You tiny little lifeforms…you precious little lifeforms…where are you?

That is a song sung (by Data) in a recent Star Trek movie, but nobody I tell believes me when I say that it is ALSO sung by Cap’n Kirk in an original series episode. has anyone here seen the episode I am talking about?

They don’t believe you because it never happened. Trust me.

I remember that! But I can’t remember if it was an episode or a movie. Hmmm . . . maybe the episode where Data put in his emotion chip and started making really bad jokes (“You might say I have a magnetic personality!”).

“I think he said ‘Blessed are the cheesemakers.’”


He knows that.

He’s talking about Captain Kirk singing it in the original Star Trek.

You were supposed to tell him it never happened.

According to the Pope, a woman can be a saint, but not a priest.

I’ve seen every episode of the original Star Trek a few dozen times… I never saw the aforementioned song by Kirk…

And its not like anyone would dream of having Shatner sing, say, Beatles tunes…

Joey, you’re right.

DrF, if you call that singing, you are hopelessly tone-deaf.

According to the Pope, a woman can be a saint, but not a priest.

The song “Lifeforms” wasn’t in a TNG episode, it was in the movie Star Trek: Generations.

Now, someone kick me for knowing that.

It couldn’t have been on that terrible album Shatner released, could it?


No one has ever had the courage to play that album.

I don’t think that song was on the William Shatner album. In any event, it’s not listed on this album:
