Re: Confessions of a Closet Trekkie

Why does being a 'Trekkie' have to be so 'uncool'. I hate this stereotype! This needs to change! Yes the fans of science fiction are generally smarter than the average, but frak it, that's something to be proud of!

I am a 17 year old girl who openly rabbles on about how much I love Trek, Star Wars, BSG, and Lord of the Rings (the latter actually being really cool at my school). And my social life is really good (plus I'm really sporty and am in the running for Head Girl)... Being a SciFi fan does not lead to ridicule as you so incorrectly put. The very fact that that is your opinion is probably fuelling this imaginary minority view that you have conjured up. And frankly, any guy, no matter how hot they are, no matter how god-like there abs are, has to have a significant level of intelligence that he can actually appreciate the world of SciFi, otherwise, no frakkin thanks!

So, just remember: in the end, people will judge you anyway. Don't live your life trying to impress others. Live your life impressing yourself.

Re: VOY S2: Resolutions

I absolutely loved this episode. But as a science fiction writer, I would have done at least two things differently:
1. Harry should have led a mutiny, which is always an interesting scenario to explore, especially when dealing with the circumstances.
2. After the warrior speech, J should have kissed C which should have led directly to a love scene. It had already been hinted at anyway. Chakotay trying to stare down her towel when she got out of the bath for crying out loud! He wanted her!
In conclusion, J/C forever, and J/7 was utter crap.

Re: BSG S3: Unfinished Business

Right. I absolutely loved this episode, and it is possibly my favourite so far. Even putting aside the beautiful formatting and music, the different interweaving plot lines are just fantastic.
There's been some unjustified criticism over Adama's motives in this one. It's perfectly clear and also in keeping with his character. Adama is constantly blaming himself for the tragedies that befall them, and sees himself as the one who must accept responsibility, that's his nature! He's just so damn noble! And he sees the whole debacle that was New Caprica as his responsibility, he was supposed to protect them and yet he had to flee. His speech after throwing the fight is yet another demonstration of the goodness of his soul. He loves his crew unconditionally but blames himself for letting it cloud his judgement (he can't see it as the thing that defines it).
And by the way, his growing love with Roslin is just perfection! I hope to the bottom of my heart that they end up together! At the start of BSG I had reservations about Roslin, I questioned her integrity. But now, she's undoubtedly one of my favourites. I frakking love her!
Now, Lee and Kara. Lee. And. Kara. You have to be blind to try and deny that they are soul mates. The flashback of some of their most romantic moments at the end was so emotional. It's obvious just how frighteningly much they love and need each other. Kara was so scared by the intensity of this realisation that she turned to Anders. This was just denial. And the brutal fight allowed us to see her coming to terms with her true feelings. Just look at the expression on her face when she first saw Lee fighting Helo from the balcony. The first time I saw it I was beyond ecstatic to find out the truth about the rift between them. And frankly, if Starbuck and Apollo don't end up together, I will personally complain to the writers.
It's clear that Starbuck is deeply tormented by horrors in her past, exacerbated and drawn out painfully by her ordeals with Leeoban. And it's written in the stars that she will finally find peace in her love for her soul mate... Apollo.
I have become such a massive fan of Katee Sackoff because of this show, and Kara Thrace is hands down my favourite character, one who inspires me in my own writing (yep, I write science fiction).
This show is frakking incredible, undoubtedly the best that has ever been seen on television.
And this episode was beyond perfection.
I would give it 5/5, 10/10, hell, 100/100! And Kara and Lee BELONG together. This is not something to be disputed. It is embedded in the very workings of their souls.
STARPOLLO FOREVER!!!!!!!!!

P.S. Lee and Dualla's relationship is so wooden and crap I could cry. They're so wrong for each other. It's sickening. She should have been with Billy.
