To clarify: my brain saw a couple of possibilities, one of which is "hey, look at the [possibly controversial attributes] of the typical people who are or are not drawn to play D&D"

Lobby / Accurate Star Trek (next gen) episode summaries

http://acme.com/jef/netgems/trek_episodes.html ( just a few of the funnier / most accurate for ST:TNG )


ENCOUNTER AT GUNPOINT

Picard saves a big jellyfish.

COAT OF HONOR

Yar beats up a king who gets out of line with her.  This fails to
discourage him, so she beats up his wife, who then divorces him.

DATA'S SORE

Data beats up Worf, takes over the Enterprise, and blames it all on his
brother.

11001001

Riker finds this phone number on the bathroom wall, then discovers his
blind date is a hologram.  Meanwhile, some shy robots take over the
Enterprise.

WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE PARROTS

Captain Picard invites his old girl-friend aboard, but before she can
make her move, Beverly crushes her.

THE NEUTRAL ZONE

Picard learns that fresh is better than frozen.  The Borg invade the
Federation, but forget all about it and go back home.

ELEMENTARY, DEAR DATA

The most intelligent member of the crew turns out to be a hologram.
To save his own job, Picard turns him off.

THE DOLPHIN

Wesley finds he's no Kirk when he dates a marine mammal.  Her mother
gets mad and beats up Worf.

THE ICARUS FACTOR

Worf finally has his Bar Mitzvah.

THE EMISSARY

A female Klingon shows Worf the "Kick Me" sign he's been wearing for
the past two seasons, so he asks her to marry him and become a
houseKlingon, but she chooses her career instead.

PEAK PERFORMANCE

Riker finally gets his own ship, but he blows it up, so the Enterprise has
to take him back.

THE SURVIVORS

Picard harasses a lonely old man, but leaves him alone after he finds
out he committed genocide.

THE VENGEANCE FACTOR

A hundred-year-old woman falls in love with Riker, so he blasts her to
smithereens.

THE HUNTER

A pacifist killer makes fools out of the Enterprise crew.

THE HIGH GROUND

Another contemporary story told from a contemporary point of view
with a contemporary conclusion, but with futuristic props.

DATA Q

Q is kicked out of the Q Continuum, who exile him to the Enterprise and
take away all his powers except whining.

YESTERDAY'S ENTERPRISE

In an alternate timeline, there is a TV show called "Star Trek" where the
Enterprise blasts enemy ships to bits every week, the Captain never
surrenders, there is no Counselor, and the Klingons are bad guys.  This is
one episode of that program, obtained through a black hole.  There was
a minor bit of editing, however, including changing the Captain's name
from "Kirk" to "Picard."

ALLEGIANCE

Alien's replace Picard with an imitation whose only flaw is that he isn't
so stuck-up.

THE MOST BOYS

A strange alien who collects baseball players decides Data would make
a great center fielder.

SORRY

Spock's father tuns out to be a bigger nag than Troi's mother.  Beverly
finally smacks Wesley.

TRANSFIGURATIONS

Jesus visits the Enterprise.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

The alien tanker Mega Borg returns and threatens to oil slick the entire
galaxy.  Riker answers that age-old riddle, "How do you keep a Trekkie
in suspense for three months?"

Thread title could have gone a couple different ways ;)

Thankfully, it was the safe route -- talking about D&D *characters* and their IQ :-)

"Safe" so the not math-loving, creative types... gotcha. :P

Floppo's gotta floppo.

Of the classic goodie oldies, this one's probably my favorite (because it's so hypnotically repetitious, just like the original) -- Sweet Dreams by The Eurythmics <<< the comments are especially punny too.


Close 2nd = The Kids Aren't Alright by The Offspring (especially since I saw them live this summer at K-Days. In the pouring rain. With zero regrets.)
