All Aboard!

Welcome bloggie friends to gorgeous Captain Ellie's Star Trek blogfest!

Here are my five most favouritist things about all things Star Trek - and mainly from the 1960's original series.

1) Tribbles – what's not to like? They purr, are furry and make most humanoids smile!

Giant Tribble!

2) Lt Uhura’s sexy red uniform – hubba, hubba!



3) Dilithium Crystals – the words just roll off my tongue like liquid chocolate!

funny pictures - If Animals Played Star Trek #21


4) Seatbelts. Or Lack Of. Y'all must have seen the episodes where the crew on deck are attacked and they get flung about and out of their seats for lack of anything to strap them into their seats.

5) “Boldly going forward cos we can’t find reverse” lyrics from The Firm’s homage to the series and their classic catchphrases.



The end! Charlie and I consider ourselves confined to quarters for the rest of the journey!

Ah yes, and it took a Canadian, William Shatner aka Captain Kirk, to sort out the universe, eh :)

I loved listening to that song on the old Dr. Demento show on Sunday nights. Did you get Dr. Demento on your side of the Pond? I'm going to link back to this on my site. A true classic!

Huntress said...

Tribbles are the universe's number one pet I believe.
Great post.

Lynda R Young said...

Tribbles are my absolute favourite :)

Roy said...

I do like this. Yes I do. But I'm confined to the lower deck machine shop and can't get to the lounge. I need help!

Just sayin .....

Love the Tribble. Nice and plump that one.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That's a big Tribble.
And Klingons on the starboard bow is never good...

Mr Puddy said...

joanne fox said...

That Tribbles episode was always my favourite! And yes, how funny when the crew all used to get flung around. Those old episodes were great.

Madeleine said...

*Love* your choices! Excellent.
Star Trekkin is on mine too ;O)

dArtagnan Rumblepurr/Diego Hamlet Moonfur said...

I think Diego is part tribble...

Hutch said...

Hannah and Lucy said...

Had totally forgotten the Star Trek Song so thoroughly enjoyed it but Hannah and Lucy will probably hate you later when it's still going round my head when I get in bed tonight and I start singing to them!
Lun Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Creepy Query Girl said...

bwahaha! I never thought about the no seatbelt thing! lol. My dad was a total trekkie so I grew up with the old episodes and the new ones. Probably the only show I didn't complain about watching as a kid.

Donna K. Weaver said...

Oh, Kitty, that kitty pic is the best! rofl

Marg said...

Charlie we really like your sexy outfit. It looks like you are giving it a look. Great pictures. Hope you have a super week. Take care.

LTM said...

omg! My trekkie husband would be SO into this fest... I've always been aware of ST, but never a huge fan. I like calling it Star Track b/c it irritates hubs. Also Princess Aurora instead of Lt. Uhura... But the BEST by far is the disco dancing they do when the ship hits turbulence.

Priceless... :D <3

Michael Offutt said...

Awesome star trek kitties. Definitely gotta follow you as I love lolcats.

Milo James Fowler said...

Gotta love those tribbles. =]

Isis Rushdan said...

Theresa Milstein said...

Ah, the dilithium crystals.

All that time in the future and we've decided to abandon the safety of seat belts? I guess they knew what they were doing.

No picture of you in the costume? ; )

Ellie Garratt said...

OMG. You have a uniform! Yay!

I knew you'd like Tribbles too. Haha.

Thank you for taking part. I can't believe I finally tempted you into doing a blogfest! Now report to your duty station!

Rene said...

Oh, I love that giant tribble LOL cat! DH loves Star Trek and we have some of the fuzzy tribbles they sold years ago.

Bossy Betty said...

I am SO with you on the Tribbles thing!

Hart Johnson said...

teehee--oh, very fun set of stuff. I didn't know about this one, and am not sure I would have done it, as my memory is bad, but I did love the show. great choices!

Waesome. We live life at warp speed!

Patsy said...

Tribbles! I'd almost forgotten about them.

My favourite was spotting someone new on an away mission. You knew they'd die - but the fun was in guessing how.

M Pax said...

I love that song about Star Trek. Tribbles are fabulous. I have one hovering at my feet right now, hoping I want to play the ribbon game again.

Margo Berendsen said...

Oh, I love your funny take on this blogfest! I never thought about but dilithium crystals are delicious to say! I love how Charlie (and other kitties) got included.

Clarissa Draper said...

What a awesome video. I'm not going to have that song out of my head for lightyears! And seriously, that's a uniform? Cool.

Elizabeth Mueller said...

Jennifer! You should have posed in that outfit! I do love those gogo boots! I have some, too! *sigh*

Very cute! You can't wrong with a Star Trek blogfest. Just too much fun!

Simon Kewin said...

Most amusing post! And it looks like you actually own a Uhura costume. Very cool!

Ella said...

I love your photos and picks! Yes, it does roll off the tongue like chocolate! Warp speed works for me, too ;D
Yes, thanks for seconding my Khan pick, lol
I love your photos...your tribble is the cutest so far :D

Jemi Fraser said...

Love it! Tribbles are the best and I love the dilithium crystal pic!!

Mark Murata said...

Do you remember that Dr. McCoy discovered the tribbles were born pregnant? As David Gerrold, the writer, said, that saved them from having the tribbles doing a certain activity all over Kirk's ship.

I loved your #5. That was adorable, funny and creative.

James Garcia Jr said...

Ha! Very clever. We have one cat in our home. I never thought of him as a Tribble before. I'm sure I will see it in him now. Lol!

Who doesn't love a dilithium crystal or three? And the star trekking video was a great blast from the past, thanks for warping over and sharing it with our Federation!
