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.

Remind me to never paint again. This is a bulbweed from the fanfiction, &#8220;the lotus eaters&#8221; or what i like to call asshole plants. I&#8217;m forcing myself to post this even though i hate it.

….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

this-is-not-jewish:

For those who aren’t Trekkies, these screengrabs come from the Star Trek: TOS episode “Patterns of Force,” in which the Enterprise encounters a Nazi planet (not simply modeled on the Nazis, but actually Nazi—swastikas, Fuhrer and all).

This line makes me chuckle, but at the same time I’ve always wondered just how much trouble William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy (both Jewish) had getting into those uniforms. They were both 14 when the Holocaust ended—old enough to really “get” both the horror of the Holocaust itself and the devastating, direct aftereffects it had on the American Jewish community. My mother once told me she was shocked that Hebrew Schools spend so much time on the Holocaust these days, because in her childhood (she became a bat mitzvah the year after this episode aired) the Holocaust was NEVER spoken about—you would regularly see people with tattooed arms or spend time with other kids with practically no extended family, but you just didn’t ask. It was too raw, too recent, too big.

And then, right in the middle of all that silence, Star Trek did an episode about Nazis.

How did Shatner, a blonde Jew, feel about being the subject of the line “You should make a very convincing Nazi” (played for laughs)? How did Nimoy feel about the scene where a Nazi “expert” examines him and rattles off a list of physical descriptions of him as proof that his character is an inferior race (also played for laughs)? How did they feel about having to put on those uniforms? How did they feel about the episode ending with the typical “everyone is chuckling on the bridge, now go to warp” conclusion? How did they feel about Star Trek even trying to tackle the Holocaust, so soon after it ended?

I have never seen an interview with either actor where anyone asked them about this episode. I have never read an article about the Jewish influence on the series (and there are many, many such articles—not only were Shatner and Nimoy Jewish, so were many of the writers) that discusses this episode. And that bothers me. Yes, I found the episode hugely problematic, and it is not one of Star Trek’s finest plotlines by any stretch—but for all its flaws, this episode has stuck with me more than most, precisely because I have so many questions. So when Trekkies/Trekkers dismiss this episode mockingly as just “that Nazi Planet episode,” it bothers me. Because there is so, so much more going on than that.

I don’t know what the point to this rant is, but when I saw this on my dash, I had to write it. Take it as you will.

I’m so glad I’m not the only one who thought this…ntm there was some comment about Spock’s appearance in this episode that REALLY bothered me because while it’s fine and dandy to say that Spock is Vulcan…LEONARD NIMOY IS NOT. 

The thing about Star Trek is that it focused on controversial subjects, such as woman as ranking officials, Chekov as a main characters with the cold war going on, and one of the first interracial kisses on television. Most of these made people uncomfortable but they still showed them. I admit i don’t know how Shatner and Nimoy felt about this but the two of them are very open minded and progressive people so hey may have been fine with it?

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

into the darkness

Ooh the humanity…! I’m hoping this goddamn movie meets my extremely high expectations. Heavens know the last one didn’t

What if

What if Benedict is going to play Sam? As in Jim’s Brother? I know the pictures show that Benedict is wearing a starfleet uniform and in TOS Sam is just a marine biologist but he’s the last male character I can think of

Man, I used to be such a social, online butterfly o_o now I just watch Star Trek and South Park fans from afar…just silently laughing along with people who don’t know i creepily keep track of their every post or ship the same ships xD when did I get so sad??!
