I read that Patrick Stewart is coming back to do a movie. He's my favorite captain, though I'm biased having grown up with TNG. Maybe the genre should be Sci-Fan(tasy)?

I'm generally not into fantasy, but I do like both Star Trek and Star Wars.

TV series. Not movie, but yes it's extremely exciting.

Oh really? The context in which I read the thing sounded like a movie, but TV series is even better in my view.

Who cares what it's called? It's just a label.

The only difference, in my mind, between sci-fi and fantasy is one has post-modern technology while the other has pre-modern (medieval) tech. My preference is fatasy, because they(usually) don't try to explain things (magic) rationally. The farther something is from reality, the better, imo.

Thanks for the pic, enjoyed the comparison!

I did not have any idea what to think about STD, but I am not paying for All Access, so I guess that it does not matter.

I thought that I read that, not only could you not watch it on a trial account, but they required a year's subscription, but whether they changed that policy or I was mistaken, yes, you can binge-watch on a trial subscription.
