The official blurb:
Following the explosive events seen in season one of Star Trek: Picard, Raffi Musiker finds herself torn between returning to her old life as a Starfleet Intelligence officer or something a little more tame—teaching at the Academy, perhaps. The decision is made for her though when a message from an old contact—a Romulan spy—is received, asking for immediate aid. With the help of Cristóbal Rios and Dr. Agnes Jurati, and assistance from Jean-Luc Picard, Raffi decides to take on this critical mission—and quickly learns that past sins never stay buried. Finding the truth will be complicated, and deadly…
I cannot wait!!!
I really liked how Una McCormack wrote Raffi in The Last Best Hope, and I’m very curious to see her take on Rios and Elnor and Seven and all the others.
I’ll keep my fingers crossed that there will be lots of goodness for Saffi fans as well. Given that we’ve seen them together in the season 2 trailer, I can’t imagine Seven won’t feature in this book, even if she’s not in the blurb. Elnor is not in the blurb, but he’s on the cover! So we’ll see what happens.
Here’s to hoping 😁
what if t'pol goes and hangs out with hoshi sometimes after neuropressure sessions with trip in her own quarters bc it sometimes takes a bit for the lingering smell of his cologne/general human scent to dissipate, and hoshi’s quarters are pretty much the most inoffensive she’s encountered on a human ship
and at first hoshi is trying to figure out if t'pol needs something, like something work-related or maybe she wants to be able to speak her native Vulcan with someone or heck, maybe she wants hoshi’s help setting up a covert gambling system on the enterprise who knows
t'pol seems extra drained though so hoshi doesn’t push to find out, not that t'pol would seem anything but inscrutably vulcan to anyone who hadn’t gotten to know her
most of the time when t'pol comes to hoshi’s quarters they just coexist. they each do their own thing, generally reading. once hoshi offered to do the calming hand thing for t'pol that she had taught her on that derelict ship, but t'pol is exhausted on touch and quickly feels that any recharging she had begun to do is being undone. watching hoshi practice the motions on her own hands does seem to help, however
hoshi appreciates that if she needs or wants to go elsewhere, it doesn’t seem to be a big deal if she just leaves t'pol to decompress while she carries on. Sometimes, increasingly often, if she returns after t'pol has gone back to her own quarters then hoshi will find some quiet token of appreciation like a beautiful snippet of vulcan calligraphy or even just her bed having been made with inhuman precision
Obsessed with the idea of being a symbiont’s first host. Gaining pretty much nothing from the process because the only memories it has is of swimming around in a cave. Go worm, give us nothing.
new star trek oc: ricky dornt, 18 yr old trill host and his fresh-outta-the-soup symbiont. fresh faced, empty headed, and about to get their shared dick kicked in by the universe
This is really funny, but I think another hilarious possibility is if those worms have completely full, dramatic lives in those pools. So the first host would be telling wild stories from their past life like any other joined trill, and people would be like “Woah that’s crazy where could something like that have even happened???” And they’d be like “Oh in the worm pool.”
oh my god, I never considered worm drama.
Okay but I just want to watch Sam and Jack get into a bar fight, no armbands, while Teal'c looks on in mild embarrassment and Daniel waves his arms frantically like “GUYS!!”
Jack glanced sideways at Sam, raising a brow in the direction of the two fools next to them.
“Sir?” she replied. It wasn’t a question of if, but strategy.
Jack nodded calmly; having Sam at his side was the best feeling in the world. “I’ll take the little one,” he said.
Daniel let out a heavy sigh as Sam grinned wickedly. “Here we go again,” he muttered.
