Re: Galaxy's Child

Sure, she could be a little nicer, but given some of the nutcase scientists we've seen in Starfleet, couldn't we have had a bit more celebration of her genius rather than a pity party for LaForge and his fantasies of the girl of his dreams?
N'ah, her genius doesn't trump the fact that she's a bitch, any more than Kazinsky's, from an earlier season, trumps the fact that he's an asshole. If we're to see the characters as human rather than cardboard, we need to look past their accomplishments -- and their genders -- and instead to their qualities as people.
