Re: Ron D. Moore about VOY

All I know is that when I started rooting for the Cylons to wipe out humanity, it was time to bow out. Ron Moore seems to be good at writing dysfunction, but it can't be every characters defining quality.

The concept was post-apocalyptic humanity which is fine. But he seems to forget that even in the worst of times we adjust to the new "normal" of a given situation. He should have watched MASH and re-examined DS9 before heading off to write BSG. I saw the same things in Caprica, a shit load of people that just weren't worth giving a damn about.

Voyager had its problems, but I'd rather watch it than Moore's BSG anyday of the week.
Agreed. I still find it incredible that with all of Moore's talk of "realism", he failed to realize that a group of people THAT screwed up, would be incapable of running a fleet.

Or a vacum cleaner. Or a popcorn popper.

And I personally hope that Moore never writes for Star Trek again. Or, if he does, he's not the guy in charge.
