The Problem with Parasprites by Saber-Scorpion The Problem with Parasprites by Saber-Scorpion
A pony parody of this image: [link]

The Discord episodes of MLP:FiM spawned tons of Star Trek TNG / pony crossovers, obviously, but I've never seen much fan art based on the parasprites in "Swarm of the Century" being an obvious reference to tribbles. I set about to rectify this issue.

Though, now that I think about it, Rainbow Dash probably would have made a better match for Kirk, despite Twilight obviously being the leader. She's more of a Spock type.

Anyway, enjoy!

In reply to comments on how I adapted the uniform for ponies: Funnily enough, I didn't have to change much, since Kirk's green shirt actually has the emblem on the side: [link] Strange, huh?

Rainbow Dash: My clover sandwich and cider. This is my clover sandwich and cider. I want these things out of town. I don't care if this takes every pony; I want these things out of town!

"1,771,561. That is assuming 1 parasprite, multiplying with an average litter of 10 producing a new generation every 12 hours over a period of 3 days." :iconspockplz:

I love seeing ST/MLP crossovers, this was a clever idea :D

Between them hiring John De Lancie to voice Discord, and what I've heard about some of the MLP creators being big Trekkies, I think it was intentional...

There's also a reference to Gremlins in the episode. Spike mentions that he gave a parasprite a snack after midnight...
