DAY TWENTY | FAVORITE FEMALE ANTAGONIST
Nona, Star Trek TOS


"You would let him die when you have the weapons to make him powerful and safe? Then he has the wrong friends! And I have the wrong husband."


This category took me far too long to decide on a character in any medium I could think of, and Nona is seemingly a super random choice. And that is because she partially is, and then not. Before I ever got “into” Star Trek, before my box sets and replica phasers and communicators; I was just a little wee bit who caught random episodes after school. “A Private Little War” is not my favorite Star Trek episode, although I am very fond of it - Nona is just a character I’ll randomly think of while watching other shows. Something about her has obviously stuck with me from my youth; competent, gorgeous, strong willed, and with clear motivations I think she might be one of the earliest female characters I ever viewed as “badass”. She holds a strange place in my little fandom/viewer heart and I really wanted to just get to present her at some point - so here she is!
