Did you know? Leonard Nimoy invented the Vulcan nerve pinch. The script called for Spock to punch Kirk in the back of the head, but Nimoy didn’t think this was fitting with Spock’s calm and logical demeanor, so he invented the nerve pinch. He explained it to the director of the episode, who apparently had no idea what he was talking about and just let him do it, whereas when he explained it to William Shatner he got it straight away. For a while it was known as the FSNP, the “Famous Spock Nerve Pinch”.
So, there you go, fun fact about that. :3
a lot of unnecessary movement for someone so practical
Maybe he’s so zen he can sense true north. LOL IDK this is my new favorite gif.
WHAT THE FUCK
WHY WOULD YOU EVEN
WAT WAT WAT IS DIS WHAT WHY I CAN’T
savvylikeyeahhh asked: Kirk/Spock/Bones on a boat ala The Lonely Island! (Spock believes this is the wrong kind of ship, however.)
FUCK YEAH FUCK YEAH FUCK YEAH FUCK YEAHHHHHHH
CAPTAIN WHERE DID YOU PUT THE ENTERPRISE
Jim: “Blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah.”
Spock: The cadet is gorgeous.
Jim: “Blah blah. Blah blah blah.”
Spock: Uhhhh, “The cadet’s logic is sound.”
This is exactly how it happened.
One of the things that surprised me first time I watched the reboot of Star Trek was the deep heartache I felt for Spock Prime. Seriously, the movie’s shinny and the new crew are crazy pretty, but every time the movie ends, my thoughts linger on Prime. (this is by far the most depressing graph I have ever created.)
- Years lived (so far): 157
- Years knowing Jim: 28
- Years trying to forget Jim: 3
- Years spent as Space Husbands: 20
- Years spent alone, carrying a holographic message of Jim on a pendant around his neck: 94
I am not crying…
Reblogging this because it arrived in my askbox in response to my question about what makes us so sad about Spock Prime. I mentioned this in a roundabout way when I was writing but seeing it in a graph like that really drives it home that he really didn’t know Jim all that long during the course of his extremely long life.
;~; my heart
ALL MY CREYS
aclassicdisaster asked: Hmm can you do Spock and Data in an intense~ 3D chessathon with cheerleader Kirk fangirling in the back for his bb…with Spock all distracted and annoyed? Lol idk
OH MY GOD
KIRK HE CAN SEE UP YOUR SKIRT IT’S BREAKING HIS CONCENTRATION
Spock has a secret box of Bollywood musicals hidden under his bed.
I imagine he watches Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge a lot.
