    Explain what the Prime Directive is and its history in ST. Examine how ST: TNG emphasized the guiding principle with Picard’s pontification on the subject using specific examples where the PD was central to the plot. Conclude with a discussion on how and why the PD has fallen to the wayside first under Rick Berman and now with J.J. Abrams and Justin Lin.

        Critiquing Canadian Television

        Due South, Power Play, Flashpoint and The Listener are all TV series made in Canada. Why is there a dearth of diversity in Canadian productions? Given the popularity of Degrassi: The Next Generation and Little Mosque on the Prairie could Canadian TV benefit from exploring the uniqueness of the Canadian experience? What recommendations could be made to help Canadian TV?

        • There's also Murdoch Mysteries to look into. – JennyCardinal 1 year ago

        • (Corner Gas?)There is so much filmed in Canada, particularly in Vancouver. A lot of Sci-Fi. Fringe, The 4400, The 100, Stargate SG-1. Granted, Vancouver is losing some of the hold it had on Sci-Fi television (that's politics of film, not this article).My point is, are you looking for Canadian-produced and created work, or just work that was filmed in Canada, because there is a huge divide between those two? – chandlerwp 1 year ago

        • 100% Canadian productions Chandler is what I would like to see examined. If a movie is just filmed here then I don't think there is much creative control. You are correct that there is a huge divide between the two in terms of how much the producers would have a say in who and what and how these TV shows are made for sure. – Munjeera 1 year ago

        Ranking the Avengers Movies

        What criteria should be used to rank Avengers movies? What ranking would the Avengers movies have? I think 1-10 with 10 being the highest would be a easy reference for ranking. I would love to see what people have ranked already and a discussion for what really makes a great Avengers movie. If this could be timed to be written around the time Civil War is released even better. I found Age of Ultron derivative but know some people loved it. I think originality, the origins story and the villain are key to great conflict and rising tension. Character development, such as in Ironman, also adds flavor. Another often forgotten criteria is the supporting actors. Hope this helps. – Munjeera 6 hours ago

        In what ways did the original Star Trek predict the future?

        There are many ways in which the original Star Trek predicted aspects about the future such as the communicators which mimic cell phones. I would like to find out from Trekkie purists how Gene Roddenberry got it right.

        • Something to consider is that Star Trek has done this as a whole, not just with the Original series. There were many devices in both Voyager and TNG that predict future technology, such as tablets, comm systems, AI computers, and holograms. Perhaps you could compare and contrast each series and their different technology predictions. – Megan Finsel 2 years ago

        • I would like to see an article on the original series since it was 50 years ago or around there as a sort of anniversary of the series when it started Sept. 8, 1966. A kind of homage to the ideas as well as technology that Roddenberry envisioned. One item that comes to mind is the international cast. It is so unusual to have that kink of diversity in terms of a TV series in that time. Referring to specific episodes would also be great when they encountered alien technology that was "ahead." – Munjeera 2 years ago

        • Did Star Trek predict the future or create the future? Are there any modern technologies (i.e., the flip cell phone) that just might have been influenced by Star Trek? – sophiacatherine 2 years ago

        • Finding out what Star Trek influenced in terms of tech would be interesting. I heard that NASA did get some ideas about space technology from Star Trek. – Munjeera 2 years ago

        Great article in sparking a lot of debate. Thanks for highlighting the series. Perhaps the show moves from the letter of the law with Anne to keeping the spirit of Anne.

        Degrassi has always maintained its cutting edge and most importantly never talked down to teens. I think that really is what makes the show so good is that Degrassi never made it seem like being a teenager was easy and portrayed angst in an intelligent way.

        I think TV has gotten much better over the last couple of decades. I never watched TV as a kid and adult. I just recently started to enjoy TV in the last two years. A big improvement on shows like Three’s Company. Sitcoms in the 70s and 80s were brutal.
