I saw your "Top 10 Commercial Endorsements" in rec.arts.startrek.misc,
and wondered if you would post for me the following "Top 10" list
(I don't have posting access).  Thanks!!!
TOP TEN WORRIES OF WORF (continued)
10. Someone will discover that he really CAN'T read.
9.  His secret computer disk of nude Klingon female gifs will be found.
8.  One of his superiors will actually listen to his security advice
    and it will turn out to be useless.
7.  On her next visit Lwaxana Troi will get the hots for him.
6.  The Klingon/Human treaty will break down and he will have to rejoin
    the Klingon fleet and serve with REAL warriors.
5.  Klingon opera will become the latest human musical fad.
4.  Because of his successful delivery of Keiko's baby Dr. Crusher will
    make him the ship's midwife.
3.  When he dies he will have to serve with the Pink Fleet instead of
    the Black Fleet.
2.  Riker will get the hots for a Klingon woman and ask him for
    advice on technique.
And now, the NUMBER ONE worry of Lt. Worf:
1.  Alexander will throw up on him in public.

	As promised, this is the first Top 10 list in "Time's Arrow" month.
So from the home office in Arbutus Mayrland, here is:
TOP 10 REJECTED PPLOT RESOLUTIONS FOR "TIME'S ARROW"
10.  Commander Sela appears and says this has all been a Romulain plot to
     get back at Data and Picard.  Given Sela'a track record, Data and Picard
     escape with the help of Samuel Clemons.
9.  Guinan finds out who the [bad] aliens are and suggests they try the Borg
8.  Thanks to a hidden message in a Sam Clemons essay, Kirk, Spock, et al 
    choose 1895 as the time to get whales and gather up the away team.  Then
    at Picard's insistence, are given passage on the U.S.S. Bozeman.
7.  Somehow, Montgomery Scott gets involved and beams the away team through
    time. A 900 number is set up so fans can vote for the young or old Scott
6.  Picard finds a young inventor who has made a time machine--Tim Esarrow
5.  Starfleet investigates when it realizes that the hippie movement of the
    late 1960s can be attributed to decaying positron emitter under Height-
    Ashbury
4.  Kirk, Spock, and McCoy see the Starfleet Logo in a Sam Clemons book while
    they are in 1930s New Jersey.  They use the rock thing in "City on the Edge
    or Forever" to go back to 1895 and get them.
3.  Two words:  Wesley Crusher
2.  One letter:  Q
and the numbver one reject plot resolution for Time's Arrow
1.  Picard wakes up and discovers everything since "Darmok" was only a dream

Description: Top ten reasons why they dont use the restroom Part V
Hello everyone, it has been a while but...
              I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 Top Ten Reasons Why They Dont Use the Restroom Part V.
***********************************************************
10. Too many people kept falling out of the shuttle bay.
 9. Data still cant figure out what that protrusion is for.
 8. The women aboard still have this feeling that Riker 
    is nearbye everytime they have to go.(See Part II).
 7. After all of that prune juice I still dont see how
    Worf can hold it all these years (See Part I).
 6. Geordi tried, but going out the window at warp speed is not
    a good idea.
 5. How do you think Guinan makes that Omnicron Beta Sunsplash drink.
 4. Lt. Barclay really does it in the holodeck.
 3. Everytime they(the red shirts) would ask Kirk, he would take them 
    down to the surface. And they would go(in their pants) before they 
    got killed by the monster.
 2. Now we know why Kirk is always tense in the dramatic scenes.
And the number 1 reason why they dont use the restroom*********
 1. Everyone is collectively saving it, to convert it into a hairpiece 
    for Picard.
Anthony

Description: Yet Another Top Ten List...
As we approach the sixth season of ST:TNG, original, unused script ideas
(as well as long forgotten ones that might be "new" again) are getting
harder to come by.  As a service to those at Paramount who just might 
peek at r.a.s.* for ideas, as well as an attempt to alleviate an otherwise
boring day in my office, I am only too happy to submit yet another
"top ten" list.
Thus:
Top Ten new / unused plot lines for upcoming sixth season episodes of ST:TNG:
10.) Season opener: Picard and crew chase after Data now riding horseback
     through Sleepy Hollow.
 9.) Wesley visits the Enterprise from the Academy: Since his Colbert-star
     fiasco he "can't get dates".
 8.) Food replicators malfunction - the only working pattern is for "spam"
     (Incidents of cannibalism break out throughout the ship).
 7.) Alexander follows Worf around the ship with a pot, banging him on the
     head yelling, "Not the mama!  Not the mama!".
 6.) Riker put on trial for violating the Prime Directive when it is learned
     he taught the J'nai to play "strip poker". 
 5.) The Borg invade Starfleet's Central Information Net.  Data divises a
     plan to announce that a public XXX ftp site is up at borg.starfleet.hq:
     the Borg are brought to a halt in minutes.
 4.) Troi's mother visits the Enterprise.  Complains that there isn't
     a good nurse to be found.
 3.) A freak wormhole blasts Montgomery Scott to the 24th century, and
     robs Geordi's prosthetic vision.  Scotty later restores Geordi's
     vision when he realizes he put on a barette by mistake.
 2.) Alexander is made an acting ensign.
 1.) Tribbles!

