# 1 The little Oberth that could
04-16-2011, 12:40 PM
Today I noticed an Oberth science vessel who had become ensnared by an asteroid.

It seems her captain felt the need to move the asteroid 6 meters to the left, and the proper method of doing so involved erasing the Oberth's face.

After careful deliberation between myself and my bridge officers, we concluded he was nuckng futs. Then after congratulating ourselves on our conclusion, we also concluded that the Oberth needed to roam free.

Not knowing how to accomplish this goal, we sat down to some difficult calculations. Suddenly my Klingon tactical officer, fed up with the bickering that goes on in the ready-room, lept to his feet, and ran for the bridge shouting; "Why don't we just RAM THEM!". We all waited with mounting anticipation as the engines revved and the deckplates trembled amidst klingon cursing and fist pounding.

Just as our small escort vessel was about to sake itself to pieces, the tiny science vessel popped free of her stony prison.

Free she sailed on the vacuum of space, turning majestic circles in way of thanks for her freedom.

It was a beautiful sight, and again, myself and my bridge officers congatulated ourselves and my tactical officer on a job well done. Sadly, during our celebration, our majestic little oberth turned her last circle and planted her face firmly in the bosom of the very same asteroid.

Let this be a lesson, you can lead an Oberth to space, but you can't keep her nose out of the dirt for long.

They should do that. The devs just need to have random asteroids that have Oberths sticking out of them.

Tactical Officer: "Captain, Klingon's are still on us!"
Captain: "Take us into that asteroid, we got phase cloak!"
Helm: "Captain, we can't..."
Captain: "I know, Ensign, the treaty. But we have no choice!"
Helm: "No, I mean we literally can't..."
Captain: "I'll note your objection in my log, now GO!"
Helm: "WE DON'T HAVE A..."

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

Two days later...

I originally posted this in the "Oberth spotted" thread, but it kind of goes well with the spirit of this thread...

"I'm honored to have been named the captain of such a fine ship. I mean...sure, its named for an unfortunate astronaut who was killed in a huge ball of fire on a launchpad 200 years ago but that doesn't mean this ship will die in a huge ball of fire, right? Come on. The odds on that would be astronomical. Not to mention how ironically tacky it would be to name a ship after Gus Grissom and then have it explode in a huge fireball. That would just be horribly embarrassing. Almost as embarrassing as being one-shotted by a cross-eyed Klingon weapons officer...."

LOL!!!!!

The guy was a prophet without knowing it, because isn't that exactly what happened to the Grissom in The Search for Spock?

I thought it was Kang who fired the shot... Though I have to say, Christopher Lloyd was perhaps THE worst choice for a klingon ever. Lets give the role to an actor who specialized in spazzing out. >_>

Don't forget about John Larroquette as a Klingon in that movie as well...
