Some fun preliminary results from my #StarTrek survey. Overall respondents are pretty queer, definitely *don't* like Elon Musk, may slightly prefer cats to dogs, and a significant number seem to only like old Trek.
Have you taken the survey yet? I'm trying to get responses from a diverse audience, including those who don't really like Star Trek. Please take the survey and share it!
My new #podcast Before the Future Came isn't going to be about #StarTrek until the SAG-AFTRA strike ends, so we've pivoted to non-ST utopian #scifi, starting with Nnedi Okorafor's novella Binti: https://beforethefuture.space/podcast/s00e01-binti/
Binti is an amazing work. 🤩 We had a lot of fun digging into the themes (violence & empathy, magic in scifi, and ostracization) and geeking about genre-specific stuff we loved. 🐙
(The ep transcript is running a bit behind, but should be up within the next couple of days!)
Tomasz (aka Mellow_Labs) is a self-confessed Trekkie, but he went on “a DIY adventure through droid design, 3D printing, and electrical engineering” when he briefly switched sides to build his very first droid.
So with #StarTrek being a struck work that shouldn't be promoted during the SAG-AFTRA strike (https://www.sagaftrastrike.org/podcaster-faqs), my new #podcast Before the Future Came is taking a bit of a swerve in its premiere: https://beforethefuture.space/podcast/00b-programming-note-binti/
I'm excited to read Binti and geek about it with my cohosts! We'll keep the original premiere episode in our pocket until the strike ends (hopefully with their demands being met! ✊🏾).

Decided to do a fun #StarTrek thing.
Presenting the Star Trek TV theme bracket!
Vote for your favourite theme music from all the currently released Star Trek TV Shows. (Maybe we'll do movies another time)
This thread will have all the votes for Round 1.
I couldn't decide how to seed it, so I randomised the seeds.
Here is the bracket.
It's called Before the Future Came, and we're examining the ideologies of Star Trek through its eps/films/etc. We're interested in how it portrays (and fails to) its postcapitalist utopian ideals. Us hosts are all socialists, abolitionists, and queer, so discussion should be meaty.
It's not a chronological podcast, and we summarize each work at the top so you don't have to watch alongside. All eps will be transcribed.

Wanted to share one of my favorite StarTrek.com posts ever in case you havent read it: A Look at Afrofuturism in Star Trek: Discovery.
Aaahhhhh! I'm currently QAing the pilot of my new #StarTrek podcast! This pilot won't go out—we were testing the podcast structure and production—but we're scheduled to record our first proper ep on July 3! In addition to hosting: Lucy (https://intertextualities.wordpress.com/) is our editor/producer, Gregory (https://cohost.org/gaw) is our webmaster, and I'm the ep transcriber. 💃🏾
