    And what exactly did I say that offended your ass so much?

    Is it sacrilege to say anything against the "almighty" Simon Furman ?

    ANYWAY, she was a good writer. And I think I'll watch 'Crossing the Rubicon' tonight, in her honor...

    Wow, I had no idea D.C. Fontana had written an episode of Beast Wars, and what an episode it was.

    RIP. Till all are one.

    It is inappropriate to turn a thread mentioning a person’s death into a comparison between writers for two different mediums.

    So sad to hear, and while I enjoyed plenty of her sci-fi works, Star Trek being my faves, I actually did not know she was a woman! She really has an impressive body of work.

    I'm still watching through BW and Star Trek TOS, and I can't say I recognize the name.
    RIP, and my condolences to her family.

    I suppose that you're correct, but!

    All I really meant was that I thought that 'crossing the rubicon' was the stronger written episode...My form of compliment to her...The "YEAH" part was me exclaiming in excitement that I could (mostly) remember the plot of the Reboot episode Fontana wrote...

    And that I don't know if either writer ''did their homework on the plot, characters, etc...But I strongly think that Fontana probably did...
