what about all the other ships in starfleet

The newest 'Star Trek' captain: Jason Isaacs
Lucius Malfoy is about to boldly go where no one has gone before.

British actor Jason Isaacs, perhaps best known in America for playing Draco’s dad in the Harry Potter franchise, has signed on to play Starfleet’s newest captain in CBS All Access’ upcoming Star Trek Discovery.

All we know so far about Isaacs’ character is his name: Captain Lorca. Oh, and we know what his chair will look like.

The cast also includes The Walking Dead’s Sonequa Martin-Green as Lorca’s second in command and 30 Rock’s Maulik Pancholy as a Starfleet medical officer. Other roles include Terry Serpico (Army Wives) as a high-ranking Starfleet admiral, Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) as another captain and Mary Wiseman (Baskets) as a cadet who will be assigned to Lorca’s ship, the USS Discovery, after graduation.

I can’t decide which Star Trek headcanon I like better:


1) Every ship in Starfleet runs into just as much space trouble as the Enterprise (and other main character ships), to the point where it becomes nonchalant

“Hey Susan, how was your time on the Victory?”

“Oh, it was awful. We got sucked into an interdimensional rift for 3 weeks! Uhg, it was terrible. What about you?”

“Yeah, our ship entered a nebula, and then gravity reversed direction, so everything repelled everything else. It was so tedious, pushing buttons was hard, because you would be repelled away from your station panel. Glad that nonsense is over.”


2) Only the main character ships experience weird space anomalies.

“Hey, how was your assignment on the Constitution?”

“We charted some stellar nurseries and did some geological surveys. One time, we had a little conflict with the Romulans, but it never escalated to a fight. What about you?”

“My mission was pretty boring. But have you heard about Fred? He got assigned to the Enterprise! He was telling me about how they encountered an omniscient space cloud and that they faced “space bullshit” as he called it, every other week. He says he’s lucky to be alive.” 


Like, other starships occasionally have a battle, but none of them encounter these weird space anomalies, or travel through time, or meet omniscient beings, or anything weird like that. It’s literally only the various Enterprise ships, Deep Space 9 and Voyager. That’s it. Every other ship in all of Starfleet is pretty much boring.

anonymous asked:

what is the cutest thing about old married spirk in your opinion?? :3

This is the most difficult question anyone has ever asked me because I can’t say what I want to… which is “everything.”

What makes OMS special is how they’re still so in sync with each other after all of the years they spent together. From what we could see in the movies, they still flirt, share smiles, have crazy amounts of eyesex, care deeply about each other, consider that the other is worth more than his soul, go out of their way to save and/or protect the other even when that means breaking Starfleet regulation or going aboard an enemy Klingon ship to make sure t’hy’la isn’t killed by “friendly fire,” argue, talk privately, vacation together, choose to pair up on away missions, and so on… Nothing’s ever changed since TOS.

Usually, marriages that last years are the brunt of shitty humor on tv. It’s always some incarnation of the nagging wife and the irritated husband who only want to argue with each other. OMS breaks this ridiculous stereotype and gives us a real look at what love is like for two people who grow old together in harmony.

What I love most is actually their love because it’s so real. Like all healthy relationships, it’s simultaneously special and ordinary at the same time and that’s what makes it magical. The relationship itself works so perfectly for K/S specifically, but it could be one that any two people who really adore each other share.

phene-thyla-mine made this post that I loved so much, so I’m going to quote a line from it: “I love that we still love them just as much (if not more) as old men with expanding waistlines, wrinkles, and thinning hair.”

We have two characters who share a very real love that only grows stronger as the years go by, despite the trouble they run into and the ravages of time. It’s wonderful, whether you think they romantically belong together or not.

But, after saying all of that, you asked me for the cutest thing about them?

How

could

I

ever

choose

just

one?

Okay fine. This quote from TWOK:

Spock: Jim, be careful.
McCoy: WE will.
