Star Trek is nearly 50 years old now and it’s been around for so long because I think it offers hope for us as a species. The thing people have always been attracted to (with Star Trek) is the idea that we might live beyond this age of conflict and uncertainty. And it’s not only that, but it’s also the ability to work together and live in a world where everyone is accepted no matter who you are.
The original series with Gene Roddenberry was incredibly progressive. It started barely 20 years after the end of World War II, with a Japanese officer aboard the Enterprise, a black woman in charge of an entire division, and a Russian on board—albeit in subordinate roles, but it was an incredibly progressive move. It offered this utopian idea of cooperation and that’s always going to be something to strive toward until we actually achieve it. In that respect, Star Trek will never go out of fashion.
Simon Pegg, about Star Trek. (via brianyw)
whenever kirk is off on a mission or something and spock is left in charge of the enterprise, mccoy just sort of
it’s like he has this sense that spock is going to need someone to disagree with him in order to move the plot along in the next three minutes!!!
CAN I MAKE LOVE TO YOUR TAGS OR
Heheh, yeah cause everyone needs a fancy show off with a god complex XD
Seriously that fish was so up himself.
But he was also super affectionate, which was lovely.
Thank you /hugs/
I’m glad he’s not suffering any more, but that doesn’t mean I don’t miss him. I hope he finds Lilly’s fish, Sol, in his post-life place. Maybe they can be friends like Lilly and I are.
