When I was younger, I’ll never forget when this movie came out. It was ridiculous.
Fans were thrilled about Star Trek IV, which really ended up being what we would now a woke Hollywood attempt at indoctrination.
The film was about the crew of the Enterprise returning to Earth to deal with the consequences of what took place in Star Trek III. When they return it’s discovered the “planet in grave danger from an alien probe attempting to contact now-extinct humpback whales. The crew travel to Earth’s past to find whales who can answer the probe’s call.”
Director Lenord Nimoy (Spock) and producer Harve Bennett thought it would be a great idea to craft a movie with an environmental message that had no clear-cut villain. The deal was William Shatner (Captain Kirk), and Nimoy had to approve the script.
After Shatner approved it, indoctrinating movie production began.
It appears in the 80s, Shatner didn’t have a problem being part of the indoctrination, but he’s struggling now that he’s on the chopping block.
Shatner is being canceled or Star Trek is being canceled over “gendered phrases.” Kirk’s famous tagline, “to bodly go where no man has gone before” is being canceled.
The famous Hollywood actor is furious.
“Presentism at work yet again. Why start at Trek? Isn’t it better to start at the beginning and redo foundation material such as the Magna Carta, religious writings, works of Shakespeare before worrying about a silly TV show opening that reflects social commentary of the time? If people are offended by 6 seconds of dialogue recorded in 1966 without a modicum of understanding of the social issues at the time there’s bigger issues that they need to deal with first – like educating themselves,” Shatner wrote.
