On TNG some male crew members wear dresses, you usually see them wandering the halls. There are even fan versions.

Describing Ferengi boots: They look like something Lori Petty circa 1992 might wear, and that is an image I am totally on board with.

Brilliant.

If you need to really get your Trek on, and you have EPIX as one of your available channels, you can watch William Shatner interview all the other Star Trek captains in... The Captains. And you can contribute your own KHAAAAAN to The Long Khan.

All that aside, this post is amazing. Thanks for digging it up and sharing, Whelk. I may have to refrain from calling you Larry for a while.

D'oh!

I'll be in my holodeck.

Cause I'm on a binge of TNG recently, which lead to finding this blog, I feel like I have to talk about the holodeck.

For all the many many many problems the holodeck introduces, so many could be fixed with a single rule:

Every holodeck program made as to be public.
posted by The Whelk at 9:41 PM on July 3, 2011


Has ti bem rather. If there was no way to create, publish or access holodeck programs privately, social pressure would mold use unti whatever is considered normal use.

Then again for all we know crazy sex fantasias are just a part of recreational life in the 24 th century. It would explain why everyone seems so relaxed and sexless.

Aside from Riker of corse, cause he's a himbo.
