Damn you, future!

So I've recently gotten the wife interested in Star Trek: the Next Generation, and we've been recording a TON of episodes on the DVR to watch later.  Today, we watched the two part pilot episode - Encounter at Farpoint I / II - and while she enjoyed the beginning of TNG, I (having been a fan of Star Trek TNG since it originally aired in the late 80's - 90's) enjoyed the best TNG had to offer.  I liked how they split the ship into the battle & saucer halves to get you hooked on the tech advancements from the start, I liked DeForest Kelley cameo-ing as a crotchety 137-year-old Admiral, and I like how we find out that Wes Crusher has inherited Bill Cosby's chest-o-sweaters, but what is the best the future has to offer?

This:




Now, if you watch the episode, you see women wearing the dress first, as an obvious throwback to the Star Trek from the 60's, but then this guy is just casually thrown in, like, "hey, it's the future!  Guys wear dresses all the time!"  Were we supposed to hope to see Picard in one of these?  How much do you think this actor made, anyway?

  1. That kind of ruined my already-lacking desire to watch star trek. Ridiculous cross-dressers.
