Where No Women Have Gone Before

Fandom. Feminism. Occasional Swears.

Star Trek speaks to some basic human needs, that there is a tomorrow - it’s not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb. This is the human adventure. It’s just begun.

When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett [Johansson] does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to.

Dreamboat, check, awesome human being, check.

Seth MacFarlane on Gene Roddenberry: Hall of Fame 2010

"Now how many science fiction franchises are so well-founded that they could tell a purely character based story with no pyrotechnics. Gene knew Star Trek was not about the space battles the special effects, the action - anybody could do that. It was about the people, and the ideas. Some of the best star trek installments looked like they cost a nickel. They did comedy beautifully - maybe you'd remember Leonard Nimoy got the job directing "Three Men And A Baby" because of Star Trek V. Also not to be undervalued is that Gene's shows took science seriously and as a result Roddenberry left his mark on generations of scientist, physicians and astronauts who credit star trek as the reason they entered their professions. Roddenberry's vision of the future literally shaped our presen" (x)

Intolerance in the 23rd century? Improbable! If man survives that long, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life’s exciting variety, not something to fear. It’s a manifestation of the greatness that God, or whatever it is, gave us. This infinite variation and delight, this is part of the optimism we built into Star Trek.

—Gene Roddenberry, in The Making of Star Trek (1968)

No, James T. Kirk is NOT Like George W. Bush, Orci
And, yet again, I’ve read a comment by Orci that makes me want to hurl.
"You can make the case that Kirk is very (George W.) Bush-like," Orci said.
Source: X 
No.  STOP.  Kirk ALWAYS accepted responsibility for his crew and OWNED UP to his mistakes.
And there’s just a tad bit of a difference between Kirk’s inexperience as a Captain and the impulsivity of youth compared to George W. Bush’s MONUMENTAL clusterfuck of a presidency, Orci — you absolute tool.
Why are these people writing Star Trek?  Why?

 
he said that. he actually said that. that is a thing he said. bush-like. bushf like-  buSH  LI KE….. BBBB UUSU HHH FLIKEK EEE .W.A.E3!?@?!!!?!!?!!!?!???!!?!?!

WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT??????????????????
 HDJLADFLSEthjfol;sjdfl M…. WHAT???


I’m very confused by this because on the one hand, Orci is apparently a “9/11 truther”, but on the other hand, he considers GWB to be “one of his beloved heroes”? Orci I’m just so confused.
