fuckin-all-star

Ok, so, Floria Sigismondi directed Rihanna’s Sledgehammer and she says:

“The song is about breaking down barriers, being for Star Trek, it’s all about exploration, exploration of the unknown … The idea of transcendence, transcending through these barriers, transcending through the blocks that we put on ourselves, and being sort of larger than life.“

“She has her own character not rooted in the film. She’s harnessing her power to manipulate the elements. She is able to conjure light and stars and ultimately transform into the universe itself, becoming the stars and the planets.”

I’m still in love with this story and there is SO MUCH to explore.
She’s the conscious manifestation of Star Trek AND the universe…  a literal Goddess traveling through space, time and dimension.
And here’s my headcanon: At the end of the video she’s face-to-face with the Enterprise, she sees all these tiny humanoids inside a spaceship in the middle of fucking nowhere, just because they can, and I wonder, she’s so fascinated by them.
I’d love to see her interacting with the crew - specially with  Jim. She’s met him countless times, but every time is a first time in a different way - she had never seen him in this universe before.  She tells Jim she’s missed him, and she always call everyone her children, because that’s what they are. And Jim, like everyone, would be so confused by it. His only answer would be the diplomatic equivalent of ‘who the fuck are you?’ because she’s just this big purple nebula outside with a very soothing voice claiming to be his mom, and he’s pretty sure Winona is actually human???
But anyway, The Goddess transports herself into the enterprise, taking the shape of a humanoid. She stays for a while wanting to meet everyone and everyone wanting to meet her. She drinks tea with Nyota, gives advices to Pavel and plays chess with Spock… they feel connected to her and everything seems easy. But then, one day after a few weeks she suddenly leaves - along with all the records and memories of the last weeks. Like nothing happened.
The only thing the crew remembers is the feeling of warmth and pure love: this is what she gives to them, and this is what they - without even knowing - give to her… she’s their creator, and their happiness is her own. and with that in mind she feels satisfied - and ready for the next destination, just like the enterprise crew.

okay but like. okay. hear me out. it’s aos. vulcan’s chill. amanda and pike are still alive. they all have dinner sometimes. number one is probably there. embarrassing stories are shared. at some point jim and spock have to run away bc everyone’s drunk (except sarek. or maybe ALSO SAREK. sure.) and it’s all too humiliating.

these dinners happen on a weekly basis, regardless of whether or not they’re all together.
