I was 8 when The Wrath of Khan came out. I don't know how I wound up seeing the film at the movie theatre, but somehow I did. The bit with the bugs* in the ears? Terrified me. This episode brings all of that back, with extra ick factor because the skelter beetles (which do not really exist) look a hell of a lot like cockroaches, which are right up there at the top of my disgusting bugs that make me freak out list.

* Okay, the internets helpfully informs me that they were ceti eel larvae, not bugs. I don't care. 8-year-old me parsed them as bugs and bugs they shall remain.

The bits with Fauxlivia realising what's actually going on, and what that means for her relationship... yeah, I find it easier to like Fauxlivia when she's back in her own universe, not sleeping with Peter. And Walternate's grandfatherly excitement is creepy.

Fauxlivia uses her vagina a lot to get out of uncomfortable coversations or silences.

Bug girl crushing on altCharlie amuses me to no end. I kind of wish they'd kept the character around for a few eps.

Walternate doesn't want to test on youngsters but shows his hand on taking blood samples later.

Also, Fauxlivia walking into fringe division and acting like she has no idea about BBroyles just pisses me off to no end. You cannot convince me she didn't know.
