[I feel like Keiko just nagged, and nagged, and nagged at Miles. I mean I’m a wife, but I don’t sit there and whine at my husband every time he tries to make friends with the station’s medical officer!]
I’d like to point out here that the B-plot for one episode ended with Keiko setting Miles and Julian up on a date and taking care to do it in a way that they wouldn’t feel guilty about it.*There are also a bunch of mentions of Julian going over to their quarters for dinner or her sending Julian some lunch. She didn’t just nag at him about Julian.
* Can’t remember the title or season, just that it was after she came back from her long-term botany study.
I agree with the comment and disagree with the confession. Keiko wasn’t nagging. Almost no marriage goes without problems, and living on a space station certainly isn’t an ideal environment. People need to give Keiko more credit for the circumstances she was living in. Raising little children on a space station is far from ideal, and she couldn’t even do her job there. And she still supported her husband, even if there were some little fights.
And she certainly had no problem with the friendship of Miles and Julian, the scene inkycompass described being a good example.
Keiko’s and Miles’ relationship actually is one of my favourites, because it’s just so realistic, down-to-earth and yet still hella cute. =3
also let’s not forget that she called out Miles on his racist bullshit in ‘Cardassians”
