Assimilation of a Vulcan into the Borg is not unheard of, and it seems that everyone’s favorite half-Vulcan, Mr. Spock, will soon be added to that very exclusive list. The logic of Vulcans, while often dubbed as inhumane by the likes of Dr. Leonard McCoy and others, is no match for the cold, hard disdain for individuality of the Borg’s hive mind. Spock will be assimilated in the near future of Star Trek: Boldly Go, but we have hope for a (mostly) full recovery.

A January cover for the Star Trek: Boldy Go comic series features an assimilated Spock. Historically, the Borg have been known to ignore smaller groups of people and individuals. They’re looking to assimilate the masses: entire starship crews, cities, planets, etc.

So, the precedent is there, and it’s terrifying. The new cover isn’t just a warning of what could be, it’s a prediction for what will happen inside the issue’s 32 pages. But, luckily, the precedent for Star Fleet officers assimilated by the Borg also leads us to believe that Spock will be freed from their grasp (but also haunted for quite a while afterward).

Star Trek: Boldy Go #4 arrives in January.


***giveaway is now closed***

It’s been THREE YEARS since I opened my etsy shop to boldly hold, and in honor of that I am having a quilt giveaway! (my last quilt giveaway)

There will be ONE prize: One custom quilt made by me for you! I’ll give you the fabric options; you’ll select the one you like, as well as over all design and I’ll make a quilt just for you!  Awesome right? You will have the option of Star Trek theme or a ‘plain’ quilt.

To enter you are allowed ONE REBLOG and ONE LIKE per day. Each note gets you one entry and I’ll use a random number generator to pick the winner. (I’m not responsible for any tumblr fuckary i.e. lost reblog’s or likes.)

You do not have to follow me to enter- however, when I select your name, if I see that you’re following me, you’ll get several more options in fabric and design of the quilt.

The giveaway will close on Sunday February 14th 2016 at 9PM PST. The winner will be tagged in a post and I’ll also send an ask, so be sure yours is open. The winner will have 24 hours to respond to the message. If I don’t receive a response within 24 hours, I will select another recipient.

Good luck!
