Re: Should a New Star Trek show be willing to kill off major character

I think that no one being safe would heighten the drama and make for a better story, but I would want any important deaths to be well thought out. Too much death makes the loss cheap, and once that character is gone, they should be gone, barring a really clever work around - and that would have to be damn clever not to be a cheap cop out.
I can't help but think how overused important character deaths have become in comics. It seems like every few months there's a big death, and they always come back within a few years, so that the deaths have become just a cheap ploy that it's difficult to make it mean anything, not when no one's expecting the death to stick.
