    Looks like you don't know what that word means then.

    Years back SFdebris made the point that if Voyager after season 4 was told in the manner of Discovery - with every episode framed from the POV of Seven as the main character - people would have liked her a lot less, even with the same characterization and Ryan's acting chops.

    Really it's the framing of early Discovery that turned a lot of people off.

    Actually, it doesn't. I've seen ST episodes with women dominant planets, but this wasn't that. What's the explanation for it?

    We'll just have to agree to disagree on that.

    Why do I care...oh wait, I don't.

    That was one of the best episodes of Discovery.

    Why would a future military follow the same trends as a modern one?

    Over 100 years ago there were no women in the US Marines

    I step away for a few hours only to see it's worse than I thought

    I could tell you what it means, then you'd point at the post where you claimed not to have a problem with women in Starfleet, then you'd bring out the tired old "I'm not sexist but" argument. I have better things to do with my life than get bogged down with this bad-faith horseshit.

    A fitting epithet for Discovery... "It could have been better."

    Technology (drones, cruise missiles, etc.) does the work that battalions of soldiers would've done in earlier times.

    Technology and Special Forces (SEALs, Rangers, etc.).

    Still not sure what happened. Women seem to be women, and men seem to be men. Yet, they seem to want women to do the things men mostly do, and are more suited for. Do women of the future have denser muscular structure than men, while still being smaller in size? Where are all the men? Are they doing the jobs that women usually do? Who is having all the babies? Test tubes maybe?

    So? It was a perfectly decent Star Trek show. Things don't have to be the greatest ever in order to be worthwhile.
