Never begin your point with ignorant and baseless rhetoric.

While in general, I agree that wishing death upon or killing anyone should be avoided, are there never any circumstances where killing is morally permissible? Time travel paradoxes, slippery slopes, and butterfly effects aside, would you not go back in time and kill Hitler or Stalin if you could? Or I'm curious how you would handle the trolley scenario.

Romans 12:17-21 sums up the point nicely.

"Return evil for evil to no one. Take into consideration what is fine from the viewpoint of all men. If possible, as far as it depends on you, be peaceable with all men. Do not avenge yourselves, beloved, but yield place to the wrath; for it is written: “‘Vengeance is mine; I will repay,’ says Jehovah.” But “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by doing this you will heap fiery coals on his head.” Do not let yourself be conquered by the evil, but keep conquering the evil with the good."

If more people did this, the world wouldn't be in its current condition.

And to answer your hypothetical trolley scenario, I would walk away. I'm not responsible for either group nor am I responsible for a runaway trolley. The reason? "time and unexpected events overtake them all." (Ecclesiastes 9:11)

But on the other hand Roger Ailes dead. Small comfort though because that guy should have been killed by some time traveler from the dystopian future.

Wishing death upon someone is the lowest form of human expression and a lack of empathy for the surviving family members.

Don't care. His death is a net gain for humanity, and would have been a lot more of a net gain had it happened sooner. He was human garbage. I'm not going to pretend every life is sacred, or equal, or even worth the oxygen is sucks down just to virtue signal how empathetic and kind I am.

When someone dies who I think has put more suffering into this world than they removed, I will absolutely be happy about it.

Whether or not you act on such thoughts is irrelevant. That you're okay with wishing murder upon another because of an unjust slight or because they don't share your point of view is the same kind of thinking terrorists use to justify their heinous actions. I pity you.

Where questions of morality are involved I'd have to say In The Pale Moonlight tops my list of favorite DS9 episodes.

Mine too. Section 31 is basically a spy thriller. It could be the Rogue One of the Star Trek series.

Star Trek Discovery looks pretty good. I might sign up to CBS all access for one month to binge watch it, then cancel again. I'm sure roughly 99% of all Trek fans will probably do the same thing.

Trailer disappointed me. The series looks second rate and similar to Enterprise. I was hoping this series would break new ground, like delving into the mysterious inner workings of Section 31. The few times they appeared was enough to pique my interest.

Was I the only one who was rooting for Section 31 in those DS9 episodes? The finally made the Federation look bad ass. And not a gaggle of liberal pussies.

You're not alone. S31's tactics are, shall we say, less than admirable. The DS9 episode "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges" and "When It Rains..." are two excellent examples of Starfleet's silent approval of the clandestine operation, and "Extreme Measures" demonstrates Section 31 may have more power over the Federation than is publically known, even to the Federation themselves. Both the original cast (Shatner, Nimoy, etc.) and the next gen cast (Stewart, Frakes, Spiner, Dorn, Burton, etc.) are gone. I'm not ready to watch another Enterprise clone. The only thing that'll interest me in a new series is discovering new areas of the Federation that have not been explored. Section 31 would be a great series addition. There are amazing stories they could tell with that group.

Imagine if all of World of Warcraft was Alterac Valley. That about sums up Overwatch. Unless Blizzard introduces a single player story campaign, the game will remain a grindy cash-shop centric FPS MOBA.

My motto is similar: Exfoliation is the better part of shower.

Make sure you use organic farm-raised 100% exfoliation. The kind with tiny chunks of wombat flakes.

It also helped that Blue was in the name of the dog food.

Why would you put the whole series on hold? The problem is not with the series, it's a problem with one game that was made poorly. These exec's are so reactionary.

To deflate the hate. Gamers have short attention spans. But, as we saw in No Man's Sky's case, not defusing and evaluating the situation can create problems. So instead of pushing forward and risking more damage to their valuable IP, they pause until things simmer down. Meanwhile, it gives them time to think up a strategy on where to take the game and which studio can deliver the best experience. There's still a huge Mass Effect fan base, so an anomaly like Andromeda isn't the end of the franchise for EA. It's like the Star Wars prequels didn't kill the franchise.
