|Sev Trek: The Comic Strip|
The Number 47! For some strange reason, the number 47 keeps popping up on Star Trek shows! After a bizarre email praising 47 from Tai Shimizu and encountering the obsessive web site, "Land of Schlock: The 47s", I decided to do this week's strip on every Trekkie's favourite number.
|These comics are created from the winning entries of The Write Your Own Sev Trek Competition. The winning entry was written by Lord Fledrinnian, an homage to Douglas Adam's infamous 42. There were a number of punchlines refering to Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but this was one of the cleverest ones. Here are some of the other funniest entries...|
It's the only piece of continuity the producers can put into the show.
It's just another plot twist we recycled from The X Generation
It's part of the prime-number directive!
Why not? Everything else on this show is repeated.

The writers hope that a prime number means prime time.
For Seven's sake!

Because we're 5 cards shy of a full deck
All Sev Fleet ships are designed by Boeing.
"Set phasers on stun! The next one to say that gets shot 47 times!" (Zap!) (ZZZTTT!) (ZAP!) "OUCH!" (thud)...
Sev Note: This punchline gets points for enthusiasm.
It's easier to say than 101111 in binary!
Sev Note: I'm not sure if this punchline is that funny, but it's sheer nerdliness got it onto the Entries Page!
4 score and 7 years ago...........
It's our mission: to last for seven seasons.
4 the 7th time, the show is too cheap to even think of a new number.
42 is the meaning of life. 47 is the meaning of Sev.
Sev Note: My posting this punchline is NOT official endorsement that 47 actually is the meaning of Sev.
Ask 4 of 7
Budget cuts, we have to recycle scripts.
Because we can't afford new console displays
We have recurring plotlines. Why not recurring numbers?
Its that damn Pentium bug again!
Just to give people like Tai Shimizu a number to worship.
To drive the nitpickers mad!
Well, there's a 47% probability that Joe Menosky from Pomona College is writing our scripts.
Sev Note: Now there's someone who knows his 47ology!
The writers can't count any higher.
If I've told you once, I've told you 47 times...

I knew it was futile to try to keep my age a secret!
