Star Trek’s Tragic Hybrids, Part 2

Larissa and Lauren continue their conversation on the troubling portrayal of Star Trek’s mixed race characters from last episode with inaugural guest; cellist and sci-fi nerd Joshua Dent. Why did DS9s writers give Tora Ziyal so much dang work to do? Does Spock’s Vulcan heritage make him a more well rounded character? How did Larissa forget about Molly O’Brien!!?

The trio acknowledges Star Trek’s commitment to continuous effort and offers some suggestions for systemic improvement. Tune in!
