Trek nerdliness: Ro Laran vs Kira Neryss
Is wracked by shame and guilt over the bad things they did to her
Justifies herself by the crimes she committed
Loves her dead daddy
When she plays the whore, she gets screwed
Will double-cross even Captain Picard
Pretty, except for the mole
A lovely, fragile, delicate flower
Is wracked by shame and guilt over the bad things she did to them
Justifies herself by the crimes she survived
Loves the next Kai
When she plays the whore, he gets screwed
Will protect even Doctor Bashir
Plain, except for the red hair
A bod that just won't quit

I miss the Shadows because...

... they're competitors
... the Shadow War gave my life meaning and direction
... a thousand years from now, who will destroy civilization?
... fighting them made us stronger
... Psi-Corp is my friend
... invisibility looks good on them
... who knows what they really want?
... they're easy to fool
... when they blow up a planet, it's really scary!
... they remind me of my ex
... they'll give you what you want
... I'm a sadist
I miss the Vorlons because...
... being a Lord of Order means never having to say you're sorry
... they found a use for Jack the Ripper
... they don't need lightbulbs
... they fly around in giant singing garlic cloves
... fortune cookies sound dull and obvious by comparison
... the suit makes the Vorlon
... they're an evolutionary dead-end
... they are ALL Kosh
... who will sponsor Valen when he comes back?
... they do a great angel impression
... now who will nag me to clean my room?
... everyone wants to see them naked
... who knows who they really are?
