Tumblr Thread: The Human on A Vulcan Ship

In typical tumblr fashion, we've got a situation that upends ye olde sci fi tropes with the prospect of a regular person chilling on a ship full of cold, calculating Vulcans. It's reminiscent of this study into human nature featuring a space-worthy weaponized Roomba. Tumblr has its own Star Trek ideas, like these questions Tumblr had about gay Klingons.

Tumblr Thread: Aliens Fear of Humans Is a Galactic Feels Trip

The internet has a whole lot of fun with the idea of humans and their role in the universe. Take for example this thread about how humans will pack bond with anything. It's in a way flattering to read sci fi about humans being intergalactic orcs or killing machines, and this one kicks off with a bang.

Tumblr Explores Human Nature with "Knife Roomba"

One of Tumblr's favorite things to do is expound on human nature in discussions, essays and threads about the role human beings as team "hold my beer" in the universe. It's generally regarded, out of self interest and flattery that we're basically badass space orcs. These kinds of discussions go on to describe Earth as the type of planet whose wildlife could fight off an alien invasion. So in this context, the idea that a human ship would have a knife Roomba affectionately referred to as "Stabby" not only makes perfect sense, but sort of makes us want to get one right now.

Dr. Tanya Harrison laid out how a lot of us are dealing with self-isolation but in terms of Star Trek: The Next Generation characters. Sadly, more than a few of us are Geordis.

Tumblr Thread: Why No One on The USS Enterprise Has Pockets

Leave it to Tumblr to ask incredibly specific questions about the world of Star Trek and then rationalize the living hell out of them. It's kind like the time Tumblr had questions about gay Klingons. Tumblr asks interesting questions that make for good sci fi, like this thread about an alien invasion fought off by wildlife.

Tumblr thread on why no one in Star Trek has pockets | jimkerk least realistic thing about star trek is starfleet uniforms don't have pockets and nobody complains about crisisoninfintefandoms My instinct is agree with this, but like really think about No money, no credit cards, identification is all vocal/ fingerprints/retinal, so no wallet. Again, doors are voice activated, or just unlocked by entering code. No keys.
