There are of course no video games in the future, only simple games with the computer, and the holodeck. Quite why Strategema requires milking machines to be attached to your fingers we may never know. Perhaps Kolrami just had more finger-milk. Ewww.

Foolish Romulans. You build such big ships with big empty space in the middle, just so it looks large.
Yes, I had all week and this was all that came into my head.
Oh dear, barrel-scraping commences, or maybe it’s another brush with that dreaded narrative thing. I guess we’ll find out in future comics a few Centons from now. When I figure out what the frak that means.
That’s right Battlestar Noobies, Pyramid is a card game, not space-lacrosse – that’s Triad. And Starbuck is a very male role-model for us all. Not only an excellent Viper pilot and Colonial Warrior, but eventually he even made it big with his own chain of coffee shops. One day I will see him in there, I just know it.
Back when Voyager was still running we used to think the last episode should have Commander Data walk onto the bridge and say “Oh, did I leave this running? Computer, end program.”
They didn’t do that, but of course when Enterprise ended they did almost EXACTLY this. Okay, so it was Commander Riker instead of Data, but they did use our idea. The filthy idea thieves. Awesome.
I’ll tell the truth, I love Voyager. It’s as if someone took the silliness of original Star Trek and brought it right up to date. I even like the Warp 10 episode, Threshold, but possibly because its cheesy and annoys some of my friends. Rest assured, sooner or later I will do a comic set in Voyager’s shuttlecraft factory.
We are still here, back from the dead like a Neelix full of Seven’s nanoprobes.
The more observant of you may have noticed that I’ve made a vague commitment to update the comic twice a week from now on. I reckon that’s about the best balance I can manage between new material and my sanity, without injecting too much in the way of filler. So from now on, Evil Picard will help you get through Mondays and celibrate Fridays. There may from time to time be other random updates though when I feel like doing something random, so keep your long range sensors peeled.
I’ve been watching quite a bit of Season One of The Next Generation lately (looting for ideas I suppose). . . I was almost coming to the conclusion that season one should be entirely stricken from the record – it does contain a lot of painful cliche and ill-thought-out stories. On the other hand though, every season has its golden moments, and early TNG is no exception. I love the “mean” Ferrengi, when they were still considered a credible enemy, and the outfits on the Edo girls in “Justice” . . . although to be fair I think the whole visit to that particular planet was probably a violation of the prime directive. Perhaps they were swayed by the local tourist brochure.
No, for too long have I considered that TNG begins proper with The Best of Both Worlds. Even watching Encounter at Farpoint reminded me how awesome Picard is. He’s just more awesome when he stops being French. I mean seriously, how many episodes was it before they swept that one under the carpet. Amen.
See you on Monday folks.
