If you were going to make a nativity scene out of Star Trek figures...

Which would you use?


We'll need:

Joseph
Mary
Baby Jesus
Three (3) Wise Men
A Shepard
A donkey
A cow
A camel
a lamb or two
an Angel
?


I guess this should be set on the bridge but I'm open to suggestions.

I would say


Harry Kim as Joseph, because only Kim would be married to a virgin that had a kid
Mary would be Troi
Baby Jesus=is there a figure of the little guy from the Corbomit Manuver?
3 Wise Men Spock, Tuvock, and T'Pol
Shepard Scotty (because I like Scotty)
I would have the Horta as the cow, Spot can play the donkey and tribbles as the sheep.
And the Angel would be Uhura. (so I can look up her dress)

I so like this answer better than mine. And I should mention that at various shows and conventions, I've met the actors who played Spock, Sulu, Chekov, and Spot. The actor who played Spot was named Monster. He jumped through some hoops for us.

Feel free to mix and match or to use one particular cast/franchise.


I forgot a camel. That blonde fighter from The Gamesters of Triskellion would make a good Bactrian Camel.

Kirk and Chapel as Joseph & Mary. (Come on! Their names both mean "church.")

Please oh please, can you incorporate this somehow? It's also from a movie with "Star" in the title.

PLEEEEEEAAAAASE???????? Or I'll keep making this whiny noise?!?!?!?

On second thought, I guess that would be too interdenominational.

Now that we've veered off topic, I'm safe to mention the all R2-D2 nativity I did for the Christmas cards a few years back.
