100 things you may not have known about Star Trek:
001. With appearances as a regular in eleven total seasons (seven in The Next Generation and four in Deep Space Nine) and four films, Worf, played by Michael Dorn, holds the record by far for the most appearances in the Star Trek franchise. Originally, Worf was conceptualized as a minor recurring character for the first seven episodes of The Next Generation as a temporary “Klingon Marine” aboard the Enterprise, but the “presence” Michael Dorn brought to the character in the pilot episode impressed producers so much that they decided to make him a regular.
it’s because michael dorn is THE klingon. his presence and acting style redefined the entire species. it wasn’t the ridges that changed the klingons…it was dorn.
michael dorn is the klingon
marc alaimo is the cardassian
armin shimmerman is the ferengi
michelle forbes is the bajoran
other actors play other members of the species, but these are the actors who really defined the culture, the people, the bodies and the physical presence.
Majel passes away and what does Abrams do to her most well-known character?
Apparently she isn’t important enough for Kirk to remember her name, but goddamn let’s shove her character in here in reference just so we can spit on the Original show and creator some more
# I’m honestly crying at the level of blatant cruelty Abrams shows god I’m thankful Majel isn’t here to see this I’m so thankful she and Gene didn’t have to see how horribly their message has been warped
Nurse Chapel is a beloved [Trek] character,” says Orci. “Even before the first movie came out, a lot of online chatter was, ‘Is Nurse Chapel gonna be there?!’”
Alas, although we hear Dr. McCoy (Karl Urban) say “Nurse Chapel” in 2009’s Star Trek, we never officially saw Christine Chapel — and she’s still MIA in Into Darkness. Instead, Carol Marcus tells Kirk that she learned of his reputation as a ladies man from her friend Christine Chapel, who has become a nurse since her romantic encounter with him — which he does not recall.
“We just figured that would be a great reference, and we loved that Kirk didn’t remember her,” says Orci. “It’s an in-joke that also speaks volumes about his character when it comes to women. That’s why we used it.”
So will Nurse Chapel ever actually make a flesh-and-blood appearance on the Enterprise? Orci just laughs. “That’s certainly possible!

All I have to say about this is:
#the misogyny is so fucking palpable im going 2 throw up #you had the opportinity to introduce another female character #(having more than 2 is too much for you maybe???????) #but nooo #you had to be gross and write her off as just another conquest in kirk’s book #HILARIOUS AM I RIGHT!!!! #women are dispensable!!!!! #and not only the fucking blatant misogyny you also seem to not understand kirk’s character #like apparently for these dudes sleeping around = being a sleazy douchebag #which???? no?????????#people who have a lot of sex maybe do b/c…they enjoy sex??????? #wow revolutionary i know #anyway god im just so angry about this
i feel like the most appropriate response to this quote is an apathetic scream of frustration
HEY BOB ORCI COULD YOU MAYBE STOP
TNG is a show about people going out of their way to make captain picard as uncomfortable as possible
Star Trek: The Middle School Musical
Gonna quickly throw in an epic quote I found on this article.
KJKJ: Gene Roddenberry, with balls of brass, got up on national tv and said, “hey people, if a geneticist took all the best DNA from planet Earth and put it together to make the best human the world has ever seen - he wouldn’t be a white guy.”
This is why I find the casting of a white actor in this role to be so repugnant. They are not whitewashing an Asian role, they are saying that the best genetic material that the entirety of this world and it’s diversity has to offer….still comes from a white guy.

Ah, Garak & Ziyal. I love how he’s like so into her and happy that they kissed, and then at the end he’s all… oh, fuck.
