WORCESTER, MA – Local man James Sanderson said in a press conference today that he thinks Star Trek: Discovery is “trying too hard to be P.C.” by placing women of color at the center of the series. He specifically mentioned characters like Sonequa Martin-Green’s Michael Burnham and Michelle Yeoh’s Philippa Georgiou.
The conference was held at Sanderon’s place of employment, the local comic book and collectibles shop Intergalactic Comics.
“I like Star Trek, but they’re just pandering. I mean, everyone loves Kirk and Picard, right? What’s so bad about that?” Sanderson said while repositioning a signed photo of the character Nyota Uhura (Nichelle Nichols).
“I’m not against representation or women, but why do they have to shove it down our throats?” he continued.
“I understand that Georgiou is supposed to be like a strong, female leader or whatever, but she’s just not as authoritative as someone like Kirk. Or even Pike,” Sanderson said while standing in front of a Captain Janeway action figure.
Sanderson concluded by commenting that, “Burnham is supposed to have learned Vulcan logic, but women are so emotional. I don’t get it.”
