The writers have created a trans-masc character who:
1. is immediately and graphically killed
2. has no trans body*
3. is invisible to everyone except his partner. (v.r. nyy gur pvf punenpgref)

We had quit after Dr. Culbert's death, and only just started watching again because of the new cast.

(*Others may disagree about the importance of a body to trans-ness. For my partner, Gray's lack of a body stung.)

Yeah. That's exactly why my partner and I stopped watching after this episode.

Oh right, Bryan Singer's pitch. That's clever, to use those as predictions!

You're saying all this time he's been subletting from Voq?

I typed a while long post, and then lost it. Fuck.

Short version:
The looming shadow of this episode has had my stomach in knots every time I open MW Disco. Star Trek should be better than this.

Re: Georgiou's body
When this aired, I remember someone pointing out that it meant that Georgiou was definitely, irrevocably dead. It doesn't get more final than "eaten."

Peridot felt a personal connection to Yellow Diamond... a gem who could care less if Peridot existed or not...

Hmm, it's sort of a parasocial relationship. I wouldn't have thought to frame it that way until just now!
I suppose you could say the same about Stargate SG-1, and other "false god" stories.

YES!
I thought it was really resourceful of Peridot to use the tape recorder to apologize! I don't know how many times she would have rehearsed it, but she could've kept at it until it felt right.

Once, when I needed to apologize, I looked up one of those lists of the parts of an apology. As long as my partner believed that I was also being genuine, having that structure helped.
