A Newfie on Trek
I think that Star Trek should have a Newfie.
Jarge steps off the turbo lift and enters the bridge for the first time. He is in oil skins and rubber boots.
Jarge: 'ows ya gettin on skipper?
Jarge notices the lovely black lady. He likes that she's exotic
Jarge: what are ya at me luv? Likes it on the phone do ya?
He slicks back back his wet looking hair and at that moment he sees the strange looking alien at a computer console.
Jarge: 'oly lard jumpin dien Jesus. Look at da (h)ears on buddy!

Make sure it's Screech. Yes

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: A Newfie on Trek
I had to Google Newfie.
Okay, concerning Canadians:
First of all, Captain Janeway was originally cast to be Geneviève Bujold, a Quebecian.
William Shatner himself is from Montreal.
James Doohan was from Vancouver.

I hereby insist to be named TTA's official Leading Star Trek expert.

Actually Newfies are specifically from Newfoundland, a part of a province in Canada called Newfoundland and Labrador.
I'm well aware that Shatner and Doohan are Canadian but they are not Newfies.
And if the crowd in Saskatchewan find this comparison between Canadians and Newfies they'll probably flop out!

Oh yeah and it Quebecer or more correctly Québécois! Just saying.
And I challenge you for the title of TTAs leading Trek expert!
