absurdical: RIGHT!?! I WAS WORRIED
#forever headcanon that sulu is now 100% incapable of going to warp without checking the external inertial dampeners like seven times #only he doesn’t call them that anymore and he doesn’t call them the parking break either #in his own head the external inertial dampeners are referred to as ‘THOSE MOTHERFUCKERS’ #like that one feature on your car that has busted on you like six times #or that program you have to run on your computer every once in awhile that ALWAYS crashes it #or whatever else that non-sentient thing in your life that has frustrated you so many times that it doesn’t even have a real name in your head anymore #it’s just THAT MOTHERFUCKING THING YOU HATE #because that moment with pike and spock and the external intertial dampeners #sulu is never going to get over that #in 50 years when he’s long since been a famous federation hero #when kids have been buying hikaru sulu action figures for decades #and there’s a bigass statue of him in his hometown #the whole enterprise crew is going to meet up for dinner #elderly and so comfortable with each other that anything is fair game #and someone is going to be like ‘remember that time hikaru forget to turn off the parking break?’ and everyone will laugh #except sulu. #because he will still. not. be over it.
