Star Trek Discovery, Star Trek Next Generation and the F Word
I'm not stupid, I know nearly every show out there uses the F word but I was kind of turned off when two characters on Star Trek Discovery used the F word. In Star Trek? I laughed and laughed.
In the middle ages, "by God's bone" was vulgar, but it sounds so stupid now. I'm guessing in a few hundred years the F word will sound stupid and old-fashioned too. Hey I may be wrong, after all fart has endured for hundreds and hundreds of years and shit has been around for a while.
It just sounded so wrong and weird and un-trekkish. But maybe the fractious crew members needed to swear a little to hold the audience. They certainly didn't need to do that for Star Trek Next Generation.
It was just strange how stupid this use of profanity actually sounded in a futuristic setting.I have written some exciting easy-read fantasy adventure novels, but they are not set in our era, so I have been careful to avoid word usage that depicts the novels as earthly or of a particular era. This was not easy and there are probably things I missed. Feel free to download the entire series - its only US$3 for all 4 books as one download, and check it out. You can see by the fantastic ratings and reviews on the 4 individual books that this series is great and worth the read. Here is the link:
