[When I was in fifth grade, my teacher told me that boys were just inherently better at math than girls and that I shouldn’t even try studying science or math. That same year Star Trek: Voyager premiered. Seeing Janeway, B'Elanna, Kes, and Seven all working in science and engineering helped inspire me to keep pursuing my dream of being a scientist. Today I’m an astrophysicist.]
I’ve been watching Star Trek: Voyager for the first time. Tried to imagine what Seven of Nine might look like if she was allowed to choose what she wanted to look like and retain some of her Borg identity, rather than being strapped into a catsuit and four inch heels to improve ratings.
