Ok that link is something I've never read before. The thing is the Klingons of that time period were always hostile towards the federation and were imperialistic (though not really xenophobic). In fact, later in Discovery Ash, Burnham and the alternate universe Captain go to Qnos and there's all kinds of species there so clearly Klingons are not as racist/xenophobic as that interview suggests. That's why I think the claims of SJW or Klingons not being true to their character rings hollow. I hate the redesign of them as well but I don't see any parallels with them and Trump.
PERSONALLY I can't stand Michael Burnham, I think she is a very contrived character that is a wannabe spock + generic human emotions attached. BUT I don't see any hardcore SJW agenda being pushed with her apart from the name being Michael which isn't all that SJW to be honest. I have a friend from the UK that is male named Ashley, does that mean his parents were SJWs?
With regards to the spore drive psuedo science I completely agree, it was a cheap plot mechanic and I really disliked it. However, it's still Star Trek and every scientific concept on that show is b.s. and it started with TOS and the transporter (they wrote it in to save on money for special effects) so the spore drive is just another typical Star Trek contrived plot device. I mean just look at past Star Trek shows like DS:9 and the prophets which was incredibly annoying and cringy which I think is worse than this.
You know what I find amusing is people say Discovery is SJW crap and praise Orville but Orville has FAR more liberal SJW messages embedded in it. From bortis and his gay husband's child being sexually reassigned to Captain Mercer being a typified White male weak cuck who still wants his ex-wife back after she bones some blue alien and then he subsequently bangs the dude too and doesn't think afterwards "holy shit I just banged a guy". Instead they just brush it off as just another day at the office.
Not sure what you mean the last paragraph. Didn’t the blue alien have the ability to sexually attract anyone? Where the other person had no control over it? Not sure why they should feel guilty for something they had no control over. Why waste more time on that. Orville after all is a more of a space comedy it’s not suppose to be super serious.
Honestly I never watch a show from political point of view. I leave that at the door. Don’t need my political biases influencing entertainment. I watch it for fun and entertaining not overthink things. Orville is what it is.
I guess I am the only one that enjoys both Star Trek and Orville. May be one can actually enjoy shows leaving politics on the side.
