You know you are a nerd when you understand and can relate to most of this article.

I don't need to understand this article one bit to laugh my head off at it.

PS. My only experience with Star Trek has been a computer game.

I haven't seen more than like 10 Star Trek episodes in 17 years. I found this to be hilarious anyway.

You were not supposed to hear about the Caligula program.
And, I always suspected Picard 'relied heavily' on Deanna Troy. (I would!)

I wonder if Wil is still around, he'd probably get a kick out Crusher getting some satire time...

best line in article :

"God, you are so French," mumbled Riker.

funny, yet we all know that it would violate the "temporal directive" not the "prime directive"

if you are gonna make jokes about trek, ya gotta be accurate.
2001-10-01 11:28:54 PM  
not so, rinpoche. the real fun is in making jokes with slight innaccuracies to get the trekkies to out themselves by correcting you. of course, this being the internet it doesn't really work as well because i think we all just kind of assume everybody we're typing at is a trekkie. i know i do.

Okay, I was so misquoted here. What I said was: "I know we're not supposed to mess with the 'healthy development' of other cultures,' but this is not farkin' healthy. And when is T'Pol going to show me her tits? I mean, farking christ of shiat, man. I gotta get me some of that hot Vulcan ass or my cock's going to explode out of my specesuit!"

Stupid press...they always get it wrong.

"the real fun is in making jokes with slight innaccuracies to get the trekkies to out themselves by correcting you." "you" you mean me or the writer?

because my point was to simply illustrate the inaccuracy of the those of us who would get it.

but you are correct in that it is more humorous when it is a little off...i suppose my post would have been better served without that last comment. thx meat.

as far as boobies from T'Pol, you are gonna have to wait until enterprise gets cancelled from UPN and moves over to late night HBO. At that point the plot takes a weird turn where the enterprise becomes a prison ship, "EnterprOZ"
And T'pol seduces all of the inmates (which comes suprisingly easy)...all the while Archer has to sit by idle, regretting his earlier comment about her "burying" something and realizing his missed opportunity for sexual innuendo. heh.

As much of a fan of Next Gen as I maybe, I think this could have been funnier with the original crew.

Still, darn funny.
