Ferengi Sonnets Pt 1 and Pt 2 - Joe Gallenstein - day 6
It is a truth that is universal
That when a Ferengi looks for a wife
He is looking for a spouse
To not just care for his physical house
But that expands his opportunities for Latinum
Someone that helps his fortune reach its maximum
But misfortune comes to the Ferengi who ignores women
For the future is on its way
It won’t be long before Ferengi ladies will have their say
A male heir to the fortune was once a businessman’s goal
But what about if the son’s enterprise was hopeless?
Any child could be talented, or even taught, in the ways of business
Why would forward looking figures look away
And the emerging power of women is here to stay
Because courting you is a dangerous game
For my heart is my most valuable possession
And Rule Zero of The Rules of Acquisition state
That If Grand Nagus tells us it must be so
And Rule Two makes clear that Money is Everything
So you must be money made flesh
For to me you now are everything.
Rule One says Once You Have Their Money
You Never Give it Back
Your heart is the fortune
That I have spent my life searching
Rule Ten says Greed is Eternal
And so we come to my proposal
Will you do business with me for all our tomorrows?

I have gotta stop watching star trek tos because a) I get aucked in immediatly and nearly crashed my car when I was thinking about the pilot episode again and b) many of the episodes offend me on, just, so many levels. Also c) I guess which is that I have been meaning to you know. Watch star trek that isnt tos and also now I'm thinking about it d) I am so insanely busy with work at the moment and for the foreseeable future I dont really have time
HOWEVER I am not going to take my own advice and i think we will all be very lucky if i dont end up writing some huge, shit mcspirk fic covering all 3 seasons
i got tagged by @stardateunknown to post a screenshot of my lock screen, last song i listened to, and the last photo i saved 🤠
tagging @fatiguedvulcan @deepspacegallifrey @glamtrek and whomstever else wants to :^)

S/o of the main is so small and sweet,a total cutie, right? They constantly lose their voice though and skeles know why. One night they catch them sneaking out really late and either follow then or confront them. Turns out small sweet s/o is in a death metal band and looses their voice because they have awesome vocals but they didn't wanna scare the skeles away because most think metal screaming in unattractive 👀👀👀 Thank you I love you, Ratsoh mwuah 😚
Sans: pfft, that’s the secret you were hiding?? Sure it’s well known that sans can’t stand metal, but he would never hold it against his SO for enjoying or singing it. Plus, he has to admit the death metal growl is impressive. Most humans can’t do that. The only metal band that sans listens to is yours. And only the songs where you Star. Boyfriend loyalty and all that
Star: sure he’s annoyed, but only because you thought you couldn’t tell him this. After the typical “there’s no bed to be afraid to tell me about yourself” lecture, tell SO about the resets you hypocrite, Star will be gushing over your voice! That’s so cool! How long have you been singing? He’s more interested your history than the songs tbh
Honey: dude he’s gobsmacked. Absolutely stunned. You’re such a sweet little thing and you scream on stage about violence???? Why is that so hot-
Red: oh he knew you weren’t just some sweet little innocent. No matter how hard you try to pretend, red knows that gleam in your eye. He found out about the death metal long before you two started dating and let you think he didn’t know because he knew it embarrassed you. It’s the same reason only reds closest friends know about him being a Trekkie. It ruins his bad boy image
Edge: he doesn’t see how this changes anything? You’re still his adorable little prince/princess even if you scream on stage. It is nice to know why your voice keeps going out though. Edge starts looking up all those home remedy solutions for you.
Mal: everyone else thinks you’re sweet and innocent. But mal knows the truth. And he couldn’t love you more for it. Mal lives for that passionate angry spark you get when you preform. On stage and at home~
Cash: what??? You’re a singer? He’s actually a little hurt that you would hide this from him. Cash is the theatre nerd. Metal may not be his music of choice, but he would definitely have supported you in any type really.
Oak: he doesn’t like how you’ve been sneaking around. It makes him feel like you’re taking advantage of his bad memory. And being in a metal band isn’t an excuse. Oaks not gonna flip out and dump you for enjoying music that he doesn’t like. He’s annoyed at the sneaking, not your music tastes
Papyrus/Willow: oh boy. You’ve hit the JACKPOT!! Not only are papyrus and willow huge metal heads, but both of them can SCREAM. Willow especially, his death growl can make a grown man cry. Shoot, they’ll be so excited about finding your talent that they don’t even register the sneaking. Papyrus will absolutely make time to see all your concerts. And willow will definitely show up to several and might even treat your band members occasionally. Both of them are more than happy to help you practice your vocals too if you want!

