Weekend Challenge: To Bodly Go

Greetings, Campers!

I was torn between giving you a collection of potentially-spoiler and most definitely-NSFW Deadpool quotes (inspired entirely by seeing both Deadpool and Deadpool 2 at the theater, last night).. and going the safe route.

I chose to go the safe route. mostly because I'm at work....

SO! I have a list of 50 "inspiring" quotes from Star Trek to offer you.

Your task is to give me a number (or more) between 1-50, and you'll be on your way to boldly go into that creative space!

Rewards will be icon-sized, sigtag-sized, fawning, cheerleading... or even a short drabble from a fandom we share. we'll work out the details of that, later

LLAP!

not sure how much actual writing time I'll have this upcoming weekend/week...since I've got finals to study for (okay, 1 final, but still...) but hit me up with 10 and 15 and I'll see if I can't squeeze something in :)
