How brilliant is this? Tawny Newsome plays Beckett Mariner, the feisty and defiant ensign who loves to skirt the rules in Star Trek: Lower Decks. On Twitter she’s letting the hater crowd know exactly what she thinks of them, and why not? There are so many who repeatedly predict the demise of the new Star Trek shows, and yet the announcement the other day goes to show that new Star Trek is going very strong indeed. I can only assume that Nerdrotics, Doomcock et al do it for the clicks and therefore the money, rather than out of integrity.
