William Shatner Friend and Defender of Earth Boldly goes where no Blue Orgin has gone Before


Merry Christmas Trekkers and to usher in 2022 heres some Bezos and Shatner Blue Origin fanfare with their rocket shooting off into space. You'll remember the legendary captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise 1701 from Star Trek the Classic Series? Well here he is....

These are our friends, our defenders and our protectors of the United Federation of Earth. Well, good as - apparently William Shatner has gone up into Space big time Trekkers for real, (only Joan Collins is not in agreement! )๐Ÿ˜ one to beam up Scotty! 


Without hope what have we got?  I'm going up into Space, How many people can say that? Jeff Bezos Concept to make living and pollution a thing of the past.




“I’m so filled with emotion about what just happened,” the screen legend said. “It’s extraordinary. I hope I never recover from this. I hope I can maintain what I feel now.”


What do you think? Are you for or against Space exploration?


Merry Christmas Trekkers!

STAR TREK PICARD NEWSFLASH

 Heres a question fans of Star Trek Picard are asking. 

Does Q appear in Star Trek Picard?

To recap trekkers we know In Star Trek: Picard's season 1 finale, Picard did indeed perish from his disease after he helped save the galaxy. But Dr. Altan Soong (Brent Spiner) and Dr. Agnes Jurati (Alison Pill) successfully transferred Picard's mind into the Golem, granting the retired Starfleet Admiral a new lease on life.


 


Heres a youtube scoop - Q creates an alternate timeline for Season 2!Yup! It kinda brings back 'ol Star Trek  memories of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D and First Contact sniff. Oh well. Season two will premiere in February 2022 



On the 18th Jul Johnathan Frakes confirmed:

I just finished directing a couple of episodes of Star Trek: Picard. I can confirm that one of our old crew, the omnipotent Q, played by John de Lancie, is in fact in both of the episodes that I direct.

Is there a season 3 of Star Trek: Picard?

So now Picard's crew are time traveling to repair the fabric of time, lo and behold Q (John DeLancie) has lots of surprises for Picards fledglings. We see a Dictator Picard!!!! Why??? So what hope is there for Earth? What does the Federation represent with a Picard Totalitarian regime in power? 



Will the fabric of time shatter if the two Picards meet? or is this something else? The Borg Queen also makes an amazing appearance and in order to save the future, wait for it ๐Ÿ˜ Picards crew enlist her help!!!  So whats going on?

All is not the same in trekiverse, times are a changing!!!! What is Q up to?  

   Marina Sirtis, who plays Counselor Troi, and J. Frakes were briefly in Picards last season. Brent Spiner, who played Data, is back in another role. Seven of Nine and Picard never met in TNG continuity but in Star Trek Picard Jeri Ryan reprises her role and joins a lot of dots. 


Do you think the Federations moral compass has gone completely mad, assasins out for blood, is not very diplomatic or, "we come in peace" friendly, is it?


Live Long and Picard Trekkers

STAR TREK'S WONDER BABES


Counsellor Troi - Guinan - Dr Beverly Crusher
Remember Star Treks TNG episode " The Host?"
Chief Medical officer, Dr Beverly Crusher gets the surprise of her life when she falls in love with a trill humanoid who hasn't got a lot of time to live.

 Poor Beverly, stunned, discovers that her lover, Ambassador 'Odin' has an intelligent entity likened to the Aliens "Creature" within. The only difference being Odin's organism was kind, alive and actually quite peaceful!!! lol  unlike the xenomorph in aliens. 



On the surface Ambassador Odin has accepted his fate only Beverly hasn't. The "organism" is in a dicey situation because the "host" body is about to die. Thats the gist of it. Its tragic. When a new replacement host Trill arrives for our friend 'Odin' it really is parting is such sweet sorrow for Beverly or Odin depending how you look at it. 

