Re: 1167: "Star Trek into Darkness"

TNG is 100 years or so after TOS so Spock being a mixed race person at that time would have a lot more stigma than TNG.

Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

Double post for update:

Ended up buying the dress. It just needs some minor alterations including the length so now I need to sort out the shoes.
