Re: I hope for more traditional space battles
Lol, listen to these Prime-Berman-era fan boys playing the moral high ground card about nuKirk.
I see clutching at the straws.
Even when straws are being clutched at, it ought to be possible to criticize (or even to mock) positions taken and opinions stated without taking a swipe at those who express them, so why not simply leave that part out? It's not necessary and adds nothing useful to the conversation.
