Star Trek: Disco

“Klingon Warbird decloaking Captain!”

“Raise shileds and prepare to BOOGIE!”

“Evasive manoeuvres?”


“The Klingons are retreating Captain. Their metal beats are no match for our groovy moves!”

“Set a course! Warp factor 8 to FUNKY TOWN!”

    I bet there had to be disco dances at late 70’s Trek cons. Kirk seems like a guy who’d really love discos.

    1. Yeah, I bet that’s exactly what goes down in engineering after hours. Plus the hooch brewed in leftover warp coils. Scotty didn’t really have that accent, he was just half-cut all the time!
