Now for me, McCoy is the best husband material. He seems like he'd make a fantastic husband.
I asked my husband to play Kiss-Marry-Cliff with the main three one time, and he said, "Kiss Spock, Marry McCoy, Cliff Kirk."

I said, "But WHY? Why is the important part."

My husband said, "Kirk is married to the ship, and Spock is married to Kirk, so McCoy's the only one who's actually emotionally available."

My husband is a smart man (though I reserve the right to drool over Spock. )

Re: Most Attractive Male

Of course the emotional unavailability is what appeals. You will tame Kirk or open up Spock, but there's McCoy ready with all his foibles and feelings and you don't have to win him in any way.

I'm getting fonder and fonder of McCoy just thinking about this.

Good thinking on that on your husband's part, but I'd swap Spock and McCoy.

I'm also emotionally unavailable so I think me and Spock would get along pretty well. (Polyandry doesn't sound too bad to me either, if these are the choices... )

But yeah, now this thread is making me reconsider a bit about McCoy...

Re: Most Attractive Male

I have kind of swooned all day thinking about what a great husband McCoy would be.
The original McCoy is great, but swap him out for Karl Urban's McCoy and he gets most attractive and best husband material votes for me.
I thought Urban did a great job bringing his version of McCoy to life. The best of the recasts, although I'm very fond of Quinto's Spock too.
I have an autographed picture of Urban shirtless as Cupid, with Alexandra Tydings as Aphrodite from Xena. I got it from AT at Dragoncon years ago, she personally signed it for me, and Urban, who wasn't there, had pre-signed a bunch of them. So my crush on Urban pre dates his Trek involvement, but once you marry those looks with McCoy's personality, he's perfection.

Re: Most Attractive Male

^Gotta say I prefer the originals. Also, Quinto's NuSpock needs more eyeshadow. My cousin has been swooning over the nuTrek cast since the movies came out, though, especially nuKirk, so we have been arguing over that for a while. ^_^

Re: Most Attractive Male

I prefer Quinto's Spock (as in, I lust for him) but with the others I prefer the originals.

That said all six are pretty great

I'd like to hang out with TOS McCoy for a while.. listen to his yarns.

Oh TOTALLY agree about the eyeshadow, that would up the hotness insanely!!

I like Quinto-Spock, but I only lust after Nimoy-Spock.

I saw a youtube clip where someone asked Quinto about the eyeshadow and he claimed he was actually wearing some but it was much lighter, if I recall correctly. Bums me out though, in any case. I sure as heck didn't notice it, if he was wearing any. He has bigger eyes than Nimoy; he would've looked very pretty.

Yep, yep, yep, yep, yep! (You may conclude that I agree. )

I think the eye shadow helps to make Spock look alien and mysterious; he looks too human without it. I think Quinto's Spock is too human in general, partly because of how he's written and partly because of how he's played (but whether how he's played is the result mostly of Abrams' choices or of Quinto's, I don't know).

Of course, this is the TOS section, so we should probably get back to discussing the originals, rather than comparing them to the new guys.

Well, in that case, I'll just talk about how much I like the eyeshadow. ^_^ It goes well with the color of his shirt, also.

So, are we supposed to think that Vulcan men wear make-up, and Spock carefully applies eye shadow every morning, or are we supposed to think that the skin around Spock's eyes is naturally blue? I admit that I'd been thinking the latter -- and thinking that the eye shadow helped Spock look more alien -- but I suppose it could be the former. Different cultures are different, after all.

Haha. Well, I always assumed he had blueish eyelids, but the idea of him in front of a mirror with a makeup brush in the morning is very amusing.

Re: Most Attractive Male

Its Nimoy Spock for me.

The most attractive in the new movies in Karl Urban's McCoy.
Why didn't we get to see him in his underwear? Its so unfair.

Aside from Urban I don't fancy any of the new team. Maybe I'm getting old,

Re: Most Attractive Male

It's kind of amusing that when Mr. Nimoy was discharged from the service in December, 1955, he tried to go back to his acting career but had trouble finding an agent; lots of agents said, "You're not handsome enough*."

A dozen years later, women would be throwing themselves at the guy, and Isaac Asimov would be writing "Mr. Spock Is Dreamy" in TV Guide.

I guess it takes elegantly pointed ears, gracefully upswept eyebrows, and stylish blue eyeshadow to bring out his latent beauty.

I think Kirk had man-boobs in TOS. It put me right off when he didn't have his shirt on. I'm amazed that people like him shirtless.

Still while I don't fancy him myself I can admit he has more adult charisma than anyone else in Star Trek.
You consider that manboobs?
Yep, worst use of the term---ever.
