Three threads that were concerend over Scotty's assistant, and several complaint fests about plot or continuity errors in the film.

So, discussing a subject that has to do with the future direction of the franchise, and the history of why it's failed to keep up with the rest of televised science fiction on this subject, seems wholly appropriate for this forum. (At least to me, and several of the others on the forum who see it as a personal issue.)
Speaking as one of those people, just how many threads called "We need some GLBT folks on the bridge" can we have going before it gets a tad repititious???
