Me: A 30-year-old female who’s love for Star Trek: The Original Series was ignited by the 2009 reboot film. I started this blog right after that film with the intention of quickly working through TOS episode-by-episode, but I got stalled around episode 20. Now that I’ve seen Star Trek: Into Darkness (which I love love LOVED), my passion for the characters of Kirk and Spock has intensely resurfaced, and I’m hoping to finish my journey through Star Trek! As a K/S shipper, my main goal is to find all of those adorable, delightfully stomach-flipping moments of friendship (or more??) between the two. I’m also keeping track of all of Spock’s Vulcan nerve pinches, mind melds, and salutes.
I am mainly writing this blog for myself, because I see a long future of Star Trek fandom ahead of me, and it’s simply fun to keep track of all of my favorite moments. If you happen to feel similarly about Spock’s hotness, please comment!
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 construed as more than friendship. For any new trekkies or fellow Spock-lovers, I welcome your comments!
This is a personal blog not in any way affiliated with the creators, actors, or producers of Star Trek. I am using some screen captures from Star Trek: The Original Series to illustrate my newfound love for the show and for the character Spock. I took all of the screen captures myself. I am not making any profit from the use of these names or images and simply wish to communicate my appreciation for the show with other trekkies. I hope to bring some new fans to Star Trek!
