The campiest moment in any Star Trek episode, ever.
- Reanimated corpse of grandma? ✔️
- Possessed by an alien sex ghost? ✔️
- Velvet-lined Dracula-ass coffin from Spirit Halloween? ✔️
- Attacking a robot and the guy from Reading Rainbow? ✔️
- With that one 90s lightning effect? ✔️
@erinbee oh gawd THAT episode
@erinbee "you know what Star Trek: The Next Generation needs? an Anne Rice pastiche, only with SCIENCE"
@chara "It's like V.C. Andrews, but set in a LARP of 19th century Scotland."
@erinbee I was vaguely reminded of the "New Caledonian" colony that pops up in "Mote in God's Eye" (not that great a book as I recall)
there's some engineer fellow (of course it would be an engineer) speaking in a thick affected Scottish caricature until some insult or other prompts him to shout a line in vernacular English
@erinbee I had almost successfully forgotten that episode, and now I have to start all over again. *Grumbles all the way to the brain bleach cupboard*
@erinbee to have been a fly during that table read
@erinbee I remember seeing this when I did my watch through of TNG a few years ago and thinking, "I can believe that this was an TNG episodes, I can't believe it was in SEASON SEVEN."
@cdmnky That may be the best Trek sex scene 🧐
@revolverocelot Ok, I lost it at "13 seconds in and Picard instantly wants out of this" and could not stop giggling through the rest
@erinbee That fuckin Picard “MMMM!”
I couldn't believe that there are *two* TNG episodes of "crew-member is totally cool with being sexually violated by a mysterious alien."
@xinjinmeng It really makes you think about 1. How overused "violated by a spirit" is in 80s and 90s TV/film and 2. Why did the writers decide that was a trope they needed to visit multiple times?
