Dr. Geoffrey M'Benga Reporting
I am Dr. Geoffrey M'Benga, medical officer assigned to the Starship Enterprise. Since I took my medical internship on Vulcan, I am an expert in Vulcan medicine, anatomy, and psychology. I have been told that I have taken on quite a few of the stoic traits from my studies, but I still like to think I have at least some human sense of humor left in me.

Due to a crazy as hell schedule and having to get a new computer, I haven’t been able to get the next part of this guide out to y’all. Now, last time we finished off the biological component of this guide. Now we get to the complicated and frankly more interesting shit: culture. I planned this section of the guide and basically from here on out, it’s a condensed cultural anthropology course. So pay attention to Professor Me, folks. Also be sure to send me questions at any time because I’d love to answer them. This guide is to help you and if any of it confuses you or you need clarification, hell if you even want me to help you with your alien species, I’d love to help! I like questions. Makes me feel cool as them bees’ knees.

So crack open your notebooks and sharpen your pencils, class. Let’s get started.

I would disagree that humans don’t have innate behaviours (we sleep, jerk our knee if it’s struck the right way, we eat if we’re hungry, or try to, etc)

Looking forward to reading the rest of this series!

As far as behaviors such as eating and sleeping are concerned, yes they handle biological needs, there are cultural differences all over the world on how those are addressed. Those are behaviors. For example, in the US each person has their own bed (except for spouses) in (usually) their own room and that has been done since our birth. However in other parts of the world, the whole family sleeps in the same bed.

And jerking the knee is a biological reflex. It isn’t a behavior. A behavior is a kind of voluntary action. Many birds have the innate behavior to hide from certain shapes that indicate predators like hawks. They are born just KNOWING that. However they have to be taught how to fly. Humans don’t have anything that they are born just knowing.

Does that help?

Meant to put that post onto my other blog. On mobile so I can’t change it. I’ll have to wait until I get home.

Holy shit that’s a good question. Can’t answer it right now because my brain is dumb right now and I’d really need to think about it.

But good job to you man.

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but how many times has Dr. M'Benga lost a patient before?

Countless. I like to say that I haven’t lost a patient, but that would be too naive. There are times when despite our best efforts, there’s nothing we can really do. It is especially true in on this exploration mission. We encounter diseases and syndromes and other maladies that we have never experienced before. We do our best and sometimes that means making it up as we go and hoping for the best. It doesn’t always work out.

☠: A popular fanon headcanon about my character that bugs me

//I… Hm. You know, I don’t really know? I mean it’s not like there’s all that much to go off of and he’s not exactly a commonly used character, even in fanon that I don’t even know what would be considered a popular fanon headcanon for him. 

✔: What got me into roleplaying

//HA so funny story. I was in this group that watched this one particular artist every day when she did livestreams. Really cool stuff and she has mythology-based stuff. Well they started RPing in that chat as different gods and I just kinda joined in. It THEN became its own thing in a separate chat room and just grew and expanded and next thing I know I became an authority figure on the subject and co-modded the thing. That group went on for about a year and a half but then it floundered and there was talks about it getting back together but it never happened. My main character was Dionysus, Greek god of sex and booze and followed by Thoth, Egyptian god of wisdom and knowledge. I came to tumblr when I followed my other co-mod to a Disney RP group where I played Dr. Doppler. The rest is history.

☢: Something about my character that I’ve never explored but want to

//I’ve always wanted to see Geoff just absolutely lose it. He’s such a patient guy that most things he takes in stride, but I want to see him just break. Either in frustration, anger, grief maybe or anything else. I want to just crush him.

no but galaxy quest is legitimately the best movie ever

  • it’s a love letter to fandom — it totally subverts the “gross man-child in the basement” perception of a fanboy and it’s the fans’ dedication to the show that saves the day
  • i repeat: the fandom saves everyone’s lives
  • the omega-13 is such a cool idea like it tosses out the paradoxes involved in time travel by so sharply limiting the amount of time you can go back: it only gives you enough time to undo one terrible mistake, and only if it’s so bad and so huge that you realize immediately how bad it is
  • like no this is a parody movie but it has a smarter plot and more interesting characters and more genuine emotion than like ninety percent of serious sci-fi movies
  • tony shaloub spends the whole movie high as balls
  • the aliens are actually, you know, aliens and the reason they look human and speak english is actually addressed and justified
  • it’s absolutely hysterical like guy fleegman is one of the funniest characters ever filmed i just
  • alan rickman gives me life
  • SIGOURNEY WEAVER
  • the hero that comes in at the last second to save the ship and the thermians and the whole crew is a teenage fanboy who succeeds because he’s a fan do you understand how amazing that is like patrick stewart initially refused to watch the movie because it looked like it would be cruel to the fans but then he was almost in tears when he actually saw it because it got fandom right and it’s all about the fans
  • no but the whole plot is centered around people (and aliens) being inspired by fictional heroes and believing in them and using that belief to give them strength and hope and going to great lengths to create amazing things or work up beautiful, accurate theories out of nothing more than love that’s amazing
  • this movie is freaking perfect okay
  • freaking
  • perfect
