HALP! Evil Kirk has taken Timmy hostage!

When we came into the office yesterday, evil Captain Kirk and his rag tag band of Tribbles had taken over the new arcade claw machine--and taken Timmy hostage inside! Witness ye the horror:

OH  NOES IT'S EVIL KIRK!

The worst part? Kirk says to save Timmy, we must declare him as the best captain ever. What will Picard think?

Timmy is usually the evil genius around here, so we're not quite sure how to handle this situation. We'll post updates here as events unfold.

UPDATE, 12/4 11:00 am: Timmy's still in evil Kirk's clutches, but the STTNG crew has been holding a clandestine meeting for the last hour or so, and apparently Spock's been sited near the claw machine. What could be afoot!?

UPDATE, 12/4 3:00 pm: Captain Picard and his team swing into action! But will they take evil Kirk down!?

UPDATE 12/4 11:00pm: Timmy is saved! Here's what happened: Timmy refused to cave to Kirk's demands and call him the best captain ever (as if), and we knew Kirk wouldn't back down as long as he was transfixed by his reflection in the claw machine's front panel. And unfortunately we don't have any green Barbies around the office. (Thanks for the suggestions, though!) So it all came down to Picard and his crew: Wesley, Data, Geordi, and a rogue band of facehuggers.

And Picard didn't even demand that Timmy call him the best captain ever. This may, in fact, make him the best captain by default. We'll let you decide.

meaningless icon! This is tribble-le to solve. Get yourselves 3 Barbies in bikinis. When Kirk sees them he'll forget all about his demands and Timmy. While Kirk is wooing the babes you slip Timmy out, then fry the machine, Barbies and all (the world can do with a few less Barbies).

meaningless icon! Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo timmy bit his wrist and take the phaser!

meaningless icon! I think Timmy is in on this whole thing, no way Kirk is smart enough to pull this all off on his own! I sense and evil genius monkey is up to something!

meaningless icon! Set up an EM field to disable the phaser! (Or you could just lock onto Timmy and beam him to safety, OR lock onto both and disable the phaser in mid-transport and re-materialize them separately.)

meaningless icon! It would probably work better if you spray-paint the Barbies green first.
Pamster said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! Use the crane! His ego should be big enough to grab easily with it! :P
Trekker1 said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! Agree with Pamster, green Barbies in silver foil bikinis will work just fine!
LadyC said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! Simply yell to Kirk, "Hey! You lost your rug!" while pointing at the tribbles. While Kirk is busy looking for his lost hairpiece, or stuffing his head up a tribble's bottom, energize the Claw and use it to rescue Timmy.

meaningless icon! We do not negotiate with terrorists. Send the best captain in to fix it, Captain Sisko.
Death Kitten said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! Kirk is the better captain. Just say it and Timmy is free.

meaningless icon! What will Picard think? Interesting. Anyone care what I think? Or are intelligent, authoritative women w/out social issues off your radar?

meaningless icon! KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRRRRRRK! *raises fist in the air*

meaningless icon! When Timmy goes into Pon Farr, it'll all be over. Da-dum-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-dum-DA-DAA-DA!
GeekDad Ken said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! hmm...illogical, this is clearly a no-win situation, and Kirk refuses to admit there are no-win situations...... send in the green Barbies with foil bikinis
mransr said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! UPDATE: Timmy is still in evil Kirk's clutches, but there's some talk amongst the STTNG crew! We'll let you know what happens. (ALSO: Those of you who blame Timmy for this should be ashamed! Kirk lured him in with his greatest weakness--his insatiable hunger for caffeinated bananas!)

