A Note To Our Reader/s

Hello everyone,

There's been a bit of hiatus here at Treknobabble. It's not really caused by anything in particular - Summer got us busy, we were done with Voyager, we haven't started Enterprise.... and then there's this thing called "Star Trek" on Paramount's streaming service.

Kevin and I are both deeply ambivalent about continuing reviews of Alex Kurtzman's "Star Trek." It might make me (Matthew) more outright upset than Kevin, but I don't think Kevin enjoys it or my bellyaching either.

So we will be getting to Enterprise soon. We will also likely review the latest season of Lower Decks. But Picard Season2, Discovery Season 4, and Strange New Worlds Season 1? The jury is out.It's hard to hate something you used to love, and to keep hating it for the same reasons month in and month out.