Tom Paris is someone who doesn't seem like much on paper and arguably as the compulsory straight white guy his presence in the main cast is frustrating but on screen his character...really works!?
Like he has interesting dynamics with basically all of the crew - He is Janeway's rescue project, he and Chakotay have 'history' (and yet respect each other), he has an ongoing romance with B'Elanna, he acts like an emotional foil for Tuvok's cold logic, he basically took Harry under his wing (and taught him to loosen up a little), he and Kes were good friends, he was the first one to give Seven a warm welcome when the rest of the crew were cold to her and he also acts as a foil for her practicality (and she's amused by his antics), he acts as the Doctor's apprentice (and is the butt of his many dry jokes), and lastly, he and Neelix also have a weird bond which they somehow developed through co-parenting an alien. He's even close to Naomi and Samantha Wildman (he's the only one who calls her 'Sam' as far as I remember). Talk about a friendly dude!
He also has a very interesting perspective on the happenings onboard Voyager and adds a unique flavour of sarcastic commentary. Also, he's basically a nerd, kind of a Trekkie in space. That should be annoying and condescending but surprisingly it's not.
I just wish that the writers hadn't pushed him into the 'rebel' archetype that doesn't really work for his character (imo) and instead just let him be the middle-aged dad who works on cars and listens to old rock bands and plays golf that he clearly wanted to be.

I will block someone for not liking Discovery and I will block someone for only liking season 3, but if I had to pick a worse crime it would be only liking season 3. You’re telling me you watched the same 2 seasons that irrevocably changed my personality, turned me into a Trekkie, made me interested in drawing and writing fanfic, helped me bond with a whole subculture of people and make new friends, made my depression actually bearable (and then made it So much worse lol but let’s not talk about that) and you didn’t like them????? I’m suing.

trekkies will argue about whether “the city on the edge of forever” “the best of both worlds” “in the pale moonlight” “mirror, mirror” “q who” “the balance of terror” are the best star trek episodes but have you all considered that it’s actually It’s Only a Paper Moon

9. do you like prequels? 13. do you mind sequels that are completely different with a new plot and new characters or do you prefer they stay with the same story and characters? (inspired by star trek but you choose the fandom)--kanyniablue
Thank you for the ask!
Number 9: I do like prequels, as long as they aren’t drastically reworking the internal history of the show/book/movie etc. in a way that feels out of sync with the established universe or in a way that feels pandering. As an example of the latter in keeping with your suggested topic of Star Trek, I frequently find the tone and subjects of Enterprise irritating/frustrating because it feels like someone worked off a shallow list of “things Trekkies like” and tacked them together without respecting the impact on internal timelines, and instead of actually continuing the larger concepts explored in DS9 and Voyager that engage folks. I have this issue much less with Discovery, despite them including far more timeline and tech changes.
Number 13: I don’t mind at all! Although I do like to have enough of a link that the connection between the two stories is clear. I’m skeptical of things that feel like the sequel is only name-deep, and just done for branding purposes because a publisher/studio was acting skittish about launching a new project.

I can't believe I only stumbled onto the transmasc part of tumblr through the queer trekkie part of tumblr. Couldn't find more than like 5 transmasc blogs when I actually searched for them a year ago and now I'm following so so many that are also star trek blogs

My review of Nemesis
• this is gonna be a long post because I wanted to hide spoilers and didn’t feel like hiding a bunch of posts (Also friends recall I’ve only seen TNG and its movies so if you wanna comment or something plz don’t spoil)
• I knew it was coming. I KNEW it was coming. And it still hit me harder than a brick. I cried. So much.
• His death??? I was expecting it to be agonizing. And it wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, it was awful, but it just blew up and then we got a few words? I feel like it could have been wrapped up better.
• I will say I’ve never felt like a Trekkie until everyone raised their glasses to him. It hurt.
• I know you have to take TNG movies as tng movies because : they’re not the series. They have to make money in theaters and make the movies good enough for those who didn’t watch the series. It wasn’t a bad movie. It was a good movie honestly. Just not really TNG. That’s why insurrection is my favorite tng movie because it’s like the show: some new alien race has a problem they fix and they have a little fun and no one gets hurt. The problems I have with nemesis are the same problems I have with first contact. Too much action. That’s not TNG style honestly. I mean, why did Data die?? That’s not tng style at all. The movie had too much going on to cram an entire data arc + death in. And that’s why the movies don’t work for me. They try to do too much and lots of stuff gets pushed aside. If they didn’t have enough time to further develop the characters, they should have left them as is. You know?
• Worf’s comment on the romulans was really sweet. It made me smile. This was the only time I smiled I think. (and we won’t get into the rant on why I think Worf deserved more screen time in the movies, I’ll save that for another post)
• B4 was absolutely adorable. Although I really wish data were back, I like how they didn’t replace data with b4. I really liked how they acknowledged he was a person too and didn’t try to turn him into data.
• So it was a good movie. Unfortunately not canonnnn🤩🥰💕🌺✨😚✌️☀️💯
• oh yeah one more thing- Mr. Spiner will be performing blue skies at my wedding.

