Just remember, if they aren't into it, let it go.
You mean to say, if they aren't into it, let them go.
Fixed that for you.
If they don't like Kirk and Picard, Spock or Data... well... there's other, better, fish in the sea for you.
Not sure this is any help. But a while back I thought my young nephews should learn about Star Trek. They had watched very little of any sort of TV, so they were up for anything, but I wasn't sure where to start. I thought classic Trek would be too old or dated for them, but they could appreciate it later, so I decided they should start with TNG because it may be more accessible for them.
But where should they start in TNG? Yes, we could start with Encounter at Farpoint, the first episode... But that is a pretty cheesy, crappy, strange episode(s). Right? Though it does introduce Q, who is a recurring 'integral' 'villain'. As a completist, you really would have to start here. (Or with TOS.)
Or I could just jump right in and show basically the best episode (or at least best cliffhanger) of Star Trek ever, The Best of Both Worlds I & II. But would it be as good an episode if they don't know any of the characters at all, and never previously encountered the Borg. In fact, so much would be lost by showing that episode first, I decided we couldn't.
So, stay with me here-- I decided to start them with Coming of Age. Now, yes, this is a Wesley episode. And it's near the end of the first season. But Wesley is not at all insufferable in this episode-- he's actually interacting in a more or less reasonable way with his fellow candidates, and my nephews are of the age (12ish) where they could actually maybe see themselves in his place, going through those tests. And while I skipped over a lot of (bad) first season episodes to get to that one, I thought I shouldn't skip the entire first season. That wouldn't be right! So this is a compromise. But most of all, the episode actually does a fairly good job of introducing the characters, through Remmick's interviews/interrogations, and we see Picard have to make a big choice; to become Commandant of Star Fleet Academy, or remain Captain of the Enterprise. (His decision??!? I won't spoil it for you!)
Its weakness (apart from being a first season episode) is that there are no big space battles or major alien encounters. But some smaller scale alien and ship things happen. And this episode is actually a great setup for one of the darkest (though sometimes still cheesy) suspenseful/ominous (though never paying off later) episodes of TNG, Conspiracy.
But before you go there, you can jump back to Datalore (to lead into future Lore episodes), if you like. Also Heart of Glory (for Klingon/Worf episodes), and Neutral Zone (actually, some say, a lead in to the Borg, but also, more obviously, The Romulans). Perhaps even Naked Now, Skin of Evil, and Encounter at Farpoint, if you're brave. But then follow this on in Season 2 with, at the very least, Q Who, The Measure of a Man, and a Matter of Honor. (And these all will effectively have formed mini-arcs.) Then you can watch (almost) everything from seasons 3, 4, and 5 without too much worry. And they will mean more when you watch them.
Anyway, long story short--my plan is somewhat higher risk, but higher return: if your girlfriend is anything like my 12-year-old nephews (huh??) get her to agree to give the show a proper chance by watching several episodes, then set her up with some of the more solid, early episodes, which you may both laugh at a bit but then she will be properly and emotionally invested when OMG Picard is Locutus! in BoBW, or LOOK Tasha is back??? in YE, or, oh no--IS SPOT GONNA BE OKAY???
Purchase at least a half dozen children's full body Halloween costumes (ie spiderman, darth vader, princess, tigger, ladybug, robot, etc).
Set a small table on your front step, porch, or main sidewalk.
On table, place bowl of candy, and large visible sign reading "CANDY"
Take costumes above, stuff them realistically with pillows/towels/other clothing, lay them strategically on ground around table, and douse area with lots of (fake?) blood.
Hide around corner with large (fake?) axe.
You can figure out the rest.
Atlas companies have used copyright traps before.. Just add a couple fake towns on your map, and if you find another company selling a map with those towns, you know you can sue them for copying your map.
Could a company add a fake time zone to a list of time zones, name it something funny (creative), and claim copyright infringement when it appears in a database? Since really, it's not a fact at all, the made up entry was... art?
Personally, I keep my primary backup in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying 'Beware of the Leopard.'
This works quite well.
However, in the event of the destruction of the Earth, this solution seems somewhat.. inadequate. So I believe you would be well served to set up an auxiliary backup system on an interplanetary satellite, or on the moon, and probably also on another not-too-conspicuous planet within our solar system, and just to be safe, one more in another solar system in this (or another) galaxy. (I recommend Ursa Minor Beta.) You don't want a localized catastrophe to eliminate all your files and backups in one fell swoop.
And every few days just swing by the backup sites to be sure there hasn't been any data degradation.
that AEONITY.COM link is NSFW dammit
Unprecedented? Isn't this pretty well the way we discover all extra-solar planets? Through star wobble? Unless we're lucky enough to line up for a full on occlusion?
I mean, I guess in this case it's "planet wobble". But FTFA: "Interestingly, planets in our solar system have been detected through a similar method."
So uh... unprecedented?
So the spleen is the seat of emotions after all?
Then forget the Zoloft, gimme my strawberry-banana yogursicle.
