On August 4, 2018, Sir Patrick Stewart, who played Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation, stunned fans around the world when he announced he would be returning to a new Star Trek series, reprising his role as the beloved captain.

Now, it seems production is moving forward on the revival.


Stewart tweeted out the first look behind the scenes of the series' writing process.


Stewart's tweet shows a picture of himself working around the writers table with the caption:

"The journey has begun. Kirsten Beyer, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, Diandra Pendleton-Thompson, James Duff, and yours truly. #StarTrek"

Trekkies were, as expected, overjoyed.













Of course, there was also the question of what the whole group was looking at.




As is so often the case with fandoms, many people had some suggestions for the new series.






Some ideas were better than others...



The series is expected to premiere on CBS or its streaming service CBS All-Access in 2019.

Until then, we'll just have to be content watching Stewart's announcement over and over again.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
