A true warrior takes it on the chin and learns from their mistakes.

It was actually a little frightening whenever Data loaded Captain.exe. He was very intimidating in a command role.

IIRC there was a TOS episode where a subordinate was similarly disrespectful towards Spock when it was discovered that Vulcans and Romulans are related. Would have been interesting to see Spock and Data discuss what it was like working with bigoted humans.

This might be the most "manly" thing Worf ever did.

People still using sexist meme templates -_-

Genuinely curious, what makes this template sexist to you?

[–] [email protected] 6 points 1 week ago

It has women in it.

I took no offense but I can see the potential trigger.

They are likely talking about how Data and Worf’s exchange is not respected by men only and while this meme does not explicitly say this one could infer therefore that women can’t or don’t respect said exchange for no other reason other then w o m e n

given this, it stands to reason that there are better formats to tell this joke without wading into an inferable grey area.

I agree that this template does trend in that direction, (commonly girls illogical or other negative light vs cool boys being dudes) but look at the meme without that context and you’ll see there’s nothing negative towards the female side aside from the fact that worf and data’s exchange is not only respected by men (which is a bit of an ick tho I’ll give you that, I’m no fan of this template either)
