Re: Favourite Trek Couple

I had to get to my 4th DS9 rewatch to really like Kira.. not that I hated her or anything but I generally found her between irritating and meh with the occasional sympathetic moment. I think Lwaxana and Odo would have provided a lot of humor with both actors playing off each other well. Kira and Odo were soooo earnest at times.. kind of Odo's nature + Bajorans

Of course Odo was much more interesting than any of her other boyfriends.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Well, yes, I certainly liked Odo better than anyone else Kira was with. But I was generally just kinda "meh" about her, whereas Lwaxana was at least fun. I did enjoy Odo and Kira's first kiss, though.

I haven't gotten to my 4th rewatch yet, maybe that'll help my feelings about Kira. ^_^

Unrelated: in a way, I kinda liked Dukat/Winn, because they were both sort of turds and insane and deserved each other.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

I would count realizing that was Dukat in her bed as one of my greatest ever Trek watching moments.. and yeah that was a helluva thing the way it played out, each as manipulative as the other.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

I thought it was funny when she says he doesn't know his place and he says, "I though my place was in your bed?" ^_^ Anyway, I was entertained by the whole thing, it was destined for failure for obvious reasons, but while it lasted, I thought they were well-matched in some ways.

It was just so excruciating that she didn't know..

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Odo and Lwaxana would've been a better couple than Odo and Kira. The scene where Lwaxana takes off her wig when she and Odo are trapped in the lift is such a beautiful moment.
I always wanted Lwaxana and the EMH Doctor to meet and have a little romance. I think she'd go for him, and the hijinx would've been hilarious.
I kept my previous answers to more canon couples, or at least possibilities, but I am a Kirk/Spock shipper.

Same.

I rewatched the first few movies just recently, and some of the stuff makes it hard for me to understand how anyone could NOT be a Kirk/Spock shipper.

On that note, I am currently drinking tea out of a mug with Kirk and Spock on it... ^_^

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

I know! I can just imagine her chasing him around sick bay.
I recall at some point in Trek that Lwaxana was speculating on hooking up with a man she thought might be a virgin, or am I imagining that? Just a random thought, since the Doctor would be, at least in the early years, as inexperienced sexually as it would be possible to be.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Except of course he would totally deny that. Because, subroutines.

I'm picturing her playing with what little hair he has and stroking his bald head and murmuring sweet nothings.. and him totally falling for it.

I want to put Spock with someone because he is one of my favorite characters, but can't really think of anyone I would put him with seriously. Same with Data... I want to put him with someone... if I think of anyone I'll edit this.
With Spock I love the pairing they made in the novels.

Spock and Saavik.

Feel free to ignore me but I always wondered why this points to KS? It it because its OK for Spock to give Kirk a backrub but not the yeoman? Is a man giving another man a backrub some sort of gay signal? I really honestly don't understand. To me this scene is perfectly innocent.
I apologise if I appear dense or naive.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Kirk/Spock (or Spock/McCoy)
Janeway/Seven
Miles/Julian (although I like this more as a friendship thang than a romance one)
The Doctor/Seven

All these ships, and did I ever get to see one measly canon kiss between any of them? Nope

To answer the question about the scene above - for me it's how Kirk *really* gets into it when he thinks it's Spock, but immediately grows uncomfortable when he realises it's the yeoman who's actually digging in. And that little shared look between Spock and Kirk - so slashy But hey, sometimes slash is in the eye of the beholder.
