Star Trek: Picard Showrunner: I Wanted to Piss Off the Fanbase and Spite the "Anti-SJWs"

Perfect. The Rian Johnson Plan for Success.

He babbles something about the fans "always" hating Star Trek, in order to excuse the fact that people now hate Star Trek.

Because of Discovery, and now his shitshow.

I actually went back and looked on Google Groups, which acquired Usenet, so you can look through the old Usenet groups and watch what people said about "Deep Space Nine" then about "Voyager." They f***ing hated it. They lacerated it. I mean, plenty of people liked it and loved it.

Rian Johnson made the exact same claim about The Empire Strikes Back. He claimed that it was highly divisive, splitting the audience, and only gained a positive reputation in hindsight.

That's absurd. Absurd. It was The Empire Strikes Back that turned the one-off space swashbuckler Star Wars into an epic, and everyone knew that at the time.

And this bitchmade SJW eater-of-diverse-creampies is now just running through the same NPC script.

Gee I wonder now if he'll claim that the great majority of viewers who don't like his garbage trashfire show don't like it only because they're racist and sexist.

Any bets?

No? You won't bet me?

I guess you've been paying attention! Maybe you do read the posts!

But the criticisms that are being leveled against "Deep Space Nine," and then against Janeway, female Captain, black Vulcan [Tim Russ’s Tuvok] -- all of the things that were problematic for certain contingent of so called "Star Trek" fans back then, the way that they attack each other and the way they attack the show --it's identical to now.

I am not a Star Trek fan, but I am Star Trek fan adjacent. Most people I know like Star Trek. Even though I didn't watch Star Trek since the original cast repeats, I have constantly been around people who watch Star Trek.

Number of rants I've heard about the "black Vulcan" or female captain?

Zero.

This is a lie. They repeat the same lies every time they fail.

They could just turn them into 140 characters or whatever it is now on Twitter and you could make tweets out of them and it would still work just as well for "Discovery" or "Picard."

Yup, because everyone who says that your show castrates and demolishes the character of Picard, and turns the hopeful, humanistic Star Trek universe into another Young Adult Dystopian Action Fantasy, is just a racist and Hates Women.

So were there things about "Picard" that you knew you wanted to do that you could sense would test some boundaries for fans?

Can I just say that maybe cracking a 0.8 rating might have been a nice "boundary" to test?

Or is that too much of a science-fiction dream?

Sure. To the extent that I was aware of the kind of toxic fandom, the anti-SJW, you know, sad little corner of fandom -- you just disregard that. Sometimes you're motivated to have things simply because it's possibly going to piss off or provoke people who seem to have missed the memo about just what exactly "Star Trek" is and always has been all about.

You mean Star Trek has always been a Young Adult Girls Empowerment Dystopian Action Fantasy? And has always featured constant graphic violence and f-bombs?

Oh right, of course, how wrong I was.

You can tell how much viewers (I don't say "Fans") love his show by the fact that every question is about how to ignore the verdict of the would-be audience:

You spent so much of your career as a novelist, and this is the first time you've been in charge of a season of television where you're watching the story unfold, and seeing the reaction, over many weeks.

It's weird, yeah! I mean, one possible response that I could have had -- and I think some of my partners on "Picard" do have -- is to ignore it all completely.

You know who doesn't have to ignore audience reaction? People making a successful show that the audience enjoys and wants to see more of.

Or to just take a little glance, maybe look at Rotten Tomatoes, see what the kind of consensus of the reviews from the critics has been, which has been pretty darn favorable, and just sort of leave it at that.

OF COURSE! Insulate yourself inside the Safe Space of curated SJW Rotten Tomatoes reviewers. Who cares what actual Star Trek audience members think!
Hey, you got a positive review from Princess Weeks of TheMarySue.com! That matters more than cracking a 0.8 rating.




So what does Season 2 look like?

LOL

"Season 2"

lol

I'm going to do some science-ficiton writing of my own.

It involves the future -- the future of 2021.

In this future... All Star Trek properties not currently in production are put into indefinite hold until the stink of the past few bombs has had a few years to dissipate.

Then, in 2026 or so, they'll announce their newest attempt to reboot the original crew.

How's that for sci-fi predictifying?

It's going to be different in some ways.

LOL, I'll bet it's going to be "different," in the same way that a rock is different from a rock whose tv show has been cancelled and is no longer a rock at all.

It's definitely going to go in directions that we didn't see in Season 1.

The direction it's going to go in is the "Learning to Code" direction.

Season 2.

LOL, why don't you tell me more about Star Trek: Discovery season 5? You know, how CBS didn't bother to greenlight season 4 but went straight to greenlighting (supposedly) season 5?

You know a franchise is in trouble when they send these cretins out to talk about future sequels that everyone knows will never get made.


