This family boldly goes where no other family has gone before.

Wow I guess we all know which child was unloved. Because we all know what happens to the red shirts in every episode …they are expendable
I wonder what the middle son did to deserve getting the red shirt of death – lol.
hiya guys this is the real cole sprouse i want to say thanks to all of my fans luv you guys bye
I’m a Stargate SG-1 fan…I’d totally get a picture of myself in one of their uniforms before you could get a Star Trek shirt near me! I swear, the dad’s expression is the best, he just thinks he is so awesome and his idea to get the family to Trek together is original. Olan Mills…the final frontier!
Okay, my husband likes star trek. He isn’t an official trekkie or anything, but if he was, I would so support doing this for him. This is cute. I don’t find this as awkward as maybe a few of the kids might.
OH MY GOODNESS! I know this family! SUPER AWKWARD!
OMG!! I know this family!!! REALLY!! The mom is awesome!!! I think is more crazy than awesome..just glad she didnt give my mom crazy ideas!! xoxo
I feel so geeky for getting all the reference. This comes from a girl who painted Trill spots on herself for cons. And owns a uniform…
I don’t care what anybody says. This is awesome. Awkward, yes. But awesome.
Sadly, the kid on the far right is destined to die young, if he’s not dead already. The redshirt never makes it more than ten minutes into any Star Trek episode. I can’t believe they didn’t know that.
At first when I read this, I was stumped. But thanks for clarifying the red shirt theory in Star Trek. This comment is much funnier than when I read the first sentence.
Live long and prosper…If you can find someone that wants to.
you can tell the true trekkie fans on here. i.e. the ones who get that its next gen costumes and the bodysuit is troi, lol
i’m happy to be in the true trekkie fan category
See, I think it is awesome and I am not a trekkie. I don’t think I have watched even one full episode. But if my husband was a die hard fan, I would dress up for this theme photo. It’s awesome. The entire family seems happy – nothing awkward about that. Pretty much a blessing to have everyone in the family seem happy at once for a change. Glad they had fun with this.
Beam me up, Scotty…! lol very cute -what a fun family
I’d frame it!
I admit to loving this picture. ALOT.
I like that everyone believed in it, especially the kid in the middle. it would have been awesome to see the individual shots that went with this group photo.
h3y, yall certainly rock… i’m sure there will be some geek-nerd-joke-comments, BUT what the heck…. BOLDLY Go ((or as Saints fans would say:: BOLDLY Geaux))…p3ace0uttie =][=
Dollars to donuts, these people live in Minneapolis/Saint Paul.
Am I the ONLY one who finds this just plain weird?! It’s one thing to be a fan of a movie or show, but to dress up like them??! Come ON!
I would advise you to steer clear of any conventions, my naive friend.
Ultimate cool. Not weird at all.
I love this picture !
What a cool family !!!!
God, Riker was sexy.
The daughter is a hot Treky!!!
I must agree.
How said for me…. this one doesn’t seem so odd.
O.K. O.K. , now you ALL know what my friends look like !
Would have been cooler if they dressed as Klingons
I wish my family was this cool
Really kewl photo!
I feel bad for the poor teen girl in the front having to dress in that bazaar body suite with her cornball family. Why doesn’t she get a regular uniform? Stupid sexist crap.
C’mon, Jamie Gertz doesn’t get to pick and choose her roles any more! Cut her some slack!
Okay – THAT was hilarious!
Deanna Troi outfit peoples!
Lighten up feminazi!
oh no, some of them don’t have on their com badges, now we won’t be able to locate them.
laugh long and prosper… unless you’re in the red shirt .
The only thing more awkward is me knowing my brother and sister-in-law had the same photo taken. Our mom made the costumes.
Does the kid in the red shirt know he’ll be the first the get offed?
Love it! We have 3 boys, 18 9 and 5 and we all have our own Star Trek names. Our 9 year old had a Klingon ridge when he was younger and the 5 year old has a little point to his ears, the rest of us just fell into place. We would do something like this being next gen fans. We’re photographers so I see next years family photo project coming together right now with a green screen backdrop effect of us being on the bridge of the Enterprise!
I LOVE THIS.
And here I was all worried I was the only one…
What an awesome photo! I wish my mother and stepfather had been this cool.
None of them. These are Next Generation uniforms (Season 2 onward, Type A)
I want to do this!!!!! Poor kid in the red shirt!! Lol I wonder which one is Kirk?
I wish this was my family- well it kind of was, but I guess we were not quite trek enough. I love this pic!!
Dad and the little one don’t have combadges.
Now, *THAT* Is the best nerd comment yet!
Next Gen – red shirt is command, not death sentence.
Do ladies in star trek wear dresses?
Yes, I recall seeing that dress on TNG although I cannot remember who wore it. I want to say Dr. Pulaski, but it might have been Dr. Crusher. Women definitely wore dresses when not in uniform, but there were uniform dresses as well. In the first few episodes, both men and women wore minidresses!
I think it’s an awesome. My family would never do that. I just might when I have mine.lol
I’m with Wil Wheaton on this one — *made* of awesome!
Yea – wondering what the kid in the red shirt did to PO his dad.
These are TNG era uniforms, so red is command, not security. I would worry about the kids in yellow first.
More like Awesome Family Photos!
It’s a shame about the red shirt.
Bahhh!! Such a nerd Trekkie reference. I love it
TNG redshirts were command, the expendables in TNG wore gold. You fail at being a nerd.
I feel bad for the sibling that’s a red-shirt!
Doesn’t count, it’s a TNG red shirt.
Oh yeah like TNG red shirts were safe. Hmm… Away team consisting of Picard, Riker, Data, Dr. Crusher, and of course me, Ensign Abromowitz. Hmmmm. Guess I’ll go check out that strange pulsing light over there…. ruh roh. “Picard to Enterprise 5 to.. oh hell, 4 to beam up.”
Actually in TNG ensign’s and lieutenants wore yellow, bridge crew and commanding officers wore red.
They even did a great job getting troy’s one piece leotard for the girl. and yes red was crew and commanding officeres, the yellow shirts were more likely to die on away missions
I love this! What a great shot and the family that Treks together stays together. Hope the Live Long and Prosper!
I think it’s awesome that Mom sewed all these costumes! Bless her heart!
Dad looks all too happy to be there, btw. The kids are adorable. I’d LOVE to see an updated photo with grandchildren in Trek onesies!
Well, forget about any grandkids from the guy on the right. You know what always happens to the guy in the red shirt, don’t you?
I see as I read more comments that I’ve revealed just how very old I am. I only know the uniforms from the first round. I was scarred at 8 and will never be able to wear a red shirt again.
