Hi! I'm a self-employed illustrator
I enjoy discussing/learning about/posting:
Star Trek - I love all the series so far (DS9 is my fave)
Non-Eurocentricity and genuine representation of it in the arts.
Also, Language - which I suck at. But its so interesting!
Current obsessive art / worldbuilding / poetry project: https://www.instagram.com/oh_hai_ku/
And If you want to support me:
when a white person says that they're "color blind" in response to discussion about racism, they think that they're saying "i am a tolerant person."
however, what they're actually saying is "i can't see racism, so i won't acknowledge it", which is a really messed up way to look at the world
closing our eyes and putting our heads in the sand doesn't make something go away. racism is here to stay until it is acknowledged, explicitly called out by name, and strongly addressed in every community.

Either way, I think they're doing an incredible job of telling a story arc with episodes that stand out on their own, allowing a little more breathing room for characters etc, and even appeasing to people who are obsessed with continuity.
I like a degree of continuity, but I mean, with Star Trek you can't get too caught up in it. There's an episode in the original series where the Enterprise time travels, just because they could?!
Star Trek Discovery Show more
I'm coming away from these episodes with very little to say other than "that was great, how does anyone not like this"
The flack it got in the first season reminded me that creators are under a lot of pressure to explain stuff so instantly nowadays. I mean, maybe that's always been the case. But I think since there's a lot more independent creators able to critique stuff, as well as some transparency about how much some TV writers wing it, there's a lot more scrutiny.
Discovery S02E05 (“Saints of Imperfection”) and Section 31 Show more
Got some helpful clarification about why Section 31 seems far more officially sanctioned than I recall. According to this TrekCore post, it started out that way in Enterprise—only later, by the time we get to DS9, is it rogue and off the books. Gonna have to re-watch some of those ENT episodes to refresh my memory. http://trekcore.com/blog/2019/02/star-trek-discovery-review-saints-of-imperfection/

But, they really fleshed out the other characters really well, so its easily forgivable.
I thought the way they gave the Counseler a tragic back story kind of diminished the impact of his character a lot. I know it does a lot of the 'everyone has their own story' thing, but I think he was a great example of one of those villains that are so convinced that they're good (see also: Gul Dukat) and want everyone to know it

I binged all of it recently. For the most part, I think its amazing. My main qualms were Piper, and how they sorta absolve the Counselor (who's name I can't recall)
The Piper problem is in lotsa shows - white main character who is meta textually referenced (or implied) as the white main character. I get that there's a of of commentary that can and should be made about this, but at some point it becomes a vicious cycle of privilege for actors
The results aren't surprising, but the questions themselves are a good insight into how varied British dialects are. And, each question has a picture of a map showing you the regions where your last answer applies.
The only problem was there wasn't any indication of whether I could select more than one answer or not on each question, some I could, some I couldn't. Here's my results anyway.
This is fun/good/interesting. It'll give you a bunch of questions related to your vocabulary, syntax and pronunciation and pinpoint your regional dialect on a UK map. There's an option on this first page for non-UK people to do it too, in case you want to take part but not mess up the data!
