riker fan art tngYes, there's an entire web site lovingly dedicated to the man, Number One himself, Commander William Riker from Star Trek: The Next Generation. And why not? If you ask me, the Enterprise D's seductively stocky first officer is just as iconic as Spock, Kirk or Picard. His beard alone deserves its own web site, or at least a Facebook fan page. And what about that unforgettable walk? Have you ever seen a man pace so confidently with his head unnaturally tilted to one side? While wearing a unitard? I don't think so.

These are things that deserve recognition, and the folks at, er, this place, are happy to dole it out.

The Riker site mostly consists of screenshots of Jonathan Frakes pizzazing his way through every single TNG episode ever made, but some spirited -- and damn funny -- fan art has recently popped up on the home page. Check out a few of our faves from the gallery below.
