I'd say twenty years is way beyond "too soon". If you feel otherwise, then I honestly apologize. The Sombrero phenomenon is harmless fun celebrating Roddenberry's creation. I'd hope he would have smiled at his inclusion in that fun.

I do recall, now that you mention it, but hadn't had it consciously in mind when I made that post. The Dark Side, hmmm...

I don't feel it's too soon, I was just wondering as why it wasn't done sooner in the thread as well, it took quite a while to reach the point we got to put Gene in one.

I found it rather odd & thought it was out of respect that one hadn't been done before, that's all.

Granted, Gene had a terrific scene of humor & would of loved this crazy thread.

It's not at risk under the new rule until it hits 8,000 posts, so BWN is safe for a long time to come.

Is it too early to start a campaign to see Harry Mudd wearing a sombrero?
