“A starship captain’s most solemn oath is that he will give his life, even his entire crew, rather than violate the Prime Directive.”
And some will sit proudly atop Christmas trees to boot.
Redditor Wizard_Glick created this awesome Star Trek Christmas tree topper featuring Captain Kirk posing thoughtfully in his captain’s chair.

hollywood has given us two, equally false, notions of marriage. either it’s the joining of two gorgeous young people “destined” to be together, or as a wheezing and cold institution inhabited by miserable and middle-aged wheezebags, usually meant to illustrate a counterpoint to the love the gorgeous young couple in the film will share once their destinies are realized, and they are able to finally be together against all odds. yawn. boring. wrong. …
it’s doing laundry. it’s paying bills. cleaning the kitty litter. marriage is a hundred thousand tiny tasks you share. it is peeling vegetables and changing lightbulbs and giving each other quick kisses and wishing for each other “a nice day.” it is coming home and smelling dinner cooking, and running out on a cold winter night for antacid because she has a headache and cannot sleep. sometimes marriage is being pissed off at each other for weeks at a time. and sometimes it’s walking into your children’s bedrooms and watching them sleep.

(I love everything about this quotation, but I am concerned that an antacid will not effectively treat Michael Ian Black’s wife’s headache. And then he is going to come home and be like, “I ventured out into the frigid night to get you this Pepcid AC,” and she will be like, “I have a headache, not heartburn,” and then he will have to go back to CVS and there will be a bit of mutual resentment even though everyone is trying to do right by everyone else. This is also marriage.)
Imagine a library filled with every book in the world, none of them have titles on the cover and the pages are blank, but when you open one you are instantly transported to the world within the book. You get to live the story as any character for as long as you like. And when you come out of the story, almost no time has past in the real world
