    I agree. I didn't like that part of it. The stuff I liked mostly was how it was a colorblind society. People weren't racist. People were also generally nice and friendly with each other. It really helped me at the time because I was lonely and depressed. It even helps me today along with other shows or music. When your feeling bad and you just want to put something nice on. I also really liked the world building of the show. How it had familiar aliens and how it took time to sort of develop the rules about how the universe worked.

    What the federations goals were. Why the Klingons were warriors etc. I then got into TOS and DS9 shortly after and soon Voyager and that is how I became a Trek fan. Which then made me go look out other Sci FI like Babylon 5 and later Stargate and Space Above and Beyond and so forth. Trek is the firt show I got into on a level beyond watching. I bought things like the Tech Manuel books like that. I am not into it on that level anymore but I still watch all the shows and still watch reruns quite abit.

    Because "if you don't like it scroll past" doesn't ring true for some. I have to wonder if on social media they rage on every comment they don't agree with - or if when they're walking about they do the same if they hear a conversation they don't agree with.

    Back during the run of TNG? Incessantly. Some people never stopped complaining about Picard's speeches. :p

    Thread is about ST: Picard:
    This is just a small sample. I can pull a lot more, but I trust I've made my point. Sorry I had to go for the nuclear option, but you kind of set yourself up for it. ;)

    *applauding intensifies.*

    I should add that I barely watch TNG in its initial run, and certainly never completed the series. I was more curious if people who did watch it had a similar experience where the speechifying came up every episode like the crying did?

    But, it is clear to me that I need new joke material ;)

    While I can appreciate the positive influence TOS had that similar colorblind attitude. It simply gave us the view of how they got there, rather than TNG stating "We're evolved; why can't you be?"

    Star Trek will never be able to fully explain how they got that positive future because it's likely impossible in real life. I think it works best when looked at in terms of being aspirational. Something that people should try to reach or simply enjoy the fantasy of seeing it happen on the shows.

    I would, if it wasn't treated as a bench mark for all of humanity now. "Humans will never reach Star Trek future!" are common cries I see and then demands for humans to behave not like humans. If you want me to aspire give me a way to put it in to action, not just "Oh, that was a nice 44 minute fantasy."

    There's a reason why Kirk's line of "We are killers but we are not going to kill today!" carries so much weight for me. It signifies choice.

    And why didn't you mention Gene's Touch?

    Oh, I guess that's why.

    if you’ve never seen DSC, why would this be a concern of yours?

    How would he know that if that’s not what you said?

    Are you not saying here that you haven’t watched the show? Whether that was a typo or not, that’s what he was replying to.

    That’s only asking if Burnham cried in that episode. It doesn’t fix your typo about not having watched the show.

    It’s not a typo, I specified further in the post, do you pass judgment on a book before reading the whole thing? Regardless it’s mind bogglingly obvious what I meant (no one else has had any growth it), you’re just trolling really aren’t you?

    Nope. Just pointing out why @gblews didn’t think you saw the show, and why it would matter to you that Burnham cries if you didn’t.
