I just watched a couple of episodes of classic Star Trek and I have two interesting observations.

1 - in the fight scenes there is very little fighting that goes on, there is, however, a whole lot of slapping.

2 - Spock will mind meld with anything; random bad guys, a grumpy McCoy (okay, this was mirror!Spock), passing space probes with AI...

BBC America started airing "Battlestar Galatica" a few weeks ago and since I've never seen it (I know, right?) I figured this was a good chance to catch it from the beginning.

For the last few weeks I've had a niggling in the back of my head over Apollo and thanks to the mini-marathon today I figured it out - Lieutenant Kennedy!

Previous days here... )

Day 19 - A pairing you’ve rooted for since the beginning?
Trip/T'Pol “ST: Enterprise”

She's the cool and logical outsider, He's the sweet talkin' southern boy who's out to get under her skin (and then all over her skin).

This video sums it up quite nicely -

And a bonus Baby Elizabeth video!

I've had the flu for the last three days, so I've ended up on the sofa watching reruns of Star Trek.

I really do like Star Trek. Picard is awesome, Spock is laughing at everyone behind there backs and Trip/T'Pol are the best couple of all time.

She is a thing of beauty. And there is this wonderful moment at 5:37, that is the look of a man in love. Sigh!

One of my NaNoWriMo "Project Work in Progress" stories.

Thanks go out to the amazing [ profile] cincoflex who created the term, Koltarkta, and graciously let me use it. If you think Spock/Uhura is hot, you should check out her Trip/T'Pol stories.

I also want to thank the amazing folks at the Vulcan Language Dictionary. With out all their hard work, this story would have never happened.

There was always a thrill that comes with opening a new book.

For Cadet Uhura the thrill was intensified by that fact that the book was written in a different language. She fell back on her bed and drunk in the first line.

A few months ago Wil Wheaton blogged about a cool book he found called "Shatnerquake". Bill Shatner has to battle every character he's ever played.

Well, today the author is holding a one day give away. All he asks is that once you've read it, to post a review - at Amazon, or your blog, or whatever review site you may know.

Go to the author's blog to download it.

Unbeta'd, unre-read, yup, this hot off the press gang.

Note for anyone who didn't see "Star Runners" - wait, what'd ya mean I'm the only one who saw it? Okay then...

Note for everybody: In the Sci-Fi Original Movie "Star Runners" Connor Trinneer wore an outfit that I swear came from the "Farscape" costume department. Also, James Kyson Lee was his side kick - which has nothing to do with this story, but was still cool. "Star Runners" = Trip and Ando fight bugs.

Now to the fic! )

- Bold all of the following TV shows which you've ever seen 3 or more episodes of in your lifetime.
- Italicize a show if you're positive you've seen every episode of it.

Go outside or read a book or something! )

Once upon a time "Star Trek" was owned by the Great Bird of the Galaxy, now it's owned by Universal - I am neither.

Are you sure you want to do this? The man in the booth gives me one last chance to back out.

I nod my head and brace myself. I know that it's dangerous, both the process and everything that comes after it, but if it means getting my shot at him... Well, I'll put myself through anything.

The man punches some buttons and the machine starts to hum. The hum gets louder as the arms begin to spin. The world is gone now, just the spinning lights and the ear splitting hum.

Suddenly everything stops and for one second it's peaceful, then the pain rips through my body and drops me to my knees.

Oh my god... )

I should be sleeping but now that I got my muse talking I can't shut her up.

[ profile] erinm_4600 wanted Doug Dorsey and The Queen.

“So there we were, tied 2 - 2, down to the last 30 seconds and they had just gotten a power play. I still don't know how our wing manged to get the puck, but I'll never forget the look on their goalie face when he ripped his mask off after the buzzer.”

“I just can't believe that you play hockey.”


“You're a Queen! You rule a country! You wear a crown! How do you end up playing hockey?”

“I grew up in a palace made of ice, what else was there to do?”

[ profile] moony_blues wanted Alt!Kirk and Han Solo.

“I call dibs on the chick that just walked in.”

“The green one or blue one?”

“The green one.”


“Whoever loses buys the next round.”


“Well, duty calls.”

“See you next week?”

“Yeah. It was nice talking to you.”

I made a Trip/T'Pol calendar for June and thought I'd share.

I made it to fit an 8.5x11 inch sheet of paper, but if you want it in a different size to use as a background let me know.

Okay kiddies, gather 'round and I'll tell you a story.

Everything has a beginning,: blues music, pizza, fireworks, fanfiction cliche.

This story is about the last on the list.

History... )

There were five others, but they only had one episode of Heroes and one episode of Trek and no named roles.

Back story: Right after the story arc of Baby Elizabeth aired I wanted to write something connecting her and Spock. I've been kicking around all kinda of different scenarios - T'Pol and Sarek, T'Pol and Amanda, T'Pol and Spock - but it just didn't feel right.

All the fanfic the new movie put out jogged the right pieces into place. So after four years I give you "IDIC".

Time can hide history... )
