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.

For Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, who would you cast for the other characters like Doctor Boyce, Lieutenant Tyler, etc? I've seen a few posts on Facebook where people are making suggestions on who to cast for Robert April.

I suggested Sean Bean for Captain April.

Anyways, I thought I'd ask the Brain Trust of Grey and Manno what they thought. ::bow:: ::bow::

I had heard a suggestion that Jeffrey Combs play Boyce. I think that could work.

However, I do hope they include some aliens in the crew too. We've never had an Andorian as a member of the crew in a live action Trek series.

I do think it would be nice to see Robert April finally appear in a canon Trek show. I loved his inclusion in an episode of the Animated Series.
