sepdet: (Uhura)
Good heavens. I expect sexism in classic Trek, but rewatching TNG for the first time in nearly 20 years is a little startling.

I propose a new first-season TNG drinking game: take a shot every time one of the female cast members is in a scene referring to sex, their looks, optional clothing, or relationships.

Surprisingly, the episode introducing Lwaxana Troi passes the Bechdel Test, but you'd have passed out before you got to the qualifying conversation.

Ah well. It's Star Trek. With all its warts. I'm still a Trekkie, but ... sigh.

What's so sad is that Gene Roddenberry was trying to explode stereotypes. He really was!
