NO!!! Every major alien species must all act the same, dress the same, and have the same beliefs or it's not Star Trek!Gandalf wrote: ↑2017-08-07 09:54pmOne of the "creature designers for the show put it thusly:
So I'm not really bothered by this. It actually seems pretty cool, showing that a species spread out across a quadrant should all look and dress the fucking same.Neville Page wrote:“The Empire is very big. They don’t all grow up on Qo’noS. They don’t all live on the same planets and certainly those different planets would have different environments.

In fact, if it's not overseen by a mean, often drunk, and egotistical ass who claimed all the credit for creating it despite it being created and developed by a large number of writers, producers, directors, and even actors, it's not Star Trek!
If it doesn't fit into this narrow vision of what ended up destroying the brand on TV by it basically being the exact same show (except DS9, which most Trek fatties hated) across 3 series with 75% of the content being utter crap, IT'S NOT STAR TREK!!!
