For quite some time now, there has been a video circulating around Trek fandom by a channel called, Major Grin titled, “The Difference Between TNG and Star Trek Discovery/Short Treks.” This video compares the TNG episode, “Hollow Pursuits” with the Short Trek, “The Trouble with Edward” in an attempt to illustrate why old Trek showed moral compassion in its writing, while modern Trek does not.
The fact that the video produced by Major Grin is heavily edited to fit a certain narrative doesn’t help either, in this new Supplemental, I explain why this comparison is a false equivalence and why the origins video is extremely deceptive.
