One of the things that is always set star trek What sets it apart from other sci-fi franchises is that it largely depicts a functional utopia. Newer series like Picard have pushed back this idealism idea a bit – at least partly to create a reality closer to our own, to be able to better reflect it – but the traditional representation The Federation is a post-scarcity socialist society in which pretty much all needs are met by default and the predatory burdens of capitalist existence have been largely alleviated.

nerdy juices get it Consumers the opportunity to toss 250 real human dollars on a pack of algorithmically generated spaceships later this week. (Well, okay: they will actually drop their money a token that serves as a receipt for the spaceships; it’s April 2022, you understand NFTs about as well as you will by this point, right?)

And while all NFT projects from known, beloved entities suck –Hello Kevin Smith– something particularly discouraging in itself Trek to enter this market. For one, it was literally advertised as a wedge franchise for a whole host of other Paramount-branded NFTs (including Nickelodeon, which is just a grotesque idea). But beyond that It’s just such a colossal mismatch with the series’ inherent spirit that its identity is cast into so much gold-pressed latinum. Anyway, congratulations to everyone involved!