I think we've been emboldened in many ways by the popularity of the show.

It's popular?

Weird, CBS All Access guards the ratings like they're atomic bomb blueprints.

I guess they're just too modest to crow to the world about their smash-hit popular TV show, huh?

Talk about science fiction!

I've only done this once...

Make that a future perfect tense: I will have only done this once.

Get bent, you bitchmade failure.

Meanwhile, want to guess the like to dislike ratio of Marvel "Entertainment's" New Warriors?

Want to guess that it's the most unpopular thing ever on the Internet? More unpopular than Ghostbusters 2016? Even more unpopular than Brie Larson?

Here's that soy-drenched announcement again.

Here is the like to dislike ratio:

Nice going, Marvel!

Here are some of the many comments:

Didn’t realise that in America, Safespace is how typical jocks look according to what this guy says. I think the jock abusing this guy in high school wearing pink and skinny, was more his fantasy

Ouch...has Daniel Kibblesmith ever actually, you know, interacted with teenagers? Like, in real life, not just in his twink fantasies? This is not the guy you want trying to engage with your youth market.

A few points:

First, many people think that while Marvel Comics is an SJW trashfire, that has nothing to do with the cinematic MCU. (Or MSheU, as people are calling it.)

"Kevin Feige wouldn't permit that!" people say.

Wrong. For about five months, Kevin Feige has been the head of Marvel Comics creative/story planning.

They kicked out editor in chief Joe Quesada and installed Kevin Feige as Overlord of All Marvel, whether on TV, in movies, or in comics.

Kevin Feige is creative director for all Marvel companies.

So this is Kevin Feige's baby.

This is on Kevin Feige's watch.

Who knows -- this might have been personally approved by Kevin Feige.

Also, Marvel has been putting out the word for months that Kevin Feige is behind the MSheU's push for "diversity," and threatened to quit if he didn't get his "The Future is Female" way.

Kevin Feige runs the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which means he currently runs the most successful movie franchise in the world. Everything he touches seems to turn to gold (and upsets Martin Scorsese). But he put his Marvel Studios job on the line to stand up to Disney's biggest shareholder -- among others at the parent company -- to fight for female-led superhero movies.

According to Mark Ruffalo's account, Kevin Feige wasn't sure if he'd have a job after making his pitch to Disney. It's not clear whether he would've quit if they said no or if he thought Disney might fire him for standing up to them. Either way, he won. He stood up for change and made it happen.

Mark Ruffalo told the story in an interview with the Independent. Ruffalo plays Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he's very active in progressive politics. The site noted how Marvel had been criticized in the past for its lack of LGBT+ representation -- with many allies disappointed to just get a brief nod in Avengers: Endgame. That's when Ruffalo shared some Marvel backstory:

When we did the first Avengers, Kevin Feige told me, ‘Listen, I might not be here tomorrow.’ [He was going to talk to Disney about the issue of why there were no female superhero movies.] And he’s like, ‘Ike [Isaac Perlmutter, Disney’s largest shareholder at the time] does not believe that anyone will go to a female-starring superhero movie. So if I am still here tomorrow, you will know that I won that battle.’

So is everyone ready for the MSheU's first transgender character in a movie, coming up in The Eternals?

Again, this is Kevin Feige. This is the supposedly-protected-from-SJW MCU, not the laughable garbage porridge that is SJW Marvel Comics.

I think the New Warriors will be the end of the MCU. Not right away -- but like a crack in the hull of a ship that eventually sinks it, three years later, this is damage that will eventually tell.

The thing is, most Marvel MCU fans do not read the comic books.

But they assume the comic books are "cool" and appreciate that the MCU is "like the comic books."

Which, again, they assume -- without every reading them -- are "cool."

But now they're finding out that Marvel Comics isn't even remotely cool -- it's literal garbage, filled with cut-rate Tumblr artists who draw women as trannies (because feminine features would reward "the male gaze") and who make half of every new female character a lesbian.

Marvel is literally known for hiring cut-rate "talent" -- they hire the cheapest people they can because their strategy is to increase profit even while losing sales by simply hiring the absolute most bargain-basement garbage Twitteratis and Tumblrinas they can find.

DC is known to pay for quality. They asked a DC writer/artist Sean Gordon Murphy if he'd ever work for Marvel. Murphy laughed and said, "Marvel couldn't afford me."

And they can't, because their business model is to hire talentless Twitter and Tumblr SJWs who will work for slave wages because they're used to living in near-poverty.

Marvel has been leftwing Tumblr trans propaganda for years.

But it's only now the non-comic-geek audience is finding out about it. It's only now that this story finally broke wide, getting coverage in normie newspapers.

So we'll see how Kevin Feige's Marvel Phase 5JW goes.

Burn. Burn all the IPs.

Go broke and go hang, Hollywood.
