I just want some confirmation from another set of eyes on this one.
New details of the in development series ST: Discovery have emerged…
The main item I was focusing on was this: The series will explore an incident mentioned in the 1960s series. (In the 1969 episode “Whom Gods Destroy,” there’s a reference to a war the Federation was fighting about 15 years earlier.)
Now, for anyone not in the know, that incident is the Four Years War (Federation vs Klingon Empire). Garth of Izar was the hero of that war. The fan film production of Prelude to Axanar is a direct story about Garth and the Four Years War. Now at one point Paramount tried to shut down the Axanar fan film with a bogus copyright infringement quit. And now we learn they are producing a series that is a direct comparison to the Prelude to Axanar fan flick.
Is it just me here? Someone tell me I am not a crack pot.
