Give me Star Trek (Cygnus version)

Six months... probably the longest the blog has gone without an update.  I really want to be posting here most often, but life is busy.

A week or two ago, I saw an interesting Star Trek related meme by someone named Skye Gray (but it's hard to pin down its true origin).  I thought it really got to the hopeful heart of the franchise.  However, Discovery wasn't represented -- meaning it was probably made prior to 2017 -- and there were a few pieces of the puzzle that I didn't quite think were optimized.  Thus, I made my own version...

Trek fans may find aspects to complain about (Pine and not Shatner? Broccoli for Courage?) but I stand by my choices.  Share if you like, and live long & prosper.


  1. Love it.

    Give me a father figure = Wesley

    1. Ah, yes, Commodore Bob Wesley, from that episode with the M-5 computer. A very paternal figure indeed.

      (Gosh, I can't for the life of me think of any other character with that name who might be worthy of inclusion on a board like this...)

    2. Alright, alright... I'll try another one.

      Give me Picard: Lwaxana Troi

    3. Ooooohhhhhh.... I actually didn't get your original joke! Wesley (and Lwaxana) are the ones expressing these desires. Der. Sorry. I guess that's the case for most of the above parts of the meme, but I got wrapped up in the idea that it's the fans expressing these desires, and the characters are embodying them.
