About

Charlie (@chozzles) and Anna (@ajlobster) are revisiting Star Trek: The Next Generation. In a big way. And we've noticed that the clothes on that show are AMAZING. And not just 1987 amazing, or 24th century amazing, but BOTH, SIMULTANEOUSLY. We celebrate those fashions here.

Gambit I & II - 7.04/7.05

As you may or may not have noticed, we don’t do these episodes in any particular order. Sometimes we’ll be particularly intrigued by a description on Netflix (or in the old days, surfthechannel), or sometimes someone will give us a hot tip. Our plan is still to do every episode, so if we haven’t done your favorite yet, don’t fret.

That said, we will take your suggestions under advisement if you holler at us. This double episode was suggested very passionately by Lisa (who, if her email is correct, is a cat lady), as well as Sarah on Twitter, and then by Deborah and Britt in person. It’s popular.

Since today (January 8) is David Bowie’s birthday, we thought this would be a good one to do. As Lisa puts it “Over the course of the two episodes there is archaeology, Romulans, pain inducing brain implants, and a ship full of bandits who all appear to be taking their fashion cues from David Bowie’s various incarnations.”

Then she pasted a picture of this guy:

I mean…she ain’t wrong.

Friend of the blog Deborah got this for me for my birthday, which is today. It is my new most-prized possession.

I know this isn’t fashion-related, but I can’t resist the dulcet tones of Patrick Stewart. In bunny ears.

I’m a lamp.


Thanks to friend of the blog Sara (whose birthday it is today) for bringing this to our attention.

The Face of the Enemy - 6.14

This episode starts with Troi waking up in a strange room and a headache.

614-01

That’s what you get for doing shots with Klingon! Oh wait, that’s season 7.

But unless you’ve woken up hungover and found your kidneys missing, you don’t really know what THIS feels like.

614-02

I know, that outfit IS the worst. Nothing like waking up to your own fashion disaster.

Seriously, though, all 20,000 (well, 20,583) of you guys are amazing, if only because you totally validate our need to trash talk TNG fashion. Anna and I are trying to think up fun and exciting ways to thank you for all your wonderful support and feedback, so don’t worry, this will all pay off in the end. Probably.

The Measure of a Man - 2.9

This was one of the episodes shown at last Thursday’s FATHOM EVENT “A Celebration of Season 2”, which - in case you weren’t there - was CRAZY FUN. Everyone laughed at Wesley, the bloopers they showed were so funny I cried real tears, and one of my friends tried to get a hot dog but ended up with hot dog sliders, which are apparently a real thing. 

The notable thing about this episode in this format was that it had EXTRA MINUTES that weren’t aired originally, but were restored along with the rest of it for the Season Two Blu-ray release. I think it’s fair to say that the cuts they made were smart, but it was cool to see the extra scenes.

The other thing about this episode is that it is incredibly boring from a fashion perspective. It’s all uniforms plus Guinan. Not a lot going on. But we will see what we can find. I mean, this isn’t a terrible way to begin:

Remember that episode with the heidy deidy Irish stereotype society? That gets transported onboard the Enterprise, along with their hay? And there is a fiery Irish lass that Riker bones? Of course you do. And remember that BANANAS crop top cable-knit sweater? Well, we have NEW INFORMATION regarding it, in the form of an email from the dude who DESIGNED IT:
Have just stumbled across your review of Up the long ladder below.
Am not a Star Trek fan but am the designer of the cable knit sweater you’ve dissected in some depth. FYI a bit of background, it was produced some 25 years ago, the company was called Memento and was it handknitted in the South of England and sold in substantial numbers as part of a range through a Los Angeles boutique called Comme des Fous. The store sold the best of British designers and was far removed from the hash pipe and llama wool socks emporium you envisage. It was a destination stop for LA stylists and consequently our knitwear was picked up by Madonna, Cher, Belinda Carlisle and countless others. Stuff also appeared on Dallas, but the Irish thing on Star trek was the weirdest and most inspired. 
Most amused by your comments, a quarter of a century down the line I’d nearly forgotten about this but for an unexpected conversation at work that got me delving on Google.
WHAT!!! I am genuinely relieved to find out that some costume person didn’t have to make that from scratch. Now I’m off to see if I can find any photos of Cher wearing one. Thank you, sir, for sharing this information with us, and also for writing a sentence as charming as “The store sold the best of British designers and was far removed from the hash pipe and llama wool socks emporium you envisage.”

A Celebration of Season 2 - TNG on the BIG SCREEN

Don’t forget! TNG at the movie theater this Thursday, 11/29 at 7pm! I (Anna) will be attending in a jumpsuit, so if you’re in NYC, please say hi. Charlie can’t go because he lives in the wilderness (but he can go to Waffle House whenever he wants, so you win some you etc).

Data's Traditional Family Thanksgiving

This is a cute little fanfic about Thanksgiving with the TNG crew, but I have a question: why would the Enterprise even HAVE a galley?

To our American readers, enjoy the holiday, and to everyone else, enjoy Thursday!