Poor Dr Beverly is in turmoil..... she can do little but wait desperately with rising hopes for the arrival of her new lovers Trill host body. Then it happens. Worf speaks, Doctor! Beverly heart is and pardon the pun CRUSHED when she sees that the new host is not a HE but a SHE! A wealth of experiences and memories are transferred and eventually passed on to the new trill host except all is not what it seems.. 

Odin - Beverly


When Kareel arrives in Sickbay she springs a surprise on Beverly. WOW! Little time is wasted and a successful operation delivers 'Odin' who emerges as a blonde beauty clearly recognizable as the Trill female  seen here.

 Question  did Beverly appreciate Odin's successor picking up where Ambassador Odin left off?

Beverly - Female Trill Odin

Beverly - It is very cold in Space


Thanks. says Beverly politely, completely shaken by the experience, "maybe one day, humans will be capable of more."  Gates Mc Fadden aka Dr Crusher in this episode took the news rather well don't you think? 


TNG's episode "Booby Trap " is where Geordie does his best to get it on with Christy on the holodeck. He spends several hours perfecting the ideal love-nest holodeck programme only for it to end like a bad transporter accident. - Yeah, I know, don't tell me, I'm the perfect nice guy.- says Geordie trying to save face. How come Geordie has lousy luck with women on the holodeck?



Geordi - Christy on Holodeck

 In The Next Generation, Susan Gibney plays Doctor Leah Brahms in episodes "Booby Trap" and "Galaxy's Child", appearing as a holographic character in the first, and as a "real" person in the second. Two distinctly different characters. So Geordie the Chief engineer activates the hologram, Dr Leah Brahms on the holodeck at Utopia Planitia Shipyards and after talking to her, the Chief Engineer figures, ouch, freezer woman. Heck we've the USS Enterprise-D to save. A few adjustments to the computers concept of Dr Leah Brahms original programming will speed up things, 'cos like Brahms is COLD and that won't do.



Dr Leah Brahms - Geordi LaForge



 So, with the wizardry of the Enterprise-D flagship, Geordie adds a few personal touches of his own to make Leah more receptive and affectionate to the situation. Of course the tweaks are all in keeping with the engineer's line of duty whos trying to save the Enterprise and perfectly ethical, ahem. So he snogs the babe of his dreams at long last! Sure it was just a goodbye present, right?



                                        Image Owner: Paramount Pictures and or CBS Studios

TNG In "Galaxy's Child the real Leah Brahms arrival causes quite a commotion. Uh Oh!!!!  Geordie is so pleased with himself and can't wait to meet the real Leah in real living color and introduce himself. It just feels so right and knowing everything about Leah from her Starfleet records sure the love magic had to happen. had too...

right?  right???

Like a lovesick teenager falling all over the place, hanging on to her every word, Engineer Geordi plans his big play. Uh Oh!!! In real life Leah Brahms is the proverbial freezer woman but thats all water under the bridge right??? Got to be right??? Got to be.... 

but when she reacts angrily and discovers what Geordi been doing to her beloved USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D engines.(She originally designed them at the Utopia Planetia Shipyards) Sacrilege and knowing Leah, you really have to watch this one to get a measure of her icy cool, she likely felt like whooping Geordie, just look at that photo of the two of them.

  Later, on her own, Leah finds La Forge's hologram re-creation of her on the Enterprise-D holodeck and her dopple ganger is kind of funny. Let me know what you think in the comments below. 


Tasha Yar


                                        Image Owner: Paramount Pictures and or CBS Studios
 


In Star Trek TNG the "Naked Now" the Enterprise-D crew get infected and start acting bezerk when they return from an away mission. Tash Yar, a real stunner in this episode sets her sights on Data the android, adding him to her list of conquests. She has a curious expression on her face cornering Data who lights up her eyes. Data is naturally baffled at first but being an android doesn't resist her. Tasha leans forward expecting more so he yields. 

 "Data, You are fully functional aren't you ?" " I am functional" replies Data 
" HOW fully functional?" demands Yar, smiling eagerly like a hungry little cougar. 
" In every way!" responds Data 
" You little Jewel" responds Tasha leading the curious android away.


