Star Trek XII: Chekov Develops An Ulcer
Oh, and am I the only one who was REALLY worried for Chekov the whole movie?
I can only assume they’ve not watched enough TOS to see the ship. It’s more there in some episodes, less in others. Frankly, I didn’t see it until I read about it, went “nah, no way” in my head, then re-watched it, looking for proof against Spirk.
By the time I’d rewatched all three seasons, I couldn’t deny its existence.
That sounds ridiculous because nu! depends HEAVILY on TOS!, explicity even.
Oh and did anybody else laugh like crazy at the Millenium Falcon moment? No? Just me?
There was this one moment when Spock revealed a certain item of information in which Kirk got a VERY familiar look on his face too. It was AWESOME.
Cold fusion does not work that way. (I may have said this aloud)
That shuttle should not have had an air intake.
If you make such a big deal about explosive decompression (which doesn’t work that way), you had better do it all over the ship and there were WAY too many structural cracks and gaps in it for me to be comfortable with it successfully flying.
Neither free fall nor falling through atmosphere work that way. (I may have shouted “Gravity doesn’t work that way!” at the screen.) And by the way, hull breaches with structural cracks + falling through atmosphere = very not good.
Was that supposed to be Earth by the way? Because that would be stupid, considering that the Admiral was in the process of a coverup at the time and didn’t they FALL OUT of warp? If it wasn’t Earth, how the heck did they GET to Earth?! DISPLACEMENT DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY AUGH AUGH AUGH
While I see your concerns about changes to canon and whatever changes that might make to what you expect from Spock and Kirk…
The movie directly referenced the TOS story in a particularly exceptional manner, in a way that almost explicitly relies on Spock caring about Kirk more than he even does Uhura. Your ship is as intact as the movie can make it. Carry on.
Just saw Star Trek. Liked just about everything before the death scene, “It was what you would have done” thing was kind of brilliant. But everything after felt a bit tacked together and poorly executed. Did they just run out of budget? Or maybe they wanted the movie shorter?
In other news, Spot the British Actor was amazing. Am I the only one blown away by
Mickey’s Noel Clarke’s five minutes or so? He did all his acting with his face and yay! Also, I was sure I spotted Angel Coulby in the engine room, but surely they would have given her lines…
why do people let me on the internet, I don’t even think this is funny.
Gotta reblog, it’s in my tumblr contract.
Please explain to me what is the point! I’m ashamed but curious.
They’re auditory puns: words that sound close enough to other words that putting them in the place of the other words triggers an involuntary mental twitch. For some, it’s hilarious, for others it’s just fundamentally annoying. (I happen to be one of those who love them.)
Mustache sounds very similar to “must ask”. That one’s entirely internal to American English. “Tsarcastic”, however, is a play on the difficulty of the American ear (and phonetic system) to properly reproduce “tsar” / царь , so we generally pronounce it “sar” / cар or “zar” / зap.
