So… huh… Chiq is, like… a dude??? Yep. And that hasn’t been something I thought of yesterday, it has pretty much been the intent with this character ever since creating him. Don’t expect too many more details at this stage, but I will say that Chiq’s species were seen waaaay back in the History feature – here.
There’s no chance of Lyta suffering from an inferiority complex – in writing for her I just think like a Klingon! This isn’t the first time Charisma has been overly familiar with Lyta in calling her “darling” (see 2.07) but you shouldn’t read too much into it other than posturing. So Billy thinks it’s a trap… will he be right?
