It Wasn't Funny, But I Laughed Anyway
 
There are several Star Trek moments that stand out because they're humorous. Others stand out because they're not. Amongst even those moments that qualify as non-humorous, there are those that still managed to elicit a chuckle, or bring a smile to the faces of those watching. Several of these moments stand out in my memory, including but not limited to Chekov screaming after being burned by an electrical discharge from V'Ger, Will Decker's visible erection, Scotty hitting his head on a low-hanging pipe, Rom pouring liquid into his ear to treat an infection, Guinan whining about possible alterations to history, Deanna Troi existing, numerous "red-shirts" dying, Picard fighting his brother in the mud, Sisko revealing that Bashir was thrown over a table, Worf stabbing his brother and subsequently being arrested, the Doctor shrinking, Spock's unsuccessful mind-meld with V'Ger, Beverly Crusher being frozen in time as she's hit by a disruptor blast, Picard suffering from temporal psychosis, and Worf killing Weyoun.

I would imagine that there are several moments I've omitted. Feel free to share.

Dying blinded Spock walking into the wall in TWOK.

* every fight scene in TOS
* most Klingon acting, but esp Gowron and Chang
* every Weyoun death
* Iggy as a Vorta (though I guess that was supposed to be funny?)
* Worf "Constable...why are you talking to your beverage?"

It sucks when you burn the roof of your mouth on pizza.

Oh, you mean narm? Well, every serious line given to Avery Brooks.
Dude sure knows how to overact and dedicates himself to the art.


And, of course, there's Vreenak: "it's a faaaaake!".

And "belly kamehameha" scene in The Reckoning! Even Visitor and Lofton couldn't help laughing at it.
Man, DS9 sure had a lot of narm come to think of it.

Damar's reaction to Weyoun's death...

"Welll heeeeeellooooo..."
"Maybe you should talk to Worf again."

I'm really torn over Brooks' acting. Sometimes it's laughably Shatneresque hammy. Other times it's beautiful and tender, and some of the best acting in Trek. I guess I just love his cadences, strange as they sometimes are.

When that happens are there really pieces of skin hanging from the roof of one's mouth that you can feel with the tounge, or does it just seem that way? :)
