It's Not Easy Being Green  
Remember how, way back in the early days of Star Trek: Voyager fandom, Megan and Jenny Delaney from Stellar Cartography were branded the sluts of the ship for daring to enjoy sex? Right, so I'm having flashbacks. Only this time, it's Gaila who's being called names in the blogsphere for, well... enjoying casual sex as much as James T Kirk does. And dood, GAILA IS AWESOME.

I'm too swamped to write at the moment, but I'm definitely up for hosting a good ole fashioned Commentfic Extravaganza. So if you want to write a little something (drabble, snippet, epic poetry, knock yourself out!) about Cadet Gaila, go ahead and post it here.

I'm a bit confused by that; why *do* we think the Farragut? 'Cause she looked like she was saying goodbye to Uhura, who she thought was *on* that ship. (Actually, her glee in that scene is what made me assume Enterprise; pride at being on the most 'important' ship.)

She could have always been on a third, entirely different and less damaged ship with working escape pods, of course. Or, as you say, the Farragut could have had them, to.

TBTH, I don't care so much as long as she DOES survive. XD

I think people are assuming she was on the Farragut because they're also assuming that each group of cadets were dispatched to the same ship? But on rewatch it becomes obvious that they weren't, and unless Gaila has a surname we don't know about, we don't hear her specific assignment read aloud. I'm firmly on the "she was so excited, she must be on the Enterprise" train myself.

(As far as escape pods, I wouldn't bet on them. The ship debris was all in orbit around Vulcan, remember? And Enterprise had to retreat lest she be sucked into the black hole when it collapsed? Yeah, I'm thinking there were no survivors to go back for, sadly.)