meaningless icon! Green chicks are a great distraction for Kirk. So is Yeoman Rand. Please monitor and send pics. 0.o
Swader said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! The green Barbies in foil bikinis might work, but what if it doesn't? Shouldn't we send in an army of Kirk hungry Zombies, and while Kirk is busy trying to blast them with the phaser, rescue Timmy with the claw.
Psychogeek said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! Maybe Kirk just wants to live with common people? Maybe he wants to do whatever common people do? Maybe he wants to sleep with common people? He just wants to sleep with common people, like you??
Lady Lovelylocks said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! @Lady Lovelylocks: But still, he'd never get it right. When he's lying in bed at night, watching roaches climb the wall, if he called his dad he could stop it all!
CarrieGouldin said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! Easy answer. Just bring in Scotty and get him to explain to Kirk that you, as non-Federation civilians simply "Dinnaeh have tha powarrrrr!".
Jofa said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! Call in Scotty! He an explain to Kirk that as non-Federation civilians you simply "Dinnaeh have the powerrrrr" to declare him the best captain, or jump to Warp 3
Jofa said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! The solution is simple. Just slip a few grains of rice into the claw machine while Kirk isn't looking. In a few hours there will be so many tribbles in there that Kirk will have no choice but to give up or suffocate. If that doesn't work, just drop the claw on him.
LordGimmik said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! No, he'll never live like common people, he'll never do what common people do. He'll never fail like common people and never watch his life slide out of view... He is James Tiberius Kirk! He will dance and drink and screw!
Lady Lovelylocks said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! Stall him until the tribbles have filled the claw machine! My movie knowledge tells me that soon there will be so many that the top of the machine will pop right off without hurting anyone, and then you can sweep in quickly and arrest a newly apologetic Kirk. And the movies wouldn't lie to me, would they?
Lothcat said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! Did you get him out yet? Maybe take out Kirk using the claw...
LordGimmik said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! Please. Just remind Kirk there is Porn on the Holodeck. There is no universe in which Kirk is the "best captain ever". I can't even say that with a straight face.
StickyZebra said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! ...whereas Picard wishes he was Henry III, Janeway wears y-fronts and Sisko is just dumb.
Lady Lovelylocks said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! I think Picard just needs to figure a way to outwit Kirk. (Barbie distraction sounding like the most likely case) Either that or just send in Firefly's Mal. He'd just shoot and ask questions later. Kinda like Kirk. :o) (we come in peace. shoot to kill. shoot to kill. shoot to kill.)
ladyhgiggle said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! But grabbing him with the claw will only work if Kirk hasn't sabotaged the claw to minimum grabbing power! Go with the Green Barbies! He'll never suspect!
CornflakeJustice said this 1730 days ago.
meaningless icon! I am betting the Barbies will work, Kirk has an insatiable lust for the ladies. That or I'm betting on Worf and Data to take him down. Come to think of it, Deanna Troi could distract him while Worf and Data sneak up on him.....
LadyKiiri said this 1729 days ago.
meaningless icon! Have Deanna distract him with her Betazoid whiles while Worf and Data sneak up and grab him. He'll never see it coming.
LadyKiiri said this 1729 days ago.
meaningless icon! We should give Kirk a red shirt. That'll put him in his place.
Anaklusmos said this 1729 days ago.
meaningless icon! Send in a mirror! He'll be to busy looking at himself to try to shoot Timmy. That, or show him the new Star Trek movie. He'll be pissed. (Seriously, that movie wasn't as good as the series)
Jys072595 said this 1729 days ago.
meaningless icon! It's quite simple, really. Timmy must use his evil ninja skills to take out both Kirk and Picard! Alternatively, someone could get Kirk in a headlock with the claw.
Dark Eagle said this 1729 days ago.
meaningless icon! Timmy! Fight, Timmy, fight for your life! I promise TG will give you bananas when you escape!
IRManGuy said this 1729 days ago.
meaningless icon! umm.. seeing as Kirk IS the best captain, I don't see what the problem was to begin with!!
HesDeadJim said this 1729 days ago.
meaningless icon! Most Illogical that no one even suggested the Vulcan Nerve Pinch!
Spock Of Vulcan said this 1728 days ago.
meaningless icon! WARNING: kirks large ego may cause a singularity to form, avoid at all costs!

meaningless icon! Whew! He's saved! Yay!

meaningless icon! Picard IS the best captain!! >.<
