Don’t bother telling me this video is old. I know it’s old. But I hadn’t seen it before Tyler S. brought it to my attention, and based on how many YouTube views it has, less than a 25th of you guys have seen it either. Besides, it’s six and a half minutes of Worf, Mighty Klingon Warrior, getting his ass handed to him, and I think we can all agree that’s as good a way to end the day as any. Hell, after watching this, I think I could take Worf, and I’m a fat nerd with asthma. He’s like the Glass Joe of the Star Trek universe.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
