You suggest if we cut your character in the part then all of a sudden it is a great story. It doesn't work that way. I'm sorry the role calls for a young Vulcan female lead who is pregnant.
We are not sacrificing good storytelling to fit any players ego. My ego doesn't count because I am not an actor in the show...I am the producer. We are boldly going where no Foundry author has gone before.
I never complained that I can not be my character in the play. Quite the opposite in fact. I am perfectly fine playing a character that is not of my own fashioning, it is one of the things that caught my attention with this particular story. I only stated that with an on stage representation of the character that I am supposed to be portraying, it becomes confusing.
I did in fact comment on the story, saying that it needed to be further fleshed out, but that I expected future installments would accomplish this.
