Re: TheGodBen Revisits Deep Space Nine

There are 2 different types of creepy. One is when somebody makes you stop and go "errr…. I don't know about this person". This is usually when someone does something socially awkward -- like try to escort someone home even after they've declined. The other kind of creepy makes your skin crawl, because the act itself makes the person seem repulsive.

Let me give you an example. After a date once, a guy asked me if I was going to "run away from him". Creepy thing to say, but creepy in the 1st degree, not second. When you're hit on by a married guy, that's the 2nd type of creepy.

At first glance, Chrysalis seems in character for Julian. But Julian is the first type of creepy not the second.

Season 1 Julian was face palm embarrassing and socially awkward but no worse than many young, nerdy guys I've met. With Melora, it was inappropriate but excusable, because Julian was young, naive, and socially awkward. Also, Melora was a fully mature adult.

With Sarina, it feels more predatory. Julian should know better, especially since he's grown up quite a bit since Melora. A doctor abusing his authority without considering the welfare of his patient who couldn't possibly be emotionally equipped to handle his advances is on a different level than a naive act by someone who is socially awkward.

I think Chrysalis is out of character for Julian. I don't even think early season Julian would do what he did here. But if he did, he would at least learn a lesson about not violating medical ethics. But we know he doesn't, because later he skirts the boundary to get Ezri to talk to him. And the fact he didn't learn the lesson after Chrysalis makes that relatively innocent act seem creepily predatory as well.

Side note: I don't think the writers actually realized that they made Julian creepy.

Merry Christmas!

Influenced by a certain review in your Enterprise thread, I did this:

All those times I trolled Youtube searching for bizarre versions of What is Love, and I didn't find this masterpiece? It makes me feel bad that this is the last romance of the week episode.

Wow! I think there's real potential in the premise of Star Trek: Destroyager, someone should do a fanfic.

Review TOS or TNG next if you want to see more romance of the week.

It would have all the best parts of MU Trek: Captain's Wenches, and Lesbians!

...Oh wait, the captain is Janeway.

I was considering doing TNG next, but with an offer like that, I think I'll pass.

Is μChakotay μJaneway's wench? Because I can imagine him wearing nothing but leather straps and with a ball-gag in his mouth, and I get the feeling that a lot of Voyager fans have already fantasised about that scenario.

My theory is Janeway had him castrated after Caretaker. He was looking like he was going to be a dominant and interesting character on that episode alone. Boy did they trick us there.

Oh, don't worry, there's one or two of them that are actually somewhat good. If you do review it, you should count romances of the week. Along with Troi stating the bleeding obvious, Riker coming off as a sexual predator, Picard's speeches, and Worf getting beaten with ease by the alien of the week.

He's fine. TheGodBen is Irish, and so celebrated Christmas and the New Year in a suitably drunk fashion.

Should be awake for Easter.

Next year.

Hey now, we Irish break our drunken hibernation for St Patrick's Day. It's a holy day, after all.

Actually, the reason why I haven't gotten back to DS9 yet is because I'm watching Archer, which is awesome. There are so many references that I now get that I didn't before. I finally understand why other posters here refer to Captain Archer as Duchess, I thought it was because he was fussy and couldn't fight for shit.

Anyway, I'm almost finished Archer (and just in time for the new season to start) so I should be back to DS9 this week or next.

So you're watching ENT right?

I think Jonathon Archer just wishes he was half a man to start of with.
