“Um, Scotty … there’s a handle. A handle. Just turn the … it’s … you have to put your hand out and … you just … ”
Or, well, a 24th century replica of the 23rd century, while he’s in the 24th century because … oh, look, it just makes sense if you see the episode, OK? Meanwhile if you have an idea what to do with this picture please share it! We’ve just got till the year 2369 or something to do something for the poor guy.
Before I get into this, a couple days ago my mathematics blog had another group of comic strips to talk about. I like that sort of talk and I hope you’ll at least give it a read and see whether you like it too. That done, remember like 1992 when we tried out watching Deep Space Nine? Remember that we stopped, but not why? Here’s why. It’s an episode called “Move Along Home”, when a flock of tabletop gamers from the Gamma Quadrant invaded the station. Anyway, here’s what you missed from that episode, if you didn’t watch it in the first place:
A daring choice at the Stardate 46600 Sommelier Competition as Commander Sisko decides to pair a Denebian coq au vin with a tall glass of Strawberry Fanta Zero.
“The little dangly thing at the back of your throat has a smiley face on it.”
“Oh, please open up, Family Feud door, that we may compete against the stars of the hit CBS sitcom Dave’s World!
My mathematics blog had another roundup of comic strips yesterday, so I hope you’ll consider going over and reading them, even if I don’t have any pictures from the comics on hand there. (There’s links for each to Gocomics.com, which I believe is a reliably stable archival source for the strips, which is why I don’t include images.) Since that’s not particularly visual, then, let me give you my thought about a scene from the third episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.
Romulan Guy In The Middle: “Ambassador Spock, may I at last present you with the face I have brought you halfway across the galaxy to punch.”
Spock: “I regard punching this face as a solemn duty and a service to the galaxy.”
Yeah, it’s a quick little thing, but in my defense, I’m tired after writing about another bunch of comic strips that mention mathematical themes, in which I explain how they’re doing things that are perfectly funny if you understand them well enough. Also, hey, I reached 15,000 page views over the past day, which is a nice fairly round number. Hi, gang.
