Orion Heaven

Q made Captain Picard's dreams come true, trouble is theres a little catch. You see that ship Enterprise NX 01?

The Orions appearing in The Animated Series depicted the Orion female, in "The Time Trap", and the Orion males in "The Pirates of Orion" as being light-skinned due to coloring difficulties (the same problem also occurred with the normally blue-skinned Andorians, which appeared gray).

Although most other Star Trek episodes had pronounced Orion as "Oh-RYE-on", the word was pronounced "OR-ee-un" throughout "The Pirates of Orion". The mistake was due to the fact that the animated scripts did not include a pronunciation page, unlike scripts of later live-action Star Trek episodes. "The Pirates of Orion" also featured the second appearance of an Orion craft, this time using a far more detailed animation than that used in "Journey to Babel". The episode was the first to reference the Orion species in its title and remains the only episode to have done so.

If Captain Picard wants all these lovely green Orion babes, lusting all over his baldy head, then he has to take Captain Archers place. Thats right, Picard must replace Archer and stay on board as captain of the original Enterprise NX 01. So my friends, the ball is in your court, you'll have to decide and make up your minds on this one!

Have fun and prosper Trekkers and Trekkies!

May the force of Q be with us all.

How about if I take his place instead? I don't mind.

Well, geez.

Jo said...

Trust Alex to offer. I am sure Picard wouldn't mind either.

Such a generous offer from Alex... I suspect his wife and the blogosphere would object though.

Birgit said...

My hubby would be right behind Alex in having to "act" with these bodacious green babes

Alex, I know you wouldn't really do that. That pronounciation snafu is funny. Someone should have known.

I hate doomsday weapons that destroy both ships. That kind of thing is always happening to me, and I wish it wouldn't.

I just remembered I designed some art for this, you need to drop me a line so I can make it so...
