sometimes a little knowledge is good

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

All I know about Star Trek Discovery is what starandrea has posted and the (surprisingly little) that has crossed my tumblr dashboard. Here is what the show looks like in my head: 1. There is a woman. (I hope more than one?) She is great. I like this part. 2. A desert? There was a […]

fic rec Friday

Because I love fics that focus on the crew being awesome — of course they support the command team, but that doesn’t mean they can’t make a game out of some friendly heckling. Echolocation, by Darksknight “Oh, um, were we not supposed to know?” The girl with silver hair blushed a deep blue.

gotta love the rat poison question

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

We get a lot of weird questions at my job, and yesterday saw a repeat of one of my favorites: “I read online that an ingredient in YOUR products is also in RAT POISON!!! What do you have to say about that?!?!?!” (This question always seems to be accompanied by the gotcha punctuation.) And I […]

movie re-watch: Star Trek Insurrection

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

I have mixed feelings! Because on the one hand this is clearly the best of the TNG movies, and on the other hand it’s one of those problematic faves. (If one had four hands, the third would be ‘of course we’re not worried about continuity, this is Star Trek’ and the fourth would be ‘has […]

movie day!

Time to check that last Star Trek movie off my re-watch list! (There are maybe a few things I want to get done first today.) But after that, it’s Movie Day!

movie Monday: more Star Trek!

Monday, March 6th, 2017

Yesterday I planned a Star Trek movie marathon of the three TNG movies (Nemesis doesn’t count, I’m ignoring it forever). I only made it through Generations and First Contact before I started dozing off, which I guess means I’m now officially a grown up. Here’s my question: seat belts. The reboot/Kelvin timeline is all about […]

Okay, everyone’s seen this, right? I saw it linked a couple places before I actually clicked through, so just in case — Long Live, Star Trek vid by llintrek (Llin) Covers all series, plus the movies, old and new. Very fun — there was a lot more hugging in Star Trek than I remember!

Find It And Keep It, by shinyjenni A nice gentle story for a Friday — presents that the Enterprise crew give Jaylah. Scotty has brought her a piece from the Franklin’s engine. “Stole it while we were looking her over,” he explains.

I read this fic before seeing the movie, and enjoyed it despite not having any idea who anyone was or what they were talking about. Post-viewing, I read it again — still liked it! Carry It With You, by cosmic_llin So much of what she’d thought of as hers really belonged to the ship. She […]

movie review: Star Trek Beyond

Sunday, July 31st, 2016

I liked it! Similar to the other two movies, the closer you look at the plot the less it makes sense, but in a cheering reminder of the first one, I found I didn’t really mind. It made me want to make up my own finagled half-answers to explain things, instead of making me want […]
