    Lots of luck with that. I asked T'Bonz about adding a tribble, and gave her one. She said she'd ask, but nothing happened. I assume that nobody on the tech end is too interested in adding any Trek-themed smileys.

    That might the problem, you gave someone a tribble.
    They now have little or no time to do anything else than feed the flock.

    Virtual ones reproduce via copy+paste, and I think she's probably too smart to do that.

    You mean adding any "new" Trek themed smileys, as we have quite a few. :)

    I only made a joke of it, but if there is some strong interest in having a few emojis added, you could start a new topic on it and provide a poll to vote on them. And then once the poll closes, tally up the votes and present them to T'Bonz.

    I'd have thought it would be understood that I meant in addition to the ones we already have.

    Serious inquiries only, of course. I'm not about to request that the Sombrero Tribble and the Sombrero Borg be added.

    OK, Trek fans, please start an emoji thread in General Trek instead of adding to this thread.

    ... you hold a grudge against Shakespeare for stealing some of Picard's best quotes.

    When you're writing a fanfic about Data and it's already 30 pages long...and it's only the beginning !

    When your smartphone has a specific download gallery for TNG memes.

    When you dream about TNG characters and wake up in the middle of the night with great fanfic ideas !

    I don't think it's weird ! I think it's awesome ! I love drawing my favourite fictional characters, too ! Maybe we could make some art trade ?

    Eeerrr, everyone is free to write whatever they want, y'know :biggrin:
    I said that because I'd like someone skilled at drawing humans to draw at least the cover illustration for my fic. I can draw animals pretty well, and cartoon-styled humans...But I'm not good with more realistic, nuanced humanoid portraits :shrug:

    Yea, my portraits are good.
    I had a hard time with Worf because of his head!:klingon:
    What did you want drawn?
    Like if there is an alien, it might be difficult to agree on what it looks like. ( if that makes sense , it doesn't probably.):)

    TauCygna & Nakita, can you please switch to personal messages to continue the discussion. I'll be interested in seeing the results of this collaboration.

    I would like to, but unfortunately I can't use private messages yet :sigh:

    BTW...You know you really love TNG (mostly Data) when it's 2 : 30 AM and.....

    When after some time you go back to watch few episodes of TNG and you get that familiar warm feeling like you are at home.
    Or maybe when you are considering growing the Riker Beard.

    When you are excited you are not considered a newbie anymore on that forum so you can finally get an avatar of your fav character ;)

    When you order TNG novels from the other side of the Atlantic ocean and make the effort to read them in English, despite the fact it's not your native language !

    When you bookmark a Star Trek episodes transcripts website, so you can access the script anytime for further reference !

    When you know the episodes' names in original version better than in your own language !
