    Our Photoshop Awards go to

    Nerys Myk:

    [​IMG]
    WORF: The Captain has been kidnapped by a bunch of zombie-cyborgs bent on enslaving the Galaxy. Could things get any worse?
    SHELBY: Things just got worse.


    Cutie McWhiskers:

    Shivkala:

    [​IMG]

    Picard: Captain's Personal Log--From time to time, I like to contact other Galaxy class ships and just see what they've done to them. Note to self, Yamato has an interesting teal design on the security console behind the captain's chair, but the printed circuit board painting does not look good at all.

    Varley: You, know, Jean-Luc, when you start monologing a Captain's Log, the rest of us can hear you. And this painting really ties the bridge together, damn it!


    Finn:

    [​IMG]

    CMO Log: Weird, Those ghosts turned me on...


    Mr Soak:

    [​IMG]

    Security Cheif's Log: We have lured Commander Shelby to the Borg cube. She has noty yet realised that her phaser doesn't work. The rest of the away team will transport back as soon as we retrieve Captain Picard. We hope the Borg accept this exchange.


    [​IMG]

    Many KBLs!

    inflatabledalek:

    [​IMG]

    Picard: Why do we have carpet on a starship anyway?


    captain crow

    [​IMG]
    Worf: Damn. No bars in here.


    CorporalCaptain

    [​IMG]

    Worf: (surreptitiously) OK, Commander Riker, we've maneuvered Shelby so that she's standing under the pointy device. Now what?


    Leviathan:

    [​IMG]

    LaForge: He's outside our space-time continuum....leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once when wrong and hoping that each time his next leap will be the leap home.

    Picard: I've seen this before. We have to stop him before ends up captaining a ship in our past.


    Laura Cynthia Chambers:

    [​IMG]
    Worf: "Got any more of those complementary mints left?"

    Many thanks to everyone who participated and congrats to our winners!

    And now, I've been thinking lately that it's easy for the women of TNG to not get that much time in the contest. So i wanted to have a contest where the male characters are not featured. Strictly speaking the images here do not pass the Bechdel test as there is discussion of male characters in some of these scenes, but it would not be perfect.

    Troi: Let's try tobe friends with her before Guinan magically becomes her BFF.

    [​IMG]

    Troi: People who have glass tables shouldn't throw punches.

    [​IMG]

    Guinan: Is there a problem?

    Troi: This chocolate cake has raspberry filling. Get me a proper chocolate cake!


    [​IMG]

    Crusher: You should be able to sense more than just tension, fear and confusion. Why can't you?!

    [​IMG]

    Lwaxana: This tastes terrible.

    Troi: Oh no. Computer locate Ambassador Citrus.

    RO: Should I bring up the fact my entire race is enslaved now and the Federation isn't doing anything? Nah, want to enjoy the conversation.

    [​IMG]

    K'ELYHR: What? I'm not venting. Table breaking is the most popular Klingon sport. I was on the Varsity team!

    [​IMG]

    DEANNA: Guinan, do you have any REAL chocolate? I mean real chocolate, not the artificial replicated version.
    GUINAN: Last time I told you it was real chocolate it was actually replicated and you couldn't tell the difference.
    DEANNA: ...Nono, it just TASTES BETTER when it's real! I swear!

    [​IMG]

    BEVERLY: These readings...I knew it! She's lying about being empathic and just stating the obvious reading of the person's body language!

    [​IMG]

    DEANNA: Mother...EAT THE CARROT!

    Thanks for the win!

    [​IMG]

    Troi: You're right, Beverly, our jobs are similar. We should team up!

    Crusher: It's so obvious! I heal their bodies, you heal their minds.

    Troi: Let's start with Ensign Ro, I bet working together, we can get her sorted out.

    Crusher: It's probably a man. I bet she has a thing for Captain Picard. I mean, I never saw the attraction, but, to each their own.

    Troi: Damn it, Beverly, we were coming so close to passing the Bechdel test!

    [​IMG]

    K'Ehlyr: Oh, you think this is bad? You should have seen what happened when my grandmother took a human as a hostage!

    Troi: I thought your grandmother surgically altered an albino Klingon into a human?

    K'Ehlyr: It's...complicated!

    [​IMG]

    Guinan: Yes, good, keep eating those sundaes.

    Troi: Guinan?

    Guinan: Don't mind me. I'm not trying to fatten you up. Certainly not to eat you.

    [​IMG]

    Crusher: Ewww, Worf? Really? You are having sex dreams about Worf?

    [​IMG]

    Troi: Mother, please tell me you're not going to pull the "grape tomato in the cleavage" trick again!

    K'EHLYR: "Contemplate, for a moment, the beauty and asymmetry. The tines on this sculpture stand out, warning all who pass by of the danger involved. Elegant and deadly."
    TROI: "That's just a table Wesley knocked upside down."
    K'EHLYR: "This...Wesley...is he a formidable warrior? Can he fight a targ one-handed while navigating the echelons of the Council; hunting in the field and the halls of power? Does he have many deeds to his name? Any glorious epics worthy of song?"
    TROI: "He gets yelled to 'shut up' a lot."
    K'EHLYR: "Shut Up??"
    TROI: ".....Well.....the Captain wants to execute him...."
    K'EHLYR: "A formidable opponent then. I shall have to meet with this Wesley...ahaha!"
    TROI: "The rest of us would be forever in your debt!"

    Guinan: Mom! Dad! It’s evil! Don’t touch it!
    Troi: Nobody's going to get that one.
    Guinan: I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe...Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion...I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate...All those moments will be lost in time…like tears in rain…...Time...to...die.
    Troi: You are just going to keep trying things until something works, aren't you.
