- Original version
Shipping, to put it in a simple way that some NERD will no doubt nitpick, is when fans want certain characters to get together.
I think it is basically accurate to say that given enough fans, every possible combination of characters in a series will be shipped. I don't think there are enough people reading EGS for it to be true of it, but for something like Star Trek? Every possible couple has probably been shipped, no matter how ridiculous. You just know there was someone out there rooting for a couple like Worf and Troi to--Wait, that actually happened. What was up with that?
