Star Trek is a thrilling adventure which began in 1966. Heres a list of Top Ten tongue twisting - Technobabbles which Star Trek actors use in films and the tv series. We usually see medical or engineering teasers unraveling aboard these federation starships. At least 10 technobabbles are going to melt your brain because we've had 13 Star Trek movies soon to be 14, with six tv shows or seven including the animated one. So lets boldly explore scientific phenomena where no trekkers have geeked out before.

Technobabble sounds so right only because the pseudo-scientific lingo conveys such a realistic meaning (which many actors dread) but really technobabble is good only because its full of baloney still..... Treknobabble works. Treknobabble is impressive. Lets face it, treknobabble gives fans enough Star Treknical sophistication to geek out with at Star Trek conventions because its fun!

Have you got enough Positronic analytical prowess to try out these tongue twister top ten technobabbles?

Here a taste:

10. SCOTTY: The emergency bypass control of the matter anti-matter integrator is fused. (ST TOS; That Which Survives)

Matter integrator..... duh what?


9. DATA: It seems to be a highly focused aperture in the space time continuum. Its energy signature matches that of the temporal fragments we observed earlier. However it is about 1.2 million times as intense. I believe this may be the origin of the temporal fragmentation. (Timescape: STTNG)

Understand any of that? I think I got lost after the  aperture thing.....


8. DATA: Are you using a polymer based neuro-relay to transmit the organic nerve impulses to the central processor of my positronic net? If that is the case, how have you solved the problem of increased signal degradation inherent to organic synthetic transfer.... (ST FIRST CONTACT)

7.LAFORGE:It uses trionic initiators in the warp coil . They have a reputation of strange side effects, especially when you start playing around with them.

DATA: There have been reports of warp bubbles and other subspace deformations.

LAFORGE: So, what if that's what happened? Not a warp bubble, but a subspace transistor funnel.
RIKER: Connecting two points through subspace?



6. DATA: Let us also assume he has initiated an tachyon pulse at the same coordinates in space in all three time periods. In that case, it is possible that the convergence of three tachyon pulses could've ruptured the subspace barrier and created an anti-time reaction.
LAFORGE: I see where you're going, Data. And because anti-time operates opposite the way normal time does, the effects would travel backwards through the space-time continuum.

5. RIKER: Mister Barclay. Everyone's still trying to figure out exactly how you did it.
BARCLAY: Well, it just occurred to me that I could set up a frequency harmonic between the deflector and the shield grid using the warp field generator as a power flow anti-attenuator, and that of course naturally created an amplification of the inherent energy output.
RIKER: Uh huh. I see that.

4.EMH MARK II: The Secondary gyrodyne relays and the propulsion field intermatrix have depolarized. STAT TREK VGR (MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE)

3. RIKER: Okay, Morta. The Enterprise computer system is controlled by three primary main processing cores cross-linked with a redundant melacortz ramistat and fourteen kiloquad interface modules. The core element is based on an FTL nanoprocessor with twenty five bilateral kelilactirals, with twenty of those units being slaved to the primary heisenfram terminal. Now you do know what a bilateral kelilactiral is?
MORTA: Well, of course I do, human. I am not stupid. (RASCALS)

Warning: Repeated viewing could trigger some kind of psychosis.
2. ARTURIS: ".....Its a simple matter of extracting the iconometric elements, and triaxilating a recursion matrix" ST VOYAGER (Hope and Fear)



DATA: Computer, establish a security code for access to all functions previously transferred to Bridge.
COMPUTER: Enter code.
DATA: One seven three four six seven three two one four seven six Charlie three two seven eight nine seven seven seven six four three Tango seven three two Victor seven three one one seven eight eight eight seven three two four seven six seven eight nine seven six four three seven six. Lock.
COMPUTER: Security code intact for all specified inquiries and orders.
DATA: Computer, initiate cascade sequence, accepting instructions from Commander Data en route. (STAR TREK TNG BROTHERS)

Ah ha, so my trekker friends, not all technobabble requires confusing big words - just a good ole positronic brain like Datas!

Which series gets your No1 vote for the best treknobabble?

1. Classic
2. TNG
3. Voyager
4. DS9
5. Enterprise
6. TAS
7. Discovery

Star Trek TNG "11001001"

Airdate: 1st February, 1988.
Stardate: 41365.9
Writers: Maurice Hurley, Robert Lewin.
Director: Paul Lynch
Season 1 episode 14

In Star Trek TNG "11001001" the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D stops over at sleepy Starbase 74 for routine computer upgrades. Captain Picard meets two computer dependent aliens - Bynars. The species resemble the "big brained" Talosians from Star Trek TOS "The Cage" but are really women disguised in Michael Westmores asexual clothing and makeup. In any case these guys are entrusted with enhancing the software on the Federation's flagship.

We soon learn the alien computer geeks "10 and 01" have big computer problems on their own home-world. Solely reliant on computers for social and intellectual communication, they need the Enterprise computer-core to reboot Bynars mainframe - except for Wesley and Rikers initial observations, no-one had a clue. The fun begins when Riker is lured to the holodeck. Some say William T. Riker is Captain Kirk's TNG version, so its only right he'd fall for a sultry Goddess on the holodeck.

