Anika and Liz are joined by Jules (of @juleshastweets and Bad Pajamas) to talk about our favourite villains! Complete with sidebars about Star Wars and Avatar: The Last Airbender, and a a brief reinvention as an Expanse podcast.
Topics of discussion include:
- villains versus antagonists
- redemption arcs
- the mirror universe
- is Emperor Georgiou the Garak of Discovery?
- maybe Quark isn’t a villain, but he should definitely be in jail
- speaking of incarceration — Garak gets six months for attempted genocide, while Kasidy Yates gets the same sentence for smuggling medical supplies to the Maquis? Really?
- concept: the Prophets are not good people
- the magnificence of General Chang
Finally, going technically off-topic but when did we ever let that stop us, Julia talks about Picard‘s golem and Jewish myth.
