    No disrespect, but a great deal of your posts seem to be a reaction to this "brigade". If they post here just put those posters on ignore and move on. I'd like to talk Discovery or Picard, but you and other fans come across as so defensive that as a TNG/DS9 fan I've started just scrolling past your posts after I see the same complaints repeated.

    I subscribe to the idea that the galactic barrier envelopes the galaxy, so they could've been going "up" or "down".

    No, gatekeeping is more along the lines of excluding the fans that like the content/shows/versions you don't (You like *fill in show the gatekeeper doesn't like*? You're not a true fan.), or are new to the franchise and don't know it well yet (Please; you haven't even read the unlicensed technical manual from 1979???). Gatekeepers can have any personal preference.

    How so?

    You are not a true fan unless:

    You are powered by electricity.
    You have flat angled blades that move air.

    The only Star Trek episodes worth watching are the ones with Brian Brophy in it.

    Lack of challenging viewpoints is the equivalent of tacit agreement that they're right, especially for a series that's still in active production.

    Pushback in both directions is the way this works.

    I don't think so.

    In fact, assigning a position to people who don't reply is the equivalent of putting words in people's mouths.

    With the possible exception of moderators and admin when it's their job to post, no one is obligated to reply to any post online, whether they agree or disagree with it.

    Posting is a personal decision. And I just happened to feel that my position in disagreement with your post was something that I wanted to share. In particular, I feel somewhat offended that someone might construe that I agree with a position (including possibly an offensive one) that, for whatever reason, I do not respond to, whether it's because I have something else I'd rather do instead of directly engaging or because I am simply unaware of what's going on in a particular corner of the Internet.

    My member videos will be very divisive and controversial.

    This is a thread for controversial opinions, not objective fact.

    No one wants to see video of your member.

    And frankly, I'm tired of telling you that.

    For that you're getting three.

    And I don't mean videos.

    I used to call it The Digital Hello.

    It did not catch on.

    So anyway....controversial Star Trek Opinions....

    I generally don't like "Data episodes" of TNG.

    Perhaps this has been mentioned in one of the previous 274 pages, as I only read about four dozen, but:

    DS9 was good specifically because Roddenberry was not involved and it was allowed to creatively evolve beyond some of his original ideas and insistence for TNG.

    I'm not sure Pale Moonlight or the stories where they show that things aren't actually post-scarcity in that world would have been greenlit by Gene.
