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.

Oh my, I want more of this!
I haven't seen the movie yet. In fact, I wasn't even going to click on this,because I don't like spoilers. Fortunately, I was too curious about her character to resist. The story is splendid. I liked the character and the idea that she was strong enough to endure and bright enough to figure out how to improve her lot in that world.

What really got me, is that knowing the previous versions of the Orion lore didn't break my suspension of disbelief. I found myself contemplating different races on Orion, or a mutation/genetic defect. A world in which women born without the right pheromones are on a par with the men, possibly below them.
