That’s the face you make when you’re the product of a democratic socialist utopian culture where the very concept of currency no longer exists and they’re still somehow not paying you enough to deal with this shite.

Ohhh Spock prime…;(

Oh that breaks my heart… after so many years… in another universe…logical Spock’s first explanation for Jim’s presence is that Jim found him… that Jim has come to save him…

Oh, Spock…

the thing I love most about Kirk’s string of ex lovers across the galaxy is that every time he runs into one he’s like 

“!!!!! How are you!! I missed you so much!! How’s your career?? Successful?? I’m so happy for you!! Haha, remember that time we almost got married!! But both of our careers were in the way?? That hasn’t changed but I’m still kinda in love with you and I’m happy you’re doing well!!! Goodbye forever again it’s a shame we never got married but I understand!!”

Bring back this kind of male hero please and thank you.

Kirk x Tension Headaches, OTP

okay so a lot of humorous commentary exists regarding shatner’s acting in TOS and, absolutely, there are some massive over the top moments, for sure. highly gifable. totally inexplicable. potentially space-crazy. there are times in which you wonder what everyone else in the scene must’ve been thinking as shatner got down on all fours and did the pony prance. oh to be a fly on the wall of that studio…

but in a way, it’s the sum of the whole of the character that ties all these outrageous incidents together into a character who—despite all the drama and all the odds—honestly, deeply, makes sense. and it’s the little insightful touches like the theme of his tension headaches carried throughout the series that hint toward the bigger picture.

this is an individual whose entire existence during the five year mission is comprised of shit for which he has absolutely no context, no frame of reference, no predictions—no expectations. simply put, it’s where no man has gone before. no one has gone before. he can’t draw from experience beyond the experience he has, beyond metaphor and instinct and chance and intuition and blind shots in the dark; his principles and his courage and, hopefully, his compassion are all he has. and the lives of his entire crew depends on that: the small offerings he brings to a vast table where he knows the names of a few of the guests but little more and has to throw, say, the dinner party of a lifetime.

it’s humanity he’s representing, humanity he believes in, humanity he’s a part of. but in order to get where he is, to be in charge of a mission like the enterprise crew’s… you’ve got to be crazy. the most innovative and revolutionary heroes are crazy. that’s who they are and that’s who jim kirk is. he’s so much larger than life that everything he does is, by necessity, over the top. that’s in the job requirements, spelled out between the lines of the fine print. 

only he’s also a man. just a human being. he explodes onto a scene and does the impossible and becomes, on more than one occasion, a god, and he pushes himself beyond the limits of his capabilities and physicality basically every day of his life but with all the running around and critical thinking and constant action and last-second bids for triumph…

the guy gets these killer headaches. 

so i guess that’s why i love kirk so much. not just because of his stalwart idealism, the hope and the faith he embodies, how ready he is to show us both the beauty and the ridiculousness of grandeur, how utterly embarrassing it is to be the hero—but because he’s not sleeping enough and his shoulders are tense and his head hurts like hell and he’s only human, and it’s because of that he represents the most humiliating and the most breathtaking truths of our species. we are ludicrous. we are hope. 

Sorry if it’s tacky to reblog my own post so quickly but I gotta give respect/signal boost to this excellent commentary from tumblr user spicyshimmy–it was worth collecting these screencaps for the fact that I got to read that.
