star trek aus

I saw a bunch of posts for your OTP in aus so I thought I’d make a star trek specific one

  • students/professors at starfleet academy au
  • somehow we both ended up in the 20th century au
  • person a is a janitor at starfleet academy/earth spacedock and person b is a student/crewperson discussing new theories of warp drive when person a refutes their argument and so begins one of the most well-known arguments of the academy/spacedock, where people are crowding around listening to the different theories go back and forth
  • somehow person a has led a underdeveloped society to believe they are a god and person b has to help stop the violation of the prime directive but somehow ends up violating it more (ahaha as if thats hard)
  • person a is a ensign on one starship and person b an ensign on another. the ships are rivals in everything and eventually both persons have to team against each other in a competition to see whose ship is better.
  • “oh hi how are you enjoying risa?” au
  • “you’re the only person who speaks klingon, english, vulcan and andorii and our universal translators just broke down and i need your help translating this huge diplomatic meeting” au
  • “somehow both of us got kidnapped by orions and now we need to escape together.” au
  • person a works on nx01 in engineering and person b (and c+) work on jupiter station and they were going to go out on a date when enterprise came back for torpedo upgrades but now the chief engineer and tactical officer have decided to pull double shifts so we dont have to go back and we’re pretty annoyed au
  • person a is a romulan and person b is a federation officer but come across each other through an anonymous pen pals service run by a neutral ally but now person a and person b want to meet up au
  • “i saw you checking me out when i was wearing those red exercise leggings and now i want to know your name” au
  • person a is a senior bridge officer and person b is an ensign who occasionally play 3D chess together in the mess hall au
  • person a keeps ripping their uniform and person b is the ships very exasperated tailor au
  • “we both got trapped in the holodeck when we decided to play out an early 21st century film but now the holodeck has made the program a romantic scene complete with roses, wine, and everything from the early 20th century romance films.” au

I was wearing my TNG hoodie as I walked into work and a colleague said “nice jacket”. Got excited he was a Trekkie but apparently he just thought the colour was “out there”. What a disappointment.

Llin, there are so many Tasha friendships in the Trek Friendship Fest and it makes me so happy, yet sad at the same time, cause I keep thinking of like, Commander Yar in a First Contact era uniform with an undercut hairstyle (it would suit her so well!!) wielding a phaser rifle. Commander Yar who got seven years of character development and friendships and relationships and whyyy Llin whyyyy didn't we get that? D;

OH MY GOD RIA?!?! *cries about it*

Ugh seriously that would have been so incredible, there were so many places they could have taken her character, and I’m rewatching a lot of S1 at the moment and I’m seeing the seeds of what could have been and it just makes me SO SAD.

I honestly think if I somehow had the power to look into another parallel universe and I could only pick one, I would pick the one where this happened and go and download all the episodes and bring them back.

(Also someone please make that Commander Yar fanart so that I can cry about it even more.)

one of my favorite things in all of star trek is how in some episode of TNG they show future wesley and he’s super ripped and huge and basically looks like he-man but today wil wheaton looks exactly like he did 30 years ago except with a receding hairline and a shitty beard

“Gilgamesh, a king. At Uruk. He tormented his subjects. He made them angry. They cried out aloud, "Send us a companion for our king! Spare us from his madness!” Enkidu, a wild man… from the forest, entered the city. They fought in the temple. They fought in the streets. Gilgamesh defeated Enkidu. They became great friends. Gilgamesh and Enkidu at Uruk. 
The… the new friends went out into the desert together, where the Great Bull of Heaven was killing men by the hundreds. Enkidu caught the Bull by the tail. Gilgamesh struck him with his sword. 
They were… victorious. But… Enkidu fell to the ground, struck down by the gods. And Gilgamesh… wept bitter tears, saying, “He who was my companion, through adventure and hardship, is gone forever."
