Post your TrekBBS "Blasts from the Past" here!

Inspired by the "Old-Timers" thread:

A few years ago I managed to hook up the hard drive from my old, dead eMac and recover a bunch of files ... including a folder full of random stuff I'd saved from TrekBBS in, mostly, 2003 and 2004.

First up, and no, I was not the person who made these:











OK, I'm sure some of you have material you can add...

Re: Post your TrekBBS "Blasts from the Past" here!

Here's one that I am to blame for ... dating from late 2003, a sketch for one of the Grand Miscellaneous Competitions titled "Judge Bonzie."

Justice has a name, and it's ...



...Judge Bonzie!

Now, here's your host, the one and only T'Bonz!

T'Bonz: Good afternoon and welcome to the show. Today's plaintiff, Asyncritus, claims that Asyncritus wrongfully slandered him in Moderator Actions. Asyncritus, on the other hand, maintains that the post in question was not slander at all because it was true. First, we'll hear from Asyncritus. Please tell the court what happened the day of the incident in question.

Asyncritus: Well, Judge, I had just gotten up that morning to check the BBS when I found a "notify mod" message in my inbox. I was about to pop over to TNZ to see what was the matter when I noticed that there was an MA post by Asyncritus showing up on the front page. Naturally, I was curious, since I knew I hadn't made any posts in MA recently enough to still show up on the front page. So I clicked on the forum, and what do I see? A post by Asyncritus calling me a dirty, double-crossing scum-sucking son of a bitch!

Asyncritus: But HE --

T'Bonz: Quiet! You'll get your turn.

Asyncritus: See, Judge? This is what he's like! He always interrupts me, and then he starts calling me names too!

T'Bonz: Let's keep this trial on topic, please.

Asyncritus: Yes, your honor. Well, naturally, I responded.

T'Bonz: What did you say?

Asyncritus: Well, I called him a backstabbing whoremonger. Then some of the people from TNZ piled into the thread and started beating on me, and by the time it was over Neroon had had to use the fire hose to clear everybody out -- but I still received no apology from Asyncritus!

T'Bonz: And Asynritus, what's your version of the story?

Asyncritus: Well, first of all, the reason I called him a dirty, double-crossing scum-sucking son of a bitch is because he and his hooligan buddies ganged up on me in QS&F.

T'Bonz: His hooligan buddies?

Asyncritus: Yes -- Asyncritus, Asyncritus and Asyncritus. Those four have done nothing but bully me ever since I came on staff.

Asyncritus: That is NOT true, your honor!

T'Bonz: Shhhh!

Asyncritus: But your honor --

T'Bonz: DON'T MAKE ME COME DOWN THERE, MISTER!

Asyncritus: Yes, ma'am.

T'Bonz: So you say these four were ganging up on you? Was it just you?

Asyncritus: No, not at first. Asyncritus stood up for me, God bless his soul. But I haven't heard from him since Asyncritus took him out back that one night with a baseball bat.

Asyncritus: I object, your honor!

Asyncritus: He doesn't want the truth to come out, your honor! He's afraid!

Asyncritus: Oh please! You wouldn't know the truth if it threw a glass of Klingon blood wine in your face!

T'Bonz: ENOUGH!!! I'm handing out one official warning to each of you for confusing the heck out of this court. Court is adjourned!

Now, let's go to our studio audience to see what they think about how Judge T'Bonz handled this case. What do you think, sir?

Asyncritus: Well, I think he had it coming.

Coming up next on Judge Bonzie: You won't believe who's suing Kass for sexual harassment!

(Cut to commercial)

Re: Post your TrekBBS "Blasts from the Past" here!

From the same contest:

Trekkie Wonderland

(Sung to the tune of "Winter Wonderland")

Imzadi -- Are you lurking?
'Cause with you -- boys are flirting
The girls are a sight,
We're happy tonight
Posting in a Trekkie wonderland.

Gone away -- is the Blue Board
Here to stay -- is the new board
Sing a badgery song
When Kass comes along
Posting in a Trekkie wonderland.

In the Neutral Zone we'll have a flame war
With Enterpriser, Crosis and some more
Folks may start to get a little testy
But AlphaMan will bring them back to shore.

Later on -- we'll conspire
If we have -- the desire
To bump a spam thread
That used to be dead
Posting in a Trekkie wonderland.

When ThankQ has a party, we all show up
With Treker, Adam and T'Bonz as well
No matter what you drink you'll never throw up
If you did then Lisa sure would give you hell.

Chicken's back -- ain't it thrilling?
Flukie's av -- is kind of chilling
So come in and play,
We'd like you to stay
Posting in a Trekkie wonderland!

I remember when this forum was unmoderated. It was probably the funniest forum I'd ever been on, then and now. Made a welcome break from the stiffness of Sci-Fi Art.com

Lisa eh? Whatever happened to her? God, I can't even remember what any of that drama was over. I only recall acting like a right twat at times.

I hope she still has that buzzy bee I sent her.

That's nice, but it doesn't have ALL the episodes... Oh well, it'll do.
