    If you can't have an adult conversation, then we're done here.

    I don't work for CBS, I'm not paid by CBS. I've never even talked to anyone who works for CBS (well directly, I have conversed with artists from the shows)

    And you immediately resorted to name calling.

    I didn't see a dedicated review thread so here are a few more. Apologies if some of these have been posted somewhere on here.

    San Francisco Chronicle - 3/4
    "Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” leverages audience familiarity in a manner that’s welcoming rather than suffocating."

    Paste Magazine - 9/10
    "Smart, addictive and flat out fun, Strange New Worlds is the best Star Trek series since The Next Generation and acts as a faithful love letter to the original.

    Solzy at the Movies - 4/5
    "While Star Trek: Strange New Worlds must stick to canon and Pike's fate, the show offers a contemporary vibe as fans get to visit new worlds and cultures."

    One of the most TOS plots ever done.

    I agree. My opinion since I watched that episode was that it was silly, but overall done well so I liked it.

    One need only watch Charlie X or TAS' "How Sharper than a Serpent's Tooth" to see the idea.

    Also, the realization of how devastating grief can be to people.

    And that grief can last more than one lifetime.

    I can hardly wait, so people can bitch endlessly about what they've actually seen.

    Instead of, you know, imagining the horror. :techman:

    And dedicated Trek sites like trekmovie and trekcore, and actual Trek actors who are on that very same show... but of course some BBSers know things better. :D

    They're only stating their opinion. They're not trying to convince you to change your opinion like you seem to be.

    No. It's called opinions.

    I interpret "But it's not, of course." and "You can get everyone who's ever worked on the show to swear out affidavits that they believe it is a character, and it still will not be a character." as more than just an opinion :shrug:

    Awww…I should not have read the IGN review…

    the one that mentions

    the Robert April cameo, which I guess means TAS is no longer canon?

    It depends on what one takes as canon. I think someone else posted about it.
