It's not just about being qualified for the job, it's also about meshing well with the rest of the team. We watch all sorts of sci-fi here - ok, I'm not sure we have an Andromeda fan in the house, but we have rabid BSG, Dr. Who, and Stargate fans aplenty - but a sneering dismissal of Trek wouldn't stand you in particularly good stead.hansari said:I'm gonna be honest, the Kirk/Picard thing kinda turned me off.Archon said:Think you have what it takes to work for the gaming industry?
I mean using "zombie apocalypse" as a significant deciding factor makes sense. That concept is timeless in the gaming world. But Star Trek is dated now (sorry to break some of your hearts), and the idea that such a comparison will fairly ween out new blood is silly.
I'm sure there are some members of younger generations who follow Star Trek like a cult, but there are so many more sci-fi options out there now. BattleStar Gallactica...Stargate...Andromeda...Firefly...
So the question either needs to be altered to be fairer for those who don't scour past tv sitcoms (the franchise has only recently enjoyed a boost in popularity with 2009 Star Trek) or dropped entirely.
After-all... I imagine the reason you don't have a "favorite table-top game" question is because of the same point...
(unless I'm wrong...which means I'm just not qualified to be a reporter on the video game industry...)
