I bet people have had funny scenes play out in their minds when it comes to Star Trek... I've had quite a few. Then again when work gets boring all sorts of things show up (because I think my mind has an overactive imagination thing built in or something)... Such as this...
I guess I'm being neurotic on this one (if the trait in The Sims 3 is true). After watching both the Wrath of Khan and Star Trek: Into the Darkness, then going to work and being bored...
I had this weird scene play out in my head while trying to stay awake at work.
Khan, in the USS Reliant is about to take down Kirk when some ensign working in the Enterprise transporter room accidentally beams a tribble aboard the Reliant. However, instead of grabbing the poor creature and crushing it into oblivion, Khan and his people suddenly move away from it, with a LOT of FEAR.
The creature coos, wanting to be petted, and starts to roll towards Khan. His bridge crew immediately exits the bridge via the turbolift. However, thanks to a malfunction (and the fact that it is full) Khan is unable to get in with them and the doors refuse to open.
The bridge crew of the Enterprise is watching the whole scene. Kirk is surprised at Khan's fear of such a cute little creature, Spock is perplexed, and the rest of the crew are completely confused and confounded at the turn of events.
The tribble is a few feet away from Khan, still cooing and wanting affection, but Khan is keeping his distance. Finally he pleads with Kirk to beam the horrible creature off the bridge, and in exchange he'll disable his shields and weaponry and surrender immediately...
Khan makes good on his word and drops his ships shields. Kirk beams aboard with a security party, picks up the tribble and pets it, further horrifying Khan. The Reliant and Khans people are secured, its original crew rescued, and the Genesis device is set off on Ceti Alpha VI, creating a stable new planet for Kirk to dump a traumatized Khan and his people on.
Okay.... next time I go to work I'm sneaking a portable music player with me. Boredom at work is a very dangerous thing... x_X
Well, I was once answering a post of doing a mini fiction on how to stop a warp core breech aboard the USS Kittyprize (James T Cats ship) His chief Engineer Montgomery the Scottish-Fold used a warp cork to plug it up and contain it :3
I also brought up in another thread what it would be like if James T Cat had fought that slow moving Gorn that Kirk did, I think it would have looked like Benny Hill hitting the heavy bag in that sketch --> http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=6f3_1327304704
Plus I have imagined what trek would be like using cats that walk upright and wore star fleet shirts instead of the actual crew, the cats would communicate through out the show like this.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W15iyt9H2CA
But I also thing about how much more of a laugh I would get from the game if i could use a cat that walked up right, with a meowing racial ability, since the Devs get to (fully) customise thier toons look, if I ever became a Cryptic employee that would be my first goal! XD
It is kind of hard to top the "A Teddy Bear?!!" sequence in Journey to Babel. McCoy's reaction is soooo impossible to resist laughing at.
I would find it funny if Scotty out of sheer curiosity tried to find the spot on the ship with perfect resonance for his bagpipes, basically turning the whole flying can into a sounding board. Of course, he's forgetting that not everyone loves the pipes...
