Fame at last!

There’s been plenty of romance and bromance on Trek over the years so us Trekkie Girls have been looking for par’Mach in all the right places….
After discussing which members of the cast we’d most like to Pon Farr with, (Sam: Data, call me!) we decided to shake it up and think about which characters would be a good match across the series. Which characters do you think would make a great couple?
We also spent new years discussing how you could possibly celebrate NYE in space?
With the run up to Christmas, we like many others have avoided the shops like the Telurian Plague and taken to shopping online. But what do you buy the Trekkie in your life?
Here are some of our top finds:
Have you ever watched one of those Jerry Springer episodes with the Man who felt he should have been born a Women?…I know exactly how they feel. Except I have no confusion over my gender….but with Time. I DO NOT belong in this time line – its always felt wrong to me!
Most people put it down to watching too much Star Trek – they are right. Some say I am ‘from another planet’ ….thats not it though. And I’ve given it a lot of thought. As I look at all the aliens in ST, I’m not a Raktijino drinking warrior like a Klingon, I’m too much of a lefty to be a Ferengi and I don’t have the bone structure for a Cardassian, but those self-righteous know-it-all humans…yeah thats who I am.
I first had these inclinations as a young child. I recently came across an old school book which went into some detail about ‘what I want to be when I grow up’. Obviously I was going to enlist in Starfleet but I was unsure which area to specialize in. I was naturally drawn to command….as Kirk says you don’t give up being Captain of the Enterprise. But ships counselor looked pretty appealing too less hours, better office and you’re still a bridge officer!
– The note from my teacher suggests “have you thought about becoming a vet?” (what the Spock!?)
Whilst technology is having a growth spurt (thanks to Henry Starling and Capt Brannigan) I worry that Humans aren’t keeping up in terms of their personal development – both individually and as a collective species. I am shocked that some people harbour attitudes which would have been considered hateful by Victorian standards.
There are lots of sets backs to living in the wrong time line…..planes….injections….microsoft…..More on that later though……
Honestly, she could make Counsellor Troi look like an emotionless Android. I know they have deep strong emotions but she would get teary eyed over the smallest thing.
I’m glad he raised this….ohhh my!
In case you don’t know what we’re talking about, you really should be reading everything Larry Nemecek has to say about anything by way of Star Trek decree: TrekLand Supplemental
This is our take on Larry’ question “Is TNG due for a Comeback?”
Now as we have mentioned we were TNG fans first, born into that time line so grew up watching it. We can now appreciate TOS and love the “Retro” look of the show but we confess to being those viewers who as kids would have scoffed at the MDF sets and Christmas lighting effects.
When talking to our TiT (Trekkie In Training) Sarah, we asked her how she was getting on with watching TNG and she said “yeah I’m enjoying it but it all seems so dated and 80’s” – I must admit I was a bit taken, I imagine this is how my dad must have felt when I first scoffed at the sets of the USS Enterprise no bloody A, B, C or D. However much like when Dax reminisced about the the look and feel of classic 23rd century style I find myself smiling fondly on those early season of TNG with it’s lycra covered crew and wallpapered corridors. In fact we have recorded a Trekkie Girls episode about the very subject of TNG fashions which we must upload.
Here in the UK we have seen the TV Channel CBS Action pour some money into advertising the reruns of TNG and even though I didn’t see any of the actual billboards, I was comforted to know they were out there.
But Larry has got it right, TNG is gonna have it’s comeback moment and its fast approaching, in-fact I happened to be shopping with my dad today to and I noticed some shoulder pads and realised that was the final peice for my TNG skant dress I’m making for an event this weekend. The 23rd century look is so last year, this season its all about the 60’s – that’s the 2360’s!
Btw, Brent Spiner, Wil Wheaton and Jim Parson all in one Big Bang Episode! Excuse us whilst we have a nerd-gasm!
Today TNG turns 24!! (since it debuted) which coming from a pair at the grand old age of 29 it doesn’t seem that old. However upon hearing that Enterprise turned 10 years old on the 26th….What The Spock!? Is there a rip in the space time continuum??
