    Aren’t you worried that everyone captured by the Gorn (or infected) don’t have a future in a ST:TOS reboot?

    I’m not, actually. One of my cohosts on We Are Starfleet, Ian Buckley, also suggested that if this isn’t a leading to a TOS reboot, then perhaps it’s a Star Trek: Phase II redevelopment. I’ll take either one if it means I get more time with these characters and this cast.

    Aside from that, TV has fallen into an “Everyone must die or it’s not good TV, or it’s not bold enough,” sort of habit. I don’t like that. As much as I loved most of Game of Thrones, you don’t have to kill everyone in your cast. People can be willing to put everything on the line and come close to death, but not actually die, and for me, it still has the same emotional resonance. Also, I think there would be a massive riot. Everyone in this cast is so dang good, killing them off after season 2 would be unforgiveable. I’m still frustrated about the loss of Hemmer, but I do like that his death has had some meaning and emotional resonance. I still want Bruce Horak back as a regular character.
