The following entry has been moved here since the Planet Starship page has apparently been deleted.

  • Planet Starship: In "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky" a group of aliens have been sequestered inside a large interstellar asteroid for so long that they have forgotten that they are actually inside one.

Fancrufting: does anyone know if Uhura's first name has been made canon for the version of the character played by Nichelle Nichols? The official website doesn't list it, in a very specific contrast to the version played by Zoe Saldana which does list it. But does actually count as an "official" source anymore? Life is confusing.

From the Wikipedia article on Plato's Stepchildren:

This is often cited as the first interracial kiss depicted on a scripted television series, but took place after Sammy Davis, Jr. had briefly kissed Nancy Sinatra on the variety program Movin' With Nancy in December 1967 and an interracial kiss had already occurred on Emergency Ward 10, a British program, in 1964.

Also, the claim ignores Hispanic interracial kisses. And the Star Trek scene used a take which hid the actual touching of lips.

Leigh Sabio:

James Tiberius Kirk (William Shatner): The Kirk, The Captain. Sleeps with Green Skinned Space Babes. And Spock on occasion. Played by Large Ham William Shatner, with multiple Chewing The Scenery moments in almost every episode.

Should we have "and Spock, on occasion" there? I mean, I ship Kirk and Spock, too, and I was excited to see that in the character description, but I think we ought to draw a distinction between Subtext and text.

I think with the potholes we're good. I mean, really, Gene Roddenberry has pretty much acknowledged the two were in love with each other. This isn't subtext like Batman and Robin; this is subtext like Xena and Gabrielle. By which we mean, "all but text."
