    More information on the Star Trek line of fragrances. Going where no fragrance has gone before.

    I can't believe these still haven't been released! I thought the release was supposed to coincide with the opening of the movie. Nomad took out quite a few redshirts, eh Redneck? Including, briefly, Mr. Scott. And I think those other scattered redshirts were killed by the cloud creature in the episode Obsession (there's got to be a sillage joke in there somewhere).

    This is really clever and funny, but they really should have released these with the movie and sold them next to the popcorn and milk duds to get any real exposure and sales out of the idea.

    My theater had their own weird promotion. They took popcorn, colored it green, flavored it with raspberry and dubbed it Spock-corn.

    It tasted very bizarre.

    Where the heck is my Tiberius fragrance I ordered months ago

    Definitely a sillage joke! Makes me want to break out my Obsession For Men and see what happens at work tomorrow!

    In reading the synopsis of the Obsession episode on Wikipedia, I'm struck by how 60's it is. No problem that can't be solved by a big enough bomb! Oh, well. If it was on Next Generation, they would have pursued an alien connection, but figured out that the creature was really Q up to no good, testing humanity. On Deep Space 9, they would have figured out how it was some kind of shape-shifter, set off on a rampage as an unintended consequence of Cardassian imperialism, and brought it into an alliance with somebody. And on Voyager, they would have discovered it was a refugee from some kind of thoughtless human cloud colonization, and just needed some love.

    Hmmm. Maybe it was really just sillage from Red Shirt, going back in time to create the conditions for its own existence. Or do I mean forward in time?

    On second thought, I will NOT be wearing Obsession tomorrow!

    I emailed the place I ordered the cologne from and they said it's being released this week.

    Haha. I made a reference to this episode in my review for H.M. Hanae Mori! The episode focused on the creature's scent in which it used to communicate its motives.

    Geek alert:

    Back in the day (1973-75), me and a couple of like-minded sci-fi buffs started a Star Trek club in HS. I was Dr. McCoy...... I knew the name of EVERY episode from the original series, who the guest star was, and even the writers.

    I too am a life-long, huge HUGE fan of Star Trek and can barely remember watching episodes (particularly the big cockatoo ape creature A Private Little War) in our old house that we moved out of when I was five years old. When I see that there's a TOS or TNG episode on t.v., I avoid reading the description and play "Name that Show!" I'm only so-so with actual titles, more like, "Oh, this is the one where...." I usually get it within a few seconds. My DS9 is more rusty, and I haven't seen every Voyager episode, maybe just 75%. I quit Enterprise about midway thru the first season and have no regrets about that.

    In High School, I was a card-carrying member of DWFCA, the Doctor Who Fan Club of America. I still have the card, and might even still have some old Whovian Times newsletters in storage somewhere.

    OMG - the cockatoo ape creature! Now if they'd release a scent with that darn thing on the label, I'd buy it for sure. It's gotta have some amazing musk!

    Tiberius actually looks like it might have a chance in my wardrobe. Red Shirt sounds... well... kinda generic. And I'm not sure if Pon Farr translates as "Britney Spears" or not, but I'm not taking the chance!

    OMG, I loved Dr Who, but for me the only legit DR was Tom Baker. I've watched the other incarnations, but Tom was the best. I've also seen probably 75% of Voyager. I kinda liked Enterprise, but maybe it was mostly the theme song. My 2 adult children are also ST fans, although they are more for TNG and Deep Space Nine, which I never watched regularly.

    I think that the green Orion slave girl should have a very skanky fragrance. BTW, I went as her at a scifi Halloween party in '73. Took me days to get the green food coloring out of my eyebrows.

    You're only at risk if you're in a landing party with Kirk.

    Scotty was usually safe! Though he got hurt a few times, even died once.

    For me, David Tennant has bumped Tom, but if I went back and watched some old episodes I might change my mind.

    When I first saw the episode "Rose," I think I was literally jumping up and down at the end. I definitely shouted something like, "Oh wow, Doctor Who is back! It's fantastic! That was AWESOME! I LOVE Christopher Eccleston! He might be my favorite Doctor EVER!"

