* EveryoneCanSeeIt: ...but But apparently some need to have it pointed out to them. Hence, the show's existence.


The premise of the show is "A Logical Discussion of Kirk/Spock". The host, [[http://www.fanfiction.net/~brittanydiamond/ Brittany Diamond]], is the author of the well-known ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5105759/1/AnalyzationCommentary_of_TOS_for_KS Commentary of TOS for K/S]]'', an analysis of every episode of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries the series]] with [[ShippingGoggles Slash Goggles]] firmly in place, and the show is essentially an extension of the analysis. Unlike most slash fans, however, Brittany makes a point of having evidence for every point she makes. Instead of saying, "How can you not see it!?," she splices the relevant clips into her show and dissects motives, thought processes, and physical and verbal expressions to make her case. With training as an actress, she can also refer to the choices the actors must have made to produce those expressions and look at every scene with both a director's and actor's eyes.

* SeriesHiatus: The show went on one starting in January 2010, most likely due to The Captain serving as... well... TheCaptain of the ''USS [[PortmanteauCoupleName Spirk]]'' team in LiveJournal's Ship Wars. She ''finally'' returned on 16 February 2011 in audio-only format, due to RealLife eating her camera. [[ShesBack TSC returned in full on 24 November 2011]].

''[[http://www.youtube.com/user/theshipscloset The Ship's Closet]]'' is a [[PodCast vidcast]] on Website/YouTube.

However, she also makes point of having fun with it; it is not a dry clinical study but a celebration. Only this time, the celebration has solid proof behind it.

The first episode premiered on Kirk/Spock Day, September 15, 2009.

!Tropes in ''The Ship's Closet'' and ''Analyzation/Commentary'':
* CatchPhrase:
** "Yay 60s."
** "Octoliebe!" - bastardization of 'Ach, du liebe!'
* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler: That mug of water is only there for her eventual SpitTake.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Brittany herself.
** "Not wanting the sky to be blue doesn't make it green."
** [regarding the "eyesex" scene in 'Miri'] "Apparently, there's something on the ship that Spock wants to get back to, and it has something to do with Kirk. [in a tone drier than the Sahara] Why ''whatever'' could that thing ''be''???"
** "I've seen ''gay porn'' that wasn't this queer!!"
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: ...but apparently some need to have it pointed out to them. Hence, the show's existence.
* FanNickname:
** Captain Sexy Pants: Kirk
** The BAMF Trio: Kirk, Spock, and [=McCoy=]
** Brittany herself is commonly referred to as "Captain" by her fans.
* HeldGaze: "This, ladies and gentlemen, is eyesex. Unmistakable, blatant eyesex. That Kirk is reciprocating." -- On the 'eyesex scene' in "Miri"
* HoYay: The focus of the show. And oh boy, is there ever. GeneRoddenberry [[WordOfGod said so.]]
* InstrumentalThemeTune: The opening credits are set to the instrumental opener of Music/{{Muse}}'s "Starlight". After her return from the show's hiatus, she introduced a new credits sequence set to "Supermassive Black Hole" by the same band.
* TheNicknamer: Brittany again. Witness - Boris and Natasha (the guys with the bells in ''Amok Time''). The Snarky Metal Vagina of Time Travel (The Guardian of Forever). The Angry Icicle Condom of Fire (the planet-killer in that one episode). The... I'll just stop now, shall I?
* NoBisexuals: Starkly averted. She makes a point of stressing that, yes, Kirk and Spock ''have'' been legitimately attracted to women in the past, ergo, they're not gay, they're bisexual. The bisexuals among her audience proceeded to cheer loudly.
* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: She uses one whenever Kirk and Spock do something particularly slashy.
* OnceAnEpisode: She closes every show with a "Yay 60s!" segment, which is a particularly spectacular SpecialEffectFailure.
* OtakuSurrogate: Also Brittany.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: On the conclusion of her "Amok Time" commentary - "''GAYNESS ITSELF IS'' '''''NOT. THIS. GAY!'''''"
* {{Squee}}: "...and then I have to get a mop because there's squee all over my frickin' floor." ~Brittany regarding '[[HoYay The Sickbay Scene]]'
* SeriesHiatus: The show went on one starting in January 2010, most likely due to The Captain serving as... well... TheCaptain of the ''USS [[PortmanteauCoupleName Spirk]]'' team in LiveJournal's Ship Wars. She ''finally'' returned on 16 February 2011 in audio-only format, due to RealLife eating her camera. [[ShesBack TSC returned in full on 24 November 2011]].
* ShipperOnDeck: Brittany makes an excellent case for [=McCoy=] being one for Kirk and Spock.
* ShoutOut: The name of the webcast comes from ''TheCelluloidCloset''.
** [[WillAndGrace OK, so let me get this gay.]]
** [[{{Firefly}} Captain Sexypants]]
* TemptingFate: In the 'Amok Time' special. "...fortunately I've been a part of the Kirk/Spock fandom for awhile now, and I can handle anything they throw my way." Cue epic, epic SpitTake.
* YaoiFangirl: Some, but certainly not all, of the show's fans.
