More L’Rell!!

I thought L’Rell was such a good character with complex motivations and would have had endless compelling storylines. I want her back!

The problem is there's only so many times they can keep redesigning what's supposed to be the same aliens. You accept it going from TOS to TMP/TNG because you know they were upgrading from what they were able to do in the 1960s. But once you've asked the audience to make a big suspension of disbelief on something like that you can't keep asking them to suspend disbelief on the same thing over and over again.
