Episode 1.2: Charlie X

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

That faceless woman groping around the corner of the corridor is one of the creepiest things in Star Trek. *shudder*

The iguana, on the other hand, is just cute.

One thing I didn't have space for in the comic is that they mention it's "Thanksgiving back on Earth", so the ship's cook is asked to prepare a special meal. I guess by the 23rd century, cultural assimilation has progressed so far that everyone on Earth (and in space) celebrates American holidays.

Transcript

1
Captain's log, Stardate 1533.6. Picking up civilian passenger from cargo ship Antares. Because as a military vessel we totally do that. He was stranded on Thasus at 3 years old and somehow survived...
Captain Ramart: Here. Is. Charlie. He. Is. A. Nice. Boy. We. Are. Totally. Not. Being. Mind. Controlled.
2
Uhura: {singing} Oh, on the starship Enterprise, // There's someone who's in Satan's guise, // With devil ears and devil eyes, // And an uncharacteristic smirk you'll never see again...
3
Kirk: What is it, Antares?
Captain Ramart: {over radio} Beware, Charlie has godlike powers and can destroy things just by—
SFX: Kaboom!!
Uhura: They've mysteriously blown up, Captain.
4
Kirk: Checkmate, Mr Spock! My illogic beats your logic again!
Spock: At a game of pure logic. Fascinating.
5
Yeoman Rand: Charlie slapped me on the behind. I think he has a crush on me.
Kirk: Don't worry, yeoman. I'll have the awkward man to psychotic man-child talk with him.
6
Charlie: You wanted to see me, Captain?
Kirk: We need to release some of your rampant hormonal masculine energy...
7
Kirk: By wrestling without shirts!
8
Sam: Ha ha!
Charlie: Don't laugh at me! I'll make you disappear!
9a
Charlie: And turn people into iguanas!
9b
Charlie: And make people's faces disappear!
SFX: AIIIEEE!!
10
Kirk: Maybe Charlie's not an Earthling, he's a Thasian?
McCoy: Not unless they're exactly like Earthlings.
Spock: You mean like half the aliens in the Galaxy?
11
Kirk: We'll make Charlie control too many things at once. The he won’t have the power to alter reality in major ways.
Charlie: No! I'll make you over-act painfully!
McCoy: It's working!
12
Thasian: We're the Deus ex Thasians. We gave Charlie godlike powers so he could survive on our planet. We know he will destroy humanity, so we'll take him back now.
Charlie: Noooo...!!!
Kirk: Why did you let him go in the first place?!!