Tasha - Data



In Star Trek's TNG " Hollow Pursuits" Deanna Troi is programmed to respond affectionately by Reginald Barclay. Reg's fantasy holodeck re-creation characters are more real to him than the USS Enterprise-D crew. How sad is that? Hes having difficulty integrating with the Enterprise crew so the holodeck is the perfect escape for him.


Goddess of Empathy



Deanna's holo-character is programmed as the Goddess of Empathy and is loving and caring. Indeed, as Barclay joins her, Deanna senses his confidence and arrogant resolve, and that excites her, so she tells him. Feeling rejected and the need to vent at his crew mates, Reg creates the three musketeers.

 


 Deanna horrified at what she sees - Riker enjoying the occasion!



We see a cheeky Captain Picard, a short, unimpressive, wandering Commander Riker, whom the real Deanna takes much pleasure in laughing at. "There's nothing wrong with a healthy fantasy life, as long as you don't let it take over," Famous last words until Troi discovers the Goddess of Empathy. The real Deanna tries to deactivate her dopple ganger but Riker has others ideas. The smirk soon vanishes from the Counsellor's face. Commander Riker, humiliated by the previous Holo-Riker experience takes his time to enjoy a good belly laugh by watching Deanna get a dose of medicine from her own Goddess of Empathy and keeps her there.

No, no, this is part of Barclay's programme right? We can't delete her!

 Computer belay that order. Suffice to say, Reginald Barclay had a lot of explaining to do. 

What say you trekkers,  was Riker right in teasing Deanna? Did Reginald Barclay take his Holodeck venting too far? Tasha Yar looked really beautiful in season 1 didn't she? Did Geordi disrespect Leah Brahms USS Enterprise-D engines? Odin and Kareel is definitely a new one for the books even by todays standards. What do you think? 



 Live Long and Prosper Trekkers!

STAR TREK PICARD - Q IS BACK

 The trial never ends. Q is back! Hey Trekkers its getting closer to that time again, Star Trek Picard Season 2 due to hit our screens again in Feb 2022. It seems the former USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D nemesis John De Lancie aka Q uses his God like powers to change the dimension of time and space throwing the former Picard and crew to an alternate timeline. Quotes de Lancie Q "annoys the s--t out of Picard" creating a totalitarian nightmare reality.

 Apparently, despite Picards protest "I am way too old for your b*lls**t" fell on deaf ears Q snapped his fingers and voila? Double Trouble. Q's having fun again altering the fate of billions. The great peace keeper, diplomat and negotiator Jean Luc Picard is no more Earth is run by a dictator! Will Jeri Ryan aka Seven of Nine become a full borg in season 2? 

Live Long and prosper, Trekkers

Ernie Shields

Here's a general overview of Star Trek engineer Ernie Shields. I created this roleplay character so I could be one with other trekkie fans and participate in galactic voyages aboard the starship USS Audacious. There were open positions aboard the ship to nurture interested writers, rpgers and science fitionalists so recommended reading of the SIMM rules became required Starfleet training.

Let us begin with Ernie Shields who signed up for Starfleet life right after  the academy. (You can find out who they are here.) While knowledge of ship systems is essential, Ernie’s primary duty has always been to the ship and the lives and safety of his crewmates....at least thats how he used to think before Ernie lost his wife. Ernie has to consider Starfleet regulations when lives are at stake but the prime directive is a sticky one. It takes a cool head and a firm hand to make repairs while Captain Gerico is crucifying the ship with little regard for Ernie's finely tuned engines. What am I an engineer or some monkey wrench?

Gerico. I want warp 9 on the double!!! It goes against Engineering Officer’s Ernie's better judgment to allow the ship to do Warp 9.6 while the power transfer conduits are pushing over 3.2 million degrees Kelvin. If only he were the Chief Engineer, then he’d tell him the Captain.

