Yes, yes payback is a bitch. I somehow just KNEW that someone would do something like this, with a human coming out of a xeno the way a xeno would. Follows rule 35 of the internet, when taken in context with rule 34 of the internet.
Amen (irony). Especially when you start in perfectly innocently with someone you trust is logically minded. As soon as you make that assumption, you can guarantee you're gonna fight. I like to switch subjects to "Who was a better captain, Kirk or Picard?" Equally dangerous shitstorm, but at least its humourous and you'll probably not lose the entire friendship or get in a fistfight.
(...my response is original series overall, Picard as captain. That usually confuses the issue enough to buy me time to flee.)
