Christmas...the final frontier...these are the voyages of "Starfleet Grandma." In honor of the Holiday season, her picture, taken several years ago, is being re-shared around the internet. In the photo, the woman has inadvertently put on an outfit that matches the Starfleet uniform from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Captain Picard would be proud.
While the colors are a spot-on recreation, what really takes the resemblance over the top is the Christmas tree broach that, at first glance, appears to be a Starfleet combadge.
"I wonder if she'll pass that dress along to The Next Generation when she doesn't want it anymore."
"Make it sew."
"She looks ready to engage some of that candy."
"She's fallen and she can't beam up."
"Now she's in tribble"
"Or her kids Khan just buy their own"
"That's just a Cadet uniform. Never too late to reach for the stars."
"I want to think that was on purpose... but it almost looks like it could have been an accident."
"This. All these dudes just assuming that an older woman can't possibly have enjoyed sci-fi. I never watched Star Trek myself but I know that it actually went into philosophical meanderings etc, it had an intellectual appeal, so it's not that women don't watch sci-fi, they just don't watch mindless sci-fi."
"I think it may have been on accident-purpose. She probably put it on realized what she did and liked it. She looks like she's around my moms age and my mom is a big Star Trek fan."
"If I passed this lady, I'd just nod casually and greet her, 'Admiral.'"
"Shes even got the Tuvok style cut."
Happy Holidays from Starfleet and the entire Star Trek: The Next Generation crew!
