Beings from a long dead world threaten the Enterprise and take over Scotty’s love. Will they all survive? Find out when we crush the delicate Lights of Zetar between the pages of the Mission Log.

  • Did you guys get too burned for talking about sexism? Because not only is Mira Romaine – a Starfleet Lieutenant – referred to as a “girl”, Scotty totally dismisses her fears and experiences, almost mansplaining what had happened to her. With a tiny bit of a stretch, you can make a parallel to a woman reporting sexual assault – with her boyfriend saying “Oh no, that’s not what happened at all”, and then Scotty is asked about how to treat the situation. Who really has claims to Mira’s body? In the end she stakes her own claim, but meanwhile several entities also try it.

    • These are great points, Stacy. I kind of wish we could go back and re-examine this episode with that in mind. Hmmm.. maybe after we’re done with our first round? Seriously though – the additional insight is valuable.
