TO BOLDLY GO

For Friday Flash 55


KIRK TO ENTERPRISE

“Spock, The Federation wants to award you for a lifetime of genius”

“Illogical Captain.”

“But to be called a genius means you must possess…”

“…Insufficient data Captain.”

“Refusal will destroy them… You’ll have to be subtle.”

“Phaser on stun…?”

“What will you say to them, exactly?”

“Live long and prosper.”

“Beam me up Scotty…!”

“Fascinating…”

  17. Nice one. I like it. But I am a closet Trekkie.
    I've always thought live long and prosper was only the beginning. The complete saying would then be ... 'cos at present you're inferior.
    The intent is all in Spock's eyes :-)

  18. Thanks Anthony; He doesn't waste his words.

  19. And to think I watched the originals and Dr Who from the beginning - can life get any better! If you want to hear (yes hear!) or read my Friday 55 Flash fiction then click here. Hope you have a good weekend!

  20. Very Spockish with unconventional surprising logic - apparently - with a quiet twist! Good one!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks to;
    John; Dr. Who's just not the same any more...
    GT; A bit of licence used, to make him more open to interpretation.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh yes, memories of a wonderful series watched as a child, teenager and adult! The thought of grown men dressing like that! lol!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks to:
    Mrs. Nesbitt; It still prospers...
    Mama Zen; Spock - don't you just love him... ?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like the way it ends...
    Mine is here.

  26. So how many episodes did you take the quotes from? I'd say you could get them all in three.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Years of Star trek in a few lines! Fascinating indeed.

  28. Thanks to:

    Alice; Your'e probably right.

  29. Praise for your work would probably encourage you, thus contravening The Prime Directive. Still....

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thanks Ron; Stick to the Prime Directive; don't let those emotions conflict.

  31. Thanks Nessa; Even the 'Beam me up Scotty' mis-quote.
