are we ever going to talk about how you have to get actual permission from both your captain and doctor in order to have sex with an alien

like who sits around Starfleet and makes these rules

For everyone wondering about this:

“All Starfleet personnel must obtain authorization from their CO as well as clearance from their medical officer before initiating an intimate relationship with an alien species.” (VOY: “The Disease”)

It’s true. 

this is hilarious

yo captain i wanna bang this alien

sdfsldkfslkj this is the part of Bones’s job he hates the most, going through all the forms on his PADD to give the green-light to all these potential sexual encounters he just WISHES HE DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT IN THE FIRST PLACE but you know he actually DOES SOME RESEARCH to see if people will be COMPATIBLE whereas Jim just ticks the box, all, FREE LOVE, BONES and Bones has to be like GODDAMMIT DID YOU EVEN READ THE FILE, JIM, THEY DON’T EVEN HAvE ORIFICES and Jim is like, wow, Bones, they can still have fun, don’t judge

and bones



This sounds like the sort of rule that got instituted because of something that happened to Kirk, TBH.

It’s referred to in Bones’ log as “The Incident” and Kirk was itchy and purple for weeks

Y’all have got it backwards.

Kirk wanting to bang everything that movies is mostly the parody version of the character. The notion owes more to Zap Brannigan and company than anything out of the original series; yes, Kirk sometimes ends up in compromising positions with female aliens, because he’s a 60s action hero, but he rarely pursues it himself.

In the original series, it’s Bones himself who wants to bang everything with two legs and a pulse.

Like, it’s an actual plot point in multiple episodes.

And let’s be fair. Two legs is probably optional. There’s doubtless an Edosian woman or two that’s been graced with his affections.

Random headcanon: the Starfleet regulation cited above originally required only the clearance of the chief medical officer. The requirement for the CO’s authorisation was added specifically in response to the fallout of Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy’s realisation that, by the strict letter of the rules, he could authorise himself to fuck anything.
