Zats all Folks

 Z is for Zats all folks. 

I set my course ahead mark 4 bearing 26 shooting for the stars, 

Blessed are those of us who searched the heavens to write cheerfully for hours, 

Now I think its high time to break open the cigars. 

Thanks friends for stopping by, 

We've had fun and awesome high fives.

The founder Arlee of A to Z, 

Created the challenge to run with glee,  

Now everyone can enjoy and agree,  Its fun to trek under the sky by the sea -

after all it's free.

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 for Thrilling

T is for Thrilling. Its only fitting we give BlogMan  a shout out. I'm sure many of us will appreciate Blogman who rolled out the A to Z challenge which is now an annual blogverse event for talented bloggers. . 

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

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

High fives for making A to Z so! Thanks Blogman, "- Life is a marathon, run, fly, feet on the street -  live long and prosper.

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?"

P is for Play

 P is for Play. Whose buttons are Lwaxana Troi (daughter of the fifth house of Betazed) playing around with here on the flagship bridge of the galaxy class Federation's finest?..

1.Lieutenant Worf     or 

2. USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D?

 All is not what it seems, so when Worf catches her messing at his security station, what does Mrs Lwaxana Troi call the Klingon ?....... Mr Woof.....

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.

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?

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

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!

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........


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

Who do you believe Harry Mudd or the Computer?

G is for Galactic Barrier

G is for Star Trek's Galactic Barrier where God resides. Its the big question. Is God really at the centre of the galaxy? In the heart of space - Logically science has confirmed negative energy force fields surrounding the Milky Way Galaxy. This cosmic phenomenon sizes up with the Van Allen Belt which Earth astronauts must pass through to achieve cosmic orbit above the moon.

Matter, energy, space objects, hydrogen, helium, oxygen, carbon and ultra violet radiation we know.....but the all almighty God has yet to high five us happy earthlings . Maybe a starship can take us to all corners of creation!! Travelling through the great barrier will be a dangerous mission faced with unstable cosmic phenomenon but if there’s even a chance meeting with God the journey will be worth the risk...

Star Trek Fizzbin

F is for Fizzbin so what gives? You've heard of this classic Star Trek game I'm sure - cos like everyone wants "A Piece of the Action" right? A real game that requires intelligence, not some kids game!  Captain James T. Kirk made up the perplexing game of Fizzbin to fluster his captors on Sigma Lotia II. Heres how the cards square up.

 Players are dealt six cards, except the player on the dealers right, who gets seven. The second card is turned up, except on Tuesdays, and two jacks make half a fizzbin. Don't bother trying to get a royal fizzbin as the odds are astronomical. Feel like playing?

E is for Enslaved

E is for Enslaved by Elasian tears but could the myth be true? You might be surprised if a beautiful princess cried over you!!! Legend has it the biochemical compound of the tears of Elasian women overwhelms their victims who become romantically and emotionally obsessed with the woman as happened Captain Kirk in Star Trek's Elaan of Troyius. Its true believe me. How do you break free of the spell using the Dohlman of Elas infectious agent which acts as a aphrodisiac? Hey did you happen to see the most beautiful girl in the world?

D is for Dabo

D is for Dabo girls so do you want to play? Bring energy credits! In Star Trek DS9 Quark's bar establishment is set up to game customers out of their dough. Security Officer Odo doesn't approve but if all you want is a bit of fun.... where’s the harm in splashin' and cashin? Dabo is similar to an Earth roulette wheel, the dabo table is attended by beautiful dabo girls, whose main function is to distract players into blowing off steam and losing their bets. You can't win unless you dabo the latinum.

Cosmic Phenomenon in Space

C is for Cosmic Phenomenon but where is great space is it? Star Trek's starships USS Enterprise NCC 1701- A B C D and E have all encountered new worlds, civilizations during galactic voyages throughout the universe so think about it. Science has revealed space as mostly an empty void, with stars and planets making up little of its mass. Theres a lot more than matter and energy out there so say the experts but.... God is out there. As humanity reaches for the stars extraordinary interstellar phenomena like supernovas and comets paled in comparison to some of the cosmic anomalies in the mysterious realm of deep space but everyone wants to know.... 

 What do you say to God when you find Him with a starship?


Friday, April 02, 2021


 To B or not to B-4. Star Trek Nemesis is the big bang for B-4 brother Data. How did you react when Picard materialized on the bridge of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-E only to watch Shinzon's Romulan predator bird of prey burst into flames. Why did Data deactivate his less advanced B-4 brother only for Picard to re-activate?

A is for Anya the Allasomorph

 Hi Trekkers, A is for Allasomorphs but who are they?  In keeping with for this years 2021 A to Z challenge lets kick back with some friendly Shapeshifters natives of Daled IV in Star Trek "the Dauphin" episode. These creatures are able to change their molecular structure into other lifeforms. So when Salia and Anya boarded the federations flagship USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D on stardate 42568.8 ..... I guess you might say Worf had his hands full!
