|On the website:
there is an excerpt from an interview with Battlestar Galactica producer Ronald D. Moore, in which he talks about his work on Star Trek The Next Generation and Star Trek Deep Space Nine. My interpretation of his remarks boils down to 'worrying about continuity stifles creativity'.
“You start worrying more and more about just coloring between the lines than you are making new and engaging stories. Plus the simple fact that you can't keep it straight.”
For Warren or Jim: do you find maintaining continuity to be a problem when writing the Destroyer stories?
Do you agree with his position that continuity should be sacrificed for the sake of a good story?
