So this week's episode is Gals Being Pals™ and addressing the one niggling criticism about not breaking up their fave duos. It was done to great effect between Tendi's backstory, confirmation that not all Orions can emmit pheromones and actually building friendship between two chicks. I dig it. I sure hope the crack about Mariner hanging w Boimler isn't foreshadowing because no Also yay for Pan!Mariner. Now let her actually oogle buff women and non binary humans. I'm surprised they brought Shax back. I think his death was pretty impactful and while the story itself was funny, I get why people are mixed on that. The Paris cameo was pretty fun. Poor Boimler can't catch a break Fun fact, this is also the 800th episode of Star Trek to air!
