What were/are your three favorite subjects in school?
History, literature, and technology. I also loved art classes, but the first three I enjoyed the most due to being in my "element" in those classes.
What era or recent decade would you fancy yourself living in?:
I would like to be in the mid-60s or 70s, when the technology that we are familiar with, such as computers, was just coming out. It would have been awesome to be in a company that researched and developed those things we use so often these days.
Otherwise, I'd stick in the era that I am currently in.
How would most people describe you?:
I'm not sure. A lot of people at work tell me that it's nice to see or work with me because I am always so cheerful, polite, hard working, willing to help out, and agreeable, not to mention that I go extra lengths for people sometimes, and really do want to help when there's a problem. A lot of my friends have said that I'm really nice and accepting, and they like my encouragement and optimism... On the other side, I am sure most of them will admit that I can be too stubborn, moody, sometimes pessimistic, and say that when it comes to accepting help or going home when I am not feeling good, I refuse to.
Would you describe yourself the same way? Why or why not?:
On the negative sides, yes; on the positive sides, I will agree to being polite and hardworking because I don't like to cause problems and being polite helps with that, and I like to earn the money that I make. I will say, though, that I am a lot more pessimistic than they think, and I don't deserve their compliments.
If you could have dinner with anyone of your choosing, dead or alive, who would it be?:
I would like to be able to spend some time with my grandfather, my dad's dad, who died when he was six, and my great-uncle, who were apparently quite a pair of troublemakers back in the day. My family is currently worrying about the state of heaven because, I quote, "Oh no! They're back together again!"
I'm sure that if they had lived longer and were closer to us location wise, we would have had a blast, since I was very much like them when I was little. Always getting into messes and falling out of trees.
What is your favorite quote, and why?:
"Heaven help those who don't help themselves first."
It's straightforward, to the point, and reminds me that there is not always going to help me or get me out of a tight situation, and that I need to be strong by myself if I want to have any sense of self-respect, let alone anyone else's respect.
Would you honestly risk your own life to save a complete stranger?:
Yes. I would.
When confronted with your doppelganger from another universe, how do you convince those around you that you are the original?:
I don't know, something logical. Maybe that question, "If you were the other whoever, which one of you would you say was the real whoever?" or I would accidentally reveal something about myself that would set me apart from my fake that only those who knew and really cared about me would be able to recognize.
When spending the evening with your significant other, is your communicator on, or off?:
It would be off if I was completely assured that it would not be needed. However, if I wasn't, I would keep it on, but the volume low.
Someone is threatening to harm your best friend with a weapon. How do you diffuse (or escalate) the situation?:
See if I can approach the person and calm them down to the point that I can get them to give me or toss away the weapon, and then punch his lights out, or get the person angry at me instead and allow my friend to escape, because while I cannot guarantee their safety in my hands, I can certainly guarantee mine.
The current away team has been taken hostage and their communicators are not working. What do you do to try to rescue them?:
First, assess the situation and them deem it logical or not to send someone down there for a rescue mission and diplomatic salvaging, or if it would be better to locate and beam them back up, or better to take an offensive position and attack/rescue our team that way. It really depends upon the situation.
STAR TREK IX
Which character do you relate to the most, and why?:
Being a Trekkie since I was young due to my father introducing TOS to me when I got bored of cartoons, I have always identified with Spock: the one who feels a great need to be in control of himself and his emotions completely, and who has a problem with social interaction due to internal conflicts, including a tendency to think at a higher level than most of his peers and be too serious most of the time, many of them being when it was inappropriate.
This was reinforced in IX with this younger Spock who had yet to learn or forge half of the lessons and friendships that Spock Prime did, and thus looked down on others, much like I did when I was younger. The way he interacted with others in the movie was pretty much was how I interacted with others until I was about fifteen or so. His problems with dealing with emotions and death are also the same that I still currently have at times. Neither of us really get why people act the way they do half the time, especially if it's something "illogical", or as I like to call it, "stupid," and many things that are considered the social normal also baffle us.
And like both versions, I am only close to a small group of people, and can be very stubborn at times, but I will do anything for those who break down my walls and wiggle into my heart.
What color is your regulation uniform/which Starfleet department do you work for?:
Given my love for technology and liking to have my hands busy, I would most likely be in Engineering, though I would refuse to wear the women's dress. Someone seeing my underwear is not something that I want to have to worry about as I duck and dive under consoles to rewire things. I've also always had an easier time learning or dealing with technology than half of my peers, and they always seemed to instinctively flock to me for help. Maybe it was because after they went "Ahh! This is doing this!" I'd always yell out what to do, if not push them aside and fix it myself.
The bridge is empty and the captain's chair is unoccupied. To sit, or not to sit? If yes, do you spin around?:
I would be faced with a bit of a dilemma. A part of me would want to sit and spin, and another would tell that side to shut up and get back to work. If anything, I would find the captain, ask him how well it spins around, and then ask if I could test it.
The Enterprise has been contaminated by an airborne aphrodisiac. Who do you end up shagging?:
I would be locking myself in my room and reading the most boring or distracting book I could find, and barricade my door from both sides if possible as well.
An extra trivia: seeing how alike Spock and I are immediately after introducing me to it, my dad gave me the nickname "Spock" when I was eight, and has used it constantly since, especially whenever I go into a rant about this or that. Usually it's just me spouting information. XD
