Gene Roddenberry (x)
ARE YOU FUCKING SHITTING ME. Where has this been hiding? I mean first of all holy shit, it’s about 12 minutes into the video, Roddenberry says he had to make the characters from the 23rd century have the values and morals of the 20th century so he could bill it to a 1960s audience. I mean, the show was already being so progressive, showing a future in which we obtain global peace, money does not matter, race doesn’t matter, and feminism is not even needed because guess what everyone is equal, no biggie. This is interesting enough, but combine this quote with that other fucking famous K/S quote, and it gets SUPER INTERESTING. Don’t remember the other quote?
"…the only difference being, the Greek ideal— we never suggested in the series— physical love between the two. But it’s the— we certainly had the feeling that the affection was sufficient for that, if that were the particular style of the 23rd century."
He said that shit after Wrath of Khan came out, and this interview came out in 1984, the year of THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK. Gene Roddenberry designed Kirk and Spock to be an interspecies love story, you can’t convince me otherwise.(via bigmamag)
