Happy Birthday, Daphne Ashbrook and thank you for being awesome. Thank you for selling Grace even when the writing wasn’t that great (the “he’s British!” line still gets me just cause the delivery is great). Thank you for staying so involved with DW. Happiest wishes to you.

[One of my favorite episodes of DS9 is 2x06 “Melora”. I relate to Ensign Melora Pazlar on so many levels. As someone with a chronic disease, seeing a handicap similar to mine portrayed in such a realist way made a big impact. They portrayed the anger and need to be independent so well, that I was sure it was me on screen. Seeing her thrive through her daily struggles of living in high gravity and be a Starfleet gave me hope that I could do anything I dreamed of, even with my illness.]
