"The Most Interesting Man In The World" Was In Star Trek

One of my favorite commercials of the last several years has been Dos Equis' "Most Interesting Man In The World" series.

The commercials feature a distinguished looking man in his 70s, always smartly dressed, and always surrounded by beautiful young women and excited people.  The narrator lists his many accomplishments, feats and achievements, such as "he is the only man to ace a Rorschach test," "his legend precedes him the way lightning precedes thunder," "if he were to mail a letter without postage, it would still get there," and "he once punched a magician...that's right, you heard me."

The man is actually actor Jonathan Goldsmith, and blog points out that Goldsmith appeared in Star Trek: The Original Series, in the episode"The Corbomite Maneuver."

Knowing the Most Interesting Man In The World appeared on the Most Interesting SciFi Show In The World, we humbly offer the following:

His beard can make the Vulcan hand salute.

His personal magnetism is often mistaken for a tractor beam.

Capt. Kirk got to be the ladies man he is by reading merely the index of his little black book.

He can speak Klingon in Romulan.

His phaser is set to "stunning."

His beard always transports ahead of him, just in case there's trouble.

His wink has been known to stun a charging Gorn.

He can recharge dilithium crystals with just his smile.

The galactic library Memory Alpha calls him for fact-checking.

His beard is worshipped by Tribbles.

His hailing frequencies are always open...for adventure!

He is...The Most Interesting Man In The Star Trek World.  

"Stay Trekkie, my friends."
