At some point Jim has started a food fight in the mess. It all started when Cupcake, the head of engineering, said something about how he could make a better Captain than Jim. It was all a joke of course, but Cupcake had flicked a spoonful of corn at Jim, and Jim had retaliated by throwing mashed potatoes at his Head of Security. This of course started an all-out food fight. Tables were flipped over to make cover, and teams split into different groups to battle. The entire senior command was on one team, the science officers on another, and the security team on the last team. Of course the senior officers won the food fight. It all came to a close when Spock decided to launch an entire bowl of Vulcan soup at the engineering team, and it landed square in the middle of Cupcakes chest. He then pretended to die, in the most dramatic way possible, stumbling into the middle of the food fight, and using a napkin as his white flag. It was a battle that went down in history. It soon adapted into a paintball fight that the entire crew would participate in whenever they were on Earth for repairs. Command won every year, except one. The one year Bones had decided to make his own team out of all of the medical staff. The nurses and doctors were brutal, and had no mercy for anyone.

Why are alien foods always portrayed as horrible and disgusting, and any human eating it is forced to suffer for comedic intent?
Meanwhile human foods are always universally lovable (much to the surprise of any alien who tries them).

Humans consume a ton of things that would be disgusting to non-humans. Milk. Cheese. Alcohol (most alcohols are made by rotting plant matter. Wine is rotten grape juice). Raisins. Prunes. Coffee.

And why can’t their food ever be portrayed as great?
“You’ve never had Kander?!? Come over to my quarters this evening and I’m make you some! I think you’ll love it. It’s made of minced yinda meat, wrapped up in these little pouches similar to that ravioli dish you made me. Hey, you know what? Bring some of that tow-may-tow sauce of yours. They might go together pretty well!”

my girlfriend and I had a cooking show together, it was basically just a normal cooking show (I think we may have been making either lasagne or pad thai?) but it was supervillain themed, like, our test kitchen/studio was at the bottom of a volcano and there was some huge ray gun we used to cook the food, also we were both wearing catsuits like seven of nine from star trek? it was weird

Omg but like

Amanda and Sarek talking to each other in a bar at an after-work type of thing, and Sarek finding this human woman (this small, quiet, lovely human woman) utterly fascinating.

Amanda volunteering to drive Sarek to an important meetings during the harsher parts of winter, and Sarek being impressed with her unique, human insights, and Amanda finding his rare, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it humour charming. 

Oreos being Amanda’s favorite thing ever, and whenever she visits Sarek’s apartments on the weekends after they start a tentative relationship, there’s always a thing of Oreos in the cabinet and a jug of milk in the fridge.

Sarek realizing a month after meeting Amanda that he’s head over heels in love with her, and logic can go fuck itself because he is going to marry the shit out of her
