There seems to be no end to this final frontier. Take this movie: Is it a reboot? A prequel? But there’s an alternate timeline? But Old Spock is in it, so is it a reboot hidden inside a prequel-sequel? (As if … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Star Trek – Enterprise (2001-2005)

Enterprise. That word will forever be synonymous with Star Trek, so it was the perfect title for this prequel series. Taking place nearly 100 years before Captain Kirk’s time, many “firsts” happen on this show, setting up the mythology we’ve … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Star Trek – Deep Space Nine (1993-1999)

Deep Space Nine. Well, I certainly feel like I’m in deep something, because this is where binge-watching all things Star Trek becomes more work than fun. Beginning during The Next Generation’s 6th Season, Deep Space Nine is on a parallel … Continue reading

Set nearly 100 years after The Original Series is The Next Generation, which has polarized “Trekkies” ever since it first aired. With an all-new cast set in an all-new time on an all-new Enterprise, 20-year veterans had to decide whether to accept the new recruits or … Continue reading
