The Final Frontier
Make It So
How many of us have sat around the television during the opening sequence of Star Trek: The Next Generation, loudly singing “DUN, DUN DUN DUN, DUN DUN DUN” along with that famous brass-heavy intro? We may have all committed that now-sacred opening speech to memory, but we could’ve never done it as adorably as this 4-year-old boy.
Today, The Daily Dot published the story behind one of our favorite Twitter users, @tng_s8, a parody account that purports to publish plotlines from the unaired season 8 of Star Trek: The Next Generation. @tng_s8 is run by a 30-year-old Los Angeles-based aspiring comedy writer who asked that the Daily Dot not use his name, lest the pureness of this Twitter stream be tainted by his Hollywood dreams.
The account undoubtedly appeals to the more rabid TNG fans among us, but even if your knowledge of the show extends simply to “That one guy has a beard,” you’ll probably find some of the tweets pretty hilarious. Below, we’ve collected our favorites.
