I am so happy!

After rewatching The Search for Spock (link to post: http://kingdomofchaos.tumblr.com/post/156991246270/httpkingdomofchaostumblrcompost156948468825i-can)  last week and Kelvin 1-3 (which are worth a post of their own another time) at the weekend, now it’s time for The Voyage Home!
Let there be whales here!

This movie makes me happy in so many ways. Even the opening music is so happy and lighthearted. Like a promise: “Hey, we have hurt your feelings back in The Wrath of Khan and The Search for Spock, we are sorry, here, take this movie as an apology!”

Yet it is unfair to watch the destruction of the Enterprise again. ._.
Klingon, get a grip on yourself!

I love how Sarek simply walks in on the hearing of the Klingon ambassador. Like “who is talking shit about my son in law?”

“Admiral Kirk has been charged with nine violations of Starfleet regulations.” Hell he’s been doing that like 394 times before.

Initiating Longing Gaze

“How do you feel?”

Why is Spock wearing a bathrobe?

Have they been wearing the same clothes for three months straight?

“Jim! You call me Jim, Spock!”

“I seem to have misplaced my uniform.” Spock you are so precious.

“Uhura is busy. I’m monitoring.”
Bones trying to bond with Spock is the sweetest and saddest thing ever.

Humpback whales!
“They’ve been extinct since the 21st century.” OMG this is still scary.

Bones is somehow wary of Spock while Jim just keeps looking at him, hoping for “his” Spock to return.

“Humpbacked people?” XDDDDDD

Jim calls Starfleet command and everyone’s like “OMG the crazy Cap’n’crew are the only ones who can save us now!”

This time travel scene looks so weird.

“Admiral! I am receiving whale song!” This is why Star Trek is so endlessly precious.

This is even better than beanies.

Bones adoring Jim adoring Spock.

“Everybody remember where we parked!”

I completely lost it when I first saw this scene. Double-dumbass on you!

“Weren’t those a birthday present from Doctor McCoy?”
“And they will be again, that’s the beauty of it.”

Jim giving out the money to the crew like he has NO IDEA how much money he has in his hands.

“What does it mean, ‘exact change?’”

“It’s where they keep the nuclear vessels … Excuse me, we are looking for nuclear vessels.”

BUS SCENE. BUS SCENE!!!
Spock gets himself a fanbase at the bus.
How important it is to Jim that Spock calls him Jim. Like hell, you don’t call your husband “Admiral”. I’m crying.

Now where is Spock gone to?

Seriously, where?

There.

THERE ARE NO WORDS FOR THIS

“Maybe he’s singing to that man!” I’M DYING OKAY

“The hell they did.”

I love Gillian.

MOAR COLOURFUL METAPHORS PLEASE.

“How will playing cards help?”

Spock looks so lost OMG I want to wrap him in blankets and give him hot chocolate.

“Are you sure it isn’t time for a colourful metaphor?”

GRACIE IS PREGNANT

“You’re not exactly catching us at our best.” “That much is certain.” YEAH SPOCK REGAINING HIS SASS

“Do you like Italian?” “Yes” “No” “Yes” “No” “I love Italian. And so do you.” “… Yes.”
THIS WAS A LIE RIGHT THERE

Bones and Scotty are the most precious thing ever being seen on film. For real.

“You ever fly?” “Oh, here and there.” Occasionally, yes.

HELLO, COMPUTER!

I’m sitting here with a grin as wide as my face I can’t stop I am so happy this movie exists.

“Sure you won’t change your mind?” “Is there something wrong with the one I have?”

“You’re from outer space.” “No I’m from Iowa.” Spock’s answer would have been “No, I’m from Vulcan. I couldn’t survive in outer space.”

Chekov is the sweetest thing ever. Everyone on Star Trek is the sweetest thing ever. But Chekov is extra sweet.

“Don’t leave him in the hands of 20th century medicine.” DARK AGES!

“We must help Chekov.” “Is this the logical thing to do?” “No, but it is the human thing to do.”

HE IS SO HAPPY TO HAVE HIS SPOCK BACK

HOSPITAL SCENE THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER.

Can I have a fanfiction about Bones getting stuck in the 20th/21st century and having to work in a hospital full of medieval technology? PLEASE?
Chekov is saved HOORAY!

THE HOSPITAL CHASE WHY ISN’T THIS OFFICIALLY THE BEST MOVIE SCENE IN ALL OF HISTORY THIS IS ILLOGICAL

ONE DAMN MINUTE ADMIRAL

Bones is happy to get the old Spock back too.

Aaaaaaand

HAVE I ALREADY MENTIONED HOW HAPPY I AM RIGHT NOW

Spock. Makes. A. Guess.
“It is a compliment?” “Yes.” “Then I will have to make the best guess I can.” Look how much Jim’s compliment means to Spock!

The message of this movie is so important. By destroying their environment, humans destroy their own future.
This is why I love Star Trek so much.

I wonder what Gracie and George are telling to the probe. “Hey there, we come from the past, where we lived in this shitty small basin and then were shipped out to sea to get killed by hunters. And then these guys came to get us out of there and broughts us to the present. Was a hell of a trip, but humans are quite alright I guess.”
Probe: “Cool story, bye.”

So now there are two whales there, soon to be three. How is this going to repopulate? What about incest? Or are they going to use advanced 23rd century genetic engineering?

Spock looks so happy and Jim grabs on to him to jump in the water. They are all happy.

Spock goes to stand with the crew. I am in love.

Jim’s punishment for disobeying orders is actually a reward?

“Your associates are people with good character.” “They are my friends.” ASDFGHJKL

“Tell her I feel fine.”

And Jim just stands there, waiting to leave with Spock. Like he still can’t believe to truly have him back.

“My friends, we’ve come home.”

OMG. I love this movie so much. It makes me happy. It’s beautiful. It is precious and it has to be treasured for all eternity.
It is such a feel-good movie.

Also, for some reason, when I think about it, I pronounce “voyage” in French in my head. Dunno. Sounds beautiful.

Okay so I guess I got the delivery dates wrong or something, because ALL THREE BOOKS ARRIVED TODAY!

The mail deliverer went upstairs to leave I Am Spock for me in person, which was why I thought the other ones hadn’t arrived yet, but they were actually in my downstairs mailbox.

Anyway, I’m super excited to read I Am Spock, Beyond Uhura, and The Travel Guide to Vulcan! 😍👏💖🖖💫
