have I ever mentioned how much of a loser Tom Paris is for being obsessed with 20th century culture

@SeanAloysiusOBrien his way of being obsessed with old earth culture is somehow significantly worse than any of the other "token interest in old earth culture" characters

@SeanAloysiusOBrien if he had just been into cars that would be fine, if he had just been into black and white science fiction serials that would be fine, but BOTH? sonic sez thats no good

@shoofle @SeanAloysiusOBrien it will never happen but imagine that they have somebody who is just obsessed with the events of the 1800s

encyclopedic knowledge of the Season of Revolutions, dozens of colonial wars, the subjugation of hong kong, the few people who know anything about it mildly creeped out

@shoofle @SeanAloysiusOBrien "according to this... literally every cry for freedom was brutally repressed, and the only thing that was even remotely a win for the rights of sapient beings was a bunch of national separatists fighting to own slaves getting their shit kicked in? this is a stupidly depressing era, you alright mate?"

@bryceyoungquist @shoofle @SeanAloysiusOBrien well, there was Janeway getting dicked down by da Vinci, wrong century but it was at least not our own time
