I'd imagine that's how most people feel about him. Not a reflection on Burton as an actor though; dude was great.

He's not a bad actor/rainbow reader, but boy howdy yeah La Forge was dull.

But even worse was Wesley. Not just for the way he acted but for the horrible 80's clothes we had to see him wearing. From the very beginning I just thought dear god just make the kid a f*cking officer already so he can put on a uniform. Anything to make it so he isn't allowed to choose his own outfits.

Nobody liked Wesley; I'd be surprised if his own mother did.

Given this is in the Prime timeline, would be nice to see a bit of time travel getting little bits of the Next Gen/DS9 era.

Some news: the series was set to premiere in January and has now been pushed back to May. Apparently in order to attempt to make the special effects better.

Though it does show the level of confidence they have in the series if they think it can begin airing in May and do well. Not that shows that air during the summer have never done well..it's just usually not as good a time to be airing it. Especially since I'm sure Trek is probably going to be one of the more expensive shows CBS has.

The first episode will air on tv and the remaining 12 will be put on this online subscription service for CBS. Which means I'll be forced to download the show.

I'll just watch it on Netflix as i'm not in North America.

I'm not sure they're as confident as they might seem. We got absolutely no announcement on the actual anniversary of Star Trek, and it makes me wonder why they said January when they haven't even cast most of the show from what I've read.

Yeah they are still casting some people. But apparently people complained about the crappy special effects in the trailer.

So they could of set it to air in May just because they think the series will fail and thus didn't want to take up any primetime spots.

The problem is that while I have no problems with the Kelvin timeline..I would not want a Trek tv show to be set at the same pace as those movies. Which I get the feeling that is what they are going to try to do. With a focus on action as opposed to character development and stories that really make you think.

I'm guessing that is why they tossed in the character. So even little kids too young to really know any better might have some character to "relate" to.

Wil Wheaton did say that one time on set this one actor called him a pussy due to the fact he didn't play football. So it was kind of worth it.

I think having a kid on board could've been cool. Most of the fault should lie on the writers of season 1 who screwed it up. They could've played with the angst of a kid who doesn't fit in with all the adults but badly wants to. Or any number of interesting things, but instead they opted for the boring perfect boy genius angle.

The youngsters growing up throughout the series thing worked much better on DS9 with Nog and Jake IMO.

Basically because Nog and Jake acted like actual kids would.

Plus I can believe in aliens and omnipotent beings, but I refuse to believe Ashley Judd would ever be interested in Wesley Crusher.

i thought jake was really annoying. not quite on the level of wesley, but not that far off...especially in the later seasons.

Noticing that Lavarr Burton also directed a decent number of Voyager episodes.

I disagree, I don't like how they are essentially getting political and telling Trek fans to vote for a specific person.

I'd prefer they leave the politics out of it, just concentrate on making good Trek, we don't need to hear about who you want to be president.
