Do you know they're supposed to be home-made? There are very good TNG uniforms available for purchase.

The Star fleet uniforms are easy to come by. That Borg getup, on the other hand, would take a lot of time invested.

Would it really? Raj is loaded. He has more money than the rest of the group, combined. If he wanted it, he could buy costumes directly from set. And he probably has.

This week's episode is going to be very fun.
I think the costumes look too good, there are some very good cosplayers but most aren't and I doubt these 4 could whip up costumes like that, they almost look like they walked straight of the TNG set.

It's impressive and I love that characters on one of the most successful network shows dress up in TNG costumes, but looking at it from an in-show perspective it's just unrealistic. When they dressed up before they all wore crappy costumes (Flash or the DC females in the wil Wheaton bowling episode), that fits the tone of the show much better.
Not really.. back in my day (way back ) i was considering buying a TNG uniform but the commercially available ones looked like crap and were not better than a good T-Shirt so i took a look at various fanboards and often enough found advice to have it tailored by a tailor which wouldn't have been more expensive that a normal suit off the rack in the store.

Given what the guys spend on comics and merchandise (and i've seen some prices of it over the years.. they ain't cheap!) i don't believe it's past any of them to spring for a TNG uniform that way.

Re: The Big Bang Theory

I'm a bit puzzled at why they dubbed Amy's lines in this episode . . .

Re: The Big Bang Theory

I'm pretty sure Raj was wearing Worf's actual warrior sash. It was too big on him and it looked like it was the same one. Lord knows I've seen it enough to examine it closely.

I didn't notice, I was too busy being embarrassed by the whole "nerds in public" scenario. I mean, really, a slurpee toss and someone yelling "Nerds!"? What, did they bring the writer of Weird Science out of suspended animation for the episode?

That scene was written by Ryan Murphy.

Re: The Big Bang Theory

Really? Because I was going to say that John Hughes seemed more like an old fashioned cemetery plot sort of guy than suspended animation... I might have seen his grave in a documentary they made about him last year.

Although he's been dead for 3 years and Home Alone 5 just came out.

The uniform I borrowed from a friend for this was pretty much perfect:

The dustbuster makes me think. Was the Enterprise self cleaning? Or was there a housekeeping staff that went in and dusted and cleaned everyone's quarters?
