I just came across this phrase in the book I’m reading for class:
“Kate Mulgrew as the captain of Voyager in Deep Space Nine.”
DEEP SPACE NINE
DEEP SPACE NINE
The poll is on the front page of startrek.com, on the right hand side, just scroll down a little.
…Cause if they skip DS9 now, they’ll skip it forever.
DS9 needs to be done next. Each show needs to be done in it’s release order. Otherwise, a cluster of fans will get the shaft.
They’ve done TOS. Now TNG. DS9 must be next. Then VGR. Then and only then ENT.
DS9 first, folks. Or the Niners will get the perma-shaft. Cause we always have!
I wish tumblr would spend the amount of effort psychoanalyzing Gul Dukat that it spends on Loki.
Dukat has long since passed any chance of moral redemption from episode one of Deep Space Nine. And even though we know he has no chance of being a good man, we spend entire episodes following him. We sympathize with him, we cry for him, we even root for him occasionally. We can’t even explain it, because even at his best he’s a huge threat to the protagonists. But he’s a truly terrible man who is very difficult not to love.
Dukat is one of my favourite tragic villains because, in the bad man, you can see the wreckage of the good man, and the tug of his surviving good impulses, which will never be strong enough to draw him back from his desperate need for power and approval.
IDK The series finale is pretty sad as far as Dukat goes.
Sacrifice of Angels?? SOOO FUCKING SAD.
I stumbled upon some Star Trek magazines with poster inserts, and decided to pass on some of the fun to my Tumblr friends! Everybody needs a Star Trek poster on their bedroom wall. :)
I’ll randomly pick at least 2 winners to get a double-sided poster! First winner I choose picks first, and so…
“I thought it was important that we tell the story honestly and truthfully about love… And so it was not about sex, or same-gender or any of the above. Even though, obviously, in our world, that’s what people start to look at… It was so important for me to tell that story honestly and truthfully, especially with the people who have suffered, in our world, needlessly, because of love.” - Avery Brooks, on the DS9 episode “Rejoined”

Dax: In the end, all that matters is how we feel and what we do about it, because either way, we’re the ones who have to live with the consequences.
Kahn: That’s the tricky part though, isn’t it? Living with the consequences.
