Shame and Guilt in the Artist

"Now. I know this might sound a little interesting Shame and guilt in the oddest because there is such a wide array of opinion about these subjects in in the arts. You have a group of people that literally believe that because we are human and because we are communicating to humans through arts that we should try to use whenever possible. Shame and guilt and in all the other things that are inside us. But we're just talking about shame and guilt and this show and use it on a regular basis and in fact Use it all the time practically and then of course you have another group that say You know issue used sparingly or. Should this be used strategically. You know where we're has them real relevancy so that you can still remain an artist or you can still have something that's artistic and not just a rant or rave or you know a complaint or something like that and then of course you still have another group top of that that believe that somehow in some way we should try to put together things arts whether it's nonfiction frictional. Whatever doubt don't really have a lotta bearing in our lives or maybe even a lot of bearing in people's lives in general they just stories period. You know or like a science fiction writer. I know tells me all the time mark now this is real so i mean i don't need to be gene roddenberry and try to lose every single thing that's happening on earth in order to make my science fiction relevant. He makes he makes fun of the word relevant a lot. I mean he has a point. i don't wanna go as far as he he's gone to where You know he can't do anything. It is writing ille- resembles anything that happens on. Earth happens with human beings because everybody any anyway marked. So what's the big deal

Star Trek: Discovery: What to expect from the new season

"With. Michelle. Paradise Co Executive Producer and Co show runner of Discovery Welcome. Michelle, thank you. Thanks for having me. Excited to be here. So after two seasons of exploring the nooks and crannies of the Kirk, era star Trek discovery catapults nine hundred years into the future season three. It's a huge departure for the show. What can we expect to see from this big shake? A. Lot of new things. The world, the world that they come into is very, very different than the one they left there it's actually nine hundred and thirty years ahead. So what that does is it takes us a just beyond all established cannon. So really in terms of storytelling, it's fresh snow it's. We have whatever the world is that we that we wanna make of it so. I think people will be excited to see. We've got some new technologies that we're going to be introducing the season. We've got new characters that will be introducing the world as I mentioned is in is an Kinda different state and we can get into that in a second. But the thing I wanNA highlight is even as we're going nine hundred and thirty years ahead even as we're going beyond established cannon What is what was super important to us throughout the development of season three s make sure that we're honoring existing cannon. So the species, their relationships, all of those sorts of things that have been established on all of the series that came before us are things that we are continuing to honor. technology were continuing to honor even as we push it forward. The Federation. STARFLEET. All of these things that mean so much to everyone who loves track we continue honor those but going into the future allows us to look at these things in a new way and so. One of the things that people may find is That's species that we know from a series past maybe we interact with them in a different way. This season may be alliances shifted of folks are friends who didn't used to be friends or enemies who didn't use to be enemies. Going so far into the future allows us to do all of those sorts of things. And the new kosher honor show runner and congrats on the promotion What changes would you bring to the show? Oh Well I don't necessarily bringing changes. It's really I mean I I started in season two when I joined the show joined about halfway through season two. And toward the back of the season started working very closely with Alex Anyway as we were finishing up season two. So you know I feel like I've gained a good understanding of what he wants from discovery and you know as a group in season two, we are still finding. Really. What is the what is the right tonal mix for this show Because you know any season, one of the show is still kind of finding itself in that way and I feel like in season two, we really hit our stride with that. In terms of we've got the action adventure in via fax. We've got the character moments the emotion we've got you know fighting in. All sorts of mystery in all of the elements of the show I feel like in season to found the right balance. So for me coming in and working with him, it's really about maintaining that kind of balance in every given episode doing what this show does. So well, which is letting are actors, directors and everyone in Toronto shine in the way that they do and You know really just continuing to to try and. Make. The best possible version of tracker we we Cam Michelle. So well, let's get to the show. You you sort of teased trailers have shown and teased a grimmer future one where the federation doesn't necessarily exist or isn't around anymore hats that changed the show and I know you talked about how you want to stay faithful to the spirit of Star Trek. But we'll talk about the differences in how you're. able to play around with that. Sure. So to be clear, the federation is still there it's just It's been diminished in that something that are characters will come to discover as they go through the season and they'll They'll begin to learn the reasons why that happened and the the why of that, and then the drive to bring the federation together again, really becomes their main drive of the entire season. Ends when we looked at going so far ahead into