Star Trek Lower Decks thoughts 

I like how the Caitian Doctor looks real mangy. That’s probably the best bit of worldbuilding on the show. Is it commentary that even in Starfleet’s optimistic future, medical career training is harrowing and too full of weeks without enough sleep?

Or perhaps it’s admission for why we haven’t seen Caitians on screen in a while. Perhaps the species has been on the ropes in its regional conflicts with the no-longer-allowed-to-be-called-Kzinti?

Or maybe she’s just an stray space alley cat who doesn’t care what other people think?

I don’t expect the series to actually answer or expand upon this, but I like that they evoke it in me to wonder.