 The stunning brunette Minuet (Carolyn McCormick). She sparkled like the diamonds around her neck and dazzled Riker with her pearly whites. No-ordinary smile, a sophisticated programmed smile designed to sucker Riker in while the Enterprise was being hi-jacked! The plot thickens! Meanwhile a fake emergency (failure of the warpcore magnetic containment) has panicked and evacuated nearly all the crew, leaving Picard happily wandering onto the holodeck.

What planet was he on? Surely Rikers suspicions on the bridge was enough but once Minuet had him under her spell. Forget it. So Picard would rather destroy the Enterprise-D than let her fall into enemy hands. At least someones thinking straight. Further investigation reveals 4 tortured Bynars on the bridge. Theres a mind twister here, what would you do? Tick, tock.... 4mins 58sec encounting....

Would Data really forget to check if Picard and Riker had left the ship for Starbase 74?
Finally Riker comments to Picard, Minuet will be hard to forget, despite running the Holodeck Programme, she never said goodbye. Parting is such sweet cold sorrow is it not? Would you pine over Minuet, a computer hologram?

 Live Long and Prosper, trekkers!

Airdate: March 21, 1988
 Stardate: 41503.7
 Writers: Dorothy Fontana, Maurce Hurley, Herbert Wright.
 Season 1 episode 19
 Director: Rob Bowman

A battle in the Neutral Zone. This being Star Trek we rely on Picard's rationality making sense. Unlike fantasy, this is cutting science fiction, on the edge of the Neutral Zone so Starfleet wants answers fast, why I hear you cry? because Klingon criminals are on the loose... duh what in blazes?  Yeah, so now the Federations flagship Enterprise-D launches an investigation...


 The eerie thrilling music plays in the background. Scanning... Short-range scans reveal no indications of life-signs. Data identifies the mystery cargo vessel as the USS Batress. Now Worf speaks up, so now there are life-signs! The plot thickens!


 Hmmm all in not what it seems until we see.... a severely damaged Talarian ship drifting amid space in the Neutral Zone. Theres a mystery unraveling here and Captain Picard's USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D away team is soon beaming over....


PICARD: "Everything about this seems wrong."

RIKER: "agreed"


So what do Riker, Data and La Forge find?


 Its time for La Forge to activate his Visual Acuity transmitter attached to his visor which lets us see what Geordi sees, (lets face it, this gadget is a gimic) Once onboard the away team discover three Klingons  and bring them back to the Enterprise-D sickbay.



It turns out the trio arent who they claim to be. They say they were attacked by Ferengi. Curiously Worf's position on the Enterprise-D interests them. I have to admit, when I heard Worf letting loose with a powerful howl, joining his Klingon warrior buddies in the death ritual, when one of them dies of his injuries. (I thought they sounded like wild beasts)

Eventually, Worf discovers these Klingons are opposed to the Federation and the Klingon truce. The simple truth is these guys are in fact renegades, on the run from Klingons warriors sent to put them in irons! Already a Klingon Cruiser has been destroyed by the criminals so now its crunch time.


 When another warship arrives, Picard has to turn them over, its that simple. Right? Wrong, its not that simple. The renegades are running loose on the Enterprise-D. Meanwhile, its time for Worf to make up his mind. Who side does he want to be on? Federation or Klingon?

These Klingons are criminals but with Worfs help they are captured.... but hey this is the 24th century! We've got high tech Klingon gadgets! One escapes, One dies in sickbay and the other finds Main Engineering.


 While holding the Enterprise to ransom with his 007 Klingon gadget, Korris holds all cards, so Worf has to talk him down. Desperate Korris wants freedom. He  points his energy weapon at the intermix dilithium crystal chamber of the Enterprise-D. Does worf back down?


QUESTION : What did Klingon Korris expect from Worf and Captain Picard?

WAS IT.........

Stan Lee

Stan lee passed away on Monday 12th November at the age of 95. His Marvel sci-fi characters were like his children which leapt off the comicbook pages and took on a life of their own in the movie universe.

Fans are still coming to grips with the tremendous loss of one of our much loved superheroes, a Marvel Icon and Disney Legend who just loved the fans. Heres a brilliant Star Trek video with Stan Lee and like he says a lot - TREK ISOLATION: A Great Responsibility:) thanks to Trekmovie.


 We will always love Stan Lee.


Live Long and Prosper, Marvel, Trek, Sci-Fi, Fans.

To Boldly Discover Star Trek

Are Fans Rejecting Star Trek Discovery?

So with Netflix footing the bill for the entire season 1 of Star Trek Discovery. The question remains. Is the new show a financial success?

As predicted by the licensees the ship and costume designs and overall deviation from Star Trek Canon has caused a backlash in the fan community.

Discovery toys aren't readily available in stores except online...hmmm its a different story. Amazon is a good place to search. You can find a Sonequa Martin-Green STAR TREK DISCOVERY Autographed photo for $65... so if you've got the bucks to blow.. shes waiting for you!

But lets get serious for a second, the new changes have caused an unmistakable rupture in the space time continuum between borderline fans who dislike ST Discovery and fans who love it.

