So they do have Love Instructors after all.
Another is the Picard and Data Jeep ride in Nemesis. After acting and doing things the way they did all those years, it came off as odd.
That's what I want to know. Where do they put the Tricorder? Or phaser? Or 8mm Phase cannon bazooka? Or the money to pay for the Love Instructors?
The Gilbert & Sullivan bit...
The forced mind-meld in The Undiscovered Country.
Easy. It wasn't necessarily a colony founded by Humans from the nation-state of Germany, but descendants of German emigrants and/or pseudo-Germanic aficionados who lived elsewhere on Earth for generations and later moved there. The way we celebrate St. Patrick's Day is technically Irish-American, not traditionally Irish.
I can buy some of the colonies being founded in this manner.
Edit: I just checked out the episode. I think you are reading too much into that little conversation between Ben and Cal. It was clearly during some kind of festival.
Lay off the sexism here, please.
Anyway, I didn't see it mentioned already but I'm surprised nobody mentioned how at the end of certain TOS episodes where the bridge crew laughed at Spock's expense.
I also cringe when we see people walk down the hallway outside a room where we can see the slope of the hull, meaning the extra shouldn't walking toward the slope...
Did someone mention "money?????"
You mean the Love Instructors are working for free???
I'm already signed up.
/\We’re assigning in you to the Tellarite home world...
That scene was, IIRC, Patrick Stewart's idea. Just look at his face - he's enjoying the hell out of it.
I see. It was funny with him with the goggles on too. Idk, the whole TNG series was so set on showing everything hovering and floating. And Picard was shown as being so prim and proper with tea and classical music and quoting Shakespeare all the time it seems so out of place for him.
I don't think Geordi wants our sympathy, but poor guy. The show didn't do him many favors in this area.
There's a scene in Naked Now where Geordi is drunk from the virus and Tasha is trying to escort him to sickbay. The conversation becomes a little cringy; He says 'Help me not to give in to the wild things going on in my mind'. Tasha says, 'But Geordi, my job is security'. Ok helping friends is more important. How can I help you?"
Then he makes a sort of pass at Tasha; 'I want to see in warm shallow sexy ways' (or something) while holding her face. Tasha says, "we'll talk about it later'. Later she runs into Data and totally takes him to bed.
From that and Hide and Q, it was obvious he had a crush on her. Must have been awkward when he found out about her and Data later on.
More than the stunt driver.
They should. Lovemaking is a skill like anything else and since they have holodecks handy that would be ideal. Of course, this is a family program so they would never show this.
Holodecks number one use would probably be, ahem, "lovemaking"
I'm getting a Monty Python flashback....
And a surrogate Enterprise???
And people walking around naked, no last names?
And space orgies? And pet tigers?
More sexism from TOS, Turnabout Intruder:
KIRK: "Her life could have been as rich as any woman's, if only. If only." (About Janice Lester never getting to be a female captain of a Starship)
That just sounded so wrong. I'm totally convinced they didn't let women become captains from that episode.
Nemesis.....take your pick. lol
Sulu getting all giddy around Ilia and her explaining that she'd "never take advantage of a sexually immature species".
Separate names with a comma.
