The Cartoonist and the Orions


Yes, the picture Barry mentions in this week’s special web-only strip DOES exist, lol… this is your intrepid cartoonist with Bobbi Sue Luther & Crystal Allen (Orion Women actresses on Star Trek: Enterprise) at the official mega Star Trek convention in Las Vegas a few years back, when I worked for STARTREK.COM. I felt like a mix between ELVIS and Harcourt Fenton Mudd.



Meet BARRY! Barry is Skip’s foil. He loves his sports, and he loves impressing the ladies. However, the way Barry obsesses over his sports and fantasy leagues shows awfully ironic amount of “geeky” behavior. Barry can ramble off sports standings and valuable draft picks the way Skip can ramble off the Marvel universe of superhero characters. Barry is the top-selling rep at Finch Marketing, and he’ll be the first to tell you that. He and Skip are polar opposites in so many ways, but it’s clear they share a mutual amusement with one another – actually more like an other-worldly curiosity for one another.
