X is for Xenophobic

Xenophobia = an unreasonable fear of foreigners or strangers or of that which is foreign or strange.  One of the most common forms of xenophobia is aliens.


 I can definitely say that I'm NOT xenophobic.  I'd love to meet:

The Ferengi (TNG) - Just hold onto your purse/bars of latinum
Worf (TNG) the Klingon - awesome
Naomi Wildman (Voyager)  Adorable alien child

Xindi (Enterprise) nah - they are pretty creepy

Shran (Enterprise) the Andorian - very tough guy
Spock (Lenard Nimoy) in his awesome t-shirt, yes!

I grew up on Star Trek.  What can I say? :)

Although I probably wouldn't want to meet the Borg (Voyager) - don't wanna be assimilated
Would you meet an alien?


  1. I also grew up on Star Trek, and I fantasized about being there for first contact. As a kid I was always a little odd and never fit in. I had this idea I might have been born on Earth through some sort of clerical error and I'd eventually get to see the world I was supposed to live on. I've finally come to the conclusion that, no, I do belong on Earth and that it really is as simple as me being weird. Would still love to meet an alien though.

    That's half the reason why I write science fiction. I have tons of aliens living inside my head. Forgive me if I'm sounding weird, can't really help it.

  2. Aliens!! Well as long as they are not the human devouring type--I think I'd like to meet one-- unless of course they smelled--then I might want to meet them from afar! LOLOL!

    Cheers, Jenn

  3. I would LOVE to meet an alien, especially if it looked like StarTrek's Klingon Worf or another alien hottie! Great photos. I've enjoyed your blog during this A to Z Challenge. Happy Friday!


  4. Hmmm, ET yes, the ones from Alien, not so much! Trek was on, but I was not necessarily feeling it!

  5. You forgot the best alien of all! The Doctor! Preferably the 10th<3<3<3 (I'm pretty much in love with David Tennant) Though I would happily accept meeting the 11th as well:)
