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.


Reddit users like Jackin_The_Beanstalk loved the sweater and hoped it would become tradition:

"I wonder if she'll pass that dress along to The Next Generation when she doesn't want it anymore."

Of course, Mac_User_ couldn't let the sweater pass without a well-placed Star Trek pun.

"Make it sew."

Saul_Firehand joined in on the fun:

"She looks ready to engage some of that candy."

grafxguy1 made a crack about the woman's age (which is significantly older than the average Starfleet officer):

"She's fallen and she can't beam up."

torkel-flatberg played along perfectly:

"Now she's in tribble"

skinrust suspects she's buying all that candy for her children:

"Or her kids Khan just buy their own"

Hawkman1701 made note of an important Star Trek fact:

"That's just a Cadet uniform. Never too late to reach for the stars."

aheadwarp9 wondered whether the woman is a Trekkie or whether the outfit was a happy accident:

"I want to think that was on purpose... but it almost looks like it could have been an accident."

Myschly wouldn't be surprised if the woman was actually a huge fan!

"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."

sadi89 thinks it may be a little bit of both:

"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."

foodown knows exactly how they'd react to the woman in public:

"If I passed this lady, I'd just nod casually and greet her, 'Admiral.'"

satisfactsean points out that the Stafleet resemblance doesn't stop with her outfit:

"Shes even got the Tuvok style cut."

Happy Holidays from Starfleet and the entire Star Trek: The Next Generation crew!

Raise your hands--who had an emo phase in the 2000s? I know I did, as did a lot of people around me. All of us heard “It's just a phase" from our parents at some point, but when you're a kid, life as we know it seems so permanent.

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
