In the forces what would you do with a rogue boss/commander? who ignores "command" yet at the same time comes out smelling of roses every single time?

Personally I'd like to see her thrown out of the service, How could you ever rely on such a person.
On the other hand, when they come good, and the outcome is great ever time they ignore you, are you better letting them get on with it?

I don't know what you should do?
Of course in the real world she'd be dead long long ago, as baddies in the real world don't cock around as they do on TV, they just shoot and kill you.

Thought that was *****. 2 civilisations built on logic won over by Burnham's cry face.

Tilly continues to look ill this season. Surprised someone's diet could be so poor in the perfect future.

I confess to having trouble with the Adira....well, no, thwt"s not true really, I actually like the character, it's the handling of the non binary element of the character that bothers me.

I stress, not the fact that the character is non binary. That's cool....yay representation.

What bothered me is

1. They've kinda paired them up with Stamets. One assumes because as a gay man, he may be seen as an ally. Yet the fact that Stamets is gay and in a committed relationship is never really commented on, they show don't tell with Stamets and that's cool - it"s nice to see a gay character who's defining quality isn't just the fact that they're gay.
2. The shoe horned the they/them pronouns into a conversation lasting 2-3 minutes and they must have used the pronouns 20+ times to show they're woke.

The character should absolutely be able to say their preferred pronouns and colleagues take note that should have been the end of it and just have been used whenever they would naturally have used he/she and him/her in future episodes rather than put in that rather clumsy conversation. What they did is pure virtue signalling.

I assume there is a new episode (but thought they were fridays?)

Up to now it’s been she /her so far.

It sort of makes sense for someone who had many genders inside then to be them/they as they are plural. Is that really the sane as being non binary in real earth?

I was going to comment that the them/they would be very appropriate for a trill, but it's not really played that way and it's specifically about gender

Oh well..........

Last week, we had "Her" finally get slapped down a bit for her final ignoring all rules and doing exactly as she likes.

Foolishly I was stupid enough to think: "Perhaps we may get some actual Star Trek back now, and other characters can get focused on with more story-lines"

Of course, what an idiot in thinking that was possible.
For this week, we had the Burham dial turned way back up to 11 and the whole dam episode totally all about her again.
And it seems like "She's back" so ain't going anywhere

Do non of the writers think for one second perhaps there is just a tiny chance a percentage of viewers are sick of this bitch ruining the show?

That’s pretty offensive language about someone.

Ok, fair point.
A tad harsh, however the word does sum up my frustration level with this character and the effect on what's supposed to be a well rounded all encompassing show of the future around the Star Trek theme its characters and universe of events to explore?

Just watched it. Can’t see the burn ham hate. She is fine. No more “ignoring orders” than says Kirk.

The they/them wasn’t the in your face thing I was expecting. Just a statement, not explained, and moved on. I would just take it it was due to them being composed of multiple people (okay they also said I didn’t feel she before but they are 16 and can just talk crap). So I am assigning it to the multiverse person thing.

Oh, it wasn't the statement I had an issue with, it was the conversation between Stamets and his husband at the end that grated

I assumed they’d had a conversation before, off camera, where it was discussed.

It does jar, and appear in Your face compared to lots of she her as it’s grammatically odd and so draws your attention.

Though I missed what was said at the end, maybe stuff about him being like a dad?