    At the end of "Parting of the Ways," I actually cried, and I was so, so angry at Christopher Eccleston for making me love him and sticking around for only one season. And I didn't like the looks of the new guy at all. "Total pantywaist trying too hard to be eccentric in the old style," I'd decided from those few seconds of introduction at the end.

    Then I watched "The Christmas Invasion." "OMG, I LOVE David Tennant! He's sooooo cute! Isn't he cute?! And heroic! And gallant! OMG, he might be my favorite Doctor EVER!" So I'm going to have faith that I'll like the new fellow too. The writing is really what makes the show so outstanding, and besides, I'm a total sucker for guys with English accents.

    ST: TNG was a wonderful show. It took more than a few episodes for the characters to establish themselves and feel comfortable, but the first season is still worth bearing with, I think. DS9, on the other hand, hit the ground running. The characters were all fantastically written, and the station had the feel of a big, somewhat dysfunctional, extended family from the beginning. Other than the (pointless, imo) forays into the Mirror Universe, I loved the entire show and though the end was very satisfying.

    I not only couldn't warm up to Enterprise, I hated the theme song!

    I received an email from Genki Wear saying there was something wrong with the packaging (read: they f-ed up something) and it will another 2 weeks until these three fragrances are released.

    FINALLY got my bottle of Tiberius.

    It's not what I expected. It's very warm, spicy/peppery and musky. I expected something very, very generic "fresh" and was surprised how different it is. Wore it last night for a shopping night out. It lasted a lot longer than expected, too.

    Worth it for the collection. I didn't get the others in the line, though.

    Sorry, I missed your question until just now! I liked Voyager well enough. Good writing, well-acted, humorous and mostly engaging characters (I really liked the doctor). I say this with the disclaimer that I didn't watch the show regularly because those were the days before tivo, and it seems to me UPN moved the show around quite a bit, iirc. And it didn't engage me enough for me to make sure I was available at whatever day/time it aired, unlike DS9 and TNG. Maybe I'll catch repeats some day (I can't resist getting pulled into old episodes of TNG) and listen for the technobabble.

    Hmm, I might have to track down some Tiberius. Actually, I'd love to find all three. Unfortunately out here in Silicon Valley, the geek capital of the world, I imagine they're not likely to be found sitting on whatever store shelves for very long. Maybe I'll stop by the comic book store. I discontinued pull service a while back, but the guy might be nice to me and let me smell some juice if he has any.

    LOL! The Pon Farr is a generic floral/fruity/aquatic for women. More of a comic store novelty but wearable.

    I would think the race of Vulcans (hot-blooded as Romulans under the logical exterior) would have their women in something more oriental or spicy. Or would they only wear this scent after the brief passion allowed them every seven years? LOL! I think naming the scent T'Pring would have sounded prettier...

    "Shirtless Kirk Cologne for Men

    Sometimes the only thing standing between you and a successful mission is a thin piece of cloth. Whether in battle or love, you know the shirt is simply… optional."

    Another temptress female character was Elaan of Troyius. The women of her planet of Elas had aphrodisiac tears. Someone should find a way to bottle that in a perfume...that would make funnier ad copy than Shirtless Kirk.

    Oooh, gawd, yes! France Nuyen was completely stunning as Elaan! As a child, she was my personal, unattainable ideal of feminine beauty (me = Celtic type, and though I have Cherokee/Sioux cheekbones - not so noticeable with moonburn skin ) Loved the wig and costume they had her in, rather more Egyptian/Minoan than Turkish, but hey. And come to think of it, her name is Vietnamese...?

    But how about "Is There In Truth No Beauty?" Ad copy: All ye know, and all ye need to know... (luuved Diana Muldaur as Miranda Jones)

    And "Tribble" - the scent for young, urban ravers who need no excuse.

    "Snow Queen." A cool scent of citrus and mint. For "All Our Yesterdays," and the beauty Mariette Hartley, the snow-bound maiden who lost her heart to Mr. Spock. I think that is the only character in the original series in which Mr. Spock falls in love.
