Added DiffLines:

* Probably worth pointing out that Parmen forces Kirk to recite [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonnet_57 Sonnet 57]] while crawling, the context of his HappinessInSlavery lines being of an older man being trapped by his love for a younger man. He’s also the one that gets the skimpiest GoGoEnslavement outfit later on.

Added DiffLines:

* David Gerrold may have had bad experiences with slash fans later on, but he was more than happy to indulge, [[https://64.media.tumblr.com/8215d155ebf293381c9ee38cf5337200/tumblr_oe1553bW6s1skb75eo1_500.jpg like Kirk eyeing Spock when he mentions “love”]] in “The Trouble With Tribbles”.

Added DiffLines:

** Both gay and lampshading is how Bela feels up Kirk before guiding him into the other room to talk, and ''both'' Kirk and Spock have HereWeGoAgain expressions.

Added DiffLines:

** They also regularly roleplay as [[HoYay/SherlockHolmes Sherlock and Watson]]


Added DiffLines:

** The actors have also [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Tq8zaSObWU LITERALY acted out out fan-fic together] not once but [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M44QMKWMxuQ&list=PLL6Y6m9C-4ulaz0BIRw4Kf4ebSEWVzaT5 twice]!

Added DiffLines:

**If you don't believe how incredibly flirty this scene is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfnLRf59RLI watch the whole exchange here]]

Added DiffLines:

* One of the gangsters in “A Piece Of The Action” confuses Bones when he goes on about his pretty blue eyes.

Added DiffLines:

* “Where No Man” was a book that Shatner did with two slash fans, which includes that Shatner noting that Kirk would let himself get tortured sexually if it meant protecting Spock and called Kirk/Spock an undying love, Roddenberry saying that Kirk and Spock complete each other, and Nimoy finishing out with “what you saw is what we did”.

Added DiffLines:

* Unsubtle in “Day Of The Dove”, as Kang introduces his science officer “and wife”, and it cuts to Kirk and Spock next to each other for about three seconds.

Added DiffLines:

* Spock’s official bio literally has him compare Kirk’s smile to the sun, keeps him an ElephantInTheLivingRoom because Spock can’t deal with his death, and he doesn’t know how to write about someone “he deeply loved”.

Added DiffLines:

* “Lower Decks”, episode “An Embarrassment Of Dopplers” tells of Kirk and Spock crashing a party, drinking a lot, and carving their names into the wood like stereotypical romantic teenagers.

Added DiffLines:

* Ruk in “What Are Little Girls Made Of” is twice the size of Kirk, and just keeps on groping him while throwing him around like a ragdoll, to the point that you can see Shatner is [[{{corpsing}} grinning]] and decides, for some reason, to spread his legs while he’s in the air.

Added DiffLines:

* Even airline commercials in the eighties got in on it, having Shatner and Nimoy act like an old married couple going on holiday and obviously echoing Kirk and Spock.


* "Amok Time" is an incredibly subversive episode of television. I will describe the plot in brief:

** It should also be noted that Andrew Robinson, the actor who portrayed Garak, has [[http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Elim_Garak#Background explicitly stated]] that he chose to portray Garak as a sexually ambiguous character, yet, to his chagrin, the series' writers chose to make Garak explicitly straight by the time the character gained some relevance.

** Special mention must go to the episode in which Garak leaves for an incredibly dangerous mission to find his former mentor, and Bashir sees him off. He asks if he can handle any business while Garak is gone, and Garak proceeds to tell him of a very special Cardassian data rod that Bashir should ''eat'' if Garak doesn't return. Bashir responds by giving Garak a going-away gift of exotic space chocolates.
