Notes: For More Joy Day. Thank you to [personal profile] cosmic_llin, [personal profile] purplefringe and [personal profile] anoel for betaing!

As I may have mentioned about two or three hundred times already, I REALLY liked Star Trek Beyond, and the subsequent avalanche of feelings precipitated something of a full scale Star Trek feelings renaissance (A++ would recommend). So this is a vid about that, and about all* the things I love and have loved about Star Trek over the last decade or two. ♥

*well. Not all. They wouldn't all fit. Call it a representative sample?

Stop me on the corner
I swear you hit me like a vision
I, I, I wasn't expecting
But who am I to tell fate where it's supposed to go?
With it
Don't you blink you might miss it
See we got a right to just love it or leave it
You find it and keep it
'Cause it ain't every day you get the chance to say

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

I never seen it, I found this love, I'm gonna feed it
You better believe, I'm gonna treat it better than anything I've ever had
'Cause you're so damn beautiful
Read it
It's signed and delivered, let's seal it
Boy we go together like peanuts and paydays, Marley and reggae
And everybody needs to get a chance to say

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

Everything is like a white out, 'cause we shk shk shine down
Even when when the light's out but I can see a glow
Got my head up in the rafters, got my happy ever afters
Never felt this way before, ain't felt this way before

I swear you hit me like a vision
I, I, I wasn't expecting
But who am I to tell fate where it's supposed to go?

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

Brighter than the sun
Brighter than the sun
Brighter than the sun

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun

That actually is made of joy. I will watch it the traditional 5,000 times once I get a chance to download it.

And thanks for including subs. It makes it so much easier for Nenya to enjoy vids (otherwise I end up writing them.)

Aaah this is so perfect and beautiful I love it to itty bitty pieces! So fun and funny and joyful, and oh, this is how it starts, and oh, everybody does need a chance to be part of this. Aargh. I loved the transition from Beyond to the whole canon, and I am so easy for a good hug montage. I also really, really liked how you used the shots of Sulu and his husband in the first half, and oh, this is just such a GOOD explosion of feels, I love it! Will definitely be re-watching.

Only flaw is I think there should have been at least five shots of Jaylah in the captain's chair placed strategically throughout the vid -- I know that probably didn't occur to you, though, being as you don't like that shot at all.

Jenni! I have just been shown this vid because somehow I had missed seeing you post it and it is WONDERFUL I love it so much! It's so fluid and fresh and beautiful and also I love all these people and their faces. I particularly like the birthday cake montage and people-unwrapping-presents montage, and the baseball hats, and just, all the palpable joy and affection.

I enjoyed the themed montages so much -- the care and the time that went into this was so evident! I would enjoy getting to read some vidder's notes on this, if you feel interested in writing some -- especially in how you chose the sequence, the ordering of the patterns you highlight, in the chunk of the vid that spans so many different Trek series.

In particular I noticed with deep appreciation how you drew from TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT all -- I'm a Trek fan who has more emotional attachment to TNG, DS9, and ENT than to the other two, so I especially loved those quotes, but more than that, the grandeur of the epic scope of this narrative heritage really hits harder when we see ALL those series represented! So, thank you!

beatrice_otter: OMGWTFBBQ!  Hector dies in book 22!  Spoilers! (Spoilers)
From: [personal profile] beatrice_otter
Lovely! Most of it was perfect and spot on. It was kinda jarring, though, in the midst of this happy joyful vid, to have a clip of Kirk and Spock dancing from Plato's Stepchildren, which in the context of the original vid was neither happy nor joyful.

It works visually, and most people won't know. Or care if they do.

I finally got around to watching this one and it is a delightful helping of Star Trek feels! I may actually love the ending shot most of all--it feels more relevant than ever now, that spirit of hope.

There's an infectious joy to this. I liked that everyone got their moment in the Beyond section and then the expansion was mving.