Ennnn - I'm The One And Only Dominator - SoundCloud
Listen to Ennnn - I'm The One And Only Dominator by TREKKIE TRAX on #SoundCloud
Girl Gang #lollypop500joules 🖤
Hi! I prefer to go by Jamie, my pronouns are she/her, I am bi, and I am an adult in college. I'm listing the fandoms I post on below in order of how often I post about them:
2. Star Wars
3. Star Trek (pls forgive me Trekkies)
4. My Hero Academia (I promise I'm not a raging gatekeeping fan you do you in the fandom so long as it's not p*d*phil*c. )
5. The Legend of Zelda
6. Harry Potter
7. The 100
I'll add more fandoms as I think of others. I love talking about fandoms, especially Marvel since it is was the first really big fandom I got into on my own as a kid. I am a bit of an encyclopedia when it comes to the MCU. My only request is that we all stay civil and kind, most MCU arguments do not need to get heated (there are occasions where it should and most of the time its related to representation). I hope you enjoy my blog!

I don't know if you knew this, but Connor Trinneer, who plays Charles 'Trip' Tucker III in Enterpise is in Minimal Loss, and I don't often watch Star Trek, only when I'm back with my family and my step dad has it on TV, but when I saw him I literally freaked out! I love Trip and I was like, FINALLY a, actor I like isn't playing an unsub!
YES! I love him in that one! And I LOVELOVELOVE that he is not an unsub! That episode isn’t one of my favorites, but I do love that Joel Murray and Connor Trinneer are in it. Trip is one of my favorite ST characters of all, he’s just pure sweet fun. I love you for mentioning it! <3 (I know, it’s not cool for Trekkies to like Enterprise but I love Scott Bakula and I love that show.)

That episode is SO hard to watch. Tbh, any episode with kid unsubs is hard to watch for me. But yeah, every time I watch an episode with a Star Trek actor, I find myself hoping they'll let Reid be the nerdy Trekkie we know he is, or at the very least, put in a little Star Trek reference. I know Garcia makes one to being "redshirt ensign-level doomed", but I think a few meta jokes would have been fun.
Yes, the kid ones are so hard. That episode is probably, out of all of them, the hardest for me. I remember watching it for the first time and just being sick to my stomach.
They do not make nearly enough of those fun Trekkie jokes to make the episodes where Trek actors are unsubs comfortable for us. Yeah, the pedo ones are the worst. Odo and Crusher are a bummer but Phlox and Riker are soul crushing and disgusting and I LOVE Enterprise and Phlox is my favorite doctor (outside of Bones) and I cannot watch him with the same joy I once did.
I am a GIANT nerd (if that wasn’t obvious) and live for the Trek and Dr. Who references, but I feel like Trek gets the shaft. We see awful horrendous Trek unsubs and we see sweet Dr. Who refs (like when Garcia and Reid are at the con at the end of season 7, or Garcia brings in Daleks and 10 & 11 action figures for Reid after he got shot at the end of Season 9 - happy bday to David Tennat btw) and I find myself wishing there were more slight Trek refs. Like why did no writer, in all of the 11 seasons Morgan was on, ever have Reid mention that Hotch & Morgan were basically Kirk & Spock, only maybe the smarter version because they didn’t always go on the danger missions together. I have talked ad nauseum to my husband about the parallels and the way the writers could have really made it fun and now I’ve info dumped onto you and I apologize.

I'm so glad somebody else thinks about Riker in that one episode! Like, whenever i watch it, it's the only thing I can focus on. That's also how I feel about the episodes with the actors who play Wesley Crusher and Odo.
ME TOO! Star Trek fans unite! It’s awful. Wesley Crusher killed me. And the one where Doctor Phlox (from Enterprise) is a pedo (probably the hardest ep for me to watch of all, A Shade of Gray 4x21). Why do they have to do such awful things to Trekkies? What did we do to those writers?

This time last year Doctor Who was my only sci-fi fandom, but thanks to the timey wimeyness of 2020, I am glad to call myself a Trekkie as well as a Whovian.
Who Trek lives!￼￼

i'm feeling very squishy about fandom tonight. just finished a book club meeting, and the three of us left on the call have all been in many fandom spaces over the years. we've obviously gotten to know each other through reading books together, but the conversation after the book discussion is always more personal and more bonding to me. anyway, the conversation devolved into us giggling about fan fic and then planning to read a fic together and drink related cocktails on our off-weeks for the book club.
and then being on livejournal, then tumblr and then discord, and finding community in these spaces is still mind-blowing to me. i can yell about a tv show and lots of people will yell back to me about it.
i helped install a display of star trek memorabilia one summer - a fellow staff member was a huge trekkie and offered her stuff to display for the 50th anniversary of TOS. i talked with her about attending conventions and sending and receiving 'zines back in the day, and i felt that almost legacy connection between hers and my fandom experiences. i also got to hold a bound kirk/spock fic which also felt very surreal. i'd only heard tell of these works and it was something else to see it lovingly bound and displayed.
it can be tough being in fandom some days, too, and i know i've opted out at times myself. take care of yourself and come to fandom the amount you can handle. but goodness, when fandom is good, it's good.
