I'm bummed about Rene Auberjonois. I knew him first as Clayton Endicot III, but he'll always be Odo in my heart. Odo was always my favorite character on DS9 for no particular reason.
He had a very distinct voice that I always recognized and enjoyed when I heard it coming out of an animated mouth.

a tv series apparently? with michelle yeoh. cant find anything news wise that isnt from last year though
Pretty much. Personally, I think it might have been an okay idea a year ago, but that ship's sailed. I'm really not interested in a series that takes place in the year between Discovery Seasons, which this would pretty much have to do.

It's not the most exciting idea to me, but Michelle Yeoh is great. Hopefully it'll keep the Klingon story going where Discovery left off.

No. We've had too much of that, especially given [gestures at world in general]. I want to see the shiny utopia TNG era Federation right now.
Then I've got 7 seasons I can point you at. I want the Federation that's willing to commit genocide and whose sanctimony is hypocritical bullshit. Lucky for me, I'm getting what I want

I honestly think that DS9 showed the Federation as it was. It was people trying to be better than their nature. And in places like Earth and other core worlds, it was easy to do, but on the out skirts and when they were truly at war, it became more realistic and pragmatic. TNG showed the Utopia of the Federation in the same light, but it didn't do overtly.
Star Fleet sending commando squads into sovereign empires to destroy potential weapons.
Star Fleet being infiltrated and taken over by alien parasites.
Star Fleet starting an inquisition to find traitors.
Star Fleet condemning Picard for not destroying the entire Borg race
Star Fleet designing pure combat ships to fight the Borg.
Star Fleet working with a Klingon captain right after he destroyed all the life on an entire planet.
I am sure that we can find a dozen more examples from TNG, but these are all off the top of my head. If they spent more time on Federation worlds other than Earth or on the Flagship, I am sure that the utopia would have been shown for what it really was.
