Sev Trek: The X Generation

With the end of the original series trek,the Sev Trek crew moved onto the X Generation. Before I start re-posting from the archive, here is an introduction to the crew. 20 years ago when I first came across these I thought they were funny.  Some of them now seem quite sophomoric... 😐 . I guess some things don't get better with age 😜 Jet Lag Pinchhard As Captain of the Enterforaprize,

The Orville - scifi humor!

The Orville is a scifi comedy show coming to FOX this coming fall.  It being on FOX, if the show is any good it will most likely be cancelled (LOL), but I hope it's good and it stays on the air (if Family Guy is still on the air...then surely this must remain as well!)Many seem to be comparing it to Galaxy Quest, but I think the comparison is a bit off.  Galaxy Quest was about actors playing
