He wouldn't approve of a lot of the plot points in DS9 either. I'm glad the writers didn't stick to Gene's rules.

Word is, he didn't approve of what the showrunners wanted to do in DS9 just before he died and his wishes were ignored. Think about that the next time you feel glad his rules are thrown out. DS9 is one thing, but Discovery is supposed to be a Prequel to the Original Series so dumping the rule makes absolutely no sense. That's like creating a TV show about a utopia, then 50 years later, making a prequel set ten years before the previous series that ignores what the original is all about. It completely undermines everything that Gene established about Star Trek.

And that ain't Star Trek. They aren't even trying to make it Star Trek. If they wanted to throw out some of Gene's rules, they shouldn't have made the show a prequel and used the Kelvin Timeline instead.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
