Noel Tominack From: (David W Kimball) Date: 5-MAY-1992 23:32:21 Description: all the silly top ten lists you could ever want to read Recently I retired the silly top ten list, but included an offer to mail my entire file containing these lists to any interested party. Well, the response has been overwhelming! So as a public service, I have decided to post the whole shabang. This file contains every silly top ten list I posted this semester. Enjoy, and trek on! I will of course still honor any requests by e-mail. I love getting mail! -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now, the TOP TEN lines from the upcoming TNG episode, "The Enterprise Stops at Taco Bell": 10) (Troi) I sense... indigestion. 9) (Picard) Don't order the fajitas, Number One, they'll go through you at warp nine. 8) (Wesley, guest starring) Look, mister, the sign says you get a free "Little Orphan Annie" cup with any taco salad purchase, and I'm not leaving here till I get one! 7) (Worf) Klingons do NOT eat burritos! 6) (Geordi) I bet if I allowed anti-matter to collide with these chimichangas we could boost warp power by 27 percent! 5) (Dr. Crusher, pointing tricorder at a taco) Inconclusive meat readings, Captain. 4) (Picard) You're on, Number One. Whoever can squirt the most jalapeno sauce up his nose gets treated to dessert. 3) (Riker) What do you mean you don't serve tokelau here?

We keep in touch via e-mail, and recently I suggested to her that we collaborate on a top ten list. She sent the list that you are about to read as a tentative starting point, but I liked it so much that I am posting it without alteration. She is its sole author, and all fan letters, hate mail, and/or death threats may be sent directly to or may be sent to yours truly, who will forward them to her address when I get back. Don't bother posting any remarks - she doesn't read rec.arts.startrek.misc! the TOP TEN reasons Picard won't fire the phasers: -------------------------------------------------- 10) He doesn't know how. 9) He doesn't want to succumb to crew pressure. 8) He doesn't want to lose the women attracted by his sensitive side. 7) He doesn't want to use the same effects as the old show. 6) Emily Post recommends not firing on a first encounter. 5) It saves energy. 4) He is on the holodeck pretending he has a life. 3) He is promoting a kinder, gentler Starfleet. 2) The other ship is probably carrying a relative of Tasha Yar. 1) What would his mother say? the TOP TEN worries of Capt.

Before we get to this week's silly top 10 list, we have a bonus top 10 list. It was written and sent to me by (Noel Tominack, ACS University of Maryland Baltimore County).

