    Wonderful show everyone.

    cq1) I would love a callister show, but without the original captain.
    cq2) If he did the crime, he sould do the time.

    In response to your community question: Yes, I absolutely would watch it but I would be worried about stretching a good story too far. If I am honest, I do share in concern with yall. It was very uncomfortable to have my lifestyle portrayed in such a dark and gruesome manner; however, it does give us an opportunity to look closely at the potential dangers of this personality type. Maybe that could be the sequel, an episodic examination into the different personality types at there worst.

    My feelings on a “Callister” TV show are the same as they were the last time the idea came up; it’s a nice thought I guess, but it doesn’t have enough meat in its core setting to go very far. So they’re basically sentient video game characters roaming around a video game, right? So either they just stay in video game land forever doing knockoff Star Trek things (which I guess is what folks want?), or they try to find a way to leave and transition into the real world, which…well, creates some problems. (And Westworld is doing that theme better anyways. 🙂 ) Ultimately I think it’s one of those ideas that sounds good until you actually try to flesh it out.

    On the events over at CBS…Oy boy. My hope is that Moonves’ departure doesn’t negatively impact Star Trek’s resurgence in any way; correct me if I’m wrong, but from past Trek news my impression has been that Moonves was a key champion in bringing the franchise back to the forefront of CBS’ efforts, so hopefully there are still enough ‘big wigs’ around at the network with a passion for Star Trek to keep its momentum alive.
