    Problem is, for many it seems, myself included, she's like the best character or second best after Isaac. Maybe Mercer should die... but Seth is the boss.


No she's great. It's just such a bad premise in general where the first officer is the captain's ex-wife. They're backed into this bad premise when I wish it had never been baked into the show in the first place. Her character is the best...I just don't like the premise of a divorced couple being captain and first officer.

(I work with a married couple and it causes all kinds of nightmares...they conspire with each other)

    I so wanted it to end with Bortus not being able to urinate with everybody watching him or something... but nothing...


I was expecting the same thing really.

We got more Bortus in season 2 episode 2 last night where he unwittingly unleashed a virus on the ship from some Moclan gay holo p@rn (well they're all male so that's the regular stuff for them I guess) and his husband tried to murder him but it's ok because that's their culture.

I don't know what it is about Bortus but even with a plot like this that sounds outrageous his story still seems...subdued I guess? You can't say the stiff personality is just him being Moclan...his husband is at the opposite extreme where he shows too much emotion and throws hissy fits all the time.
