Who runs the world?! We all know the answer to that question is "girls" by now, and DC Comics' new Superhero Girls does well to further illustrate that point.

“Do not hug me.”
     -- Lt. Commander Worf

In the old days, when I wanted to get a friend interested in DS9, I would write up a viewing guide. Most people, when faced with a series this long, will understandably give up in the doldrums of the first season. Generally speaking, I advised them to skip vast swaths of Season 1, decent chunks of Season 2, and worst episode ever “Meridian” from Season 3. After that, I would tell them, is smooth sailing.

Greetings, fellow Amazons. Welcome to the 42nd installment of Wonder Woman Wednesday!

“Tell me, do they still sing songs of the Great Tribble Hunt?”

DS9’s fandom is often characterized by our defensiveness. It’s because our favorite corner of the Trek universe generally gets ridiculed, with it taken as a given that TOS, TNG, and in some extreme cases even Voyager, are somehow superior. While the vast majority of DS9’s run was dismissed as “that show where they never go anywhere,” one hour was recognized, even as it aired, as great. This one.

As you may or may not know - considering the seeming lack of hype - it's Black History Month. This being Wonder Woman Wednesday, you don't have to dig deep for a fitting Wonder Woman tie-in to the theme of Black History. You read that right.


If you’ve never been to a burlesque show before, you might not know what to expect. The most common understanding is that it’s a bunch of women taking off their clothes. Well, the ladies of Zip Productions will be the first to tell you—and show you—that there’s much, much more to it than that. First and foremost, burlesque is an art form, and nowhere is that more apparent than in a show like O’ Say Can You Tease.

“Strange, these corporeal bodies of yours. So fragile. Burst even a tiny blood vessel in the brain and every memory, every passionate emotion, gone forever.”
-- The Pah-wraith

It’s been nearly twenty years and I still don’t know what I think of the pah-wraiths. DS9’s attempt to add demons into the mix has never quite sat comfortably with me. The hard SF fan in me wants things to make sense in a non-supernatural way. The thing is, a) what am I doing watching Star Trek then, and b) the pah-wraiths do make sense in a non-supernatural way. They have the feel of the paranormal to them, and despite that being an element of Trek from the very beginning, it always makes my skin crawl as I imagine myself defending it to a skeptic.
