OH LOOK AT THAT THE 1960S
AND SHE’S IN COMMAND GOLD FUCKERS.
She’s not in Medical blue, a caretaking, feminine role.
Those in Gold were either OFFICERS, NAVIGATORS, PILOTS, TACTICAL OFFICERS, or WEAPONS SPECIALISTS.
This is the Kirk everyone likes to forget.
And as of TNG, gold is also common for the senior engineers.
Any way you slice it, girlfriend has got MAJOR shit to take care of.
Plus? The senior in Medical. A man. A man in a sensitive, caretaking role.
That’s the future Gene Roddenberry wanted for humanity. Dude was a fucking visionary, and nobody seems to realize it.
