#31 – The spirit is willing, but the flesh is kind of a lazy jerk

12 Comments on #31 – The spirit is willing, but the flesh is kind of a lazy jerk

Jesus, Picard, you’re being lazy in a fictive context. That’s some serious labor avoidance. I’ve always wondered if a little bit of the script for the Sisko/monks/Opaka stuff in the pilot ended up on the cutting room floor somewhere, because it really is a weird pair of scenes in the show as it aired: 1. […]

21 Comments on #35 – Women do a lot of things, Wes.

Hey, it’s been a while since we had the whole cast in one strip! Everybody but Worf, of course; he’s practicing some Klingon opera in his room, being extra loud because he secretly hopes someone will notice and check in on him because he’s kind of upset that everybody’s playing the game and too busy […]

My, but I’m having a busy non-Larp Trek morning! So this is a bit later going up than I’d like, and I have no miniature essay on the nature of TNG or DS9 or roleplay at the moment. Please choose a probing question about the fundamental nature of one of these vis-a-vis ludic theory or […]

man what is even going on in this game i don’t even– Apropos of nothing, I’ve been watching Enterprise the last couple months, a few episodes a week with my wife, as a sort of grudging capstone to our having gone through TNG and DS9 and Voyager in the last two or three years. And […]

22 Comments on #44 – She Quarks Hard For The Money

Here’s the big ol’ volleyball-game-winning spike that Troi bumped and set in the last two strips, starting with that apparent non-sequitur redirect to Quark’s place. Damn indeed; daaaaaaaamn, girl. Never forget: this is a woman who has access to, and actively maintains, extensive psychological profiles for all of these people. So, yes: it’s kind of […]

28 Comments on #49 – In Soviet wormhole, orb scans YOU!

Riker really doesn’t like those orbs, let me tell you. Also, did I use the “leave of your senses” line for Picard already? I’m a little worried that he’s repeating himself. But maybe Bev is sort of used to that; I appreciate that she’s just plowing along in plucky fashion here even if Jean-Luc is […]

12 Comments on #50 – What’s a pirate’s favorite cast member to kill off in the first season?

Man, how different would the pilot have been if Sisko could have just made a couple of saving throws? The Prophets are all like “the humans are non-linear” and then Picard is all BAM, NATURAL TWENTY and then the Prophets are like “oh, cool, we get it, wormhole friends forever”, show over. And yes, I […]

Bev might just be on to something with that character sketch, is what I’m thinking. And a quick hello to the pile of people from reddit who appear to have noticed or re-noticed Larp Trek this morning. You are here! No strip-specific thoughts at the moment, but I would like to say a little something […]

8 Comments on #52 – TIIIII-iiiii-ii-iiime / is a fundamentally alien concept / yes it is

Obviously it’d have huge implications for the narrative of Deep Space Nine as an ongoing series, but with if Riker was basically right? I mean we know that (spoiler alert) the wormhole aliens don’t ultimately murder Sisko and every other human in the vicinity or anything like that, but what if instead of Sisko (oh […]
