TREK HUMOR

Happy Fun Pundit lists the “Top 10 Things I Hate About Star Trek.” Some are more original than others, but a cute list. My favs:

4. A Star Trek quiz:

Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and ‘Ensign Gomez’ beam down to a planet. Which one isn’t coming back?

2. The Holodeck.

I mean, it’s cool and all. But do you really believe that people would use it to re-create Sherlock Holmes mysteries and old-west saloons? Come on, we all know what the holodeck would be used for. And we also know what the worst job on the Enterprise would be: Having to squeegie the holodeck clean.
