CBS Announces Star Trek Series Focusing On Section 31 Starring Michelle Yeoh [url][/url] Following a report from the Hollywood trades back in November, today CBS made the news of a Section 31 show with Michelle Yeoh official. This morning CBS announced that a new live-action series was in development for CBS All Access starring Michelle Yeoh, who has had a recurring role in Star Trek: Discovery. According to CBS the untitled series “will expand on Yeoh’s current role as a member of Starfleet’s Section 31 division, a shadow organization within the Federation, on Star Trek: Discovery.” The Section 31 series is the latest expansion of Star Trek on television. In addition to the already released Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Short Treks, CBS has officially announced the development of a new show focusing on Jean-Luc Picard featuring the return of Sir Patrick Stewart and an animated comedy, Lower Decks, being developed by Emmy Award winner Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty). There are also reports of other shows in development including a more kid-friendly animated series and a live-action youth-oriented Starfleet Academy show. I check the IMDb episode list every month or so looking for good ratings. Only one above 8 (barthood) and another almost 8 (flanders ladder) in last four seasons. I keep lowering my standards and look for any above 7 now. THOH usually has one good skit. Back in season 20 almost half were above 7. Don't forget to lower your IMDb rating if you haven't done so lately! You will find articles about Orphan Black describing the process. Countdown to DCEU fanboi gloat spam: 3-2-1… Good explanation: [url][/url] [African-American pianist Don Shirley (played by Mahershala Ali)] Hence the existence and spectacular Golden Globes success of Green Book, co-written by Nick Vallelonga, the real-life son of the black piano man’s real-life chauffeur. The other day, Vallelonga, along with Farrelly and Brian Hayes Currie, won a Golden Globe for their script, which under ordinary circumstances would be a good sign that they might end up being nominated for an Oscar. But that hope appeared to be dashed when, only a couple of days after the Globes telecast, somebody unearthed a 2015 tweet by Vallelonga that instantly went viral. In it, he supported a Twitter statement by Donald Trump that thousands of American Muslims had celebrated 9/11. Wrote Vallelonga: “100% correct. Muslims in Jersey City cheering when towers went down. I saw it, as you did, possibly on local CBS news.” Trump’s statement was indeed true, and not just about 9/11. Muslims have applauded every major terrorist act since. But you’re not supposed to say so. Predictably, Vallelonga’s tweet immediately got him into hot water. One of the companies that produced Green Book, Participant Media, issued a statement calling the tweet “offensive, dangerous, and antithetical to Participant Media’s values.” Dangerous? In reporting on this dustup, the mainstream media were quick to describe Trump’s statement as a “false claim” (The Guardian), as “widely discredited” (BBC), or as “debunked” (Daily Mail). Unfortunately but inevitably, Vallelonga issued a mea culpa. First he deleted his Twitter account, then he put out a groveling apology: “I want to apologize. I spent my life trying to bring this story of overcoming differences and finding common ground to the screen, and I am incredibly sorry to everyone associated with Green Book. I especially deeply apologize to the brilliant and kind Mahershala Ali, and all members of the Muslim faith, for the hurt I have caused. I am also sorry to my late father who changed so much from Dr Shirley’s friendship and I promise this lesson is not lost on me. Green Book is a story about love, acceptance and overcoming barriers, and I will do better.” What was Vallelonga saying here? Note what he didn’t say: he didn’t say that, after giving the matter serious consideration and consulting the media archives, he’s decided he was mistaken about having seen Muslims cheering on 9/11. No, the point here is presumably that, even if some Muslims did rejoice in the events of that day, it’s wrong to acknowledge such facts. It’s apparently OK, then, for Muslims to cheer 9/11, but not OK to say that they did. In addition, one key point was missing from Vallelonga’s apology. Yes, Ali identifies as a Muslim. But he’s an Ahmadi Muslim. "Regular" Muslims don’t consider Ahmadi Muslims to be "real" Muslims. They’re too peaceable. In many Muslim countries, it’s illegal for Ahmadis to identify as Muslims. They are routinely subject to official persecution and mass slaughter in Islamic countries. “Regular” Muslims cheer the murder of Ahmadi Muslims. Last May, a Sunni mob tore down an Ahmadi mosque in Sialkot, Pakistan, and afterwards cheered a local cleric who maintained that he had ransacked it. In 2011, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that “hundreds of onlookers cheer[ed]” the savage slaughter of three Ahmadis by a group of regular Muslims.
