Star Trek "fans", 2-1 years ago: "I don't like Discovery it's too DIFFERENT even though it's p much just a modern take on the production style of TOS. I want more like TNG, even though there's fanservice shows and even The Orville on air."

Star Trek production team: *listens to criticism, fires showrunner, puts a new crew in charge*

Star Trek "fans", today: "I don't like Discovery, it's boring and just more of the same, just TNG with new cast and fancier effects."

You wanted this! Watch it.


I was /fantastically/ excited about DIS season 1, and the showrunner, who's name I forget, but who wrote a bunch of the novels and clearly had a plan for linking DIS into the pre-TOS era.

And then... y'all got him fired. And now I just see y'all, the same folk who complained about how shiny DIS S1 was, complaining that DIS S2 is bland.

Y'all! What do you think these thinkpieces and reblogs and shit do, if not send signals to content creators?! You did this! It's your fault DIS is a bad show!
