Google: TOS

We focus on TNG around here, of course, but we have to give props for the original series. Happy Anniversary to the series that started it all! And check out the Google Doodle today! (Thank you to friends of the blog Laurie and Lauren for the heads up.)

Okay, so remember the time when friend of the blog Stephanie sent me this zine for my birthday/Christmas? Well, there are MORE. And Zach, currently the holder of the title of Best Fashion It So Fan in Portland, sent them ALL to us. I want to savor them, but also I want to read them all immediately. (Also included in the package: Miami, You’ve Got Style, cataloging the fashions of The Golden Girls. All those references finally paid off.)
Many thanks to Zach! We’ll have a new real post for you soon! In the meantime, regale us with Beverly Crusher moments and enter our giveaway!

Happy Labor Day to our American readers and Happy Monday to everyone else! To celebrate, Charlie and I are going to send two readers a valueless prize! Friend of the blog Sara sent me three figurines a while back and I was at a loss as to what to do with them. Then I realized: surely one of you will get more enjoyment out of them. I’m keeping the Deanna Troi one, but someone is getting a Beverly Picard one, and someone else is getting an Intendant Kira one. 

To enter, just REBLOG this post and tell us your most memorable Beverly Crusher moment. This can be a favorite, least favorite, or just something that ginger minx did once that stuck with you. For me, it’s the scene in The Price where Bev and Deanna are doing space jazzercise and execute the Slammin’ Baskets move. And, of course, the entirety of the episode Sub Rosa.

Reblog by 11:59pm EST on Sunday, September 9 and we’ll send you a present!

Friend of the blog Ana sent us a link to this lovely sweatshirt from TAVIK, which is described on the SWELL website thusly:

Hey there’s no if’s, and’s or but’s about it this fleece is gonna make you an instant lady killer. Just make sure that you’re prepared for this bombardment from the female gender

I would understand this copy if it was, say, a sharp tweed blazer or a buttery leather jacket. But sweatshirts don’t kill ladies. Come on. If you have this sweatshirt and have gotten bombarded by the female gender, please let us know.

Number 9 is Fashion-Related.

…but I’m guessing that if you’re following us you already knew that one. We certainly did. I have brought it up on MULTIPLE dates. Someday someone will think it’s a really interesting bit of trivia. Someday.

Happy birthday to both Gene Roddenberry, the man without whom we would have none of this, and Jonathan Frakes, who appears briefly in this clip from an interview shortly before TNG began airing. Also appearing in this clip: SKANTS.

Elementary, Dear Data - 2.3

There are a handful of categories into which most episodes of TNG can be grouped. There are the Somebody New On Board types, where someone comes on the ship for [reasons] and shenanigans ensue. There are the This Planet Be Crazy episodes, where the crew goes to a planet for [reasons] and shenanigans ensue. There are the Picard Must Face It Alone episodes, and the Q Acts Like a Dick episodes, and and a few other categories that can be mixed and matched to form the delicious cocktail that is TNG.

And then there are the holodeck episodes.

I know they’re dumb. But people can like dumb things. Look how much everyone loves Ryan Lochte. I like Barclay, and I like Picard in a fedora and I even like Data in the Wild West even though that episode was so, so stupid, because when else are we going to get to see Brent Spiner dressed as a saloon wench?

But this episode actually addresses some interesting philosophical points about the artificial intelligence that the holodeck can create (also: YOUR COMPUTER IS REALLY POWERFUL, GUYS). As usual, if you want good analysis and plot details, check out the AV Club review. We’re here to talk about clothes. And hair!

I’m sorry. You’re probably burnt out on this song, what with the swimmers and the baseball players and the cookie monsters and The Roots and whatnot. But it’s not like I could see this and not post it. I am particularly pleased to see that PEEK makes an appearance at 36 seconds.

Big ups to @costanoble for the tip.

Friend of the blog Jen found this treasure while searching for “something else entirely.” Bless you, Internet. Blinternet.I sort of wish the ladies here were modeled after Troi and Crusher (with varying hairstyles for each season) instead of a rando Bajoran and Vulcan lady*, and it would be nice to have just the go-go boots to go with the original series dress, but I do like the inclusion of a variety of outfits from different series, and the Bajoran details are cute. Nice work, paper doll lady!I did a little poking around, and ended up on the website of Tom Tierney, who is, like, THE DUDE for paper dolls. If you were a kid who liked paper dolls (which I was, because FASHION), you probably had his books. He apparently drew some Star Trek ones, but I could only find this image of the cover on his website.
*Update: boylemedia has alerted us that the ladies here are probably Kira Nerys and T’Pol, though the lady who drew them didn’t identify them as such.
