Follow TV Tropes
Not so familiar yet with all the subtleties of editing, but shouldn\'t tropes that only appear on very specific episode\'s appear on that episode page and removed from the general page?
It is my opinion that tropes that appear here should only be the ones that appear in at least two episodes...
Please comment so we should move them!
The following entry has been moved here since the Planet Starship page has apparently been deleted.
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 startrek.com website doesn't list it, in a very specific contrast to the version played by Zoe Saldana which does list it. But does startrek.com 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.
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."
