Throughout the week of Valentine’s Day, a few members of the Fanbase Press crew will be sharing their personal love letters to the areas of geekdom they adore the most.

Dearest Diana,

To my beloved Wonder Woman. Though I feel it would seem more than apparent how much I openly and genuinely love you from the depths of my heart, I don't wish to take that for "granite" (Poor choice of words, given your god-given beginning.), but you'll pardon the pun I'm sure.

Dear Deadpool Creative Team,

From the minute “someone” leaked the test footage, you had me enthralled. Could we really be getting the Deadpool we deserved? Could we handle all the chimichanga goodness? How refreshing is the smell of fine Corinthian leather in the middle of a fight? Those few minutes of footage were all we needed to demand that the studio let us see your entire brilliance, and we demanded it with all the Internet’s speed, anonymity, and vitriol we could muster. As fanboys and fangirls, it was a considerable wave of demand that was thankfully heard by the suits, so y’all could make us very, very happy. You knew what would happen, you sly dogs. You hollered, “Come out and play!” and we were more than happy to oblige.

“It’s a strange sensation, dying. No matter how many times it happens, you never get used to it.”
    -- Ensign Ezri Dax

Characters in ensemble dramas need episodes focused around them to establish who they are, what they want, and where they came from. There’s a tradition in shows like DS9 to have one member of the ensemble act as the protagonist of the hour, with the rest of the cast taking the role of foils or even antagonists. After introducing Ezri Dax, they couldn’t just sneak her onto the show and pretend she’d been there the whole time. No, she was going to need that spotlight.

“It’ll be just like old times. Except different.”
-- Ensign Ezri Dax

Terry Farrell leaving DS9 put the writers in a no-win situation. The first option, the one I preferred at the time, is problematic from the standpoint that the show was already a bit of a sausage-fest, and they’d just been forced to kill one of only two female regulars. Elevating one of DS9’s numerous reoccurring characters to regular status, say, someone like Garak or Nog, who are not only great characters on their own, but are in most of the final season anyway, would have certainly been elegant and organic. It would have also left a cast of nine with only a single woman.

Hello, fellow Amazons! After doing this column for a while, I've met a lot of people who are as passionate about Wonder Woman as I am. Sometimes, their fandom is in the form of a collection. Sometimes, it's a passion for watching the '70s TV series, or drawing Wonder Woman. Sometimes, it's dressing up like her - for a good cause - or for no reason at all. But it's always a deep-rooted passion for everyone's favorite Amazon that brings the people together.

“In times of trouble, some people find comfort in hate and fear.”
    -- Constable Odo

With a quote like that, you’d think Odo was commenting on current events. That’s really what defines good science fiction: the ability to stay relevant many years after it’s released into the wild. Deep Space Nine is prescient to almost an absurd degree, but it’s no great magic trick how the writers managed this. People are people (as the philosophers of Depeche Mode once informed us), and as long as the stories spring from that essential idea, they’ll retain a position of truth. Odo’s not talking about current events; he’s talking about the persistent threads of history that have consistently led to the rise of organizations that feed on negative emotions.
