He just really, really, hates pretty much everyone, (with the only possible exceptions being Jim and Bones, and then only sometimes) and is doing his best not to act upon it.
I have no intention of getting stuck here eating palukoos.
I love how whenever she gets to wear mufti, Jadzia goes for purple - her party dress, her Adventure Outfit here, her swimming togs. I am convinced it is her favourite colour.
holy shit look at this excellent fandom secret
i love it
GUYS I KIND OF FORGOT I HAD THIS SECONDARY TUMBLOG UNTIL THIS EVENING
also note Dalekalaka, the God of Star Trek Headcanons
I always keep meaning to offer tribute to Dalekalaka. Like ‘Garak never has Bajoran crochet clothes in his store’ and ‘Molly and Keiko bond over Sailor Moon’ and ‘The Doctor is secretly a fan of bad pop music’.
But I keep forgetting. :|
Oh, and when Molly’s been especially well-behaved, Keiko rewards her by putting her hair in Sailor Moon odango and ponytails, or ‘hair loopies’ like Katara. Molly was Katara for Halloween like five years running.
The other Star Trek character who I feel sure would like Sailor Moon is Deanna Troi. It just seems totally up her alley, with the hair and the magic and the true love.
Headcanon: Odo so totally brought the tribble home in his pocket - possibly by accident. And then left it at Quark’s - totally on purpose. :-)
FOR THE GREATER GOOD
(the greater good)
Okay, my explanation: Vic Fontaine, the hologram, is a recreation of Vic Fontaine, an actual 20th Century Las Vegas entertainer (brother of Vince, we’ve covered that). In the alternate universe, the real, 1960s Vic Fontaine was flung forward to the 24th Century by a space-time anomaly, or some weeping angels or some shit, and turned to crime to survive. It’s a sad story.
Cardassian Hair: At this point I’m guessing this is all done when they sleep as this must take 8 hours…
It’s not that much more lavish than a Starfleet Updo. My headcanon for this is that there are machines that look much like one of those old-school beauty salon hairdryers, with a sort of bell that lowers down over your head, but instead of just blowing hot air to dry your hair, they have little robot arms in there that will, with incredible swiftness and neatness, whisk your hair into whatever style you have chosen from the menu.
You can download more styles online, either paying for ones created by famous professional stylist/designers, or sticking to the free open-source ones shared by enthusiastic amateurs, which are often just as good or better - particularly because amateurs are more likely to have provided good styles for unfashionable and difficult hair types, like frizzy-curly or very fine and limp. And they do this without any painful pulling, because they can sense with amazing acuity the tension in the hair strand and the scalp, and are programmed to learn their user’s preferences and tolerances over time. Styling products and hair accessories are all loaded into compartments on the outside of the bell before use.
Of course there are still plenty of people who style their hair by hand, just as there are people who cook from scratch, but the styling machines are so convenient that nearly everyone with long hair has them, if only for mornings when you wake up a bit late and need to get presentable in a hurry.
HOLY CRAP THE BEAUTIFUL
go to the original and read the explanation, too
My headcanon for Lore is that Data packed him up neatly and sent him to Bruce Maddox, with a polite note explaining that he was very welcome to examine and study him but under no circumstance should he ever be reactivated as he is not quite right in the head.
He had already sent him Lal, since he had what he needed to keep from her (her memory), and then, what do you do with a ‘dead’ android? There’s no funerary tradition to call on, no precedent, so he had to work something out for himself, and he decided that the best thing that could happen to the remains (which weren’t ‘Lal’ any more - possibly influenced by Worf’s thoughts about the body being only a shell here) was that they could help to advance knowledge about androids.
After their years as pen-pals, he trusts Maddox enough to do that now; he doesn’t think he’ll do anything nasty or stupid with his family.
KIRK: Yes, but what you’re after is a royal fizzbin, but the odds of getting a royal fizzbin are astron- Spock, what are the odds in getting a royal fizzbin?
SPOCK: I have never computed them Captain.
KIRK: Well they’re astronomical, believe me.
SPOCK: [mouths] Astronomical.
Little bit of inter-series continuity that I like very much: decades later, in DS9, Quark invites somebody to play fizzbin.
Tentative headcanon: Kirk wrote his memoirs (or perhaps, while being old as dirt and wearing leather patches on his elbows and calling Data ‘boy,’ McCoy wrote a memoir about his adventures with Kirk and Spock) and Quark has read them.
Further tentative headcanon: if you play fizzbin long enough, you have to tig a tog.
