Caption This: Discovering How Aliens See Us

'Trip' Tucker and a silver-clad orange alien standing in a technicolor spider-web in space.
From the Star Trek: Enterprise episode “Unexpected”, when the show ventured into any MTv music video circa 1982.

“So, is it true your people learned everything about humans from watching the Sid and Marty Krofft Supershow?”

(And as before, I’m interested what you kind folks make of this scene.)

    1. You know, I have heard that on Deep Space Nine the writers wanted to do an episode where an alien disguised himself as a leprechaun and appeared to Chief O’Brien, but his actor (Colm Meany) said No.. I can’t swear he threatened to punch them, but they did rewrite the idea.

  1. “Captain, I have a migrane….”

    (And also a couple of flashbacks to ‘H R Pufinstuf’ and ‘Lidsville’, both of which showed on NZ TV in black and white. I can’t help thinking they lost something as a result…)


    1. They surely lost something in black-and-white. I was disappointed when I could only watch the Krofft shows on the black-and-white set. They read all right, at least; the sets and costumes were designed to appear cleanly enough without color. But without the color there’s more time to focus on thinking about wait, how did Witchiepoo turn Jack into a robot exactly?
