    Out of curiosity I decided to watch the first episode, and it didn’t fail to disappoint. Ahh…so many reasons.

    First, Federation starships are warships/exploration vessels, used to protect Federation planets, colonies, and ships. As an old fashioned guy in many ways, I strongly dislike the idea of women in combat roles. Therefore, I don’t like women in command of such ships or having fighting roles. On the other hand, having women crewmen on board isn’t a problem for me, because there are many non-military ways they can serve. So it can work out if done right, but this series doesn’t even try. Surprise surprise – it seems to delight in attacking the traditional role of women in society, as both the commander and first officer are women.

    Second, the first officer (a woman) is named Michael, a guy’s name. So they’ve added gender confusion to the mix.

    Third, Star Trek was created in the USA, and I like American names for the ships. This new ship is named the Shenzhou, and is commanded, of course, by an oriental woman. No thanks.

    Fourth, they will soon introduce a queer couple, a new devolutionary low for the series.

    So all in all, this series has become crud.

    The Orville is almost as bad, indicating a spreading moral sickness emanating from Hollywood like a plague. Our society is really degenerating.
