Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams made a guest appearance on the latest episode of Star Trek.
She played the president.
No… not the President of the United States.
Rather, Stacey Abrams acted as “President of the United Earth.”
Does Hollywood still expect us to believe that they’re simply in the business of entertainment without bias or a political agenda?

Yes, that was Stacey Abrams with a cameo on Star Trek Discovery as president of United Earth. A proud Star Trek nerd, Abrams has appeared as a guest on fan shows and has talked extensively about how the show shaped her perspective. #gapol pic.twitter.com/V1HbghDERw

Folks, keep in mind that there are literally tens of thousands of professional actors and actresses.
They could have cast anyone.
And yet… they chose Stacey Abrams… who, to my knowledge, has no acting experience.
And they expect us to still think this is just supposed to be entertainment?
The Hill confirms:
Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) has beamed up to a much higher office, making a cameo as president of the United Earth on the season 4 finale of “Star Trek: Discovery.”
The former state lawmaker is a known fan of the Star Trek brand — she previously hosted a virtual fundraiser with cast members for now-Georgia Sens. Jon Ossoff (D) and Raphael Warnock (D) and took part in a “Trek the vote to victory” event to drum up support for then-Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
But Abrams’s fandom reached warp speed Thursday with the most recent episode of Paramount+’s “Discovery.”
“Nothing to discuss,” Abrams-as-president told Federal Federation President Laira Rillak, played by Chelah Horsdal, towards the end of the episode, according to Deadline.
“United Earth is ready right now to rejoin the Federation, and nothing could make me happier than to say those words,” she added.
Showrunner Michelle Paradise told IndieWire in an interview that she is still in awe that Abrams appeared on the season finale.
“Honestly, the number of times I’ve seen the episode, every time I see her face, I’m like, ‘Wow, that really happened. That’s awesome,’” she said.
Can you imagine the outrage if they had cast Donald Trump as the President of Earth?
Or if they cast Sarah Palin or Marjorie Taylor Greene?
The left would be going insane!
Yet… they have a free pass to cast a failed gubernatorial candidate who falsely claims that she won the Georgia election!
bold of Star Trek to assume Earth would ever be united under President Stacey Abrams https://t.co/0SCi6HNQQo

People in Hollywood are already calling it a “very presidential appearance.”
Ummm… they do know that this is a sci-fi show, right?
This isn’t real.
There’s nothing presidential about it.
Yet, here’s how Deadline covered her acting appearance:
Stacey Abrams may be running again to be Governor of Georgia, but the avowed Star Trek fan makes a pretty good President of United Earth in the 32nd century, as was proven in the Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 finale that launched today.
“Nothing to discuss,” she says to Federation President Laira Rillak (Chelah Horsdal) right near the end of the Michelle Paradise penned and Olatunde Osunsanmi directed episode on Paramount+. “United Earth is ready right now to rejoin the Federation, and nothing could make me happier than to say those words,” Abram’s regal leader adds.
Coming at the end of a vociferous season of the Alex Kurtzman and Paradise co-showrun series and the heart thumping “Coming Home” finale, the surprise cameo by Abrams was treated like a state secret. Yet, at the end of cycle that saw some First Contact and Sonequa Martin-Green’s U.S.S. Discovery captain Michael Burnham and team stop the celestial rampage of the DMA, it made a lot of sense. Add to the fact that this was a pivotal Trekverse season that found the Federation partially rebuilt, it almost seems inevitable and the polar opposite of the infamous Kobayashi Maru
A scenario that found the Discovery stars starstruck.
“I’m still floored when I think about Stacey gracing us with her presence in our Season 4 finale,” Martin-Green told Deadline of the woman widely regarded as having saved American democracy joining Discovery. “We spent so much of our time fanning out and pretending to be cool in her midst,” the Walking Dead alum reveals of herself and cast mates Horsdal, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz, David Ajala, Blu del Barrio and Ian Alexander. “She’s a legend in the making and a civil hero, and she was an absolute delight to work with,” Martin-Green adds.
“She wowed us with her charm, humility, and generosity, and she whipped out some acting chops too!” said the barrier breaking actress who portrays the first Black female Star Trek Captain. “It was an honor for me as a Black woman to stand with her in the story. It’s an experience I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.”
Did you watch the episode?
What did you think?
I, for one, find it hard to believe that earth would be “united” under a President Stacey Abrams.
Do you agree? Why or why not?
