Revelation: Axanar

There’s a new sheriff in town, and its name is Axanar. Okay, okay, so that’s a mixed metaphor. Simile? Analogy? Whatever.  What’s important is that Trekkies have something new to love about Star Trek again. It’s been a while, and I’m pretty sure most of us have the DTs. I grew up with Star Trek. … Read more…
