Greetings, web mortals. Evil Picard returns, with no promises as to future updates or being funny. Some great length of time ago I ran out of steam and didn’t feel like updating – and once I’d stopped it was so easy not to start again. From now on there may at some point be comics if I think of anything, but schedules be damned.

I almost made the Ferrengi moan about Paypal or something else auction related, but since they’re the only ones in the galaxy still using money it felt a bit pointless. Everyone else seems to trade in technology and access to strategic stuff. . .which I guess is the only thing left that makes sense once you give up on gold-pressed latinum.
I’m thinking about changing the comic a little, or rather the update schedule. I’m concerned that trying to do too many strips is having a negative impact on quality, so I may cut back to once a week in the near future. I don’t like to cut back, but sometimes it feels like I’m doing poor quality jokes to meet a deadline, and nobody wants that.
Don’t worry, I can’t keep up this Borg lark too long. I’ll bet Riker is off prepping some kind of deadly Deflector-Dish weapon that is sure to fend the Borg off and get things back to normal.
I guess it had to happen sooner or later . . . I can just hear Q saying it now, “If the Continuum has told you once they’ve told you a thousand times – Don’t antagonize the Borg!”
Not sure how I’m going to get out of this one. What with resistance being futile and all.
You can tell that when the original series first aired that colour TV was a new thing. . . Everything is just so darned colourful!
Everyone is really mean about Spock’s Brain and says it’s a terrible episode. In many respects it does embody some of the cheesiest and most ridiculous aspects of old Star Trek. . . I can’t really argue there. It is what it is, and I still love it.
Power is corrupting once again I see. Curse that pesky Prime Directive.
Also, watching this episode again I’m fairly sure that the Mintakans live on the same planet where Kirk fought the Gorn. Either that all all planets look alike. . . I suppose that was always true in Dr Who.
Ahh yes, Devil’s Due, a properly cheesy old-school style Trek episode. How many original series episodes had lame “gods” with bags of tricks? The thing with Ardra was that she was a real pain in the ass, and as good as her tricks were, I doubt she could’ve stopped someone from phasering her in the back.
Besides, once you claim to the world that you are in fact the Devil, I think you give up any normal rights not to be shot at. I’m somewhat reminded of an episode of Buffy, with some ancient demon that was immune to conventional weapons. . . but that didn’t extend to a bazooka.
