Re: Orci, Kurtzman and Lindelof should not Return.
What bothered me about it was that everything would stop so that they could give some exposition and give the more minor characters some lines. And I'm talking here about all the series, not just TNG. The worst at this was Voayger (which I'm actually a big fan of) where they would discuss important issues with the chef and the botanist.
I agree that Modern Trek would've been better off if they had used the conference room scenes more sparingly.
