Endgame gives a not subtle nod to Star Trek, Terminator, Time Cop, Time After Time, Quantum Leap, Wrinkle in Time, Somewhere in Time, Hot Tub Time Machine, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Die Hard, and Back to the Future for their establishing the rules of time travel and then immediately tries to re-write those rules. Uhm, hello!?! The rules were established in the past, silly rabbit! And you can’t go back and change the past. Right?

It has been several weeks since the trailer for Star Trek: Discovery was released. I’m still not completely sure what to think. That first week I downloaded it and watched it repeatedly, then frame by frame. I read the hype machine, or a fair bit of it. All the while I burned through the five stages of fanboi reaction: indifference, manic happiness, suicidal pessimism and spent confusion. (I know, that is only four. I was a philosophy major. You do the math — or whatever.)
