How Many Lights Do You See?

“Chain Of Command Pt. 2″ is such a wonderful hour of television. Patrick Stewart just DESTROYS your preconceived notions about cheesy acting in Star Trek or in science fiction in general. He Shakespeares THE SHIT out of that final torture scene. Picard is a man physically and mentally broken, but his will triumphs in the face of unbearable pain and almost total, partial nudity. Cardassians, man. Fucking Cardassians.

If you missed the first FANEURYSM comic, it is HERE. If you missed what FANEURYSM is all about, read this excerpt from the previous blog post:

HERE COMES FANEURYSM
I’ve decided to start making a new, supplemental comic, in the vein of the old LoFi-Jinks comics, which will serve as the comic that “comic Joel” actually makes in the HEniverse. […] I’m starting off with a few comics about Star Trek: TNG to serve as the basis for the conversation in THIS HE comic.

Check out the new comic navigation beneath the comics!

You can now more easily navigate between the different kinds of comics (HEFaneurysmHE ClassicLoFiGuest ComicsPhoto Comics and Con Sketches) with the “Prev. Cat” and “Next Cat.” buttons. You can also click the archive button to be taken to a list of categories with descriptions for each.

PATREON Patrons got to see this comic as soon as it was done, and before it went live on the website. Neat!

  1. Romulans? Surely you meant to say Cardassians? Or do all non-humans just look the same to you?

    • Whoops. It was pretty late when I posted this. Got my shithead aliens mixed up.

      • The correction you made is now an accidental funny. You left one of the "Romulans"…which gives the effect of making "Romulans, man." sound like a generic exhortation, in the vein of:

        "Romulans, man. Another twelve hours of overtime this week? They gotta rein this in."

  3. Possibly because he was a classically trained Shakespearean actor?

    • I'm sure Joel knew that, even if he forgot that "the bloody Cardies" (O'Brien! DS9!) were the perpetrators in that episode.

    • Probably so. Probably the exact point I was making. Probably.

    • The Measure of a Man is Picard saying "you guys have given me a monologue and I am going to monologue the HELL out of this stage!"

  4. Best Morning ever. Thank you for that. I loved this one

  5. In Joel's defense, historically speaking, it *is* always the damn Romulans.

    We'll probably learn that the entire Cardassian race was just a genetic engineering project of the Tal Shiar to pressure the Bajorans or something…

    • For all we know, Gul Madred could've really been a disguised Tal Shiar operative

  6. As has been mentioned, it was the Cardassians, not the Romulans.

    But since no one else has mentioned it in this thread so far, seriously, how awesome was Ronny Cox in this episode?! And how come TPTB never brought Jellico back during the Dominion War?!

    I consider it a wasted opportunity.

  7. OK, Joel. I'm gonna sue you for scalded sinusus now. Put up a frikkin warning label about hot liquids and heavy machinery or something, would you?

    Also, will this be part of the regular HE RSS, or a separate feed?

    Reply
    • Its all the same feed.

  8. This needs to be a t-shirt. Preferably a red one. :)

    • I want the alt-text on a T-shirt! Or maybe we could get the comic on the front and the alt-text on the back?

      Reply
      • I'll take the last panel as a poster or shirt with the alt text below it

  9. I am thoroughly enjoying these faneurysm comics. One can never have too many TNG comics.

  10. I'd say post this sucker to TeeFury = epic win.

  11. Joel, you are my television oracle, and I love it! I've only ever watched TNG randomly in syndication, but about a month ago I decided to marathon the whole series and it was a GREAT idea! Now I actually get these jokes, and my world is enriched immeasurably! Keep it up!
