    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

  2. Paula says:

    I wonder what the middle son did to deserve getting the red shirt of death – lol.

  3. Cole Sprouse says:

    hiya guys this is the real cole sprouse i want to say thanks to all of my fans luv you guys bye

  4. Allison says:

    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!

  5. Missy says:

    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.

  6. George says:

    OH MY GOODNESS! I know this family! SUPER AWKWARD!

  7. Traci says:

    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

  8. Rachel says:

    OH jesus.

  9. Adele K says:

    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…

  10. Curlsworth says:

    I don’t care what anybody says. This is awesome. :D Awkward, yes. But awesome.

  11. HesDeadJim says:

    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.

    • Missy says:

      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. :D

  12. impostor says:

    Live long and prosper…If you can find someone that wants to.

  13. haha says:

    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

    • Missy says:

      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.

  14. skyeleo says:

    Beam me up, Scotty…! lol very cute -what a fun family

  15. kurt says:

    I’d frame it!

  16. j. lowe says:

    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.

  17. Rob M. says:

    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 =][=

  18. S says:

    Dollars to donuts, these people live in Minneapolis/Saint Paul.

  19. ckirk says:

    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!

  20. Manuel says:

    I love this picture !
    What a cool family !!!!

  21. Seddah says:

    God, Riker was sexy.

  22. Jay B says:

    The daughter is a hot Treky!!!

  23. Lisa says:

    How said for me…. this one doesn’t seem so odd.

  24. Bob says:

    O.K. O.K. , now you ALL know what my friends look like !

  25. Dave says:

    Would have been cooler if they dressed as Klingons

  26. Renee says:

    I wish my family was this cool

  27. Max says:

    Really kewl photo!

  28. Auds says:

    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.

  29. Christine says:

    oh no, some of them don’t have on their com badges, now we won’t be able to locate them.

  30. Cate says:

    laugh long and prosper… unless you’re in the red shirt .

  31. Ferrari says:

    The only thing more awkward is me knowing my brother and sister-in-law had the same photo taken. Our mom made the costumes.

  32. Jen says:

    Does the kid in the red shirt know he’ll be the first the get offed?

  33. Lisa says:

    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!

  34. Lis says:

    I LOVE THIS.

    And here I was all worried I was the only one…

  35. House_Draven says:

    What an awesome photo! I wish my mother and stepfather had been this cool.

  36. Tom says:

    None of them. These are Next Generation uniforms (Season 2 onward, Type A)

  37. Laney says:

    I want to do this!!!!! Poor kid in the red shirt!! Lol I wonder which one is Kirk?

  38. Tracy says:

    I wish this was my family- well it kind of was, but I guess we were not quite trek enough. I love this pic!!

  39. Justrob1978 says:

    Dad and the little one don’t have combadges.

  40. Josie says:

    Next Gen – red shirt is command, not death sentence.

    • Missy says:

      Do ladies in star trek wear dresses?

      • Bela says:

        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!

  41. lildeedee says:

    I think it’s an awesome. My family would never do that. I just might when I have mine.lol

  42. alpatroll says:

    I’m with Wil Wheaton on this one — *made* of awesome!

  43. Jack says:

    Yea – wondering what the kid in the red shirt did to PO his dad.

  44. BassBone says:

    These are TNG era uniforms, so red is command, not security. I would worry about the kids in yellow first.

  45. Awesome Robot says:

    More like Awesome Family Photos!

  46. Gene says:

    It’s a shame about the red shirt.

  47. MasenkaBlast says:

    I feel bad for the sibling that’s a red-shirt!

    • Joseph says:

      Doesn’t count, it’s a TNG red shirt.

      • Michael says:

        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.”

        • Tyler says:

          Actually in TNG ensign’s and lieutenants wore yellow, bridge crew and commanding officers wore red.

          • haha says:

            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

  48. PatTheIceman says:

    I love this! What a great shot and the family that Treks together stays together. Hope the Live Long and Prosper!

  49. Cincha says:

    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!

    • ellenofthenorth says:

      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?
