Few Star Trek characters can match Mr. Spock's fame. And when it comes to logic, no one can outmatch him. But his love for pussy cats defy logic, doesn't it?
For the old-timers, Canadian actor William Shatner will always be Captain James T. Kirk. But the new generation of Trekkies seems to be doting on Chris Pine. The orignal Captain Kirk is not too impressed. Can't really blame him, can we?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard seems to be taking his fitness to seriously these days. But in the deepest corners of the space, he is bound to be running short of the right equipment needed to tone his physique. But he is not a quitter. Watch how he uses the captain's log as a barbell!
Vulcans are not known to be emotional beings. But, Mr. Spock is no ordinary Vulcan. He is half-human after all! It can be a strength as well as a weakness depending on how one sees it. But, Spock understands it well that it takes a lot more than just logic to become a true hero.
It is well documented that Star Trek has influenced various technological inventions such as the mobile phone. It may very well be true that the first selfie was actually taken on the sets of Star Trek.
You are being watched, mate! Yes, this man can actually see through your clothes. Later on, don't complain that I didn't warn you right away.
Some people are just looking for excuses to inebriate themselves. Our friend Scotty here feels that he has the license to thrill himself by drinking Scotch. But in the far reaches of the space one can get lonely. So, I think, we can give him the benefit of the doubt!
Mr. Spock, please mind your tongue! If even you start calling names what will become of the more emotional races? Please try to be more logical than mere mortals!

Don't be so cold, mister! The young girl has got feelings for you. She wants to seduce you. You would be a darn fool if you try to stop her.
In the Star Trek pantheon, there are few villains as vile as Khan Noonien Singh. When you really hate someone, it is best to scream his name so loud that it echoes in space, endlessly. You will hear the echoes till the end of time.
The redshirts can be really gullible. The men who command them don't seem to value their lives much. So, they die in large numbers. They are Star Trek equivalent of light infantry.
For a Frenchman, Jean-Luc Picard is a bit too English. His love for tea would humble even the English. But he is the captain of the ship, after all! He can drink as much tea as he like.
You are witnessing a historic moment, Trekkies! This is how the pizza tray came into being. Contrary to the popular belief, it was the tray that came first and the pizza followed.
That's what happens when you are so drunk. The time keeps flying away. It isn't necessarily a bad thing when you are trying to kill time in the far reaches of the space.
As Master Yoda would have said it: "Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering." I suggest you enroll for an anger management course right away.
Mr. Spock is in a mood to party. Yes, even he likes to have fun every now and then. Hope, everybody has a logical time!
Welcome to the new generation of Star Trek. Am I too hot for you, mister? Wait till I take off my undies. I don't think you will be able to handle my sex appeal. You are already getting breathless. I suggest you better put on your oxygen mask.
