all the star trek tng characters are complex, interesting, three-dimensional and then there’s riker who’s just “hi i’m the walking sexual innuendo who smirks a lot and my beard has more personality than I do”
I’m watching the episode where Picard gets stuck in a turbolift with three kids. And every time I watch it, I remember reading one of those fanfics where Picard adopts the girl, and she’s like this super-genius who is better at everyone’s jobs than they are.
So then Picard assigns her to a special “kid’s crew” that runs the Enterprise during special missions. And every time anybody is like “wtf you put a 12-year-old in command?” he’s like “How fast did you finish the Kobayashi Maru test?” and they’re like “I don’t know, 45 minutes” and he’s all “she did it in 10,” so they’re all like “oh shit that’s pretty fast, nvm” This exchange happens over and over.
I forget how many stories there were in the series but I think towards the end she outranks Picard, it’s pretty crazy.
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!
