Did Star Wars Jump the Shark Or Was It Devoured by Parasites?

And what about Star Trek’s recent turns? The pop culture discussion continues…

I like both Star Wars and Star Trek. I’ve seen all of the Star Wars and Star Trek movies, and while watching the kids, even saw a number of Clone Wars cartoon episodes. I’ve seen most episodes of Star Trek, every series, though I’ve barely been able to watch Star Trek Discovery except the Mirror Universe episodes. I say this so that my criticism is not mistaken for “you just don’t like the franchises”.

And I think modern politics and shifts in storytelling are hurting both science fiction universes.
