The last 24h or so have held up a mirror to the Star Trek fandom and it has shown the ugly, racist and Anti Black face it has when confronted with its members bigotry in even the mildest way. /2
A Black woman dared to point out how podcasters with a platform in the fandom prioritized white voices and ignored the voices of especially Black women, but in general all Black and brown people. /3

Quark saying,"when governments fall, people like me are lined up and shot" hits differently now. #StarTrekDay #StarTrekDS9
Quark was worried about the demonization of businesses like his bar and casino amid the rise of a potentially fundamentalist government. I'm concerned about being thrown in the back of a van by fascists who exploit fundamentalism to meet authoritarian ends. #StarTrekDS9
I really appreciated @ShimermanArmin's commentary during today's panel. He talked about how he said back then that #StarTrekDS9 would eventually be understood & appreciated. It was so ahead of its time. It gave me stories as a young person that I wouldn't encounter anywhere else.

I am a little irked about @DS9Doc. I rarely donate to projects, but I am a huge #StarTrekDS9 fan, and so I donated. I forgot there were perks involved, until I received an email telling me that a shipping label had been printed in my name to receive a DVD. 1/x
