Tell me who your fav Star Trek character is and why, plz.

For science. 

b’elanna torres, because it was so important to me to see a washed-up, unloved young woman full of bitterness and self-loathing not only prove herself a hundred times over but slowly heal and build herself a family. and she is exactly what i would have given anything to see in a fictional character when i was a little girl: a latina woman who was not conventionally attractive but still pretty, who was an eminence in her scientific field, who experienced anger but had nuance and wasn’t just a telegraphed tomboy, who didn’t define herself through the men in her life, and who eventually worked through her pain and became a better person
