The Trek You Want To See in 2019

A few months ago, we asked you what in the Star Trek multiverse you were most looking forward to, whether that be predictions for Discovery or upcoming shows.  Here’s what you had to say (edited for length, clarity, and content).

*  *  *

Patrick Stewart/Jean Luc Picard! (Pretty sure that particular new series won’t come out this coming year, but a woman can dream!)
Editor’s Note:  Last we heard, the premiere is schedule for “late 2019.”

So I REALLY want a wacky holodeck adventure and I’ll be super sad if it doesn’t happen. Also, less queer pain.

In the coming year, I hope to see more character development of the bridge crew of Discovery, and I hope we find a way to get Dr. Culber back on board.

For 2019, I hope to see in Trek:
*more of the future. I love Disco, but the timeline around the end of Voyager/TNG/DS9 seemed to be at a point when humanity had truly begun to become “the Change They Want To See in the Galaxy.” …. I want to feel like we really do want Peaceful Exploration.
*I am hopeful that we will get more aliens. (new and old) Kelpians, Orions, and Andorians..?! Oh My!
*I would like to see Q stories. The Continuum is overflowing with omnipotent beings to tinker with humanity.
*I hope we will also see more shows that I can introduce my kids to. Star Wars Rebels and Clone Wars (Ahsoka Tano, anyone?) did a great job of getting my now 8 & 9 year old daughters into Star Wars, but TAS is not something they cared about.

I’d like to see a lot of Spock and Michael interaction. And Klingons! Plus, I’m already fond of Pike! Thanks!

I am most looking forward to learning more about the relationship between Michael Burnham and Spock.

One of the things that I’m really looking forward to in Discovery is the little moments that there used to be in DS9 – I want more of what Dax and Kira had, but with Tilly and Michael. I’m also looking forward to the Section 31/Georgiou show. Michelle Yeoh has been a long time crush of mine so I’m so excited to see things I love overlap.

I want to see Discovery do a straight-up episode of TAS. Animate it like filmation in the 1970s, fill it with a ton of exposition and put 3 times as much plot into the episode as it can handle. Okay, maybe better for a Trek Short?

I am looking forward to seeing the Philippa Georgiou/Section 31 show, but would like to see that Section 31 is not the completely “evil” organization that they appear to be in DS9.  While there are plenty of books which depict the TV series’ after the TNG finale, I would love to see what happened to everyone (maybe on the Picard series.)  And while I understand that the Lower Decks TV animated series will be on the sillier side, I just hope that it won’t be too silly as to boarder on stupid.  Finally, I would like to see Discovery show first contact between the federation and other featured alien races like the Cardassians.

Is the animated series starting this year? If so that’s what I most want to see!! If not, then just Discovery coming into its own!

  1. A small update, but Jonathan Frakes told me in his autograph line at Awesome Con that the Picard show was dropping in December. (I had thanked him for his work on Discovery, and he said, “Just wait for the Picard show.” He’s obviously excited about it.)
