A l i e n a t e d  Wo m a n  :
Commander Counselor Deanna Troi, Daughter of The Fifth House, Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Riix, Heir to the Holy Rings of Beta-Humanity


"Beta-human is a word I use to describe Troi's mixed heritage, Betazoid and Human.  it also stands for how her Betazoid alien race is portrayed as 'feminine', while Human assumes 'masculine' attributes.  In the Star Trek universe, Human also assumes an Aryan-centric identity.  Troi, depicted as exotic through her Betazoid heritage, portrays women and non-Aryans as alien.

To think on...

-How do you know a character is an alien? Dress, speech, tradtions, philosophies, body?
-What is portrayed as normal for Human?
-How do these attributes relate to you?
