“A true victory is to make your enemy see they were wrong to oppose you in the first place. To force them to acknowledge your greatness.”
    -- Dukat

If you want to understand Dukat (and I’ve taken to eliminating his rank, because at this point, he’s the de facto leader of the Cardassian government, and after this point he doesn’t really have a rank at all), the key is that quote right there. That explains pretty much every single action our favorite Space Hitler has taken since the beginning of the series, stretching into the backstory revealed in flashback episodes. His need to not only be right, but be acknowledged for it, makes Dukat a weirdly prescient creation, or else the rise of social media has made people like him far more visible.

We had Batman V Superman to varying degrees of success... so why not Wonder Woman V Harley Quinn?

Greetings, Wonder Freaks and Geeks! (I'm so glad I lived to see the day those adages would become self-empowering compliments!) This week saw the release of the highly anticipated Superwoman Rebirth, written and drawn by Wonder Woman alumni, Phil Jimenez. 

“When I go home, it will be to Bajor.”

Long-time viewers were probably disturbed a bit by Odo’s abrupt turn to evil last week. I know it disturbed me back when I was originally watching the show. Though Garak was my favorite character overall, Odo was always up there with Kira as my favorite among the regulars. So, to watch this man, who has never been anything but a paragon of justice, suddenly turn to tacitly supporting the Dominion’s tyrannical rule and condemning poor Rom to the firing squad was disturbing.

“I tried. I tried my best to run my establishment under this occupation. But, you know what? It’s no fun. I don’t like Cardassians. They’re mean and arrogant. And I can’t stand the Jem’Hadar. They’re creepy. They just stand there like statues, staring at you. That’s it. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life doing business with these people. I want the Federation back. I want to sell root beer again!”

As a young fan, I used to be frustrated about the lack of really alien-aliens on Star Trek. Oh sure, occasionally you’d get something like the black slime guy who killed Tasha Yar, or a good Janusian Horta, but nine times out of ten, you’re just seeing some guy with slightly different forehead ridges. They even stopped painting their guest stars bold colors, so we don’t get creations like Orions or Andorians. Of course, the reality is, they only have so much money and so much time to get actors into complicated prosthetics. At the end of the day, Star Trek aliens are mostly going to be roughly humanoid for purely practical reasons.

Wonder Woman for President is hardly a new concept, as it's been touted about long before gracing the cover of the first issue of Gloria Steinem's feminist magazine, Ms., In 1972. The concept goes back to Wonder Woman #7 in 1943. It's fairly typical for fans to wish their favorite characters or celebrities would become president during an election year. Imagine how thrilled "Bedtime for Bonzo" fans must have been when Reagan took office?

“I will teach you what you need to know to be a warrior, and you will teach me what I need to know to be a father.”
    -- Lt. Commander Worf

Giving a character family is always a tricky proposition. On one hand, it anchors them to reality, making them relatable to the large swaths of the viewing audience who have families. On the other, it saddles you with a bunch of ancillary characters who, by definition, don’t do a whole lot for your narrative. If their purpose is to contrast with the major character’s crazy life, a.k.a. The Skyler White Dilemma, they have to be boring to serve a purpose in the story. If they’re too focused on the major character, it feels like they have no lives of their own. And let’s be honest, who needs a stinking kid on your show?

Let me catch my breath. I don't even know where to begin. The new Wonder Woman movie trailer that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con last week is flawless... absolutely flawless!!!
