Ruth and Stephen: I LOVED "Quark"!  It didn't last very long...not even a full season...but it was cleverly, wickedly funny.  I think that was about the time that the average couch potato had to have everything spelled out for him/her in capital letters.  They just didn't get subtle humor.

Same thing happened at about the same time to a comedy about Robin Hood, I think.  "When Things Were Rotten"  That was  produced by Mel Brooks.

Both Mel Brooks and Buck Henry were creators/writers on "Get Smart."

Ruth that Klingon half pecan LOL is really funny.

Last I looked, that brand of soap is still around today. I've seen it in the store as "Kirk's Castile Soap." No extraterrestrial claims, but it is supposed to be a very pure, basic soap without weird additives.

Ruth, that long ago series you're thinking of was called "Quark," created by Buck Henry and starring Richard Benjamin. Very funny.

No date on that ad, Bill. I was curious.

I liked the part about the plants seducing his wife, sk8eycat! It reminds me of my favorite episode of a long ago short lived series about an intergalactic garbage scow, where the sentient plant had conjugal relations with a female character.

I found this on Wkipedia. I wonder in Gene Roddenberry knew of this product.

A little filk music, just for the hell of it:


When we pulled into Argo Port in need of R & R
The crew set out investigating every joint and bar
We had high expectations of their hospitality
But found too late it wasn't geared for spacers such as we

Chorus: And we're banned from Argo every one
Banned from Argo just for having a little fun
We spent a jolly shoreleave there for just three days or four
But Argo doesn't want us anymore

Our captain's tastes were simple but his methods were complex
We found him with five partners each of a different world and sex
The shorepolice were on the way -- we had no second chance
We beamed him up in the nick of time in the remnants of his pants


Our engineer would yield to none in putting down the brew
He outdrank seven space marines and a demolition crew
The navigator didn't win but he outdrank almost all
And now they've got a shuttlecraft on the roof of city hall


Our proper cool first officer was drugged with something green
And hauled into an alley where he suffered things obscene
He sobered up in sickbay and he's none the worse for wear
Except he somehow taught the bridge computer how to swear


The head nurse disappeared a while in the major dope bazaar
Buying an odd green potion guaranteed to cause pon farr
She came home with no uniform and an oddly cheerful heart
And a painful way of walking with her feet a yard apart

Our lady of communications won a ship-wide bet
By getting into the planet's main communications net
Now every time someone calls up on an Argo telescreen
The flesh is there but the clothes they wear are nowhere to be seen


Our doctor loves humanity; his private life is quiet
The shorepolice arrested him for inciting whores to riot
We found him in the city jail, locked on and beamed him free
Intact except for hickeys and six kinds of VD

Our helmsman loves exotic plants and the plants all love him too
He took some down on leave with him and he wondered what they'd do
The planetary governor called and swore upon his life
That a gang of plants entwined his house and then seduced his wife

A gang of Klingons landed and nobody seemed to care
They stomped into the nearest bar to announce that they were there
Half our crew was busy therein and invited them to play
But the Klingons only looked at us and turned and ran away


Our crew is Starfleet's finest and our record is our pride
And when we play we tend to leave a trail a mile wide
We're sorry 'bout the wreckage and the riots and the fuss
At least we're sure that planet won't be quick forgetting us

And we're banned from Argo every one
Banned from Argo just for having a little fun
We spent a jolly shoreleave there for just three days or four
But Argo doesn't want us anymore

(Wonder why')

Heading to Mars on an 'impulse' could be a reality in the near future. Learn more here

Impulse Drive. Star Trek cool!
