9/6/2003: Japanese Star Trek scooter



Not in a million billion years.

I like Star Trek okay, especially TNG and there have been points in time where I would be considered a big fan. (Although I never went to any conventions.)

But this item, which was produced to promote the Japanese DVD release of Nemesis, is clearly an abomination. A scooter with a tiny 50cc engine, this would not even be fun to ride if your friends never saw you on it. But I bet a 35 mph (55 km/h) scooter is useful in crowded Japan, and so maybe there is a chance a buyer would actually want to ride this every day.

From the people that brought you JAPSCAT.

She had to squeeze in order to fit into the picture frame. It took me a while to realize that it looked odd.

Yeah, but think of the resale value to some pointy-eared fanboi...

Whew! I don't know what that means! I feel much better, thank you.

50CC is nowhere near enough power to even *charge* the phaser banks!

Maybe Scotty can bore/stroke it out to something decent, maybe 65CC.

Oh the shame of it all ... I like the damn thing.

And would have no hesitation about being seen riding it.

I'm just surprised the spokesmodel isn't wearing a) Starfleet uniform or b) some kind of anime-inspired cosplay getup.



hot_pastrami  Monday Sep 8 12:18 PM

That's just... wow. I'd kick my own ass.

Hmmm......Maybe it's time to relinquish the keys?
Oh..wait...this is a test, right? You're going to send the wagon for anyone that agrees?
Well, I'll defend to the death, you're right to ride it.
