  1. A place to put your favourite Amity quotations.
  2. B'Elanna Torres was the first consistently angry, frustrated, realistic depiction of a woman I relate to. In fact, I think she's the only woman like that in the media I've been exposed to. She's not just brushed off as being annoying. She's not a minor character. She's outspoken, she's talented, she doesn't take nonsense from anyone, and people work with her. She's one of the few women in Star Trek that does not get along with everyone. Also, Torres isn't just written off as "that [...]" by the crew. Obviously there are episodes where that's the case, but she doesn't go through a major personality change when people take issue with her. She's apologetic only for when she crosses a line, not apologetic for her entire character (which does happen frequently in media). Not to mention, she's a bold and outspoken woman who became Chief Engineer. Over the nice guy. And she was Chief Engineer whilst pregnant. Lieutenant Torres is my hero. Characters like Torres are important. Science is great, but getting down and dirty into engines, electronics, or anything involving grease is considered a masculine profession -- Torres defies that, and is still the only female Chief Engineer on screen so far. Hell, even most of the women mentioned in the OP are medical/science based. While Kathryn Janeway and Seven of Nine are great and important characters in their own right, they're considered softer spoken next to Torres; bold, yes, but not necessarily as brash or aggressive. It frustrates me that Torres is frequently under-appreciated. Yeah, Janeway "got the crew home", but remember, it was Torres that made great strides in keeping the ship together (and even attempting ridiculous feats to get them home sooner) in order to do that.
  3. Alright everybody, crack out your magnifying glasses and ILI pages. Time for the annual game of "Name the new Star Trek shows' alien races".
  4. Going back through my sims to update my wiki page and stumbled across this one:
  5. And that, ladies and gents, is how I got Bohemian Rhapsody stuck in my head for the rest of the night.
  6. And that, in a nutshell, is why Section 31 is banned in 118. 😎
  7. Is there any particular reason La Forge was left out of this poll? Seems like a glaring oversight of best bro.
  8. I'm sorry — could you put on a jacket or something? I think I'm getting a cold just by looking at you.
