    "They are opposed to people and ideas who are not being true to themselves."

    Wonderful article thanks Josh! I don't have too much to add other than what you have written above. What an important episode. When watching 'Lots of Danger, Lots of Decoys' and seeing the character of Kaia who had trans overtones, I was hoping that a tale like this would appear where transgender issues would really be covered.

    It will now be fascinating to watch the failure episodes in TNG, where they try to cover alternative sexualities and gender and don't quite make the bar – and to have the framed through this work which was well ahead of its time. Great stuff!

    Thank you. This was definitely an important episode for the show to do, and for me personally in my own coverage of it.

    TNG certainly no longer has much of an excuse. There are extenuating circumstances that I'll talk more about in time, but the fact remains this frankly never gets topped. Or matched.

    I'm actually starting to get more apprehensive about eventually starting TNG now: I'm sure my attitude will change, but I'm honestly anticipating great disappointment. I hope I'm wrong. And, at least I have three Dirty Pair movies and another TV series to look forward to.

    Yes I have to say that before watching this I feel I would have been willing to give TNG a bit more of leniency. I had not idea that this show existed the last time I watched TNG, but now it will be interesting to watch it again with a new perspective. Thanks for expanding my viewpoints again!
