Starfleet-Houses » Lieutenant B’Elanna Torres: Aggressive, temperemental and very volatine, B’Elanna is nevertheless a brilliant engineer, very determined to push the limits of the possible in her field. While she ascribes to Klingon honour codes to a lesser degree than full-blooded Klingons, B’Elanna still has a very strong sense of morals, justice and honour - on the downside, she can also be very emotional, overaggressive and overzealous, as well as easily upset. She is placed in Gryffindor House.
please rethink the sandbox, Worf; otherwise you will find shit where you least expect it.
look at Data thinking he doesn’t have feelings when he loves his little cat so damn much
Worf’s like ‘the FUCK I took time off to hang out with you people’
note how the boys all get named characters from the Robin Hood tales, and the girls are just… randoms?
note also how although Marina Sirtis and Gates McFadden have had more fencing training than Patrick Stewart, they don’t get to do any of the sword-fighting
I take two things from this: the writers of TNG were sometimes sexist buttheads in that special, clueless, oh-we-didn’t-even-think-of-that way, and Q really doesn’t like Deanna and Beverly. (Remember the time he briefly turned Bev into a dog?)
(I hope Beverly and Deanna made up OC stories for themselves. ‘I’m a village wise-woman who knows all about herbal medicine, but got driven out on suspicion of witchcraft, so now I hide out in the forest and act as the Merry Men’s medic.’ ‘Ooh, that’s good! Okay, I’m a mysterious gypsy fortune-teller… I wish I had a big swirly skirt and jingly earrings.’)
(I also wish there were an episode where Picard and Riker got captured and locked up somewhere and Bev and Deanna rescued their asses Dread Pirate Roberts style.)
^ Hey yeeeah! I didn’t even notice their lack of names. Though I did know about the sword thing (oh the irony)… I still loved this episode :P
