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


  1. I’m quoting Kes who tried blocking the alien 8472 thoughts ‘the weak will perish’ invading her mind -

  2. I wonder whether our appearance would frighten some aliens. It should.

    1. Good point EC but I think my scary GIF has frightened folks away today, :( despite my good intensions, O well.

  3. Star Trek aliens weren't so terrible to look at. Other franchises had some awful aliens.

  4. I entirely agree Liz, Aliens were enough to make you skip dessert provided dinner was still erm not yuked up all over the floor or someone.

  5. I find some people think the same about critters on earth

  6. I have to admit this species 8472 along with this "gif" were a mistake. The enlarged quote are not my words but the creatures thoughts Mike from Star Trek Voyager.


Ignore the robot question and just punch it!
