    Did NO one on set question this? Like, “Um…cut. Shatner, I don’t think you want to be seen carrying a giant phallus…..Oh? You don’t mind? Well, alright then.”

    #like how did no one notice that #it is the most dick shaped thing to ever dick #it is more phallic than an actual penis

    ARB for two of my favorite things.

This is only tangentially related to Miss Uhura, but I thought this was a nice story that more people need to know about.
The man pictured with Nimoy and Shatner was one of “only three black employees on the whole [Desilu] lot…Nichelle Nichols, [him]self, and the guy who had the food truck—who closed it up after lunch and then shined shoes.” (full story here)
His name is Charles Washburn and he is the first ever black American to be Assistant Director in Hollywood.
He passed away earlier this year.

    “As the obsessives among us surely already know, this year is the 46th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series. To mark the occasion, Google has created a special Doodle — going live right now on Google’s homepage.” (article)

    I might have spent a good chunk of time playing with this today.

    teaandbiscuitsplease:

    We Sherlockians all know that this quote originated with Sherlock himself in The Sign of Four. But, the Sherlock Holmes novels don’t exist in BBC Sherlock’s universe. So, for the longest time I just assumed that Sherlock came up with the phrase in The Hounds of Baskerville at The Cross Keys pub, and that John’s “Spock” comment was just poking fun that Sherlock was being overly analytical and needed to calm down.

    However, then I obviously remembered that the phrase was actually said by Spock in the 2009 film Star Trek. And that The Hounds of Baskerville takes place in 2011.

    So, assuming that BBC Sherlock exists in a universe in which Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories don’t exist, Sherlock is actually quoting Spock (who coined the phrase) from the 2009 Star Trek film- not just coming up with something clever off the top of his head. And John recognizes that and calls him out on it. So this means that they’ve both seen the film. I’d wager that they saw it together. Sherlock doesn’t seem like much of a film buff, but he’d endure it if he saw it with John.

    Meaning that at one point in time John and Sherlock had a Star Trek night.

    That is all.

    HEADCANON ACCEPTED

    #imagine them marathonning the movies tho #in the middle of The Motion Picture John says he’ll go pick up the milk#Sherlock asks him why #John says trust me I won’t be missing much

    I gladly accept this as canon.

Rumor: IDW Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover
kanenwriter:

[IT IS RUMORED THAT]  in May, IDW are to publish a Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation  crossover series. Featuring The Doctor, Rory, Amy, Captain Picard,  Worf, Data, Geordie LaForge, Deanna Troy, Will Riker and the rest. And  that this art, featuring the Doctor, Rory and Amy on the bridge of the  Enterprise is a cover that will be used in the series.
The fact that this would be specifically the 11th Doctor meeting specifically the TNG cast has me very interested.

I see you there Geordi.  Being all touchy when you’re supposed to be freaking out.  But I understand if touching your space boyfriend calms you.

Do not play. I was shipping this before I even know what shipping was.

GET OUTTA MY HEAD BRANDOS!!!!!! I SHIPPED THEM TOO!!!!! Well, when I wasn’t shipping Guinan and Picard, anyways… XD

Wait… there are folks who DON’T ship them?!?

I ship them like I ship Riker and my vagina.
Er…did I say that out loud?
(In all honesty, this pairing never occurred to me until there was Tumblr. But I’m all for it, and I really wanted to say that first sentence.)
