Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

I don't know, Shat. But see, the cuteness is just the beginning of it, isn't it? OK, now ... are you ready for this:

Cute Kirk transforms herself into Hot Kirk, all tarted up in a tight, short skirt. She approaches Keeler and Spock, fully aware and expectant of what's about to transpire: seizing the opportunity to
enter STAR TREK into the realm of The Sci-Fi Musical!



SPOCK: (Upon seeing the tarted up Kirk) ... Captain!
KEELER: I got the chills ... and they're multiplyin'! It's electrifyin'!!!
KIRK: (To Ed Keeler) You better beam up ...
KEELER: I better beam up!
KIRK: ... because I need a man ...
KEELER: You NEED a man!
KIRK: ... and my heart is set on you!
SPOCK: But, Captain - the past we must undo.

(Then, all together, dancing to the beam-up point):
Woo-Hoo-Hoo ... HONEY!!!

Hey!!! You know what? I'm liking this idea ... another good reason for watching!

I thought those compliments on hair/clothes/shoes/etc meant the girls HATE each other's guts
Depends on how it's delivered. "I love your shoes" can be a genuine compliment, "I love your shoes – they look so comfy" not so much.

Although girls who really don't like each other often will not beat around the proverbial bush. I had a friend once who in the correct state of inebriation would actually look someone up and down and say "Nice hair, b*tch." Yikes.

Not to get off topic, but Kirk in the green toga makes me wonder, is there any reason why Kirk sometimes wears that green toga shirt instead of the standard yellow shirt? Does it serve some purpose, is it supposed to be a dress shirt vs everyday shirt or something?
The green wraparound was looser than the gold/avocado pullover and didn't hug Shatner's gut as much.
I'm rewatching season one, and Kirk gets shirtless fairly often, and at this point's he's fit and in his prime,and looks good shirtless. He didn't have a gut then.
I rebuttal your remarks.

The Green Wrap-Around, EXPLAINED!

I think having Kirk seeing Spock in the hallway, first thing in the morning, and saying something like, "Oh, I love your hair! That looks cute on you ..." kind of thing would be great. But there seems to be a lot of resistance to anything like that. .
If course there's resistance to that, because that's reducing the characters to stereotypical ideas of female behavior, and second, it's out of character: "Where's the logic is commenting on my hair?"

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

Ha! teacake I love the green tunic poster. I still don't understand what purpose it serves.
Kirk all but got naked tonight in my viewing of What Are Little Girls Made Of, and I maintain that he's still looking good. If he's showing off that much skin I don't think anybody was worried about his gut at that time.

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

It's hardly a gut in TOS, really just a lack of buffness IMO

But I'm partial to Mr. Shatner

We'll just give the line to Bones, then. Upon noticing Spock's IDIC beret, Bones will sashay up to her and deliver the line, adding, "... and I love your IDIC, Spock! Where did you get that?" As Spock tries to outpace her, throwing Bones poisonous darts, with her eyeballs.

Spock in a beret is like the worst possible case of fusion food.

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

Alright, then. Perhaps...
perhaps, an IDIC hair clip would suffice?
How about this? It's only a little one ...



Ah, yes ... those flirty Vulcan fashions ...

Any Spock or just Lady Spock? Berets or Barrettes?
