Well since the Husnack are described as a non-humanoid species with blue blood and 7 tentacles, four of which are used for locomotion, probably just as well they were wiped out and didn't need to be duplicated using CGI of the time or bad puppetry.

He rebuilt his home from the ruins of the planet, but do they call him "Kevin the Housebuilder," no. He tried to deceive Picard into leaving them alone on the planet, but do they call him "Kevin the Picard Deceiver," no. But you f*ck one species...

Keving Uxbridge was a douwd, a creature of such immense power that he rivaled the Q. The difference is he had a strict code of ethics, and in one moment he committed something so unspeakable that he was left alone to dwell in his guilt forever.

Eh... Star Trek Online is set in the prime universe, and the books are considered (soft or beta) cannon -- subject to being overridden by new TV or movies -- but stand until they are.

I haven't been in STO since before Discovery launched so I dunno how it's interacted with Discovery and Picard.

I've always believed the Prophets were the Bajorans from the future who ascended to energy beings and took up residence in the wormhole where all time is experienced and accessible at once.
They always said of themselves: "We are of Bajor".

That was a great episode except for Troi again getting mentally tortured.  I know they had to explain her off the episode but ... sheesh!!

Also Kevin played a general on M*A*S*H whose son died but he learned nothing about the horrors of war and immediately ordered another attack, yada yada yada.
The guy does emotional episodes well!

If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend reading the novelization of Generations (or better yet, the audiobook, because it's read by John DeLancie).

It includes the scene were Kirk is using the futuristic parachute, that they cut from the movie... After filming it. Shatner loves to complain about everything they had to do to get the shot, and then the director just cuts it.

There's a prequel to that set in modern day Earth. About a retirement party for the immortal. Who is from Earth.
It's written by the same writer and made into film by his son. It's very well written as play set in one set in 'real time'.

And when the non-Husnocks living on Husnock worlds (assuming there are any) suddenly have no Husnocks around... well shiat, it's scavenger city!  Grab a nice spaceship, fill it up with loot, and scram as fast as you can for the nearest Ferengi fence.

Even as a kid, I found Picard's statement to sound profund but really it just made no sense. Earth has a history of prosecuting people who commit genocide (kid version: we have wars and stuff about genocide what about that stuff in Kosovo wtf Picard). Nowadays I just know it was a way to excuse atrocities in a tv series that was only thinking about AMerican audience (who, at the time, overwhelmingly argued against joining the UN's conventions, which I didn't know as a kid). Meanwhile, if Picard was being profound, he was talking about Uxbridge's godlike power being beyond the Federation's ability to police. In other wards, Picard was entirely about might-makes-right in that scene. I think it farked me up as a teenager because it had me questioning the law's ability to deal with genocide, as if it was beyond "crime" and only war is the answer to genocide in-progress. It had me taking the arms dealer side of genocide instead of human rights.

Or he was being pragmatic.  Who cares if ant has a problem with the boot, except the ants?  So if you're an ant, why bother, even if it makes you feel self-righteous to indict a boot.

This alien just killed an entire galactic species with a thought.

Picard's statement wasn't just that the scope of his crime was beyond Federation legal jurisprudence, but how would the Federation even possibly prosecute him? And what would be the ramifications of the attempt? No more Federation?

It was clear that his guilt was punishment enough, and that he was damning himself to live out a fantasy purgatory as his only means of coping with his trauma. Consider that in the 24th century the purpose of imprisonment is rehabilitation, in that sense he has already voluntarily imprisoned himself therefore there is nothing further that the Federation or Picard could do to him. So Picard did the only thing he could do: Leave him alone.

Oh I didn't say they're not good. I've even read a few.

But it's been a longstanding policy of Paramount that only televised stuff is canon (this includes the animated series and the movies).

This contrasts with Star Wars, which decided EVERYTHING was canon, including comic books, movies, toys, video games, board games, right on down to the 4-panel strip on the back of Frosted Flakes with free toy inside.....

That is, until JJ got his grubby little mystery box hands on it and decided NONE OF IT was canon! You wasted your whole life collecting EU crap for no reason at all!!

To be fair, Lucas always said the EU stuff was canon until it wasn't.  Hence the 8 different layers of G-canon/s-canon/c-canon/etc.

And those YA books with the emperor's son who had a third eye in the back of his head for some reason.

I don't know... I wouldn't want to hang out on a planet with billions of dead people and I don't know how they died.  Or if everybody on the planet is dead.  Or if other Husnocks are due to come back to the planet at any time and might find living aliens a little suspect... Yeah, eventually they find out all of the Husnocks are dead, but until then you'd have to assume you could be blamed for the genocide at any second.  Better off getting as much loot as fast as possible and getting out of there.

Doctor Who has more consistent writing than all of Trek. Saying books don't count when the writers contradict themselves from season to season, and series to series is being unreasonably picky, and just gatekeeping.
