[Even though I’m planning on never having children ever and I’m not into naming kids after fictional characters anyway (someone I know named their kid “Frodo”, what the heck) but if I ever had a daughter I really wanna name her Jadzia. I’ve gained a new appreciation for Jadzia Dax lately and realized what an amazing character she is. She’s a scientist, a warrior, and a good friend. I’d happily point to her and tell my child “That’s the lady we named you after.”]

can u imagine kira being Tired after a long shift,, so jadzia picks her up and carries her on her hips to their room,, jadzia carrying kira through the promenade while kira just sleeps quietly,, kira waking up once in the trip to mention how lovely and strong jadzias arms are before falling asleep again, quark sighing happily at the cute couple, ,,

HAPPY 50TH ANNIVERSARY STAR TREK  8 September 2016
Star Trek speaks to some basic human needs: that there is a tomorrow — it’s not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb; that the human race is improving; that we have things to be proud of as humans. No, ancient astronauts did not build the pyramids — human beings built them, because they’re clever and they work hard. And Star Trek is about those things.”
                                              - Gene Roddenberry

So the teaser trailer for the next Star Trek series dropped today at CBS Upfront.

Most of the content coming from my Tumblr is bullshit, but here are some important and real quotes from Bryan Fuller, the showrunner of the next Star Trek.

Bryan Fuller on writing for Star Treks shows:

When I was watching Deep Space Nine– I think it’s one of the best incarnations of Star Trek, and I have affection for all of them, but Deep Space Nine has a very special heart because I think they were primarily character-based, more than any of the other shows. And I think Next Generation at its peak was some of the best television that has ever been, but Deep Space Nine spoke to me on a more intimate level. And I’m not sure what it was, but I just understood the math of storytelling, because storytelling is mathematics. Like, you have to build, and you have to subtract, and divide, and there’s all sorts of math to telling a story, and it just clicked.

They let me into the writers’ room, and it was Ira Behr who was like “Okay, we’ll give this guy a chance and he can be in the writers’ room.” And it was interesting to be in a writers’ room for the very first time. And what was great about the Deep Space Nine writers’ room was that they were all fans of Star Trek and you were with people who loved the program, whereas on Voyager there was sort of an attitude of you know, [disgusted] “It’s Star Trek” and all, you know. And I was just like “What are you talking about? You’re lucky to be here.” So Deep Space Nine were the fans and then Voyager was a little bit of like, you know, “We’re better than this” and I was like “No you’re not. None of us are.”

Bryan Fuller on running Star Trek shows:

I had been on Voyager for four seasons, and, you know, Voyager was an interesting job because there was this fraternity at Star Trek. That was a very interesting experience– my mind doesn’t work well in those situations. And so I was always a little jealous that I didn’t get the job– ‘cause there was a job on Deep Space Nine and there was a job on Voyager, I was like “Please, God, let me get the Deep Space Nine job.” And I got the Voyager job, which was a slightly less supportive community than Deep Space Nine was, there was an installation of fear. And there was also– the show is what the show is. And on Deep Space Nine, Ira Behr was a very visionary showrunner. So when the executive producer Rick Berman would be like “I don’t like that idea” he’d be like “I don’t care. This is what we’re doing and this is why we’re doing it.” Where on Voyager we had so many great ideas for that show that were thrown out, and then it was just sort of like okay, it’s fait accompli, the idea’s dead, and I was like “Ira would have fought for that shit.” So on Voyager, toward the end, I was getting a little frustrated with how non-human everybody was. Because I’m like “They’re facing the Borg, they’re gonna be sitting in their own stool.” There’s no kind of reality to the human emotion of it. And that grew very frustrating for me because I didn’t know how to write it, I didn’t know how to write just purely technologically or informationally. And so I was like, “What’s a show that I want to watch?”

Reading these should help give a clearer picture of what Star Trek 2017 will be like.

Safe blogs are great, but often they aren’t specific. I know I’ve told my family that I run a Star Trek blog, so giving them a url of an aesthetic blog isn’t going to help. So I’ve made @yamoksauce.

@yamoksauce is a safe blog that posts only Star Trek. Nothing will be controversial, no gay ships, no Star Trek meta that is risky (like the abortion posts, etc.), nothing that could endanger someone closeted or in an oppressive household. It will only post innocent screencaps and funny textposts that are to do with Star Trek (all series).

If you ever need to give out your url but don’t want to endanger yourself, use this blog! No personal details will be on there so anyone can use it, and there will be a basic theme including a tags page. Signal boosting is appreciated!
