It’s a fictional organization that has had the most non-fictional influences in all of our mythos. Starfleet represents the best of what we can be as human beings. It has been that way for nearly 54 years!
The experience I wanted was that of someone who wanted to see this episode without looking for the tropes of identity politics or bad storytelling.
Centered around a Mary Sue character, the entire premise is numb, impotent, and at its very core, tragically divisive.
In a show that is literally about abnormal/alternative lifestyles, these things should not come as a surprise to anyone who decides to pick up YouMeHer.
