Why are they all so ripped?

Wow...just.. Wow. Also is it bad that I was thinking that on the Enterprise they would be celebrating something more universal then Christmas because of all of the different alien races and traditions on the ship. I blame my husband for thinking that. He made me watch all those 10 hour Star Trek marathons. It's his fault I even know anything about any of this. Santa being an alien energy ball explains a lot really, now I know how he fit in my chimney.

I don't fuck around.

caffman Dec 21st, 2009 06:26 PM

its a wonder this wasn't adapted to TV in season 7!

Ozzie Dec 21st, 2009 08:38 PM

Why did Data steal Colossus's vest? And on Christmas, no less?
Also, how the fuck do they know when Christmas is when they use Stardates?

HowardC Dec 21st, 2009 09:28 PM

This was blatently retarded. Ignoring the obvious stuff like the grinches and the clothes (they DID have shore leave clothes on the show ya know and they didn't look like rejected buck rogers costumes) christmas is NOT celebrated in starfleet... at least not in such a widespread way.

Why? Because star trek revolves around an evolved human race. In other words ridiculous nonsense like religion is all but extinct not by force, but by choice. The closest thing we ever saw were some visions of a victorian Xmas by picard in Generations and a forth-wall joke involving Q where the enterprise was essentially turned into the hallmark christmas ornament. Also the fact that roddenberry and 1/3 of the original series cast were jewish kind of made it dumb to do a christmas episode.

Long story short, the only holidays you ever see on star trek are alien holidays, because star trek is human-centric and is made out to show all alien races as primitative and/or inferior in some way. Seriously, star trek is specist.

It's amazing this comic ever got released as now days the paramont guys are real sticklers for "Cannon".

So horrible. :(

Captain Seamus Dec 21st, 2009 09:47 PM

When I first saw the header image for this article on the main page, it looked like Captain Picard had some kind of secret underarm laser cannon.

What's up with everyone's muscles?

Did Data read Seanbaby's Black Vulcan description and tried to match his wardrobe (Hi! I'm Black Vulcan because I'm black and I'm wearing what Mr. Spock would wear if he was gay.)

That was the guy's actual name straight out of the comic, and this was written in 1988, so no, it was not!

All I can say is, "All the Whos down in Whoville like Star Trek a lot"

Santa Comet vs The Space Grinches.
I've been missing out. I should read more comics.

Three words - Oh. My. God.

I'm sure glad they all followed that one simple rule to lose the excess weight and get fabulous abs. (just click here)

I think data is asking geordi if his comment "you too" is meant as a humorous reply to riker telling him to have fun. ah! the hilarity!

And is it just me, or is geordi telling wesley to turn around and check out the hotties when they are waiting to get into the holodeck? or is there another interpretation to his comment to "...enjoy the view."?

Seriously who is he?

Was this some old, unpublished Legion of Superheroes script?

Primortal Dec 28th, 2009 03:07 PM

Wow indeed. Space Grinches, Energy Santa Claus, and rejected Legion of Superheroes outfits.

Actually HowardC... they made mention of Christmas many times in the many Star Trek show. Not to THIS length, or this level of ridiculousness, but it apparently is still in existance in this "utopia future".

Am amused that they were trying to make Tasha Yar look sexy.

For some reason, I love Troi's "Ohhh." It's so half-hearted. "Ohhh. No... don't do that..."

Also, who doesn't rip off their clothes at a party yelling "Ready for intake!" After a few egg nogs, anyway.

Scooter Atreides Apr 9th, 2010 10:35 PM

Marvelous. As mind-shatteringly bizarre as the costumes were, my vote for most disturbing moment was Geordi, wearing Aquaman's gimp suit, tousling the hair of Wesley Crusher in a quasi-futuristic sailor outfit and encouraging him to turn around and check out his mom's ass
