Re: DSC S2: If Memory Serves

Is this a universe anyone can say they want to live in? It is barbaric, chaotic, dreary and depressing. There is no joy. Put me in almost any era of Earth's and I will take it over this. Most eras of prosperity were far higher in ideals, in nobility, in values. I don't see the point of the series at all. What does it want to say, and why?

Re: DSC S2: If Memory Serves

"I think Saru letting them fight was the only viable solution. Tyler violently murdered Culber who has now been brought back to life. How is Culber supposed to process that? This wasn't a thing of them fighting over a woman (or man) or like Tyler slept with his mom and wouldn't call her back. Culber was murdered and his feelings are going to be very strong and very aggressive. If you break up that fight now, Culber will just find some other time to unleash that justified aggression and there may not be anyone on hand to make sure that it doesn't get out of control.

Saru did the right thing. "

Whoa. Justified aggression? We didn't even have the idea that retributive punishment was justified in the 20th century, why would we supposed to buy into the idea that in a supposedly enlightened 23rd century it will be? Will crimes in the future be dealt with by throwing the victim and perpetrator into a boxing ring?

Violence is not only of many ways to deal with an issue like this, I don't think it's asking too much of a doctor to be aware of them. In any other Star Trek Saru would be court-marshaled.
