Me: See, the station is supposed to be ugly. It was built by the Cardassians and literally hung over Bajor during the occupation but that same oppression has left the Bajorans in a position where they can't just build a new station and are forced to work with what they've got. So the ugly legacy of colonialism is the literal backdrop of the show.
Barista: Okay, but did you want whip cream on that?
Me: Yes please.
I enjoy how the announcer keeps explaining over and over again that this is just a test and the asteroid does NOT actually pose a threat.
They were talking to the nasa chief planetary defense officer and he was like “don’t worry this asteroid was not aimed at earth and won’t be after this either” but what an incredible feat of supervillainy it would be if the second part of that was a lie
