If anyone was born to read “Star Trek” erotic fan fiction aloud, it’s Mr. Sulu himself, George Takei. The actor sensually read through some truly superb Trekkie purple prose on “Watch What Happens Live” this week and, oh my, was it hot and heavy. Watch above!

My mom — you guys call her Amelia — turns 34 on November 16th and I’m worried she’s going to be depressed about it. She found three grey hairs the other day. Anyway, I think this cheeky “Star Trek” T-shirt would cheer her up about her advancing age, because despite being old, she’s totally still a Vulcan in the streets and a Klingon in the sheets. The problem is that because of dog discrimination, I don’t have a job and have no money. Can someone loan me $27 plus shipping and handling? And help me wrap it? Thanks in advance!

When I envision my ideal day, it involves a treehouse, Sir Patrick Stewart, marijuana and the vast acting knowledge held in the brilliant mind of the man who played Captain Jean Luc Picard. Here, Stewart explains to his girlfriend, Sunny Ozell, the finer points of the “quadruple take.” It is amazing. [Gawker]
Know any unemployed Klingons living in Illinois? Then you should probably go tell them their lives have become considerably easier. But since they don’t have a word for “unemployed,” you might have some difficulty explaining it, so bring a phaser in case things escalate.
The Illinois Department of Employment Security began offering Klingon as one of the languages its website can be viewed in as a way of getting a bit of attention earlier this summer when “Star Trek Into Darkness” was arriving in theaters. They decided to keep it on afterward when they realized that the novelty of it was drawing more people to their site, which offers information on unemployment benefits, veterans’ benefits, and job searching resources. “Whenever people are drawn to our website to see the benefits that we offer, that’s a good thing,” spokesman Greg Rivara told the Chicago Tribune.

I’m Going To Watch Badger’s “Star Trek” Script Scene From Last Night’s “Breaking Bad” Over And Over Again
Last night, worlds collided. The season premiere of “Breaking Bad.” And a supremely stonerific “Star Trek” plot. Total nerdgasm. NYMag.com has a totally wonderful parsing of the validity of Badger’s “Star Trek” script idea, including whether Scotty could actually beam the contents of Kirk’s stomach into space. (It was in watching this scene that I realized I’m wildly attracted to Badger.) Also, love Skinny Pete’s line about Bones: ”Why do you think McCoy never uses the transporter? Because he’s a doctor, bitch!” Watch the whole scene above and feel free to discuss last night’s premiere episode of “Breaking Bad” in the comments! [NYMag.com]
Brilliant makeup blogger Sahily recreated the “Star Trek Into Darkness” movie poster image ON HER EYELID as part of her Summer Movie Makeup series. The craziest part is Sahily is not even a “Star Trek” fan; she was just inspired by the movie art. She says this was an artistic experiment, and “not a wearable look,” but I beg to differ. In fact, I think Amelia and I have found our new daily makeup routine. [Pretty In Pigment via Neatorama]
It’s like the genius minds at Vinport Wines know my desires even before I do, as it never occurred to me that my life was missing “Star Trek”-themed wine until the company announced they were releasing three wines named after classic “Trek” episodes. For Vinport to send me all three – “The City on the Edge of Forever,” “Mirror Mirror,” and “The Trouble With Tribbles” — so I could review them based on my expertise in both wine drinking and “Trek” trivia would only be logical. Hint, hint. [Laughing Squid] [Photo: Splash News]
“Star Trek”‘s Captain James T. Kirk was my first crush. When I was five — and clearly part of a super nerdy family — my dad used to make up stories for me before bed. I was always an Ensign or a Yeoman on the Enterprise (with a sweet beehive, natch) in the tales and Kirk was, like, the beautiful, blond, manly hero. He was such a stud — and had a serious way with women. The guy bagged a new alien slave girl in every episode! How did he do it? Check out Captain Kirk’s Guide To Women above!
