Once again, an Idea from @crazyfanatic97 :D one more to do :D I’ve been listening to “No” by Meghan Trainor on an endless loop and its MY FAVORITE SONG RIGHT NOW <3 !!! So why not dance to it XD Waking up in Section 13 to get coffee and a certain rookie archaeologist tries to sneak up on me XD I AM USED TO MEN TRYING TO SNEAK UP ON ME! ASK PROWL XD!!! Also, Dark Chi Warrior! Me :3. Will put in details later when i muster up the story ;n;
You know the story that Scotty tells to explain how he wound up on Delta Vega, as punishment for testing his transwarp theory on ‘Admiral Archer’s prize beagle’? He talks about being able to beam a ‘lifeform’ right? What if ‘lifeform’ was a technicality?
This little bit of Kelvin timeline canon has been bothering me forever because if Admiral Archer = Jonathan Archer and the prize beagle = Porthos…well, Archer would be what, 145 in 2257? Scotty says he’s been on Delta Vega for six months in February of 2258 which means he was exiled in August of 2257. Even if Archer managed to live that long, it’s unlikely that Porthos would have been able to as well unless the dog was some kind of weird clone of the original Porthos.
We’re never explicitly told what Scotty’s relationship to Archer is though (even if it seems to be fanon that Archer was the ‘instructor’ with whom Scotty had his ‘little debate’.) BUT GUYS.
WHAT IF THE PRIZE BEAGLE WAS A TAXIDERMIED PORTHOS WHO WAS LIKE SOME KIND OF WEIRD RELIC AT THE ACADEMY?
What if Scotty stole stuffed!Porthos and used him as his transwarp guinea pig?
I know that in the IDW comics, they end up getting the (live) beagle back via the transporter on the Enterprise but comics aren’t canon.
If he stole a school relic and used it for his experiment, it would make a lot more sense for him to have been punished the way he was and would make it look a lot less like a petty personal vendetta by a single admiral.
I don’t know. I’m really tired and my brain is doing strange things. Seriously though. What do y’all think?
