Where do I get off expecting to have a passionate discussion about the merits of Star Trek on an internet Star Trek forum, right? Why not just shut the forum down and replace it with a sign that says "Everyone enjoy Star Trek! Or don't! Doesn't matter!" I'm not going to complete your homework assignment and read through pages of debates that happened in the past. Why not just tell me what you think, dude? If your entire position is "I likes what I likes" than sure, I can respect that. It doesn't really add anything to a thread titled "Is it just me or is star trek going the wrong way," now does it? But to each his own. I'm not interested in having a conversation where everyone holds hands and decides that accepting each others preferences is the beginning and end of the conversation. We're here to debate. Is Star Trek heading in the right direction? What is the right direction for Star Trek? What are the essential elements required to move a franchise along from one incarnation to the next? Why are they important? Is Discovery/Picard doing? Why or why not? To what degree?
