he said the majority of Nimoy's fan mail was like that. Not Star Trek fan mail as a whole
Though there was something still between them, Bev admitted she still loved Odan. The problem is it seems pretty clear Odan still wanted a romantic relationship, which Bev could no longer give her. Not to mention Odan would be staying on the moons for an indefinite period of time. Bev is not going to give up her career because she "enjoyed someones company"
I never said you can't be critical, even I think the explanation she gave was bad
I will disagree with you that this situation was a bait and switch. The point of this episode was to examine the two sources of attraction (physical and intellectual) and represent them as a joint being where over the course of the episode the intellectual part stays constant but the physical part becomes less attractive. First with Riker who Bev describes in familial terms and then with the woman who Bev isn't attracted to at all
If Bev were bi the scene wouldn't work. her coming to grips with the fact that she needs both physical and intellectual attraction was the whole point of the episode
your gonna need to elaborate on that
"It doesn't get anymore simple than Odan had no gender before and has no gender now. "
Odan is not one being, it's two. Beverly wasn't sleeping with the slug
"has the sort of body we associate with being a woman "
no association required, that WAS a woman.
"So yeah. It IS homophobic and cissexist."
being strait does not make someone homophobic or Cissexist.
regardless of the reason your still expecting Beverly to ignore that she is strait.
Beverly CLEARLY stated she still loved Odan in the female body. But she wasn't physically attracted to her anymore.
your strait shaming Beverly Crusher and it sucks
I agree, She should have said "I" instead of "humans"
I think part of that was her being flustered and trying (and failing) to be inoffensive
