    And honestly Star Trek recycling has been going on since as early as 1979 so seems to me its been more or less successful for about the last 40 years.

    I think it started recycling during TOS.

    Your probably right. The Menagerie itself is a good example of some early recycling on the part of the series.

    I'm not going to disagree but I don't see it as viable, or even artistic to keep on the same path. I am not convinced that the only for Trek to survive is to hit "repeat." In my opinion, Star Trek is an art and art is a reflection of the time it is in, rather than the time it was initially imagined. And Star Trek is definitely needing to break out of that mold rather than holding on to a 60-80's vision of the future.

    Star Trek is not made up of makeup techniques and aliens of the week. It was as much about optimism and exploration as the action and the adventure that those things brought. If Star Trek needs to hold on to past make up designs in order to satisfy rather than focus on characters than I say it is well past the time for Star Trek to be retired to the annals of history and allow other franchises to flourish.

    That's not what Hythlodeus was saying at all. Also, "hipster faction"?
    Infraction for trolling. Comments to PM.

    Emilia told you to knock off the personal remarks earlier today with a verbal warning.

    Glad I was busy today. I can't tell if I missed much or if I didn't. I'd make a terrible hipster. No beard or man-bun.

    But I liked Discovery "before it was cool!" if that counts. Even though I think it was always cool.

    If continuity errors are a problem for you, you should be disavowing much more than Discovery. Hell, you should think practically every episode is in a different universe than every other episode.

    If Discovery was some random new IP with a small devoted fanbase, then you could make at least a semi-reasonable hipster accusation. Star Trek hasn't been 'cool'...well, ever? If Discovery ever became a huge critical darling, maybe.

    But in general, anyone who accuses other people of being a hipster for liking something less popular than the stuff they like is just trying to delegitimize other people's opinion by attacking their motive for the opinion, and is thus, a jerk. The artistic version of calling them an SJW.
