You are free to offer your opinions on a show, episode, book, film, film series, cinematic universe, etc., as long as it applies to that item, and not to the stated or assumed political views of the producers, writers, actors, key grip, best boy, intern, etc., of said item. In short, you want to talk about a show or movie, talk about the show or movie.

Others are free to disagree with your opinion. (You are not entitled to express your opinion in a vacuum.) BUT that opposing opinion must follow the same requirements above that the original opinion had to follow, as well as not bringing in the assumed political views of the original poster. (I leave out "stated" as they should not state any political position here on STPMA.)

ALSO, do not toss about derogatory labels at someone who offers an opinion in opposition to yours. No name calling, political labels (SJW, etc.,) questioning their humanity, morality, ethics, true fan status, or your assumption they are in the business to protect a certain fandom (gatekeeping, etc.). Again, discuss the show or movie not the politics or motives of another poster.

If you dislike something, it's perfectly fine to say so. However, posting your dislike every time someone else says anything positive about a show or movie, essentially stating the same thing over and over again is not acceptable. If you have something new to add, or are replying to a specific point in someone else's comment, okay. But if it's just to state once again, "IT SUCKS!" Don't.

I am reminded of "Andromeda"

In a post Apocalyptic Galaxy, a time lost Federation Starship works to rebuild the Federation.

Earth 2, Genesis and Andromeda.

The advantage for producers is that since you're in a distant future post Federation galaxy, You can avoid most of the baggage of the old continuity by saying it was all destroyed except for whatever the writers want to reference.

I think it's license for "anything goes," yeah.

It'll play for the crowd who has no real attachment to Star Trek. TPTB get to keep and use the Star Trek name, yet pull any fuckin' bullshit they want without prickling the canon-iers' feathers.

It's the perfect setup for them.

Of course, that's basically what you said, Jay, sans the cynicism.

I am one of the few people who liked the Federation Starship designs from season one, John Eaves I thought did a fantastic job that first year given all the behind the scenes challenges. If I were the people in charge of Discovery, I would continue to use those designs as opposed to the more angular material seen in Season 2. With that being said, the fact this upcoming season is far into the future ..aside from Discovery I doubt I will see any familiar looking ship designs nor would I expect to see any.

I am really looking forward to what they do in Season 3. One of the things I liked about Picard was that we were once again getting forward looking Trek instead of prequels to what we'd seen before. This could be really amazing stuff.
