"There's a monster on the wing! It's a gremlin!"
"What's that, sir? What's the problem?"
"There a gremlin on the wing of this aircraft! We'll have to go to warp speed to destroy it!"
"Wait a minute, Shatner. True, this episode of Twilight Zone is about a gremlin, but that line's not in the script."
"Spock .... Bones! We ... must... stop .... the .... gremlin ... or ... face .... imminent .... doom!"

Submitted for your approval is Nightmare at 20, 000 Feet, a classic episode of Twilight Zone starring a young, jittery William Shatner frantically trying to convince a plane's passengers and crew there is a deadly gremlin on the wing, and also the source for my Friday Fictioneers entree today.
Apparently Mr. Shatner's outsized ego and overemoting were well known even back in those days. You won't find an outsized ego in the bunch here among the other Fictioneers, however, you can Takei it from me!
Live long and prosper, dudes.
