Cael’s housemate made this and I think it’s incredible
this is some airbending shit right here
When even the Radio Times is calling bullshit, you know you’ve got some major characterisation problems…
"You hit like a girl," the strong female character says
"Stop being such a girl," the strong female character says
"Man up," the strong female character says
"Shut the fuck up," I whisper
#stop using my gender as an insult
Time to bring this back
if you’re saying you’re not reading this in their voices you’re lying
My fellow Trekkies will understand the reference.
OK, so, in Generations, Deanna takes the helm at short notice and ably executes evasive and targeting manoeuvres during a battle with a Klingon ship, which the Enterprise WINS in part due to her piloting skill, even though piloting is not her main job. THEN she prepares for and executes a successful starship separation, while simultaneously overseeing the evacuation of the crew to the saucer section. She pilots the saucer to a safe distance so that it isn’t destroyed by the explosion of the drive section, thereby saving the lives of everyone on the ship.
Helm controls go offline immediately following the saucer separation - Deanna has no control over the ship during the crash. The best pilot in Starfleet couldn’t have done any better.
In Nemesis, Captain Picard ORDERS Deanna to ram the Scimitar and she does an EXCELLENT job of it. If, say, Data had done this, we’d be celebrating it as a crowning moment of badass.
I know this is just a joke and I know I have a bit of a sense of humour failure when it comes to Deanna, but come on. She gets enough stick as it is without her triumphs being misrepresented as failures.
