Make It So, Picard

A good friend of mine is a Star Trek fan*. I put an asterisk there because  he is completely in love SPECIFICALLY with Star Trek: The Next Generation. In fact, I posted the following video on Tumblr Trends (see video below) and he responded with the following:

“At least he likes Capt. Picard…. I’m tired of all the Kirk-fanatics out there! Picard is the better captain, get over it!”

HAH! That made my day.

Here’s the video that sparked the outrage:

And that brings us to the newest shirt from our friends from Seattle, Might Tees! They’ve deviated a little from their Apple/Tech related tees, and instead venture into the outer galaxies of geekdom. The T-Shirt is called Make It So and it features my friends ALL TIME FAVORITE Star Trek captain, Jean-Luc Picard.

I asked my friend if he’d allow Captain Picard to penetrate him, you know, in a jail bait rape kind of way. He’s response: “lol.” He never gave me an affirmative no. Star Trek fans are hard core.

Make It So is available now from Might Tees for $31.99.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 7 (February 12, 2010 to February 18, 2010):

If bridges were indestructible, would you still burn them?

Listen to me, youngsters, it’s never a good thing to burn bridges. Never.

I know just enough to be confused.

This was a slogan suggestion from a friend of mine. He seems to be having a “difficult” time with science these days. And so this slogans fits his situation perfectly! But I can definitely relate, hah!

Hallucinations are ok if you’ve got an imaginary friend nearby.

If you’re gonna suffer from hallucinations then why not suffer with a friend nearby – even if it’s an imaginary friend. Who cares at this point!

If baseball is America’s pastime then what’s wiffleball?

Who here plays wiffleball? I never have. Does that make me less of a man?

Science is magical.

Oh good God science is magical. Wow, science, magic and God all in once sentence. Amazing. Hmmm, maybe that should’ve been the slogan instead!

The truth should never be harder than hunting for unicorn.

Because, well, we should always tell the truth ;)

Teleporters will one day deem email obsolete.

At least those Trekkies hope so!

The Evolution of Spock by Adam de la Mare

Here’s a T-Shirt that was created by Adam de la Mare in celebration of the recent Star Trek reboot. I did happen to catch the J.J. Abrams directed Star Trek on opening night and I have to admit that, despite my initial hesitation, I left the theater thoroughly captivated and wanting more! Abrams is an awesome storyteller. 

The Evolution of Spock is essentially a tribute to our favorite Vulcan’s most recognizable characteristic – his pointy ears! You can pick up this tee from RedBubble for $25.94.
