David Gerrold, famous for writing the "Trouble with Tribbles" Star Trek episode, also wrote an episode that included gay characters - but it was shot down by Paramount. Now you can watch it online.

To make the episode, Gerrold teamed up with the fan crew behind Star Trek: Phase II, a web series that's intended to be the fourth season of the original series. He dusted off his gay-themed script, called "Blood and Fire," and also directed it. Originally, "Blood and Fire" was written for Star Trek: TNG, and approved by series creator Gene Roddenberry, but executives at the network balked. Gerrold says they told him they were worried they'd lose their advertisers because "mommies" would call in to complain that they'd seen gay people on Star Trek.

For the webisode, Gerrold re-wrote the script to bring it up to date with issues like gay marriage, and also to make the characters more openly gay. In the original, they were portrayed as friends - the only hint that they were gay was one character asking them how long they'd been together. In the new version, as you can see in the clip below, there's no question that they're lovers.

The episode is about the Enterprise responding to a distress call, and dealing with scary "bloodworms." It introduces a new character, Peter Kirk, the gay nephew of the captain.

According to AfterElton's Brent Hartinger, who has seen the full episode:

There's tension between Peter and his famous uncle, who is determined to keep him out of harm's way, even if it means treating him differently than the other crewmembers. Eventually, Peter reveals the real reason he requested a stint on the Enterprise: to be near his boyfriend, Alex Freeman (Evan Fowler). When the couple make plans to marry, Kirk agrees to officiate, but only "after the away mission" - which may or may not bode well for the future of this relationship . . . The portrayal of Peter and Alex's romantic relationship is treated no differently than any of the dozens of heterosexual relationships the various Star Trek incarnations have included over the decades. Indeed, the storyline is incorporated so naturally as to …

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little Bajoran? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Obsidian Order, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on the Bajoran Resistance, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in Mugato warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire Cardassian armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Bajor, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over Subspace? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the Alpha Quadrant and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, vole. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Cardassian Central Command and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the southern continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit trilithium resin all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

Except the Kahless clone in "Rightful Heir" was played by a white actor and he would have originally lived like a thousand years before the augment crisis.

Is it really such a stretch to imagine that Klingons have ethnic groups? Look at how different one human can be from one another physically. It doesn't necessarily detract from cultural unity or whatever. Geordi and Picard don't look similar. No biggie. Earth is a big place, so is Q'OnoS.

Teraquads, not terabytes. What is a quad as compared to a byte? Who knows. This was done intentionally, so to make it impossible to make comparisons between contemporary computing power and memory storage with the numbers mentioned in trek. Presumably, a teraquad is many, many terabytes of information. Gigaquads and kiloquads are mentioned too.

Really though, the enterprise computer would have to have obscene amounts of storage and processing power. I mean it's got all the history, knowledge and obscure cultural data of earth, as well as every planet in the federation, not to mention the responsibility of managing ship systems which are mostly automated.

It would probably be less retarded if it popped out of the helm console or something, so Riker could actually pilot the ship based off sensor telemetry and not just looking out the fucking window, presuming to know where exactly the 700-metre-long starship is relative to everything else.

Manual piloting of a spacecraft, even a large one, I'm fine with. Doing it by eye, however, is just fucking stupid.

Oh oh oh i remember one more.

The reason that Enterprise was cancelled after season 4 ended was the same reason that Firefly was ended, and that's because the studio was only counting the viewership on the nights the new episode was airing, when many more people were watching the reruns on the late night reshowings (someone fact check me here?).

Some time during the 90s, I received a book from my older brother that I'm fairly sure had blue prints and schematics of various Star Trek shit. I do not remember much about it. I have searched for a long time both the internet and my house for this book but to no avail. I only wish to identify it so that i may buy a new one.

What i can remember, is that
>cover was generally blue with STAR TREK in appropriate font, colored yellow
>pages were dark blue in color, with yellow LCARS-esque borders and white or light colored text and imagery
>it was mostly focused on the Enterprise D but did contain other stuff
>pages had specific deck and section schematics/blueprints
>i think the page numbers were located in little starfleet emblems at the bottom of each page
>the end of the book had individual pages devoted to weapons, i specifically remember a romulan disruptor
>pic related is the only thing ive found that resembles what i remember, but the colors are not as i recalled, having dark blue text and light blue page, instead of the dark blue page with yellow/white text that I remember.

Please help me identify this book.

You can find a lot of this stuff if you do a Google image search for "Star Trek Blueprints" and set the colour control to blue. I can't guess which images might be from OP's book, but if they aren't sourced on the page you find them you can usually pick that up with a reverse image search.

I just thought about how when they're designing the weapons that aside from the basics like grip, nozzle etc. they have no idea what anything is

They probably just throw bumps and lumps in because they looked cool and then the writers of those encyclopaedias call them inertial dampeners, coolers and phase inject automation circuitry.

In star trek, the Romulan commander would shout some commands and all his dudes working the control panels would be blasted with fireworks and tossed around the bridge, and the ship would be consumed in a fireball that destroys the Golden Gate Bridge because they missed Star Fleet Academy for a few miles. But nobody uses that shit anymore except to commit suicide, so the Romulans are given posthumous awards of valor and peace is finally and permanently reached between the Federation and the Romulan Empire.

The more Sci-fi shows I watch which involve war/villains/combat and FTL the more I wonder how the plentiful ships of limited military value (civilian traders, cargo, etc.) aren't just used as an easy kamikaze against any super vessels or even en masse against whole fleets.


Raptors warping in/out next to a battlestar caused significant damage. Basestars have even less hull strength. I know it wouldn't have made sense to use the raptors or civilian ships as weapons once they were on the run but it should have been the centre of all military strategy prior to the fall of The Colonies.

In The Doctor And The Enterprise, Kirk get caught completely flatfooted by the Sontarans' enthusiasm for kamekaze tactics. Indeed, their willingness to try ramming first, before anything else. GLORIOUS!

What the hell is "ramming speed", anyway? Is there a preferred speed for ramming, or is it just full balls out, v-tech just kicked in yo, SHEEZA GOA speed?

Perhaps ramming speed is the maximum impulse speed where the ships is still somewhat maneuverable, if they need to make any last second course corrections.

Ramming speed: the speed your face accelerates to when the ship you're on suddenly stops dead in its tracks.

tl;dr HOLD ON
