it’s a fucking sculpture I almost shat a goddamn cathedral I thought the serpent lords had come to reclaim the fucking earth
It was not.
It was not funny.
I’d get a clip of Dr. Cox pointing out how not funny it was, but he was too busy banging his head repeatedly against a wall while trying to understand what the hell the JOKE was supposed to be and he passed out and the only thing that’s occupying his mind as he lay in a self-induced coma is “DEAR GOD THAT WAS NOT FUNNY IN THE SLIGHTEST.”
…In case anyone is wondering, this is from the episode “the Outrageous Okona.” It is one of the worst episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, if not the entire franchise.
I don’t know… The Way to Eden is probably more terrible. And I’ve heard there’s an episode of Voyager that’s so bad it’s practically non-canon.

You know what, kids? Please write female characters. Make them flawed, make them grow, try not to think about what idiots like the woman who wrote that article will say if they don’t live up to some non-existent standard.

“writing a fic with a hardcore lemon in it!!!”
i don’t understand
And this is the difference between fandom generations.
Wow. First wave fandomists.
I’m confused. Does someone want to explain what that is?
Back in the old days of fanfiction, writing a lemon was a way of saying writing something with sex in it. So ‘hardcore’ lemon would be very smutty indeed. :)
i think i’m taking “science crushes” to a new level because i had a dream where i met the person behind the tumblr anthrocentric and asked them out for drinks
That’s sounds lovely. Maybe we can talk about recreational reproductive activities in person — but…
Science flirting is best flirting.

You people are so fucking insane wtf is this shit like okay good points but of all of the mascots you chose it’s mr ‘fuck every alien with boobies’ and sprinkle leaves on his head yall need a professional helping you live
You do realize that a good number of these are direct quotes from TOS, right?
Or were you just basing the idea of Kirk fucking every alien with “boobies” off pop culture knowledge without ever seeing the source material? Because that’s like never having seen Romeo & Juliet and saying that Romeo never loved anyone before Juliet.
Her name was Rosaline.
The thing is though, as you said, these are all good points, so why should it matter how much fictional consensual sex a character has before the non-fictional good points made are to be disregarded?
Oh, and another thing: Those aren’t “sprinkle leaves,” they’re laurels. It’s a historical reference which you would know from the context of the episode, provided you’ve actually seen it.
Mmmhmm, look like it’s time to spread this around again for those unaware
This is the kind of thing the new movies missed, and that a lot of pop culture doesn’t get.
Kirk was charming and he enjoyed the ladies, but he also respected their humanity and their dignity, in and out of a romantic context.
