100% canon nerdiness of Captain James T. Kirk
- was once described as "a stack of books with legs"
- quotes peter pan
- quotes John Masefield
- quotes Charles Dickens
- quotes Shakespeare
- quotes paradise lost
- Bones gave him 18th century glasses as a present and Spock gave him an antique edition of A Tale of Two Cities
in summation: kirk is a great big nerd and i love it
things that are not okay
- deforest kelley telling william shatner on his deathbed “let’s make just one more “Star Trek” movie i sure miss making those movies”
- deforest kelley never getting to meet his counter part bones, karl urban, in the reboot series
- a world without deforest kelley
- and that’s the list
- there is no more
You know what people never seem to mention about Uhura? That she’s kinda vain. Before I’m attacked for stating a character flaw I know that she has good qualities like being very smart when it comes to languages (and relearning everything after a robot wipes her memory Jesus Christ). McCoy has some flaws too like being way to harsh to Spock sometimes or Scotty having a hard time talking to woman.
….the best Star Trek fanfiction I’ve read is “the lotus eaters” on AO3….. great story and twist….Fuck I wish there was more to read….
Another complaint about the reboot movies is that they make chekov out as this cutesy boy but in reality he’s not far behind Spock in terms of being sassy
Anonymous asked: About your last post... But the Kirk in the Reboot was supposed to be a "different" Kirk. Reboot!Kirk didn't grow up with his father alive nor does it appear that his mother was really involved in his childhood. Also, reboot!Kirk was older when he attended the academy than TOS!Kirk. Thus, it stands to reason that there is an inherent difference between the pair (emotionally and mentally).
Yeah I’ve seen this argument dozens of times and i honestly believe its a true justification. I bitch about the reboot often but when it comes down to it, most of the characters had different pasts and experience is what our personalities are built from. Growing up without the same circumstances may have changed Kirk (to my great disappointment) but what about Spock? He seemed more emotional and as far as i can tell didn’t have his life altered. I guess what I’m trying to say is that if the characters are different…. Its not really them and it kinda hurts because then it doesn’t really feel like Star Trek.
One of the many inconsistencies of the new Star trek movie is that in TOS is mentioned Kirk was grim guy when he was in the academy; a real bookworm. Sorry i just have to bitch about everything wrong in the reboot xD
