Star Trek: Discovery to discard chief Roddenberry rule

July 3rd, 2017 by bash Comments

Star Trek: Discovery will discard one of the most important rules adhered to by creator Gene Roddenberry – avoiding severe conflicts or negatively portraying characters among Starfleet staff.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg revealed that while the rules of Starfleet will remain the same, “we’re still going to argue in the future“.

We’re trying to do stories that are complicated, with characters with strong points of view and strong passions. People have to make mistakes — mistakes are still going to be made in the future,” Harberts said.

Berg added: “The rules of Starfleet remain the same, but while we’re human or alien in various ways, none of us are perfect.”

Star Trek: Discovery will premiere on Sunday 24 September.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
