Well we're gender bending the main cast in the Future of Trek forum so you can ship K/S/M if you want AND have it be all about girls.
Yes please.

Thanks for the warning. I was not too sure of the other F word, I will be careful next time.

borgboy: No I did not mean any harm. The only reason why I did not use the N word was because it has way more of a bad history especially with slavery. I just thought the word was light years more offensive than the other F word.

It comes from the word relationship. It means who you would like in fiction to be in a relationship. So in Voyager fandom you have the J/C shippers who were rooting for Janeway and Chakotay to end up togther and the J/7 shippers who were rooting for Janeway and 7 to end up together. People refer to themselves as shippers sometimes to indicate that is a big part of their fandom interests.

Even though I have two shipping preferences (J/7 and K/S) I don't call myself a shipper because I'm not really into relationships in fiction much, or romance.

Am I the only one thinking this thread is now officially a train wreck?

I'm not going to debate which word is worse. They're both hateful slurs, and regardless of which word is worse, they're both not appropriate to be used, especially in a public forum.
I'll take your word that you didn't mean any harm. Unfortuantely, sometimes people can offend and hurt other people without intent when they don't think about what they're saying. There are times when I have to put up with that kind of hate talk because to challenge it would be putting my safety and well being at risk, but nobody should have to hear that kind of talk here.
On the subject of gender swap, I remember years ago reading an offical Star Trek short story, not unlicenced fan fic, where the Enterprise crew is gender swapped for some bizarre reason, except for Spock, and it was pretty clear that he was attracted to lady Kirk. I wish I knew what that was from, it would be from the 70s or 80s. I'm amazed that got published, but like the slash-tastic novel Killing Time, these things slipped thru now and then.
I ship a lot of characters. Kirk and Spock, Troi and Riker, Picard and Beverly, Calhoun and Shelby. I'm not quite to the point where I think of myself as a Spock/Uhura shipper yet, but I'm warming up to them. If their relationship is handled well in the next movie I might get there.
Funny enough, I just started watching my new TOS blu rays, and I was pleasantly surprised by how flirtacious Uhura is with Spock in The Man Trap. And then Spock gets borderline emotional when the salt vampire attacks Kirk. Something for everybody

During that time period, there were two books published by Pocket (or whoever held the license) that were collections of fan fiction, under the titles New Voyages and New Voyages II. I think the editors were Marshak and Culbreath, but I can't connect to Memory Alpha to confirm. Could that be where you read it?

That sounds very likely. I log ago lost the book, I was a kid when I read it, but I'll try to track down a new copy. Thanks!

Someone posted a gender swap TOS comic (licensed) pic recently.. somewhere in this BBS Girl Kirk was wearing the green wrap around shirt as a short dress, it was rather fetching.

Re: Would you like for Chapel to appear in a new movie?

I'd love to see that if anybody can help me figure out where it is in the forums. What's the comic's name? I've just started collecting the IDW comics, but I haven't seen that.

So would Scotty/Enterprise be considered a ship?

I wouldn't have thought of that, but I'm sure somebody somewhere writes Scotty/Enterprise romantic fiction, so sure, whatever.

Lol. I go away for a couple of days and all hell breaks loose. Whatever happened to good old fashioned bisexual characters? The only thing wrong with Ivanova/Talia was that due to Andrea Thompson wanting to leave they shoe-horned the whole sexual element into just one episode and weakened its story impact.
But it's fun to rewatch and look for the subtext
This is it in a nutshell for me. If you put in stuff that's open to interpretation, the fans will run with it in whatever direction suits them and in some ways that's far more fun! Kirk/Spock speaks for itself - lol.

If Rand were to feature more heavily, all I'd want is the odd furtive glance or intake of breath. The fans would know what it was about. No need to waste dialogue or plot time on it, just a wink. If Trek goes gay, that would be enough for me as well.

Phase II did a nice gay plot point and it actually wasn't bad but there was a bedroom scene that went on waaaay too long. The best bit was one of the opening lines:

"Guess who?"
"Mr Sulu?"
"You wish."
