    Even with the overpopulation of women, there's not much to look at. I just wish the show was better.

    You should check out IDW's Parallel Lives and IDIC comic runs, they're a lot of fun!

    You had the admiral Chronenberg's character, Stamets and Culber. How can people say there were no males?

    Admiral Vance was all that was needed. Plus Book, Kovich (who was hilarious) and Takara. Not counting Saru, Bryce, Rhys, Culber or Stammets.

    What was the story with Detmer riding a tiny Enterprise shaped flying machine in one of the comics?

    Oh buzz off with this misogyny

    Why do you keep putting her name in scare quotes?

    I don't know what that is. But, I did meet William Shatner a couple of days ago. Very nice guy.

    Woman/man ratio on DIS is about the same as on TOS and TNG, but in reverse. I personally love it. A great change of pace.

    Some people are just scared of the fact that this show acknowledges the reality that women exist.

    It just hampers the believability of the show and stories they tell. Of course, that's just how it looks to me. It seems weird that jobs that are traditionally populated more by men than women are not that way in the future, with no explanation at all.

    War, death attrition. It happens. No explanation required.

    I thought S3 was pretty good at the beginning when they were exploring the 32nd century and looking for the Federation. Terra Firma was a great 2 episode diversion into the MU. After that I think it crashed and burned and the finale in particular was atrocious. The plotting was really bad and the cause of the burn was a massive disappointment given how much they were hyping it and building it up during the season.

    On the bright side, S3 introduced Admiral Vance, the best Starfleet admiral of all time.

    To me, it would be weird if these types of things didn't change in the future. The future is supposed to be different.

    I think, if something like that happened, there would be an explanation. Why would they even put it into the story then?

    The Burn happened. The Temporal Wars happened. It's there in the text already.

    Also, past shows never explained male majority. Why do we need the opposite explained any way? Equality and opportunities should be all that matters.

    The cause of the burn was unbelievably bad. I actually laughed when I saw that this kid screamed and destroyed the dilithium! It was like an SNL skit. How embarrassing.
    Not sure if I like Vance yet.
