Trek Prequel Sequel

Man, the war is raging over at trekmovie about the rumor of Jack Black as Harry Mudd. I had to jump in the comments fray. So fun.

This isn't particularly a comment about the new movie, but about your site in general. I've been a Star Trek fan since I was 13 years old. I'm not saying how long ago that was, but let's just say that TOS was in syndication.

Although I've been a fan for more than half my life, I'd never saught out fanfiction before. Now I'm hooked and my husband feels like a ST widower. He says it's worse than football season, but how would he know.

Your site keeps me going through a mundane, administrative assistant, want to be a rock star day to day grind. Not that I don't appreciate what I have, but it was not my life long dream to be an administrative type. As a matter of fact TOS series and books is what inspired me to try to become an author. And now, through fanfiction like yours, it is what is driving me to pick up the novel that I've been working on for the better part of three years and put some passion into it. I'd forgotten what a crush I had on Spock. I thought it would be so outlandishly cool if Kirk and Uhura were my parents and that, through some funky time warped scenario, I came back to the Enterprise and hooked up with Spock. I'd be a grown ass woman, of course. You know, through the time travel. The kind of, I am my own grandma scenario.

I just wanted to say thank you for all of your great posts and shorts and novellas and novels. I've spent the last three weeks since thr reboot came out going through the fanfiction. Since I'd limited myself to the novels and multiple generations of TV series, the thought of a Spock/Uhura or Spock/Kirk/Uhura combination hadn't crossed my mind. Well, other than them being my parents and Spock eventually becoming my lover. Imagine how that "Meet my Dad" scenario would've played out. I need to find my old journals...

Jack would be perfect. I'm watching TOS on netflix and having a Season 1 marathon. Lovin' it.
