B’Elanna Torres

Man I really struggled with this, yeah it’s all a bit of fun and stuff but I really hate it when characters like Seven and T’Pol (or any of the women of Star Trek but these two really cop it) are reduced to objectifying comments.  It’s all a but reductionist and dismissive of the performances and complexity of the roles, of course it’s a created problem through the powers that be’s obsession with cat suits.

T’Pol and Seven are both extraordinary characters that are easily datable but I’m going to go with B’Elanna Torres.  I already married a fierce, strong, intelligent warrior woman well out of my league so she seems the natural choice.  Of course I don’t think Tracey should worry just yet.

This is part of the 30 Day Star Trek Challenge – check out the details here.

Merry Christmas to anyone actually reading this on publish day (I scheduled this – as this goes live I’m hopefully already in a food coma).
