There's a trailer for Star Trek: Discovery!

An actual realfax trailer, not the bullshit teaser crap that they put up last time! This one has actors! Speaking lines! In costume and makeup! This show might actually happen sometime!

Okay, while the excitement is still real and hasn't yet again been replaced by a gnawing sense of dread and the certainty that no other Star Trek will ever be what Deep Space Nine was to me...

Dear CBS:

Please, for the love of all that's holy, don't fuck this up.

The world has kind of gone to shit, lately, and I could really use having a Star Trek (no, the movies don't count - the movies, to me, have never counted) to look to for hope. Also, you've delayed so long that you're once again going to be coming out around my birthday, so for my birthday, I would very much like you to not fuck this up.

Love, Me.

So, friends - what do YOU want from the new series? And how much do you think your tiny little hearts are going to be crushed and broken by the reality that we shall inevitably experience come "sometime in the fall?" And what the fuck is up with those "Klingons," anyway?

Edited to Add: For my first specific request, I would like this tweet to be some kind of stupid joke. Because that shit looks like their redesigned Klingons got really drunk and saw Tom Cruise's new The Mummy movie and got some kind of bizarre resurrection idea and no fucking way am I putting up with that kind of bullshit.

Oh god, it took them all of ten minutes to poke a hole in my enthusiasm. This going to be a nightmare, isn't it?

Dear Fancy-Pants Neighbor,

Under most circumstances it would really annoy me that you had your landscaper tearing out your still-blossoming spring bulbs yesterday because that's a serious waste and it makes me sad, but since I was able to snag a bunch of the ones he'd left laying on the sidewalk and hustle them home to an empty planter on my balcony and a day later it looks like I'll probably have a number of cute little bluebells for a little while and possibly some hyacinths (which hadn't even opened yet, you monster), I guess some degree of thanks are in order.

Sincerely,
Your neighbor who hates watching plants die


Dear Cat,

I know you hate your e-collar (aka Cone of Shame). I know it makes you miserable and sad, and you don't understand why you can't lick your leg. The thing is, you had surgery. Remember that day when we took you to the scary place and then when you came home you were really wobbly and drunk and sore? Yeah. They had to cut a big tumor out of your back leg. You can't lick your leg because we'd like you to not tear out the sutures and reopen the incision. If you manage not to tear or otherwise damage anything before then, you should be able to have the sutures removed this Saturday, and then we can all go back to life as usual.

Until then, please try not to knock the guard-wall off your litter box and then forget where your fuzzy butt is supposed to be in relation to the box, get litter on your collar, or, worse, get poo on your collar. None of us have any fun when you do these things. None of us.

Sincerely,
Your Humans

Dear Santa Bryan Fuller:

I've been a very good girl and I have been a loyal viewer of your shows (we can talk later about my reasons for only having actually seen a few episodes of Hannibal, but suffice to say I was a devoted fan of the show anyway, and did everything I could to support the social media campaigns and whatnot to save it), and I can't wait for American Gods, but I have a few requests, sir, for when you get around to the new Star Trek series, which I'm told is now officially called Star Trek: Discovery. These are, of course, only my personal opinions, but since they're based on watching the entirety of TOS, TNG, and DS9 at least once as well as watching about half of VOY and, well, eleven episodes of ENT (I'll come back to that in a minute), not to mention a good portion of the old and new movies, I think I know whereof I speak when I talk about this franchise. So. My requests, in no particular order: )