the future We thought well, what what is what are the big things that could have about this world and that seemed like a natural place to go and. It seems like you know if we are going that far ahead, what what do our characters have? What do they bring to this new future that makes them uniquely able to have a significant impact on this new future and when you talk about a world where the federation has been diminished in some way, it's it's still out there just so everyone is clear. It's still out there. It hasn't gone away but but if it's not as strong as it used to be you have you have Burnham in Seru and all of our heroes. On discovery coming from a time when the federation was strong when it was the bedrock of everything and they grew up with that and they grew up with that feeling of security and optimism and hope and if they're coming into a world in which those things are are struggle for people, then our heroes are uniquely poised to help bring that kind of hope and bring that kind of optimism into this new future and inspire others around them, and so it it just felt like a great opportunity to be able to position them from center with all of that gun. The show has last two seasons wrestled with Continuity Canon, and making sure everything's working out in instep with previous series but hell freeing is it to get out of the constraints of cannon and really. Kind of go go out, go free with with what you really want to explore with star trek dare. I, say to go boldly where no one has gone before I did that I totally did sorry. it is. It has been very freeing. You know when? I when I joined the show in season two, we were right in the middle of that. The middle part of how do we answer these questions about hike that we knew from the original series? How do we answer some of these questions about spock widened stock never mentioned having a sister, all of these sorts of things and so that by the way that was really fun figuring out how all of that was going to work and how it fit into what was existing was really a lot of fun from story perspective. And now being beyond that is also fun and one of the really cool things that we've gotten to do is taken. We've gotten to take relationships that had been established previously, and then kind of change those up a little bit So the. You know the species you might expect to be friends may not necessarily be friends in this new future or vice versa It allows us to explore those new relationships explore species in new way explore worlds in new ways. So an into an again I, do want to say that that with all of that, we are definitely honoring the cannon that came before we're not just. To sticking things lender and tossing them all our place where we've been, we've been really thoughtful about If we're going to play with something, how do we play with? How do we adjust it? How do we shift those relationships? And do it in a way that will feel both familiar and new same time for audience Gotcha. Your Star Trek has always been a reflection of modern society, the avast this from season to season. But given the fact that there's a pandemic going on. There's a discussion about the role of race in America there's climate change field disasters take your pick of issues right now. Unfortunately but it turns discovery and season three. How does discovery reflect what's going on today? Well I can answer that in a couple of ways. In terms of just the the pandemic itself Alex I've talked about this. We could not have imagined when we wrote and shot season three of the show how much it would resonate today because obviously no one could have. Seen this coming a year year and a half ago when we were first working on all of this thematically in season three where we're looking at a lot about connection and disconnection, and that's very much where the world is right now. So I think it it resonates quite unexpectedly just just in terms of the stories that we're telling the thematic residents of those stories. And then in terms of things like are characters You Know Star Trek. has always always valued diversity and know gene roddenberry started it back on the original series having a diverse cast at a time when diversity was not the thing one did on television so. Making sure that we honor that continue that we're continuing that with the introduction of some new characters this season. and. Making sure that that we honor those characters, those voices and that we represent those on the show is super important to us. At C, Net, we've always asked now what? So that's what we call our new series of conversations about the future that is shaping up as we speak I'm Brian Cullin everyone has an interview series, but we try to be different posing a problem driving toward a concise answer and doing it all in about fifteen minutes that we don't waste your time. Check it out at senior dot com slash now what? And speaking of those characters gave update on where some of the crew Michael Berman's through what are they as the season begins. Sure. So when we begin the season or characters have are just coming through the Wormhole, which is where we left them. In episode two, Fourteen last year so they will they will come through land somewhere. I. Can't tell you where they will land or what they'll do. They'll get their or or will spoil that but I I can tell you that one of the first things they'll be looking for is did they achieve their goal because going through the wormhole was about saving life from season to? And, making sure that there is sentient life in this in this new future that they ventured is is the first question Alaska of course, the answer is, yes that's not a spoiler or we wouldn't have season three because there would be no people So they did achieve their goal. I can tell you that and and then it's a question of. Who are they now and what what this new season gives us opportunity to do is really explore all of our characters in a in a much deeper way. You know when they left season