When Worf Met Webster

Webster was a family sitcom in the 1980s. It was sentimental fluff, starring tiny precocious actor Emmanuel Lewis, with a seemingly nonstop laugh track. So it was a surprise to hear that an episode of Webster featured an appearance by Lt. Worf of Star Trek: The Next Generation. In the episode titled “Webtrek,” Webster is magically transported to the 24th century, to the bridge of the Enterprise where Worf is on duty.

Worf is standing at his usual station, and he calls Webster an “intruder” and asks in a surprisingly laidback tone how he got aboard the ship. Webster blames it on his joystick, and another Starfleet extra takes it away for repair.

Worf recognizes Webster as an “Earthling”, but finds his “style of dress” peculiar. Webster insists that this is what all the cool kids will be wearing in 1990, and Worf tells him, “That was more than 300 years ago. You’re in the 24th Century!”

Over at a side console, another Starfleet officer -- regular stand-in and extra Lorine Mendell -- pulls up an animated scan of Webster rotating around like he’s the Genesis Device, and soon declares him to be “unarmed.” Webster thinks the bridge of the Enterprise is “cool”, and Worf replies, “The temperature on the Enterprise never varies!” Cue laugh track.

The crossover was the final episode of the Webster series, featuring mostly clips from previous episodes as Webster explains to Worf what his life back in 1989 was like. Trekcore takes a look at the strange episode from the viewpoint of a Star Trek fan. Sadly, “Webtrek” is not one of the episodes of Webster available on the ‘net.  -via Fashion It So
