Full power! Shake off the hirsute!

Strip by: Ian Boreham

{Captain James Kirk is issuing orders on the bridge of the Enterprise. He has a messy beard.}

Kirk: Mister Sulu! We're out of range of the Pogonians' beard ray now.

Kirk: Lay in a course for Celeb IV. The women there all like a fellow who's rough but stylish. Yes, Mister Sulu, many of the men do too.

Kirk: Set shavers to stubble!

The author writes:

I chose the name "Pogonians" because it sounds like a Star Trek alien race, and for sound etymological reasons. Then I googled to see if the name had been used before. Apparently members of the on-line gaming site Pogo sometimes refer to themselves as Pogonians. If you are one of them, you might find this strip confusing.
