Friend of the blog Matt just gave this to me. Do I play as Guinan and construct an elaborate hat? As Troi and wear something low-cut and work-inappropriate? Or as Riker so I can wear a fake beard? SO MANY CHOICES

Lonely Among Us - 1.7

Our buddy jurijuri gave us a tip to check out this first season episode, which involves a couple of warring alien life forms that are DECIDEDLY first-season-y, which means: THEY LOOK NUTS. Just mentally prep yourself for that. We start off in the transporter room, where the crew is dressed to the nines, or at least to the sevens:

Reader @secretseasons points out that Michelle Obama’s coat also had some TNG influences, notably the gray grid patterns that are in vogue on the runways of Romulus. True, Michelle’s getup has a much better silhouette than what the Romulans wear, and she’s gone for a nice pleated texture instead of “quilted bodysuit”, but the belt looks like something that wouldn’t get you excommunicated on Romulus, and, frankly, the gloves match Troi’s shade of lip color from that time she got turned into a Romulan. Actually, now that I look at it more closely, Michelle’s new haircut might actually pass muster on the home planet. That’s okay, Michelle, I’ll be conquered by your people any day of the week.
Thanks, @secretseasons!

I’m not saying Dr. Jill Biden is a fan of TNG, but take a look at the coat on Deanna’s almost-mother-in-law from episode 1.11, Haven, and then check out Dr. Biden’s inauguration coat. YOU BE THE JUDGE

Transfiguration - 3.25

Sadly, this is not a crossover episode with Harry Potter, though it does have a lot of the “boys and girls dating” intrigue that you might find in, say, a Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

First of all, Geordi has a crush on a LADY, which means he’s going to make a fool of himself (poor Geordi). This is the lucky girl:

325-01

This week’s challenge: create an elegant cocktail outfit using only the hue of swamp.

Considering that this could have been really awful, this girl is working it out, in a 24th Century Soda Fountain kind of way. It sort of looks like she put a more ruffly skirt over a WWII-issue army uniform for ladies. That double skirt almost looks like it could be a real fashion (Anna? [update from Anna: I believe I would classify it as “a long-ass peplum” and also I would like to have it]); anyway, if I saw this girl walking down the street, I would not say “What is wrong with you,” and I might possibly try and give her a high five. Depending on the street.

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.
