Okay, TNG fans, time to get in the holiday spirit!  Make it so ... I mean Let It Snow!

Now that it's December, it's not too early for a Christmas reference: (also posting this in Atheist Humor)

Celebrate Christmas with an ornament about a man who died to save others, then rose from the dead to the great joy of many. [Spock and Kirk at the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan]

Considering Charlottesville, not that far off, GC!

Seen around the net (click to enlarge):

Spock: “If we don’t stop Donald Trump in 2017 there will be no Federation” / McCoy: “How do you intend to sneak into the white house, Spock?” / “Leave that to me, Doctor...” / Kirk, in SS uniform: “You sure no one will notice us?” Spock, also in SS uniform: “This was the standard clothing for the GOP at this time, Captain”

On Klingon religious beliefs:

“I prefer Klingon beliefs.”

“I suppose your gods aren't as cryptic as ours.”

“Our gods are dead. Ancient Klingon warriors slew them a millennia ago. They were more trouble than they were worth.”

Neat Star Trek news!  The US Postal Service is honoring the 50th anniversary of the original series with four Forever stamps:

For those of us who still use snail mail, I think this is pretty neat!

And I understand that I'm more picky than most people.  I just can't stand egotism, meanness, or stupidity.

Thanks Ruth.  Yes, I did mean the characters, not the actors.  If I had to blame someone, it would probably be the director.  It's usually the director that makes the final decisions.

It was not so much "meanness" as 1960's attempts at a little humor, and Spock was supposed to be half-human, a graduate of Starfleet Academy, and used to being around humans, or he wouldn't have been the First Officer.  Or a personal friend of Capt. Kirk. 

If the actors had strong objections to anything in the scripts, they had the right to have it removed or changed at any time.

A close friend of mine worked on TOS from the first pilot episode to the very last....He was DeForrest Kelley's stand-in, a "permanent extra," and an amateur photographer.  I used to see him, and talk to him, at the rink at night, and the only static he ever mentioned was the coolness between Shatner and Takei, and Bill's own bitterness when they hired Walter Koenig to take his place at the navigation console.

You could ask Bjo Trimble....she actually spent time on the set.  I didn't...I had to work during the daytime.

Idaho Spud made it clear that he disliked character's actions and dialogue, not the actors. Meanness was written into the script and approved by the director and studio head. *sigh*
