A young man with his pants hanging half off his behind, two gold front teeth, and a half inch thick gold chain around his neck; walked into the local welfare office to pick up his check.

He marched up to the counter and said,
"Hi. You know, I just H A T E drawing welfare. I'd really rather have a job.. I don't like taking advantage of the system, getting something for nothing." The social worker behind the counter said "Your timing is excellent. We Just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur and
bodyguard for his beautiful daughter. You'll have to drive around in his 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL, and he will supply all of your clothes."

"Because of The long hours, meals will be provided. You'll also be expected to escort the daughter on her overseas holiday trips. This is rather awkward to say
but you will also have, as part of your job, the
assignment to satisfy her sexual urges as the daughter is in her mid-20's and has a rather strong sex drive."

The guy, just plain wide-eyed, said, "You're bull******n' me!"

The social worker said, "Yeah, well...
You started it." .....

It’s hard to explain jokes to kleptomaniacs because they always take everything literally.

There are two kinds of people in the world: Those who can extrapolate from incomplete data.

A mathematician, a biologist, and a physicist are sitting in a street cafe watching people going in and out of the house on the other side of the street. First, they see two people going into the house. After a while they notice three people coming out of the house. The physicist says the measurement wasn’t accurate. The biologist says they have reproduced. The mathematician says that if exactly one person enters the house, it will be empty again.

OK, now for those of us "mundanes", how about a "dumbed-down" version of it, explaining all of the scientific jargon?

Also, there is Starship Farragut on the Web, too. :-)


TL

I know. I've seen several of the fan-based ones out there; some are horrendously done, others are a bit better, some even come close to the quality of the original series (TOS, TNG, DS9, Voyager, etc.).

Almost forgot: Marina Sirtis does the computer voice (vice the late Majel Barrett), and in the first episode, Michael Forrest reprises his role as Apollo; Lou Ferrigno even has a role in one of the episodes.

I realize this is about the "ST: Beyond", but has anyone seen the web-based series, "Star Trek Continues" (http://www.startrekcontinues.com/episodes.html)?
Only 6 episodes so far (7th one coming early next month), Based on TOS, same characters as TOS, just different actors portraying them. Todd Haberkorn, portraying Spock doesn't look anything even remotely like Nimoy, as did Zachary Quinto in the recent ST movies, but does a reasonably good job nonetheless.
Chris Pine, who portrays Kirk, also doesn't look (or sound) anything like William Shatner's Kirk (except in certain facial expressions and camera angles) and "Mythbusters'" Grant Imahara plays Sulu a bit "over the top" sometimes. However, for the role of LCDR Scott, they have Chris Doohan, son of the original "Mr. Scott", James Doohan.
The series is basically a "continuation" of various episodes from TOS; example:
In Episode 3, "Fairest of Them All", it's told from the Mirror Universe's ("Mirror Mirror") perspective of what happened after Kirk & Co. returned to their universe.
Some ST fans here may like it, others, not so much, but overall, it (seems) well-done and the scoring is (99%) as good as TOS.
