#StarTrek50: Ten times Spock perfectly summed up what it's like to be a student
Share This Article:
Today marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most iconic television shows of all time, Star Trek. Created by Gene Roddenberry in 1966, this sci-fi classic has created an enormous legacy, spawning several spin-off series, films and reboots that continue to fuel and delight the 'Trekkie' fandom half a century later. As well as inventing a number of now-legendary quotes and phrases, the show also introduced us to some truly iconic characters, including everybody's favourite Vulcan, Spock. Brought to life by the late, great Leonard Nimoy, Spock's deadpan logic continues to be as sharp, entertaining and oddly relateable as it was in 1966. While Spock faltered to truly understand the emotions of the average human, his similarity to the average student is actually pretty uncanny... as we attempt to convey below. 1. When you sit through the first lecture of the new semester and struggle to figure out if this new module you're taking is interesting, confusing, or both. via GIPHY 2. When that one guy in your seminar group butts in to disprove or disagree with the point that you (reluctantly) made (...because the tutor picked on you). via GIPHY 3. When you find out some juicy gossip as you continue to climb the social ladder in your quest to be the ultimate BNOC. via GIPHY 4. When you're stood just a little too close to the confetti/snow machine at the Christmas ball. via GIPHY 5. When you're trying to gear yourself up for a 9am, running on three hours sleep and a hangover.
