Also, holograms.

But Tuvok was a lot older and knew what to expect, had years of experience with meditation etc.. Holograms would not have worked as well for a younger first time pon farr I don't think.

That was hilarious and deliberately played up I think by the actors. That was such a great bromance, so natural and amusing with the darts, the drinking, the alamo.
I was happy when I read an interview with Siddig and he said they actually have gone out to a bar or something and just had fun. They did not, however, play darts. But if I recall correctly they have gone out drinking just to shoot the shit.

But yeah definitely my second fave bromance of Trek. Second to K/S.

Ah, yes, I forgot about holograms. But I agree, I would guess it wouldn't work for a young, first time pon farr.

Would have been funny to see Vorik with a hologram of B'Elanna.

I bet that meditation option is just a lie they tell young Vulcans to make them feel guilty when they can't pray the pon farr away.

Sounds likely to me, yeah. If you could just meditate every time, it sure would take away its usefulness as a plot device, also.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

At the end of Amok Time, Spock is surprised that the combat got rid of the blood fever madness. I guess the combat is so rare that Spock wasn't aware of that side effect. I do kind of love T'Pring. She's kind of a cold bitch, but it works for her. I love her exchange with Spock as she explains how no matter how things worked out she was going to get Stonn, and Spock compliments her on her logic, but warns Stonn he may not be as happy with T'Pring as he was wanting her. I can't say I blame T'Pring for not wanting a husband who's never going to be there, but she was still pretty cold to drag Kirk into this, but her logic is faultless. Why risk Stonn when she could use Kirk who means nothing to her? Right now I'd watch a whole series about T'Pring. Brilliant episode, one of the best.
Spock's burst of joy at finding Kirk alive is pretty great, you need that so you can really appreciate Spock's repressed demeanor most of the rest of the time. Kirk's smug pleasure at Spock's reaction is pretty cute. This episode is slash heaven.
Thank you teacake for the video link! That's a really great video.
Have you ever seen this Kirk/Spock pon farr video set to NIN's Closer?

^"I want your leather studded kiss in the sand" to Kirk and Spock wrestling in the Amok Time arena

My god that made me happy.

Yeah, it was a fun episode. Now I want to watch it again. It always makes me feel bad for nurse Chapel, though.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

You created a monster with those vids since I'm still watching slash K/S videos.
Quinto's Spock just kills me I love his performance so much. Yeah, I slash new K/S too. Heck, I slash Prime Spock with new Kirk. Whatever, it's all good.
I found this cute little video, K/S set to the song "I touch myself". This video really put a smile on my face, in addition to the obvious suggestive scenes, there's also some really sweet and cute moments.

and then a brilliantly edited video set to "Girlfriend"

Oh gosh yes. I feel so bad for Chapel here. She's so hopeful and sweet making Spock soup, and because she's so concerned about him and there for him so much she gets treated awfully. I guess he was trying to make it up to when he asks her to make him soup again, and poor Chapel is so happy she cries. The first time I saw this I thought that Chapel and Spock might fall in love later, but I was a little kid then. It's even sadder that nothing comes of that, for her.

Yeah, first time I watched TOS I was rather disappointed about that, I thought it was setting it up for something in the future, but no...

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

I have read that an early version of Plato's Stepchildren, intended as a series finale, would have Kirk ending up with Uhura and Spock with Chapel. If that had happened, I think the "you can make me soup" bit would be seen as building towards that. So my take on that is that there may have been intention for a Spock/Chapel pairing to happen down the road and it just didn't happen. If the show had gone another year, maybe something would have come of it. I'd be surprised if at least some of the writers weren't thinking that Spock and Chapel were endgame and would get together at the end.

Do you have a citation for that?
