But what if everyone talked in an accent different from their own?
Highly illogical. An accent is a learned behavior stemming from the time a child begins to talk, a distinctive mode of pronunciation of a language, especially one associated with a particular nation, locality, or social class. It is unlikely that every single sentient being on the ship would speak with a different intonation, or would be able to correctly imitate their accent of choice.
Imagine the chaos if everyone on the bridge talked in a different accent..
That’s a damn stupid question. Most of us are already talkin’ in different accents. - McCoy
Aye! In case ye haven’t noticed, there is a pure spectrum of vocal antics ‘eere. - Scotty
Exactly. I think it’s rather lovely. It makes for a nice change, and there’s quite a lot to listen to. - Carol
It does make things a leetle chaotic alwedy, but it iz okay most of ze time. We’ve come to understand each other. - Chekov
My 19th birthday was Tuesday! Any advice? Think I can apply for starfleet yet? 😉
Absolutely. When you feel you’re ready, I’m sure Starfleet would be lucky to have you.
19. Hmm. Just have fun. Life moves really fast, and you’ll be 20 before you even realise it. That’s when the really hard part begins to happen, so 19 is a good age. At least, it is in my opinion.
Dr McCoy, you give the best and most inspiring advice wow thank you so much!!!
Just don’t get too used to it. I got other things to do, y’know.
Aww, Scotty, why've you gotta treat poor Keenser so badly? He's adorable, y'know. If you're not careful I think people might start liking him more than you. (Not that I don't love both of you, of course.)
Oh yeah, he’s adorable to you. But when it’s first thing in tha mornin’ and he’s off doing Lord-knows-what, and when it’s lunch and he donnee stop complaining about his wee little stomach aching for four hours until we eat, and when the shifts are over and I can’t get away to go to bed, THEN you all leave ME to deal with it.
I’ll admit, the wee pea pod does have some admirable qualities, but for the most part he’s a pain.
Chekov, say the word "revolving."
Hello~! Just wanted to say that :)
Have any of you just ever started randomly singing on the bridge when its especially boring? (If you do, might I recommend Bohemian Rhapsody? You could get everyone to sing! :D )
Yeah, we did almost get through the first half of We Will Rock You, but Spock came onto the Bridge, and we felt he would kill the buzz. - Kirk
Hang on, ‘we’? Captain, it was just you singing that. …And Sulu, clapping out the beat. It wasn’t that impressive. - Uhura
My Dad died of cancer two years ago and my mum has struggled with depression ever since. I really want to be a doctor but I'm really struggling with keeping up with work and everything else and I'm just really trying to stay on top of chemistry. McCoy do you have any advice?
Your motivation is the only thing that’s going to keep you going. Remind yourself of your goals, and work towards them. I think it’s great you want to become a Doctor. Obviously your father’s death has inspired you to help people, and that’s always the best reason for wanting to go into medicine.
Just never lose sight of the end goal, and it will happen for you. Your hard work will pay off.
The love of my life cheated on me and left me after I gave him my virginity. And now he's moved on to someone else, and I'm still in love with him. I have no idea why. I guess I'm just asking, in all of space you've seen, can you assure me there are better beings who will love me? Ones who care.
If he cheated on you, then why are you even wasting your time on the jerk? Nobody ever deserves to be hurt like that, no matter what good times they may have had. As soon as that other person crosses the line, it’s over.
There is someone out there made to love you. There are going to be so many people that will do anything to have you. But your number one focus in life should be you. Don’t rely on someone else to bring you happiness.
And don’t worry about the virginity thing. Your value lies in what you do, and who you are as a person. Not a physical attribute that can easily be broken.
