    Would not be the first time studio stole someone else's idea, after ST: DS9 blatantly ripped B5 plot from JMS.

    Somebody had a rant on reddit that didn't get downvote brigaded, it pretty much sums up what I think of the lazy media writing about STD

    https://www.reddit.com/r/startrek/co..._articles_can/
    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    Eh. Honestly it seems like a pedant getting stirred up. Especially when it comes to how STD is being compared to other Star Trek series.

    To be fair, convention would have it called DSC or DIS rather than STD. The other series were referred to by TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT rather than STV, STE, STNG.

    But I'll still call Discovery STD because it's funny.

    Discovery is problematic because if you're talking about TV, there's the Discovery Channel. Which depending on the cable system, uses both DSC and DIS. Unfortunate implications aside, STD isn't currently taken.

    Same reason Xbone didn't die. Marketing geniuses engineered it for a cool abbreviation (DISCO apparently), overlooked the hilarious alternative and assumed they could control the memes.

    Also that failed abortion of a show deserves the STD name.

    Do you think Lorca did suggestion for Adm. Cornwell to go for the summit, was a long shot to get rid of her. So he would get to keep his position?

    But what does he desire the most? He position as ship captain, or her?
    A starfleet admiral showing up at a Klingon meeting, would be a gold opportunity for them.

    Would bring his character to an even darker spot.
