I grew up on “The Next Generation”, but I am really liking “Strange New Worlds”.
I have to say that the other recent series were too dark, and I felt adrenalin burn out watching the worst-case scenario, followed by the worst-case scenario. Cliffhanger after cliffhanger. That’s partially why I started writing; there just didn’t seem to be any uplifting stories out there.
If “Strange New Worlds” came out earlier, I may not have started writing, but I am enjoying it.
FYI, my stories are developing holograms soon. I am writing origin stories, so it will be a slow gradual process, but we will get there.
