This ‘Star Trek’ Locutus Of Borg Cake Will Be Assimilated By Your Mouth

Few season finales are as memorable as Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s season 3 closer, “The Best of Both Worlds“. Not only did it reinvent the Borg, but it ended on a high-stakes cliffhanger with Captain Picard having been assimilated into the Borg Collective and Riker giving the order to fire on his now-former commanding officer and friend. It’s a sizzling bit of telly even now, and it elevated The Next Generation from being thought of by fans as “that other Star Trek show” to being considered… well, Star Trek.

A perfect moment, then for Paul Redmond of Purple Feather Cake Design to immortalize in cake form for his entry to the Cake: The Final Frontier celebration (the same celebration that gave us that awesome chocolate Scotty bust). Opting to recreate the head of Locutus – Captain Picard’s Borg alter ego – this thing is so detailed that when the page first loaded on my computer I thought I might be looking at a makeup test from the show itself, applied to a dummy or prop head. But nope! That’s the cake!

Paul had some trouble getting the cake to Las Vegas for this year’s official Star Trek convention. ” I shipped my piece over but alas transwarp conduits haven’t been discovered yet and he didn’t quite materialize in one piece.” A shame. Good thing it didn’t happen to the real Locutus. He’ll bite your head clean off, man. Check out more photos of the cake below.
