"To The Best Crew Any Captain Ever Had...

...Set a Course, for Home!"

This Blog Exists for the Trekkies of Tumblr to Share Their Thoughts and Feelings, Wishes and Memories About Either (or Both!) of the later Star Trek Series - those not set aboard a vessel named Enterprise - Deep Space 9 and Voyager.

Without Your Confessions This Blog Can Not Exist!

Guidelines/Disclaimer:
- Please keep your confessions brief (no more than a paragraph)
- Keep things clean and respectful (no outright smut and/or hate-speech permitted)
- Make your own spell checks! Generally speaking I won't alter your words unless needed.
- All Confessions are anonymous unless you specifically ask to be credited.
- I reserve the right to edit confessions to fit and/or not post repeats of the same sentiments.
- I generally tag posts about specific characters/actors with their names. To find them add /tags/their+name to blog URL.
- I do this for fun and won't abandon this blog. If I stop getting confessions, I'll let such be known!

[I was kind of emotional at the end of DS9 that the female changeling signed the peace treaty without a Weyoun at her side.]

[I can honestly say that I am not attracted to Seven of Nine because of her body. All physical attraction I do feel for her stems purely from her beautiful facial expressions.]

[After “Shadows and Symbols” I shipped Jake/Ezri hard. I still think that would have been a great way of emphasizing how much younger and inexperienced Ezri was than Jadzia, and it would have been an interesting wrinkle to Dax’s relationship with Ben Sisko. And it would have been better than just having Ezri hook up with Jadzia’s old flames.]
Opinions?

ds9vgrconfessions:

Curious for everyone’s opinions on something.  We get a healthy variety and amount of confessions.  We also get a fair number of repeat ones.  Certain sentiments (such as “I don’t like Chakotay” or “I love/hate Neelix” or “I ship Garak+Bashir”) have been shared numerous times.

Any objections to putting a moratorium on such oft-repeated sentiments?

OK, so we’re going to do the moratorium on oft-repeated sentiments. I’ll put a list up. We’re just trying to hash out what the list will be. Right now, off the top of my head…

"I hate Chakotay"
"I love/hate Neelix"
"I ship Garak+Bashir"
"I love Janeway"

Anyone have any others they see too often? ;)

[I really loved Bashir/Ezri, but then when they got together they focused so much on Jadzia—Bashir’s feelings for her, and Ezri’s memories of Jadzia’s feelings for him—that now I’m afraid that they broke up as soon as they both realised that Dax wasn’t Jadzia anymore.]

[I don’t think that Tom Paris gets enough love as a character. He has such a great arc over the course of show. Goes from the playboy ex-con trouble maker to the husband and father family man. Really pulls his life together, even with true to life speed bumps along the way.]

[I wanted Dax and Quark to get together really badly ever since the beginning because Quark was a complete ass to everyone, but with Dax he would soften up. It was the cutest.]
The real reason O’Brien left the Enterprise for DS9?

[I have an enormous love for DS9 and for Hogan’s Heroes. From the first time I saw Garak, I was just like, “Garak and Newkirk would get along like a house on fire.”]

[As an LGBTQ individual whose been told their whole life “its just a phase” and “can’t you just be normal?” amongst a plethora of other such things, it bugs the shit out of me when people “ship” characters against their established sexuality. Just because we don’t have many queer couples to root for doesn’t excuse that we’re doing the same type of bullshit to those characters as has been done to us by insisting they be who or what we want over who or what they’ve been written or played as!]

[My favorite relationship in all of Star Trek, canon or not, will always be Keiko and Miles O’Brien.]

[I agree with many people that DS9 was the best Trek because it was the only one that had a plot. Voyager thought it had a plot, but it actually only had a premise. TNG and TOS didn’t have premises; they had settings.]
