Star Trek Discovery S2.2: The way to “New Eden”…

****STARSHIP-SIZED SPOILERS!!**** The latest episode of Discovery’s title, “New Eden”, briefly recalled (for me, anyway) the crazy space-hippies in TOS’ “The Way To Eden.” But this latest episode wasn’t about stealing shuttles and eating acidic apples.

To any readers who haven’t seen it, or…

Searching for Spock, and the issue of recasting…

News broke earlier this week that “Star Trek Discovery” has recast the role of “Spock” yet again, and the actor they’ve chosen is Ethan Peck (grandson of legendary actor Gregory Peck).  This isn’t the first time “Star Trek: Discovery” has recast a previously established role for the new series. Mark Lenard was the original actor to play…
