[ FONDLY REMEMBERS A TIME WHEN JEFF AND BRITTA WERE BEST FRIENDS THAT UNDERSTOOD EACH OTHER COMPLETELY AND WERE ALWAYS BEING DUMB LITTLE FUCKERS TOGETHER AND GETTING INTO TROUBLE WHILE EVERYONE WATCHED HORRIFIED AND HAD AN EQUAL BANTER AND IT WASN’T JUST JEFF MAKING FUN OF A DUMBED DOWN HELPLESS BRITTA WHOM HE NOW MORE OR LESS DOESN’T TALK TO ]
when the answers to a question on a test are in another question
I’d give anything for Khan to be real and I would be the only person he likes besides his crew and we would fall in love and he would be fiercely protective of me and I’d get to cuddle against his sturdy body while he wears his black shirt, ugh, dear god. And those black bangs… someone hold me
You do realize that Khan is pretty much a super Hitler that committed massive amounts of genocide in the middle east and southern asia…
Also Khan wasn’t white.
I’m starting to worry about this Star Wars reboot now.
FRANKIE DEAR, YOU ARE GOING TO REGRET THIS.
There’s No Room For It On The Bridge: Sexism in Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness.
Let me being by saying that the title of this really half-assed essay is drawn from the Star Trek: The Original Series episode The Balance of Terror, which is, in of itself, an excellent episode (Romulanssss guys A+ would recommend). And yes, whilst I know the quotation is actually a comment on racist comments made about Spock (“Leave any bigotry in your quarters…”), I feel like it sets up the attitudes of what Star Trek, to me, is meant to represent very nicely. Another thing you should probably know about this episode, is that is first aired on December 13, 1966.
It seems to me that over 40 years later, the bigotry is still alive and well on the helm of the production of the Star Trek films.
(spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness ahead)