  Ambitions: To be perfectly honest, keeping the ship in one piece is Ernie's goal; that and letting the Captain know that he can't have everything his own way except theres one problem. Claustrophobia and technofear cos he's afraid to use transporters!!!!  One of many secrets and he wants the Chief Engineers job, so go figure that one! Hobbies & Interests: Reading technical manuals, Saurian brandy, fine-tuning the Audacious warp core, and tinkering with the primary and secondary subsystems in Main Engineering. Wife [Deceased, 2380] Susan Shields RIP. Children None. Other Family Nephew and Niece. History: Date of Birth: 2347.08.23 (Stardate 24642.4) Place of Birth: Along the Unaka Range, Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina, North American Continent, Earth. Ernie is knowledgeable in starship engineering systems. Service Record Starfleet Serial Number: DE-198-56-Zulu Previous Assignments: Engineering Officer, USS Audacious NCC-60650 (2385-Present) Ship’s Engineer, USS Aesculus NCC-8302 (2382-2385) Ship’s Engineer, USS Dogwood NCC-8372 (2380-2382) Engineering Assistant, USS Sylvatica NCC-8373 (2378-2380) Propulsion Specialist, USS Darklass NCC-9363 (2375-2378) Engineering Advisor, USS Hippocastanum NCC-8469 (2373-2375) Computer Systems Specialist, USS Blackwood NCC-49315 (2371-2373) Engineering Assistant, USS Rosewood NCC-2631 (2369-2371) Graduated Starfleet Academy (cum laude) (2369) Cadet Assignments: Engineering Cadet, USS Crystal NCC-18707 (2368) Engineering Cadet, USS Cheyenne NCC-73600 (2367) Entered Starfleet Academy (2365) Posting Activity Recent Posts [ Show All Posts ] Date Title Location Timeline Tuesday, February 26, 2008 at 09:46PM Battle damage Bridge, Engineering aboard the audi Sunday, February 24, 2008 at 01:32AM Pandemonium Engineering Aboard the Audi Thursday, February 21, 2008 at 10:30PM Deck 4 Port Side of Audi Aboard the Audi Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 01:03AM Hull Breach Main Engineering Aboard the Audi Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 11:18PM Get It Done!

Android vs Cyborg vs T800 HK Terminator

DATA AND BORG QUEEN
Paramount Pictures or CBS Paramount Television

 What makes a robot tick? or an android or a cyborg tick?. Commander Data of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D for instance is immortal, so he has nothing to fear you might think. Neither does Seven of Nine. Strength of 10 men, doesn't break easily, has an exhaustive computer memory and until 2371 was completely emotionless, when Dr Noonien Soong's (Data's human father) emotion chip was finally installed. 

Beforehand Data was completely fail safe and ruthless with his opponents. This thing had the equivalent fighting capabilities for taking on the T800 Hk Terminator. Seven of Nine would simply have resorted to the mesmerizing power of her mind enhanced by the Collective Borg. resistance is futile. You will be assimilated. 

 

The Enterprise Data android is not without flaws. The installation of Dr Soong's emotion chip initially made Data a weak, emotional android unable to master a flood of human emotionalism. Data's off switch, known only to his Enterprise friends was his Achilles heel. It effectively put the chief of Operations in sleep mode or deactivation which Lore took full advantage.  

SEVEN OF NINE


In Star Trek's TNG "The Measure of a Man" Data's rights to choose are at stake.. A hearing is assembled on the starbase. Data's future and all future androids in the galaxy rest solely on the successful outcome of Captain Picard's Dรฉfense of Data. Fortunately Mr Data is not deemed the property of Starfleet Command but a sentient lifeform with rights to choose on equal footing of us human and in case you haven't been paying attention - That means us pitiful earthers.

T800 HK TERMINATOR

Who do you think would win in hand to hand combat? 

1. Mr Data

STAR TREK PICARD - WHY NO 1 is THE BEST

Star Trek has an exciting new character to whet our appetites about, Picards trusty new dog and his name we all know is Number One! Fun considering William T Riker (Johnathan Frakes) starship USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D was Captain Picards sidekick too! So now Picard's New Number 1 is everywhere, posters and trailers. Heres Patrick Stewarts interview about his pitbull and what it means to Star Trek Picard.





