When did I ever say that?
I was talking about the IDW "ST Ongoing" two-parters. I said absolutely nothing about "universal rules".
What you said was, "All those critics saying the regular two-parters need to be three-parters instead might be surprised that this one-shot is quite fulfilling." So you were definitely implying
that those critics were applying a simplistic universal rule about story length, that they were incapable of believing that a short story could ever
be fulfilling. Which I don't consider to be a fair interpretation of their critiques.
