I apologize for nothing by we-were-in-love I apologize for nothing by we-were-in-love
This awful nonsense has kept me sane under an avalanche of work. After 8-9 hours of website work and painting I'll spend one or two in the evening making.. this. Nonsense. New Kirk is kind of a dingus and I can't help but mock him. My friend called the old version of Spock 'Lionard Nimoy' and I had an lol but 'Leonard' technically works just as well.

Actual lions can't purr but for some species-centric reason Lion King lions can? I dunno. They also have eyebrows and perfect pitch, so whatever.

Great job on the lions, especially with the different timelines. I can tell who is who very easily.

Oh my god, I could tell the lioness was supposed to be Uhura just by the way you drew her eyes/jewelry.  How do you make them look so much like the real characterrrrs.

I was very meh about Uhura until I started watching the original series in earnest. She's stupendous.

I rewatched the original series recently and I was really struck by how subversive it could be in terms of sneaking heroic women past the 60s sensibility police and also by the EPIC BURNS that Spock would deliver onto McCoy. Best.

When I first read your description my brain interpreted 'Lion King lions' as the the male lions which 'ruled' a pride. I was like "Huh! That's odd. I wonder if it's some kind of hierarchal communication thing..."

Dialogue for the second panel of Spock and Kirk:
Kirk: So you take the antelope on the left and I get the one on the right and this way we both get laid.

Honestly, though, rather adoring the Uhura kitty. <3

That's the crazy thing. Whenever people made lion versions they'd either just stick them in an African Savannah-type background or in the human kind of background; it doesn't matter how nonsensical it may be.

Very few big cats can do it. So far as I know, the mountain lion is the only one. Larger cats can make a noise that is a facsimile of a purr when exhaling but because they can't when they inhale, it isn't purring. But this is all very 'if you want to get technical'.  A lot of people don't know and don't care. :D

Lions actually can purr, but it's more of a...modified growl noise? Small cats have some sort of structure that allows them to purr while inhaling or exhaling, but lions (and some other members of pantherinae) can make a purr-like noise while exhaling.

'Purr-like' does not equal actual purring, though. Unless it's a continuous sound production which alternates between pulmonic egressive and ingressive airstream it's not, by definition, a purr. In the movie it sounded way suspiciously like a housecat. Possibly a mountain lion?  I mean, which is fine. It's a fantasy cartoon about talking lions and if they want them to purr in order to be more endearing, power to them.

These are based off of the two latest films which are more or less exactly like every other manic action flick that hollywood churns out yearly, so if you like that sort of thing it's a pretty solid watch.

Now I just have to wait for the eventual musical number.  Perhaps a rousing round of 'Row, row, row your boat' :B

Oh yeah, man. It's ridiculous in concept. Like.. why? Why turn them into lions? But sometimes the goofiest art is the most fun. 

Time for Uhura to start singing about how Spock is a dangerous womanizer.

I have never heard anyone else but my brother use the phrase "pretty baller" and for a moment I was incredibly confused as to how he stole your account. (It's late, don't judge me!) Made me pretty happy though. Also, seconded! Next Gen rules. Gemme some PicardXQ or Data...and...anyone and I smile. Hahaha! Not that I'm a serious shipper. I don't fandom well. *shrug*