 8. Wouldn't mind "doing" Hillary.

    crew members have been referring to Riker as "quick Willie" if ya know 
    what I mean.)

 5. Riker never went to Vietnam.
 4. Thinks of himself as part of "cultural elite."
 3. Troi likes Clinton -- 'nuff said.
 2. Riker identifies with Democratic Jackass.
 1. Both Riker and Clinton can't play music worth a damn.
Well, to be fair, here's half a top ten list for that

4. Riker will never shave his beard off.
3. Barclay swears that Perot's got "Transporter anxiety."
2. Data says "Perot?  Ah -- demagogue, athoritarian, little Napoleon, ..."
1. Klingons do NOT vote for third party candidates!!!

Ewww!  Speaking of Q, this episode reminded me of James Bond's
champagne in "The Man With the Golden Gun" -- Foo Yuk!  Really.  This
was just a bad ripoff of "Bewitched" without the laugh track.  Q had
some good lines though!!
But let's leave the reviews to the experts!
From the stressed, midterm-bound, maybe-a-TA-no-longer office in Los
Angeles, California ....

Top Ten Pranks at Q University

10. Melting Professors!
 9. Getting the answers to the final exam *before* the test is even written!
 8. Changing the gravitational constant of the universe during
    football games.
 7. Rewriting history during lecture, confusing the professor to no end.
 6. Disassembling universes and rebuilding them in friends' dorm rooms.
 5. Creating partial vacuums in people's underwear.
 4. Going to the prom *as* your date.
 3. "Inside-Out Day" -- not your clothes, your body!
 2. Interdimensional panty raids.
 1. Replacing the fine coffee they usually serve with dilithium crystals!

Wish me luck on my midterms!
"Rascals" definitely has possibilities!!

Description: Rerun Week Top Ten!! (New & Spoiler free)

Guaranteed Spoiler Free!!  Happy Turkey Day!

Since it's a rerun week I have to (*gasp*) come up with an original
topic.  Anyway, while at my grandmother's house I picked up an old
copy of "Moment Magazine" (a favorite of Jewish grandmothers
everywhere) that had an article entitled "Is Star Trek Jewish?"
Among other revelations, it claimed that Worf's adoptive parents were
originally supposed to be Orthodox Jews, but was changed because it
made Worf appear too "wimpy."  He was given Russian parents instead,
evidently because they are more macho, I guess.
Anyway, in light of this, I present (from the office in Los Angeles,
of course) ....

Top Ten Changes If Worf Were Jewish
-----------------------------------
10. Mother's constant reminders that "you could shoot your eyes out
    with one of those things" explain why Worf is a lousy shot.
 9. Knows he could be second-in-command instead of that WASP Riker if
    Star Fleet didn't have secret quota system.
 8. Worf's appearance demonstrates stereotype of Jews having large
    foreheads and bumpy "horns" on heads.
 7. Only Klingon that won't eat Gach because live worm-like things aren't
    kosher.
 6. Worf's full name is "Worf Ben-Mogg."
 5. Worf wasn't in the first few episodes of this season as they
    coincided with the High Holidays.
 4. Worf lives by his personal credo -- "I am a honorable Klingon
    warrior who just happens to identify with Woody Allen's characters!"
 3. And you thought Deanna's mother was overbearing!
 2. "Ethics" episode would have contained the lines: "Fine, don't kill
    me.  I'll just lie here and suffer.  Oy!  I'm suffering!  Am I
    suffering enough for you yet?  I'm in pain.  Are you satisfied? (etc.)"
 1. What kind of name is "Alexander" for a nice Jewish boy?

