Unfreakable: Can I just politely suggest that you add a "geekiest link of the year" category? Sure, we have a whole category for geek stuff but this is just operating on a whole different plane. I mean, damn.

I guess the tricky part would be finding all the other candidates from the last 11 months if we were gonna make a real contest out of it.

So much sadness...

Why did they turn the Klingons into retarded masochists? Too un-politically correct to make them look like Russians anymore? That next Gen stuff was just non stop horrible.

Bill Shatner's prog rock album?

So what's the deal with the Starfleet guy?  He's tending bar for a bunch of Klingons, in uniform for some reason, but he doesn't have a comm badge or rank insignia.
I guess maybe the Klingons kidnapped him and are forcing him to be their bartender, but he seems a little too happy about it.  Maybe he's AWOL?

See what you can come up with. I need the headline and link--and the link has to still work. For a proper contest, I'd probably need around 100 from 2013.

He's clearly former Star Fleet turned Maquis teaming up with the Klingons against the Cardassians.

What you've not learned today, is that its not a matter of spotting high levels of geek. You simply lay the trap, something blatantly wrong - "He's missing the dealiebobbers on his uniforgiggit!" - and the geeks will find you.

That could've been so much better if he just sounded more like a Klingon.

Instead it just sounded like some bad singer from Dubai or something.

That isn't a uniform, it's their version of camp meant to make the wearer feel like some sort of military basses.

The Klingons of course mock him constantly about it. No human uniform could ever compare to having a lobster grafted to one's forehead. That shiat is hardcore.

I'm going to file this under "Things that weren't really necessary" - and I say that as I'm procrastinating from writing about dead baseball players to write up Call of Cthulhu characters based on Larry, Darryl, and Darryl from Newhart.

There can't be hipsters in Star Trek. That show was meant to give us hope for the future.

Do they call them Klingons because they are geeky pieces of shiat?

You seem to be under the impression that Farkers never argue about anything and all agree on everything unanimously, hence no need for a vote. I foresee that going over extremely well.

Thank you. The headline needed this to be properly geeky.

Is it more or less geeky of me, that my first reaction was "I'd love to see this done with a better singer and better production values"?

Not that the guy singing is horrible, but... I'd really like it if Astley himself learned the words in Klingon and sang it for us.

The problem with that, if you could call it a problem, is that now I'm picturing Rick Astley wearing Klingon clothes and forehead ridges.

If that's the case, you would think it would be easy to convince Lady Gaga and P!nk to agree to be backup singers.

Just great.  Now the next step is to hear it in Vogon, a species also known for their poetry.

See, that makes sense. It's a music video. Starfleet wouldn't give anyone permission to use an actual officer\uniform in music vids, because they aren't likely to be corporate whores. So they're just half-assing it for the video.

/And I'd imagine the Klingons there have small-penis syndrome because they were kicked out for not being warrior-like enough
