you know you’re a nerd when…


… the USS Enterprise just keeps showing up no matter where you look.  First it’s in a urinal, now it’s a fishing rod controller for the Nintendo Wii.  What’s next?  The Jefferies Tube in a salami?  A Phaser in a beard trimmer?  Is it us or is the whole world actually trying to look like Star Trek?    [special thanks to reader BobaTrek for sending this one in.  Send yours to DarthMojo4u at AOL].  At the risk of straying off topic for a moment, I just ran across this Photoshop image of Obama as a Vulcan.  Am I the last guy on Earth to see this? 

Considering we just wrapped up our XXL Captain Kirk Photoshop contest, I figured it was appropriate to bring the week to a close with this image.  What surprises me the most is the source.  No, it’s not Fark or The Onion  – it’s from The New York Times!   Maybe we have gone mainstream…

Have a great weekend everybody (psssst, click the links).

    I’m checking my grilled cheeses for the face of XXL Kirk. No luck yet.

    That reel / rod is just begging to be turned into a ship! I’m in the ‘everyone wants to be Trek’ camp. Before I read the entry I thought you were up to another Photoshop trick!

    Well, you could make a case for a banana being a Vorlon disruptor, which can disintegrate a target…in a million years…

    I have never seen a Vulcan act so stupidly…….. (enough said)

    Sort of reminds me of a Victory-class destroyer, but without the fins.

    I’m in the ‘everyone wants to be Trek” camp since I just finished watching a British drama on PBS where the police talk with one person who’s confessing to illegal downloading and the cops are thinking kiddie porn and the person is talking about Star Trek episodes.

    I am sorry to post OT, but I didn’t see any other place to put this. I just saw The Plan and I thought the FX work was awesome. I am looking forward to your promised post on this.

    I had one question that a bunch of us nerds were arguing: How many baseships did you guys create for the attack? I could count about 50 (with about 15 orbiting Caprica), but some of my friends say there were more like 100. Either way, it was incredible. Also, did RDM or one of TPTB tell you guys how many baseships were to be in the scene, or were you given latitude to create the armada as you saw fit?

    If you turn our cable remotes upside down, they have a really cool battlestar shape.

    And I imagine (not that I’ve done this, of course) that if you were to *happen* to look at it through a digital camera, and you were to *happen* to press one of the buttons, that the IR transmitters *might* look like engines igniting, maybe.
