Little Red to Collective: Please Send Instructions  
Please help choose my next Little Red Trekathon Adventure!

aj requested BABIES AND/OR KIDS using really large font, so that's kind of the front-runner, but then ljs_lj suggested "Vulcans Behaving Badly" and I really need to know what you think is in most desperate need of taking up my free time. The arguments are thus:

Baaaabies! Pros: cuteness, making aj's day. Cons: potentially a quatrillion qualifying episodes, "Charlie X."
Vulcans Behaving Badly. Pros: basically the greatest episodes ever, the crackiness of the episode is sometimes actual crack. Cons: that time when T'Pol got Vulcan AIDS, Star Trek V.
Klingons! Pros: Gowron, Martok, epicness. Cons: Worf's endless manpain, the time B'Elanna's baby was Klingon Moses.
ROMULAAAAAANS. Pros: because it's Romulans! Cons: how many recap jokes can really be made about shoulderpads?
Alien influence/possession. Pros: in the words of nel_ani: MOTHERFUCKING LOCUTUS, THAT'S WHY. Cons: I can't immediately think of an episode list beyond that! Maybe this belongs in a grab-bag along with body-swapping and oh-crap-he's-really-an-imposter? Needs work!
Time Travel. Pros: that "Time Warp" video was super awesome. Cons: the temporal cold war won't make any sense this time I watch it, either.
Omnipotent Beings. Pros: CRAAAAAACK! Cons: CRAAAAAAACK!

Time Travel! C'mon, then you get "Trials and Tribblations" and Federation bureaucrats who look all stern and disapproving about incidents of temporal mismanagement!

Also, Jadzia in an old-school Starfleet uniform and Worf being confronted with Tribbles!

Doooooooo iiiiiiiiiit!

Also, First Contact totally counts as a wacky time-travel adventure!

(bounces!)

Cardassians would be THE ENTIRE SERIES OF DEEP SPACE NINE although of course they are totally awesome. :) That's why I'm hesitant about Klingons, too. Vulcans are super rare in TNG and DS9, and Romulans are pretty few and far between, so those seem more reasonable.

I feel like I've abused the ticky boxes...
Maybe this belongs in a grab-bag along with body-swapping and oh-crap-he's-really-an-imposter?

*nod nod* This was my thought. Though I can't think of any concrete examples (save of Locutus), it feels like every other episode in every other series is "HANG ON, YOU'RE NOT [insert appropriate name here]!". I'm thinking mirror!verse episodes or oooh, that TOS episode where Kirk was split in two...though, I suppose technically, he was still himself. *ponders*

As for the kids thing, I wasn't gonna go for birth eps, but then if you don't, you'll miss out on the episode where Keiko gives birth and Worf is all "THIS WAS NOT IN THE MANUAL!".

Re: I feel like I've abused the ticky boxes...
YES, there is a lot of that! And in TNG also! Like the one time that aliens replaced Picard and he was all making the moves on Beverly and singing drinking songs with the crew. THAT WAS AWESOME!

EVIL KIRK WAS AMAAAZING. So ridiculous.

Mirrorverse seems like maybe its own thing?? IDK!

I love the follow up in DS9 when Quark is like "Keiko O'Brien's having a baby!" and Worf is like "NOW!? I NEED TO LEAVE GOODBYE." Awesome.

I don't have anything to say, I just have an icon I rarely get to use.

And this one doesn't hurt either.
Little Red: xf - hey monnie!mylittleredgirl on February 8th, 2011 04:44 am (UTC)
She so adopted William and moved to Canada where Doggett was a lumberjack. It happened in my head. And maybe in fanfic. IDK IT HAPPENED.

If you wrote it, it would be the greatest DRR baby!fic the world has ever known.

"I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok" is now playing in my head though.
