This is pretty sweet. Wired Magazine is featuring 10 of the Cheesiest Classic Creatures to celebrate Tuesday's release of the first season of Star Trek: The Original Series in an HD DVD/DVD combo pack. The list comes complete with some nice screen grabs along with each creatures powers and weaknesses.
My favorite is this white gorilla with a horn and spines from the episode: "A Private Little War".
Powers: Poison, brute strength, surprising stealth.
Weaknesses: Women in bright-orange fun fur, blatant flouting of the Prime Directive.
Thanks to the magic of high def, and a painstaking digital remastering effort, we can now see these monsters in more detail than ever before - not that that's really always a good thing...
Take me to the Cheesy Monsters.
