Star Trek:TOS/TNG Combadge Mashup

Nothing like a good old-fashioned, no wait.. new generation.. no, old fashio–dammit it’s a mashup! Unable to choose just one, Andy Balkus got this tattoo of a combination of the original Star Trek and the Next Generation combadges. He writes:

I got this because Star Trek has been my moral compass since early childhood. Both The Original Series and The Next Generation spoke to me and really shaped my outlook on life. It lead me into a life of public service, including The Marine Corps and law enforcement. Sure, they got a little preachy from time to time (thanks Wesley Crusher) but it’s way simpler and a lot more forgiving than any established religion.
