Fans of ‘Star Trek’ from around the world are outraged at Paramount’s new decision.
“Star Trek” is a worldwide phenomenon that, like the Federation of the 24th Century, brings people from all over the world together.
Last weekend, London played host to a massive Trek convention that drew fans from across Europe and beyond.
The “Destination Star Trek: London” event drew a “slew of celebrities,” as well as cosplay, lectures, games, and other activities.
The event organizers claim that the 2022 convention, which will take place in October, will be even bigger.
William Shatner, an astronaut and actor, who will be 91 years old at the time, will also be featured.
The original James T Kirk will lead a cast of Trek stars, which can be found on the D:ST website.
While things appeared to be going well for Trek fans in the United Kingdom, there were a few issues.
There has been gnashing of teeth and grumbling since the announcement that “Star Trek: Prodigy” would debut on the Sky platform in 2022.

“Dang it, so we need Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Sky to cover all Star Trek,” one fan remarked after hearing about “Prodigy.”
“Then they completely lose me,” another forum user commented.
“There is no way in hell I’m getting a Sky subscription in my life.”
This business should’ve died a long time ago.”
For non-US viewers, DISCO has moved to Paramount(plus).
