Hello there! I wanted to ask you something since you seem to know a whole lot about Star Trek! So I before I started reading your Too Human story I knew nothing about Star Trek. However the more I read about Lou and Sybok's adventures the more I really wanted to get into it. Thing is... due to my limited knowledge about Star Trek I have absolutely no idea how. I'm not sure where to find and watch it, nor where to start in the series. Any advice?

Hi There,

Welcome to my fandom. Where to start? Well at the beginning:

  • Enterprise (TV)
  • TOS (TV)

Watch all of the original movies:

  • 2.1 Star Trek: The Motion Picture
  • 2.2 Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
  • 2.3 Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
  • 2.4 Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
  • 2.5 Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
  • 2.6 Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
  • The Next Generation (TV)

Watch all of the movies: 

  • Star Trek Generations
  • Star Trek: First Contact
  • Star Trek: Insurrection
  • Star Trek Nemesis
  • Deep Space 9 (TV)
  • Voyager (TV)

Then I would start and watch Star Trek Discovery (that timeline is between Enterprise and TOS).

Then watch the Star Trek Reboot movies:

  • Star Trek 2009
  • Star Trek Into Darkness
  • Star Trek Beyond

There is also a Star Trek Animated series too (TV). It features the TOS cast, but honestly, watch all of the above first and you can’t go wrong.

I could've sworn I saw something a while back that showed screencaps of the number on Spock's quarters, and the number on Bones', that made it look like they're right next to each other? Unless I'm remembering wrong or it wasn't real...

Alfie said this same thing when the ask came in, but I searched every Star Trek info and database website I could think of and they all said Spock’s quarters were never stated or confirmed. So I thought maybe Alfie had remembered incorrectly.

But you know what, you’re absolutely right! See this post!

I guess that kind of squashes Kirk/Spock bathroom sharing since Kirk is on deck 5 and Spock on deck 3, but Spones shippers might be happy with this.

If the quarters are arranged like houses then these two odd numbers could be right next to each other, and if they are on a shared bathroom deck then they could share a bathroom! Unfortunately I can’t confirm that because the refit schematics from TMP have lettered decks and the decks in TOS are numbered so it’s difficult to say. 


2265: 5 year mission started
2267: Pon farr 1
2270: 5 year mission ended
2273: The Motion Picture
2274: Pon farr 2
2281: Pon farr 3
2285: Wrath of Khan + Search for Spock
2286: Whale movie
2287: Kirk climbs a mountain
2288: Pon farr 4 (assuming Spock’s biological clock resumed its status after his regeneration)
2293: The event that we do not speak of but which brings this timeline to an end

Is BBC Sherlock Coming Out?

Watching the pre-season BBC Sherlock, S4, promotional material seep out, and the answering fan excitement in TJLC fandom, is such a heart-stopping moment in television. The JohnLock Conspiracy being the idea that Moffat and Gatiss planned, from the start, to make John and Sherlock, eventually, canonically queer and in love, and to believe that that is where their BBC version of Sherlock is headed.

Older LGBT+ folk like me (Gatiss’ generation) have lived with queer subtext for a long time in the movies, for instance Ben Hur (1959), Lawrence of Arabia (1962), Some Like it Hot (1959) and Gatiss’ favourite, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970), to name just a few which affected me as a youngster. This subtext was subversive when out LGBT+ people’s stories were simply impossible to tell on screen, often inserted by queer writers and complicit actors under the noses of the studios (which either didn’t notice, or didn’t care because it was covert or played for laughs).  Remember, that “sodomy” was a felony in every state in the United States before 1962 (punishable by imprisonment or hard labour) and it took until 2003 for it to be struck down in all remaining states, and homosexuality was only decriminalised in the UK in 1967.

But now, in the early 21st century, queer subtext exists at a complicated juncture. 

Because it IS now possible to tell out LGBT+ people’s stories on-screen (to an extent - not everywhere and not equally) and we, the LGBT+ audience, are wondering whether queer subtext is now the opposite of subversive - and rather, has become cowardly, needlessly closeted, and teasing (”queerbaiting”). 

