I pay a subscription fee to play official storyline material, not fanfic.
I have not and will not watch anything on network television.
I pay a subscription fee to Comcast to watch cable television, not stuff I could get for free with an antenna.
I also agree with you about not playing foundry missions. The best way to tell whether or not someone is capable of designing a good mission with a compelling story is to see whether or not they are employed by Cryptic. I mean, some of these guys who create foundry missions might have PhD's in English Literature or Computer Science but clearly they just are not good enough to get a paycheck from Cryptic, so playing what they design is going to be a waste of time and money.
