Things We Will Never See On Star Trek

I am also nostalgic for the unfunny geek internet humor of 95/96 vintage.

Sorry dude, that was mean.

if i remember right, the replicator's drinks use synthehol, instead of alcohol..

Oh, man. I'm gonna cut and paste that into an email to everyone in my address book.

Then I'll just nip down the corridor and hang myself.

"The crew of the Enterprise discovers a totally new lifeform, which later turns out to be a rather well-known old life-form wearing a funny hat."

Best one of the bunch...but then they are ALL good -- and true.

Heh...Tasha Yar's relatives...

I always thought it was funny that on TNG, they always showed Earth as pristine and idyllic. You'll never see earth as the burned out ball of crap that it will inevitably become. There was a bit of a nod to this in Alien Resurrection: "Earth? What a shithole!" Now that, is more like it.

Come on now, this site can't be that bad.

I mean, it is part of the Winner's Circle, after all.

Hee hee hee. Don't mind us, Orange Goblin. We're nice people, really.

Snarking about 1995-vintage culture is so-o-o 2003...

Somebody remind me about the clarion call of some that Metafilter is dedicated to "The Best of the Net..."

See? I said the other half of the 'net was thanks to Star Trek.

Nope. I'm stumped.

Does anyone have a link to the "rules of bedroom golf"? It would make a great follow-up FPP.

Would dancing hamsters be a double post?
posted by Nelson at 2:03 PM on February 5, 2004


In my defence, it doesn't appear to have been posted on MeFi before. However, I gather this is because it predates 1999...sorry everyone. Hopefully I'm not the ONLY one who hasn't seen it...

13. The crew of the Enterprise disperse, Sulu gets his own ship, and nobody suffers major emotional trauma.

I'm positive that Sulu is featured as having his own ship in Voyager, during some sort of space/time continuum problem-related something or other whatever episode.

wendell made me laugh.

Goblin, either I haven't seen it before or it was such a long time ago that I did see that I might as well not have seen it.

if you liked barking spider, don't miss the twinkies project, featuring microwaves, food and fun!

Much like most Star Trek episodes themselves. ;-P

I hadn't seen it, thought it was pretty good, and thanks OG for trying. You are all horrid bastards!

Somebody says, "You know, the Enterprise-D looks really stupid! What is it, a `Close Encounters' reject???"

I'd ask if you had to watch Star Trek to find this funny, but I know the answer because I've watched ST and this isn't funny.

As a trek fan, one thing I've never seen on Star Trek is an actor who looked dorky enough to be one of my fellow Star Trek fans. Was that on the list?

This was one of the first non-academic things I remember seeing on the web ever. It does make me nostalgic.

Sulu did have his own ship, after the Enterprise crew disbanded. (ref: Star Trek VI)

Troi is seen bathing when she is turned into a reptilian species. (ref: Genesis)

I know too much about Star Trek. (ref: Above two entries)

I thought it was a nice funny. I have probably seen it before, but it had been so long that my brain reset, and it was funny again.
posted by UKnowForKids at 7:39 PM on February 5, 2004


What a bunch of humourless bastards! OK, so it was old, everyone has seen it before (except, apparently, Orange Goblin, Hildago and me) and it was only marginally funny in a fairly predicable sort of way, but maybe this is the best of the web (if you discount everything that has already been linked on MeFi, anyway). Have you ever considered that? Huh? Have you?

It's Comedy Aluminum and yummy in its awful badness.
posted by y2karl at 10:15 PM on February 5, 2004


Yes, but is it transparent Aluminum worth trading future secrets for? (you know, for the whales, and the future, and all that?)
posted by Wulfgar! at 10:41 PM on February 5, 2004


Its funny enough, and I can laugh at myself for wanting to also take it seriously because I love sci-fi. And I never saw it before either. So there.

And there's the episode where Worf pisses himself (ref: prostate in paradise)

Never apply a Star Trek solution to a Babylon 5 problem.

That's not on the list, but it should be.
