What the hell has that got to do with Odonna, Baba?
What is a Baba?
Baba is Capt Adama's screen name on Wordforge.net.
It's easier to type.
Okay, I watched Mark of Gideon last night - nope, no sex. There was some smooching, then Odonna took sick and collapsed. Hope Jim didn't take it personally.
If you count Miramanee's unborn child, then three.
Kirk only had sex in three episodes - Bread and Circuses, The Paradise Syndrome, and Wink of an Eye - and in none of the movies.
He flirted a lot, and kissed quite a few; but he didn't get laid anywhere near as often as some people think. Riker was ten times the lady-killer that Kirk was. I think even Picard might have had more.
Don't forget the flashback to Dagger of the Mind where Kirk is carrying Helen Noel back to his quarters. I'm pretty sure he showed her the captain's log before that was over...
That was a dream that Helen put in his mind. He never did that. All Kirk did was talk to her about the stars. I guess when you saw it the ep had been cut pretty badly.
...And I'll still argue that there was no sex in "Bread and Circuses". Sex was offered to Kirk, but since it was done by his enemies, in order to make his "last night on (this copy of) Earth" nicer, he would have had every reason to refuse:
- He wouldn't do the bidding of his enemies
- He couldn't trust Drusilla not to be one of those enemies
- He didn't appreciate slavery to begin with
- He wouldn't think of this as his last night alive, and certainly wouldn't want his enemies to think that.
Odds are he and Drusilla talked about the politics of revolution all night long.
There is room for debate here, though. Remember when Kirk and Odonna left the bridge, not seeing the two dozen faces against the screen? They go to commercial. When the episode returns, Kirk and Odonna are walking out of his cabin.
While it seems odd that Kirk would take the time to get laid in the shortly after finding his ship abandoned except for one girl who can't give him any answers, it is Kirk and it is the third season. So, anything is possible.
If they did do the serious, then this would be a good candidate for another child since the Gideon folk didn't believe in contraceptives.
Don't forget Mirror, Mirror. It's pretty safe to assume he and Marlena got busy after she was done oiling her traps.
He probably got some trim in Elaan of Troyius, but since Trek didn't dabble in porn until the K/S ladies began writing, you can only go by hints and implication.
A security guard did cop a good feel in Turnabout Intruder, but to be fair, Kirk was trapped in Janice Lester's body. So I don't think we can count that.
I do agree that Kirk has a MAJORLY unearned reputation as a sex machine.
I don't think so. In Mirror, Mirror Kirk was kind of worried about getting a knife stuck in his back, although he obviously found her attractive. In Elaan of Troyius he was too busy with the Klingons to do anything, and in any case was trying to fight the effects of her tears. I don't remember that in Turnabout Intruder, but my read based on Kirk's character is the Security Guard would have just made Kirk angry. You can be sure he got himself in a whole shitpot full of trouble once Kirk was back were he belonged.
Baby Kirk: "Da-da?"
Thanks for clearing that up. Haven't seen the episode in quite a while.
"I ten years old! I - I used to nine, but now I is this many!"
You're quite welcome.
That reminds me of Bill Cosby's old "Little Jeffrey" routine.
"I four years ooooooooold!"
In Mirror, Mirror, Marlena was pretty disgusted when Kirk got a call from the bridge right before fun was to commence; I don't think they got a chance. But the kiss he gave her in that scene was really hot. The hottest one Kirk had in Trek.
1,771,561. That's starting with one child, and an average intimate relationship of ten every twelve hours. After three years.
Oh, so THIS is the guy that everybody keeps thinking is me?
Note to anyone reading this: The names are a coincidence.
Forbin: I mean no disrespect, but could you call him something else? A lot of people right here use Baba as a short form of my name. So if you use that name here, most people will think you're talking about me.
And whatever the hell this Wordforge is, I am not a member there, I have never been there and have no plans to go there.
Long story short: If you see the name Babaganoosh anywhere else but here, don't automatically assume it's me.
(Now I'd like to think that there are so many MXC fans that people on other boards chose that name for that reason, but it's probably not that easy. Maybe they just really like pureed eggplant. )
Separate names with a comma.
