i really really hope to see them in upcoming movies

Finn’s parents--a possibility?

As much as I really would love to find out that Finn’s a Skywalker, I don’t know if that’s what we’re going to see in the movies.

But, I just finished reading Claudia Gray’s Lost Stars (which is, incidentally, really good), and now I wonder. Could the co-protagonists, Thane Kyrell and Ciena Ree, be his parents?

Without giving too much away, Thane and Ciena both grow up best friends on Jelucan during the rise of the Empire and wind up attending the Imperial Academy together. As the story moves through the events of the first movie trilogy, one of them ends up joining the Rebellion while the other climbs the ranks in the Empire.

Despite this, they’re madly in love with each other and each is torn between what they see as their duty and their friendship.

Ciena is described as having dark skin and thick curly hair that she softens with oil and usually wears braided. 

Cut for spoilers.

Short and sweet movie review: Star Trek: Beyond

A great, fun & proper celebration of the original series

Finally! Star Trek Beyond premiered just yesterday & I rushed straight to the cinema. Been waiting for that movie so long and I must say it did live up to the expectations, I am a happy trekkie, it was so. much. fun. It was exactly what a Star Trek movie is supposed to be. They definitely resurrected after Into Darkness, which I personally like, it has its moments, but I also know it is flawed. This, I can tell you, is pure Star Trek. Without cringy moments and without Kirk hitting on everything that moves and breathes. And a v important info: I am OBSESSED with their new Starfleet jackets. I honestly don’t think it’s even healthy to be that obsessed, but I live for it. Omg.
