As I have stated this isn't an equation. Balance takes time to achieve and isn't just a quick numerical adjustment.
Also, why should I care about the ratio of women to men? Why not just let the best actors do their job of telling the story without concern about the gender or orientation? I don't give two craps about someone's race, gender or sexuality in Star Trek. I want an entertaining story. For me, both DSC and PIC have succeeded on that front, just like past Trek's do. And I have yet to hear a substantial argument as to why this is a problem, beyond "I want more men!" Why? What does it add to the story?
Just a suggestion: Could the topic of 'Underrepresentation of men and straight people in ST:Picard' be moved to a thread of it's own? If I understood correctly, the issue is not limited to one episode.
No. But the content of each of your posts makes a wrong. So there’s that, I guess.
I don't understand this part, do you mean it is wrong?
Some one could start one........or just stop talking about it here.
Please play nice everyone before @The Old Mixer wakes up and gets cranky........
Well, I suppose it's ...flattering they've read each and ervery one of my posts.
Because I'm not a fan of social politics being shoehorned into Star Trek, and it is being shoehorned, especially on Discovery, but also seemingly Picard. It's so obvious and forced that it's off-putting, to me, that's all. It doesn't help that I find Discovery's writing to be so comically bad that them cramming in as many gay/black/female characters into the show even more misguided. Just focus on a good story guys, less on the identity politics. We'll see what Picard's season finale is like.
But we're going round in circles now, so consider it dropped, from me at least.
I'll leave it at this-politics has always been shoehorned in to Trek.
So, for me, this is neither new nor offensive in Star Trek. Mileage will vary and I'll leave it at that.
[Scott Bakula] Oh, BOY. [/Bakula]
Social politics have always been shoehorned into Trek. Where've you been since 1966?
This is my opening to say half that make-up looks like Data's.
And need I remind us that this particular piece of social politics shoehorning earned the late, great Frank Gorshin an Emmy Award nomination for his performance, one of the only Emmy nominations for acting that TOS ever received during its run?
Ovation was responding to another poster, whom he quoted. I suspect that you couldn't see the other poster's quote, due to a certain feature.
Oh. My apologies to the poster.
I must rethink using that feature!
^ That's why I never used it myself. The feature's function, I always did the old-fashioned way.
Same here, it is after all what the scroll wheel was invented for.
Ummm...sorry, but that's a fan myth. Gorshin got an Emmy nom for his role as the Riddler on Batman, never for Star Trek. See HERE (link).
In fact, the only acting Emmy nod TOS ever got was for Nimoy. Here's the complete list of Emmy noms for TOS (link).
