Yup.  But she got tired of Klinger borrowing her clothes and divorced him.

And she went from being Korean, to being Japanese, while actually being Chinese-American.

Alright, so I saw a couple more episodes of DS9 and remembered why I was reluctant in the first place.  Soap Opera indeed!  Still, here’s some positive aspects that stand out.  One particular episode called Rejoined focuses on the relationship between Dax and another woman who, as it turns out, used to be her ex-wife.  Or, at least, the ex-wife of one of her former hosts.  They struggle with their feelings for each other as they deal with the taboo of rejoining with former loved ones.  I think the way they dealt with the topic of homosexuality, in their roundabout way, is truly remarkable. 

It reminded me of an episode of TNG called Outcast where they tackle the issue when they encounter a genderless race and one of the members becomes attracted to Riker.  She confesses she identifies as female and must figure out how to navigate the conflict of going against societal norms.  The repercussions of which subject her to conversion therapy or being deemed an outcast.  The surrounding characters demonstrate many of the attitudes found in every society.  The subtlety is very clever and creative. 

I’ll likely tune in again.  So as not to squander the opportunity for some cheap Trills.

Both these episodes stand out for me as well.
In the TNG ‘Outcast’ episode, a line that I still remember and was moved by is:  “What makes you think you can dictate how people love each other?

Yes, which is why unkind and immoral religious doctrines must be rejected.
(It is my understanding that Gene Roddenberry was a humanist/atheist.)

On a Trek-related note, a new workout franchise is appealling to geeks, nerds and trekkies to get out of the basement more. It’s open 24/7 and all the exercise gear is dressed up like props from Star Trek. The friendly staff wears starfleet uniforms and Trek plays on all the video screens. Live long and perspire at the He’s Dead Gym.

Is it a holodeck?

I’m a sucker for a good sci-fi space opera.

If you like good sci fi, check out The Expanse on SyFy/Space channels.

I’m wrestling with some of the casting for the show, and how they’re writing one of the characters in particular—cast well, written ... questionably to say the least (they couldn’t have done better casting Avasarala, Alex or Amos OTOH).

I still agree it’s a really good sci-fi show though. It’s very cool in terms of depicting spacefaring and low-G life realistically.
