While there were plenty of humorous moments on the popular series and films that followed, these memes add a new twist of funny. Here are 20 “Star Trek” memes that you’ve got to check out.
ORVILLE V. DISCOVERY
Check out Seth McFarlane’s satire of The Orville. The original series, according to many current fans has been improved upon and it appeals to a larger segment of the population. If you don’t believe it, this meme may change your mind.
MEANWHILE AT CBS…

This is perhaps one of the better pics of James T. Kirk and the look on his face is priceless. He became a pop culture icon. It was this role that skyrocketed the great William Shatner to super stardom.
ELEVEN OF NINE
This is one of the funniest memes yet. If you’re a dual fan of “Stranger Things” and the character Eleven, then you’ll get the innuendo and the connection between Eleven and Seven of Nine. Think about the similarities in their childhoods and their early life experiences.
KEEPING UP WITH THE CARDASSIANS

Hey, we’ve got to remember the significant contributions that Kate Mulgrew made to the presence of female leadership in film, and in outer space for that matter. There is little denying that she changed the dynamics with her mere presence on the series.

This meme shows us how far we’ve come in cinematography and creativity. Is this really meant to pass for an alien? It’s more like a cute little dog that had a few things glued to its head. C’mon, they could have at least made it seem more realistic.
WARP VS. LIGHT
Would you rather travel at Warp speed or at Light speed? She gives up on the age old question. It’s tough when the captain of the star ship can’t make up her mind about it.
Why in the universe would the high ups all gather for a dangerous mission on an alien planet? It makes you wonder who was running the ship while the commander of the ship was busy risking his life in every episode.

How does Data manage to accomplish so much with just the push of three buttons? Yep, this is one of the most scientifically advanced series on the planet and they can prove it by making magic with just the push of a few buttons. We don’t think you can compare this to real science though.
Data and Geordi La Forge are quite the pair on “The Next Generation.” As Data investigates humanness, along with the help of his new friend La Forge, the two are easily compared to Sherlock Holmes and his associate Watson in this hilarious meme.
Leonard Nimoy’s character, Mr. Spock was known for his hard core use of logic and denial of any human emotions. Even though he was half Vulcan and half human, he avoided any revelation of his humanness. That fact alone makes this meme a real side splitter.
