Have achieved Trek. Finally. Also, matinees are fucking expensive.

will make noise about later, except for this....

I read a lot of reviews. A lot. Yet I didn't read this.

No one said Spock is a total bitch This is very important information. Information that makes me happy. I've never seen anyone, anywhere, insert the word fuck, wordlessly, silently, unmistakably, into so many sentences in my life. Totes impressive.

Kinda in love. As one does.

Wow. That was good for me. I need that again.

This Spock is a little bit ANGRY. I'm sure it upsets some TOS fans, but it was so perfect for me.

Oh hell yes. This one is awesome. I am particularly fond of the streak of vindictiveness going on there. Jeez.

I was quite impressed when he made "Live long and prosper" sound like "Jump off a cliff and fucking die". That's skill.

That was beautiful. I was only surprised he did not logically decide to go after Nero with a knife. As one does when one is crazypants.

Seriously. My God. I love this Spock.

I've seen someone's icon - which I love like burning - that has the wording "set phasers to bitchface." And OH MY WORD HOW ACCURATE IT IS. Every single scene, Spock is pondering how to kill you with just his eyebrows, because you are annoying him and choking people is an illogical waste of time.

CRAZYPANTS SPOCK. I mean, and when Spock Prime and New Spock meet, you compare/contrast and think, yeah, this will end well for the Federation's enemies. I do not see this Spock being, y'know, a restraining influence.


trek love all over again OMG!

The moment Spock said "Live long and prosper" like it was really "fuck off and die in a fire" was probably the moment when I started crushing hard on this movie.

The love came when McCoy looked at Kirk and said "I may throw up on you" but then, a) that has to be one of the best introduction lines ever and b) I was always a McCoy girl.

Re: trek love all over again OMG!

I am totally and forever a Kirk girl (as of this movie), but I have to admit, my love is torn when Spock goes to the crazyplace of crazy. It's the eyes. They say "I am thinking of a hundred logical ways to kill you in alphabetical order using one finger and the power of my inner rage.

McCoy was freaking awesome. I just kind of wish he'd kept the beard thing. That just was perfect. WITH HIS HYPOS OF STICKINGNESS. EVERYTIME KIRK TURNED HIS BACK. *howls*

This is like the Crazy!Enterprise. Of Crazy. With so much awesome.

Agreed. the #1 moment in this film is his "live long and prosper" to the vulcan council. it is godlike.

You mean... like THIS???

Spock was AWESOME. I luff him.

live long and go fuck yourselves. :D

*wipes tear* I love Spock.

Agree. Bitch Spock was a revelation (and a bit of a turn on). Funny, just saw it today as well at the discounted $8.50 matinee.

It is insane what the word discount has come to mean. *shakes head*

This icon was made by samdonne and I ADORE IT, because YES. Spock? SO NOT GOING TO TAKE IT EASY ON PEOPLE WHO GET IN HIS WAY. I mean it's all in the intonation and then he PWNS.


Being a non-Trekkie (okay, Trekkie by osmosis because I did live in an apartment with Starfleet blueprints as the only acceptable wall art), I always assumed Spock's default was zen. This Spock's default is... not zen. Zen is what he strives for because he sure as hell ain't achieving it naturally.

My military geek twitches a little at Spock and Uhura as the whole power thing, but... seriously, has het ever been such a symbol for 'up yours' as this?

Yeah. Spock strives for like, Zen 101: Do Not Kill People on Sight. He's--mostly getting there. *blank* It was the contrast that just floored me when they met. It was like "So. One of these will possibly conquer the galaxy in a fit of rage. One tries to unite Romulus nad Vulcan. Guess which one?"

My love is pure and rather terrifying.

(Venus WTF?)

Yes. Spock's attitude was made of sheer, unadulterated awesome.

It really, really was.

I loved it too. Live long and prosper, bitches.


I heart Spock SO MUCH. Seriously, his whole "Bitch, please" attitude had me squirming in my seat the whole movie.

