Re: New Star Trek

Watched it earlier today (on PatStew's twitter, because Prime is geo-restricting bastards) and it looks amazing, yes, but I lost my goddamn SHIT when

Seven showed up. I was not expecting that, and it makes me so fuuuuucking happy to know she's going to get to play a proper version of that character after the shit Voyager forced on her.

(I didn't know where else to put it and it doesn't really deserve a separate thread.)

OK... It's been three days since "The Trouble With Edward" and I still can't even. I'm not able to even.

The title character is the most horrible shithead in Star Trek's history. I can't believe for a second that his guy is a Stafleet science officer. A guy with no ethics, no decency and no discipline wouldn't be allowed to wear this uniform. We've had our fair share of troubled crewmen, Reg Barclay being the most obvious example. But Barclay wasn't trying to be a dick (in fact, other officers were being dicks to him), he was just socially awkward. There was Wesley Crusher, who sometimes ventured into "insufferable genius" territory by being smarter than adult officers, but the writers had managed to do a few interesting things with him. Neelix's quirkiness could be annoying at times, but he was a very decent guy. Mortimer Harren, the antisocial mathematician who never intended to stay in Starfleet and got stuck on the Voyager by accident, was still able to risk his life for the crew. Edward Larkin, on the other hand, doesn't seem to have any redeeming features. I know he's supposed to be a villain, but Star Trek had always tried to make its villains complex and interesting; characters like Q and Gul Dukat are very fun to watch, civilizations like the Borg and the Dominion represent some intriguing concepts and even the Kazon are an attempt at social commentary (an attempt that mostly failed, but still...).

The writers have portrayed a Starfleet scientist as a complete shithead just for the sake of a "comedic episode". It just doesn't work within the Star Trek I've come to know and love.


I know this rant wasn't entirely coherent, but I had to get it off my chest.