two, they left everything behind anyone who was not on this ship that was in their orbit their family, their friends everything that was familiar to them. They left behind and so they are very much a they're a family unit and connected in. A really new and much deeper way when they come into this new future because they are all they have and. Everything else was left behind so. They're kind of strangers in a strange land figuring out this new world as they go and and that gives us choices to learn a lot more about about who they are to challenge them in new ways to see how each of these characters individually will grow. And some of that will come out with a new characters we introduce You know this is not a spoiler he's in the trailer. Everybody knows David Jolla is joining us this season as as book, and you know here's a character who has grown up in this new world who's going to become a kind of a guide for Burnham once she lands and she's in this new future. and. Seeing him challenge her. We will get to learn new things about her and as our characters face unique challenges. Over the course of the season we'll get to learn new things about all of them. Great. We saw Harry Mudd we saw Sarah saw a bunch of figures from past star. Trek shows in previous uses discovery are can you tease or can we expect any other release cameos or you just sort of breaking free from can completely in just starting with something completely new? Well, I can't. I can't give anything away 'cause. Away but you know a lot of this season really is about. Seeing what this new future is all about and seeing what new characters come in So you know in nine hundred, thirty years ahead so There's a there's quite a time gap there I do WANNA mention I I don't know if you. Earlier of saying about the new characters, we also have the characters of. Deer Gray who are in the season Bluto Barrio Alexander. Tremendous and speaking to diversity of all when we talk about diversey on camera that's They are also representative of that as a non binary and transgender in real life, and then also being a non binary and a transgender character on cameras, well with these characters that they represent. So. that. All of that has been very, very important to us. Great in terms of the tech obviously seen at the tech site talk with. You. That's that's great. We love that you love seeing A. A little bit about that. What what are some of the if interesting fats of? This 'cause there are a lot of fascinating concepts you played with the previous using network time travel was a big deal last year what what what tech we serve guys embrace for this next season. There is some new tax that we will explore the season. I hesitate to say only because I don't WanNa give it away but but I will say that again in the tradition of honoring what has come before and then also pushing that forward. There are there are some new tech, the elements that we will see the season You know the the ways in which people interact with their ships might be a little bit different You know certainly there would have pollution in the the technology we use the things we hold the things we interact with on ships, all of those sorts of things and you'll start to see. Some of those things right away in the premiere episode of Season Three. So there have been a wave of Scifi shows that you know ground themselves in hard science I'm scared that something you consider star trek which Kinda plays a little bit fast loose with tack at like how real some that check is that is this something you guys are considering or you thought about a four season three already beyond it's something that we have absolutely done. And I I can't speak to. A to the season's when I wasn't here. But we have we have a science consultant Dr Aaron McDonald's She is fabulous. She is an astrophysicist and some Some audience members might be familiar with her she's She does a lot of star trek events and things like that where she talks about the science of Star Trek and we work very very closely with her on all of these things, and so if we have a science or tech thing that we wanna do you know as as writers will make it up and play in the sci-fi realm and we rely on her to help us. Tailor that to make something that obviously these things are not possible right now but we want to get them as close to future possible as we can. So she helps us with all of that. She gives us you know how many kilometers per second is something going? You know all of these sorts of things she helps with So yeah, for sure we we know that a lot of actual scientists watch the show and. We don't want anyone watching the show and going up man that's insane. So Aaron helps us with that guy well I ask this for most of the folks who deal the show I haven't had a chance to ask you. So I'll ask him in terms of the tech that's available in Star Trek. What which which bit of tech would you like to see in real life which would you could actually see yourself using own my gosh? Transporter. I would love to have a transport but I would I would want it to be a transporter that wouldn't just take me from here to the grocery store, but I wanNA transport could take me to to visit my loved ones or to go someplace else especially. Now since we you know it's very tricky to get on planes and. Do things like that I I would. I would want to I would want to transporter yet that that's a good one especially nowadays transport. Yeah. He can get around TSA airplanes in general totally like that Yeah I just need that pad built living room just walk into it. You go where you WANNA go. Yeah, that's that's it. For me. I would just say cheers of guest stars and notes it's nine hundred years in the but a Q. is not you know he doesn't age is pretty much more. Sane. Just out there for you kids shows up. Okay now. Awesome. Okay. Wow Michelle thank you for your time. Really appreciate season three of star trek discovery premiers on, Thursday yeah. So much and thank you everyone for watching.

