This exchange was so early on in the show! Season 1 or 2, I can’t quite remember. I love it.
Just finished watching season 3, & now taking a break to watch some bad movies. I can’t want TNG all the time, I get overwhelmed by all the emotions I feel about it. *_*
I’m sure every young nerdling has this experience in their growing up time, but I remember for many of my teenage years feeling ashamed of my enjoyment of Star Trek, like I’d failed some better part of me who only read Important Books and wanted to be an Important Writer when I grew up (I was a troubled teenager). Finally coming to the realization that I should embrace what I liked, admit my geekery and I’d be a much happier person was the most freeing moment of my life.
The geek shall set you free. *_*
As this kids say these days - FEELS
PEDANT TIME: Because of their collars, this scene must come from Season 3 and beyond.
Also, Data and Geordi are the best couple in all of Star Trek
Don’t feel bad about the pedantry. On the days I see some irrelevant Star Trek detail out of place on the internet, I scroll down until I find the inevitable person who’s already pointed it out for me.
That person is my favorite internet person on those days. Thank you.
WHY WON’T THEY AIR COMMUNITY?
Hugh Laurie (via becandthebluebox)
Not to be a stickler or whatever, and Laurie’s point is sweet, but the three words Kirk said were the most beautiful in the universe were “Let me help”. And that’s a very different thing, an attitude of reaching out to others and helping them as needed. That to me is actually more beautiful than being openly vulnerable.
Thank you, sir. I was just about to say this exact thing when I thought to myself, “Someone misquoted Star Trek on the internet; this problem has already been addressed.”
ALTERNATE SCENE B SPOCK PRIME Then I ask that you do yourself a favor... put away logic, and do what feels right. The world you've inherited lives in the shadow of incalculable devastation... but there's no reason you must face it alone. And from around his neck, he removes the PENDANT that until now, we've only caught glimpses of. Places it on the table beside his younger self. The feeling in his eyes is profound... SPOCK PRIME (CONT'D) This was a gift to me. Representing... a dream. One we were unable to fulfill. (softly) The way you can now. And moves to the door. Stops. Offers the VULCAN SALUTE: SPOCK PRIME (CONT'D) As my customary farewell would appear oddly self serving, I will simply say... good luck. Their eyes hold. Spock turns, disappearing into the corridor. Young Spock stares at the empty doorway a beat, his mind a jumble of thoughts. Looks to the pendant... and realizes it's a HOLO-EMITTER. After considering a beat, he hits an activation button and a MOVING HOLOGRAPHIC MESSAGE materializes before him: CAPTAIN JAMES T. KIRK. WILLIAM SHATNER. As always, brash, wry, confident -- and SINGING: KIRK/ SHATNER Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you... (stops, grins) I know I know, it's illogical to celebrate something you had nothing to do with, but I haven't had the chance to congratulate you on your appointment to the ambassadorship so I thought I'd seize the occasion... Bravo, Spock -- they tell me your first mission may take you away for awhile, so I'll be the first to wish you luck... and to say... (beat, emotional) I miss you, old friend. ... and we're PUSHING IN on Young Spock, taking in the image of Kirk's future self, the message, but above all -- the clear, unquestionable friendship these two men had... INT. CORRIDOR - CONTINUOUS As Spock Prime walks off down the corridor, he passes right by a man conferring with a nurse -- the man pauses, turns... it's SAREK. Suddenly overcome by a feeling that the stranger who's just passed him is... oddly familiar. KIRK/SHATNER (V.O.) I suppose I'd always imagined us... outgrowing Starfleet together. Watching life swing us into our Emeritus years...
As far as Shatner’s last words to the franchise, the alternative to to this was “Oh my.”
Today on the National Weather Service’s website.
Then there’s this
I see what they did there.
Someone mentioned a black spell that kills an enemy’s dude, then returns it from the graveyard to play under your control, mixing Swamp-powered peanut butter with mono-black chocolate. I made up a cycle with that theme and this was my favorite result. It’s just a fat, slow spell that takes away all the things on an enemy’s creature and puts it on one of your own.
Thinking of taking away the “creature you control” bit, so it has multiplayer flexibility.
Over the weekend, we have managed to ferret out a few more details.
The series will be called Assimilation. It will feature the Borg and the Cybermen.
It is written by Scott and David Tipton, who wrote a number of Star Trek comics for IDW, as well working on IDW’s Infestation crossover series.
It will be drawn by J.K. Woodward, best known for his Fallen Angel work for the company.
Of all the crossovers I’ve posted in the last two days, this is the realest and most frightening.
Except for the Shreck/Shadow thing.
Until The Doctor hungrily licks Riker’s beard. Then all bets are off.
