Where no meat has gone before

By Phil Plait | April 23, 2010 12:14 pm

Now I know why watching Trek made my blood pressure rise.


Hey, y’know what would go well with this? Antipasto. HAHAHAHAHA!

Anyway, this one certainly looks like more of a meal than the Tiny-E. And it’s weird: the secondary hull looks like a Shuttle external tank. Life imitates art imitates life.

Tip o’ the meat grinder to BABloggee cturner301 and MyFoodLooksFunny.

    WOW , That’s the nerdiest nerd food that ever nerded the nerd industry

  2. Stanley H. Tweedle

    That Enterprise is ludicrous but so is Star Trek!

  3. Davidlpf

    Now we need some cheesy jokes.

  4. WillG

    This re-imagining of Pigs in Space is a little on the macabre side, don’t you think?

  5. I always knew flying sausages were real.
    @ Stanley H. Tweedle: What’s your point?

  6. Chip

    Now it just needs to be fried in a gentle plasma cloud.
    cheesy joke would just be tackeon

  7. timebinder

    I made one of those, but after three weeks in the fridge it started growing tribbles.

    I guess this is why so many space born critters kept trying to eat the Enterprise.

    PS. For those of Y’All who like Jon Stewart, check out his April 20th show on Comedy Central. He nailed Faux Snooze to the Wall.

    They should have done more testing before installing the Infinite Improbability Drive in the Enterprise.

  10. Utakata

    I think I just had a colesterol attack just looking at that. :(

    It’s true! Not only are the aliens made of MEAT but so are their spacecraft!

    ( h/t Terry Bisson: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/They%27re_Made_Out_of_Meat )

  12. Good one, Sarah! I’d forgotten the source of that, I’d thought it was a Monty Python sketch. I had a subscription to Omni for the whole run of the mag. I still have them in boxes in the attic over the garage.

  13. Chris

    It actually runs on a Pasto/Antipasto reaction.

  14. BJN

    Hmmmm, do I dare follow your links?

  15. Larry

    That is gonna leave a grease trail clear across the galaxy

    Now, if we could only reconfigure the main sensor array to eject a steady stream of cheeze whiz…

  18. KC

    Aye Captain! The mortadella is backing up into the warp drive!

  19. numsix

    The real reason Shatner added a few pounds from the first episode to the last… :)

    Captain our Baloney Detection Kits are reading off the charts!

    “Now I know why watching Trek made my blood pressure rise.”

    Like sausages, do you? Not that there’s anything wrong with that. :)

  23. Fire protein torpedoes!

  24. Thomas Siefert

    “Enterprise is a dish best served cold”

    “The shields are down Captain, better bring out the cling film”

  25. Torbjörn Larsson, OM

    It must be the new Constitution class NCC-1717 Reentrant, as its cook pit is on board.

    “Set phasers on well done!”

  26. Brian Too

    Best. Comments. Ever!

  27. Kimpatsu

    Ah! All the ham acting in TOS explained! (Bwa ha ha!)

  28. MadScientist

    I think it’s a load of baloney. (Well, not really but … OK, I’ll go back to my computer programming.)

  29. Gary

    It will be all out war if they ever enter the Vegan System!

  30. Radwaste

    There are better ways to travel through space and time!

  31. timebinder

    Captain, we’ve detected the approach of a cling wrap cruiser.

  32. Chip

    Needs a complimentary Klingon sandwich!

    BTW – off topic but does anyone else notice there are multiple monikers only in the BA blog – at least two of me and I suspect several of others, unless multiple writing styles by the same person or split personalities are common here. ūüėÄ

  33. Jeremy

    Is the antipasto joke really a pun on antimatter? Oy, that’s a reach, Phil.

  34. mike burkhart

  36. GuruOfChem

    Not sure I want to be around when they have to eject the warp core – could get messy…

    “It actually runs on a Pasto/Antipasto reaction.”
