    Three beautiful women sit around a campfire, blankets on their shoulders, hair mussed in the night breezes.. they have been singing a bit of a ditty moments before but as often happens with this trio a little snappishness comes into the picture.

    "I was trying to comprehend the meaning of the words." --T' Spock

    "It's a song, you green-blooded...Vulcan. You sing it. The words aren't important, what's important is you have a good time singing it." -- McCoy

    "Oh, I am sorry, Kitty. Were we having a good time?" -- T'Spock


    And playfulness abounds..

    Uh-oh! Can't call another T.V. show's woman "Bones," unless CBS wants to pay royalties! Looks like "Kitty" will definitely be McCoy's new nick, after all ...

    That's not actually true, is it? Because that would really be reaching, even in modern day's lawyer-rich environment.

    You might not be able to call the show Bones but I'm sure you could call the character that.

    I know that. That's why you couldn't use it again, but there's no reason you couldn't call Girl McCoy Bones as a character name.

    An opportunity presents itself, here ... what about their Gender - Switched Counterparts? Like, oh, let's say Edith Keeler and Zarabeth:

    It takes the bit about "eating meat" to whole new level of meaning. :lol:

    This is the best thing I've ever seen.

    (Though I would like Zaraben to be blonde.. but who cares he's lovely!)

    If we're gonna change the gender of ALL the characters, the Enterprise computer must have a male voice.

    I can think of John_Rhys-Davies (the Mirror Universe version could be Brian Blessed).

    How about Alan Rickman for the computer.

    Actually, the MU computer should be female.

    LMFAO @ ZaraBen

    Not every STAR TREK character MUST be reverse-sexed. I feel that Sarek & Amanda should remain as they are, for example - with one exception: Amanda is the parent T'Spock has issues with. Amanda has unrealistic expectations of her daughter, that cause problems ... pushing T'Spock towards the relatively placid Sarek and the serenity of The Vulcan Way. There are other ways to switch genders in STAR TREK without ... switching genders.

    Hey thread someone posted a pic of a gender swapped comic at some point, Girl Kirk was wearing the green wrap around shirt as the TOS mini dress. Now I can't find that post with the pic, anyone know which one it was?
