Does Kylo really deserve to be redeemed? Did he deserve to be Reys love interest?

Vader’s redemption kind of comes out of nowhere. But it doesn’t matter unless you expect a fully realised villain, with many facets and deep characterisation. The Empire might seem like fascist super state, but meaningful comparisons to real historical figures are not really appropriate. It’s just Star Wars.

All the more reason why Trek is the superior Star franchise.

Maybe once, not so much these days.

Difference is modern Trek doesn’t retroactively ruin what came before. At least not for me.

Have you seen the new Picard show?

The newest ST series I’ve seen is DS9.

Probably explains a lot.

I mean the artwork is nice, people are good at what they do. But on the other hand it’s only just far enough into the past so they can stick with the same SW aesthetic.

Let’s be honest. They could’ve set this 4000 years in the past, and they’d still stick with the same SW aesthetic.

Highly doubtful you’ll ever see lightsiders wielding red sabers in the new canon given the new canon’s explanation for how they’re created.

I know all about that. And I hate it. With every single fibre of my absolute being.

Only because you want Jedi to wield red lightsabers.
