    According to the article, turn-over is pretty high in the first season of Trek series. Another point (of my own opinion) is that Terra Nova and Cold Front were some of the worst episodes thus far. My opinion: No big loss. There are plenty of other writers on staff and we’re past the half-way point in season one. They can be replaced easily enough without too much damage to the overall story.

      I couldn’t get to the article (wasted a few minutes trying to search their site and still couldn’t get it), but I pretty much agree. Cold Front was an ok episode, all strange and open-ended like intended, but Terra Nova was just plain silly. Breaking the Ice, Civilization, Dear Doctor, and Sleeping Dogs are at the top of my episode list; worry if those writers are lost. We can certainly do without more Terra Nova type episodes. Although now that we have seen the planet once, it shouldn’t just be dropped like every other planet-of-the-week. I hate that shit.

      Personally, I’m looking forward to some more Andorians vs Vulcans.

        You should get your wish this wednesday, if the trailer lives up to its promise.

          What I want to see is the details of the Vulcan genocide of the Andorians. But that happened sometime between Kirk and Picard, so we’re unlikely to see it addressed here unless they time travel into the future.

          Nobody ever talks about it, but you never saw an Andorian in any movie, in any series set after the original series, etc. They just disappeared from the face of the universe, like Tribbles. Except the Klingons, at least, admit to destroying that species. And the Vulcans just keep their fires within, insisting that you don’t want to get them angry. That they had a violent past, but logic lead them out of it.

            Andorians become members of the federation. Although we don’t see them much in the TNG era, they are seen in some episodes.

            For some reason, this just makes me think of South Park. I can already see the Romulans screaming “YOU KILLED THE ANDORIANS, YOU ILLOGICAL BASTARDS!!!!!”

            And the Vulcans just keep their fires within, insisting that you don’t want to get them angry. That they had a violent past, but logic lead them out of it.

            Wouldn’t it be funny if they turned out to be the biggest pushovers in the galaxy? It’s like that old saying about the devil, his greatest trick was getting people to think he didn’t exist (or something… it’s been a while).

            I figure they could just be lying about that in order to keep people happy (or at the very least OK) with them being the way they are.

              But we know that Vulcans go crazy during mating season (as would we, if we only got some once every seven years) and the Romulans are supposed to be Vulcans without the logic.

              I just have this vision of Vulcans straight out of Taxi Driver… and Andorians not getting that they’re pushing them over the edge. Afterwards the Vulcans are embarassed by what they did and overcompensate on the logic for a few hundred years..

        So am I. I am wondering if Andor doesn’t come into the fold with Earth out of some sort of great debt. I was also surprised by the Andorian commander’s respect for T’Pol in this week’s P’Jem followup.

        Twenty years down the road the Vulcans are less meddlesome, Andorians are so indebted to Earth that they have to sit aside their paranoia, and Vulcan’s Ambassador to Andor is … T’Pol?

          I’d rather see T’Pol become a Romulan. :)
