Me: “So, if Star Trek fans are called Trekkies, what are Star Wars fans called?”

Wife: “Literally everyone?”

Star Trek Into Synchronisation

(We have a young kitten that likes to climb up onto the headboard of my parents’ bed and walk along it in order to see what we’re doing. Mom is constantly telling her to get down. This happens one night while a recent Star Trek movie is playing on TV.)

Mom: *talking to kitten sitting on headboard behind her head without looking* “Get down.”

Scotty: *on TV* “Get down.”

(The picture cuts to his pet-like companion crouched on top of some equipment.)

Me: *starts laughing while my mom gives me a look* “You’re in sync with the TV!”

About To Start A Star Trek War, Part 2

| Friendly | November 18, 2015

(My buddy and I buy tickets to go to Comic-Con. I am new to the whole ordeal and whatnot so I am excited to go. At the convention we start talking to these bunch of guys who are dressed up as ‘Star War,’ and ‘Star Trek’ characters. They seem really into it.)

Friend: “That’s really cool. So, you guys are going around as a whole group?”

Them: “Yeah, man. It took us a bit of a while to make these look as authentic as possible, but now that I look at it, I think we did a fine job.”

(I tried to join in the conversation so not as to seem awkward because I haven’t said anything to them at all but wave hi.)

Me: “Uhm, so, is Star Wars better than Star Trek? I haven’t really watched any of them.”

(And just at that moment, my friend turns around and gives me a look that can only be described as “what have you done?”)

Friend: *without skipping a beat starts laughing* “Come on, man. Quit joking. You’ve practically seen the whole trilogy!”

(And that was the time I almost started World War 3 at Comic-Con.)

(It is 2003 and my grandmother is visiting. I have been learning to play to clarinet and my grandmother wants to hear me play a piece. I choose to play the theme to “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”)

Me: *once I have finished* “Do you recognize that theme? I’m sure you’ve heard it before.”

Grandmother: “Nope, I don’t remember that one.”

Me: “It’s the theme from Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

Grandmother: “That’s way too new. You’d have to play something from my day.”

(‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ ran from 1987-1994; hardly new for 2002.)

Me: “Okay, how about this one?” *starts playing ‘The Battle Hymn of the Republic’*

Grandmother: *realizing what I am implying* “Oh, you’re a bad boy!”

(I am in bed with my boyfriend watching TV. We are pretty much engaged but he hasn’t officially proposed yet. After, a trailer for some romantic comedy comes on:)

Me: “Do you want to see that just to see [Popular Actress] in her underwear?”

Boyfriend: “No. I don’t like romantic comedies, and neither do you.”

(We high-five.)