This is EXACTLY what I had in mind 😍😂
i literally can’t listen to tik tok by kesha without thinking about that goddamn star trek tos fanvid…you know the one
this fucking video
Congrats to the creator of this video for being the only funny person on the internet ever
And now you know what perfection looks like
‘That Kesha tweet was probably faked …’ *checks* ‘… HUH.’
the reason sisko was so 🙄🙄🙄 over eddington and dukat desperately trying to become his psychosexual codependent nemesis is cause he already has his starfleet academy vulcan bully who is literally only mentioned in take me out to the holosuite….like sisko remembers the last time he saw solok to the very day but he had to pull up eddington’s personnel file when he went all les mis. sorry ladies he’s taken
I remember reading somewhere that Whoopi Goldberg headcanoned Guinan and Q as having had a relationship with Q and that’s why they’re so antagonistic of each other which makes the first scene in which we see them interact so much funnier like imagine you and your ex see each other and immediately do this at each other
KIRK THIS WHY YOU GOTTA FILL OUT THE LOG
I’ve heard the theory that Kirk’s logs just get circulated round headquarters for lulz before being dumped in the circular file as obvious fabrications by someone bored with a frontier posting.
“Hey, have you seen this one? He says he fought Apollo.”
“What, the old earth probe?”
“Try the old earth GOD!”
“Hilarious! Classic Kirk! That’s better than the time when he was transported to an evil dimenison.”
The reason why in The Naked Now it was Riker who remembered that the previous polywater infection had happened is that he’s the sort of person who would read The Hilarious Adventures of Captain Kirk for fun.
I especially like this idea because of the implication that all the other captains in Starfleet are reporting perfectly ordinary experiences like visiting a space station, dropping off supplies at a colony, bit of a stand-off with some Klingons in disputed space but got out of it unscathed - and then there’s Kirk all, “sorry guys we’ve been off course this week because my first officer seriously needed to get laid (LIKE YOU HAVE NO IDEA MY NECK STILL HURTS)” and “let me tell you about the Chicago Gangster planet” and “WHIPPED AND THROWN IN JAIL BY SPACE NAZIS.”
I actually really like the above explanation
“So wait, they stole his first officer’s brain?”
I always preferred the idea that every single Constitution-class starship of the Kirk era was running into all kinds of insane shit and so the Enterprise’s adventures mostly just got lost in the shuffle.
“Sir, Starbase 12 reports a flock of space sharks cruising through the system. They’re worried about them chewing on the antennae.”
“Can we get the Hood over there to monitor their path and shoo them off if need be?”
“No can do sir, Hood called in two days ago, says the Captain took his security detail down to the local surface to fight an army of evil komodo dragons.”
“Damn. What about the Valiant?”
“Captain says she’s currently engaged in a duel of wits with a clone of Bismarck.”
“Like the battleship?”
“No sir, a clone of Otto von Bismarck, the German chancellor from the 1900s.”
“I’m scared to ask, but where’s the Potemkin?”
“Last reported in pursuit of a super-intelligent shade of blue.”
“God’s sake. What about the Enterprise, are they available?”
“Something about a hole in space.”
“Christ, it’s always something.”
i still think about how in if wishes were horses they dedicated a whole subplot to julian’s uncomfortable fantasy of jadzia and only casually threw in kira‘s vivid figment of a fire and a man running covered in flame. in the words of my friend - her imagination is consumed by her trauma! explicitly! everyone else is realizing absurd, harmless, even heartwarming visions, but her ptsd manifests something horrifying and painful. and there is literally no acknowledgment from the entire rest of the episode that it even happened. no one was even there to see it. like not to be on the nose, but imagine what they could’ve done with that?
Painted this for Torri’s birthday next week.
One of my favorite Elizabeth pictures and sunflowers because I heard those are some of her favorite flowers 🌻
- the ‘WE HAVE A VERY AFFECTIONATE PET MOUNTAIN LION’ bed
- the ‘OUR NINJA BODYGUARD HAS TO SLEEP *SOMEWHERE*’ bed
- the ‘YOU’RE GROUNDED - DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT SNEAKING OUT’ bed
- the ‘WE’RE POLY BUT SOMETIMES ONE OF US NEEDS ELBOW SPACE’ bed
imagine your ot3
the “Not everyone in the triad is into cuddling but doesn’t want to miss out on late-night conversations and morning tea” bed
- the “Someone’s gonna roll over in the middle of the night and absolutely pancake the other two” bed
In Our Man Bashir, Garak complains about the turtleneck he had to wear to fit the 60s aesthetic, because he doesn’t “like the collar”. Knowing that Cardassians consider the shoulders and neck to be sexually attractive, he was just complaining cuz he didn’t look slutty enough.
