So I've been watching Star Trek and...

...I think I'd like to be a Vulcan. Logic, clever quips, excellent eyebrows. Could get a grip over those pesky emotions too (bloody anxiety).

Anyone else think Spock is dreamy?

BarefootAcrossHotLegoPieces Wed 02-Mar-16 20:42:50

Illogical, OP

I've always quite fancied being able to do a mind meld. But if I was going to be any species I think I'd go for Bajoran. Ideally without the whole Cardassian occupation thing.

Alternatively Trill would be good. Very intelligent and level headed.

Logical wink

I would love to be Vulcan if not I would like being a betazed

invisiblegorilla Wed 02-Mar-16 20:46:29

Being a joined Trill would be fascinating! All those lifetimes and memories. And great spots, too.

SlipperyJack Wed 02-Mar-16 20:49:39

I'd prefer to be a Klingon. It's so far away from my natural inclination, it would be an enjoyable change! And I agree with their attitude to dead bodies and Worf is well hot.

LetThereBeCupcakes Wed 02-Mar-16 20:50:09

Oh! I'd forgotten Betazed. Hmm. May have to rethink...

Of course not all Trill are joined. Is it as glamorous and exciting being un-joined?

LaurieFairyCake Wed 02-Mar-16 20:52:24

What's one of those things that's round and furry and breed lots

Really cuddly. I want one of those.

MuttonWasAGoose Wed 02-Mar-16 20:55:04

Tribbles.

I'd like to be a Klingon too. All that kinky sex.

invisiblegorilla Wed 02-Mar-16 20:55:33

I'm not sure if it is, LetThere! Probably depends on if you're scrubbing the floors of starships or in the Captain's seat grin I got the impression that being joined was something that all Trill were expected to aspire to, even though only a small minority were able to be joined (due to numbers and other reasons revealed in the series). Seemed like a lot of pressure and a bit grim in some ways.

You'd still be in the Star Trek universe though, eh?

RustyBear Wed 02-Mar-16 20:55:55

Tribbles, Laurie.

But you wouldn't just have one for long. Unless you starve it, of course.

invisiblegorilla Wed 02-Mar-16 20:56:29

Being a Betazoid would probably be a safer bet, what with everyone being telepathic. That would be very exciting.

LetThereBeCupcakes Wed 02-Mar-16 20:56:37

Laurie the trouble with Tribbles is that you can't just have one, IIRC...

LetThereBeCupcakes Wed 02-Mar-16 20:59:19

Hmm. <ponders options>

Maybe I'll try a different quadrant.

Telaxians, perhaps?

FoxFeatures Wed 02-Mar-16 21:01:16

No not telaxians. Neelix is the most annoying character in Star Trek and they all have mullets.

LetThereBeCupcakes Wed 02-Mar-16 21:03:23

Aww I like Neelix. He reminds me of a labrador puppy.

LetThereBeCupcakes Wed 02-Mar-16 21:04:22

Ooh! I've got it. I want to be a member of the Q continuum.

Chippednailvarnish Wed 02-Mar-16 21:05:49

I'd be a male ferrangi, imagine getting off on someone rubbing your ears...

Chippednailvarnish Wed 02-Mar-16 21:08:38

Actually being a Q would be cool...

invisiblegorilla Wed 02-Mar-16 21:08:52

Neelix was a bit divisive, eh? Remember the episode where Tuvok strangled him to death (in the holosuite, not actually)? I remember a lot of people cheering that on.

LetThereBeCupcakes Wed 02-Mar-16 21:11:52

Is that why they left him in the Delta Quadrant? Janeway was finding him too irritating so she ditched him? Bet she threatened to blow up the outpost if he didn't leave. Poor old Neelix.

VulcanWoman Wed 02-Mar-16 21:13:00

Of course. Live long and prosper.

Chippednailvarnish Wed 02-Mar-16 21:15:06

I always wanted a neuted tribble...

FoxFeatures Wed 02-Mar-16 21:17:40

Even Kes didn't want him and she was nicey nice nice.
