inktober 24: i have this whole concept for a short comic where little Uhura meets Hoshi Sato that i will have to work up to because: 1. no experience drawing elderly ppl 2. v. little experience drawing kids and 3. uuuggghhhhh sequential art. So here’s a beginning concept of what might, someday, turn into something.

There are hundreds of reasons to watch the Animated Series (the cheap animation; the stilted, downright bizarre dialogue; the increasingly outlandish plots), but here’s an unironic one: Animation allowed them to do a lot of things that budgetary and technological limitations wouldn’t have permitted in TOS.

Such as…

Zero-gravity scenes

These super-fabulous space suits/life-support belts

Pre-TNG Holodeck!

Giant alien beasties!

And don’t forget I-fuckin’-Chaya!

In conclusion, you should all go watch TAS.

  • Kirk:Hey.
  • Bones:Yeah?
  • Kirk:You ever wonder why we’re here?
  • Bones:It’s one of life’s greatest mysteries, isn’t it? Why are we here? Are we the product of some cosmic coincidence, or is there really a god out there, watching over us? I don’t know, man, but it keeps me up at night.
  • Kirk:
  • Bones:
  • Kirk:What? I meant why are we here, in this ship?
  • Bones:What? Oh, yeah.
  • Kirk:What was all that stuff about god?
  • Bones:Nnnothing.
  • Kirk:You want to talk about it?
  • Bones:No.
  • Kirk:You sure?
  • Bones:Yeah.

idea: 20th century Voyager au. first thought is that Tom Paris is going be ~LIVING THE DREAM~ with cargo shorts full of every 20th century gizmo but instead he’s still the chairperson of the Voyager Society for Creative Anachronism and goes around making jokes about the magna carta and the black plague and his tumblr is @the-squire-of-paris (full of embarrassing pictures of Harry Kim at Ren Faires). instead of an antique TV B’Elanna builds him a full size catapult.


Okay, but Julian Bashir and Elim Garak though.

You said you guys "should probably stop"; I feel like you sort of are gonna stop when Sherlock comes back? I honestly really don't mean for this to sound shitty, but Sherlock is your real love. And a lot of people jump onto Star Trek just for K/S but sort of don't care about the rest of it and I feel like it will start to wear thin for the TJLCers. Of course I could be wrong? Time will tell. Honestly I hope your love blossoms.

what? who are you to tell people what their real love is? me and everybody else will stop when we want to. there’s nothing wrong with loving sherlock before and then deciding that you like star trek better. nobody is obliged to go back to their “”real love””. fuck off

  • me when my emotions are Bad:time to watch star trek until i forget about life and everything feels ok again
