I was cruising with my bf in West Hollywood, when I notice the license plate of the car in front of us says ‘DA CPTN’
That made me think of a ridiculous AU of the star trek peeps as a hover car drag racing crew. spicy shimmy and I discussed all of the ins and out. Because she humors me with my ridiculous AU talks.
Uhura would have a cherry red voice activated car, that Scotty programmed to only respond to her voice. He’d ride shotgun for her, and fix up everyone’s cars.
Sulu and Chekov would be in another car, and be ridiculous daredevils.
Bones would have retired from racing once his little girl was born. But can’t help but hang with them, worried about whose gonna patch them up.
Spock would have belonged to an all Vulcan crew. They’re super logical and practically perfect technique-wise, but they have no fun. They’re also super superior about their crew and won’t let Spock do much else except shine hubcaps or some bullshit.
He finally gets seduced away from that crew by Jim. With promises of fun and highly illogical driving. Spock rides along with Kirk giving him the best maneuvers to take, with the math to back it up.
In this pic, I imagine them sneaking into Bone’s antique car (the only thing not taken in the divorce), and leaving boot smudges all over the interior. What assholes.
