Anyone Watched Star Trek: Preaching (Discovery)?

I watched the entire season. TORRENTED. No way I will pay for their politically correct dreck.

They have nice subliminal nods to the rest of the franchise and even to the seriously underrated "Enterprise" series. Even incorporated classic TOS series bridge sound effects into the background noises.

But too pompous exposition about social issues and idealism. Weird, silly, fantastical plots. The mirror universe story arc felt fantastical. Star Trek always made even far fetched scenarios somewhat plausible if you allow this and that but they went 10x beyond that just to over-use movie grade special effects.

It's been called "too gritty" but that's not the issue I have with Discovery. Rather the opposite. Too perfect, too manicured, too "woke for 2018".

Just to be clear I was never a "trekkie" or whatever they call them. I used to enjoy the show but was never into it to the point that I knew all the ins/outs of it.  I watched it 2x and than bailed on it. I torrented it as well.  No way am I paying jack, I already pay to much to Verizon for the net.
 
I cant deal with the all SJW crap. Openly gay characters, all this miscegenation crap going on, all this feminist crap. You can keep it. Its bad enough that every single commercial and TV show has black men and white women in them. Do I really want to watch more of this crap in my spare time? NOPE.

I think they have gone to far with it. Just like they ruined Star Wars, same deal.
