star trek mccoy

I still crush on McCoy when I bother to think about it.

Star Trek: my first fandom.
Doctor McCoy: my first fandom crush.
Star Trek: the latest movie trailer.

It's obviously a serious re-write of the previous series canon, and more things blow up than ever blew up before. Zachary Quinto is shockingly Nimoy-ish, though of course his voice is all wrong. It's not yet clear to me it'll be good, but it is clear that I'll be parked in a seat on opening night or very soon thereafter.

How about you?
Heh. My sister loved McCoy. He always seemed too old to me. I think my first Star Trek crush was Chekov. I was really little and for some reason he reminded me of my first teevee love, Davy Jones. When I rediscovered ST again ten years later, I wanted nothing more than to throw Capt Kirk to the floor of the bridge and make sweet intergalactic lurve to him. Macho, sexist, silly, and yet deliciously virile. Yum!
I've always had a thing about the older men. Giles is a departure for me in that he's more or less my age. (In the series, that is, when I watched it, Giles was my age. ASH himself is a decade older than I am.)
You replied too fast. I didn't get to correct my spelling.

I've always loved older men as well. Giles counts as older, because, in my mind, I relate more to the teenage characters on the show. In real life Head's 14 yrs older than me. He was born the same year as my brother and several of my brother-in-laws. Most of the older men I loved in rl were more like twenty yrs older than me, which is a little gross, I guess.
I find it incredibly awesome that someone older should only become more and more handsome and suave with age -- take Ian McKellen as an example, over 60, comes out of the closet, stars in SEVERAL action films, gets several action figures, acts opposite another really suave handsome older man (Stewart!), and gets to wear a purple coat in a scene while doing it. Jean Grey is a great character, and the scene is serious, but somehow I always die when I see that purple coat. Oh, and then he takes a much younger boyfriend to the Oscars during the height of the Lord of the Rings mania.
