I'm looking forward to seeing the second season of Discovery, with appearances from Pike, Number One, and Spock. I haven't watch the first season, but I may actually pay to watch this season.
So I missed this back in March - rewatch of the Cage
. Doesn't really say anything that hasn't been before.
In the comments, author Greg Cox says he has a Pike era TOS book coming out later this year, "Child of Two Worlds".
Thinking of The Cage...just one tiny detail. Pike makes that silly statement about not being used to women on the bridge. But last time I watched it I noticed that besides Cold and Number One there is one other woman on the bridge - an unnamed brunnette (who didn't get to utter a syllable onscreen) prints up something for Pike. I don't recall seeing her again at any other point (granted, with my bad eyes I could easily have missed her if she were in a brief background shot) and I didn't find her credited at all on imdb. So, I wonder who she was supposed to be and how Pike kind of overlooked that, gee, there's kinda lot of women on the bridge... That is just my very idle, pointless trivia for today.
It’s not about the competition
It’s not about the quality of the writing, the vidding or the graphics
It’s not about the better, the superior, the greater

As always if I've left stories off please comment with the info and I'll add them to the Masterlist.
OK, today I've had a darn virus and fever. So I've been laying in bed watching random things including "The Menagerie". And I noticed that Number One is wearing a ring on the 4th finger of her right hand. The blue nail polish is a lot more noticeable (anyone know if that color was rare in 1964? I think? So chosen to be exotic and futuristic?) But I've never seen anyone comment on her ring - either as part of costuming for character, or what the ring might mean/its history to Number One. (Inspiration for fanfic anyone? *grins evilly*)
Yeah, I know it is some crazy trivia, so forgive my frazzled fever brain. Brings to mind DeForrest Kelley, who wore his mother's ring. (Dang I love the man).
OK, going back to lolling on bed, moaning, groaning and carping (tho' my daughter did bring me a music box to cheer me up. Awesome!!) Just thought I'd throw this trivia point out there, see if anyone knew anything/wondered/had ideas.

Remember how some people here were sad that "The Cage" wasn't accepted as a Yuletide fandom? rarewomen
is offering us the chance to remedy that in their upcoming exchange. rarewomen
is an exchange focused on female characters who don't appear often enough in fan fiction, and Number One certainly fits the bill. No matter what, we will be able to request stories about Number One in the exchange, but if "The Cage" gets to be its own separate fandom independent of TOS, the likelihood of getting Number One stories is much greater.

Because I am a) crazy and b) have no will power and c) wanted someplace to post manips of Boyce and Barry, I give you newoldskool
, a comm for all things Star Trek
that feature Christopher Pike, Number One, Phil Boyce, and Caitlin Barry (in any and all combinations).
Mainly, there has been a (very small) explosion of lovely lovely Pike/Boyce, Boyce/Barry, and Number One/Barry in this last year, not to mention loads of lovely friendship fic. And it just felt like tho they may be the TINIEST of tiny 'ships, for characters who in some cases only exist in one episode and a handful of tie-ins, there might be a need to have a place where fiction, joy, and meta they can be archived.
So, erm... yeah.
Just a reminder that you can post any and all fiction/fan art/fan vids having to do with Number One to this comm! So break out those Number One gen stories, Number One/Kirk, Number One/Cait Barry, etc. and share them with your fellow fans. As you can see from the Masterlist
, this comm welcomes any stories about Number One, from TOS and AOS.