There’s certainly been a metric tonne of queer subtext in the BBC’s current Sherlock, just as there was a bunch of it in the BBC’s Merlin and as there continues to be, at 12 seasons and counting, in the CW’s Supernatural.  There’s already a heap of it in the new BBC America’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.  But, is this subtext subversive or regressive, exploitative, or boundry-pushing?

It’s a tremendously difficult question. For instance, we might find all the set dressing narrative, script subtext and acting choices in Supernatural which suggest Dean Winchester is bisexual, subversive - a nod to the LGBT+ audience (and the rest of the audience receptive to the subtext) in the face of a network which demands a heterosexual hero story. On the other hand, as other shows (to be fair, which started later) give us out male bisexual characters (such as Sense8 and Shadowhunters), we might feel that it’s long past the time to be simply hinting at a love which, surely, no longer need dare not speak its name 

In some ways, the space for queer subtext has shrunk. Just compare the 2016 Ben Hur (no subtext) with the 1959 Ben Hur (where Gore Vidal the writer, spoke in The Celluloid Closet, after the event, about deliberately inserting it): 

That’s partly because as the general audience has become (somewhat) more literate at spotting it, this has clearly, in some cases driven it further underground. The silver screen has grasped telling LGBT+ stories which specifically revolve around the sexuality or gender journeys of those characters, but it is still tentative about incidental LGBT+ characters (where their sexuality/ gender identity is not THE story) particularly in relation to central hero characters. 

In the original Star Trek movies, 1-3 in particular (Star Trek: The Motion Picture 1979, Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan 1982, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock 1984) - the Kirk/ Spock subtext is at the core of the story. It was clearly deliberately written into the narrative structure (separation from the beloved, reunion with the beloved, intense sacrifice for the beloved, reunion once more with the beloved). Decker and Ilia in the first movie are Kirk and Spock mirrors and they tell (in “acceptable” heterosexual form on-screen) the same gender love story of Kirk and Spock themselves. 

When it comes to the reboot movies, as the general audience, some thirty + years later, has become better at reading queer subtext (LGBT rights struggles having de-invisibilised us, to an extent) in some ways it has become more difficult to use it (for nervous studios with an eye on global box-office). The reboot movies felt the need to create Spock/ Nyota to give Spock an emotional center which was not primarily Kirk i.e. to “heterosexualise” the heart of Spock. Nor does Chris Pine look adoringly at Zachary Quinto the way William Shatner looked at Leonard Nimoy. 

Yes, we can now have side-character Sulu as out, gay and married (note, not as single and flirty) but we have LESS space on-screen, apparently, to suggest the core male hero duo Kirk/ Spock are each other’s deepest loves than we did thirty + years ago. Of course, that’s partly the difference between Rodenberry and JJ Abrams - but it’s also a product of the zeitgeist.  

So, it’s fascinating to watch millenial Sherlock viewers dare to believe that unequivocally overt Johnlock is possible and is coming. An elaborate and clearly deliberate subtext supports a queer reading, no doubt, but will that break cover unequivocally for the general audience? That is the question.

Xena and Gabrielle in Xena: Warrior Princess (1995-2001) almost came out (the subtext floated closer and closer to the surface) but never quite. Willow in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003) was introduced to us with a crush on a guy friend, then with a boyfriend, then she fell in love with a girl later. In both cases, we know that the creatives had to negotiate these relationships delicately with their networks in the 1990s. Now, we’ve got many side (although not main) LGB characters on television (and a few trans characters, such as in Orange is the New Black, Sense8 and Transparent) although there is still a distressing tendency to kill them off (Charlie in Supernatural, Lexa in The 100 being recent examples). 

But - an out Sherlock/ John love story really would be a first (on-screen - it’s been done in book form already). Two literary hero characters, so embedded in the canon, Victorian in origin to boot, in an adaptation loved around the world? Yes, that would count as ground-breaking.

Good luck TJLC! 

I want to believe.      


Looks fun to me, but I’ve noticed something…

Star Trek: The Motion Picture - Huge advanced ship on its way to destroy Earth. Star Trek -  Huge advanced ship on its way to destroy Earth.

Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan - KHAAAAAAAN! Star Trek Into Darkness -  KHAAAAAAAN!

Star Trek 3: The Search for Spock - Enterprise destroyed. Star Trek Beyond - Enterprise destroyed

I’m just wondering how they’ll fit whales into the next one.
