        Also, when they had Campbell back to play Koloth in DS9 and Voyager, they should totally have gotten him to film a scene out of makeup as an elder member of the Q Continuum, too.)

    Here is a recurrent theme in Gothos/Adonis/Cat’s Paw: The aliens underestimate the crew because they expect the crew to be as we were in the past. By doing this, the aliens demonstrate how we used to be. Trelaine assumes we glorify war and marginalize women and cultures. Apollo assumes that we worship power. The Catspaw aliens assume the crew is superstitious. The crew says: “We put that behind us.” So, is the message: We’re doing better than in the past. We will do better in the future. We must do better to go forward and cope with the future.
