People have been having a good time making character-mapping arguments in this thread from yesterday, so I almost hate to collapse the waveform a bit more already, but here we are. Riker-as-Bashir doesn’t really speak much to Will’s imagination, but it seems like a pretty inhabitable character for him. I prefer to think that Riker […]

I realize that Worf being who he is in Next Generation — a Klingon warrior by blood but naturalized significantly into human cultural and military structure via his adoptive parents and his Starfleet career — is part of what makes him an interesting character, but do you ever get the feeling that maybe he got […]

I think a lot about who the audience for LARP Trek is — I’d like to think it works pretty well for both my fellow Trek/Next Gen/Deep Space Nine nerdballs and for the more casual reader who doesn’t really know much about Star Trek other than that “it’s not the one with the lightsabers” but […]

Easing into the actually-commencing-with-the-roleplaying phase of this whole thing (and it only took twenty strips to get there! When that’s the core premise! Concision, that’s what I’m into…) and I think it’s inevitable that some of these next strips will be RPG basics disguised as Star Trek jokes more than they’re Star Trek jokes disguised […]

I would pay one billion internet dollars to see Patrick Stewart perform this scene in reality. Someone have his actual people call my imaginary people, we can have my fake internet accountant take care of all the details. But, yes, huh. This kind of got off the leash and I just followed it where it […]

Thirty strips! It’s a round number! It’s not a very big number, but at the same time it’s a pretty big number for what started as a pretty one-shot joke. I hope you’re enjoying it; I sure am! And I think these crazy Enterprise kids have finally thrown caution to the wind and just plain […]

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 […]

Man, Geordi is just so totally stoked about dropping this big pile of quest exposition that I’m kind of infected with his enthusiasm. I’m excited about how excited a fan-made rendition of a fictional character giving a made-up speech as an NPC is, but I’m the fan who made it. I don’t even know how […]

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 […]

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 […]
