Genre Conventions
So, after a lot of the Star Trek runs, we meta-analyze how actually Star-Trekky they were. Fun, yes. Interesting, yes. Fulfilling all the canon genre conventions, not always. Tonight's run, I totally pegged the genre convention by suspecting an invisible radition-emitting monster, but kind of broke mjperson's carefully laid plans by not struggling out of the arranged marriage. Whoops. :)

It happens all the time...

I can think of several episodes where people show up and suddenly one of the bridge crew is told to get married to someone they've never met. The response is always the same... "Noooooooo!"

Instead, firstfrost says, "Um.. sure, that seems fine."

Re: It happens all the time...

All my actual Star Trek mindset comes from TOS, not TNG. Spock went along with his arranged marriage... :)
