how come we are spied on in every possible way (#5eyes, #InQTel & hundreds others) and everything is valid to you (& me), the average guy to court, to get conviction, to... fucking it, everything is legal.
But 'we have everything', except that everybody is
2- #MakingADeal because we need to collect evidence in 'whatever legal way'?
Are you fucking kidding me?
None of you have a problem with that?
3-More venting later...
4-That compound that 'we blew up', did Trump speak out against that? If yes, please link me to it. If not, why not? Aren't the 'white hats' in control now? Why are we hiding evidence?
5-And if there is no condemnation and no talk, doesn't that mean that:

I chose to watch reruns of Star Trek Deep Space 9 instead of getting in my usual Twitter dose. Now for you non-trekkies you need to know that the whole ST franchise is based on a world that has solved the problems of racism, poverty, crime and all other issues that plague us 1/
So in season 3 episode 11 & 12 the crew is transported back in time to the 21st century, before all those problems were solved. The year was 2024 and people who didn't have jobs or a place to live were put in sanctuary cities. Not the Sanctuary city we know but a walled off 2/
City where you are promised help finding work and housing but it never happens.

Why am I telling y'all about this? It reminds me of where we are today. Those suffering and those standing by need to find common ground and work together to make the world a better place

I ought to be delighted that Jean-Luc Picard is returning.

But there's always the danger that the whole show will be Junior Lieutenant Picard; the one who avoided the Nausicaan. #StarTrek
Star Trek has had an enduring problem: playing it safe, avoiding nasty consequences, cheating death and grief of their consequence.

The whole of Voyager should've been "Year of Hell". Instead, we got a space drama/sitcom, and Moore made BSG.
Of course there've been some good episodes. Some *great* episodes.

But Star Trek peaked with mid-to-late TNG and DS9, and the rest was stale gagh.

Transcription of Patrick Stewart's #StarTrek statement which was released as an image, for people using screen readers:

β€œI will always be very proud to have been a part of 'Star Trek: The Next Generation', but when we wrapped that final movie in the spring of 2002,
I truly felt my time with Star Trek had run its natural course. It is, therefore, an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him.
Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over.

During these past years, it has been humbling to hear stories about how The Next Generation brought people comfort, saw them through difficult periods in their lives or how the example of Jean-Luc inspired so many

I'll send my Tweets to @Penn myself, @WilliamShatner. They tenured me for this work.

This is my lane -- I have a book coming out in the spring on this very topic.

Go ahead & block me like everyone else you disagree with. I'll still be a #StarTrek fan.
We are professors of children's literature. It is a real shame when a icon of science fiction like William Shatner characterizes Black women professors as trolls, simply because we have informed opinions that he disagrees with.

I'm neither hurt nor surprised, just disappointed.
I was sincerely hoping for more progress. Star Trek taught me to be optimistic. But this -- this is the worst timeline.
