Jeff Gerstmann would probably put it this way: You want the best Star Trek, I want the most Star Trek
I mean no personal insult or disrespect, but that's rather terrible. Isn't that essentially what put Star Trek in the hole in the first place? Too much, resulting in a creative bankruptcy?
Yeah, that's the commonly held wisdom pretty much. I guess that's sorta my point - it wasn't too much Trek for me back then, I was soaking it up. So, as long as it would be a sustainable business model (which it likely wouldn't be), more Trek would be fine by me.
Philitas of Cos, Greek intellectual, is said by Athenaeus to have studied arguments and erroneous word usage so intensely that he wasted away and starved to death. British classicist A. Cameron speculates that P. died from a wasting disease which his contemporaries joked was caused by his pedantry.
