    OK, I'll go first. The episode was called "Forget me not".

    Discussion started :)

    Or I can complain the guide data shows it ending at :00 sharp when it needs to be padded 15 minutes in order to not cut off the ending...

    Maybe they'll get that fixed by the time the actual 32nd century rolls around.

    But your complaint may be confusing everyone south of the border, where streaming is the only option.

    I wonder what it means that nobody started a Ep4 thread until Ep5 was already out. ;)

    I mean, I could go start an Ep 5 thread, but that's just so much work...

    I disagree. I think it was a terrific episode. Blu Del Barrio and Ian Alexander were terrific as Adira and Gray.

    So I guess Gray will now be a recurring character (only seen by Adira)?

    Or they might totally ignore him from now on, as they often do with stuff.

    The episode was too subtle for me. The sexuality thing. I don't know the actress at all and maybe it was just her overall style.

    It seemed to be pretty much hitting me over the head that the character was androgynous; great, I'm up to speed on that. Then, OK I was stupid, she's clearly female, but. Then a traditional girl-boy relationship? Her boyfriend was just a male kid, right? Sometimes when I watch mainstream modern TV, I get the feeling I'm brown shoes and everyone else is wearing tuxedos (apologies for misquoting George Gobel). Something is happening here but I don't know what it is.

    Yup. Just what we need an imaginary boy friend to distract from the plot of the new season.

    Just because the actor identifies as non-binary, doesn't mean the character is.

    Adira has to be non binary. She is the amalgamation of both men and women in her symbiotic past. Some of this was addressed way back in DS9. Not new although the treatment may be.

    I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty sure that Jadzia Dax always referred to herself as a she or her. I'm sure Worf always did as well. Obviously Curzon Dax was her previous host, but I'm sure Jadzia pretty much thought of herself as female. Unless I missed the part she said otherwise.

    Also, true. The new symbiont/host is a new person and can identify as male or female.

    Of course, that was written in an age when "non-binary" wasn't a thing...at least not for the vast majority of us.
