Why not have the original cast of Star Trek knitted up as meerkats?
Well, there's just no reason now, is there? So here you go! But maybe the original cast isn't your thing. It's too corny. Well, we've got that covered!
Here's The Next Generation. I like the Reading Rainbow guy's eye thingy. Alright, alright. You don't like the Next Generation either?
Have some Janeway. (She's a little hard to recognize without that awful hair).
Or maybe Chakotay!
Yeah. I have no idea why they are meerkats, but I think they are pretty cute. Plus they are knitted, and I have to give props to anyone crazy enough to knit something like this. My brain is almost ready to explode just thinking about how difficult this would be to do. Anyway, if you want to pick one of these little buggers up, just go to Niftyknits etsy site! She seems to be ready and willing to make custom orders, too, so feel free to ask for a Tom Paris meerket but as a lizard from that one episode where he turned into a lizard and had lizard babies with Captain Janeway. Yeah, that's right.
