    I wish I were related to these people

  3. Dream Puppy says:

    I seriously hope to god that they made Christmas cards out of this.

    “If you want a Merry Christmas…MAKE IT SO.

    From, the Rajavatharaprum family….”

    And yes, this is what I will do with my family duh.

  4. Suki says:

    I love it. I would dress like that for a family photo. and Star Trek is way better than Star Wars by the way.

  5. j_bryon says:

    What’s interesting is the girl’s uniform is about as form fitting and/or flattering on her as the uniforms on most of the women (Troi, etc.) on Next Generation or any other series.

  6. Spoo says:

    Really, I thought it was a tiny bit awkward because while Dad and the kids are way into it, Mom’s expression says “Please forgive me!” to all the non-Trek relatives they gave this to. Funny stuff!

  7. Rstev says:

    which ones the extra?

  8. Zen Alexander says:

    where is my phaser when i need it

  9. Bob says:

    As funny as all of us may think this is, I guarantee you this family, their relatives, and their children’s children will get ten times more laughs out of this. I think it’s a demonstration of a family that is hitting on all cylinders. And I’m no trekkie.

  10. Suzy says:

    I wouldn’t call this awkward…it’s humorous and well composed.

  11. BOMENGL says:

    Awesome!! This would be so cool to do with our family! And we could even add ‘Spot’…

  12. Lec, do-do-do-Carter! says:

    My wife and I don’t have a picture like that but we do have an episode of the original Star Trek series with me as the captain and she as the Vulcan science officer, complete with the pointed ears! Thirty years ago at Universal Studios Orlando, we paid $25 to have us dubbed into a special episode. We had the real wardrobe and speaking parts. It was and is hilarious, priceless, one of a kind. We co-starred along with the entire crew of the Enterprize, awesome!

  13. Tess says:

    Trekkers forever….

  14. Steve says:

    AWESOME pic – but shouldn’t the dad be wearing the command uniform , not the science one?

  15. Amanda Hurlbert says:

    Wow lots of nerdy comments!

  16. Cool Pa Duke says:

    This would have been PERFECT if Dad had worn a Jordi LaForge visor!

  17. CC says:

    I LOVE this photo! Hey, I graduated from college in my original series Star Trek uniform, and had my driver’s license picture taken in my next gen uniform. It makes for good conversation when I get pulled over, or getting ID’d at bars. SO FUN!

  18. Doni says:

    I LOVE THIS, I would’ve died from joy if my family had done this when I was a kid…(this from the 27 year old mother of a 3 year old who recently scored two pairs of Vulcan ears at a yard sale LOL of course I have no idea what I’ll ever do with them…now I have an idea hehehe)

  19. zoe says:

    I don’t get it??.

  20. Trav says:

    Um this is awesome not awkward. Very awesome. I wish my family was this awesome.

  21. dallas says:

    A family that phasers together, stays together

  22. Candice says:

    Those are ST:TNG uniforms – the women have Counselor Troi’s dress. This is the family portrait of my dreams!! Beautiful!

  23. Mary says:

    Best. Picture. Ever.

  24. Julian says:

    Mr. Zulu, set phasers to tickle!

  25. Libbie says:

    Inspiring! I feel better about life . . .

  26. Amber says:

    Ok..the mom looks JUST like that doctor that took over for Crusher when she left the Enterprise for a while… Doctor Pulaski…weird yet the coolest thing ever!

    • Lee says:

      I thought so too, so I was actually scanning all the comments to see if anyone else felt the same. On the one hand, I’m a little sad I had to go back this far to find it, on the other, I’m pleased to know that I’m not the biggest nerd on this site.

  27. ashlayy says:

    dude this is hilariousss nd wayy epicc.

  28. Neil says:

    I know the man in the front. That is Keith

  29. Shannon says:

    Holy CRAP, I know them!!!! The guy on the ground went to high school with me!

  30. BioHzrd says:

    I’m jealous that I don’t have my own outfit and communicator to wear. Best family photo EVER!

  31. chris says:

    this may be one of the most classic photographs on the planet! usually in a situation like this the kids would be dragged into it but it honestly looks like they are as happy to be doing this as their proud pappa is.

  32. John says:

    Almost as cool as TOS uniforms. Just saying. 😉

    What’s cool is that they’re either all into Trek, which is, of course, awesome, or they’re all humouring dear old dad, which is also very cool.

  33. Monica says:

    this photo has inspired me to make Star Trek costumes for my entire family, our christmas card this year is going to rock.

  34. Arcanum says:

    Dad is no dummy… he’s not wearing a Comm Badge. He won’t have to listen to the kids’ “Beam me up” or “Are we there yet?”

  35. Kiki says:

    Anyone else thinking “the one in the red always dies?” o.O

  36. Jill says:

    Pure awesomeness!

  37. harrison says:

    AWESOME!!! 😀

  38. Darktower says:

    Can’t wait till the daughter is old enough to vote! She’s the only one that I “rooted” for haha.

  39. Rose Crooks says:

    I have never dressed as a Trek character, but this is a great picture. I love the show, grew up watching it. I hope the Trekkie has been passed down succeeding generations.

    • Pikkewyn says:

      Since this was probably taken in the 80s, the kids may have spawned their own “Next Generation” by now (yeah, that was a groaner). It would be really cool if this “original cast” got together and posed in reboot/alternate reality costumes (if you saw the movie, you’ll know what I’m talking about) and posted it here! Dad probably looks a lot like Spock Prime by now! 😀

  40. Jim says:

    Wow… two engineers, a doctor, and oh..sorry for the loss of your one son (red shirt of doom) on what ever planet he beamed down to and was immediately destroyed.

    • Lisa says:

      This is the best comment! As soon as I saw in the new movie how 3 people would be going to the plant I knew the one in red wouldn’t be coming back.

    • Ina says:

      actually at this stage of starfleet uniforms, red is for command and gold is for security and engineering ^_^
      but that was funny anyway :p

      • Laura says:

        Thanks, Ina, that’s exactly what I was going to post. The “red-shirt-guy-always-dies” thing is SOOOO “Original Series.” 😉 (Yes, I am a nerd, clearly.)

    • Beckie says:

      Yeah, i was going to say something like, “Ouch. We know who ISN’T the favored son!”

  41. chris says:

    I want to be a part of this family too! Weird we all feel the same way. I wonder if it was as great as we assume it to be.

  42. Stephanie says:

    Dad is so proud!

  43. D-money says:

    I’m so jelly right now….

  44. erika says:

    Greatest and funniest pic. I wonder if after all of these years are they still Trekkies? Have the kids since married and raise their children to also be Trekkies? I certainly hope so.

  45. pepsibookcat says:

    I LOVE this picture!!! I want to marry into this family!!!

  46. Elizabeth says:

    Basically, this is the best thing I’ve ever seen.

    I’m going to go one step further and wear my Starfleet uniform WITH Vulcan ears for this year’s holiday card. I’ll have to get my husband to wear command gold.

  47. wsymes says:

    why isn’t Dad wearing his pointy ears?

  48. John says:

    A family that “Treks” together, stays together!

  49. Meagan says:


  50. Marc says:

    Most kick-ass family photo EVER.

    • peek-a-boo says:


    • Chris says:

      Tragically, the boy in the red shirt died shortly after the photo session….

      • rlt says:

        I have been looking at photos and reading comments for at least an hour, (yes at the moment i do have too much time on my hands), but this is the first comment I wanted to comment on. OMG you had me snort laughing!!! Too damn funny!!! I love me a good smart ass =)
