    While the original script was greenlit by Gene Roddenberry way back DECADES ago and this is a reworked version of that script, it’s not canon.

    “New Voyages” is a FAN series. A very well done fan series, but a fan series nonetheless. So, unfortunately, it’s not canon. Unless the makers of Stargate randomly say it is o_O.

    Ham, ham and more ham….
    Bring out the Plastic Oscar already.
    Although…bad gay acting is better than no gay acting.

    First of all, congratulations and cheers to the makers of “New Voyages.”

    I have been a fan of Star Trek since I was small, but their failure to feature gay relationships has gone from an oversight to being just plain stupid and ridiculous. A main point of Star Trek was to show the peaceful blending of different backgrounds and attitudes in the future. If the new film starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto doesn’t have an LGBT element, it deserves to fail. It has been a long time since Paramount made any Star Trek that reflected the principle I mentioned above. Without Roddenberry’s hokey-but-important principles, Star Trek is nothing more than a sci-fi shoot-em-up with–yes Wisebear–bad acting.

    I just wanted to chip in with a few corrections :

    * The episode is actually called Blood And Fire.

    * (Peter) Kirk doesn’t “enter into a relationship” in the episode ; he chose a position aboard the Enterprise to be with his fiance. If it makes any difference to anyone at all, they are later clarified to have fallen in love at Starfleet Academy – as study buddies – and neither has any previous romantic relationships to speak of.

    Though the bedroom scene is sweet, the equally / more significant scene is later on when James T. Kirk agrees to marry them (as that’s one of his captainly duties) !

    If they can just both manage to live through the second half of the adventure (no spoilers please, if anyone is in the know), then there might be a wedding to report soon…

    P.S. If you look up any of the review / discussion threads out there, the cast & crew are all endearingly enlightened in the face of some (sadly predictable) backlash against the episode.

    This clip is steamy and the actors are CUTE. But your post title is wrong: This is NOT CANON.

    In episode “Operation: Annihilate!” we learn that Kirk has but one one brother, one nephew and one sister-in-law, all of whom are, well, ANNIHILATED.

    Gay nephews would be cool, as is Phase II, but it’s just not even close to the cannon.

    Sorry. Still like it, though. Change your post title.

    I should have checked the Wiki before posting. I remember the sister in law dying and thought the kid died while unconscious but that must have been from some other show.

    Peter Kirk survived and is apparently gay and hot.

    Since members of the “away team” always get made into chutney, is it too much to think there isn’t a wedding cake in this kid’s future? Which is too bad. This episode is really funny; I’m guessing the honeymoon would be a laff riot.

    To be fair, the acting’s not much worse than the acting on the original series, but what could be?

    Wow, I just watched the “pilot” for this after watching Part 1 of Blood and Fire.

    Makes the acting in the original series, as hokie as it was, look Oscar winning by comparison.

    Painful to watch. Kirk looks like an Elvis impersonator, and most of them have this odd posture and a few beer belly things going on.

  13. Wheezy says

    This was supposed to be a part of the original episode “The Trouble With Tribbles”. I shit you not.

  14. Rey says

    WHEEZY:
    Sweet. I’d like to then see them cut Worf into this scene in their take on “Trials and Tribbleations”.

    I hate to break it to you boys, but Peter Kirk was referred to as being gay about 25 years ago in some of the graphic novels of Star Trek. He not only survived Operation Annilate, but attended Starfleet Academy and ended up commanding the USS Norfolk which was last seen heading off to the same Badlands that sent Voyager 70,000 light years across the galaxy…so probably Peter is out there getting some Species 8472 cock even now…

  16. says

    Wow, that is some god awful “acting”! There is better acting in Porn flicks!

    Okay, perhaps not but come on!

    Secondly, Peter should be grateful that his uncle didn’t send him with the Away Team since Peter was wearing a RED shirt. :p

    can you guys spell N-E-R-D? anyhoo, no one can surpass bill shatner for bad acting. these guys are sexy cute, so i’m not finding fault. but, i’m not a fanatic.

    Sorry to be a late poster on this but I just found out about the post by you through another blog. I dont know how I managed to overlook it since I have your widget feed on my blog, that’s right my computer died on my birthday. I need to give you more history about the actor that plays Peter Kirk.

    Bobby Rice also played Bajoran Ro Nevin on Star Trek Hidden Frontiers from season 6-8 and the first episode of their spin off series The Odyssey. Hidden Frontiers was produced from 2000-2008 based on the aftermath of the movie Insurrection and Bobby played the husband of Lt. Cmndr. Corey Aster who is played by filmright and director JT Tepnapa who is actually married to another actor on the same series Adam Browne. The three of them had a three way relationship dynamic going on for several years on the show. There is more on my blog if you want to take a look: http://frfozybearftwin.blogspot.com/2008/12/4-my-birthday-sthf-boldly-going-where.html

    I am currently adding your info in as an update to my original post Thank you for covering this but I wanted to let you guys know there is more to the story then just one fan fic but this is awesome to see unfold across the Star Trek Universe. And Bobby Rice has the talent and the predisposition to do it, since he already has with another character.

    I will say that the love scene was both intense and corny, especially when they fell out of bed, that is what my ultimate fantasy is made of, intense and cory passion.

    Thanks Again.
