December 29, 2014 The Gorn. by Chris Muir Share this Share: Tag:Early Days, Men & Women, Progressives
We all know how the episode with Gorn ended up…
Shoot it in the face….
It’s a shame to waste diamonds that way. Here’s a link to her arrest in NYC. http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/woman-brooklyn-bridge-assault-surrenders-article-1.2052627
He coulda used coal 🙂
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.”
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.
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?
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.
Chris —Gorn today, then Gorn tomorrow? 🙂
I wonder if the police were ‘Merciful,and quick’ with her?
Sadly, this one is not fictional.
I remember that episode!
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.
“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!”
“How? make it a classproject, duh!”
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”?
Close enough. Thanks. For. Completing. That. For. Me.
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.
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.
I have heard of Born-Again Christians, but is there such a thing as a Gorn-again progressive?
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”
D’OH! Next time, spew alert please!! That one is worthy of the Interwebz Award of The Day.
