Star Trek: The Next Generation Easter Egg - Amusing Starfleet Signs

In Star Trek there are a lot of signs all over the ship such as on doors and lockers. Written in tiny print on these doors are some quite amusing stuff such as

"A stitch in time saves nine."
"In space, nobody can hear you scream"
"Warning! Objects in mirror may be closer than they appear"
"No matter where you go, there you are" (From Buckaroo Banzai)

There are more, for a full list you can get the Star Trek Technical Manual or the Star Trek Encyclopedia. I realize this may not be considered an actual egg because they are not readable on screen.

There was a sign on one show were Capt. Picard became a little kid due to the fact the shuttle he was returning to the ship in passed through a radiation field, then they had to be beamed to the ship to save their lives. I this show they are looking in a Jefferys tube planning their escape. If you look at the sign above their heads it say "you must be this high to ride this ride". This can be confirmed if you have a VCR or the Star Trek card game.

Uhuh, "In space, nobody can hear you scream" is a tip-of-the-hat to the movie Alien.

Also, in Sickbay, there is a three later acronym next to one of the readouts called MIR. This stands for Medical Insurance Remaining.

Yes whatever, but it was Buckaroo Banzai that popularized the phrase and since the art designers on Star Trek are such fans of the show, it was a reference to Buckaroo Banzai, not Eastern philosophy.

Not only are these signs all over the "real" Enterprise, but in real life! Go to the Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas and see them there too. A perfect example of Paramounts attempt a continuity (although they screw up every once in a while)

"No matter where you go, there you are", is an Asian (I am not sure if it's from Confucius or Zen) idea. It's NOT an invention of Buckaroo Bonzai! It may have been invented there, but to say it's a result of Buckaroo Bonzai is a bit of a reach, since Asian philosophies have been so popular in recent years.

One of the behind the scenes/Making of.. videos mentioned that they put in a 'real sentence' i.e. these quotations and not just random text because, even though you can not read them the actual words on the TV the word to spaces ratio look natural.

This last comment is in err, the Star Trek CCG has many easter eggs embedded into it that are unique to the CCG art. In the episode the jeffries tube had no easter eggs in it. There are well over a dozen easter eggs in the ST:CCG, visit Decipher.com for a list!

This discussion has nothing to DO with the Star Trek CCG! You're _obsessed_ with the CCG!
