DYKA: Gunbuster 01

Sternbach apparently liked the idea of sentient whales and porpoises used aboard the Exelion in episode six of Gunbuster. While never officially written into an episode due to budgetary constraints, they are hinted at in the episode “Yesterday’s Enterprise” when an intercom call was heard asking Dr. Joshua Kim to report to Cetacean Ops. It should also be known that Sternbach also references the Exelion in the TNG Technical Manual in the compound “excelion-infused carbonitrium”

So I don't know if random questions like this are ok, but-- the TNG episode The Loss. It's an ok episode but something always bugged me about the way they handled the message about disability. Like the fact that Troi spends the whole ep trying to come to terms with her disability, only for the plot's magic reset button to make everything all better. Like they said 'whoops, no time to explore life-changing disability in any meaningful way, let's move on!' What are your thoughts on this?

I agree with you. Showing that disabilities are often permanent was completely glossed over. You should watch the episode titled Melora from Deep a Space Nine. It’s a better story about a young woman struggling with the disability she only has in a gravity environment.
