Summary: It’s almost First Contact Day and love is all around—volatile, fragile, unpredictable. For President Janeway, love looks like her handsome new assistant. For Jim Kirk, the heartbroken playwright, love has beautiful brown eyes and speaks a different language. For Julian, for Harry, for Q; love is complicated… but ultimately worth it.

Quark and rom try to be ‘good ferengi’ and they both think they fail for different reasons But they actually succeed because they always strive for the best for ferenginar (quark said once that the grand nagus should only lead by his greed If it’s in the people’s best interest. So personal greed doesn’t matter as much as what’s best collectively.)
Worf tries to be a ‘good Klingon’ and sometimes he thinks he failed But he he actually succeeded because he always strives to be honorable, toward his Starfleet uniform or his more traditional klingon roots. He puts the honor of all of Kronos above how people happen to view him, which makes him more honorable than many klingons.
Data tries to be human and thinks he fails But he actually succeeds because in his striving toward a larger goal and in his unconditional love of humanity and his curiosity he actually is a better man than many flesh and blood people.
It’s in the trying that these characters succeed. And maybe they’re not the most traditional of their respective cultures/species, but in the end they are already who they want to be.

Star Trek ships are really just:
Kirk: I'm gonna do the thing
Spock: please do not do the thing.
Q: I'm gonna do ALL the things!
Picard: fine, just please leave us alone.
Data: Geordi, I am going to attempt a thing.
Geordi: sounds like fun Data, mind if I join you?
Garak: I'm going to do a thing my dear.
Bashir: Garak, what is the thing???
Quark: I'm gonna do the thing!
Odo: Quaaark, if I catch you doing the thing you're going to a have a nice long stay in a holding cell.

Making my little sister identify random Star Trek characters:
“If the computer ever doesn’t work, he sticks his finger in the socket and becomes the computer.”
“He hasn’t been outside in like, 80 years.”
“He cuts his own hair.”
“He’s Captain Kirk’s father.”
“He comes onto the ship only for parent observation day, and he enjoys a good doughnut.”
“He chose his name based on the color of his shirt. When you join the space, they let you pick a new name.”
“He works in the cafeteria, but everybody hates it because he only serves bananas.”
(This child has watched the original series. I don’t understand.)
“She used to be a nun, but she liked the space life instead, so she quit the sisterhood and joined the space.”
“White Bread cuts her hair too, with computer-like precision.”
“She hosts the ship’s karaoke party every Friday, and always opens with ‘My Heart Will Go On’.”
“He’s the head of weapons” (said after I insisted that the ship has to have people with practical skills and not just party organizers.)
“When he joined, everyone thought he was so pretty they put his picture up everywhere.”
“He studies aliens but only the little ones.”
“They rescued Winkle from a bacon farm.”
“They give him a spray tan when he feels sad.”
“His job on the ship is he’s an emotional support animal, but he’s also a man.”
“What’s on her head?”
“Okay she studies space bugs, but when she flies around in space her visit only covers part of her face, so there’s bug debris.”
“She doesn’t like Winkle because he’s not a bug.”
“First name: He. Last name: Hears”
“He’s the professional ‘spakeup artist’ (space makeup artist). His job is to make them all look good.”
“Ears are in style right now.”
“His eyeshadow is on fleek.”
“Just an ordinary man.”
“His part-time job is fixing the ship’s engines. His full-time job is being a footrest. He sits down and lets people rest their feet on him.”
“They’re not sure he’s human but don’t question him because he might have a deeper power.”
“He’s in charge of alien communications because he speaks a bunch of languages, but he only knows how to lie.”
“He has no eyes, only lies. That’s his motto. ‘All lies, no eyes’.”