So which side are you on? Do you love the new Star Trek Discovery Costumes? or prefer the older kelvin timeline....... Kirk, Picard, Janeway, Seven of Nine perhaps or maybe McFarlane Fox toys? hehe CBS must be loving this. What about the JJ abramsverse Star Trek movies?

In some sense Star Trek Discovery was to Star Trek Fans what Star Wars the last Jedi would become later to Star Wars fans. Which timeline are you casting your vote in favor of?  Hey maybe you loved Star Trek Into darkness..............

Live Long and prosper.

Captain Kirk's Memorrable Kisses

Captain James T Kirk has enjoyed romantic entanglements with the galaxies most beautiful women. Some were flirtatious, and others were dangerous birds but none could match the deadly speed and true love of the Starship USS Enterprise NCC 1701. I find it fascinating to take stock of historys glories, join me on our quest down memory lane... where are they today?

Edith Keeler played by Joan Collins. Kirk and Edith kissed when he saved her from falling down a stairs and breaking her neck. History had to be restored to prevent the Nazi's winning WW2. Edith Keeler had to die. In reality Joan is 85 still kicking and starring in American Horror Story. 2018

Lieutenant Uhura played by Nichelle Nichols. Captured by Platonians and forced to entertain, Kirk and Uhura's kiss was watched by millions for being
the first of real world significance. Today Nichelle is 85 is involved in many productions from White Orchid 2018, American Nightmares 2018, Unbelievable, Noahs Room, Drones, Clones and Pheromones. Wowsers!

Lenore Karidian played by Barbara Anderson. Kirk romanced Lenore hoping to find out the truth about the suspected criminal Kodos. It turns out Lenore is killing her lovers who suspect too much making their "kiss" near fatal. Today at 72 her photos don't do her justice. Despite the faded golden hair her mind is sharp and she has a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Marlena Moreau played by Barbara Luna starred in Mirror with the Evil Captain Kirk. She was seductive and wanted to share power but threatened to leave. Kirk changed her mind with a kiss melting her resolve. Today Barbara, Luna to her friends is 79, looks a million and lives in NY. Her most recent work in 2016 was the Sandra West Diaries.

Yeoman Rand played by Grace Lee Whitney was foxy sultry hottie in her day. A fan favorite who sadly died in 2015. There was a moment on the starship Enterprise when a savage duplicate Kirk forced himself on Rand. All down to a transporter accident. Whitney lived to age 85 after appearing in 8 classic episodes and several Star Trek movies. She featured in Star Trek Voyager and was loved at conventions.

Areel Shaw was played by Joan Marshal died at age 61. She married 5 times and was Barbara Striesland's secretary. In Star Treks Court Martial she was the only woman to wear a full uniform dress for the duration of the episode. Turns out as prosecuting officer she couldn't resist trying the defendant with a kiss before gunslinging him.

Shahna played by Angelique Pettyjohn died from cervical cancer in 1992. She was 48 and a stunner. She starred in Star Treks Gamsters of Triskelion as green haired thrall whom kirk kissed, said goodbye leaving her to watch the lights in the sky.

Andrea played by Sherry Jackson (76) was a real stunning android.  Seizing the moment and the android, Kirk plants a sloppy wet kiss right onto her sweet pretty smacker. Poor Andrea, I bet her that move overloaded her logical android programming. I couldn't help but laugh when she says "No, not programmed for you." Jacksons last gig was Strike force in 1982. Since age 11 the camera loved her but acting roles faded in the 80's.

James T. Kirk had many conquests and one had the most amazing smile. Dr Helen Noel (Dagger of the Mind) played by Marianna Hill. Its too bad they didn't make her a regular cast member because she was smoking hot and perfect.

She is known for High Plains Drifter, The Godfather PII, Star Trek TOS and the Outer Limits. M Hills last movie was a comedy titled Chief Zabu 2016.

Hope you enjoyed our trek down the stars, live long and prosper.

Which Sci-Fi Spacebabe is your favorite?

Worf and Jadzia

Terry Farrell is big at Star Trek conventions. Here she is giving a Q&A for the fans at Supercon 2018. She first appeared as Jadzia Dax in a DS9 episode "Dax" accused of murder. Fans know by now "Jadzia" character is two different species. So heres the thing, see....


Theres this large worm lurking within beautiful Jadzia the host. So what is it? Well trekkers, to be blunt Jadzia's 300 year old beastie has a name.....Its called Dax, lol. So lets see now... The Dax symbiont brain entity had previous deep ties with Klingon culture, so when Klingon Worf came along (remember him?) a Klingon wedding on Deep Space 9 kinda happened. Jadzia and Worf were married.

 So who got the better deal? You decide! but we're talking about Jadzia the spacebabe with several doctorates and degrees in exobiology, zoology, astrophysics, and Xenoarchaeology - duh what?) You don't have to understand the how it all happened exactly...... just let Jadzia - do all the talking and Worf can consider himself one lucky Klingon.

He must have been trilled, Jadzia was, wouldn't you agree?  tell me what you think.

Live long and Prosper
