Bechdel Test

Waitaminnit. What about Dr. Fraser and Capt. Carter in Stargate SG-1? Or the extensive interactions between Keiko O'Brien, Jadzia Dax, and Kira Neris in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine? Hell, DS9 was the first show on TV to realistically depict a lesbian relationship, ever! And I can name at least two episodes of Next Generation that directly or metaphorically confronted homophobia!

I will admit that I am working my way through Stargate SG-1. While I am not an authority on it, I haven't reached any part that does pass yet. So I sit corrected.

And I was one of the ones that felt DS9 wasn't really Star Trek, so, again, I was wrong there.

Crit fail as a geek, must go redeem myself with a marathon of nerdery.
