    It is a deliberately obscure comment meant to generate clicks. Keeping the spotlight firmly on RMB.

    This was a leak, right? Legit previews to critics can't be coming for months yet.

    Allow me to translate offensive 1990s American Male-ese for you. Rob employed a metaphor across two tweets-- in his opinion, the showrunners of Rings of Power "didn't f--k the prom queen" i.e. they failed with a high-profile show. But with Picard Season 3, Terry "f----d the prom queen" i.e. he succeeded with a high-profile show. Rob says he has seen a preliminary version of S3, which Terry has not disputed.

    Terry has chatted with numerous Trek fans and commentators not fond of the Abrams-Kurtzman style in an attempt to promote his show and grow the viewership for current Trek, as Terry predates the Robot / Hideout era, getting his start on Voyager and Enterprise. The fact that anyone finds this objectionable is absurd.

    Prior to PIC, Terry Matalas was only involved with ENT.

    I'm not a fan of Abrams Trek but am a fan Kurtzman Trek (okay, really just DSC and PIC). But I guess this is about what their perceptions are.

    My perception of PIC Season 3 is "TNG if it were done as a TOS Movie", but we'll see. Better that than "TNG as another season of ENT." Especially since ENT is the Trek series I like the least.

    I should clarify that "f--king the prom queen" is a quote from cheesy action movie The Rock, so this was Rob's attempt at film reference humor. The composer of 12 Monkeys responded with a quip about "Terry f--ks prom queen" being a Variety headline and Terry responded with a shocked Matt LeBlanc face, and for that a group of smug tweeters have been trying to shame and scold Terry, thinking they're doing something socially important wasting time on Twitter.

    I think perceptions that it's going to be notably TOS movie-like are based on a couple quotes that were misconstrued.

    You mean...this scene?
    Because RMB is perhaps one of the more toxic representations of fans and not one whose endorsement I find encouraging.

    Yeah someone leaked Picard Season 3 stuff to RMB.

    Though apparently RMB has watched some episodes with Terry so idk.

    what a weird way to say you think S3 is good.

    and I loved “The Rock” and that quote coming outta James Bond hits well. But still very odd.

    it's a terribly misogynistic way to describe something.

    Yeah, I'd heard about that last part, which is why I was a bit confused about the situation. From my experience, leaked material usually results in the IP-holders ignoring, disavowing, or taking legal action against the parties involved. So that this guy is getting positive engagement from the showrunner seems strange.

    He'd get more clicks saying it's bad. He's lost followers for saying it's good.

    Toxic Fandom is like Modern Politics. If you don't tow the party-line, you're dead to said party.
