Imagine once again being kirk’s sister and he finds out your in love with chekov

You didn’t have any reason to be nervous. Captain Kirk wasn’t nearly as scary to you as he was to Chekov, who was finding it hard to meet your brother’s eyes.
Jim looked back and forth between the two of you, obviously trying to enact some kind of ‘maybe if I scare him enough, he’ll leave my sister alone’ kind of feeling. But you crossed your arms, glaring at Jim. “Listen, we just want your permission to go down for shore leave. There’s this really nice spot we want to visit together-”
“Alright, fine.” Kirk interrupted. And to his credit, Jim did try to look happy, for your sake. But you can tell it was forced. “You deserve a break, I suppose.”
You gave a sigh, looking over to Chekov with a bit of victory before returning your eyes to your brother. “Thanks.”
Spock, the first officer whose advice was always effectual, possessed a strength of understanding, and coolness of judgement, which qualified him to be the counselor of the ship’s captain, and enabled him frequently to counteract, to the advantage of them all, that eagerness of mind in Captain Kirk which must generally have lead to imprudence. Spock had an excellent heart, positioned somewhere near his kidneys; his feelings were strong, but he knew how to govern them: it was a knowledge which his captain had yet to learn, and which one of his fellow crew members had resolved never to learn.
Dr. Leonard McCoy’s abilities were, in many respects, equal to Spock’s. He was sensible and clever; but eager in every thing; his sorrows, his joys, could have no moderation. He was generous, amiably cynical, interesting: he was everything but logical.
I’m watching the final frontier with my sister and the part where uhura is dancing as a distraction to get them into paradise city but it doesn’t show her face yet my sis leans over and says “i bet that’s jim” and I’ve never been more proud
If someone could kindly look at me the way that Jim Kirk looks at Spock and just kind of cherish me wholeheartedly and unreservedly and never let their work take precedence over us and wait for me and fight for me and kill for me and scream love through their eyes with every ounce of their being and protect me with the ferocity of one hundred and eighteen thousand lion prides till the end of their existence that would be great.
Plot: When Joey visits an army recruitment office she has no idea that she could meet a woman like Rayna in a small country town like this. The problem is that Rayna has kids and a husband, so she keeps their conveniently beneficial affair secret while she uses her kids as a reason to hold on to her family.
I’m not sure why this film was so unmemorable. The performance of Lola Kirke (sister of Jemima Kirke, Girls) was by far the best part of this film. Her desire for Rayna was sensitive and I empathized with the good nature of the character. She seemed to be level headed, however continued to get burnt by her lover.
The film is supposed to be a representation of lesbian soldiers who go AWOL (Military term for Absence With Out Leave) to pursue relationships, during the time of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. Instead the film focused too much on the romance between the two women, which was also not very believable.
The photography was nice and faded white to give it a light and dreamy feel.
The film ends the way we don’t want any lesbian film to end - with the wife again using Joey’s money to see her husband. Boo!
