Lord if I know.
matthew looks so reminiscent of aidan turner in this picture it’s weirding me out????
hey every fandom ever lets stop using the same 3 quotes over and over again
books have like 45000 sentences pick another one come on u can do it
#I AM SELFISH I AM BRAVE I AM UNCREATIVE #AND IN THAT MOMENT I SWEAR GO FUCK URSELF #WANT A SUGAR CUBE?? NO #I WAS A DRIZZLE AND SHE WAS AN OVERUSED QUOTE #IT WOULD BE A PLEASURE TO HAVE MY HEART BROKEN BY UR LACK OF CREATIVITY
newsflash if the world was a scale it would not be evenly balanced between privileged and unprivileged
and thus you can’t say that the unprivileged acting on the privileged has the same effect as the privileged acting on the unprivileged
because the world isn’t equal
the world WON’T be equal
In all seriousness though -
Star Trek is more than a fandom. It is a philosophy.
It’s the belief in a better and brighter future for humanity.
It’s about building up from a horrific past of a war-torn world to create a beautiful future in which hunger and poverty no longer exists.
It’s about unity - making friends and alliances across the galaxy with a diverse set of cultures, from human to Klingon to Cardassian.
It’s about recognizing the value of life even when it looks so different from anything we know - silcon-based, artificial intelligence, etc.
And it’s about being the best person you can ever possibly be.
It’s about learning Latin when you’re in the Academy to be an Engineer.
It’s about keeping up with the humanities while you’re surrounded by the most advanced science we can conceive.
It’s about striving to be something greater, something perhaps it would be impossible for you to ever obtain, because it’s the journey that’s more important than the destination.
It’s about progress - in equal parts scientific and humanitarian.
Star Trek isn’t just about the characters or the plot; what makes Star Trek what it is is the driving philosophy behind it, Roddenberry’s vision.
Most fans I see love Star Trek as much for the philosophy as for anything else. And for those who take the philosophy to heart, it becomes a lifestyle. A lifestyle of progress, growth, and endless possibilities.
