Timelines Haiku challenge

Since there's been a severe decline in general levity on the forums these last two weeks, here's my feeble attempt to bring some fun back.

Haiku's in traditional 3-line 5/7/5 syllable format will be accepted. The winner, judged by a compliant Haiku with the most "Awesomes", gets a free AEC. Syllables may be rented at one per token, but they expire after 3 hours making the Haiku noncompliant. Rented syllables have only a 65% chance of making sense.

Round 1:

Skirmish honor drops
Like snow wrapped in ample chrons
Grind, my captain, grind

Hello young Wesley!
The dark void of space beckons...
Kirk hits "Eject Pod".

New gold way too strong!
New gold not nearly strong enough!
@Shan faceplants again

That Massive Value
gave me blue, purple and cubes
Rent check will be late

Your Mirror Jean Luc
Vaguely homoerotic
Forms a mighty wall

(Is @Shan one syllable or two?

Accepted. Mark them, Galt.

    Yeah, I think the "@" makes it two, haha. But since I've only seen one Shan on this forum, I think you can leave it off. ;)

    people tell me that
    it's really sort of old hat
    just omit the "at"

    (absolutely awful haiku, but do I get points for rhyming?)

    Extra points for the haiku-meric, or limeriku.
    Accepted. Mark them, Galt.

    3. Only pursue characters I care about.
    4. Contribute to the fleet.
    5. No more spending beyond monthly cards.
    6. Have fun.
    7. Voyage.
    8. Have fun!

    Enterprise is bad,
    Discovery is quite good,
    Deep Space Nine is best.
