Next time, my Star Trek collection.

Well so much for that rumor about a new Star Trek series in the works

I was just reading an article on The Nerdist about a rumor that CBS might be developing the first new Trek TV show in over a decade and I was really hyped for it...right until I got to the end and saw that the info came from Latino Review.

Here's the thing: Latino Review isn't even remotely a reliable source. They're one of those clickbait websites that manufactures rumors in order to get pageviews. Comicbookmovie.com is much the same way.

The article did remind me about how much I pine for a new Trek show. Ten years is way too damn long. Preferably, I'd like one set in the original timeline. If the J. J. Abrams movies hadn't happened, then I'd have been keen on a TOS TV reboot. Since that won't work now, I'd also be keen on a show based in the TOS era, but focused on a different crew and ship.

You know what would be freaking awesome? A picture of either Obi-Wan Kenobi or Luke Skywalker fighting a dragon!

I had that pop into my head just now and holy crap, what badassery that would be! Had I the money, not only would I commission someone to draw it, but I'd also have it airbrushed on the side of a van. The one I have now has "Free Candy" spray painted on the side and while I have no idea who this Candy person is and why they need to be freed, I keep getting weird looks from the neighbors, so I should probably cover it up.*



*That was a joke, obviously. I don't own a van, just a broken down YT-3000 freighter. She's a bit old, but she can do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.
