Tumblr Thread: The Staggering Recklessness Of Humans In Star Trek

We can always bank on the brilliant, wandering minds of Tumblr to lead us down rabbit holes where various aspects of universes like that of the Star Trek universe, are obsessively overanalyzed. Basically, this Tumblr thread pays mind to the fact that humans are regularly equipped with technology that's light years beyond their understanding, and such a situation paves the way for complete chaos throughout space. It's really a fun way to shift your perspective on how other civilizations throughout space actually view humans in the Star Trek universe. Check out some more funny Tumblr gems unleashed from the depths over here

Tumblr Thread: A Vulcan Gets a Cat

Seeing our own actions through the eyes of a more coldly logical being lets us poke fun at the absurdity of our own lives. Plus it doesn't hurt that Vulcans are a fun concept to play around with anyway, as evidenced by this tumblr thread of a human on a Vulcan ship. Pet ownership is weird, and our relationship with cats in particular is fraught with unique and strange meaning. Especially when you get into specifics like this tumblr thread on how cats are just eloquent enough to be melodramatic.

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.

Twitter Thread: Star Trek and the Inhumanity of Gig Economies

Twitter user _danilo uses an example from Star Trek to explain some of the dangers of having an industry that lacks face-to-face interaction with its own workers. It's scary enough to imagine your job being done by a cold, calculating robot, but what if your boss's job was done by a cold, calculating robot? For something with more Star Trek fun and less technocratic dread, here's an awesome Tumblr post on how hard humans go in Star Trek.

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.

We get a truly comprehensive, impressive rant from Conan O'Brien's Associate Producer, Jordan Schlansky, on why Star Wars is better than Star Trek. His brain was clearly up for the challenge. Apparently the rant was supposed to end much sooner, but Conan and his team didn't cut him off. Thank goodness.

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.
