Star Trek makes Stacey Abrams president of United Earth - and stokes conservative anger

The Georgia gubernatorial candidate and voting rights campaigner Stacey Abrams has been made president – of United Earth.

The honour, which a leading conservative website said Abrams did not deserve, was bestowed by the Paramount+ TV series Star Trek: Discovery, in its season four finale.

Abrams is a self-confessed Star Trek superfan. In 2019, she told the New York Times she binged on episodes during her last run for governor.

“I love Voyager and I love Discovery and of course I respect the original,” she said, “but I revere The Next Generation.”

Michelle Paradise, executive producer of Star Trek: Discovery, told Variety the show decided it needed a figure of suitable gravitas.

“When the time came to start talking about the president of Earth,” she said, “it seemed like, ‘Well, who better to represent that than her?”

9. President of Earth Abrams

I like the sound of that.

As for the repub whiners, get back to us when you've sent dump to jail, along with the other architects and enablers of the insurrection, and sworn off the traitors in your midst. Oh yeah, you would have no party left.

11. "...stokes conservative anger..."

Because everyone knows Star Trek is Republican territory.

I'm dripping with sarcasm, right now.

14. You Would Not Believe

The negative comments from Trekkies. Most of them older, white males who complain about DISCO being too "woke".

Jaysus - Trek was "woke" before "woke" was cool!
