Shower of evil…
Spock’s Volcano Mission (Star Trek, Kre-O, 2013)
This is a fun little set. The “volcano”shoots out “lava” when you flip the lever. The shuttlecraft features three opening hatches, the bottom one activates a light brick to light Spock’s way down. However, it looks as though Sulu may have entered in the wrong coordinates for the mission.
Poor Spock. He sure gets into some pickles, doesn’t he?
“Because you are my friend.”
I don’t claim to be an expert on Star Trek by any means, because I’ve only been a fan of the franchise for a few months, at most. However, something that irked me while scrolling through the #star trek tag was the hate on Spock’s characterization in Star Trek: Into Darkness. The consensus of…
My only quibble here is that genetics affects the physical body, but not the cultural/emotional behavior of a being. Spock’s cultural upbringing, deep grief at the loss of the telepathic bonds to his homeworld, and PTSD are probably more influential than his physical makeup.
Spock and Uhura are an ace bounty hunting/mercenary duo, working with or against proper authorities as they choose and they’re sent out by Lenore Karidian with a list of names who are in deep debt to her father and need to be taken care of. Jim Kirk is on the list and Spock and Uhura find a well-matched and wily target in the Midwest’s very own genius level repeat offender. Sparks fly, alliances are formed, the truth comes out about who the Karidians really are and what they want with that list of people, and the new mission is to expose Governor Kodos and what would make my X-Files loving heart even happier is if they expose high-level Federation Tarsus IV cover-ups in the process. It all ends in polyamory and the most fearsome trio in space.
I love Spock’s buzz cut. :-)
Due to my strong personal convictions, I wish to stress that this image in no way endorses a belief in the “JIF” pronunciation.
Me, either. Hard ‘j/g’, please.

This should be Spock’s theme song in the alternative universe…
Yeah, it’s ‘old’ music, y’all. Enjoy it. No autotune, no manipulation. Real stuff.
And for once, the wealth is being shared outside of just the series and the uber-talented Jessica Lange!
