Don't Let Me Stop You - Anti-Spock/Uhura, Uhura/Scotty, Spock/Kirk [02 Nov 2009|12:35am]

Don't Let Me Stop You

Summary;
Song is from Spock's POV.

Spock and Uhura are a couple, but lately Spock has been noticing some curious behavior on Uhura's part when aroung Scotty (this is the black/white scenes). Spock confronts Uhura about this and basically tells her that is she doesn't want to be with him, she shouldn't be (most of the video). He'll be alright because he's got Jim to lean on (purple/green scenes). At the end of the video, Spock tells Uhura that he's making up her mind for her since she can't seem to do so and...well, you'll see.

Notes:
- Black/White scenes = past happenings
- Purple/Green scenes = what Spock hopes for the future

TOS essay anthology [01 Aug 2006|10:14am]

rosebb
Hi all-- I just wanted to recommend an upcoming Star Trek title. It's called Boarding the Enterprise, and it's a collection of scholarly (and funny!) essays on Star Trek (TOS only!). My favorite essay so far is "Exaggerate with Extreme Prejudice", on the greatness of Scotty. You can check out previews here: http://www.smartpopbooks.com/allbooks/index.html#StarTrek

Thanks for letting me pop in and hope you enjoy!

It's fitting somehow that he died on the anniversary of the greatest engineering achievement in human history, a space engineering achievement at that, the landing of Apollo 11 on the Moon.

Godspeed, Scotty. We love you.

I am new and have enjoyed reading your posts. I have been a star trek fan most of my life. I especially enjoy Voyager, but they are all great. I have started a community for one liners and wisdom from Star Trek, kindof a "Everything I need to know I learned on ST" site. Come put your one liners and wisdom there. It is trekwisdom. "See ya round the galaxy."

Save Enterprise! (x-posted) [03 Feb 2005|04:15pm]

[ mood | distressed ]

Yesterday, something horrible happened. UPN announced that Star Trek: Enterprise would end its run after this, the fourth season. That's right, they cancelled it!

I can't tell you how upset I was to hear this news. Enterprise has been a constant joy for me to look forward to every week this year. This has been their best season so far and it has been amazing! The new writers have taken the show in the direction it should have gone from the very beginning. Even viewers who hated Enterprise at first have been in love with it this season.

I think it was a mistake by UPN to cancel it at this time. I'm not alone. Some people might recall that the original series was axed by NBC in the sixties but it was resurrected by a massive fan letter-writing campaign. The same thing can work for Enterprise.

Save Enterprise is a site dedicated to bringing the show back. They have all the most current information on who to write to and they are the most well-organized campaigners. Please visit the site and write a letter.

MSNBC is currently running a poll which deals with how viewers feel about the loss of Enterprise. You can bet UPN is keeping an eye on it. So please go vote!

And spread the word!

If you don't have the time to write a letter of your own, here's one you can copy and print. Just address it to Mr. Leslie Moonves

Mr. Leslie Moonves
Co-President, Co-Chief Operating Officer
CBS Broadcasting Inc.
51 West 52nd Street
New York, NY 10019 U.S.A.

Dear Mr. Moonves,
 
I’m writing about what I regard to be the poor decision to cancel Star Trek: Enterprise. I am aware that Enterprise has not had the same following as its precursors, however, this season, the new writing team has done a phenomenal job of correcting that problem. I know many Star Trek fans who have begun to watch Enterprise faithfully, only this season.

This series has every chance now to do even better than some of the other Star Trek series. Cancelling this series now will only serve to alienate many of your viewers. Instead, Enterprise should be granted at least a further fifth season to prove itself. Syndicating the series would also improve its ratings.

Star Trek has changed the lives of so many people, mine included. Enterprise continues to push the envelope for a one-hour drama. I believe you can only benefit from allowing it to have another season.

Thank you for your time in this matter and I hope to see many more years of Star Trek Enterprise on television. I know that one of the main web sites trying to help the show is the "Save Enterprise" Group and they currently have over 50,000 members in their network.
 
Sincerely,



(your name, address)

An Official Canon Explanation at Long Last [18 Dec 2004|01:28pm]

davidkevin
[ mood | geeky ]

From StarTrek.com, December 16, 2004:


EXCERPTED TEXT BEGINS:

It's probably the single most popular topic of conversation among Star Trek fans: Why do Klingons look different during Captain Kirk's day than all the times after and before? What happened to their forehead ridges during that period? (We all know the real reason — the original show didn't have the budget for prosthetic makeup...and starting with the movies they did. But that explanation is no fun!) In fact, at conventions fans consistently ask if that discrepancy would ever be explained on the show, thus becoming "canon". Well, it's finally happening. The 15th episode of Season 4 of Star Trek: Enterprise will begin to address that issue, and it's called "Affliction".

"Affliction" is the first of a two-parter, written by Mike Sussman from a story by Manny Coto. The second part is called "Divergence", written by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, and those episodes will air in February. (During sweeps...clever, huh?)

