Re: TNG S4: The Host

Peter G

"I know actual people who do believe such things, that the attachment to a particular form is a failing that needs to be grown out of. This is true not only in regards to the gendered sphere, but there are also for transhumanists who believe we need to get past our concept of "human being" itself as tied to our current physical form. There may be some overlap between these positions, although I'm not entire clear on the...uh, epistemology of the arguments sufficiently to proffer an opinion on that particular point.

I think it's reasonably clear that The Host is at least opening up the question of whether the Trill aren't perhaps a more evolved form of society, even if the whole symbiont thing seems icky to us mere humans. And to be frank DS9 could have gone a lot further exploring the ways in which the Trill really are different and have a superior perspective (having lived multiple lives). The closest we get to an attempt to show them as being really different was in the pilot, where Jadzia acts as if she's evolved beyond getting excited by flirting. That ended up being a non-starter, but at least it was something beyond merely having a jumble of personalities down in there somewhere."

so what you're saying is it's wrong to be straight or even gay?

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

That's a little harsh. I mean I watched caravan of courage, and couldn't get through it like ros. Although I did enjoy the holiday special more, that was supposed to be more light hearted and comedic compared to the canon films.

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Anyone else think the reason Jammers never posted his review was because he was so afraid after getting chewed out for praising last jedi?

Re: DSC S1: The Wolf Inside

@ Dobber "So you die Captain. And we all move up in rank." - Mirror Chekov. The killer doesn't become the captain.

Killy did. So are we to assume she was already the second in command when she offed the captain?

Re: DSC S1: The Wolf Inside

@ peter G His second action is almost as ridiculous, which is to attack the Captain on a ship where once she's dead he'll be killed right after so that the XO can become Captain.

@ED I agree about him trying to kill her back on the ship.

I thought according to Terran rules it's the person who kills the captain who becomes the captain, you know, like the pirates in Archer.
