The following picture appears on the 404 error page on Stack Exchange Chat:

Star Trek?

My minimal knowledge of Star Trek tells me that these men are Captain Jean-Luc Picard (on the right), First Officer William Riker (on the left), and Lieutenant Worf (in the background), officers on the Enterprise during Star Trek TNG.

But where does this picture originate? Is it a screenshot taken from an episode of Star Trek? If so, which one? A Youtube clip including this scene would be great, if anyone has one!

Bonus points if you can explain why they're wearing funny hats: this picture's title is "404_funny_hats.jpg".

  • I did a reverse Google image search... :-P – FuzzyBoots Oct 13 '15 at 0:10
  • Whether this is a real dupe might actually be questionable, as the other question was "Is this photoshopped?" – FuzzyBoots Oct 13 '15 at 0:11
  • the answer to the linked dupe not only explains that it's photoshopped but also what episode it's from. – KutuluMike Oct 13 '15 at 0:14

    This is a picture of three men who love their mothers and aren't afraid of anything. – Rogue Jedi Oct 13 '15 at 1:19

It looks like, the last time this image got asked after, people figured it came from here. And the original shot is a teaser image for "Q Who":

    Love the way there's a cursor hanging over the image enough to annoy me! – Often Right Oct 13 '15 at 0:43
