god wesley is such a little bitch manbaby
fun story: my dad is black but because he’s biracial when his skin is less dark like in the winter he gets a lot of “what are you” questions from every person around him because he had a giant Afro. my dad was a special education teacher with the public school system for what was his entire career. he was assigned to teach in a [gag] open custody jail facility for “criminal youth”. my dad worked there in the 80’s, 90’s and a little until 00’s until it was shut down and he was reassigned to a rural high school to work with autistic kids mostly (but any real developmental disabilities)
when he was teaching in the jail one day, this one student kept harassing him at his desk about “what he was” (which my father couldn’t even answer because he’s not going to tell a traumatized child in his care about his fucked up life as a transracial adoptee) so my dad looked him dead in the eyes and said, “cardassian”. the kid asked, “wait where is that?” so my dad said as a joke, “if you can find “cardassia” on this map [on a book on his desk] i’ll [buy you a pizza or something inconsequential]” and the kid sat all day researching lmao bless kids
@dexiheart warning/psa: if you decide to watch season 2 of "picard", you'll absolutely *hate* the last episode.
(maybe you'll enjoy how *easy* it is to hate, idk 🤷♀️)
@tethre honestly i had a hard time with picard episode one subjectively—purely because of my childhood love of picard who was basically my second father and the entire first episode is people shit talking how much they hate picard lol 😭😭
@dexiheart the whole series is not a good look for jean-luc if you ask me, so, yeah, i think it's a good idea to skip that one entirely!
@tethre i am trying to re-watch or fully rewatch as many of the series as i can in a row (movies not included) so after tng, i am doing ds9, voyager, and i am gonna attempt enterprise. and if i survive that i will try picard lol
@dexiheart when I started watching it and heard the thing about Cardassians reclaiming a planet I thought it was going to be a Maquis thing but no, it’s just the weird space pervert giving Wesley magic powers over a backdrop of the writers being weird about colonialism
@cinebox you’re correct and wesley being treated like this wunderkid adonis white kid who is impeachable and perfect is exactly why i hate the character and every narrative around him

christ where do i even start with this “we gave indigenous people a planet cause we colonized their entire fuckin lives but now we are giving it back to the cardassians now” episode
