This is a favorite in our house. Ovoids for breakfast now invariably elicit the exclamation "EHHHHHHHGGS! NO MORE NIGHTMARES!"

Highly illogical. That egg isn't scrambled.

Spock's reaction to the lack of food in the house is pretty much like mine when I've forgotten to shop.

Spock has apparently been kidnapped and replaced by a Romulan spy.

I'm glad I'm not the only dude who keeps a bathmat-sized hash brown under my couch.

I seriously read the word "bathmat" and wondered what kind of Klingon weapon it is, and why I hadn't heard of it before. Is it like a bat'leth? A hegh'bat? A kut'luch? A mek'leth? What the hell is a bathmat, I wondered, for several seconds. I swear.

No, Worf's bat'leth is clearly visible in the umbrella stand.

CHANCELLOR GOWRON, I CHALLENGE YOU TO DEADLY COMBAT. PICK UP YOUR BATHMAT AND PREPARE TO DO BATTLE!

A klingon bathmat is basically just a spiky, pissed-off snapping turtle in front of the tub.

I've been saving this hashbrown for years!

I like that in this universe, the size of Kirk's head accurately depicts the size of his ego. And what's up with his exile? No longer part of the Star Trek Family?

He's like an uncle that lives in the next town, smirkette.

Dear Lord, this is fantastic!

My son is starting to get into it; apparently, though, he can't decide between calling it "Star Track" or "Star Trick". The latter one always gets me giggling, so I'm not in any rush to correct it.

I'm not sure if I happened upon this video at a lucky moment, or if there's some sly YouTube jiggery-pokery at play, but the view count was stuck at a particular number.

I was really hoping for more episodes!

This pretty much resembles all the TNG episodes that take place in the holodeck.

Juliapangolin, I believe there's at least one other on the channel...

I'm also hoping that if his view counts go up, this young prodigy will grace us all with more tales from (domestic) space.

This kid is going to have to yank the title of WORLD'S DORKIEST SEVEN YEAR OLD from my withered, thirtysomething year old claws...

(Also, I want my Counselor Troi and Dr. Crusher dolls back!)

I TOTALLY USED TO DO THIS. Trek just wasn't a word I'd encountered and Track seemed to make way more sense.

Star Trick is just a mean thing to call Captain John Kirk.

It nice to see someone finally write a plot that gives Troi something important to do.

I KNOW! When the kid said "And Troi is listening" I was prepared to have to go learn her/him (????) a thang or two.

You have done well, nerd grasshopper.
