Anyway, one of the common complaints from writers involved in Trek is that it's unduly difficult to write for the old universe without violating canon, and that's why we needed a reboot.
It's not difficult at all, especially given how easy it is to look stuff up on the very same device that you're writing on.
Also, I'm curious -- I've never, ever heard the complaint you site from an actual writer of Star Trek
scripts, books, stories, or comics. I've heard it from fans, lots of times, but never from actual writers. So if it's such a "common" complaint among "writers involved in Trek," can you please give me a few examples of actual writers who've made this complaint?
I'm not asking this to be snarky, I'm genuinely curious as to who's said that.
