The Journey Begins
Me: A mid-twenties female who has never seen any Star Trek episode or movie. I have loved a number of other space/sci-fi shows, including Star Wars, The X-Files, Stargate SG-1, and Firefly. But for some reason, I always resisted watching Star Trek. It didn’t look interesting to me at ALL. But this past weekend, all that changed. I went to see the new Star Trek movie, and I LOVED it. It was hugely entertaining, visually engaging, fast-paced, and funny. Of course, my favorite aspect of the film was the power struggle between Kirk & Spock. Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto had a great on-screen chemistry. I found Quinto’s portrayal of Spock to be particularly intriguing…and he’s HOT!! I walked away from the film totally Hot4Spock. Thus, I created this blog. I want to see more Star Trek and more Spock. My mission: To watch all Spock-related Star Trek, starting with the first episode of the original series, and to seek out particularly adorable/funny/interesting Spock moments. As someone who’s always been a fan of deep partner relationships on TV, and who likes some slash fanfic now & then, I’ll also be looking for moments of friendship between Kirk & Spock, as well as moments that can be inappropriately construed as more than friendship. 😉 For any new trekkies or fellow Spock-lovers, I welcome your comments!