“I wanted a dog because I have, only in the last four years, renewed my acquaintance with dogs. I had a dog, a border collie, when I was little and nothing since then. I thought all we need to do is to have a dog at Picard's side. And that, without any dialogue or any dramatic reference, will say a lot about this man, that he now has a dog always at his side,” Stewart said of the creative decision behind giving Picard a four-legged friend.


Star Trek: Picard


NO 1   sits  by  PICARD waiting for orders.


"Remembrance"  


He continued. “And then the question was what kind of dog? Well, I am obsessed with pitbulls. What a dog, and how ill used they have been, appalling used. In England they're a banned breed. I adopted my first pit bull and we already were excited about the thought of taking her back to England, and we couldn't do it. They won't be let in the country. I even talked to the British Embassy in Washington about it and they said,  ‘There's nothing we can do.` I'm now part of a campaign working in the UK to get this legislation changed because they are the most sensitive, the most loving, the most giving, the most affectionate creatures that you could ever possibly hope to meet.”


It seems that Stewart represents the best of us both on and off the screen. Pitbulls have a history of being mistreated, so Stewart is doing the right thing in standing up for them against unfair stereotypes and giving them a platform like Star Trek: Picard. We think Picard would be proud.

Y is for "Yes"

 Y is for "Yesss but some think Yikes!". Hi Trekkers. lots of us look at aliens and some shiver at the sight of a Vidian, Borg or Ferengi. I know my mom does. Sorry Mom. Quark dressed up as a female was a manic panic now lol - Then You've got Andorians, Tellarites, Klingons and Talosians with their enlarged veiny heads - not exactly royal beauties but great stuff for sci-fi entertainment.

 To give Star Trek actors their due, I'm giving them a 7/10 for horror effect, dedication, time spent in the chair being layered up in scaly makeup. Not every alien is the same either with green Orions arousing envy in women and lust in men. 



Species 8472 was a total eye opener for the crew USS Voyager NCC-74656. The Borg met their match crossing the line with these beauties who were telepathic, powerful and unassimilable - not someone to welcome home for dinner and desert. A complete game changer for Voyager and heres why. These things lived in fluidic space and had what many would call a bad attitude problem. What distinguished 8472 from traditional aliens was their arrival marked the first completely computer generated characters in Star Trek space. 

QUESTION: Star Trek Voyager episode "Scorpion Part 2" introduced what actress who played Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One? her character Seven also appears in Star Trek Picard.


Live Long and Prosper, Trekkers

X-Factor Star Trek Question

 X is for X-hausted. At least thats how I feel during this stage of our AtoZ challenge. Heres an X-Factor Star Trek question for you trekkers. Can you name Star Treks librarian who lived on the planet Sarpellion whose sun was going supernova?  see below for answer.

W is for Whoopi Goldberg

 W is for Whoopi Goldberg (Oscar and Golden Globe Winner) who played Guinan aboard the starship USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D in Star Trek the Next Generation. Whoopi has a massive following across the world and her awards speak for themselves. She's starred in lots of movies and tv shows and has been a fan of Star Trek since the classic series. 

Heres a GIF I created with Guinan  giving Q (John DeLancie) a dose of his own medicine. Star Trek TNG Deja Q is satisfying to watch. The story goes Guinan is centuries old and wise beyond her years. So when omnipotent Q turns up at the Enterprise-D doors and says: I have no powers!!!  No-one believes him except maybe Guinan who gets an idea with a fork.

Vanessa Williams gets Miss America Apology

 V is for Vanessa Williams. The former Miss America and pop singer was a natural to be cast as Arandis, the facilitator for the Tembiti Lagoon on the pleasure planet Risa in Star Trek except theres more. 

Here she is on youtube singing and receiving an apology from CEO Sam Haskell 32 years later after having to hand back her Miss America crown in 1984. According to youtuber Nadi1010 heres what happened.


