Star Trek: Are you people on LSD?
Star Trek offered a "Writer's Guide" to writers who wanted to write scripts for the show. There are two versions that I have found: one a serious one that gives background on the characters, their inner motivations ("Captain Kirk is lonely in his command chair. So very very  lonely" or "Mr Spock has a secret crush on his Captain but will never admit it.") Think of them as an early FAQ.

But there are occasional flashes of humor. In the two pages below, the wannabe writer is asked to take part in a quiz. Hopefully if you click several times you will get to a full size, readable version.

The guide ends with the following question

Q: Are you people on LSD?
A: We tried, but we couldn't keep it lit.



PS. Bonus points if you guess the real correct answer to "who would Captain Kirk hug on the bridge with only seconds to live?" [A Dreamwidth post with comment count unavailable comments | Post or read on Dreamwidth| How to use OpenID]

Great for me...not so great for the neighbors.

Yet it continues.
