Trivia

Though they never ran a script writing contest, the production teams of both Star Trek Deep Space Nine and Star Trek Voyager allowed amateur writers in the general public to submit episode scripts for consideration, some of which were used in both series while they were on the air. See more »

Goofs

A story about an aspie girl and her special interest.
8 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

Being autistic myself I had a high expectation for this film. And they totally nailed it! Its an awesome performance, the idea is brilliant and I like they did not exaggerate her aspie traits. If I would have to complain of one thing, it would be about the scene about the session with the carer about forcing her to look into her eyes for some seconds, because its a type of therapy that is not so accepted by the autistic community and it seeemed a bit sad. I would also would have liked to see her stim a bit more (like humming, rocking, pressing a squishy toy, etc for self regulation) but that is ok, many people on the spectrum do not stim that is so noticeable. For all those who have never known any autistics or ever had communication issues, sensory processing issues and overload it will be a difficult story to contextualize, but it really is a big adventure! And in the end I personally loved it, it was fun and sweet and endearing.