There is no one I don't totally love in the new ST main cast. No one. Spock is hot like burning, Kirk is a giant golden lab puppy, Uhura will fuck your shit up yo, Bones...OMG I have no words for Bones ♥ (other than, "Dr. McCoy to my pants, stat" *koff*), and Sulu and Chekov are adorably hot, together and separately.

I look forward to reading some crazypants!Spock-inspired ST:Reboot fic by you... *g*



It's hard to believe that so much awesome could be contained in such a Vulcan package, but lo. It can be done :D


*purrs at the universe*

So glad you enjoyed it! I thought the movie and the cast were awesome. I just loved the way Spock telling the Vulcan Academy guys to 'Live long and prosper' sounded like 'Eat shit and die'. I adored the younger, less controlled Spock. Notice the way this Spock is more touchy/feely? How'd you like Spock and Uhura? I've seen it three times already(vacation) and I'm gonna go see it again on Monday so I'll have something good to think about when I have to go back to prison, er, work. Trust me, it only gets better with each viewing because you catch stuff you missed the first time around, like Paul McGillion.

Live Long and Prosper,

I need to see it at least once more and I NEED THE DVD/BLU-RAY NOW IMMEDIATELY. *wants so much*

"No one said Spock is a total bitch This is very important information. Information that makes me happy. I've never seen anyone, anywhere, insert the word fuck, wordlessly, silently, unmistakably, into so many sentences in my life. Totes impressive."

LOLZ Yes. NuSpock is a TOTAL BITCH and this is why I love him.

YES, Spock is a bitch. A bitch who talks about breaking Jim in ^.^ It's a beautiful thing.

He talks about breaking Jim in and seems... intrigued.


I just saw it today (and matinees DO rock!) And I am so in love - not with any one character, but with THE WHOLE MOVIE!

I feel like they took many of the best aspects of ALL the different series, and added their new twists - and gave me everything I didn't know my fannish heart desired!

For one thing - it's a time travel story. Many of my favoite eps across the series have been time travel stories. Their twist? THEY DIDN'T FIX ANYTHING!!!! There was no, "Oh, hey, it was all meant to happen this way." No one went back through the black hole and saved Romulus. No one was given the opportunity to sacrifice their own, personal, happiness in order to save the timeline.


The timeline is fucked and GONE! And while I don't think they belaboured the differences, they are HUGE. The lack of planet Vulcan, as a major federation power, will likely lead to a Federation that is more likely to seek military solutions. The fact that Spock is actually the more experienced officer - something that was not true in TOS - may seriously affect how their relationships develop.

Not to mention that Spock is apparently deeply involved with Uhura - something that could only happen because he stayed on as an instructor at the Academy instead of being assigned to serve under Captain Pike.

I have this vision of Elder Spock finding this out, and having this really painful moment as he realizes that his younger self is missing out on the deeper parts of his relationship with Kirk. - And what must it have been like to see the young Kirk he'd loved when he himself is so old, and the young Kirk remembers nothing about their shared lives.


And aside from the slash that not everyone will see - the fights and flights and battles and bitchiness all just ROCKED.

God - yes. It really was THAT good.

God, it was. *purrs* IT WAS.

Also, their totally synched walking after getting back to the Enterprise after Nero's ship? *melts* THEIR LOVE OF VIOLENCE SHOULD BE SO MUCH MORE DISTURBING THAN IT IS.

Oh that scene was awesome. And if I wasn't clued in then, when the spoily thing that happens to his you know who, Oh man I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE AWESOME.


"Live long and prosper"="Fuck you."

*so IN LOVE*

I have seen many people say variations of "he makes live long and prosper sound like fuck off and die". Good times.

No one said Spock is a total bitch This is very important information. Information that makes me happy. I've never seen anyone, anywhere, insert the word fuck, wordlessly, silently, unmistakably, into so many sentences in my life. Totes impressive.

OH GOD YES...when he's standing in front of the heads of the Vulcan Science Academy and its all like "Eat Shit and Die!!!" laurapetri and I both looked at each other during that scene and then said out loud at the screen.."Bitches!"

Everything about that movie is made of awesome!

OMG! I've been so looking forward to reading what you think of Star Trek. I'm so freaking glad you finally saw it.

Also, I must know what the Child thought of it too.
