I like the idea of Seska being a Cardassian agent, but betraying Voyager to the Kazon was just a silly thing for her to do. They should have accidentally discovered her identity as a Cardassian and had her have to remain onboard as part of the crew, being really awkward.
Imo, they should’ve had her begrudgingly switch allegiances and serve Janeway bc serving is just what Cardassians do.
Like, “I don’t like Janeway. I don’t agree with Janeway. But she is the highest authority on this ship, and it is my duty to help her keep Voyager strong.”
And everyone else isn’t sure whether to encourage this or tell her that she can give some input.
Every time Janeway makes a decision based on compassion or make a detour for another nebula they cut to Seska making a horrified face.
I’m listening to Orville Peck that has that amazing gay cowboy aesthetic and now I’m thinking about an AU where Tom Paris is obsessed with the Wild West to the point where he always dresses as a cowboy and everyone eventually just accepts this.
You hear the clink clink of his spurs as he wanders down the hall of Voyager. He calls the Delta Flyer his “steed”. He’s the only one allowed to call Janeway m’am.
Just wanted to say thank you for having such a quality tumblr. I have been scrolling through the depths in attempt to distract myself from the horrors outside. There are so many funny / insightful posts!
I’m so glad to hear you like it! We all need those distractions right now so I totally get it.
Have a good one anon.
Cadet Nog serves as a living communication system aboard the Defiant.
I loved how Nog not being human was always framed as a benefit, not a problem. He is allowed to thrive and become a valued member of the crew based on his abilities and skills, some of which comes natural with Ferengi biology or culture.
