only four eps left!
part two of the mirror universe, then another two parter about racism or something that looks terrible and then the glorious final ep that reveals none of this ever happened! :hamsterdance:

so in the last ep, archer was doing his scowly face. and he still is

you know how in trials and tribblelations sisko goes up to kirk to get him to sign something and it was just an awesome moment?

seeing archer dressed like this is the opposite of that moment

seeing sisko get to meet kirk made me feel all warm and fuzzy

seeing archer dress like kirk makes me want to throw things at him

so.

according to this ep, prime universe archer went down in history as the greatest explorer of the 22nd century and had two planets named after him?

well gosh, i hope history also recorded the time he and phlox created a baby in the lab so they could raise and murder it and harvest its brain

also fuck this show :grr:

@Taweret I mean, to be fair, it actually isn't surprising the Federation would view Archer favorably?? empires love to whitewash historical figures so they can idolize them and help reinforce their people's sense of a national identity through that supposedly shared, glorious, not-at-all-fucked-up history (like how the US has idolized like every wealthy white man from the 18th century we possibly could as all being heroes/"explorers"/etc)... 😬

(plus I mean, the Earth gov't from back then may also have been inclined to cover up Archer's crimes, since they just let him out there to represent all of us with no accountability or rules or anything so it makes them look super bad lol)

@NormalPopsicle good points actually

@NormalPopsicle @Taweret I kind of want to suggest that TOS through Voyager are the Federation's version of history and Enterprise is a 29th-Century Time Cop's primer on what to actually expect when you go to Archer's era, but that's getting dangerously close to agreeing with MatPat on an awful take.

@NormalPopsicle @Taweret I have to admit that I kept my subscription to the ____ Theory channels through the controversial "Dory is faking her mental illness for attention" dualogy, but what got me to cut ties with MatPat's stuff is his "The Federation is actually the bad guys lolz" video that hinges on things like not understanding that Mussolini doesn't have a monopoly on the bundle of sticks metaphor and ignoring 90% of DS9.

@tparadox @NormalPopsicle ds9s take on the federation is likely a bit too nuanced for matpat

Ds9's view of the federation is summed up pretty well by the root beer dialogue and eddington's speech to sisko. The federation are a superpower with imperialist tendancies. They kinda suck but they're still better than pretty much all the available alternatives
