Jean-Luc Picard: Mars is burning, tens of thousands are dead, and nobody is thinking, nobody is listening, they're just reacting!
Raffi Musiker: Wait a minute. What happened in there, JL?
Jean-Luc Picard: They said that our plan was "unfeasible." Half of them never wanted to rescue the Romulans in the first place, and the rest are... are just frightened. I never dreamed that Starfleet would give in to intolerance and fear.

I'm liking this

No, Gene Roddenberry Is absolutely NOT Turning In His Grave Some losers with nothing else to do are giving their opinion. Well a hater's gonna hate I guess. Its a decent departure from STD. The story is almost exactly like a multi-episode STNG or movie, with some interesting twists that do not violate the Star Trek timelines like STD does. It goes and explains the past 14 years in a decent way. If anything, is that its a bit dull, but that's ok, it will pick up.

I really don't know what those spoiled so-called "fans" are expecting. Just complaining for the sake of complaining. Get a life. I'm sure this review will get a lot of dislikes Good, I like it when idiots dislike my reviews.
