This just says “franchise” and nothing about films, despite listing franchises known for films.
Let’s mix it up a little with Ender’s Game, or a bit more with Pern (which hasn’t been adapted), or a lot more with the Wheel of Time (yes, there are science fiction elements that are even plot-relevant).
@jsfs@OnionSoup I loved Ender’s Game and was excited to read the sequels but I guess I was way too young during my attempt. Felt like I tumbled into a pit of quick sand and was buried with the prose. Have thought a couple times about reading them as an adult but hard to commit to it knowing what I do about Card’s politics nowadays.
@FightingMongoos@jsfs I was early twenties when I read the sequels. They could have been good stories if he had a better editor that convinced him to cut out a lot of the belabored pseudo-philosophical crap.
There was good social-commentary in there from the main plotlines without him trying too hard (and failing) to sound deep.
@OnionSoup I liked the miniseries and first season but my gawd it got convoluted and dumb. I hate-watched it the rest of the way through and was totally unsatisfied with the ending. Felt like they tried too hard to be grim-dark and anti-Trek.
@OnionSoup in my mind, it gets lumped in with Trek, being Seth’s love tribute to Trek.
in it’s purest form, much like “Galaxy Quest” it’s Trek Fan Fiction. This particular Fan, just so happened to have a studio development deal, and access to production resources.
