Re: General Discussion: The Kazon

Is it just me, or are there like, no women at all amongst the Kazon?

That seems to me another part of the racialized mess.

Re: Fantasy Appalachia

The Apocalypse World campaign I played in with Vincent and Meg was 'Windmills of Appalachia'; our Hardhold was atop a mountain ridge among abandoned wind turbines. I was a Chopper whose crew rode around on tricked-out 4-wheel ATVs. It was great. The main issue I'd expect to encounter with something ...

Re: S4E21 - The Drumhead

This episode is also noteworthy in having an Admiral that actually had his shit together. When he just stand up and walks out on her without saying anything... ouch.

Re: S4E20 Qpid

I have it on good authority that a significant portion of Vash's appeal is as proof of concept that an age-appropriate woman could totally score with Patrick Stewart if she was saucy enough. I personally find the idea that she's a modern role-reversal of the usual Kirk/alien hottie of the week, with...

Re: S4E11 Data's Day

Solid episode, one of those ones where the SF is just there, nicely integrated into the background, and more evidence that Brent Spiner is actually the creamy moral center of this entire confection.

Re: S1E12 - Datalore

This is the first of the 'Brent Spiner shows off his acting chops' episodes and I love it for that.

Lore's jealousy over what Data has and he doesn't is laid down here, and it's just so perfectly toxic as we'll see in later episodes.

A high point of Season 1 afaiac.
