    My brother took the picture but I was the one who spotted this random starship on the sidewalk. Have you ever seen something unintentional that reminded you of Trek in an odd place?

    Not exactly unintentional... I saw an online ad offering 'sweet, heartwarming vintage images from the past' or something like that. The picture in the ad was a screenshot from TOS "What are Little Girls Made Of," showing the android Andrea with Christine Chapel. I found that to be rather odd.

    I once had a piece of toast with Captain Robau's face on it. But of course, I ate it immediately to try to absorb its power - didn't even think to grab a picture first. ;)

    A surprising find of my own. I went to St. Jacobs with some ladies from my church and while perusing the restaurant gift shop, noticed this among all the wooden toy cars, trains and planes:

    One of the malls in my area had a woodcraft gift store that didn't last long. They had some clocks with unlicensed Star Trek TOS artwork on them.

    There was a hood ornament from an old car. Remind you of anything?

    Ah, the Sh'Raan-class starship immortalised as a hood ornament! Good spot.

    When I lived in Cincinnati years ago, there was a business in an hi-tech industry area called Laforce...

    Always read that as Laforge...

    I actually discovered this several years ago, in a park not far from my old house in Chula Vista, CA. Someone had drawn a TWOK-style insignia on a paper plate! I instantly pictured a group of teenagers wanting to roleplay a diplomatic dinner from Star Trek, and drawing these insignias on paper plates (which sounds more like something I would have done as a teenager than what most kids do these days LOL). It actually stayed there in the park for several weeks, until someone threw it away. I don't condone littering of any kind, but this was actually a pretty cool discovery.

    This is a cool thread. I personally do not have anything to share, but I always take inspiration from anything and everything. :)

    That's odd...which browser are you using? For some reason it shows up on Google Chrome on my computer, but not on Microsoft Edge. Haven't tried Firefox yet, but I'm guessing it wouldn't work there, either. I even tried signing out of Google to see if it was only viewable by me, and I can still see it on Chrome.

    @Admiral Archer, I can't see the image in your post either (neither in Chrome, Firefox or Safari). Looking at the jumble of code you have pasted into it, it looks like the reason might lay there. Can you try to get another link to the image or maybe host it on a service like imgur?

    Code:

    HOLY MOLY. Apologies, I had no idea the code got so convoluted! I'm not even sure how I managed to see it show up in the first place. Let's try this again, shall we? I'm just gonna post the link this time, since I apparently don't know how to embed things. LOL
