Re: TNG S5: The Outcast

This episode isn't perfect, but it's literally the first time I saw transgender representation on television. I totally disagree that it demonizes non-binary people, just says a society shouldn't force all people to be non-binary. And the episode came out in 1992. That was 30 years ago.

My criticisms of the episode are a lot of Worf's comments at the Poker game; Worf has never seemed like a sexist character to me so him randomly calling a Poker game with a lot of wild cards a "woman's game" felt off.

I liked Soren. I liked her and Riker's relationship. I thought the ending was sad, but felt authentic.

And as a trans woman who has had surgery, I'll just say, appendectomies are too expensive.

Re: TOS S3: The Cloud Minders

Let's not forget about the ridiculously sexist gag in this episode.

SPOCK: "Remarkable. The finest example of sustained antigravity elevation I've ever seen. "

Followed immediately by our first view of Droxine, in that incredible gravity-defying dress.

Re: VOY S4: Scientific Method

The first time I saw this episode, I loved its humor, mystery, and suspense. With additional viewing, I learned to appreciate how it dealt with the issue of unethical medical experimentation.

Regarding medical experimentation: There's a Wikipedia article on the unethical experiments performed by American scientists, done on people either unaware or helpless. The experiments were beyond horrible. Star Trek writers must have known about these through congressional hearings held from the 70's through the 90's. Here's the link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/

Re: VOY S4: Day of Honor

I actually remember where I was and what I was doing when I first saw the final bit with B'Ellana and Tom. (In the living room, doing a thorough cleaning.) I knew little about ST Voyager at the time, but was so struck by the scene that I became a fan instantly.
As to the Cataati: I took their demands as normal for a starving and demoralized people. And Seven's solution showed her further humanization - in the best way possible. It was truly a "Day of Honor" for more than one of the Voyager crew.