Description: The Top 10 Advantages of Riker's Beard
10.  Definitive removal of resemblance to James T. Kirk (except
     perhaps in the paunch)
 9.  Useful for hiding double chin which normally accompanies
     paunch
 8.  Proof positive that he has more hair than Picard
 7.  Great for catching leftover qagh (Klingon live spaghetti
     worms) and saving for later snack
 6.  Bristly feel of beard helps repel Lwuxana Troi
 5.  Easier to blend into Klingon environment when need arises
 4.  If he didn't have one he'd have to play strip poker with Dr.
     Crusher, which would expose paunch
 3.  Hides glass chin which kept getting punched out during the
     first season
 2.  Saves money on shaving cream
And the number 1 advantage of Riker's beard:
 1.  It keeps the directors so distracted, they don't muck about
     with his lines

list with a Christmas theme, so from the Home Office in Arbutus Maryland, we 
bring you:
TOP 10 REJECTED HALLMARK ORNAMENTS
10.  Ferengi Ship, plays the message "Merry Christmas Human, I didn't pay 
     retail for my presents, do I look stupid!"
9.  'Time's Arrow' Data's Head.  Does nothing, but the eyes light up
8.  U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-C.  Press a button and it appears on your tree
    22 years in the future  
7.  U.S.S. Bozeman, playes the message "Hey, is that a ship in front of us, try 
    to dodge it!  Hey, is that a ship in front of us?..."
6.  Borg ship, plays the message "Your life as you know it is now over, 
    resistance is futile, Happy Holidays"

    with gifts, they celebrate with pain sticks"
4.  From TOS, Nomad.  It plays "I am Nomad, I am perfect, Happy Holidays"

Description: Another Rerun Week Top Ten!!
Hey!  It's another rerun episode!  I really don't mind because I'm in
the middle of finals.  This way I have an excuse to continue studying.
Of course, this means I have to think up an original idea again.  
Fortunately it was easier this time because someone started a thread 
entitled "Is Star Fleet Communist?"  This, naturally, is a good topic!
So, from Stressville, USA!

Top Ten Signs That Star Fleet is Communist
------------------------------------------
10. The guys in charge wear Red.
 9. The endearing way the crew says "Comrade Jean Luc Picard."
 8. The computer always knows the whereabouts of each crew member.
 7. Heck, Worf's Russian!
 6. Those five-year missions sound an awful lot like Lenin's Five Year Plans.
 5. Whenever a child shows any talent, they ship him off to a special academy.
 4. Almost all male crew members wear commie pinko beards.
 3. Star Fleet claims to never interfere with local situations --
    yeah, right!
 2. Who else but commies would want a crew member who could read thoughts?
 1. Capitalist Ferengi are EVIL!
------
Top Ten list #12!
It's funnier than Saturday Night Live's last skit of the show -- guaranteed!
To get a copy of the complete collection, send mail to
jzarin@jade.tufts.edu (we've moved!) with "gimmie" as the subject.
The "Automatic Top Ten List Delivery System (tm)" will mail them to you.
Please use the automatic system.  Don't send me regular email asking

first place!  Of course, you're welcome to mail me praise & compliments!

	Well, with everyone talking about "Chain of Command" I thought I 
would throw my hat in the ring.  So from the home office in Arbutus 
Maryland, we bring you:
TOP 10 EDITED LINES FROM 'CHAIN OF COMMAND'
10.  Riker:  "So Admiral, any more surprises?"
     Vice Admiral:  "Along with Jelico, we are replacing Dr. Crusher with
                     Dr. Kate Pulaski"
     (outside shot of Enterprise and Riker screaming "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH")
9.  Jelico: "If we use my plans and the crew supports me, we can make this 
             the most efficient starship in the Federation"
    Riker:  "My God, its H. Ross Perot"
8.  LaForge:  "But Captain Jelico, that would mean cutting power to the 
               astrophysics stations, sceince labs, and classrooms"
    Jelico:   "Will it shut down any essential systems?"
    LaForge:  "Ten Forward and the Holodecks will be unaffected"
    Jelico:   "So whats the problem?  Do it"
7.  Riker:  "Sir, We have some problems converting to 4 workshifts"
    Jelico:  "Ask me if I care"
    Riker:  "Captian Jelico, do you care?"
    Jelico:  "Hell no.  Now get me 4 shifts"
6.  Jelico:  "Damn Troi, your butt's the size of a shuttlecraft!  Get a
              real Starfleet uniform on"
5.  Ferengi:  "Oh!  You give good ear human!"
4.  Worf:  "I can't beleive this"
    Picard:  "That the Cardassians have hidden a base here?"
    Worf:  "No, that an old man, a woman and a Klingon can wander around
            these caves talking in normal tones and not get caught"
3.  Picard:  "Beverly, are you alright?"
    Crusher:  "I just had a bunch of rocks fall on me, what do you think?"
    Worf:  "That you really got stoned?"
2.  Cardassian:  (Into a com panel) "Send the forllowing message to Commander
                 Sela of the Romulain Empire:  'Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!  I got
                 Picard--you owe me twenty bucks'"
And the number one sequence cut from "Chain of Command"
1.  Borg:  "I am Hugh, of Borg.  Release Locutus or you will be destroyed"
