What your favorite Trek says about you.

This made me chuckle this morning.

That DS9 ensemble shot is bad in a funny way. Everyone looks awkward and unready for the photograph!

The TNG movie bit was funny. Spot on.

Re: What your favorite Trek says about you.

Yeah, pretty amusing. The TNG movie one is funny, as is the Enterprise one with the bit about being pulled into a co-worker's interdepartmental fight with a shadowy figure in a rival company that you never did figure out was all about.

I also like some of the comments people tagged into the photos, particularly the TNG (series) one which shows a picture from Code of Honor and says "you used to be a little racist, but you got better."

So fitting. Loved the Original series movie one, the TNG one and the TNG movies one. So, so funny.

Re: What your favorite Trek says about you.

A few of them were clever, I like the DS9 one about the misanthropy and paranoia.

The line about experimenting with New Age religion and visions made me laugh. The 'mystical' Bajoran scenes could be so -inducing.
One thing's for sure; the author is definitely not a Niner.

Re: What your favorite Trek says about you.

Yeah, my conspiracy theory is that the author hates DS9, hates religion, and hates people who have a love for either. :P

Re: What your favorite Trek says about you.

The first thing I wondered about was the TOS picture. Somebody please help me with that, looks like first season and apparently it's the De Salle character instead of Chekov.

I think TOS is a good summary. I disagree with TAS. We have two outdoor cats but I hardly ever hang out with these (although I should, plenty of garden work to be done).

TNG: "You're constantly trying to reach consensus with everybody, and it kind of drives people nuts but they also love you for it."

Totally wrong. I suggest to take a look at things from a different angle, it kind of drives people nuts and they hate me for it.

TNG: "You have a problem with bullies, especially bullies who try to force everyone to conform."

That's correct, two recently closed threads here at the BBS are a graphic testament to that.

DS9: "And you like to experiment with religion, especially like Kabbalah or anything New Age that involves lots of cool visions that THEY don't want you to see."

That's not how I see it, but my best friend's ex-wife and my ex-wife seemed to cherish that particular aspect of DS9.

Man some of the posts in the comment section are just as funny as the article content.

I think it's a screencap from Arena.

Since my faves are TOS and DS9, I like to go out at night and have adventures hating new and different people.

Thanks, yes it is: http://tos.trekcore.com/hd/albums/1x18hd/arenahd692.jpg

And it's Lt. DePaul, played by Sean Kenney (funny, my first reaction was wondering whether somebody had photoshopped Captain Pike into Chekov's place).

Well, and Lt. Leslie gives us a good idea what this bridge railing is good for - excercise!
