Watching DS9 

My least favorite character from all Star Trek has arrived.

So far, S1 of DS9 has been Bad, and this just makes it worse.

Like, she's just straight up assaulting Odo. I got no other name for it.

@ajroach42 Being married to the executive producer has its pivileges.

And honestly her role in this episode is kind of creepy, but it does show a side of Odo that becomes relevant later.

I think at some point between TNG and DS9, Lwaxana graduated to an actual Q. That's my explanation.

"maybe we can put her on as a continuing character and then kill her off once and for all in the Dominion arc."

@ajroach42 Majel Barrett-Roddenberry can do whatever she wants in Star Trek, she inherited it. Tho it's weird having her talk to the "computer" which is also her.

@ajroach42 Tho also she's far from my least favorite. Miles O'Boring is worse. All the NuKlingons are super offensively stupid, I miss the old efficient Soviet-era Klingons.

@mdhughes @ajroach42 Pre TNG Klingons from the novels and the FASA rpg are still my favorite. They even managed to explain the difference in appearance without crapping the bed.

@Capheind @ajroach42 The Klingons in the early novels, especially Paul Ford's "The Final Reflection", were alien, but serious and competent.

@mdhughes @ajroach42 Did you mean John Ford? He also wrote the klingon sourcebook for FASA based on his novels.

@Capheind @ajroach42 Yeah, oops. First names are always hard for me, Fred.

@mdhughes @ajroach42 it was generic white guy name #7 instead of #3 lol.
