Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

In MASH, Hawkeye and Trapper and BJ Honeycutt aren't going to be allowed to break the rules and piss off higher ups if they were following a true military structure they'd be in prison no matter how talented they are. Likewise, Klinger wouldn't be allowed to walk around in a dress for five years, they'd drop him in a psychiatric ward and forget about him.

In TNG, Riker wouldn't be allowed to turn down commands time and again no matter how badly he wanted to stay on the Enterprise. They also wouldn't allow a child on the bridge performing duties of more experienced, trained officers.

Any entertainment would fail miserably if we put in under the microscope we put Star Trek under.
