If ST:Disco is so unconcerned with the canon of the shows that proceeded it, why not just set itself far enough in the future from those shows that it can ignore their cannon?
It'd be real easy to set your show 500 or 1000 years after TNG.
Set up a plot about how some war devastated the federation and halted technological progress, and it's only now being rebuilt. Make not knowing things about the past in to a plot point, if you want.
@ajroach42 i have said it before and I will keep saying
Give me the next next generation!!
I don’t want prequels, I don’t want movies, I only kinda want the Picard show. I want the show that’s 60-80 years after tng, 1 cameo in the first few episodes, and then all new shit. Except for the throwback eps obvs.
I'm not watching any more Star Trek until they fix their universe. I know it's all the rage to have different universes with different histories. That's what they've done, but because of the way they have time working, they've invalidated all the episodes I've ever loved. Those events never happened. (Maybe something similar will happen, but maybe there's deeper, more core shit where they're going to diverge first.)
It presents itself as bad fanfiction, so I wait.