Spock had a half-brother, the idea was lame The F\X were all below par In the credits the name, William Shatner, it came Under writer, director, and star. It was a disaster, the bomb was complete It was worse than we even had feared Sybok wasn't the only one feeling the pain At this God-awful movie's premier! Good morning campers! This week we are again fortunate to have a bonus top ten list, again courtesy of (Noel Tominack). So without further delay, here are: TOP 10 Problems Wesley Crusher has at the Starfleet Academy 10. Keeps bumping into doors that don't open for him 9. Doesn't have his Mommy to protect him 8. Will not get his credits in Transporter Science after he accidentally relocated the Academy to South Pole 7. Boothby "accidentally" spraying water on him every chance he can 6. Letters from Hugh G. Rection 5. Former Nova Teammates putting anti-matter in his bed 4. Thought his instructors were kidding when they said "You think you are so smart? YOU teach the damned class!" 3. Academy Internet node does not carry newsgroups 2. The commencement speaker will be the Captian of the Boseman and the number one problem for Wesley Crusher at the Starfleet Academy: 1. He never gets to save the Academy from destruction the TOP TEN lines you'll never hear on Star Trek: The Next Generation ------------------------------------------- 10) Worf: Klingons do *not* play tiddlywinks! 9) Picard: It's too bad we don't live in an enlightened, civilized era like they had in the twentieth century. 8) Geordi: Did you hear Wesley almost got kicked out of the academy again? They caught him smoking pot! Data: (looks puzzled) Pot? (brightens) Ah. Marijuana - a narcotic obtained from the hemp plant. Cannabis. Weed. Mary Jane. Grass. Reefer. Panama red... 7) Troi (to someone she is counseling): You've obviously mistaken me for someone who cares! Now get out! 6) Worf: Ouch! I got a paper cut! 5) a Starfleet admiral: Don't worry about it, Picard, there's plenty of other ships in your quadrant. 4) Riker: Not tonight - I have a headache. 3) Worf: Do we have to beam down right now? The Smurfs are on subspace T.V.! 2) Geordi: We've modified the warp coils by reversing the polarity of the inverse geometric phase integrator and adding a broad-band neutrino flux generator to the hyper-magnetic field controls. Riker: What will that do? Geordi: Not a damn thing, but it sure as hell *sounds* impressive! 1) Picard: Oh, screw the hailing frequencies. Fire all phasers! the TOP TEN T-shirts worn by members of the Enterprise crew ----------------------------------------------------------- 10) (Wesley) Starfleet Academy Funnel Team 9) (Riker) Play Jazz Naked 8) (Worf) Klingons do NOT wear funny T-shirts! 7) (Picard) Make it so! 6) (O'Brien) Beam THIS up! 5) (Data) Cochrane's equations 4) (Wesley) Hard Rock Cafe - Tau Ceti 3) (Geordi) Wanna see my dilithium crystals? 2) (Riker) My Captain got assimilated by the Borg, and all I got was this lousy T-shirt! 1) (Picard) Starship Captains do it at warp speed! NOTE: This week's installment is a collaboration between myself and my sister Katie ( In honor of the fact that it has twice the usual number of authors, it is also twice the normal length of a typical top ten list. The unexpected can be rare on a show like TNG, where the writers' motto is apparently "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle", but hopefully today's entry is proof that TNG can still throw the occasional curve. To wit: the TOP TWENTY surprise plot twists in upcoming TNG episodes ------------------------------------------------------------ 20) Worf signs his son Alexander up for ballet lessons 19) The distress call they have been answering is a prank Wesley sent from the Academy 18) Guinan removes her hat, revealing that she is a Saturday Night Live style Conehead 17) Picard beams down 16) All of Geordi's lines are in words of two syllables or less, with no pseudo-scientific doubletalk 15) Troi runs amok with a machete 14) Barclay is really the Captain; Picard is just an ensign, and all of his "command" has been a holodeck simulation 13) No guest stars are relatives of Tasha Yar 12) Geordi gets a woman 11) Riker *doesn't* get a woman 10) Data states that he cannot use contractions after using one in the previous scene, and the fabric of the universe, unable to withstand the continuity error, is rent asunder 9) Picard wakes up muttering "there's no place like home" 8) Riker accepts command of another starship, the U.S.S. ZZ Top 7) Ten Forward is turned into a strip-joint, with its lead act being Beverly Crusher as "The Dancing, Disrobing Doctor" 6) Tired of not being sure whether he is a lieutenant or a chief petty officer, O'Brien beams the entire bridge crew into a black hole and assumes the rank of Captain 5) Picard fires the phasers 4) "Prime Directive" is the word of the day, entire crew goes "Aaaaahhhhh!!" at the top of their lungs whenever it is mentioned 3) Data's cat, Spot, is revealed as a Romulan spy 2) Wesley is affected the same as the rest of the crew, and a no-name security guard saves the ship 1) Picard switches from Earl Grey to Nestea Instant Tea Mix; does "Nestea Plunge" into swimming pool on holodeck Well, campers, this is the last top ten list I will be posting. I'll have too much work to do the next couple weeks, with finals and all, and then I graduate. If anyone out there wants a copy of any or all of the lists, I will be here for two more weeks, and I will check my mail occasionally, so just e-mail me your requests. I'd like to thank everyone who sent me all the great e-mail. It's been fun. the TOP TEN command decisions Captain Picard has to make -------------------------------------------------------- 10) Should he send Wesley an FTD Pick-Me-Up bouquet? 9) How big a tip to leave in 10-Forward 8) Should he open hailing frequencies or beam over a nice Hallmark card instead? 7) Stock up on minoxidol or turtle wax? 6) Whether or not to have easy-listening music played in the turbolifts 5) Should he put Spock on his Christmas card list? 4) Whether or not to have Data's cat neutered 3) Whether or not to have Commander Riker neutered 2) Bud or Coors? 1) Keep matter/antimatter warp engines or switch over to natural gas? :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: :: David W.
