Ohmygosh. THANK YOU for the link to that Trek post!

This incisive, feminist defense of Original Trek - and, specifically, James Kirk - *absolutely* resounded with me. When I began watching ST:TOS last year, I was STUNNED at how much the actual show diverged from popular culture's collective memory of it: corny, aggressively sexist, and really really dumb. Turns out the show itself is (usually) none of those things!

By contrast, Reboot-Trek largely sucks because it's based on the popular memory of Original Trek, rather than the characters *as actually portrayed*.

What do extended blog posts or online articles qualify as, when nominating Hugo Awards? Because I can't get over how staggeringly brilliant this thinkpiece is - and, based on just how many people completely *misremember* the show, it's something that I think that a great many SF fans should read.
