K Tempest Tumbles

I'm K. Tempest Bradford, a writer, blogger, tech geek, and all around nerd. I'm such a big science fiction/fantasy/speculative fiction fan that I even write it (I know, pretty hard core!).

I have a non-Tumblr blog and that's where the majority of my long-form posts go. This blog is for my more fannish activities, link sharing, and squeeness.

The single greatest cliffhanger of all time.

Try to imagine it.  It’s the spring of 1990, and “Star Trek: The Next Generation” has been on the air for three seasons - and is about to break the Original Series’ record by having a fourth season.

Denise Crosby (Lt. Tasha Yar) left the show before the first season was over.  Gates McFadden was summarily fired and replaced for season two, only to return in season three at the insistence of Patrick Stewart.  So change had always been a possibility.

There was no internet.  Which meant no spoilers like we now know them.  No set reports.  No speculation amongst the fans outside of conventions or groups of friends.  Which meant no way to cope with the anxiety, no bulletin boards to post “AHHH!  WTF?” on while you waited.

We may know now how it all turned out, but back then?  I’ve got friends who where trekkies in the day, and the summer of 1990 was full of anxiety!

AND THEN THEY MADE OU—oh wait, they ARE making out. AND THEN THEY TOTALLY DO IT. IN FRONT OF RIKER. AND DATA. ON THE BRIDGE. 

I have to say, I never really liked this episode. But this particular moment in the episode is really sweet. Jean-Luc has so many regrets, oh sadness!

and also what spastasmagoria said.

The tags speak truth, people!

Also: oh, Worf.

A lot of things can happen in twenty-five years. 

Before they got married, however, there was massive banging. Also, I believe Picard is really Wesley’s dad. JUST SAYING.

NO. You leave poor daddy Crusher that at least! I have always liked Wesley’s dad… in the books. I mean, what glimpses we got on the show were fine, too.

And Riker’s like… but I already serviced you…. oh wait. 

stop that.

(hehehe)

YOU SECRETLY DO NOT WISH FOR THIS.

Nah, I’m not a fan of pairing off Picard and Riker. Mostly because Riker doesn’t deserve all the tail he gets.

Oh please, like Picard didn’t have tail all over the ship. 

yeah but he wasn’t all gross about it.

true. NO hanging out in the community bathroom waiting for casual hookups. But that’s why he could just be like.. NUMBER ONE, MY READY ROOM. and BAM. I think Riker just gave him bjs anyways. 

Once again, your head canon beats anything actually on TV. :D
