When watching the Next Food Network Star, all I could focus on was how much contestant Liza Garza's hairdo was bugging me, because she looked like a Vulcan and/or a Romulan. ESPECIALLY when she had a headband on, or had some hair tucked behind her ears.
Don't believe me?
Here's her p.r. shot from the show:
Here's a link to various female Vulcan hairstyles.
Then there are the communication devices. All those little earpieces/cellular hands-free devices that make people look like they are communicating with the Enterprise, begging to be beamed up. We're becoming more and more Borg-like. Put down the electronic equipment and step away from the devices.
Finally, there's this apparatus (shown below) that was quickly assembled--and then removed--from the local construction site across the way. Forgive me, but does it remind anyone else of the early mobile transporter devices from Star Trek: Enterprise? (Or am I the only one who actually tried to watch the first few seasons of that show?)
Look closely -- You've got the "laser beam," the "force field," and the ubiquitous redshirts.
I don't care if it's a surveying device. I swear the aliens are here!
Hi. I'm Auntie Nettie, and I need a sci-fi intervention. But frak it, just not until after the Series 4 Doctor Who finale on Friday. (That David Tennant is yummy!)
Live Long and Prosper.
