You are free to offer your opinions on a show, episode, book, film, film series, cinematic universe, etc., as long as it applies to that item, and not to the stated or assumed political views of the producers, writers, actors, key grip, best boy, intern, etc., of said item. In short, you want to talk about a show or movie, talk about the show or movie.
Others are free to disagree with your opinion. (You are not entitled to express your opinion in a vacuum.) BUT that opposing opinion must follow the same requirements above that the original opinion had to follow, as well as not bringing in the assumed political views of the original poster. (I leave out "stated" as they should not state any political position here on STPMA.)
ALSO, do not toss about derogatory labels at someone who offers an opinion in opposition to yours. No name calling, political labels (SJW, etc.,) questioning their humanity, morality, ethics, true fan status, or your assumption they are in the business to protect a certain fandom (gatekeeping, etc.). Again, discuss the show or movie not the politics or motives of another poster.
If you dislike something, it's perfectly fine to say so. However, posting your dislike every time someone else says anything positive about a show or movie, essentially stating the same thing over and over again is not acceptable. If you have something new to add, or are replying to a specific point in someone else's comment, okay. But if it's just to state once again, "IT SUCKS!" Don't.

The Cage uniforms?
Those are the ones.
I get that they look dated, but I'm sure a halfway decent costume designer could've tweaked them to make them look a little more modern whilst still keeping in line with what has been before. The one good thing I will say about the Discovery uniforms is that they are uniform, everyone is wearing the same thing, as far as I can see.

discovery looks more like they're trying to put abram's crap into the prime universe, so i'm ambivalent about it, and the less said about the cockroach klingons the better. honestly, i'm more excited (slightly) about the Orville than about discovery.

Cockroach Klingons. Haha. Not a terrible way to describe them.
I feel you about the excitement for Orville vs Discovery. I'm in a similar boat.
