Day By Day


  • Wayne

    We all know how the episode with Gorn ended up…

  • KenH

    Shoot it in the face….

  • rpopp

    Never underestimate your opponent no matter how illogical and revolting their argument they are good at what they do.

    “Weaponless, I face the creature the Metrons called a ‘Gorn’. Large, reptilian… Like most Humans, I seem to have an instinctive revulsion to reptiles. I must fight to remember that this is an intelligent, highly advanced individual, the captain of a starship like myself. Undoubtedly, a dangerously clever opponent.”

  • Earl Goudie

    This episode of Star Trek ended with both Kirk and the Gorn alive.
    Kirk refused to kill his adversary because he may have thought he was protecting his ship in the original encounter.
    If I remember correctly the Metron offered to destroy the Gorn ship and Kirk refused that as well.

    • KenH

      The big difference also being, was that the Gorn WERE the injured party, and had a Confederation not that different from the UFP. Peaceful relations were easy from this point on 🙂

    Do we get a Donkey Kong reference for free, too?

  • Joseph Meyer

    You may want to check your sources. The news articles I have seen identify the Cindy Gorn who turned herself in not as the professor from Hunter College of that name but as a grad student from Colombia. Wouldn’t want to pull a Spike Lee.

  • Texas is a state of mind

    Chris —Gorn today, then Gorn tomorrow? 🙂

  • LoneStrSt8

    I wonder if the police were ‘Merciful,and quick’ with her?

  • Bill G

    Sadly, this one is not fictional.

  • Kip Allen

    I remember that episode!

    • Gideon Reed

      I recall seeing that episode during it’s first run.
      Now on to the left(black)right(white) Frank Gorshin of it all.
      I’m away. My sincerest wishes for a Happy New Year all.

  • Doug Dean

    “You idiot! Didn’t anyone tell you not to do it yourself? Remember you get the clueless students to do it so your hands stay clean!”

  • Doug Dean

    “How? make it a classproject, duh!”

  • B Woodman

    I can’t say exactly why, but this Gorny professor bears an uncanny resemblance to Moochelle Obola.
    “Must. Resist. Urge. To. Eat. School. Lunch. Beam. Me. Up. Scotty.”

    • Or should that be “Beam me up Scotty, there’s no intelligent life here”?

      • B Woodman

        Close enough. Thanks. For. Completing. That. For. Me.

  • Pamela

    Such nicely toned arms the Gorn has. But that tacky dress and the wearer of said dress, has to go, though it is much better than that black widow spider number worn in 2008.

  • Stormhawk

    To the tune of John Denver’s “Back Home Again”

    There’s a Gorn across the valley, with a shale knife in his claw and he’s hankerin to stick me thru the heart,

    But you see I’ve got this cannon, with diamonds in the pipe and I’m ready to blow him apart.

    Say it’s good to blow you away again, oh yes it is.

    Better you than me that buys the farm, my friend,

    and hey, it’s good to blow you away again.

  • SteveInCO

    I have heard of Born-Again Christians, but is there such a thing as a Gorn-again progressive?

  • Observer

    I don’t think we’ll show our “Gorn” the same mercy that Kirk did for his.

  • I’d pay for her birth control, just so that we don’t end up with “Children of the Gorn”

    • B Woodman

      D’OH! Next time, spew alert please!! That one is worthy of the Interwebz Award of The Day.
