When NBC canceled Star Trek in 1969, many fans feared the starship Enterprise's five-year mission had ended prematurely. But thanks to the books, movies, comics, and all the other official tie-ins, we know Captain Kirk and his crew's adventures continued — but nowhere have those adventurers been wilder, weirder, and occasionally cuter than in their unofficial adventures, especially courtesy of fan art. Here's a small sampling of some of the insanity the Enterprise apparently got into once the cameras stopped rolling and fans grabbed their sktechpads. (FYI the awesome pic above is by Rabittooth, whose art you're going to see a lot of below.)

So basically Kirk and Sisko have the same methods when dealing with Q? Sounds about right...