"And so gene roddenberry negotiated a contract and paramount paid out the nose for them. Because only thing Jean had to say is I. Don't like the show. This is in Star Trek. visit me and the ratings were just fell out of the sky. It would have been terrible I mean that's. That's as good business to me to be like. They know they need you. Go for it, you know. They know they need you before they have to have you. Lean him over barrel shown the fifty states. That's that's what roddenberry did. It's undisclosed. How much money made, but I'm sure it's a bundle. And the funny thing is after all these negotiations. It said that gene wasn't even really excited to do the show. He was more or less looking forward to retirement so now the gene is on the show. There's one a big issue. One big elephant in the room is we could say. The big elephant in the room. was, a gene was an alcoholic. And he was on opioids. He's very sick because he will spend decades. Drinking and drug use so the studios like dude. You got cleaned your act up before we started show. Once. He decided to do that. And he went to Rehab. He got on and get himself clean. He had assemble a group of people and the people. He chose very smart. He chose a lot of the original series. Writers and producers because one thing that I've been reading about gene is loyalty was the utmost importance gene. In that loyalty was rewarded, so he brought a lot of these people on. And they were great, and that makes super smart idea to do that. But however was one big other elephant in the room besides jeans. Bad Habits that finally got over. When I say this you're GONNA be like. ha ha ha. Is that all. Star, Trek fans. Were pissed.

Here you gene, or gene shoemaker trained, astronauts and founded a new science born on April twenty eighth nineteen twenty eight Schumaker was one of the twentieth. Century's? Great minds, his work on impact craters affected, everything from Nasr's Apollo missions to the dinosaur extinction debate for his contributions to human knowledge, he was awarded the national medal of science by then president George H W Bush in nineteen Ninety-two, but a different honor eluded him shoemaker studied the moon from afar, but he often dreamed of climbing into a spacesuit and walking on its surface. Sadly, he never got the chance Addison's disease crushed his hopes of becoming an astronaut, but in nineteen Ninety-seven some of his ashes were laid to rest near the moon southern poll that made him the first and to date the only person to ever receive a lunar burial. It was a poignant epilogue to the man's career. Schumaker was a geologist by training and craters were one of his great passions. He helped confirm that the famous Barringer crater near flagstaff, Arizona crater that's five hundred seventy feet or one hundred seventy three meters. Deep was made by an asteroid impact. He also championed the hypothesis that another such impact killed last non avian dinosaurs sixty six million years ago and by mapping some of the craters on our moon. He revolutionized our understanding of its geology in nineteen sixty one the United States geological surveys set up an Astra geology research program shoemaker often considered the founding father of Astra geology was chosen to lead. It NASA would enlist his services to shoemaker joined future. Apollo astronaut on field trips to Barringer crater and other sites where he trained them to collect rock samples a perhaps seemingly simple skill set. But one would let them eventually bring home the first moon rocks humans ever saw and thus making all kinds of research possible. His work was instrumental to the discovery of the shoemaker Levy nine comet which struck Jupiter in one thousand nine hundred four one of the comments co-discoverers was Eugene's wife and fellow scientist Carolyn shoemaker cumulatively, gene. And Caroline discovered. One thousand one hundred twenty five asteroids and thirty two comments, but on July eighteenth, nineteen Ninety-seven. The couple was involved in a tragic car accident though Caroline survived. Gene was killed. The very next day shoemakers former student Carolyn Porco, devised a fitting tribute, a planetary scientist at the university of Arizona Porco learned that her mentor was going to be cremated. So she spearheaded an effort to put an ounce. That's twenty eight grams of his ashes aboard NASA lunar prospector spacecraft the cost of sending things into space can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars per pound in terms of time and energy and research. And so although physically small that single ounce is a huge tribute polycarbonate earn capsule was built by Celestis these same company that sent ashes of Star Trek creator, gene Roddenberry into orbit wrapped around shoemakers. Capsule was a brass foil ribbon bearing a picture of the Barringer crater and thematic quote from Romeo and Juliet. And when he shall die take him in cut him out in little stars. And he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun. With the precious cargo in tow, the spacecraft launched at Cape Canaveral Florida on January sixth nineteen ninety eight more than a year later the vessel whose objective had been to hunt for water with deliberately crashed near the lunar. South pole shoemaker's ashes went down with it. Celestis hopes to enter other human remains on the moon at some point. But for the moment, she maker has the place to himself Carolyn shoemaker said in the nineteen ninety eight press release it brings a little closure in a way to our feelings.
