Nothing lasts forever.

While Star Trek Continues has been by far the best thing to come out of the Trek universe in decades, the show has fallen into decline. While sfx and production quality has remained impressively high, the writing has taken a hard dive. This episode marks the show shifting from good, compelling SF to didactic , SJW fanfic. The acting is bad, the dialog is painful, and the "social justice" message could not be more blatantly if a problem glasses blue hair was screaming it directly at us through the screen. These issues have been tackled before by Star Trek in ways that still manage to tell a brilliant story (and never fell back on preachy Captain Planet-style dialog).

It's sad to see this show go.
