Please Captain, not in front of the Klingons (por mujobrod)

“We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead.  And yet it should be noted that in the midst of our sorrow, this death  takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a  world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the  most… human.”

OKAY, THIS IS THE LAST ONE, AND THEN I WILL FOCUS, I SWEAR!

But sometimes we just need to remember that this moment happened.

But I’m already procrastinating so I’m just going to answer the questions and no more.

  1. Do you have any pets?

    No, but I’ve had several rodenty pets in the past.

  2. Do you have a job?

    Nope! (In the summer I do.)

  3. Favourite colour?

    RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD. Ahem. Yes.

  4. What fandoms are you in?

    Yes. I mean, lots. Mostly Doctor Who. Also Star Trek and Tolkien stuff, though you see less of that stuff on my blog at present.

  5. Favourite urban legend?

    The one about the chickens numbered 1 and 3 being released into a school. It’s not a new idea, but that specific local legend was actually carried out by a classmate of mine in High School. 

  6. Favourite movie genre?

    Optimistic sci-fi.

  7. Star trek????

    THESE ARE THE VOYAGES OF THE STARSHIP ENTERPRISE ON ITS CONTINUING MISSION TO EXPLORE STRANGE NEW WORLDS TO SEEK OUT NEW LIFE AND NEW CIVILISATIONS TO BOLDLY GO WHERE NO ONE HAS GONE BEFORE *Theme music plays*

  8. Do you have any tattoos or piercings?

    Nope, and no intention of getting any in the near future.

  9. Have you ever had surgery?

    Once my dad extracted me from a desk with a chisel, and the chisel … But I don’t think that counts…

  10. ( i am stealing kittytreks last question) Selfie?

    Of course!. :) 

not-in-front-of-the-klingons said: I’m love bland foods. I rarely add seasonings or sauces etc. Overshare.. some of this is because I get gastritis or what I affectionately call stomach lava and eating becomes painful. Bland foods dont cause gastritis and are therefore my best friends

I season my food with herbs mostly. Basil, rosemary, sage, and some other stuff.

But I do relate kinda to that, because if I eat food that’s really rich with a lot of fat/grease on an empty stomach, it’s Not Fun. I never could understand how people could eat donuts for breakfast.

But when I get sick, I just want bland bland bland. That thing tastes like cardboard sprinkled with sawdust? AWESOME

1. Do you believe that the logic behind the Prime Directive is sound? Discuss.

I really do! I mean lets face it- most of what we see in the show is how the prime directive could be a really bothersome thing. Like you know, people are dying and the crew has a cure but prime directive etc etc etc HOWEVER- I feel like at it’s base- what the prime directive is supposed to do is really important. It’s telling federation people to not fuck with other people/cultures. Just don’t do it. Like there were those ferengi in voyager who controlled a planet- don’t do that. Don’t use what you have to benefit from/destroy someone else. 


7. If you were the Captain of a starship in the same position as the Voyager (stuck in an unexplored sector of the galaxy, 70 light years from home), would you keep to the Prime Directive, knowing that you would not be alive when the ship reached civilization, or would you abandon the Prime Directive, and embrace the possibility of reaching home far quicker?

Depends on the situation! for instance- if it involves screwing someone over? proooobably not

to be honest I’d probably be a bit like Janeway in her situation-  selectively disregarding the prime directive and then just ignoring that temporal prime directive like who even cares about that
