the abyss also gazes into you
JIM: How did you find me?
PIKE: I know you better than you think I do.
#hahahahaha just the same way that pike was a father in all the discipline and the sternness #he was a father in the playful teasing and taunting #that kind of banter that kirk responds to because it’s so easy #just like pike knows that jim will respond to a kick in the ass #he knows that emotional and gentle words don’t have the same effect as humor #pike always intuitively knows how to find a balance between seriousness and joking #to find the perfect point where he can successfully guide jim down the right path #i think few of us have been lucky enough to have a //biological// father like that #so imagine how blessed jim must know he was #for his adopted mentor to be just exactly what he’s always needed?

Happy Birthday to Bruce Greenwood!!! August 12, 2013
Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Her ongoing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life-forms and new civilizations; to boldly go where no one has gone… before.
