Writer-producer-director, Robert Meyer Burnett, talks about the concept of the “Mary Sue” and whether or not Star Trek: Discovery’s main character, Michael Burnham, isn’t a variation on that – called a “Wesley.”

Rob also gives an update on the status of the IICFF (Intergalactic Imagination Connoisseurs’ Film Festival) and provides a brief timeline for final submissions, judging and presentations. RMB also makes an appeal to the PGS to help make folks aware of the movies presented in the film festival (which is now accessible off the Burnettwork website).

A lively discussion of current topics in the worlds of genre enterainment, followed up with letters from viewers and much more … on today’s ROBSERVATIONS!
