Forum rules
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.

Its a continuation of the "Through the Mirror" mini-series, where Mirror Barclay is impersonating his counterpart. Its good so far, but not stellar. Mirror Barclay hates the way his counterpart is treated and sets out o do something about it, of course for selfish reasons.

There's a scene where they go to aid the USS Hood with engine trouble, and La Forge cuts him off everytime he makes a suggestion in deference to Gomez who is two ranks lower and fresh from the Academy, infuriating him because he knows the problem.

I like the problem with the Hood's engines because it is a real-world problem I saw on ship's while in the US Navy. Older Excelsior's are being used for short warp burst travel and not opening up their engines for longer cruises, causing engines problems. This happens a lot on Navy ships doing slow speed patrols, causing build up in the exhausts.