 Her pictures were leaked, without her consent, to Playboy. In today’s world that would be considered a sex crime. She was one of the first public figures to be a victim of a sex crime, and she was blamed for it. To me, this apology reflects our cultural shift around how we treat women and sexual assault survivors. Looking out far ahead, I can see an arc bend.

U is for Uhura

 U is for Uhura. Lieutenant Nyota Uhura is a multitalented officer in communications and technology which gives her the skill to operate Spocks Science Station, navigation and even command of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701. Uhura is remembered best for opening hailing frequencies with many ships, aliens and planets. Here she is having a nice friendly chat with some Klingons. Can you guess which Star Trek movie? Heres a hint, only two actresses played Uhura - Nichelle Nichols and Zoe Saldana, and a clip from the film.

T is also for Tremendous. Its only fitting we give BlogMan aka Arlee Bird over at Tossing it Out an awesome shout out. I'm sure many of us will appreciate Blogman who kick started the A to Z challenge which is now an annual blogverse event. 307 Tremendous bloggers. took part this year. 


In which Star Trek movie does Kirk mention Iowa as his home town?

Do you feel the rhythm of life setting the pace as we hurtle around the sun?

Star Trek Superstar

S is for Star Trek Superstar. Kelsey Grammer comes in at no 7 on ranker , remember him! Superstar Frasier in Cheers. Cheers and Star Trek, two popular high profile Paramount shows watched every week way back in the 80's and 90's, so its hardly surprising actors crossed over from one show to another. Captain Morgan Bateson of Starfleets U.S.S. Bozeman starred in "Cause and Effect." 

Kelsey Grammer appeared in the 5th season of Star Trek TNG. The fact is Frasier phoned in Batemans TNG performance so lets not exaggerate here. Bateman is seated on the Bozeman bridge 'cos like what you're looking at is mostly CGI! (hmmm) but entertaining and fun right?  (at least he's not under the bridge)

Resistance is Futile


R is for Resistance. This famous line "Resistance is futile" was first uttered by Borg aliens aboard their fearless cube in the epic encounter with the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D giving chase in Star Trek: The Next Generation, "Best of Both Worlds, Part 1." 

This 1990 episode offered up one of the greatest cliff-hangers in television history and with Picard nabbed right from the bridge of Starfleets flagship, the Federation had lots of problems. TNG coined this "Resistance is futile" phrase that would live forever in the nightmares of fans—mainly because it was recycled .

Star Treks Q

 Q everyone knows Q, (John deLancie) He just turns up and harasses the USS Enterprise-D crew whenever it suits him. Q's one of several omnipotent beings who took it upon himself to test Federation lifeforms like captain Picard and remember poor Tasha yar? frozen solid like a snowcube.

Q states "what must I do to convince you people?"

Worf answer is priceless "Die"

Q "Very clever Worf, eat any good books lately?"

O is for OMG! Hes a Werewolf!

 O is for OMG! Hes a Werewolf! Who was Sam Clemens referring to as a Werewolf aboard the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D?



 Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) noted American author writer extraordinaire had a gift for speaking about reality ... However, Clemens was a bit satiric towards humanity until he travelled from the 19th century to the 24th century. He meets our USS Enterprise-D buddies Worf, Data and walks Deanna arm in arm down the corridor. I think he took seeing Worf rather well actually lol.

N is for Nineteenth Century Times Arrow

 N is for Nineteenth Century Times Arrow. Captain Picard, Riker, Troi and Geordie travel back in time to rescue Data. I've pieced together an amusing gag gif with Jerry Hardin (born 1929) aka Mark Twain the writer caught red-handed by Data and Guinan. Twain has a lot of fast talking to do only it isn't flying. Data displaced in time is trying to get back to the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D with Guinan's (Whoopi Goldberg) help and Twain is onto them.


CLEMENS: I must admit you've got me mystified. This contraption, for instance. It's very unusual. It looks quite futuristic. Tell me, might it have something to do with time shifts?

DATA: In a sense. The time shift is a gearing system I have invented for the horseless carriage.

