Wait ... Let me get this straight:

Marina Siritis flashed YOU ... her LEGS?! And
- OK? - AND on Jonathan Frakes' INSISTANCE?!!!

This story of yours, to put it mildly, strains
ALL credibility! Do you know how many famous
wymin have flashed me their legs - with and/or
with OUT the urging of one of their male celebrity
friends? A grand total of NONE! That's right ...
a GOOSE EGG!!! I'm trying to be enthusiastic about
this fantastic tale, but ... no. You ask too much of me.



Have I ever been known to stretch the truth? Sure I'm the foremost st.com politician but I've always been open and honest. So, yeah, our view of Frakes was blocked where I was sitting so he got up to move a lecturn in the way and said sorry it was blocking the view of us for the people over there. I shouted, "IT'S OKAY WE CAN SEE SIRTIS!" She asked what I said and Frakes said I wanted to see MORE Sirtis. In that sexy accent of her's she said, "I didn't shave my legs this morning but you can't see that back there." Lifted her pants leg and threw one up in the air to an applauding crowd.

I love it, Finn! However, I would not expect names on a ship patch since the ship will not always have those men and there would be many more names involved. I wish the establishment would get behind this. You do nice work.

Shakedown crew is traditionally minimal.  I'll work on an alternate patch.

You think they would make NX-07 Buran?

I don't see why not.  Seems to be in tradition.  Maybe even an NX-08 Soyuz.


Here's an alternate Discovery patch:

The planet is a nice touch.

I like the idea of NXs being named for Earth spacecraft. Kinda goes with the theme song.

Come on star trek. Get behind this patch idea! Do some marketing and generate some interest!

It's the Northwest Passage, one of the most famous expeditions of the HMS Discovery.

Here's the last one.  The motto is "To the Stars for Science," which is a play on the title of a book about the original Atlantis from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, the ship's namesake.


Trekkers should recognize the quote from a certain movie, it's by David Herbert Lawrence.

Haha, STIV. Very well done and very dynamic. I truly hope you get recognized for your efforts, Finn.
