We’ve all experienced it: that moment of stupefying frustration that makes you put your head in your hand, wondering how you can put up with it for even another second… and there may be no more famous ‘facepalm’ moment then Captain Picard’s frustration with a newly-human Q in “Deja Q.”

While the now-infamous image of Picard’s exasperation has become a well-known meme online over the last decade, and has appeared on T-shirts and other printed merchandise over the years, ThinkGeek (in partnership with Icon Heroes) hasnow brought the facepalm to the third dimension with their new desktop bust:

The bust measures 6″ tall and weighs approximately 1lb — it debuted online today and is retailing as a ThinkGeek exclusive — and we’ve got one of these Picard sculpts available to give away to one lucky TrekCore reader!

There have been so many funny moments in the Star Trek franchise, but we want you to think about your biggest laugh and answer the following question in the comments below:

From “The Cage” to “Will You Take My Hand?” — and all the episodes and films in between — let us know your favorite comedic Star Trek moment by Saturday night, and thanks to ThinkGeek, one of you lucky entrants will be able to add this Picard bust to your own collection.

Make your mark in the comments below, and watch for our winner notification on May 6!


We will email our selected winner, drawn randomly from all entrants on May 6, and send a follow-up email 48-hours later to confirm mailing information. If we do not receive a reply within 24 hours of our follow-up, an alternate winner will be chosen.
