Trek TV Episode 212 - Star Trek: The Next Generation S05E17 - "The Outcast"
#212 A terrified, misunderstood, and persecuted person finally decides to accept and take a state for who and what she is, and is subsequently seized by the state for her perceived deviance and faces an involuntary, disturbing, and invasive mental "treatment" to "correct" her "condition". Fortunately, the Enterprise is there to help! Unfortunately, nobody seems to really care, except for Riker on account of he wants to figure out where his bits could go. It's kind of weird and messed up! Some dated concepts of gender and bizarre lack of concern from our typically ultra-humanitarian starship crew aside, this episode still manages to be a stirring, devastating argument for the acceptance of people's sexual and gender orientations that remains terribly, distressingly relevant nearly 30 years later. So of course, we find plenty of ways to accidentally botch pronouns repeatedly, continually giggle like schoolchildren when someone talks about "getting inside the pocket", reveal the secrets of the enigmatic "Story of the Bases", take a stand against the disgusting perversion of split pea soup, and so, so much more in this exceedingly long and unfortunately timely episode of Trek TV! Also, TERFs and their ilk can get proper fucked, tia. Visit our website for fan art, news and more!