CLEMENS: Hogwash!!! Do not insult me. You have come here to this century and brought your infernal technology with you for God only knows what purpose, but I have no doubt it will be the people of this century who will suffer for it.

GUINAN: My dear Mister Clemens, I do think we've heard enough. Mister Data's business is his own, and I will thank you to leave now. 

CLEMENS: Pardon me, Madam Guinan, but it is my business too. It is the business of all humanity, I believe, to stop both of you from whatever it is you are doing here. And that is what I intend to do.

STAR TREK MIND GAMES

M is for Mind Games.


Its a big universe trekkies so don't let Ktarians get hold of you.. Its good to keep an open mind when travelling the galaxy but you never know who you might meet. In Star Trek, certain species can control our minds or even read our thoughts! Resisting mind control while awake is an art  but when you're asleep, boom watch out!!! 



The Ktarian headset game was brought to the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D by commander Riker himself. the whole idea was to get everyone addicted so the Ktarians could take over the Enterprise-D and then the Federation.

Star Trek's TNG The Game stars Ashley Judd who plays Robin Leftler with TNG cast in this fun and games mystery. At first something just doesn't quite add up figures Wesley Crusher so he tells his babe in Ten Forward.....


 Robins character was ranked as the 71st most important character of Starfleet within the Star Trek science fiction universe. The game device stimulates part of the pleasure brain making the user want nothing except to play hooking the crew who become addicts. Whats fun about this episode is the adult staff are chasing Crusher and Lefler around the ship because the kids have figured out "the game" is dangerous.

What games do you enjoy playing?

Live Long and prosper, Trekkers

Klingon Skull Stew



 K is for Klingon skull stew. Ever heard of this food? This Star Trek delicacy originated on the Klingon homeworld Kronos only to find its way to Deep Space Nine... I think it might have been viewed as a mistake? on the Replimat on DS9. 

Skull stew was never mentioned in dialog but a photo of the dish created by scenic artist Doug Drexler was seen on the wall of the Replimat






Live long and Prosper, Trekkers

J is for Picard Jam Session - Patrick Stewart

 J is for Picards jam session!!! What Picard singing? actually believe it or not Patrick Stewart

received two (Olivier Award) and others I'm sure having played many Shakespearean roles, King Claudius being one- performing in over 60 productions and Star Trek the next generation.


Question: You know why Captain Picard is such a good rapper?

He follows the rhyme directive. (Alexa) 


and he keeps a straight face at the end.... engage!


Live long and prosper, trekkers.

Immediate Impact of Federation Ships



I is for Immediate Impact of Federation Starships at Wolf 359.

"Perhaps today is a good day to die!"


Who said that now I wonder? 

Ten years later after Star Treks TNG's 'Best of Both Worlds (2366), the battle of wolf 359 (2377) gave Worf commanding the Defiant the opportunity to fly into the big bad beautiful Borg cube. Our friend Michael Dorn, in true Klingon Warrior style - Worf is preparing to go out in a blaze of glory. Yeah lets blow these Borg demons up!!! How that must have shook his crew up, hehe. 
'Prepare for ramming speed.'
Which came first, Sector 001 or Wolf 359? Who's were you rooting for the Borg, Enterprise-E or Worfs Defiant? In any case have fun watching the video trekkers.

H is for Honest Harry's Hynotic Women


H is for Harry Mudd, honest, crafty and convincing Harry Mudd. Heres a conman who'd sell his own grandmother down the river to make some lithium... The fun begins when wheeler dealer Harry introduces his lively lovely cargo, Eve Magda and Ruth.


 "Gentlemen I look upon this work as a sacred public trust, I've devoted my whole life to it." so says Harcourt Fenton Mudd. The only thing is the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 computer doesn't believe him. Do you? Have a listen and decide....
So the ships computer answers........

 Incorrect

Mudd is infuriated but manages to laugh and shrug it off.



Who do you believe Harry Mudd or the Computer?



Live long and prosper
