically unavoidable Sisko revival series that feels like it could be coming any day now, and maybe that Section 31 spin-off with Michelle Yeoh that they keep poking at.
Yes, with more than half a century of stories under its belt, the “Trek” universe will boldly go on. We may even see a “Discovery” revival at some point in the future — but it’ll be a long road, getting from here to there.
