Lol - just because sci fi writers can't be trusted doesn't mean I should shrug and accept it. When did any of society's ills get solved by doing that? Carol's appearance in ongoing comic already feels good. Having an extra woman should work although as a physicist, I do wonder how much she can contribute when that is already Spock's territory. So far so good though. Projecting of course! Although I find NuKirk's shenanigans to be as hollow, desperate, and emotionally unsatisfying as NuStarbuck's but this franchise isn't as bleak so they are skating over his emotional state and making it cooool. I'm amazed that NuBSG didn't go there at some point but maybe they wanted to make a point about the way soldiers brutalise women in the real world. Most men are just killed horribly.
