    Default Re: Confirmed! Star Trek: Discovery coming in 2017

    "No god rule"? What a load of nonsense.

    Yes, Roddenberry was an atheist. The show, and the franchise, are not. Religions and faiths both human and alien have featured prominently in the show right from the original series--when Roddenberry would have had the most creative control.

    Not saying "god" or praising Jesus every other sentence is not a "no god rule."

    It's part of the TOS bible. The characters can't say "god". And displays of religions only increased after his control started to wane. But don't take my word for it, it is a known thing...scroll down to the "analysis" section of this article.

    This website is very much a fan website (Has lots of interesting information, exploring it is good way to spend some time).

    Don't take my post to be an uninformed blanket statement of doom and gloom. I don't follow track with Roddenberry's Religiophobia, but that doesn't mean that I didn't/don't enjoy the first two seasons of The Next Generation. Which was my point. As for Discovery, I am curious to see which direction they will blow in. If it really is sticking to those first two years of TNG, or going the way of DS9/Voyager when it comes to religion. Originally I did think they were going for that rule to the letter.
    But now I am not sure.