The Klingon forehead issue is a complicated one, because it has to take into account a number of factors if one is to stay true to the Star Trek universe as previously established. The simplest theories (e.g. "southern" vs. "northern" breeds) have to be thrown out because </i>Star Trek: Deep Space Nine</i> reprised three Klingon characters from the Original Series -- Kor, Koloth, and Kang -- and gave them forehead ridges in "Blood Oath". Then there was "Trials and Tribble-ations", where the crew went back in time to Station K-7, looked around and said, "Those are Klingons??" They turned to bumpy-headed Worf for an explanation, and he would only say it's a long story and "We do not discuss it with outsiders."

Well, rest assured the writers have taken all that into account and have come up with a scenario consistent with all those elements. We won't give it away here, of course, but we will say that it ties very neatly into other aspects of Trek history.

[ ... ]

"Affliction" is tentatively scheduled to air February 18, with "Divergence" the week after.


EXCERPTED TEXT ENDS.

The entire article may be found here: http://www.startrek.com/startrek/view/news/article/8695.html.

Of course, there always was a much simpler explanation: the Klingon Empire is a multi-star system entity, just as is the United Federation of Planets, and therefore, like the Federation, would be multi-species. Different species of "Klingons" could have been encountered over the centuries, just as to an outsider everyone in the Federation would be a "Federationist", for lack of a better word, whether they be Human, Vulcan, Andorian, or whatever.

Oh, well.

Sir Richard Branson Is My New Hero [27 Sep 2004|02:33pm]

davidkevin
[ mood | ecstatic ]

Note the name of the first ship of its class!


QUOTED TEXT BEGINS:

"VIRGIN BOSS IN SPACE TOURISM BID"

Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson has signed a £14m agreement which will see his company take passengers into space.

The British entrepreneur is having five "spaceliners" built in the U. S. by the team behind the SpaceShipOne vehicle.

The California-based rocket plane became the first privately developed carrier to go above 100 km in June.

Sir Richard says it will cost around £100,000 to go on a "Virgin Galactic" spaceliner, and the first flights should begin in about three years' time.

Sir Richard revealed his new venture at a briefing held on Monday at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London.

"We've done quite a lot of research; we think there are about 3,000 people out there who would want to do this," Sir Richard told the BBC.

"If it is a success, we want to move into orbital flights and then, possibly, even get a hotel up there."

The deal is with Mojave Aerospace Ventures, the company set up by aviation pioneer Burt Rutan and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen to exploit the technology developed for SpaceShipOne.

SpaceShipOne is one of more than twenty craft vying for the $10m (£5.7m) Ansari X-Prize, which rewards the first team to send a non-government, three-person craft over 100 km (62 miles) into space, and repeat the feat in the same carrier inside two weeks.

The Virgin boss was flanked at Monday's announcement by Rutan, who has already collaborated with Sir Richard on Virgin GlobalFlyer, a jet plane designed to fly non-stop around the world without refuelling.

*****

THE VIRGIN SPACESHIP
The vehicle will have room for five passengers
A week's pre-flight training will be required
Three-hour trip; three minutes of weightlessness
Flights to leave from Mojave Desert, initially
Tickets to cost about £100,000, perhaps less

*****

"Virgin has been in talks with Paul Allen and Burt throughout this year and in the early hours of Saturday morning signed a historical deal to license SpaceShipOne's technology to build the world's first private spaceship to go into commercial operating service," said Sir Richard, who founded the Virgin Group of companies.

Commentators said it was a logical next step for someone to come in and move the SpaceShipOne technology into the commercial flight business.

David Ashford, director of UK-based Bristol Spaceplanes Limited, another X-Prize contender, said space was finally being opened up for ordinary people.

"The price will come down -- there's no doubt about that," he told BBC News Online.

"The X-Prize has succeeded in doing what it set out to do. The original idea was to break the mould of thinking -- to break Nasa's monopoly on space policy. Space tourism should have happened many years ago."

Mojave Aerospace Ventures has been asked by Sir Richard to produce a bigger version of SpaceShipOne. The VirginSpaceShip (VSS) will carry five passengers compared with the two-passenger capacity currently offered by SpaceShipOne.

The final design for the maiden ship, the VSS Enterprise, should be signed off in 2005.

The vehicle will then have to be built and tested before beginning a scheduled space service.

"Every passenger will have a spectacular view; they will have considerable windows and luxurious seats," Sir Richard said.

"Initially, they will take off from the Mojave Desert near Los Angeles. It will be a three-hour journey. Passengers would have about a week's training prior to taking off."

The Virgin Group has interests in a range of businesses, including trains, finance, soft drinks, music, mobile phones, holidays, and cars.

Globally, Sir Richard is probably best known for his Virgin Atlantic airline and for his speedboat and ballooning adventures.

He said many of the group's existing pilots would be in line to take the controls of a VSS vehicle after the necessary training.
