~10 h, I think? I don’t think I’ve ever stared into a man’s eyes for so long - plus in this case it was mostly about “why does your eyelid has to have such a weird shape?!” kind of staring. Still… damn, this looks pretty good, doesn’t it?

Dear All of Science Fiction Fandom:

September 8 is fast approaching. Many of us know full well the importance of that date. I wonder, can we get all of fandom to just take a moment on that day –September 8, 2016– to stand quietly, raise your glass to the heavens, and simply say:

“Thank you, Ms. Ball.”

I feel like a common Star Trek question is “who’s your favorite captain?” but I’ve always been more interested in who people’s favorite chief engineer is. I feel like the engineers are always, not only extremely skilled, but also very likable characters… and for me personally it’s much harder to choose a favorite engineer than it is to choose a favorite captain. So, if you would, reblog this and tag your favorite chief engineer.

Commander Riker from Star Trek: The Next Generation has many obvious character traits, such as playing the trombone, being successful with the ladies, and having a beard. There’s one crucial part of his personality you may have missed, though: He sits down like a maniac. Instead of lowering himself into a chair, the way most human beings do, he swings his gargantuan legs over the top of the chair, mounting it like it’s a Shetland pony. He even gets up in the same fashion.

While the in-universe explanation may be a side effect of some kind of salt vampire STD or whatever, the real-life reason is reportedly that actor Jonathan Frakes suffered a back injury in his youth. This would also explain why Riker is constantly leaning on things and resting his leg, even when it means awkwardly positioning his junk inches away from Data’s face.
