I think it is possible to find a balance. Not every heroine needs to be equivalent in every way. For example:

Princess Leia is a fantastic movie heroine. She is a freedom fighter but her skills set...

Kirk was right to offer assistance and, in fact, he did not need Nero's permission to provide assistance and what he was effectively trying to do was to take Nero into custody. This is absolutely...
