Re: PIC S1: Stardust City Rag

I really don't like what they did to Seven. You can make a change make sense, but that doesn't make it a good change.

My issue isn't "Seven would never do this," it's "The writers shouldn't have done this." They completely changed the heart and soul of the character OFF SCREEN. This could've been any generic ex borg and they'd barely have to swap some names out. That's unacceptable for a character with so much history. If you want to use Seven, use Seven.

She was unrecognizable, and that's not something I can forgive.

Re: PIC S1: Maps and Legends

I've only seen episode 1, as I'm saving the rest to watch with family, but I see a trend in these comments that I want to address.

Just because it could happen doesn't mean it should happen.

Yes, it's possible that humanity reverts itself to a nastier time, or becomes less idealistic or whatever. Sure. I just think that it's a stupid direction to take Star Trek.

Q could've destroyed the enterprise in episode 1, yet it still wouldn't have liked that twist.

Star Trek has always had a distinct vision. An optimistic outlook that yes, is challenged, but still defines the whole future it tries to present. Sure, we've known criminals and murderers exist in the ST universe, they're bad people, but they certainly don't define the tone or message of the story being told.

Star Trek has also always been theatrical. It's about quiet moments and big characters. It's about people living in a sci-fi setting, not the setting itself. This understanding ties together TOS, TNG, DS9, and VOY. Despite their differences. I feel like they're losing their soul with these recent additions.
