How to Point Out Something So Large That People Don't Notice I

 You can still enter to win a signed copy of the new edition of Off to Be the Wizard (Magic 2.0). In addition to that book, the prize package will also include the Basic Instructions 2014 Box Calendar, and a signed copy of a book by a different author. This week, the bonus book is The 27th Mile, By Ray Charbonneau, and in this case I'll point out that if you chose to go to Ray's site and purchase a copy, all of the proceeds will go to help victems of the Boston Marathon bombings.

You can enter below by friending Off to Be the Wizard on Facebook, following me on Twitter, or by answering a question.

Sadly, the offer is only open to people in the United States. Shipping costs, what can I say? The contest closes on, April 19th at 12am, then a new give away with a different bonus book will begin. Thanks, and good luck!

How dare Smitty, TOS and TNG are different shows. Related, yes, but not the same.

And I like your paraphrase of "Make it so."

And that's why the Star Trek: TOS edition of Cards Against Humanity outsells the TNG edition by like a zillion to one.

I've never seen such a strong case for Picard's superiority over Kirk.

I'd like to enter this but don't use Facebook or Twitter so, in answer to your question, I still prefer paper books because I'm a bit old fashioned like that.

Picard was superior to Kirk because he was also the formidable ruthless highly-intelligent Karla in SMILEY'S PEOPLE. Kirk would never have made it as a character in SMILEY'S PEOPLE except maybe as a brief random taxi driver.

Picard threw away the Kurlan naiskos, though. 12000 years old and perfectly intact? Meh. Chuck it! I've got a photo album to find!

Kirk never wore a hairpiece in his life. Shatner has been known to wear one.

Baldness made Shatner look bad; Stewart made baldness look good.

The most famous TNG quote could also be "Mister Worf. Fire!" spoken by Commander Riker at the end of The Best of Both Worlds, or of course "Resistance is futile" (multiple Borg), "I am Locutus of Borg," (Picard as Locutus) or "Today is a good day to die" (multiple Klingons).

The most famous TNG misquote is "Shut up, Wesley!"

"Just" a glorified referee? But that's exactly what a great leader is! Especially when the underlings are talented knowledge workers.

Panel 3...quote from "Galaxy Quest??"
