While making my cosplay for Otakuthon I'm watching more ST:TNG! Yay!

So: Season 3, episode 1: "Evolution"

Wesley: "Guinan! I didn't think anyone would be here."
Guinan: "I'm not any good at being confined to quarters... as my husbands will attest to."

Season 2, episode 20: "The Emissary"

Wow. Worf and this half-Klingon half-Human woman just had sex, and Worf is like "Now we must marry" and she's like "What? It was just sex, it doesn't mean anything", and my mind is blown.

WHY didn't I watch this when I was 12? Amazing sex-ed, right there.
Also, in the episode just before, Troy's Betazoid mother was all over the place with her sexual energy, trying to get laid by every man on the ship!

WHAT does that tell us about ST:TNG? It's fucking radical, that's what it is.

Alright, so on Monday, I went to see some summertime improv with friends from my university, who are mostly co-activists regarding student rights, and overall a very cool bunch.

My new roommate's girlfriend was there, and we started talking about movies and tv series that her BF is interested in... which led to me asking her if she had watched Star Trek. She said she didn't, and procedeed to ask her BF "Do you think I'd like it?" and he said, quite honestly, "I don't think you would".

Being as I'm enthralled with Star Trek right now, I started talking about some things I love about Star Trek (Guys wearing skirts! Picard talking about his views on death, and the meaning of life! Data trying to learn about what it means to be human!) and quickly realized that I was talking very loudly, and very fast, and making strange arm/hand gestures to emphasize my enthusiasm... And the girl, I think, thought I was probably making no sense at all.

Of course, this is not the first time this has happened to me. I think it's juste the first time that I didn't feel awkward and shy: I just WENT OUT THERE and was SO HAPPY ABOUT IT.

So yeah, I'm glad. Also: I'm still a ST:TNG noob but I'm definitely on that ship.

AND NOOOOW this cute video I saw on Laughing Squid ^_^

Star Trek! TNG! Episode 5!
I'm much too excited for my own good right now.

This episode is starting to get weird, but I think I like it! I interrupted the ep. half-way through to do some commentary while listening.

Homemade summary: a guy from Starfleet (the biggest douchebag you've ever met) comes over to the Enterprise to make some upgrades on the warp drive. He accidentally makes the warp go nuts, and they end up 3 galaxies away, at almost 3 million light-years from where they started. So they're in this weird place, and people start to hallucinate things. That's where I've stopped.

So: I can't get over how I'm unknowledgeable about the whole "warp" thing, so I'm doing some wiki reading to understand better. I had always "believed" the warp scenario, until know, where it seems the whole crew should have died in agony whilst travelling at that speed. After reading, though, I understand how warp works (reading source: )

But I must comment on something: at one point, a crew member hallucinates that he's in a string quartet, and he's playing the violin. But I HATE IT when the playing is off from the music track! I just jumped out of the whole "contrat de lecture", as we call it. So disappointing.

25:50: AWWW Picard just saw his mom, and he was like: "Maman?" and... awwwww

38:50: That dude is totally wearing a dress.
*googles it*
Well, apparently all Starfleet uniforms are unisex, and the dress is called a "Stank", according to:

I love you, Star Trek <3

I watched the pilot to "Star Trek: The Next Generation" with a friend today, and upon deciding that I didn't wanna fan-out on Facebook, I decided to go for full-on fannishness and settle on this so-called "dreamwidth".

(I will refrain on commenting the title of this platform, since it's probably been done, but I only ever visit my dear sister's journal, so I wouldn't know.)

So ST:TNG pilot!

There were very long pauses! A lot of Picard, which is good! My first peek at Q, who, according to formely acknowledged friend, is a very important character, and very interesting though quite self-righteous upon first aquaintance! Wil Wheaton at an impossible age! Sexual tension between Picard and Number One!

But most importantly: space jellyfish, which came out of NOWHERE and totally BLEW ME AWAY.

Still under shock. More soon, with episode two!
