Re: Star Trek Into Darkness & The Bechdel Test
For what it's worth, no one seemed too upset with what happened to the Borg queen or the Duras sisters.
I think that there are reasons why, in one it was a robot that was broken at the end and in the other they weren't killed by a man physically assaulting them with his hands.
If Riker had beaten the Duras sisters to death with his hands, I think we'd be having a different discussion.
