my number one favorite trope is and always will be:
captain james t. kirk: *does anything*
spock, immediately dialing amanda: mother. he has done it. again. a thing. i am experiencing an emotion. a human feeling. i do not know how to proceed. i cannot comprehend this man and his profound effects upon me. i have lost all control. i do not understand. i am emotionally compr-
Spock to Amanda:
Concept: Jeff Goldblum as Spock’s Vulcan uncle.
Sarek: Ambassador this is…
my brother Sevuk.
Sevuk of Vulcan: How is… uh everyone tonight? These robes are something, huh? I’ve always looked good in these high collars… you have great skin, anyone ever tell you that? Yeah.
star trek be having episodes titled shit like “the city on the edge of forever” “who mourns for adonais?” “and the children shall lead” “is there in truth no beauty?” “for the world is hollow and i have touched the sky” and “let that be your last battlefield” and expect me not to go bonkers fucking yonkers
i abruptly remembered how a lot of people outside of the US are disgusted/vexed by the idea of iced tea and went “oh no, Spock would HATE it.”
so anyways, the biggest fight Spock and Bones ever had was that time Spock asked for tea (Vulcan Spice, hot) and Bones gave him iced tea (sweet, cold, “an insult to the beverage and clearly designed to appeal to underdeveloped palates”). they didn’t speak for a full month and the crew still refers to it as the “Tea Party Incident”
all the telepaths aboard the enterprise always either look at spock weird or are very amused by him but none of them will tell why and it’s because despite spock’s stoic façade he is in fact just constantly screaming in his head
telepaths: *read spock’s mind*
spock: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaa a a. A aaaaa. (jim) aaaaaaaaaa a a a
