And it won't ever change if you keep that submissive mindset.
It's not a "submissive mindset," it's fulfilling the terms of the legal document that authors sign with the company that owns the copyright and trademark of Star Trek. What you call a "submissive mindset" I call "obeying the law."
I call it doing the job we're hired to do. If you're hired as, say, a production illustrator on a movie, it's not a "submissive mindset" to be an illustrator rather than trying to do the director's job or the star's job. It's just fulfilling your own responsibilities as opposed to someone else's.
Indeedy. I'm far from a submissive person, but when you play in somebody else's sandbox you go in knowing that others - including the sandbox owner - play there too.

(I've been doing this for 20 years, and it kind of unnerves me that people might misread the thread and think that's what bugged me, without the specific context)
