Discovery, sexual violence Show more
While I really enjoyed #startrek #Discovery during it's initial run, there were a lot of things I didn't like. Culber's death, and the brief period where L'Rell is portrayed as a sexual predator weren't fun.
Rewatching it now, these moments don't feel as uncomfortable because I didn't have to sit with them for an entire week. I wonder if that was the view the writers had as well.

Reading about A Fragment Out of Time by Diane Marchant, the first published Kirk/Spock fanfic.

I'm a logistician, not a soil scientist.
DeFores Kelley is a snack, do not @ me (unless it is with pics of DeForest Kelley)
Dammit Jim! I'm a precision instrument repairer, not a farm equipment mechanic!
In other #StarTrek notes, I'm really tantalized by comment about #DS9 that "at least from Season 3 on, camera operators were framing ‘action-safe’ for widescreen — in order to future-proof [the episodes] for eventual, possible, widescreen release."
CC @valondar in the off chance you didn't already know :)
