Twitter Thread: Quarantine Personalities as Star Trek Characters

Dr. Tanya Harrison laid out how a lot of us are dealing with self-isolation but in terms of Star Trek: The Next Generation characters. Sadly, more than a few of us are Geordis. For some other Star Trek stuff, here's a discussion of why no one on the Enterprise has pockets, and here are Tumblr's questions about gay Klingons.

We get a truly comprehensive, impressive rant from Conan O'Brien's Associate Producer, Jordan Schlansky, on why Star Wars is better than Star Trek. His brain was clearly up for the challenge. Apparently the rant was supposed to end much sooner, but Conan and his team didn't cut him off. Thank goodness.

Tumblr Thread: Why No One on The USS Enterprise Has Pockets

Leave it to Tumblr to ask incredibly specific questions about the world of Star Trek and then rationalize the living hell out of them. It's kind like the time Tumblr had questions about gay Klingons. Tumblr asks interesting questions that make for good sci fi, like this thread about an alien invasion fought off by wildlife.

Tumblr thread on why no one in Star Trek has pockets | jimkerk least realistic thing about star trek is starfleet uniforms don't have pockets and nobody complains about crisisoninfintefandoms My instinct is agree with this, but like really think about No money, no credit cards, identification is all vocal/ fingerprints/retinal, so no wallet. Again, doors are voice activated, or just unlocked by entering code. No keys.

Tumblr gets itself into some interesting rabbit holes regarding the mating habits of fictional creatures, like this Tumblr thread that asks the hard questions about centaurs. Tumblr never runs out of sci-fi concepts and questions, which result in some pretty creative threads like this one about how humans are durable space orcs.

Classic Sci-fi Tumblr Thread on How Humans are Team “Hold My Beer”

Being the center of attention in a lot of fantasy and sci-fi, human beings tend to enjoy a certain "je ne sais quoi" quality about them that lets them get away with amazing shit. In a discussion of humans in the Star Trek Universe specifically, this Tumblr thread went hard in the paint on what makes humans amazing and entertaining in that particular universe. It's a fun read and kinda makes you feel good to be human. In a similar vein of "humans are awesome," here's another thread on how humans are basically Space Orcs.

Tumblr thread about humans in sci fi and Star Trek are bold and insane people.

Dude's Casual Photoshop Request to Friend Ends Up Being Pure Star-Trek Themed Brilliance

God I loved this one. Guy reaches out to his photoshop-adept broheme with the hopes of getting his Star Trek meets Cat on a plate wishes granted, and damn does his buddy deliver. The only other piece of information I found myself wanting from this epic tale, was why he needed the plate to begin with. There was an overriding sense of urgency; so, maybe if we're lucky, an update from the OP on that. Otherwise, big ups to the photoshop master in this scenario.
