Star Trek Rules

Rule 1.

If Riker is talking to you he must put his foot up on the nearest desk.


Rule 2

Any Scientists working in isolation will have gone rouge in some way.


Rule 3

If something goes wrong on the enterprise get to a service tube and climb up the ladder it usually helps.

Rule 4

Tachyon beams can serve as the resolution to any plot requirement. If for some reason a tachyon beam cannot resolve a situation, try an inverse tachyon beam.

Rule 11: When faced with a life-threatening conundrum and your normal solution isn't working, flip it around! That's what Geordi always does and it always works.
