If it may not be obvious already I am on a bit of a Star Trek high. It’s been good fun these past few days doodling some fan art and coming up with a joint personal project with Deb – a little motivation for us both to keep us going with the creating.
As such, I was watching a random episode today (Plato’s Stepchildren) and it made me realise just how innocent it all is. I don’t see this as a bad thing though. It’s refreshing to sit and watch something that has a really basic idea as a plot. “Today we’re going to go to this planet and discover random element X.” Seeing something branch out from such a basic starting point and have a story to it without the fast paced twists and turns.
While I enjoy the more in-depth plots, sometimes it’s nice to watch something that doesn’t leave you on a cliff-hanger questioning everything that happened.
But you know something.
It’s the character aspect that I enjoy the most about Star Trek
