Why not put it sideways, thats what i always do in these situations.

Is this from a cutscene or is it in the movie?

Re: It Wasn't Funny, But I Laughed Anyway

At least some of the incidents cited in the OP were, in my opinion, deliberately intended to be humorous, including:
  • "Scotty hitting his head on a low-hanging pipe"
  • "Rom pouring liquid into his ear to treat an infection"
  • "Picard suffering from temporal psychosis"
In the unintentionally humorous category, I would add, all from TFF:
  • Kirk's fall off of El Capitan,
  • the raising of the barricade when shuttlecraft Galileo executes emergency landing plan B as in barricade,
  • the levitation boot ride up the turboshaft past the two deck 52's and deck 78,
except that in all of those scenes, I actually wanted to cry.

It's in the film. If you watch the scene immediately after the transporter accident in which Kirk is trying to find a turbolift, you'll see this exact moment unfold on screen.

That's true, it is in the film, it is unintentionally funny, but as EmperorTiberius says, that's not an erection.

That somewhat infamous scene is right after the transporter accident when Kirk get disoriented in the corridor.

And Emperor Tiberius is correct, that's not an erection, it's Steven Collins natural state. The "Decker-unit" is very apparent in several of Collins TV and movies roles.

Re: It Wasn't Funny, But I Laughed Anyway

Depends on how big his "phaser" is.

If he has a small one when its not erect i can imagine him having a one in this scene and he quickly had to cover it up and that was his solution, to put it up so its not that obvious.

that was an unfortunate choice of words. He doesn't look all that excited. Maybe it was that woman with the big butt that just passed by. His isn't as gratuitous as Trip's during the decon scene in Broken Bow. He was really excited to be serving with T'Pol.

Re: It Wasn't Funny, But I Laughed Anyway

Well, I can't watch TOS without laughing, but that may be because I find the idea of a starship mostly controlled by toggle-switches hilarious. Then, of course, there's Shatner's acting and pretty much every fight scene ever in the entire show.

Pretty much any time Deanna Troi shows emotion in TNG is unintentionally hilarious. Double that hilarity if she's interacting with one of the better actors in the cast (the contrast makes the overacting even more obvious).

I tend to find Worf funny when he's supposed to be serious too.

This Troi scene from "Night Terrors" comes to mind:

I'm really torn over Brooks' acting. Sometimes it's laughably Shatneresque hammy.
Definitely. The best example of that IMO is is the "IT"S REEALLLL" scene in "Far Beyond the Stars".



It's like he's having a seizure at some parts.
